Cuyahoga Falls ’84

Good morning, and where’s the aspirin? We’re having Mr and Mrs Magic Fingers over for the weekend which, so far, has meant loads of fun — and Grimbergen. Anyway: on to this week’s Friday Boot which happens to be Cuyahoga Falls, OH, 12 August 1984. Yes, you read right: 1984. Enjoy…

    Track #1 sounds more like Zoot Allures to me…!?

    I head right…? There’s a big difference between kneeling down and bending over!

    Wikipedia: “The town was initially called Manchester but was renamed Cuyahoga Falls at the request of the Post Office since there were already several other Manchesters in Ohio”.

    Right you are. Changed the title, and it looks like the universe is back in balance again!

  7. Magic Fingers says:

    And regards to you too, Bernard, good sir. Can it really have been nearly a year ago….?

    fz seemed really ‘on it’ for guitar solos this show, i don’t think i’ve ever heard a 6 min hot plate solo from 1984, with a louie louie quote as well !
    but i knew it wouldn’t be an 84 solo without that trademark ‘stock ’84 descending scale riff’..you know what i mean, but what scale is it, anyone know?

  9. Harmless Ted says:

    Dunno about the scale, but this is a very powerfully played concert. Thanks for posting!

    The downloaded “Keep it Greasy” is turning out only 1:22, and “Joe’s Garage” only 2:20. Are those the correct lengths, or are they downloading wrong somehow?

    The hour-long trans-con phone call was the best gift I’ve received in 2007! So many thanks for that.
    Happy B-day and Love and hugs to all at Barry Towers…

    Ah, but it is not Barry’s b-day yet! It was just a AAAFNRAA reunion .
    You are welcome! and it was our pleasure!

    My first comment here, but i’ve been enjoying the shows for a while now. That scale Frank always plays on this tour? Well, it’s called a whole tone scale….the one exception to the rule that he always plays something different in his solos! Didn’t think i’d enjoy an ’84 show this much, but it was great!

  14. timmo says:

    whole tone eh, thanks, i just learnt that the other day! :D figured i needed to learn some theory with to augment my guerilla guitar techniques..
