    Thank you so much. I’d like to say hello to Joni Mitchell tonight, who’s in the crowd somewhere. Maybe you can find her with that spotlight? And Tom Petty is here. He’s a new rising star. Rock n Roll! I’d like to say hello to him too. And I think Racquel Welch is still here! Stand up Racquel! I think a whole lot of this band and I wanna introduce them to you now. My favorite band is a band I saw play with Bobby Blue Band, 1968 I recall in New York. And this band comes as close to that band as I can find. So, on the drums, Ian Wallace. From Barbados, on the keyboards, Alan Pasqua. On the bass guitar, Jerry Scheff. On the rhythm guitar, the loner of the group, Mr. Steve Soles. On the violin and the mandolin, steel guitar, the baby of the group, very young, David Mansfield, on the tenor saxophone, Mr. Steve Douglas. On the conga drums Bobbye Hall. So, the female vocalists, background vocalists. Girls that make me cry every night, all night! Carolyn Dennis, Jo Ann Harris and Helena Springs! On the lead guitar, Billy Cross. This is called It’s Alright Ma, I’m Only Bleeding.
  28. It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)

    Thank you. Well, like Jerry Garcia would say. We’re gonna beat it on down the line. Well, we hope you had a good time. We think these songs do mean some thing to you. So, have a real safe trip home. We’re gonna be out of the country for awhile, though we’ll be back from far distant lands, so I hope we see each other again sometime.
  29. Forever Young

    Here’s an old song. I wrote this in New York.
  30. The Times They Are A-Changin’

    Here are the first 4 tracks recorded by Mike Millard…. If the link doesn’t work go to roio and follow the link to vol 4 just above comments…

  2. The 1978 versions of “Tangled Up In Blue” are transcendental.

    These lines expressed as a Gospel Cantata is beyond words.

    Absolutely beautiful.

  3. I think your transcription where he was introducing the band is off, I think he said “My favorite band is a band I heard play with Bobby Blue band in 1963 at the Apollo Theater in New York… “
