                                                   Cover concept by Me,Myself, & I

For one last Robert Hunter post I give you a partial recording from Robert and the band Comfort. This recording is from My Father's Place, Roslyn, NY on 5-27-78. In this post I have put together a few of the tunes from his sets on that evening with the thought of giving a feel for the Alligator Moon LP that he had recorded a year or so before with Comfort. Hunter says his was never satsified with the final results of that recording and it has never been released.

1 Keys To The Rain
2 It Must Have Been The Roses
3 Big Wind
4 Promontory Rider *
5 All The Same
6 Alligator Moon Suite*
7 Blue Note *
8 New East Saint Louis Blues *
9 Friend Of The Devil
10 Wild Bill
11 Tiger Rose
12 Jesse James *
13 Cruel White Water
14 That Train
15 Ripple
16 Rum Runners

* An Alligator Moon Song

Thanks for all the Robert Hunter. I saw him once with Barry Melton in (probably) 1976. I look forward to hearing Jack O' Roses and others I didn't have on LP.

I was hoping you would have posted Amagamalin Street. Used to have it on cassette and was a favorite of mine with Cipollina's guitar.Another one I wish I still had is Mickey Hart's Rolling Thunder but that goes back to 8- track tapes.

Thanks for all you do. There is always something at your site to enjoy.

I am Richard McNees (spelled correcty), and I co-wrote this with Hunter. I enjoyed hearing this very much. I had left the band at the time, but this is a very in interesting treatment of the song and communicates the drama we had visualized. It is missing some of my elements, but has unexpected others and was a very pleasant recollection or our collaborative process. Hunter is a great writer and willing to take an extra step.
