    hey Rob,

    did you catch the show? a night of highs (Nona Hendryx, Corey Glover, Sandra St. Victor, and best of all, THE MAN himself joining Cornell Dupree for “Grandma’s Hands”) and lows (Howard Tate’s criminal assault on “Hope She’ll Be Happier”). but all in all, a lovely celebration of a brilliant songwriter.

    No, Eric, unfortunately, I was out of town for the weekend. I’m sure, however, given the lineup, the highs were pretty high.
