|Stuart Davis’ December 2, 2000 show at Karl’s in Morris, MN.Remember that time when Stuart was driving through the desert and the devi Parvati (who represents One-ness) was hitch-hiking (apparently she was fed up, or wanted to be by herself for awhile, tired as she was of all the divisiveness in the world) and Stu picked her up and gave her a ride — and in so doing, brought some balance to the earth? Well me neither but I thought it might make a cute cover. This is the last cover with Stuart’s van in it, since he reports during this show that the transmission went. This is a front cover (with a fold) because the recording is only 1 cd in length so you could use a single slim case for it and you won’t need a back cover panel.|
|Stuart Davis’ June 19, 1999 show at the Mill in Iowa City.This live disc was originally titled “Eclipse” by someone and I don’t know why; there may be other cover art out there that explains it. For my cover I kept the title but went with a religious theme, even though it sounds like BS to me that Eve was to blame. Note that the fruit that Eve is holding up lines up with the temple. The back cover picture is from Stu’s visit to Iowa a year earlier, when he shaved some heads, including Jenny Lee’s. The pic was too good not to use somewhere, so I figured, it should at least be placed on the cover of another show in Iowa, at the least. This is a front cover (with a fold) because this set uses 3 cds, and if you’re like me you use those slim 3-disc holders which have no place for tray art.|

This is a front cover (with a fold) because this set uses 3 cds, and if you’re like me you use those slim 3-disc holders which have no place for tray art. When I saw the “air filled sculpture” by Lewis deSoto (a 26 foot long painted-fabric Reclining Buddha which inflates when a fan is turned on, and deflates when off), I was impressed. And I wanted to save the promo pics of it. So this cover art is essentially a convenience for myself; I can save the pics of deSota’s art while simultaneously clothing the punk-monk’s discs. The time frame is correct: this sculpture was created in 1999.
|Okay, here we go, this is Dream Usher, a 13-track bootleg of Stuart’s November 19th performance at the Center of the Universe Coffee House in Northfield, Minnesota on November 19th, 1998. Includes such non-album gems as Eight Days in the Lotus, Even the Devil is God, Imminence, Only Echoes (listed as Untitled, no not that Untitled, and Transpersonal Cowboy.|
|This is the last one that I finished, entitled Only Echoes culled from the ever so cool annual Escape the Relatives Holiday concert. It presents several songs that have gone unplayed for years as well as some new stuff and the usual assortment of wondrous bits.|
