2. Saw Spirit at Fillmore East right after 12 dreams was released.

An unforgettable show. I played their first album until the needle broke through to the other side of the record.

Uncle Jack

Gazing on the seaweed skies
Falling down before your eyes
He can show you (show you).

Have you met my Uncle Jack ?
Have you met my Uncle Jack ?
Wonder what you're all about
He can bring the inside out
He can show you (show you).

'So many lives to live' - I heard him say
'But some people live to give themselves away'
'To find peace of mind, waiting where they can't get it'.

Standing there, he's so deceiving
Has he been or is he leaving
Looking in his sea green eyes
Uncle Jack will tell no lies
Can you see it ?

'So many lives to live' - I heard him say
'But some people live to give themselves away'
'To find peace of mind, waiting where they can't get it'.

Have you met my Uncle Jack ?
I want to take you in hand
Let you see and you will understand
I can show you.

3. I loved Spirit when I was in high school.

Saw them 3X at Fillmore West in late 60s, once at Winterland Fall 1970 2nd billed to Ike and Tina Turner Review, and last at a now defunct club in Eureka, CA in 1993 (only originals were Cassidy and California, I talked to them after the show and told them how mu8ch they had enhanced my teens). Still have a stack of Fillmore/Fillmore West/Winterland handbills; diminished and damaged.

Spirit was a great great band of musicians.
