NORAH JONES
Alaska 2019 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Bear Tooth Theatre, Anchorage, AK; August 3, 2019. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to original taper Steve “ballsdeep” Hagar; Dennis Orr (mastering); and dorrcoq for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.

+ + + + +

Original notes:

Headed down to the venue around 4:00 pm, as there wasn’t a ticket in my grubby little hand.

After the prior night’s excellent show, it was a no-brainer to try and make it into the other two, but with resale tix hitting $800 (!!!) leading up to the show, my budget was $100 per night max.

Had a Craigslist ticket lined up (they were driving from Kenai, me down from Palmer) for exactly that, stayed in communication with them… then during my 40-mile drive in (which I’d texted them was happening)… they *sold it* in those 40 minutes, as I “didn’t text them back”. (NO SHIT!)

So, of course, in true “Dr. Deeps Karmatic Fashion” I ran up to the box office at 5:30, and there was ONE GA ticket ($58) left in the system… but it was in a cart!

So, Live Nation Angel (it feels so funny saying that) Brandy kept refreshing the page… for 15 minutes, as a line 10 deep built up behind moi.

And, of course, SUCCESS! (would it be any other way?) #karmatoburn

I got the ticket, and the show was errficially SOLD OUT!

Then, on to the show itself:

- moved 5 yards closer to the stage than the night before, and to my ears, this one sounds more “immediate”, more clarity, just better overall sound (not that ‘Night One’ is anything to sneeze at)

- songs WERE changed up… not dramatically, but it was far from a carbon copy of the night prior…

- I hear less garbage being thrown in the can on this one (tried to get ahead of it vs. it being to my immediate left)

And then the full blown “goosebumps magic” moment of the night (going from memory here):

Right before she was to play the final song of the main set… some girl screamed out a request (unintelligible to these ears)… Norah replied (paraphrasing here) “that’s the best request I’ve heard in a while… I love that song… but we haven’t played that in forever… the band doesn’t know it… maybe I can try it solo… what key did I play that in?”

She then broke into an utterly gorgeous version of “Hands On The Wheel”, and the band jumped in about 1/2 of the way thru (subtle bass lines, little organ flourishes, minimal percussion, but you can hear some cymbals for sure), ***like they’d been playing it forever***

Then things really got interesting…

Norah had heard, when the girl screamed the request, that the “girl’s grandfather” had written “Hands On The Wheel”.

So after playing it, *leaving the stage*, coming back for encore song 1, playing that…

Then Norah asked “I loved playing that song, is that girl still here, or did she leave… so your grandfather wrote that song, “Hands On The Wheel”?”

The girl replied that no, it was her fiance’s grandpa… then Norah… sounded a tad annoyed (like maybe the reason for playing it was disingenuous), and she says “cool… cool” a couple times, then asks “Where was he from”?

When the girl replied “cant remember the town name - in Kentucky”, that seemed to placate Norah, and her voice went back to that “happy tone”, and broke into “Don’t Be Denied” (the closer all three nights, perhaps she worked it up for the Anchorage crowd, with the altered lyrics and whatnot), before again exiting without playing “Lonestar” (on the setlist all three nights, but not played… I have no idea if that was the song played over the PA when the show was over, or if it was an ‘inside joke’ (Dennis’ suggestion)

Oh yeh: we also learned this night two “very important things” about Ms Jones (haha):

1. the only sports she ever played in her life was when she attended Wendler Jr High in Anchorage (JV Volleyball)

2. she also attended her very first concert ever when living in Anchorage (MC Hammer)

So that’s the best verbal garbage I can dump on you for this one… of course there’s another GREAT story for the next one, so stay tuned and all that shit.

THANK Dennis (seriously, it’s ridiculous how he cranks this stuff out with the promptness, with accurate setlists/lineups/who performs when/etc.)

And if you don’t like being “told what to do”, then just tell me to fuck off.

It’s ok, I can handle it. Thick skin and wide shoulders aid immensely in that endeavor… but that still doesn’t mean you shouldn’t thank Dennis (hint hint)

T’was a very smart decision to not blow these gigs off.

- Dr Deep had a hell of a weekend, this was the ‘cream filling’ of the Oreo’…

    By Porn Starr on Apr 16, 2022

  7. Rumor has it This is a young lady who prefers Big Uns

    By U L E on Apr 16, 2022

  8. A foot long is a micro penis by Uncle Milte standards . He was said to have a two footer

    By Scaromouch on Apr 16, 2022

  9. My god you guys , 12 inches is perfect. Size definitely matters , but 2 foot long ? Shit boy , that would hurt like hell , probably kill me . No thanks , I’ll take the 12 inch all day . He can work it better . The 2 footer would work him . Biggest I’ve had so far is a 14 inch and that hurt like a MF

    By Katie Kessler on Apr 16, 2022

  10. I’m a southern girl , always fantasized about black guys , my girlfriends say they is way way bigger generally speaking, barring exceptions. My daddy and granddaddy are both racists and hate blacks . They would skin me alive if the found out I screwed one and probably shoot the black dude . Grandpa was in the klan when he was young

    By Katie Kessler on Apr 16, 2022

    By U L E on Apr 16, 2022

  15. Bull, we needs to hose these niggers down. Get the german shepherds to rip their balls off. Time has come to resurrect the KKK. Lynchings need to come back also. Nothing like seeing a bunch of niggers hanging alongside the road on I-95. That would bring a tear to my eye.Niggers have changed the culture in America. We needs to ship them back to Africa

    By George Wallace on Apr 17, 2022

  16. I hates to sound paranoid but me thinks U-L-E is gaslighting me into doing gloryholes. I dont mind watching my slut wife suck coc k after coc k and spunking on her face. But I’m starting to get the urge to join my wife and suck on some manmeat

    ‘Hush Your Mouth’ by Mickey Finn & The Blue Men was released
    On the 17th of April 1964, ‘Hush Your Mouth’ by Mickey Finn and the Blue Men was released.

    This is one of the sessions I did whilst I was still at art school and on this I played harmonica. Mickey Finn and the Blue Men had applied a blue beat rhythm to the Jimmy Reid song ‘Hush Your Mouth’. I had done other recordings with this band: the guys were cool and were always good to play with.

    On this day in 1960, Eddie Cochran died in a road traffic accident in Chippenham, Wiltshire. RIP.

    By Jimmy Page on Apr 17, 2022

  18. The name stealers led by Hebrew Mark have been working overtime here lately I see . I haven’t been commenting all that much .

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  19. I agree with everything Bull and George Wallace said . More lynchings , burning crosses , tar and featherings and hangings is what this country needs . Sad to say it won’t happen . Too many black ape and jew loving liberal socialists in the country

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  20. We need a ku klux klan revival to take care of the violent black apes . Maybe then they wouldn’t dare even look at a White mudshark slut . As for the jew scum , a nazi revival would be nice . Build more camps with many more ovens . Adolf had the right idea , but needed way more ovens

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  21. Anti and Derrick, Nelson if you’re still around that Brooklyn subway shooter was another violent black ape . Also most of the violence against slopes and chinks in America are from black apes

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  22. That’s something that the far left liberal news media dosent want to mention

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  23. I’m still her hhh , I say build ovens for the jews and niggers .. burn all their asses

    By Nelson on Apr 17, 2022

  24. HHH/Nelson, I havent been around either but I agree with Bull Connor and George Wallace. Every single nigger out there feel they are entitled. My attitude is entitle this. Too many left wing liberals are giving the niggers power over the white man. We are now the minority. The fucking world is upside down. Bring back Jim Crow, lynchings, german shepherds, fire hoses and separate water fountains,back of the bus.

    By The Anti Christ on Apr 17, 2022

  25. I watched quite a few American Greed episodes and every single one of them involved a fuckin Jew running Ponzi schemes, real estate fraud, selling tickets to a phony concert, all kinds of nefarious schemes. Fuckin Jew bastards are worse than the niggers. Niggers are dumb and just plain stupid. Not the fuckin Jew. They manage the garment industry and all the jewelry stores on 47th street in New York

    By The Anti Christ on Apr 17, 2022

  26. Anti , Nelson , also Derrick ( are you still with us ) ? Just wait until title 42 comes to an end in May . You think all the scumbag illegal murderers, rapists , child molesters , cartels etc are bad now , just wait . The southern border is a sespool, thanks to that disgusting dementia ridden , walking , stuttering corpse Joe Blow Biden .a puppet for the far left socialists who are really controlling America.

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  27. It’s literally unsafe to leave your home anymore. You see illegal spicks , Haitians, Mid East terrorists, Muslims etc , basically everyone from everywhere on the streets . People are being murdered on the streets , in apartments, houses etc . It’s getting to be third world in America much faster than expected. The rich elite , liberal socialists who control the country feel safe because they feel protected in their mansions and gated communities. They don’t want that scum in their neighborhoods , they want them in ours .

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  28. Greg Abbott and Ron Desantis have the right idea . Send them to Washington and Delaware. Put them right on dementia Joes front lawn . Start sending plane loads instead of bus loads . Send them to AOCs house as well as the rest of the squad , same with Pelosi , and Chuckie Wuckie Schumer . . Put them right at their mansion gates .

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  29. Hhh , did you see Biden reach out to shake somebody’s hand ? No one was there . What a brain dead piece of shit . Country is in trouble.

    By Nelson on Apr 17, 2022

  30. How about when he said they won’t let me go to Ukraine. Who the fuck is running the country? I thought the president was the boss

    By Nelson on Apr 17, 2022

  31. That’s right . Dementia Joe is just a puppet. He’s being told what to say , when to say it and which reporters to take questions from . Jen Psaki is actually joes boss . Yes Raggedy Ann herself.

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  32. Joe spends his days mostly eating ice cream , between his many long naps as well as occasional blow jobs under the Oval Office desk by AOC . He wears boxer shorts to keep his ankles warm

    By HHH on Apr 17, 2022

  33. HHH/Anti,Nelson Its been awhile for me also seeing the way the site has become full of faggots,twinks,bulldykes,sissies,fairies etc. Joe Biden has fucked this cuntry real bad. You see whats going on in NY. Noone wants to ride the trains anymore for fear of getting shot. What a mess…Happy Easter to all the ladies and mens and to Hebrew Mark and Whopper Swapper

    By Derrick on Apr 17, 2022

  34. After ranting about Sleepy Joe etc, I just dropped a big turd in my shorts. Feels nice and warm and squishy. Im getting spread that on some toast and pretend its Nutella. Ummmmmmmmmmm….u want some Whopper Swapper

Jerruh Jones paid off cheerleaders to shut their pie holes bout an executive bein a peeping Tom in their dressing room . He was takin naked pictures wit his cell camera while jackin off they say . He resigned and Jerruh paid off the bitches

    By Derrick on Apr 17, 2022

  53. No one reads my jackoff garbage

    By Derrick on Apr 17, 2022

  54. Kelvin Joseph another rapper type coon who is a cornerback, involved in a shooting. Jerruh was warned not to draft these hip hoppers , but he never listens to nobody . Always does shit his way . That’s why they ain’t been to the super bowl since the 95 season
