Now you've seen the Crestline Village Theater.  Built as a Movie Theater in the early 30's with a good size stage and dance area plus 450 comfortable theater seats. well raked for perfect unobstucted viewing.  Renovating it was a challenge taking over 20 workers several months to bring it to the opening a few weeks ago. The challenge is how to make use of it in the best way.  A community theater available for multi media events close to the Film/TV  industry in Hollywood up in the Mountains in a beautiful SwissLike setting with Olde World Country Charm.  A perfect room for Jerry Jeff and Jimmy Buffet and Joni Mitchell or some western country stars.  Blues goes great here because of the exceptional acoustics giving the voice a naturalness of delivery. 

I enjoyed the Harp Playing at The Crash Inn Cafe later.  Also the piano playing.

I asked Tony Arnold early on for an inventory, log, duration, dates, artists, publishers, and the correspondence to the Majors going back several years.  All of whom passed but released or bought a little taste of the whole archive.  All the MultriTrack of Fred Neil consists of 3 hours of Cafe' au Go Go Live plus 10 covers recorded at Bayshore Studios, produced by FredRickPeteHarveyDino for CBS who passed and proceeded to do another version of the same 10 Songs in New Jersey produced by Rick and Fred.  One is Jasmine Towne and another is December Dream.

I only heard JasmineTowne on  Hosted by Tony Arnold(King Crimson)...........there was also a special Tim Hardin and a great Karen Dalton, and the spectacular Dave Van Ronk with a British Back Up Studio BAND doin'  Nobody Knows you When You're Down and Out" remixed in Dorset, England at Arnies' Shack(Ampex).  The analogue remixes and safeties have carefully been stored.  They are being worked on for DVD and a compendium of the period incorporating 30-40 artists photographed in 16mm Kodak Colour Ekt 7242 and Digitally transfered to D2 after an edit and colour correction, cleaning, etc..............An on going overseas project since 1991 Videoarts, Japan and airing on NHK/TV Japan.  Its been stalled for years and recently revived, faltered, stumbled, Fell only to get up again and try to make it happen.

I checked out that Fox thing . . . ummm all under 25. Not much about songwriting. Maybe I could host a similar show for seniors now that the baybeeboomers are retiring :) Call it 2nd Avenue Review or (here I go again with the Rocky & Bullwinkle show), Take This Retirement & Show It . . . I ain't playing shuffle board no'mo . . .

Mar Music has a bit about Starting a Righteous Writers Night

Talked to Bob and he like the 1031 idea. I'll see him tomorrow, n' try to get his digital camera. If not wallmart's throwaway at $4 and change will do the job with about $10 in film processing.

Didn't know you were such a good noodler on the ivories.

I spoke to Bill Murray about your visit and about Bob.  It would be good if he came up and latched on to the next several weeks through July 4th Weeken and have a great Jam with Harmonica Fats and the Bunch.  Lets see here now, 450 seats @$22 times 20 days = 900 tickets daily = 18,000 tixs @ $22 = $396,000 Gross which we would split 60/40.  You take care of all press, publicity, marketing.  We'll even show the Dolphin Project tapes with their permission.  I'm glad I produced those recording of Fred for that project for Ric O.  You bring in sound, lights, video, recording, equipment and we'll supply the rest out of our end.

Maybe we could do a Dolphin Project Benefit there for a weekend and invite all the living celebrities I know, who think they owe me a living.  What JOYful Consciouness Raising if Cyber Sat Dish Upload to our Sites and Databses available worldwide.

Thats it for me, i'm going to be a piano noodler some day and cruise.  Right now though I'm opening a Theater, Cabaret, Coffe Haus, production company (vertically integrated).  I would enjoy spending some millions of the reserve uncollected by so many of my friends to spread the Joyful Noise about the World again.

Yeah the FOX show hosted by our client had a 15 share and is destined to be a huge success for EMI and FOX and Full Circle Mgt.  Brian Dunkleman is now a bonifide Star.  A $2,000,000 prize for a winning song is a new wrinkle in the Music Biz.

I was so happy to see the cafeaugogo website again yesterday.......the tony arnold one is coming along as well as the Japaneze site and the others springs up arround the world.  Cafe' au Go Go..............what a one can own it not even me the creator and owner through the beginning and thick and thin.  Now I'm 74 and I still feel the connection to it by the 300 or so artistes I presented produced filmed recorded video'd, etc....A lot got out and some lost in the ethereal place where things get done karmicly and beings can't change the outcome, no matter how hard they try to impede what's correct and right in the total order of things.  I wish I could hear all the FRED NEIL I own and control but lost to others in foreign lands where I have no more insight as to their intentions without my permissions.  Nevertheless I would enjoy hearing my work again as I always have before.  Paid? Never. You couldn't pay me enough for all I did to make great artistry happen.  Too much out of me for so little return.

Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, Karen Dalton, Dave Van Ronk, and others around the piano and the DVD's of Muddy Waters, Butterfield Blues Band, Joni Mitchell, Odetta, James Cotton Blues Band and exquisite shots of the au Go Go.  B. B. King playing and singing like royalty.  Dylan's Subterranean Blues (PennyBaker) and so much more.  I hope BOEING Digital will equip my theater for uploads from dish to sat and delivered seamlessly to my stand along site in the middle of towne near the lake and pines in the California Sunshine. 

We will interact with other cafe's in the Club Network plus the some 79 Screens already in place and growing fast.  Using Avica and Christie digitizing programming in all forms and media is exciting to bring to a Stand Alone Theater located high up in the mountains for more reach.  High definition (HDTV) in a larger theater is exciting in any form.  First runs are enhanced as well as other great programming especially when its developed in house for the Digital Format.

I still have some wonderful unreleased masters of Bob Gibson at Cafe au Go Go and Woodstock. I'd enjoy putting it out.

The Fred Neil Archive I have here which sas returned by Sundazed months ago is here doing nothing.  50 boxes of multitrack pluse priceless demos made in the 50's, 60's on acetate is in itself a body of work.  If Fred didnt want them released then why id he insist on recording them?  He was a savvy street smart Pro who knew how to make a buck while enjoying his craft.  He practiced, he wrote, he arranged and produced.  He tried his best to do what the industry of his time wanted him to do.

Feels a little like old times getting a theater going and doing some concerts and evenings of Comedy.......     ........In November they are doing a concert in memory of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and others....admission $5 with psychic reading  and all the popcorn you can eat.  Maybe Panama and Denis will show with some Grove/Village players.
