Jimmy Carl set list: July 28, Yalaha Bakery

Another very nice afternoon at Yalaha Bakery! Thanks much to Anne Marie Klumb and the staff for always making all the Cavemen feel so welcome. Thanks also to the band for use of the blog space to record Jimmy Carl’s solo sets for posterity.

A wide range of covers today in three sets that also marked a return to old favorites by Bob Dylan and the Fab Four. For that influence, a big thanks to Jimmy Carl’s former Sentinel colleague and podmate Betsey Maupin and her husband, Jay Yellen, big fans of Bob and the Beatles. It was a delightful surprise to see you all!

The Cavemen will return to the bakery in the fall.

Jimmy Carl set list: June 30, Yalaha Bakery

A fine afternoon on Saturday at Yalaha Bakery in lovely Lake County, where cloudy skies kept the summer temperatures pleasant and an attentive crowd contributed to another fun time.

At one point, the sun emerged at last, persuaded by the positive vibes generated from the stage and the audience, I’m quite sure. That’s our story, anyhow, and we’re sticking to it.

A few new entries in the set list, including another lesser known Ry Cooder chestnut and a solo take on Dave Alvin’s “Fourth of July” in honor of the upcoming holiday. (The third set, alas, was curtailed when the rains finally arrived.)

Jimmy Carl returns to the bakery on July 28. He’s enjoying the chance to stretch into the solitary realm and again offers thanks to the Cavemen for the flexibility. Thanks also for use of the blog space to record the set list.

Here ’tis:

Set. 1. The Circle Game (Joni Mitchell cover); 55; Marlena*; If Not For You* (Bob Dylan cover); No Expectations** (Rolling Stones cover); Sloop John B** (Beach Boys cover); If Walls Could Talk (Little Milton/Ry Cooder cover); Woodstock*** (Joni Mitchell cover); Horizon Moon***.
