Metric Lips

Postby PointSpecial » Mon Jan 11, 2010 10:20 pm

Hi guys,

I've got a bunch of different live recordings of Bigfoot and I've heard the "story..." I think my favorite version is one from 1995 when Sam Bush was playing with them at Green Acres... but I digress.

Anyway, I've heard the story and they said there's a followup called Metric Lips. Do you know if the Flecktones have ever played it, or if it was only New Grass Revival? And, either way... does anybody have the "story" of Metric Lips?

Thanks in advance!

Actually... I didn't utilize all of my resources.

Looks like they played it once: http://www.archivesincowtown.org/fullso ... p?song=561

Actually, it looks like that wasn't the Flecktones, but rather Bela, Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas in concert (click on the date in your link to see the full setlist, then check the personnel listing at the top).

It's funny you should mention Metric Lips, because I just recently found out there's a video of New Grass Revival doing that tune on youtube. Here's a link:

Nice! Looks like that was just after Bela's mullet took a swim down stream.

Thanks for the link, Don!
