Remember the giant peanut that went to Jimmy Carter in Washington DC? It was carved by this man, Jack Navarro. He also carved the deers at the entrance of Redwood Park in Arcata, as well as those great, large figures scattered around the HSU campus. Jack sat on the hiring committee when I interviewed for a job at HSU and convinced the others to hire me. He trained me to drive the trash truck. He bought the old city dump on Aldergrove and turned it into a beautiful park, refurbished the weigh station into a very comfortable house. He would throw great parties at that place. He passed away about six years ago. He was such a good friend. Nicki found this tape and posted it in My Space. It's so good to see his smiling face once again. And check out the one with Dean Porter playing congas at one of Jack's parties. I was playing keyboard, Larry Rushing on guitar, Mark Rios on drums, Chuck Mayville on bass and Bill Wardrip, harmonica. We called ourselves Razeyerhair.
Dean beating the drums.
Our friend Loretta Del Rey used to play our tapes on her radio show.
*Correction, looking at the Razeyerhair tape more closely I see that is me on rhythm guitar. I would usually play keyboard. And Stan Moyle and Larry Fuller on lead with wah wahs.
