about

Over several years, Clay Ruby released seven Dick’s Picks-style releases of live Wooden Wand material under the series title "From the Road." Volume 7 is my favorite, as it is the only extant live evidence of the raucous, reckless, and short-lived Sky High Band. This one’s a collage of the best moments from the band’s October 2006 West Coast tour, and features Wooden Wand, Glenn Donaldson, Shayde Sartin, Jessica Bowen, Kelly Nyland, Clay Ruby, and Jason Quever. Up until just a few years ago, this was, in my opinion, the finest live band to ever play Wooden Wand material, and listening to these versions still gives me goosebumps. Some, err, classic jokes and banter included, too.
