Just saw this comment. Nice to hear! said Jedediah Parish of of the show at University of New Haven on December 10, 1993

Our first show with the Pit. I was so stoked to play a show with them. said FOV Rick of of the show at University of New Haven on December 10, 1993

My favorite Pit song. Have the 7", and Shark LP. said FOV Rick of the song The Devil

There were fistfights in the audience. Pete Caldes was there before he was in The Pit. said Jedediah Parish of of the show at The Palace in Stafford Springs, CT on April 5, 1990

I'm giving this one a 7 out of 7, not because it is "perfect" but because I feel like The Gravel Pit doesn't have a better song. "Speak, I pray you, in the ears of all the men of Shechem: Which is better for you, that all the sons of Jerubbaal, who are threescore and ten persons, rule over you, or that one rule over you?" Judges 9 said Jedediah Parish of the song The Rise Of Abimelech DuMont

Not my absolute favorite off the cd, but this one holds special meaning as it was my introduction to the band. said Paul H of the song Officer Dwight Boyd

Excellent, Pitboss. The song's rating increased one full point. said Jedediah Parish of the song Officer Dwight Boyd

I have to give this one the top rating. I distinctly remember hearing y'all play this the first time I saw you live (that show at Toad's with Miracle Legion), and deciding at that moment that the Gravel Pit was most likely my favorite band in the world. So thanks for that. said The Pitboss of the song Officer Dwight Boyd

I'm pretty sure the melody of the bridge was subconsciously lifted from the bass part at the beginning of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love said Jedediah Parish of the song Officer Dwight Boyd

Pre-Ed & Pete. This was a cool club. Definitely the first time playing Philadelphia; it may have been the first time I was ever there! said Jedediah Parish of of the show at Khyber Pass in Philadelphia, PA on December 1, 1990

Fascinating, mayorQ. Just so you know, you can REVISE your rating at any time. We will all be learning a little about each other - and ourselves - along the way. said Jedediah Parish of the song Stingray

I think to make this rating thing work I have to use the whole scale, meaning at least one of every number. In that context, this is a 4 or 5. This may take a while. said mayorQ of the song Stingray

The Pitboss, your logic is sound. A similar thing can be said about how many Donald Fagans there are per song. See the bridge (at approx 1:46) of Barrytown. -> Barrytown by Steely Dan said Jedediah Parish of the song Stingray

How many Jeds are singing on "20,000 down"? I'm guessing six, hence my rating of this song. The general rule of thumb is that the more Jeds there are singing, the better a track is. That's why everything ever recorded by The Beatles sucks. said The Pitboss of the song Stingray

It seems, at least as time has gone on, every album by The Gravel Pit has one catchy "hit single" type of song. Certainly "Favorite" and "Baby Gap" fit that bill and "Stingray" seems to keep the tradition going. I'm really very fond of this one, not just the chords and words but what the band and recording process did to it. said Jedediah Parish of the song Stingray

I played the hell out of this 7" on WYBC. To all three people who listened. said The Pitboss of the song The Devil

First Gravel Pit song I ever heard, on the "Blood From The Streets Of New Haven" compilation CD. said The Pitboss of the song The Dark Cloud Dance

I'm pretty sure Ed Valauskas was in the audience. said Jedediah Parish of of the show at Candlelight by the Sea in East Haven, CT on September 1, 1990

This show I remember more than the others, probably because of the weird venue right up the street from my house. said Marice Massengirl of of the show at Candlelight by the Sea in East Haven, CT on September 1, 1990

I remember this show. Awesomeness. said Marice Massengirl of of the show at The Grotto in New Haven, CT on September 24, 1988

We were playing with New Haven royalty! said Jedediah Parish of of the show at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT on September 18, 1994

My first Pit show! said The Pitboss of of the show at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT on September 18, 1994

The photo above was taken at this show by Steve Latham said Jedediah Parish of of the show at The Rathskeller (The Rat) in Boston, MA on May 10, 1997

The photo above was taken at this show by Steve Latham said Jedediah Parish of of the show at GPSCY in New Haven, CT on September 26, 1997

I enjoy this one as the best hard-rocking album. Almost all hits and no misses. said Jedediah Parish of the release Mass Avenue Freeze-Out

According to the internet it began as The Paradise Theater and became either Paradise Rock Club or The Paradise Rock Club. We'll call it The Paradise, since that's what people call it. Paradise, the gay bar in Cambridge seems to still be open. Its official name is Paradise Cafe. said Jedediah Parish of of the show at The Paradise in Boston, MA on June 22, 1996

Not to put too fine a point on it, but "Paradise" was a gay bar in Central Square. I believe you guys played at "The Paradise". My apologies if I am wrong about that though. said Brendan Haley of of the show at The Paradise in Boston, MA on June 22, 1996

The Gravel Pit set at this might be the best sounding show I ever mixed. said Brendan Haley of of the show at The Paradise in Boston, MA on September 13, 2002

I was probably the headliner. Just saying. said Brendan Haley of of the show at TT The Bear's Place in Cambridge, MA on September 2, 1994

I'm gonna hurt the dog said tommybgoode of of the show at Coginchaug Regional High School in Durham, CT on May 17, 1985

I'm very pleased with how this one turned out said Jedediah Parish of the release Serpent Umbrella
