I do.

Let John sing, turn him up, and let him off his leash !

not even so much during solos because he is ringing then but during the tune itself..sometime's he's playing signature licks the most obvious to me is the playin snarly lick that jerry used all the time during that...johns doin it but you can barely ever hear it, getting lost in the mix...i notice it on black throated wind, looks like rain, tunes where the lead has room to noodle around...it's there, just tough to focus in on a lot of the time because it sounds a little quiet

Plus one -- listening to Jerry blister his way through this let it grow from 3-6-81 you can hear him "cutting through" the sound like a swiss Knife...

I agree - I thought he sounded louder in november through all the jaming but still hard to hear during any vocal parts.

Yeah, he did seem more "up" in the mix. But it may have had something to do with my position in the arena.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

TURN JOHN UP! I've been saying this (& Let John Sing!) for awhile. There were times I could see John just Shreddin' it, but the volume should've been up!

I agree to a certain extent;

I Love the ensemble sound which Furthur has (essentially 5 lead players) cultivated, But now and then I like the security that one person leading the band through the fog tends to create
Which is one of the reason I enjoy Jeff Chimenti as much as I do,
He can play that 8 headed dragon gig, Or take the Reins and show Bob and Phil where we're going,
His versatility amazes me constantly, Never fails to send me for a loop when the band is in the middle of a balls to the wall free for all jam and all of the sudden Jeff breaks out of it and plays the simplest little thing that somehow complements the highly intricate jam inwhich everyone else is participating (Have actually heard him play a little "Pop goes the weasle" Riff that perfectly complemented the rest of the band)

Ahh but this is about Johnny, Yes turn him up!
