If you have never heard Lydia Pense sing, and don't know the significance of a song called "Down To the Bone," then you won't be impressed to see her autograph on a Fillmore West postcard, which I received when I was on the Fillmore's mailing list for about a year. This card is pretty beat up (it spent several winters in a tree fort), but when Lydia Pense and Cold Blood played a free outdoor gig a few years back, a brought it with me and waited in line to get her signature on it. " I used to have all those posters," she said, in a tone of voice of someone who had seen it all, "but somebody jacked 'em." Oh man: She could still bring it.
