    While '93 was generally tough, December '93 is exceedingly so. But to your question, it was the ambience. The Grateful Dead were on stage. Anything seemed possible. (And as of Dec '93 I generally believed that, although that belief would erode rapidly.)

    Channel separation

    When Jerry is coming out of one channel only, it makes that loudspeaker sound like it's his guitar stack. And that's a good thing.

    Channel separation

    I like the separation, makes it easier to pick out each instrument individually. I haven't listened to this show in a while- it's next in the que

    I'm attempting to listen to today from 1993. Its rough...like really not very good. I'm guessing the ambiance helped? Or drugs? As i type am kind of enjoying Vince's piano solo on eyes. Gna skip to days between. After a steady diet of 72-74...well...yeah.

    That’s funny. Yea, I was reading on line. They’re saying Phil got a new Bass in’83 and wanted to try it out on St. Stephen.

    Steely Dan does not have meaningful lyrics like the dead. They are generally cynical, sarcastic, or speaking about something specific. Kind of the opposite. To me it's just fun music, not even on the same planet as GD. But i still love it. I get why you don't.

    Second set pre-drums about as good as gets for the era. Praise DSO.

    Saint Stephen played three times in 1983 after a 352 show absence. 10/11/83 MSG 10/15/83 Hartford 10/31/83 San Rafael I did shows with a guy whose first two shows were MSG and Hartford, and was like "so they play this St. Stephen song every nite" timing is everything. I also love that the Anthem thread won't die. Praise DSO.

    your post implied that the Grateful Dead brought Saint Stephen off the shelf and broke it back out again. I wasn’t aware of that if they did. I don’t have deadbase, enjoy learning more about the band based on what the cat dragged home, whatever comes my way. Foreplay is the best. Just googled it. Wow! You learn something new every day. ....don’t be surprised if you find me dreaming too....

    Huh?

    Couldn’t agree more. Steely Dan WAS my band before I found Jerry and the boys. There’s a reason they have had such success. They’re that good.

    I guess what not really connecting with me is I don’t feel it. Technical excellent playing. Drummer on point but I don’t feel emotion from the singer or the playing. Been listening to a lot of blues lately. Drips with emotion. Ain’t no love in the heart of the city Btw, WS Wolcott medicine show has a great dance groove.

    St.Stephen at the garden? Grateful Dead? Really? I was there for RFK Casey Jones bust out. Pretty cool with train horns. A friend was at unbroken chain breakout. He said the whole place just went Naaah! At the same time.

    Aja can be listened to in it’s entirety. I think it’s best served up that way. Reckoning is another album like that. Just play the whole thing. Steely Dan used to have a ‘bootleg’ floating around called ‘you gotta walk it like you talk it, or you’ll lose that beat.’ I can’t remember if it was any good, but I had it a hundred years ago.

    Mason, I would gander you would like Steely Dan’s “Fire in the Hole”; it has good chops.

    Spot on. I think The Rolling Stones are equally as important as the Beatles and as you said certainly more accomplished. I certainly enjoy them more... but I also would enjoy 30+ other bands more than the Beatles. I think you should go see them if it’s in your realm of possibilities.

    I took in AKG 460's in a "horn hat" with a D5 for this Cardinal Stadium show. It got rough towards the end when half the audience left our row on the floor and the lights were on the audience, keeping from ushers seeing us, but we made it out with the tapes.

    Deacon blues is a good song. Listen to Steve Gadd’s drumming on Aja.
  22. Mason's Child

    Rolling stones

    Full album or the song? I like music that makes me move my feet dance. I like dance music but my dance music. Otherwise it bores me. I’ve listened to about half the album so far. Not bad but I don’t love it so far. I’ll finish and repeat once see if it takes stronger hold. Vocals are too airy for me. I like the tempo changes mid song but I don’t. It’s definitely not dance music at times.

    I just hate to commit to a 1off show middle of what I know will Be Dso summer tour... I could make the Chicago 21 or the 25th work but don’t know what to do. GA field is going up about $1 a day on stunhub and that’s what I want. The seats are like $600-1500. Wtf. Older peeps I guess. I saw steel wheels tour in 1989 in Louisville. I went up and waited in line all night for tickets with a high school buddy.

    I saw Stones few years back in KC. Few days later saw DSO in KC. Good times.

    Corruption of the Stones thread!! Jk 😜 people may argue the Beatles were the most important band ever but the stones are the most accomplished. They are at like 55+yrs of touring with early songs that sound modern plus so many styles of songs throughout their career. Paint it black was 66 and still resonates. Of course they don’t tour every year. They are like 77,75 and 73 I think?

    Rock and roll without Jazz influence bores me. Put on "Aja" and enjoy
