    Are you kidding?.. 177 shows and counting as of 8/10/17. The DSO Bus came by (on 6/23/99) and I got ON; that's when it all began.

  1. I thought the highlights were Bird Song, Greatest Story (there were mouths agape in stunned amazement during it), and definitely the Lovelight. Lots of tunes had a slower take, I thought, and I was digging it. LOVE the original setlists done in a specific style. Looking forward to listening - thanks again stdilbert
  2. One of the best shows I've seen. Start to finish. Period. Thanks, Minnesota, for getting the recording up SO quickly. Well done!!
  3. I wasn't near the fire dancers, but from my vantage point in front of the SBD they looked cool. The timing of them coming out, and probably the location, seems to be less than ideal. However, my biggest complaint of yet another AWESOME Jubilee would have to be the lack of those hand washing stations near the porta-johns. The hand sanitizer a) doesn't clean your hands and b) leaves them really sticky. And keep bringing the Giants, including the giant caterpillar bendy thing. Love the spectacle. Aside from the caterpillar they move around and don't block anyone's view for more than a few moments.
  4. This was awesome! Big fan of the Garcia-lead GD renditions of the tune, in particular the 7/1/85 version. Jerry's guitar playing, while not exactly perfect, is exquisite and emotionally powerful, as are his vocals, especially when he sings the "forget about the dead you left, THEY WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU" line. It's like there's a little Chewbacca in him, lol, as his voice resonates from the back of his throat. Really worth checking out. Thank you John!
  5. 20 years for me, coming up this June (6/23/99 at Graffiti's in Pittsburgh where they did 9/11/87). I went because I missed live Dead music (only 3 GD shows, all the summer of '95, for me) and I expected a decent/good show, but I couldn't have imagined that DSO would be the PERFECT thing to fill the void left by the Dead. I was a budding deadhead in '95 with a 100 hours or so of tapes, and in '99 I was ironically a already a relic, of sorts, with several more hundred hours to listen to on XLII's, but no LIVE show to go see/experience/participate in. Futhur Festival was good, but didn't quite cut it for me, and neither did any other "jam" band, not even the ABB. I needed live Grateful Dead music, and played at a certain level, I might add. I had seen several cover bands in the years right after Jerry checked out, but it just wasn't good enough. Then 6/23/99 everything changed for me. The WHOLE show was like a dead show. Sounded like a dead show. Was improvised, like a dead show. It even had a drums/space that rivaled what the boyz used to do. Drumz, and Scott's Brent-esque vocals, are what really won me over that night. And as I approach 20 years of seeing this band, I can't imagine what my life would have been like without them. As they are to many of you, to me these shows are, I can't think of the proper word(s) to put here.. spiritual, magical, educational, chaotic, liturgical, "rite-of-passage-al", poetic.. I think you get the idea. Like I said before, DSO has perfectly filled the void. Shows 192 - 194 coming up at the Jubilee, and hoping to hit 200 in 2019. polished like a golden bowlthe finest ever seen

    Atlanta #2

    Not sure who all was in attendance, but Lisa singing on Jack Straw followed by a West LA (which debuts in 82 if I'm not mistaken), solidified this as an Original from the GetGo. Sorry I don't mean to be one of "those guys" We had Lisa on Jack Straw, Cassidy, All Over Now, Corrina, Help, Franklin's, The Wheel, China Doll, and Let It Rock (harmonica). Barraco does a Jeapordy tuning before Jackaroe. Tom Thumb included starting out on Prilosec, if I heard right, and definitely went back to Fulton County. Set 2 opened up with Barraco and Jeff playing around with the "extra" section to Terrapin (what is that, At A Siding?). But enough of the details, let's get to what's really important... GREAT SHOW. Perhaps not the spaciest or jammiest ever, but it had great high energy and was just plain FUN all night. Definitely my favorite of the 2 Atlantas. Jack had that awesome buildup and subsequent explosion. Cassidy, Big RxR, and All Over Now were pretty ripping. Stranger and Franklin's (although not together) were the highlights of a 2nd set that started hot and never cooled down. Nothing was in there that was down in any way. And I loved the transition from Corrina > Help. I'd like to hear that again, actually.. Had a great much needed weekend away. Thank you DSO. See ya at the Jubilee.

    Minglewood and Deal were quite killer in the 1st set. Jeff was teasing something bluesy like a ZZTop tune right before Deal, and Eaton seemed to be confused by this, haha. Shakedown, Drumz > Other One including a little Roll were tasty as well but the best was yet to come on Night 2....
  8. AWESOME. Thanks for recording and posting Dave!
  9. Hehheh, thanks. As one who tried to memorize Deadbase back in the day, I saw that they'd list the Anymores in the Tape Timings section, and so I tend to count em at the end of every Bertha. Just one of those things that I always do at shows I also hold up my beverage at "Inspiration" in Terrapin, pound my chest at "some are mathematicians" in Tangled Up (I teach the stuff), and giggle like a schoolgirl whenever a singer blows a line because I can't help it; I just find that damn funny and enjoyable. Shows the boys are for real, and what's going down on stage, is for real. Funny thing I JUST realized though.... I don't think I've EVER seen Lisa mess up a line. EVER. Guess the Women (truly) Are Smarter. Ha!
  10. theCause w/ Jeff Mattson and Lisa Mackey 3/23/19 Rex Theater Pittsburgh, PA Acoustic w/Randy Bauman on keys Dire Wolf Bird Song Monkey and The Engineer Rosalie McFall Cassidy To Lay Me Down On The Road Again Ripple Electric 1 Iko Sugaree Big River ? Country song sung by bass player Black-Throated Wind China Cat > Love The One Your With > I Know You Rider Might As Well Electric 2 w/ Randy Bauman on keys (most/all?) Shakedown Saint Etta James song (Don't Make Me Cry?) Lazy Lightning > Supplication ? Jeff Original ? theCause Original > Bertha White Rabbit With A Little Help From My Friends (w/ several guest singers) Jeff on everything. Lisa on 3/4 of it all. GREAT night. Some transitions to/from the jams within songs were a little iffy, but the raw power of it all more than made up for it. Lots of spirited play. The whole acoustic set was sublime, especially Rosalie and To Lay Me Down. Beautiful harmony between Lisa and Jill. Crazy surprise between China and Rider. Awesome Shakedown, and whatever that Etta James song was was just KILLED by Jill. Might have been my favorite tune of the night. Anyone know the Jeff original? It kinda reminded me of a Trey Anastasio composition, which is not a criticism lol just an observation theCause's original was a catchy tune as well. 15 "anymore's" to end the Bertha. White Rabbit. I've heard it a few times now, but I think this was THE one. Brought. The. House. Down. The people near me not familiar with Lisa were blown away. I was like, she's always like this! LOL No, the Rabbit was a really REALLY good Rabbit. Help From My Friends was played and even sung in that Joe Cocker at Woodstock-ish way, and was the perfect end to a great night. See you all there next year!!!!
  11. Closest show for us in the Pittsburgh area is about 4.5 hours away, either the 6/30 Sylvania, OH or the 8/2 Rochester, NY. In fact there seems to be a pretty big void, kind of a big circle jetting off the southeast side of Lake Erie that swallows up Columbus, Buffalo, Cleveland, & Pittsburgh. Kinda strange, seeing as they played Canalside (Buffalo) the last several years, if I'm correct. Stage AE in Pittsburgh has seen summer shows as recently as 2017. I would love any addition, including a return trip to Springfield, OH as Rude mentioned. Regardless, the Jubilee is a given for me - and I'm SOOOOOO thankful that this monumental annual event is only 3 hours from me. And I can probably swing at least one and *possibly* a couple more other shows this summer. Still hoping for those additions but I will find a way to get enough DSO dosage! 😄
  12. Just off the top of my head. Albums that are exquisite. Pink Floyd - Dark Side (always the 1st album I think of when the "greatest album" talk comes up) John Coltrane - A Love Supreme Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Derek & The Dominos - Layla Jimi Hendrix - Blues (1994) Grateful Dead - Live Dead Easily just as good but not released as an album per se: Dick's Picks Vol. 1 (12/19/73)
  13. Just ridin' and runnin' across those desert saAAANDS! I always thought that "runnin' and gunnin'" would have had more of an edge to it
  14. THANK YOU Hardpan! I love live music, and then listening to it again and again, year after year. Well done!
  15. I've known this, for years and years, but it really it home Saturday at the Anthem. DSO, no matter how they play on a given night (and it usually goes quite swimmingly), really just plain NAILS the sound, arrangements, and feel of the songs from whatever era it is diving into. As an old cassette collector, I might appreciate that as much or maybe even more than how well they play. Musically, it was 1973 at the Anthem. Random notes: 5 beat BIODTL. Nobody's Fault and Other One teases in the Truckin jam, Lisa sounded amazing on China Doll, great transition right into Me & My Uncle right from Loser, and Rider had that perfect early 70's tempo and perfectly pleasant jam in it. I was very happy with the filler tune - thank you Rob B - because it's my 15 year old daughter's favorite GD song, or at least 2nd behind Scarlet, maybe, and after the show announcement I say to her, "Ok here comes the Mr. Charlie, nyuk nyuk" in my most dad voice ever. And then the Charlie drops.. and the smiles ensue. If anyone's got audience recordings, drop em on the archive, etree, or just lemme know where to get em! Peace!
