    There's no way to measure his greatness or magnitude as a person or as a player. I don't think eulogizing will do him justice--he was that great. Much more than a superb musician with an uncanny ear and dexterity. He is the very spirit personified of whatever is muddy river country at it's core and screams up into the spheres. He really had no equal...There are a lot of spaces and advances between the Carter family, Buddy Holly and, say, Ornette Coleman. A lot of universes. But he filled them all without being a member of any school. His playing was moody, awesome, sophisticated, hypnotic and subtle. There is no way to convey his loss, it's too great. Bob Dylan--August 1995.

  4. I actually have known people back when I was in college who did just that. But the overwhelming majority of us don't. We just listen to lots and lots of new stuff we can get our hands on of everything Garcia and have for lots and lots of years. And after a bit, stuff starts to creep into our Amygdalas. I've found it unavoidable. How the hell are all the starheads doing? Hugs and love to each one of you. Emmy celebrating her her mom's B-day while in Tulum last month!
  5. That pic is my daughter trying to turn up the music.

    A China Doll from Deer Creek 1990 was playing and the solo had JUST started.

  6. ^^ FYI...Good article in last month's UNCUT
  7. First show off the mat at the Stone was a couple weeks before that.
  8. Agreed...Garcia and Lesh are mind melding with the creator, whomever that is. That's the only possible explanation. Listen to that Deal too.
  9. LOL. (That is the first time I've ever used that!) And this is from someone not adverse to a little exaggeration. But nonetheless, I love it.
  10. The Archive lets you stream the sdb of only the shows that have not been officially released. This one has been officially released as a Dick's Pick, so only the auds are available of this one on the Archive.
  11. Oops...forgot 11/4/77 Jones gang show. And that bumps Augusta. Augusta doesn't even make the top 5! And this list is only from the shows he's attended that I know about!
  12. I'm going to make a list of my top 5 shows Jon had been to....for me. And I'm not going to take more than 30 seconds to think of the rankings (only way to rank these kinds of shows if you don't want to start hearing voices). 4/24/78 Normal 7/8/78 Red Rocks 5/9/77 Buffalo 10/21/78 Winterland 10/12/84 Augusta God damn!
  13. Lou Reed is one of my musical heroes. One of my gods-- ^^^That live album is incredible and this one ain't too bad either. For pure, unadulterated POWER that only a genius like Lou could unleash...this album is not to be believed. The Coney Island Baby is just the most powerful fucking version of any song anywhere and the Satellite of Love and Pale Blue Eyes aren't that far behind. His band sounds like an orchestra at times, it's so lush and full. One of the greats in terms of live albums--only meant for the serious Lou fans though. My guess is that you've been listening to this one before I knew what a bottle of milk was but just in case...and for any others out there who may be fans of one of the greatest American song writers we have.
  14. Speaking of guitar solos..the stuff Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter are able to do which was captured by the above live album Mr. Vegas references is pretty fucking insane. The album didn't waste any time in capturing the magic that could happen with those two either, with the Intro to Sweet Jane to open, and it just gets better from there. They are the perfect counterparts to one another; their style and sound are unmistakable. Incredible guitar play.
