  1. Second set was probably 45 minutes. First set was quite long, so I wasn't surprised. My guess is the Dead played too long for their first set that night and realized they needed to do an abridged second set. I thought the setlist in general was odd. I can't recall ever coming across an electric 2 set Dead show with every song played as a standalone song. Second night at The Hamilton was definitely the better night, and I am not just saying that because it was a Pig-o-rama. I would give it a solid 8/10 and the first night a 6/10. Could've been an even better show if the second set matched the calibur of the first.
  2. How could one not walk down the street and pay $40 to hear DSO do a Dark Star>Two Souls? My only regret was going up front for the second set. Apparently I have forgotten everything I learned.
  3. '72-'74 themed electric. Set 1 ?? ?? Black Throated Wind Mr. Charlie Box of Rain Beat It On Down the Line Loose Lucy You Ain't Woman Enough Me and Bobby Mcgee Scarlet Begonias Set 2 Not Fade Away> China Cat Sunflower> I Know You Rider> Not Fade Away Greatest Story Ever Told Dark Star> The Stranger (Two Souls in Communion) One More Saturday Night Encore Midnight Moonlight I missed the first sound or two. Someone mentioned they opened with Here Comes Sunshine.
  4. The DSO version last night was much more like the The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan version than that Ratdog version. Maybe was even faster than the original Dylan version. It's a great song lyrically. The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan was always one of my favorite Dylan albums. Very much worth a listen if you have never heard it before.
  5. Positive it was Masters of War. I also, wasn't sure if they performed Wonderful World before. The Masters of War was awesome with Lisa singing it. I would hope DSO adds it to their acoustic repertoire.
  6. Set 1 All Around This World [MISSING?] Friend of the Devil Stir It Up* Jack A Roe Wonderful World -- Skip lead vocals w/ Tonya the road manager Big Boss Man Sitting In Limbo Masters of War* -- Lisa vocals It's Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry Bird Song* Set 2 Dupree's Diamond Blues Mountains of the Moon Sing Your Blues Away* Dire Wolf Box of Rain* Tomorrow is Forever* Rueben and Cherise* Russian Lullaby* Viola Lee Blues*--played in it's original jug band form Ripple Encores Uncle John's Band Goodnight Irene *Notable performance Very much enjoyed the show. It is never the high energy dance party of an electric, but still great stuff and you always get to hear some less common songs. I am sorry for Eaton's family situation. I did enjoy the different mix of songs due to his absence. The Masters of War was a real treat, and the Box of Rain was a very heartfelt rendition from Skip that stood out. I honestly forgot how good of a singer Skip is. Goodnight all

  9. March 6th, 1976 Moore's Egyptian Theater, Seattle, WA - Moonlight Mile This is one of those songs, where I like the Jerry version significantly more than the original. I just love what he did with this song. I think this song is much better slowed down as much as it is. Brings the sort of sense of the long nights on the road with nothing but your own thoughts to keep you company. I think the female vocals add a lot to the feeling as well.
  10. April 2nd, 1989 Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, PA - Man Smart Women Smarter To the millions across the world who went out and protested yesterday. Regardless of the politics behind it, I respect anyone who will go out and stand up for what they believe in without resorting to violence.
  11. Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders 1973-11-03 Keystone, Berkeley, CA. Was playing part of this show for Mason a couple of days ago. Probably in my top 3 for Jerry/Merl shows. One of the few shows where I honestly think the first set is better than the second. And, not that there is anything disappointing about the second set. The first set is just that hot! Happy new year, everyone!
  12. Oct. 21, 1978 Winterland San Fransico, CA Hot show overall, but the final sequence is something else. Got My Mojo Workin'>The Other One>Stella Blue Probably on of the finest Other One's played post haitus.
  13. Dick's Picks 18 - 2/3/1978 & 2/5/1978 Why am I listening to the GD? Not entirely sure. That said, there is something I wrote a week or two ago that I feel is quite applicable to the music of the Grateful Dead and may provide some reasoning as to why... Truly good music grows on you. You hear more each time you listen to it. Sounds you never heard before have somehow snuck their way into the song, yet the song has always been the same. It makes you think. You grow old with the song. And, one day, you die. The goodbye is always sweet, as the song still remains for someone else to find meaning in it just as you did. It's an infinitely looping process of birth and death with the music being the constant. All good art is eternal. The music hasn't been much of a priority in my life lately and seemingly may not ever again, but I cannot deny it's everlasting beauty. Peace out bitchez, Mikey Mike
  14. Dick's Picks 29 5/19/1977; it has been a while since I have listened to this release...forgot how good it is. Just finished the Sugaree. Although I like listening to many years of the Dead, 77 I have always felt is special in that Jerry took his solos to whole new levels that year. He was relentless and daring. Just finished hiking across Bryce Canyon this weekend. The more I see, the more I realize there is so much left unfinished in my life.
  15. More Fall '79...Franklin's Tower 11/9 Buffalo Memorial Auditorium - Buffalo, NY -- a Hampton sized arena--the perfect size...demolished in 2009, but the Dead sure did play some ragers there while she was still standing.
