    A curious question about GD vs DSO

    I was thinking, as I do often, among other things. I pose this question: If you had a choice, would you rather attend a 68-69 DSO show or would choose a 89 Greatful Dead show? Someone once told me they tour DSO, but they listen to GD. I listen to both. But, I wonder how others feel if giving a choice between live appearances. My answer above is easy. Even if a alpine or a hampton. But now that many of you have witnessed a sold out red rocks by both, what is your flavor? In Thailand, there is a saying, same same, but different. What's your difference!!!

    Red Rocks 7-8-18

    Super happy for so many of you. Saw some group photos, and your smiles were a good sign of the magic. Could not be happier that DSO sold out Red Rocks. Hope that gives me a chance to make the next round. Hopefully for back to back nights!!! Safe travels to many, and for those.sticking around the Rockies to enjoy a magnificent geology, enjoy the paths you take!!  It's a strange feeling to be as happy as I am for others and as bummed as I am to miss out, but that awkwardness is too part of that magic!!! Sold out Red Rocks. Wow. Thst would.have to be the largest crowd ever. I said when I first hopped on this bus, DSO will be playing stadiums one day..... I dont want stadium shows, as I love the sound and dance space to much, but I want this music to forever be part of my kids, and their kids option for release. This is the first step, and I dont seeing it going away. Love yall....be good, be safe, and enjoy the Colorado terrain!!! Warmest of wishes.....china rider filler.....who does not wish they were a headlight, I certainly do!!!

    Jubilee #3

    That's a dancer's setlist if I have ever seen one. Sad I missed many of you, but life.also needs time for it's own set breaks. Safe travels home. I always start feeling sad Monday morning, people packing up. Admitting the fun is over.

    Jubilee 2018 Roll Call

    I think they let us in earlier at a time or two. It's amazing how things work when excited and kind!! Watched a white rabbit with my mom last night. How cool to see the move and groove through a crowd. Missing yall memorial day. Makes.the next year that much sweeter!!

    Jubilee 2018 Roll Call

    Have a good time brother. I started my jubilee run with you!! Seems so long ago now.....maybe, just maybe, I can be considered a star head now. I think the boss tightened your lid after that run. Somewhere I remeber stopping by the sheriff office to pay a ticket....from the previous year? Dont get a flat in ohio!!! Safe travels bro!!

    Anyone at the RFK show when they busted out the horns for the Casey comeback? Was that 94?

    6.11.93 - recreation at Jubilee

    I went to many shows this summer, never saw sting, as I preferred the lot than sting. I thought it was a strange opening act for GD. I also think Hornesby was still helping out with the band? I made it out to buckeye lake that year, but I dont recall sting as a opening act. RFK and Meadowlands for sure. I think a two night run at each venue. Buckeye lake....I want to say Pine knob afterwards.....then Bonner springs.... It's always good to feel the energy of these boards before jubilee. Shedding our winter spring coats for shorts and sundresses. Such a awesome time of year for GD. Remeber how excited we got preparing for tour. Even more so then, no responsablities, tour was cheap, always found a ride to the next show, and most always hooked back up with the ride you lost from the previous venue. Saturday morning cartoons was a big deal for me as a child, but summer tour was the coolest thing I ever did in my young life. Graduated HS in 93. Old to some, but young to so many more. It saddens me my kids will never know that exhileration. Cartoons every day of the week now, no real opportunity to hit the road as we did at such young ages, and the ability to trust strangers to get you from 1 place to the next. Even though GD shows did turn to some dark places towards the end, it was still a sight to witness. Caravan of hippies in what ever wheels they could get....following GD. What a golden road for so many of our memories!!!

    A wise lawyer, and yes, there are still some of those around, showed me this once. Little did he know, I have tried to aspire to wash away my white, right, southern, no rhythm dance to emulate more of the soulful richness so related to the music we love. Thanks chuck!! Your 1 in a million

    Why is it I can relate to Lurche's dancing groove. I think lurch could hang with many of us!! Still trying to get the soul out of the train!!

    If I go, it will be with the grace of God. Won't know till last minute, but if I can't, I am happy so many of you will!! Miss many of ya'll, always eager to meet many more. Safe travels, dont break 2 laws at once while traveling, and enjoy the time together as much as the music we all love. A good time for sure!!

    Sound Board Quality post 70's

    Thank you for taking the time to help me understand this John!! 12-27 show is a wonderful nug. I am super surprised to hear that GD went to memerox tapes then keeping the reel to reel. Perhaps this is why many don't talk fondly of Mr Healy. It's amazing to me how much the sound guy, or gal, really effects the music we love. I miss the music....hope you get some of DSO sounds while they are out west John A... Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!!

    Sound Board Quality post 70's

    I am sure this has been discussed byond my own curiosity. I know I have discussed it in person with some on here, but I would really love to get some definatives. Why, with the technological advancements in electronics, data transfer, and over a decade to improve on, did the Sound Boards of the 80's and 90's suffer a serious downgrade in recorded music . Betty Boards, I get that, but was the knowledge not passed on? Was it no longer cared about as much? It's very surprising to me. I am listening to a 82 sbd from San Fran at the moment. Good music, no doubt, the Althea is smooth, long, and groovey, but the his, the lack of detail, and the muffle vocals and music is just shit. Compared to just 4 years earlier. It sounds like a bootleg from 66. If you just heard the Dead, you would not of guessed this is recorded music from the 80's as compared to a lot of 71 shows. The music still rocks, the recorded sound quality just sucks comparably. Please share your knowledge
