  1. Nice write up, John. Interesting that you mention the Terrapin into Dew sequence. I recently went hunting for every instance the band did it, because of how majestic those three notes to kick off the Dew emerge from the ashes of the Terrapin on the Pembroke Pines version. To my surprise, as far as I could find, they only did it four times, all in 77, all the Dews you mention besides Barton Hall. There is a very recent soundboard upload to the Archive of the last fifteen seconds of Terrapin, Morning Dew and the remainder of the 2/27 show, transferred by Rob Eaton and Charlie Miller. Thanks Rob 🙂

    When I first started, I thought it would detract from my fun, but I've found that it is really easy, no tape flips with digital, but I've had a couple grueling nights of trying to keep my stand up in high traffic areas in packed venues. Those are the recordings I treasure the most, though. Thank you and other tapers for getting your fob captures, some of the most killer stuff. It had to be so much fun. Do you have any of your tapes up on the archive at all? I was thinking of trying to set up another stand at the Jubilee this year to get a really wide spread, no idea if it's worth it or whether my mics would warrant it, but it might be fun, or at least an ordeal 🙂

    Yes indeed, that's always my plan now since I started taping. Trying to get a good recording is just as fun as everything else 🙂 Told my wife I'm gonna set the rig up in the bedroom after she falls asleep to prove that she farts 😅

    Hope to meet you, I'll be taping so I'll be at the bottom of one of the tall poles with the mics on top if you wanna come say hi 🙂 Wishing to pull off the Jersey shows but I'll definitely be in trouble at home if I do that 😈

    Sounds like a cool place, looking forward to seeing you in DC.

    I saw Jeff Mattson and friends last March and this December in CT. Great show, some Jerry stuff, also lots of other stuff and some of Jeff's originals. I have a recording of this December on the archive. Their drummer was recovering from pneumonia, and they played as an electric trio without drums, so my tape doesn't best represent their sound, but there are other recordings on the archive that do. Definitely a nice way to break up the winter and see a killer band.

    Sounds like it's time to tip the scales back to balance and buy tickets 😈😈😈

    We will see, I'd love to get a 69 show, still haven't seen one. I'm looking at 7, too, these, the Cap and the Jubilee. I'm sure it will be fun. We'll have to wait and see, you gonna be at these, Greg?

    That's what I was thinking and hoping for, as well, like what they do in Dewey Beach. The stage looks small for the whole two drummer setup. We will see!!

    I've never been there, but it's a 600 capacity venue with the option of ga standing room or ga tables. Wonder what they're gonna do, can't imagine two nights in a row acoustic, but who knows. They seem to announce the acoustic shows along with their tour date announcements.

    Wondering if the band is going to play electric there this year. I see that they have only ever played acoustic shows there, but this year, they they are playing there two nights in a row, and nothing about them playing acoustic was mentioned in the tour announcement. Got tickets for both nights, hoping electric 🙂
