Now Listening...

11-2-85 Dew

Doc's comment made me think back to when the sign at the start of this thread came about at Flashback Fest at the Ledges, I think in 06'. Hard to believe that was 10 years ago. I was so much older then...

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.

Jimi Hendrix,  July 4th 1970,  at the Atlanta Pop Festival (the Byron Festival as we called it).  The dvd “Electric Church” arrived yesterday. It has Jimi’s performance that night and a lot of interesting history from Georgia in the late sixties.  One quick scene has my old van, "Marrakesh Express", and our campsite in the pecan grove.  I wish I could see my friend Len. who said he was filmed hawking his bags of herb like a beer vendor at a baseball game. Most of my memory of that week is fogged by the Purple Haze sent to us from the Bear on the west coast but I do remember laying flat on my back watching the fireworks go off in the sky while Jimi was playing The Star Spangled Banner.

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.

Umm aren't you only like 5 years removed from college?  I hope you wouldn't think you have finished everything in your life in your mid 20's.

7-7-87 Roanoke, VA. A show I'm proud to say I attended, cause it is fucking good. Duprees, big river, let it grow, scarlet, fire, estimated. All killer late 80s versions I got to share with maybe 3-5k. Car broke down hard on the interstate on the way there, and I left it to make the shows. Totally blown trans. Sold it to the gas station for $50. Handed it to my buddy for gas money to drive me back there from college. Ahhhhh, those were the days.

I believe we caught a Comes A Time in Roanoke for that 8/7 & 8/8 '87 series. Wasn't going to miss that pair on the tour that summer. The Wonderland show on 6/30/87 bears an incredible scarlet/fire ( whole show is packed with crossing the border tunes. I lost a transmission going to see Jerry in Reno February 21, 1987, so I can appreciate the "all in" that was happening then. I mean , it was Jerry's come back year, a year earlier we were lamenting his coma status and he laid out a whole lotta music ,in 1987, brought in the Black Mountain Boys, but those Roanoke shows were tops, high energy going indoors during the summer. You're right, it was a smaller 5-8000 seater (closer to the band for everyone)

My cat Mia goes to the speaker focal point and lays down facing the speakers when I put Dead on.  I think she has heard so much since she was a kitten that it relaxes her even at high volumes.  My stray who Ive had 1 year, Stella, will bolt from the room and go into hiding when I jam Dead.  She's not a fan.

You Are What You Is, FZ

Fyi, FZ's son Dweezil is doing a great job carrying on his fathers legacy. His Zappa Plays Zappa tours are top notch and he plays with a group of great musicians, and Dweezil himself can certainly handle his fathers licks. Had the pleasure of seeing them in Cleveland a couple years ago, real fun show. Now Dweezils doing a tour called "Dweezil Zappa plays whatever the hell he wants." If you get the opportunity and have the time, treat yourself to a great show.

Just saw Ike Willis with din Preston and project object.. there's a great 1978 show and others on YouTube. When Zappa played Cleveland in November of 1984 he played at "the front row" in the round. Those 84 shows were really good. "Does Humor Belong In Music" video, has some songs from the pier in NYC. Besides all that ....you just got drafted, (when life and live have left you shafted)

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun
      By: gr8fulpair · 06/23/2019
      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: Ammagamalin Crew · 05/01/2019
      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
