11-20 and 21 73' were midweek shows in Denver, could you imagine going to those shows and trying to work the next day?

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

Listened to 12-1-66 on Grateful Dead channel on the way to work this morning. There is something about the raw tone of Jerry's guitar on these early recordings that send shivers down the spine.

6/24/85 rained hard during set break, clearing out my mom, sister and brother-in-law from the lawn (I had got a third row pavilion), so they got the first set in and got to experience all the colors and dancing of a show. That second set..... during smokestack.... the sky had turned an amazing, after rainstorm, night coming on, GOLD, it was shining, then the He's Gone "nothings going to bring him back, echoed as the storm clouds pushed away, nothing was going to bring them back, then a comes and a cryptical and a rat following drums justified Jerry wearing that blue blazer he had on that night. Nothing's ever been the same since that magical night. The recordings still hold true up to today. Thanks for bringing it up. I've got a four day weekend that might land me right in the middle of 6/24 without a chance of sleep for at least 8 hours  ;)

Kingfish April 3rd 1976 Beacon NYC. Mystery Train>Mule Skinner opener, Battle Of New Orleans, Goodbye Your Honor(they say that judge he got a reefer grudge, bound to give you 20 years!), Big Iron, And that's the 1st set! C.C. Rider, Promised Land, Lazy Lightning>Supplication, Jump For Joy, Asia Minor, Minglewood, a lot of fun stuff in this show! This lead guitar player Robbie Hoddinott really smokes! This is the King Biscuit Flower Hour release, Im sure a lot of you may be familiar with it.

RIP, oh, what a lucky man (and all of us people) he was..

April 6th, 1984 set two, sublime space>eyes>Peter>Truckin>Black Peter>sugar. These are some of the slickest segues I've heard in awhile. Do yourself a favor, there's a smokestack in there that Jerry don't go for

Fast-fingers on everything! It's got some flubs and some sloppy (read: GD) but this show smokes! There are some fast Eyes but this one is turbo-charged. Casey x2

That whole 2nd set is fantastic! Post space is truly excellent - huge Blk Pete themes! Sugar Mags is transitioned s bit rough and then Jerry kicks it into gear and they all fall in line.

Really a wonderful show - Thanks AC!

listened to both 04-06-84 and 11-4-77. Thanks for sharing !

 

The Eyes in 77 blasts off to an amazing fierceness and into that Estimated is delicious. 

 

I bet the 84 crowd was wondering just what was about to happen at the end of Black Peter. Fastest Sugar Mag I have heard - simplistic and yet ripping.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      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.

      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.
    • Deal 9/5/89

      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.

    • 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.
