Two days later still trying process what exactly transpired on a magical Friday night at Hampton Beach. A book could be written about this show I think. The band’s energy and focus was clearly evident from the first note of the first set. The second set is where something truly special happened. I’m one of those always pining for a recreation, as for me those shows have been a step above, and in several cases truly epic. After this show I must admit my perspective on DSO is forever changed. Friday night DSO managed to bring us a stunning display of musicianship, creativity and spirit, weaving together songs and sounds from all eras in a way that came together beautifully. The second set especially was one amazing song after another. And not just played. I haven’t thought of a better phrase than that DSO killed it every song, taking us places within and between songs I’ve never been. At times mind bending, and I didn’t even have a beer. DSO took the Dead repertoire and made it their own. There was an energy and interpretation unique to DSO, yet still faithful to the creators. Which is one reason I’m still processing, how is this possible? And how can we be so lucky to hear this music live, and that the band members have decided to share this wonderful art that moves us in a way nothing else can? I wonder if the band would like to comment on this show. For me this is a “Cornell” moment, where I will look back and say I was there, at that show, when DSO built a musical palace for us to live in for a few hours (Skip’s bass is still rumbling through my bones). Thank you DSO musicians and crew!!

This show was so spectacular, I placed it right next to the Sat. night Jubilee show in my top shows. HUGE! I kept joking with Ellie "you sure they're playing tomorrow?" Head is still spinning......Loved Shining Star, one truely beautiful love song that was sung so emotionally, and yeah I have no words for 2nd set except MAGNIFICENT

Loose Lucy and Blackthroated both shelved for a long time after being played back to back on 10/19/74.  This show looked likes a monster.  Haven't been to Hampton Beach in many years but I've certainly had good times at the Casino there.

It's like Jeff said -

 

We're gunna break new ground here - go where no one has gone before, and melt (and re-weld) together :

 

Unboken Chain > China Cat Sunflower > I know You Rider > drums > space > Dark Star > The Eleven > Dark Star > Terrapin Station > > At A Siding > Terrapin Flyer > Terrapin Refrain > Not Fade Away

 

and do the Terrapin parts with studio like perfection

 

When Jeff went into the return to DS the band all turned him, looked with smiles, and too enjoyed what was happening ...

 

This band brings it all home with authentic soulful sounds, top of the line playing skills, & original innovation addresssing what Could Be Done with the song library.  { More of this to come I'm sure }

 

Thank You - For A Real Good Time

No. It will be the penultimate download

Funny about this show. When we sat down to construct it I was half kidding with Jeff that I wanted to do something way cool. An epic sandwich. I walked away and this is what Eaton and Jeff came up with:-)

I think all of us knew from early in the first set it would be special. The conversations were flowing and the sound impeccable thanks to Cotter and Will, the sound system and the room

Early on we could see the band regularly conversing between songs about what we're about to hear (and feel !!!) and more conversing with the instruments for sure ...

grate selection ... both sets

 

YES !  Way Cool - so agree

and a Totally Epic Sandwich for sure - and some Airplane for dessert !

 

Deader & Better Every Day

I've seen many DSO shows over the years but this one is my favorite.  At Shining Star it became blatant to everyone that this was an original setlist, but what happened in the second set really changed the game.  Definitely a journey of pleasure and delight.  No downtime...it was all *on*.

Thank you for sharing a little of the inside story of this amazing show! The sound really was fantastic. Looking forward to a Fall tour return to the Boston area.

 

Very happy I will be able to download this show. Maybe another path will emerge in the future, at least for the extra special shows? Previous recordings remain active on my playlist, and I play them for other people. Understand the logistical challenges.
