From my vantage point- eighth row Jerry's side

The 10/26/89 Dark Star was the best Star I ever saw,

the boys made a point to end the tour with an epic version.

The timing (26:46) was the longest post break out stand

alone Star,  a mindblower for sure.

 

I tangled with a semi on the way down 95 in

Jacksonville and the Bus limped into Miami.

This Star made everything right with the

world again.

Show 738  State Theater, Falls Church, VA

11/1/02

recreating 11/1/85 Richmond, VA

 

The boys slayed this show in the original

and DSO did the performance more than

justice in the retelling.

 

Second set list off the hook, I remember

the place an absolute asylum during the Gloria.

 

One of many fantastic shows at State Theater

before relegation to 9:30 Club

Thumbing through DeadBase

11/8 a thin date, did come across this:

 

11/08/85  Community War Memorial,  Rochester, NY

 

Iko, Rooster>Peggy-o, Esau,BE Women, Baby What You Want>Jackstraw>Might As Well.

Revolution, Estimated>Eyes>Drumz>Other One>Miracle>She Belongs To Me>Sugar Mags.

E: Satisfaction

 

To be chasing songs low on the frequency charts, this performance checks a lot of boxes.

Satisfaction (31) total plays, Revolution (11), She Belongs (10), Baby What You Want (5).

Brent did the Jimmy Reed cover 4 times and the fifth play was with Jorma on vocals

09/07/69 in Family Dog at the Great Highway.  1985 did produce some interesting setlists.

Don't listen to the Sennheiser shotguns of 12-12-90!  An FOB Schoeps spaced omni recording has been seeded to eTree recently.  Phenomenal sound.

I had a session with the Schoeps 12-12-90 tonight.  Dark Star>Terrapin, lights out concert level.  Complete immersion. Really intense stuff. When Jerry drops into Dark Star from Iko it's game on.

the 2nd nite of the legendary 1990 McNichols run was no slouch despite the bomb from the nite before:

 

http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1990/12/13-3/tuning

 

Good Jack Straw to kick it off and a beautiful Ramble On (check out the soaring MIDI).  

Great H>S>F a turbo Eyes, Other One > Dew with a rare Box closer.  Of all these gems - check out the Saint of Circumstance.  We still miss The Sailor but this thing absolutely cooks.

Give it a spin ⚡️

Always felt Jerry playing

with the 'MIDI toy' represented

a more engaged Jerry, exploring

different tones in songs he could

play in his sleep.

(Use the Charlie Miller SBD)
 

12/14/90 - Everyone thought this was the weakest of the 3 nite run.  Setlist suggested it and there are a couple valleys but this was still solid gold.  Everything is speeded up - and I don't mean the source  

 

TLMD - compare this to MSG 1990

Let It Grow - fast fingers and bombs

Foolish Heart - Sick Midi

He’s Gone - It's almost too fast - lol!  Check out the post-jam - Unbelievable!

http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1990/12/14/hes-gone 

 

Women-R-Smarter -  There’s only one - it’s that good.  

http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1990/12/14/man-smart-woman-smarter

 

This 3-show run was the best post-Brent I would ever see.  It just all came together after a pretty tough stretch.  My brother + I still wish each other happy 12/12, 12/13 + 12/14 every year.  27 and counting...

I want someone to have a listen to the TLMD here and the lauded MSG version and see how it stacks up http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1990/9/18-9/to-lay-me-down

 

The solo inside of Knockin (yes, knockin) is pretty damn awesome.

http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1990/12/14/knockin-on-heavens-door

 

Somebody give this shit a listen and see if I'm going gaga or it's just another show.  12/14 was even panned by some - no bleeping way.

Are you asking about the relative merits of Joe Noel's matrix source?  It's a perfectly fine listen, but Tom Darian's B&K recording is the stuff of legend.  A rare tape where I think mixing in the soundboard can only hurt it.  In fact, Tom's recordings of the entire run are jaw dropping.  The union security guy tending to that FOB section at The Garden was a Head, and he was getting greased with cassette dubes of each night the subsequent evening.  In return, not only did Tom have carte blance to put his stand nice and high on the aisle seat (the center line was the aisle), but the usher was actually making folks near the mics pipe down.  Amazing, and to my knowledge unprecedented.

 

So the bottom line is these B&K audience tapes (or somewhat interchangeably Rick Katzeff's Schoeps tapes which were made at the same seat) should be the go to for this run.
