Maybe it's not fair to call Fall Tour '76 under the radar, but maybe it's kinda/sorta under the radar?

 

In any event, that last week of Sept/first week of October is some stunning stuff.

10/2/77, great show all around. Bust out of Casey Jones, super high energy peak to set the stage. Solid first set, killer second set. Phil teases The Other One kickoff a few times and finally atomizes the house with a huge sonic blast. His teases remind me of, if you've ever watched a zoom video of the fractal Mandelbrot set (my profile picture) when you occasionally catch a glimpse of the bulb (the black part) amidst all the color. Then when he finally lays it out, it's like finally seeing the bulb zoomed in in all its glory. Or maybe the teases like seeing Kilroy peeping over the wall. Lol. My thoughts listening to The Other One 🤓🤓

One of my favorites!  Killer Let It Grow and Dupree’s bustout in addition to the Casey.

 

That 2nd set is on Fire 🔥

We skipped 10/4 last year when we were lighting this candle...

 

How’s about 10/4/80?

 

If you like Reckoning and Dead Set, you’re in bidness here.  And if you’re reading this, you like Reckoning and Dead Set.  May want to pack a lunch for this one.

So, one week after my first Grateful Dead concert, I go back to college for my second year. My shroom mate has a friend who went to college in San Fran just so he could go to Dead shows. He calls my roommate to say Bill Graham bought the Warfield theatre so that the Dead could play there for two weeks straight. They’re playing acoustic sets, plus two electric sets to celebrate their fifteenth anniversary. With a few more phone calls over that time, we learn that every acoustic set is being closed with Ripple, and that they’re making a double acoustic and a double electric album from those shows. They asked everyone to not do too much hootin’ and hollerin’, as the shows were being recorded for the albums. We also learned that they were doing similar shows at Radio City. That got us cutting class and riding up to Radio City the Monday before Halloween. We ride into New York with his Buddy and try to scalp tickets. We get robbed by ‘scalpers’, and now we’re penniless outside of Radio City while our ride is inside the show. Pretty disappointed for about an hour when someone walks up to us wearing a ski mask and asks, ‘who wants to get snuck in?’ We tell him our hard luck story, and he says, ‘ stand right here, let me find three more people’. We end up walking right through the front doors of Radio City without a ticket. This guys neighbor was a ticket taker at the door. Once inside, we got free doses, red dragons two weeks old from Berkeley. Absolutely amazing night. Acoustic set was precious. Five and a half hour show. Life changing. That’s all, thanks for letting me share.

Oh, one more thing that we learned about those acoustic shows. That was the first time in ten years and they said they would never play acoustic again. Time proved that to be true outside of a couple of shows. 82?

How about turning your mind into a soupy liquid by dialing up 10-12-68!! What a gem. Really, really high qual. Recording on archive. Opens with an absolutely fucking blazing darkstar>Stephen>tell>eleven>death don't. Bobby calls the darkstar opener a "foxtrot", Lol. This will be a good to for you if you like the old stuff.
