89/02/12  Great Western Forum,  Inglewood, CA

 

Cold Rain, Hell in a Bucket, Row Jimmy, BIODTL>Promised Land,

West LA, How Long Blues*, Gimme Some Lovin'*.

 

Iko**, Monkey and the Engineer**, Alabama**, Dire Wolf**, Cassidy**,

Memphis Blues**>Drumz***>Other 1>Stella>Foolish Heart.

 

E:NFA**, Knockin'**

 

* -with Spencer Davis, ** -with Bob Dylan, *** - with Kodo drummer

 

final/last  How Long Blues 70/08/19 (1236)

final/last  Monkey and the Engineer   81/10/16  (495)

 

The final show of the 89 west coast winter shows, and

one of the more unusual setlists.  As far as I know, all

the guests appearances were unannounced, adding to

the freak factor.  Spencer Davis killed the GSL, and the

pre drums with Dylan provided several highlights.  Dylan

doing the Dead after the Dead doing Dylan in 87, The

Bus floated back to SF after this one.

 

Praise DSO.

Article on Dark Star in NY Times https://nyti.ms/2NxXaR4?smid=nytcore-ios-share

Good read - thanks for the link.

 

There are 69 comments thus far, 68 of which are quite positive.  Then there's this moron: "The only thing more mind-numbing than listening to the Grateful Dead is listening to someone trying to convince you that they were great. Today I’m embarrassed to be a Times reader."

 

I did get a kick out of this comment, in reaction to the scathing Lou Reed quote in the article: "Lou Reed was a legend in his own mind. When you look at the history of rock-and-roll, is he really much more than maybe a 3-hit wonder?"  Ha!

3-5-81 was at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh.  Check out the jam to open set 2 for something very unique, as it occurs while Jerry’s guitar is being repaired.

 

This is a cool audience recording.  It’s funny to me that I was once a bit of a soundboard snob, but now in my *more experienced* years I get especially excited about a quality, unique audience recording.  

 

Enjoy!

I was indeed - can't believe it was 29 years ago.  Just a magical night for so many reasons - some of which had nothing to really do with the show.

Hey > 12/13/90 was no slouch either!

69/12/19  Fillmore Auditorium,  San Francisco, CA

 

Acoustic:  Monkey and the Engineer, Sadie, 

Long Black Limousine>All Around This World.

 

Electric:  Mason's Children>China>Rider, Black Pete,

Hard to Handle, Cumberland, Casey Jones, Good Love>

Cryptical>Drums>Other One>Cryptical>

Uncle John's Band>Lovelight.

 

acoustic is without Phil.

China>Rider not on Relisten, but in DBX.

 

Phil's tardiness prompts an acoustic set with Jerry and Bob.

Believed to be first acoustic performance in band history.

Jerry to crowd   "When he gets here, we'll be able to play

loud and all that.  So me and Bobby Ace here are gonna

regail ya with some old favorites.

 

The Mason's Children was a monster and Pig killed the GL.

 

Praise DSO.

They did the same thing a week later, 12/26/69, in Dallas. My favorite show. Supposedly, the drummer was late, Not on the acoustic set. I read somewhere about the honesty of ‘ someone is late so, let’s play acoustic’. Some say it was a stunt of sorts so that the could dabble in acoustic. I’m glad they did. I love acoustic Grateful Dead, 1970 and 1980. Jerry’s style really comes through on acoustic.  Listen to Jerry’s solo on ‘to lay me down’ off of Reckoning. Such gentle picking.

    • 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.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: LangeradoSoul · 05/01/2019
      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.
