I want to hear this

Recommended Posts

On piano we have Mr. Rob Barraco. On drums on stage left, Mr. Rob Koritz. On bass and vocals, Mr. Skip Vangelas. (Thubump, thump, thump, tss, thubabump...) On rhythm guitar and vocals, Mr. Rob Eaton. On the drums on stage right, Mr. Dino English. On vocals, Mrs. Lisa Mackey. On lead guitar and vocals, Mr. Jeff Mattson. Will you welcome please, Dark Star Orchestra. Da-da, da-da... 

 

One of the best recorded moments, in my opinion. You know the band could pull it off. Who could pull off the intro, though?

I have a disc of that recording taken off of a bootleg album known as Imaginary Ballroom(?) my bootleg was called something else. Can’t remember, it’s gone. So is the album.

"Make Believe Ballroom" I think it was called.  Classic stuff.

Yep,  8/13/75 at the Great American Music Hall, One From the Vault. This was one if the first Grateful Dead CDs I owned. Probably my favorite HSF, maybe because it was one of the first shows I really listened to constantly, you know how your most listened to versions become your standard.

Thats a fantastic show. That had marbles on it too. I’d have to say that’s my fav HSF. I played that mother out!!!

I agree that the intro would be tough to pull off. No one could match Bill Graham's perfect delivery, cadence and inflections. You can hear the good humor oozing from the recording as he introduces, "on bass and vocals, Mr. Philip Lesh" and Phil's response, equally good humored, just laying the shit down out of the thumping bass. I think the intro got the band all juiced up to deliver one of the finest HSFs ever, and a killer show to follow. I still think the band could ham it up and have fun with the intro, if they had the right announcer to do it.

Baracco told me Phil had him rehearse the thriller for a Halloween Phil and Friends gig. They didn’t play it at the show but I’m pretty sure Phil was doing the spoken intro to the thriller at the rehearsal.

Also an all-time favorite, probably because we played that CD over and over in 91/92.

I think Bill Walton would do a nice job doing the intro for DSO.

    • 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.

      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.

      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.
