With A Little Help From My Friends (w/ several guest singers)


Jeff on everything.  Lisa on 3/4 of it all.  GREAT night.  Some transitions to/from the jams within songs were a little iffy, but the raw power of it all more than made up for it.  Lots of spirited play.  The whole acoustic set was sublime, especially Rosalie and To Lay Me Down.  Beautiful harmony between Lisa and Jill.  Crazy surprise between China and Rider.  Awesome Shakedown, and whatever that Etta James song was was just KILLED by Jill.  Might have been my favorite tune of the night.  Anyone know the Jeff original?  It kinda reminded me of a Trey Anastasio composition, which is not a criticism lol just an observation :)  theCause's original was a catchy tune as well.  15 "anymore's" to end the Bertha.  White Rabbit.  I've heard it a few times now, but I think this was THE one.  Brought.  The.  House.  Down.  The people near me not familiar with Lisa were blown away.  I was like, she's always like this! LOL  No, the Rabbit was a really REALLY good Rabbit.  Help From My Friends was played and even sung in that Joe Cocker at Woodstock-ish way, and was the perfect end to a great night.  See you all there next year!!!!

Major props to you tallying and reporting on the number of “Anymore”s in Bertha, Days.



I’m not sure I could have counted to three that late in that night.  Impressive and appreciated report.

Hehheh, thanks.  As one who tried to memorize Deadbase back in the day, I saw that they'd list the Anymores in the Tape Timings section, and so I tend to count em at the end of every Bertha.  Just one of those things that I always do at shows :)  I also hold up my beverage at "Inspiration" in Terrapin, pound my chest at "some are mathematicians" in Tangled Up (I teach the stuff), and giggle like a schoolgirl whenever a singer blows a line because I can't help it; I just find that damn funny and enjoyable.  Shows the boys are for real, and what's going down on stage, is for real. Funny thing I JUST realized though.... I don't think I've EVER seen Lisa mess up a line.  EVER.


Guess the Women (truly) Are Smarter.  Ha!

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      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.

      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.
