After Brown Eyed , I said to the women next to me “that was great!”..her reply ... “no, that was FUCKING great” 

and it really was! 

Penns peak is a great venue with a great pre show outdoor scene and zero hassle . The wood floors and beamed ceiling treat my knees and the sound perfectly.  Been to a lot of shows in many places in 3 years. It’s a must go show 

 

just another great DSO experience with people dancing , living and singing

 

thank you band and crew! 

 

I guess i’m in for Ohio drive and tenting

so, I researched the original show out of my usual curiosity. The original didn’t have an encore that night. The ripple encore is actually the filler, I guess. I wasn’t there, last night or the original show.

Hey Greg,

Quite possible they added it as we (the show) back in November was cut short to some fan drama.

Another Flawless Victory for DSO at the Peak!  The joint was jumpin from the first note of Mississippi Half Step and the band kept up the energy all night.  The near sellout crowd (place was packed) was especially engaged.   Highlights for me was a Franklin's Tower sans Help>Slip, don't get that very often.  The Shakedown (2nd set opener) was a tasty precursor to a groovy charging second set.  I thought the drums>space was really good.  Straight to the point, I usually take a bathroom break during space but no need this show, was full of energy.  Black Peter out of Drums was a surprise then rippers of I need a Miracle>Bertha>Good Lovin' had everyone dancing.  Then they rocked us back down to earth with a smooth Ripple to send the crowd home satisfied.  Was fun to meet some new people and glad to see there were no shenanigans like that last show there.  Grate job by the band, crew, & crowd.  Can't wait until the next installment.

With the organ on stage and Lisa i assumed from the get-go that it was an elective.

 

I've been Peaking since 05 and just last visit discovered the balcony. Don't wanna talk about it too much, give others ideas...but it is the killer dance zone.

 

Did anyone else think that the shakedown was crazy good? Wowzers

This final statement led me to some research...111 help on the ways and 223 franklins....so not rare at all, more common in fact.

Dino sure picked a winner with that one, he's doing a great job with the lists. Always love hearing Ship Of Fools, one of the most underrated, underplayed songs in the repertoire. Moved upstairs with Mango for the 2nd set. A lot more room, and really didn't give up anything sound wise.  Thought of HB during the Peter, wish he could have been there. The 3 hour ride home was treacherous in that monsoon. High energy show from start to finish. A+.

Interesting, this recreation is listed as a pre-announce for Hampton Beach later this summer, perhaps an error? Is there still a special recreation in store for Hampton?

Left or right from the stage? Left for me and I was loving everyone around me. Maybe one was you :)

We were stage right, audience left.

 

This show is still the best of the three that I've seen this run but i have a feeling that something from Jubilee will take it's place.

One guy was such a great dancer I had to give him a hug after the show. You?

I don't know! There were hugs given. I'm tallish and skinny with darkish longish hair. It was epic up there

Everyone is a great and different dancer which creates the magic. Everyone expresses themselves differently which really represents the dead music itself. The improvisational jazz dancing with its ebb and flow has a chaotic beauty with its own pulse and once in a while you achieve group nirvana and split the atom.

    • 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.

      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.

    • 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.
