7-7-86: Weir Introduces the band

Recommended Posts

This is a fun little snippet of Grateful Dead history, and extremely unique (unprecedented?) for latter era Dead.

 

Toward the end of Satisfaction, Bobby introduces the band, culminating with "then of course over here we got ol' Jer."  But Garcia fittingly gets the last word: "One of my favorite people in the whole wide world, Mr. Bob Weir."

 

Check it out if you're unfamiliar.  Starting a little bit before the 5 min mark of Satisfaction.

Jerry really does charge in there after Bobby's platitude :headbang:

 

Not sure I can recall any other mid-song intros - closest is GAMH 1975 and even that one was during the warm-up

and then that was that, no Ventura, thought he might show up with the Mystery Band at Pyramid Lake Nevada in Sept, but no, not until The Stone in October. It was all Kimock and Kingfish w/ Bobby and some Hunter shows (Rock Columbia tours) to get us through. There were a few Mydland and Kreutzman shows (Go Ahead was the bands name, I think)

RFK 86 was laden with undercovers (mushroom window van) and police raids before and after the unbelievably hot shows. Energy level is off the hook with the introductions

I was near the stage for this show......remember it well. As I recall Jerry fell into a diabetic coma days later, correct?

Lasting impressions from this show....

It was hot as hell.

Lost my friends at half time, just as darkness was descending. Through my lysergic lens, without enough light, panic set in as I realized I had no car and I was visiting DC at the time. Fortunately I got my shit together enough to get to the front of the stage and enjoy the second set. Shortly after the lights came up, I turned around and there were my friends.....magic.

Terrapin was botched, Wharf Rat strong, intro to Round & Round jarring......and of course the band intro......Jerry took care of Bobby pretty good......I laughed like hell at that one.

Great memories....

Brent and Bill’s band was called Dead Ahead. I saw them in Newark, De., at the Stone Balloon. They played with two guys from Santana, if I am not mistaken, plus some other guy from the Bay Area. They would play a Dead tune, then a Santana tune, Dead tune, Santana tune. They rocked the place. It was an incredible night. We were sitting on the bar, ten feet in front of Brent. smoking bowls. Blatantly. In public. 1986. Security? What security?

I was at this show and remember the introductions. This was the petty Dylan shows right. 136 degrees in rfk, national weed crisis, people selling bong resin, and yes Jerry went into the coma afterwards.

      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.
