Always a treat to get an early GD re-creation, and this one was pretty special. My first DSO show, in December of 2008, was at the Shea Auditorium, and they performed an elective set. At the end of the show, Rob Eaton announced the historical significance of the venue, it being the site of New Jersey's first GD show. Last night I finally got to hear DSO re-create that show! Highlights for me were a soulful "It hurts me, too", with spot-on vocals from Rob B., as well as great harmonica by Lisa,  a rocking "Dancing in the Streets", with the tighten-up jam that was often employed in early-70's versions, a powerful and heart warming "Dew" (Jeff was in super-fine voice), and the non-stop jamming in the 2nd set. The "China>Rider" was a perfect blasting off point, and got the audience back into the swing, singing back to the band toward the conclusion. "Dark Star" reached some amazing and strange heights, dropped into a quieter zone, then picked up steam again toward the end. Skip seemed to be having a little difficulty with his amp during the quiet part, with stage techies scrambling to correct the problem, and when they did, Skip gave us a nice little bass jam, which was an unexpected bonus! "Stephen" naturally got the crowd worked up into a frenzy, and brought smiles to most faces, including mine! The harmonies by all gave me goosebumps, and it was a very danceable version. The closing "NFA>GDTRFB" medley was extremely tight, powerful, and a joy to witness! "Easy Wind" seemed a perfect choice for the filler, as it obviously fit with the era of the show, and Ron B. again showed how well he can channel Pigpen. I was pretty sweaty and tired by the end, but in a supremely good way, so the fact that the show was shorter than usual made no difference to me. I was simply happy to finally hear a re-creation of this show, and the band always sends me home happy. Praise DSO, indeed!!!

Like Topher, my first show was also at the Shea Auditorium is December of 2008, where I was also going to school at the time. I can still remember the first notes of Aiko Aiko that night and the feeling it gave me. Happy to see that nearly 11 years later, the band has only gotten better. Last night was superbly played but also a very short show. Show should have started at 7 if the curfew was 11. I'm familiar with the original show on paper but I don't know if there any (good) recordings out there so I was thrilled to hear DSO recreate this one. DITS, Morning Dew, and the whole second set smoked. Love that Tighten Up jam. I remember that being one of the highlights of NYE a few years ago. More of that please. Onto AC.

Incredible show - great sound, great vibe from DSO and the audience.  Loved every minute of it.  I was really thrilled to get an early era show - It Hurts Me Too and Easy Wind were killer.

      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.
