I wasn’t hyped about the set list (which is what happens when I know beforehand), but I should have known a set list means nothing when the band plays. They played awesome and I got lost in the notes, which is what I always want. Great time!

I can relate, for me it's both lost and found simultaneously, a wonderful yin yang feeling

I had not looked at this setlist since it was announced they were doing it, so by show time I didn't know what was coming. I know 79 and had some good ideas, but I don't like knowing what's coming. 6 songs in when we FINALLY got a light breather for LLR is when I realize it's pretty friggin hot, about 168% humidity, I'm soaked, and this is awesome!!! The crowd was thick, maybe a bit more than previous years, but not substantially more than non-pisgah jubilee years by my measure. We arrived for most of the California Kind set and the crowd was pretty thin, so maybe the heat kept folks inside until DSO (it did for us day 2). Love the deal first set closer cause you feel like you just stepped off a roller coaster for set break, good feeling. 2nd set from Terrapin on was a pretty intense dance scene. If you were in it, you got swept up in it. Even when people were cutting through to get out of the crowd, the only way they could penetrate the group was to dance.. haha. Like it or not, you gotta dance to get through! Blooze, Cats and Rabbit really tapped any remaining cells of energy as all three smoked, and Lisa owns Rabbit. Super fun show with a pretty typical 79 list, lacking somewhat in special songs but totally made up for with spectacular execution by the band and crew. Having a big forum dance party didn't hurt either.. well wait a minute, come to think of it I was hurting the next morning.

It was a Row Jimmy all the way to Black Mountain leading up to this day, even the day of there was a medical emergency that had potential to tear this old building down. Prior to that-  NOLA had left a big mark on our household,; I’m thinking I should’ve drank more alcohol than water 🤣 (Sazerac here and there vs finishing off the evening at the Abbey)  ( I drank a lot of tap) because they treat their water so differently. We felt bad for days.


oh the Black Peter slide guitar was divine! And the Terrapin/ Playing was a joy ride! This is the day I happened upon Kelly and she had willed me front. We were going to leave to our crowd but damn! The sound was soooooo good during Cats, I couldn’t miss the great Great Society song! 


Gonna feed my head with beautiful thoughts.... 💗.... of all the smiling faces.

      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.
