Giants Stadium Box Set

Recommended Posts

Christmas in September.

All warm and fuzzy opening my box set.

They do a great job packaging these things.

Thumbed through the book, scanned the lists.

Dead said it would drop on 9/20, ups driver

was at the door at 4.

Looking forward to the library burn in.


Praise DSO.

It would be easy to sleep on this release given the era involved, but that would be a big mistake.  The sound here is absolutely glorious, and the playing quite solid.  Although I don't think the '91 shows sound any better than the others, these were the only live Dead shows to be mastered in 48 tracks.  Nice little footnote.


I cued up the Black Peter from '91 upon Hunter's passing and was thoroughly haunted by it. There's a little jam at the end, led by Phil, before they go into Throwing Stones, that was one of those true Dead moments where it seemed they were giving it some extra effort because Black Peter had suddenly become somewhat autobiographical and The Boys were playing for Robert.  Funny how The Dead can hit you like that again, and again, and again....

6/16/91 has been the big surprise for me.

Only negative is that the pre drums do not have any of the usual big jam songs.  An Estimated after the Rider would have been perfect.

Agreed about the Black Peter - spring/summer 1991 had incredible versions - Shoreline and Vegas being standouts.

‘91 was pretty damn awesome.  The Fall was outstanding IMO.  So much fun ❤️  This Black Pete haunts 




The  Sugar Mag that followed was the best of the year of great Sugar Mags.  Best I ever saw!  Here’s the AUD of it.  




I would strongly encourage everyone to give both a spin....

    • 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.

      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.
