Ready or Not

A rare release I will sit out.  Although at least they got the Days Between right.  12-11-94 Oakland is without question the definitive version.  This makes me want to revisit the '92 Star Lake So Many Roads.

 

I wonder what happened to Shoe Fits, Childhood's End, and Wave to the Wind?  :rofl:

Hahaha at “test the limits”, Bill.

 

Indeed.

 

I shall sample, as this appears to be coming out on Apple Music, to which I am a subscriber.  

 

I was at the Eternity (Memphis), and remember it having some great music, but the lyrics just were uncool to me, so I could never get with this tune.  Plus, not much to dance to with it, either.

 

I was also at the W2GH (Deer Creek), which was a SMOKING show.

The album is a neat idea, and I’m sure that it sounds fantastic.  All of the songs included have grown on me over time, except for one, which continues to offend as much as it did when offered up live back then.

 

Maybe it’s because I never elect to listen to it when I (now) have a choice?

Samba much?  Sizzling garbage, IMO.  Way to Go Home had some spots for Jerry to shine - which was way too infrequent in 1992.

 

That 12/11/94 Days Between is indeed the goods - 12/19/94 is right there too.

Tea,

 

Due to your disrespectful "sizzling garbage" remark, in relation to a Grateful Dead song of all things, you need to make amends by ranking these songs in order of preference.  The penance being that it will make you contemplate the material.  Rate 'em 1 thru 4.

 

Samba

Shoe Fits

Childhood's End

Wave To The Wind

I know the shade cast on GD's last material is low-hanging fruit but it is what it is.  MAYBE if the band had more time to lets these songs steep a little, they could've been a bit better.  Here's a sample ranking: 

 

Samba

Shoe Fits

Childhood's End

Wave To The Wind

 

There - I did it.

 

Of those songs, Wave to the Wind and Shoe Fits have lyrics that spark a little intrigue.

I actually danced hard for Samba.

Like loving an ugly dog from the pound.

Someone has to do it.

 

Praise DSO.

Perhaps, but that's completely off-set by having to listen to Phil sing them.

It's clear that BillK522 is fully-actualized.  Not sure if I'll ever get there - I need a little help from my friends.

See, my problem (one of my problems) back then was I smoked tobacco, so some songs would come along and be smoke breaks.

 

Broken Arrow, I’m looking at you.

    • 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.

      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.
