Wonderful venue.  Show was short on talkers and long on music!  Far from Me followed by Easu got me thinking Indy '84, but thought was not confirmed for me until Day Job encore.  Attended original.  On to Indy for recreation of another show where i was at original.  Don't know that I've ever had such a two-fer.

Just listened to Saratoga 84 yesterday...6-24 maybe? Great sounding recording and band felt patient. Slinky. Brent's gs-1 sounds so amazing- have been very into 83-86 for this reason. It's all about Brent, baby!

More space than I’ve had a a Dso show in years.  Wide open. Flat massive dance floor. We were up front with a 15x20 area for 10 of us. No one crowded in. It was marvelous. If you wanted to go by the soundboard you could have a 30x30 area solo during set 2. What a great time. The whole crowd got down because we had tons of space. What’s good for the fans isn’t always good for the band, but once in a while 400 peeps in a big room is a dream come true. I realized the more space you get the more spoiled you get. When someone would move into my massive space I’d end up moving back. Normally I’d be like join this huge area but it got to where I wanted to dance all alone lol. It was super fun and the sound was great. Dso rules the 80s. I think they are best when they play 80s style. I don’t even think it’s close to any other era playing wise. Maybe considering they saw more Brent shows than any other keyboardist may play a factor. Or maybe I’ve been on this 80s kick lately and really adore the 83-84 shows. I think the dead was on top of their game then.

Funny how our experiences guide our perceptions.  I saw way more Keith shows than anything. Keith ruled. For me our wheelhouse is the Keith era. But that’s what makes the ball bounce, no? I will say playing the GS-1 is the shit, though;-)

I ain’t often right but I’ve never been wrong. 

 

Maybe since I like the 80s shows Dso more than other eras sans the rare 69, it clouded my perception. 

 

But gimme that variety!!! 

 

Anorher subjective comment is approaching....the Midwest is the best area to see Dso shows ;)  The crowd I think fully releases more than other areas of the country. Only really the west could argue that but I think it’s a more controlled, possibly more elegant of a dance vs a full on boogie. Then add in the space from past 2 nights and the crowd is left panting.

Since I got on bus in 77 that’s what I like the most from DSO...Just like Rob I saw many Keith and Donna shows.

I think Eaton was taping shows in grade school. He wasn’t tall enough to ride the coaster but had his taper equipment set up 😂

    • 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.
