The Peak of Pennsylvania

Recommended Posts

Just like the Prince of Pistoleers DSO will be moseying into town for their annual pre-Thanksgiving pilgrimage.  By my numbers the band has played the Peak 25 previous times.  Here's a list of the years they've played previously with some electives mixed in.  Anybody looking for a special year or show they're hoping to hear?

1979
1978

I wound't mind a super looong 1973 set.  Maybe a 6/10/1973 ~ RFK.  Or maybe a 12/31/78 ~ Winterland Closing ;)

 

*An interesting one though would be 11/27/70 .  A show from Syndrome - Chicago IL.  I don't know if there are any recordings of it.  The only setlist available was apparently jotted down by an audience member who wasn't exactly sure of the songs order.  If anyone could crack the case it would be DSO.  I'm just gonna be thankful to have the band get to the venue safely (no snow or ice in the forecast I hope i.e. 2014 when the band had to come back a day or two later due to bad weather)  and be there among family and friends.  Can't wait for another smokin' show!
 

There are some vague memories of this show on setlists.net; but most interesting is an entry on dead.net by someone who apparently wrote down the setlist at the time (with some errors) -

Casey Jones
Hard to Handle
China Cat
Brokedown Palace [out of place]
I Know You Rider
Candyman
Trucking
Cryptical Envelopment [= Other One]
Black Peter
Goin Down the Line [BIODTL]
Mona - Not Fade Away [played later on, w/o Mona]
Sugar Magnolia
Smokestack Lightning
Me and Bobby McGee
St Stephen
Good Lovin
Goin Down the Road
Uncle John's Band
Lovelight

I heard there may get be some super high winds in the area, especially on mountain peaks. True story, not trying to be a party pooper. So, if you weigh less than a hundred pounds, you better keep some loose change in your pocket so that you don’t get blown away. Save that for when you’re in the venue. Let the band do that to you!

The weather is often wacky at the Peak.

 

I remember a year watching the snow blow sideways

for a few hours pre-show.  I'll bring my ankle weights

tomorrow just in case.

 

Praise DSO.

Much like X-mas morning, 

I find it hard to stay asleep

on Penn's Peak morning.

 

Safe travels all.

 

Praise DSO.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Deal 9/5/89

      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.
