Countdown to Dancin in the Sand

Recommended Posts

On the first day of countdown,  my true love gave to me a “Birdsong” by a Jamaican palm tree.

I saw Bob Weir on acoustic and Rob Wasserman on stand up bass do Blackbird in their set, opening for Jerry Band in ‘89. 
 I was walking around singing that tune for a month straight after that. Quite an impression.

 I saw their set at Merriweather Post 1989. It was lovely and indeed had staying power. Occasionally “Festival” with that deep rumbling bass pops in my head too!

PG I love that you're already spinning like a top  - lol!  At this rate you'll be a shaft of light by the time the 1st note rings out - just a guess.  A good one.

Just a handful of days left!

 

I have always heard discussion Beatles vs the Stones. How many Stones tunes did the boys and Jerry play?

 

* 5 *. by the GD but only 3 performed.

Empty Heart 1966

Satisfaction about 30 times

The Last Time- about 70 x

 

I'm Free rehearsed with Dylan in 1987 but never performed

"Start Me UP"soundchecked  only1995

 

Let's Spend the Night Together JGB

Moonlight Mile 1976

Wild Horses by Old and In the Way

 

"Get Off My Cloud"  and "Off the Hook" by Warlocks

 

the GD also performed 3 titles regularly that were hits for the Stones n the 60s.

 

The Last Time I heard a couple of times in the 80s/90s and it would send into a tailspin. I just knew it might be....I LOVE "Moonlight Mile".

    • 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.
    • 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
      By: LangeradoSoul · 05/01/2019
      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.
