Jeff Mattson to play Alligator and Jerry's D-28 at Warfield

Recommended Posts

Just saw on DSO's Instagram page that Jeff will be playing Jerry's Alligator Strat at the Warfield on 2/15, the first time this guitar will be played on stage since 8/1/73, what an honor. On 2/14, he will also be playing Jerry's Martin D-28 during a recreation of 2/14/70, the same guitar Jerry played on the acoustic portion of the show. Pretty cool, nerdy, stuff right there. Vintage holy grail instruments 🤤🤤

Did you notice that the last time the alligator was played was on Jerry’s birthday? All kinds of energy around that show. Bill Graham bought the Warfield so that the Grateful Dead could play there for two weeks straight doing their fifteenth anniversary acoustic  shows in 1980.

Have you ever seen DSO recreate any of the Warfield run?   If you did, I think you might just jump outta your skin.   Maybe they could warn you first :)

No, I didn’t, but I did see that they recreated the one radio city show that I caught. I’m sorry that I missed that. That makes the odds of me seeing it slim to none and Slim just left town. I’m really looking forward to the Hamilton acoustic shows. I’m expecting a bit of a warm and fuzzy flashback.

Since we are on topic, one of my favorite DSO shows of all time...  The Weir sit in was nuts.

      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.
