If I am not mistaken, eyes into estimated is a one out of a hundred thing compared  to estimated into eyes, as far as Jerry and the boys (and girl) are concerned. I think that needs to be noted because it is a really big deal. 
 
  I think the second set opening string of tunes is a one in a million. DSO electives can be mind blowing. Bet it was fun.

I met a guy last night who saw a lot of shows in the late 80s/early 90s and heard them open with Eyes->Estimated tons of times, but had never heard them play that "obscure Dylan song." He refused to believe me when I said this wasn't a GD setlist.

"Obscure Dylan Song"?   Memphis Blues?  If he caught a lot of shows in the late 80's/early 90's, Memphis Blues would not be obscure.  I also question his statement about opener Eyes/Estimated "tons of times" during that time period - or any time period for that matter.

1. No one who saw lots of shows in the late 80s early 90s hasn't seen Memphis Blues.

2. No one has seen the Dead open with Eyes>Estimated, at least not in set 1.

3. Eyes>Estimated isn't as rare as one might think. I count at least 13 of them, mostly in the early 90s.

4. Opening a show with Eyes>Estimated>Comes A Time?  Damn!

5. Love to see that Easy To Slip tucked in there.  Anyone wanting to check out some tasty easy slipping should grab Mark Severson's recording of the Paramount in Seattle 10-28-78.  Good Weir shit right there!

Exactly what was going through my mind as he was talking.

As they opened Eyes, I thought for sure it was going to be 6/17/91. Esp after DSO posted this which seemed to hint at a setlist with Truckin’ and Dark Star. 

 

“The Stranger shared with their readers about Thursday's show (final stanza is esp. noteworthy ;)🧠

"... to keep on truckin' through the transitive nightfall of diamonds."

 

Just goes to show, you don’t ever know...

and what would be the answer to That particular answer man?  Looks like Cats Under the Stars. Did that ring his bell?

Me and Jake were hanging around the other night watching the video 7/8/90, and he pointed out that unusual sequence of Eyes>Estimated, funny to see the band open up the tour with it. Love the Lost Sailor> Saint (no, the other Saint) Stephen curveball, too. Looks wonderful, extra fun and safe travels 😇

My favorite thing that happens....you go into a show thinking "this venue isnt great"...and then its freaking grate. Tight but scrumptious.

    • 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.

      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.
