30 Days of Dead November 10
What was the date and venue for this? My screen only displays "yesterdays" answer for this.
so we complain there aren't good enough hints, and then we complain that the hints are too good...........
Love this version & the daily posting. Otherwise, I would have never sought out this show.
However, the opening verse... ehhhhh
why even bother Jerry, lol
I can name at least 10 candidates
there's this one
and that one
and of course the one at that one venue
I love searching, always find something good I never would have listened to otherwise.
Sometimes I don't have the time. Even when I get it early, sometimes I search anyways. Sometimes I go back if I get it wrong.
I have been using the same notebook for the 30 days for the past few years. A rambling mess of cryptic notes. Some of which are so cryptic I have no idea what the hell I was writing about.
Bottom line for me. Good hints, bad hints, easy hints, hard hints, no hints.
I really don't care.
Maybe not the best sound, but lots of great music through this place. I drove over from Saratoga to meet up with a buddy out there for a Floyd show. No psychedelics that day, and boy was I glad. I would have lost my f-ing mind...
Went to college in Syracuse around this period, made alot of upstate shows, this one included. I do not miss the freezing cold. But I sure do miss this band.
graduated there myself in "88. Loved it there, MINUS the temps.
I was at this! One of my first shows. I believe Jack Straw was quite angry that evening. LOL!
which is a shame, because half of the fun of this folly every November is poring through so many versions of the same song.
If you find and play the "right" version of this show on archive, spend some time reading the extensive comments section.
I learned more about not only what the atmosphere was like that day, but also what the people were doing and dealing with. Also some pretty revealing insights about where the GD were as a band during that particular time in their history.
Quite an education for this DeadHead.
Grew up not to far from here, though had moved away by this time. Not my favorite era, though interesting to listen to. Thanks for giving me lots of free time again!
These are good hints...and informative. Now I can spend my time listening to the show. I'd probably still be searching if it weren't for the hint. Haha... great groove for a Friday... Thanks!
Maybe I should "Smoke a Pound" now(thanks for the laugh m-skjellyfetti).
This is really a fun version of SS. I never get tired of hearing Brent's vocals, backing or otherwise. I miss that. Bittersweet tears hearing Jerr's flubs, but it seems like during these type shows it just makes his playing shine that much brighter.
Definitely an underappreciated decade for these ears so thanks to you hard working archivist's and especially you TAPERS! Hoorah to all of you GadgetHeads!.
See y'all tomorrow.
Attended this one. A couple of easy lay ups unlike some of the other clues so far this month.
I went back further than I thought I would need to but the flubbed lyrics at the start gave it away for me.
Wow the echo drenched vocals Shakedown! Made it all the more fun & challenging to get it to sync up with the correct answer in both players. A phaser effect plus purposely echoed vocals by Mr Healy. Not going to make my best of list for Shakedowns, but it is fun to hear nonetheless.
Bobby hinting at the ol MLB jam a little later in the set dipping on the whammy bar.
reminds me of the Boombox take on Shakedown. Keith and Donna's kid's electronic project...it's worth a listen at least once, even if it's not your genre...
This was relatively easy, but it took a while because I was bouncing between upstate NY venues. I certainly don't miss the lake effect snow up there!
1977 I started attending my alma mata Harpur College in Bingotown & for 4 years I went to all those southern tier/upstate NY shows: Broome County Arena, Barton Hall, Colgate, Rochester, Troy, Utica, Buffalo, Glen Falls... in addition to NYC/LI venues.
Wow CM's offering of this show better than Dave's!? Early answer means I have all day to jam this show! Flubbed lyrics and all... kinda like last night's D and C show... just getting warmed up.
Yes, yes, - but I'm rather partial to the matrix of this show. You get the hotter sound (crazy echo and all) plus some of the excitement of the crowd. And check out the last two from the first set - great stuff.
Yet another discovery from a period I seldom explore. Thanks Dave!!
When I listened to it!
Love the CM Boards!
No offense DL.
Yeah the CM board was much hotter. Had to adjust volume quite a bit to really enjoy the sync up effect. Then I just cranked the CM after a while.
They certainly did bring it in upstate NY, and even downstate.
Looking forward to next Daves Pick from Broome County.
Second day in a row I selected the sow on first try. The hints have made it easy the past two days
I love this guessing game especially when I can say I was at this show! The sound went around and around. Greatest first set closer ever as well- totally worth the listen. Resume dancing!
Upstate New York, lovingly called the Dead Belt and for good reason. How odd that this band from Palo Alto/SF/Marin would find one of its most dedicated fan bases in the Southern Tier, and that they’d play there such a concentration of great shows. It certainly changed my life.
Although my first show was in a nearby city, I left the area before the venue was built.
"Dont tell me this town aint go no heart, you just gotta Smoke a Pound"!
I love this Shakedown (flubbed lyrics notwithstanding). New York DOES have a heart!! (You just gotta poke around). And, s'cuse me, but I really love the keys during this era, too.
hopefully they release it. been waiting to get an official release, especially of that first set ending pair. one of my best memories that night was at end of show watching people leave the building only to come back in to get sucked out again! this evening was solid start to finish
Ha! I remember the bizarre vacuum.
- Dr. Flashback
And check out that song before - Wow - Nice jam to start a Friday.
Crispy, crispy recording
The easy ones make me appreciate the harder ones more. Today’s hint plus Jerry flubbing the first line made this one super easy.
Yep, for me, too. Between Dave's hint, Jerry singing in Flubbish, and a bit of digging in my trusty Deadbase, this one was easy to nail down before I even listened to it. Lots of help on the way for today! Now I can sleep & listen to the whole show tomorrow.
Well that was not a softball, but a beach ball... inflated to huge size... easy to hit... couldn't have taken much more than thrice 81 seconds... luckily the recording is quite fine although it probably didn't sound so nice from the far reaches of the interior...
Healy worked his sonic magic in that room...
Venues like this one are certainly less than ideal for many reasons. However, when it comes to this particular one I have a soft spot because it was, in an earlier year, the site of my first show. As they say, you can get shown the light in the strangest of places...
