Columbus, OH, Mershon Auditorium - Ohio State University
Originally a Kingfish medley, Bob brought Lazy Lightning>Supplication to the Grateful Dead when they came back in 1976. It'd stick around until Halloween 1984.

First try today with just a little extra research. Lotsa misdirection going on, but the right answer is there. Interesting backstory about the show, however, if it's true.

11 for 11 on 11/11. I love this game!!

My guess is the beep is the edit marker for the end of a previous offering. Just my theory. Go Bucks!

After listening to yesterdays tune I figured it was 74. Then after reading the comments that all but said exactly what show it was I type in the 24th instead of the 22nd. After 9 hours of work my brain is mush.

Lovin’ this one!
Another one of these...I do not see the correct venue...in looking into the correct name, the parallels are incredible!

Today is Veterans Day so find a good support group that REALLY helps those in need and donate if you can. The VA fails to provide what many vets need, so I like to help disabled veterans. Check 'em out to be sure they put the money to good use...some big name charities are not very good. Have a pleasant Sunday everyone and Wave That Flag!!!!

My personal go to is the National Veterans Foundation. The founder is a friend and has done groundbreaking work with PTSD.

version of some songs which I don't give nearly enough listening time to, particularly the Supplication jamming part and especially the keys, which incidentally were the key for me in unlocking this one. I had to be careful not to get all giddy and jump on the first one I came to, which sounds incredibly similar, so keep your ears highly tuned today and your collective heads on swivels. There's a familiar last name in the credits on this one too!

Absolutely agree, it was the keyboards that were crucial - especially in the beginning of Supplication, my favorite part as the clean bass and Jerry's stylings tempted with so many variations. Even so, I went down the rabbit hole on this one. The sound was so similar to a concert I had experienced in a different city (especially the vocals) that I was stuck on that year, finally conceding defeat and going back over and, voila! Should have paid closer attention to the timings as well. But what a nice diversion, following Jerry as he sometimes swirled around and other times went way out there, with all those versions in a short time span. Sweet!

I love the interstitial jamming, even more than the misplaced modifier in today's official hint. Sticking around for ten years all in one year upsets my whole time/space morphology. Hey, wait, maybe it wasn't misplaced after all.

Nice catch arm. I frequently misplace modifiers so I would not have noticed. If you can see the infinite in the finite, can you see a decade within one year?

Grateful Dead's space/time morphology often gets warped along the way during the 30 years of 30 Days of Dead! I don't know if that useless part of the hint was trying to throw us or not, but clearly this song combo which debuted in the "comeback year" only stayed around for a little over 3 years with the lineup presented here.

Took me a minute to find her because of SO many versions during this time period. This is a smoking version more closely akin to the following year's bounty, imo.

In the comments for Day 10 (yesterday), several of us mentioned the awesome closing jam in the 1st set. Now that Day 10’s BTW has been revealed as 2/22/74, if you missed it, fyi we rec’d that closer in 2016’s 30 DoD, on day 30. It's 20 minutes of PITB bliss with not one, but two Slipknot! teases. Worth listening to again!

and I found it on 2nd try. Wow. Got lucky. Immediately listened to more of this show & sought out the entire recording. Great sounds. A really interesting insertion in the middle of the show opener! Check it out.

This track released Nov. 10, 2014 with this hint and further comments:
"Hint: A double dose in any case…two Weir-Barlow songs that rarely were separated from one another.
“Lazy Lightning>Supplication,” originally recorded on the Kingfish record, entered the Dead's repertoire in 1976, and remained until 10/31/84. There were occasional instrumental Supplications after that, and more developed Supplication on 5/22/93 at Shoreline."

Except it went five seconds shorter, so that the BEEP was not heard! I guess that makes this year's unique?!

Yes. The three so far this year have brought the total to 12. This began in 2013 when New Minglewood Blues 2/24/71 was repeated from 2012, and Uncle John's Band 2/11/70 was repeated from 2010.
