30 Days of Dead November 14

Today's Song

"Shakedown Street"
Hint: A repeat of this year's songs in 30 Days of Dead, but it's not joined to anything like the previous one, and it's too good to not play

Answer

Berlin, Germany, Internationales Congress Centrum

"Shakedown Street" again, we hope you don't mind. We had this one and the Syracuse 84 one in mind for this for so long, we couldn't resist. This is from the first night of the two night run at the tiny ICC in Berlin.

Must Have Been a Treat

Kinda stumbled onto this one (guess I'm a "dum dum" as the clues just went right by me) but - Dave you are right - just too good not to play. And reading the comments on the archive was entertaining, sounds like this was a one of a kind, and a real gem of a show. if only...

Nice one today! Great clues gang!

it all came together for me when I heard the 1st notes of the next tune. Turns out those 2 were paired quite often so the clues really helped the fool.(me)quite a jam at the end there - so very worldly...

"Too good to not play" indeed.

I didn't immediately recognize Bobby's vocals in this one. Or maybe it was Phil? Really low and kind of Frankenstein like. Or is that Frankensteeen.....???

Well, well, well I guess there's only one thing to do about it.

Listen again!

What a month for this town. One sweet day.

Pin pointed right away & got it on my first try. Many people were divided before this tour. Not sure if they practiced every night or even if they were ready.

quotation marks

Anyone else notice the quotation marks around today's selection? That a first for this November, but now that I see it, I believe the previous years of 30 DoD had the quotation marks as well.

Great interplay

between full organ sound, klinky keys, and the guitars. I wish they would have played GSET, as I'm sure it would have got a great pop in one spot.

Nice clue

And don't forget the bass! Phil's playing on the intro is exquisite, everything tasty about the syncopation and surprising accentuation he brings to the rhythm.

And there's definitely a Stranger tease in the jam. Very fun!

I heard some teasings of Stranger later on in today's song.

Those 2 tunes had a similar groove.

Stranger

I heard it too.

Anyone notice the Land of 1,000 Dances teases the other day? Was it yesterday maybe? They all start running together at some point.

On this day, John Wayne Bobbit has his, um, member, cut off by his wife. Thus, he "lost his membership".

Didn't have to poke around

After seeing what Dave was throwing in the bullpen, I thought this was going to be a tough at bat. Knocked it out of the park on the second pitch - a fastball right down the pipe and into my wheelhouse.

Not going to offer any clues today as it would probably be too obvious (and the clues offered below are sufficiently obscure)!

As I came up the mountain, out of the misty valley into the sun. The fire on the cattle range, the potatoes in the ashes, the boathouse floating in the lake. The Southern Cross.
