it's funny because it's true
was lucky to hear this played once. not at this show. one of the other ones
On this one you have to listen to the songs from different shows ,since it was played so few times I went to archive looked up each date and the timing of the song none matched so I started listening and was able to pick it out ( for a trippy effect play the version here and archive version at the same time ) which ever one you start 2nd will need to be adjusted forward at least 1 sec to sync them up
I was off about 10 years on yesterday’s guess. Bad on me. But still love trying and listening. Keep it coming
They almost played the tune again (before Tennessee Jed) in June at Sandstone, but alas it was not meant to be...
-edit- up early this morning!!
Wow, good ear on catching that subtle tease by Vince at Sandstone; I've heard the show many times but never caught the Reuben lick there before Ten Jed.
Dave....why the repeat year? You had such a good thing going...oh well thanks for the tune! Don't think I have ever heard a GD version of this song until now?
I hear ya CaseyJanes, may be a repeat of tour year but on the plus side a brand new tune addition in the nine years of 30 Days. By the way, the Cats Under the Stars JGB album lists this opening song as 'Rubin and Cherise.'
I was lucky enough to have seen 3 of the 4 versions live. Thanks for the memories. Peace.
What a gem, and I was there. If I had a clue how rare this was in live performance at the time I might have understood why the crowd lost it. Easiest "30 Days" challenge ever, which is a relief after having to bail on yesterday (day job cuts into time for listening to years worth of live 20+minute jam sessions.) Thanks for dialing this one up.
Only took me four listens to get it - lol
I too, was lucky to hear them play this at a show. I recall the talk and excitement in between and leading up to shows after its debut, with fellow heads wondering and hoping we might hear it played. (or any other rarity for that matter!)
Only played a handful of times but still a tricky one. The key for me was the close.
I wish these easy ones were on days I work. Oh well. I saw this at Buckeye lake. The Violent Femmes warmed up. I knew of them from growing up in Wisconsin. Had no idea they had such a following. People were singing at the top of their lungs to them. Good fun!
are the words that come to mind regarding today's selection. A pretty sweet little version at that, and yes, today's DeadNet hint does speak truth. Really liked the keys on this one, not surprisingly....again.
Never got to see this one live. Never got an Esau or a St. Stephen, either. But did get to see both the only Stir it Up (which was terrible) and the Stir it Up Jam (without vocals-- which was much better!). Even though this was a gimme, listen closely. I almost guessed wrong.
The Dead meets the Tijuana Brass - love it!
... are all you need to match on this one. Unique to this take.
Hello everyone from UK. Thought it was time for a Brit to post something. As a relative newcomer to the competition this was a little easier than usual, but my performance so far this year suggests that I will probably still have got it wrong. Submitted my entry but that was more for fun than any hope of winning especially given that there is no drop down for UK! Anyway, this is a welcome distraction from neverending BREXIT politicking. Looking forward to the next 16 days......
Glad to see participation by our friends across the pond. Europe (and 1972) gave some of us our first glimpse into what magic was happening in Dead shows during that era. Can't help you with Brexit but American politics at least presents it's own cast of clowns to keep y'all entertained while you get it sorted.
Thanks for making the effort to post, even though they don't make it easy for those across the pond. We love you!
2 in a row from the UK ( yay )
love reading the comments though the competition just stumps me .
will always REMAIN a DEADHEAD ( shame about Europe )
on a separate note - anyone know how I can get my profile picture the right way up ?
the bloods rushing !!!
You should contact Marye, the GD web host who has a thread going right now with comments about the new website, glitches & continuing updates. Other people have had similar problems. Post your question to Marye & she will answer. In the meantime. . . keep your head up! :)
Thought I should thank the Dead and the wonderful community of supporters for my long and sensational ride since the early 70's
It is amazing and a real testament of the band that after all this time the music and everything associated is still so enjoyable
I got Reuben on my first guess! I listened to it 3-4 times and then thought back to all the '91 shows I attended. (This was a '91 version, right?) And I considered the spring, summer, and fall timbres of Jerry's voice -- each was unique, as you know -- and then I had to contend with the fact that he didn't change guitars during this period and wore the same t-shirt at most every show. But with razor sharp aural recall, some hard core Dead knowledge, and a little bit of luck, I nailed it. Unbelievable. I'd leave a few hints but that would spoil the hunt for everyone else.
I can't believe its Day 14 of the 30 Days, and this is my 1st guess & comment. I guess thats what I get for going where the climate suits my clothes and being on vacation. Please tell me truly true, why has there already been 2 repeat songs. Over 30,000 songs to choose from, and 2 repeats in 30 Days. I am not complaining, just saying. I love the 30 Days so much. If you could see my heart you would know it's true. Thanks for all the Grate tunes!
lest ye be labelled a complainer despite your disclaimer! :-)
Three repeats so far this year...some of us data collection types just like to keep track of the facts Jack!
Love this Rubin and Cherise!
this show. I was a newbie in ‘88 and in ‘91 had never heard this song. The roar of the crowd let me know I was seeing something special.
There can be only one.
The little filigree Bobby licks throughout help. And the amount of run throughs on the intro chords. But the website's mix is a little squashed here. Not complaining. Their mix made me think it was another show because of a certain instrument being hard to hear. Then I realized.... oh yeah! It's the show I attended! Had a board tape of this so soon after the show which was rare back then. That tape had some "weirdnesses" in there but we loved it anyway. Now, the modern era web has some nice alternate versions for us that try to remedy the oddities.
Wow what a show. A great road trip down from college w/friends (Steve A thanks for getting tickets!). They gave us some great treats that night.
Listened to this 5 times now. I need to get "Cats Under The Stars". DONE
