Grateful Dead

April 21 Beat Club, Bremen

About
Not a live concert but rather a performance in a TV studio in Bremen, the Beat Club show featured a condensed version of a typical Europe '72 concert, with shorter songs like Bertha and Sugaree, mid-length jammers like "Playing In The Band" (two versions!) and a "Truckin'>Drums>Other One."

Tune into a stream of "Playing In The Band" from this show.

Ah, but things were a little different when Grateful Dead rolled into town with their tie-dyed amps, their entourage of longhaired “family,” and their recording truck parked outside. Maybe the Dead knew that day that “One More Saturday Night” would be the song that would air on the May 27 edition of the Beat-Club program, but they sure didn’t act that way. Instead, after a sound check that included “Loser” and “Black Throated-Wind,” they played a remarkable 80-minute set that mixed short songs with big jamming tunes, including two charged versions of “Playing In The Band,” and a spectacular “Truckin’”/“Other One” sequence that is more than 30 minutes long. That the band could play this well in front of a bunch German TV technicians, rather than their usual sea of swaying and flailing hippies, is amazing. That it was all captured in crystal-clear close-up video is truly a gift from the gods (and if there’s any justice in the universe, the gods will someday allow that video to be released commercially).

I really appreciate these song links...

...but wish you would chose more esoteric links than Playing in the Band, Sugaree or Berth.

There's a bunch of Mr. Charlie's out there that only 7200 will hear; Dire Wolf, Cumberland Blues and Greatest Story's as well to name but a few. Come on guys and gals, use a little imagination here and dig a little deeper for the more tasty morsels. This is not a greatest hits album you're making here.

Life is often short and it's the only chance the 7201st-and-up of us might ever get to hear the tapes you guys have been sitting on for all these years. I bought the original triple album as a teenager when it first came out, and a few more times as well I might add, and I've waited a long time to hear this music. Sadly, the Grateful Dead died with Jerry and the breadcrumbs strewn by Corporate Dead are pretty darn stale.

7200

The music only version is still available to everyone/anyone who wants/can afford it. It's the travel trunk with coffee table book versions that are limited to 7200.

Beat It On Down The Line

Beat It On Down The Line is probably my favorite song on this list. I remember they played a remarkable 80-minute set that mixed short songs with big jamming tunes, including two charged versions of “Playing In The Band,” and a spectacular “Truckin’”/“Other One” sequence that is more than 30 minutes long. I can't wait until their next CD comes out.

I want to say with Mike that they should be released a DVD. It would be better.

Visage carré donne le

Visage carré donne le sentiment dur, et donc d'éviter de choisir trop Fondateur de cadres, mais contour rectangulaire légèrement arrondi semble être plus docile à faire. Bord du cadre à l'échelle grossière, peut afficher les lignes Hao long, étroit et élégant Carrera lunettes de soleil, et le visage avec, il sera particulièrement faible et sans commune mesure.Plus approprié pour le long visage ovale, ou un cadre rectangulaire, peut visuellement faire doux visage. Conception de jambe de miroir exagérée est lunettes de soleil carrera également très bon, pour attirer une certaine attention à équilibrer l'objectif de l'ensemble du visage. Perles courte, ronde vêtements lunettes de soleil et des modèles de type appropriés, permettant une forme de visage long et étroit regarder de plus ronde, ajoutant à la beauté.
