November 04 - November 10
Every Friday we'll be sending you off with a Jam Of The Week, hand-picked and delivered by tape archivist David Lemieux. Listen to it on the weekend. Listen to it at work. Listen to it all day long...but make sure you tune in or you'll miss out because these little nuggets will stream for ONE WEEK ONLY!
This week's Jam is from:
July 21, 1978
I hope someone can help me figure out how to download the 30 days of the dead stuff into itunes. I just got an iphone, and am pretty clueless, but would love to break the ice with this offering. When I "download" the song, it goes into what looks like a quicktime folder or something, and I can never find it again. How do I open itunes to download from 30 days?
Re Jam of the week for Nov. 4-10, 2011: Uh, what jam? This is first set individual songs.
I wanted to say "thanks" to all involved in these gem's, and just want to say, nothing like them first set "Row Jimmy's".
no monster rats thats what gives
wondering, is there a way to download jam of the week to my itunes. some are better than others.(my opinion) and i like this one a lot--thanks
It's way past my bedtime, but if what you all say is true and this is Rupp, I was at this show. It was a beautiful Spring night. I'll look forward to listening in the morning. I took three newbies to the show and I have plenty of photos, but they're slides. I really should do something about that...
"I have been going through a GD saturation phase recently where I just couldn't stand to hear them," you said.
Every year after Shrove Tuesday, after I have dutifully shriven, I give up the Grateful Dead for 6 (sometimes interminable, sometimes quick) weeks for Lent (related to the word Length; that is, for the Long Run). It helps me enjoy music like Derek Trucks and Calexico.
Near the end, I look forward to Easter like an Ice Cream Kid trying to shove that cone right through my forehead. I usually put on some Grateful Dead jam that has no name, like something evolving from an Alligator, and that usually puts it all into perspective. What I really love about the Grateful Dead is how beautifully they composed while performing, without the limits that the future can place on an idea.
This must be from when they just starting doing the seamless transitions with the cowboy songs (Mama Tried>Mexicali here). I don't remember them doing it very much before this. By the way is Boston '77 the first Estimated followed by Eyes? I don't think there's a transition there though. By the way, what the hell is he talking about before 'polka time'?
Maybe I should go back and just listen again. Enjoying the Jam of the Week this week and every week. Thanks dead.net!

However, this selection sounds pretty good. I have the second set on tape (and CD, I think). that second set rocks! (Rupp Arena in KY = strangest of places)
gotta listen to that one soon. FAR OUT Playin', sweet (Napoleon Dynamite) Truckin', Werewolves encore.
GD April 78 has lots of goodies.
