Well, I still haven't been to an actual Furthur Concert, but I am getting close! (Hell, I live 45 minutes from Terrapin Crossroads and The Sweetwater and I've been to TRI twice!)
I very much enjoyed the live feeds of the Furthur concerts at The Sweetwater recently. I like The Sweetwater it is a nice small club with superb sound (Meyers, of course!)
I stopped by Terrapin Crossroads a few weeks ago just to look inside and there was a rehearsal of Phil & Friends going on. Frankie Accardi-Peri gave me and Sue a tour of the place and on our way out I ran into Phil, whom I hadn't seen since 2004 and he gave me a big hug, so that was nice. I still haven't seen the inside of the Grate Room, but I am pretty sure I will soon.
I think the odds of my actually going to a Furthur concert sometime this spring or summer are pretty good.
All my old "Deadhead" friends tell me that it is worth it just to see old friends. I have been venturing out to see more major shows including Peter Gabriel for the first time since 1994 when I sat next to a certain 9 fingered guitarist and his wife at a Secret World show in Oakland...(Peter was excellent at both shows, see SO if it comes back to your city!) I saw Bruce Springsteen for the first time since ATT Park in 2003. While I missed Danny and Clarence, I was amazed that a 63 year old could put on such a non-stop energy filled concert for over three hours every night including running threw the audience three times and body surfing back to the stage...(Why didn't Bobby do that during the Grateful Dead days?)
I want to make something very clear to all of you here, my feelings about not seeing Furthur are only MY feelings and are packed with the baggage of, perhaps, being too close to the scene for so many years. I have always hated reading reviews of concerts or LP's where the writer states his/her opinion as fact without actually saying this is MY opinion, yours may be different. A perfect example was when my friend, writer Dave Marsh, called Garcia the worst guitarist ever! We had a couple of discussions about that, and I remember in 1987 I almost took him to a Madison Square Garden show. Even Phil thought would have been a good idea!
So, bottom line after this long winded post is that what I have heard of Furthur so far I have liked, and I would like to check them out.
Maybe I'll see you there! In the mean time try to catch a Railroad Earth concert...a Bluegrass Jam Band, what more could you want unless Jerry came back to play!
I agree with Zuckfun. 3/26/72 was my first show. I had heard rumors that the tapes where destroyed or unplayable or something. I guess that was wrong! I was very pleasantly surprised to see this broadcast. Play it again!!
Smarcus --- I envy you having been around since the inception and working for the boys. Me, i boarded thebus in '81 and saw many-a-show to '94 (didn't dig the post-Brent era much but it had its moments. The GD changed my life -- for the infinitley better. I could only imagine what they did for you. I believe the spirit of the muse into which the GD tapped still exists and it DOES manifest itself at some Furthur and P& F's shows. I promise it won't hurt -- give 'em a whirl -- "ya just might find ya get what ya need" to quote. Worse case scenario -- you have an average time but I doubt it -- you'll dig it. Wouldn't ever think of stearin ya wrong, brothah.
Fine, to each his own. All I know is dogs slow down and not at my pace. Have fun being 70 at a Furthut Show. That should match right about up.
At the Academy Of Music was played this week on Sirius. Glorious sound and it's a scorcher. Thank You! This show does not circulate- all that exists on archive.org is a poor sounding copy of most of the first set. It's a 72 gem, and I hope someday this entire show is released.
my buritoes are the best
the bullet smarcus! I took my girlfriend to the show in Portland just before Phil's 70th bash. She never "got" the Dead. My brother and his wife drove in from Madras Oregon for that show. His wife didn't "get" the Dead. The ladies haven't missed a New Years Eve show since.
I started going to Dead concerts in '67-'68. I stopped in the mid 80's. I saw my first Furthur concert 12/30/09. As they worked their way into "Here Comes Sunshine", I looked up to the balcony at all the swaying folks and then around me at all the smiling happy swaying people. Tears born of happiness swelled in the corners of my eyes.
This isn't a cover band and if you are going to see the Grateful Dead you will probably be disappointed.
Tickets can be hard enough to get already, smarcus. Stay home and listen to recordings and write opinions. I never saw a Dead show that I didn't like the recording of better anyway ;-)
Killer show: my first Eyes of the World, after a Dark Star !! Bird Song? OMG !
