Scarlet->Fire 2/23/78

Obviously, this is not the right date as there is no show that day. It has been played a lot on Sirius and is clearly a 78 show? Where is it actually from?

You people that are infactuated with Donna need to get a clue or keep going to Trickster shows. No dis to them, but shes played out, she aint and never was that great. When the boyz get together we dont need nastalgia, were looking to jam. and whoever said change rocks wasnt a ggod show must not have been there. except for a few loose moments in between a few songs, who else could have jamed like that-phsycedelic style

He's Gone on 11/30

There was a fantasic 40+ minute verison of He's Gone (mostly instrumental) that was played on the XM57 channel on 11/30around noon EST. Does anyone know, or can dig up that incredible track. I wanna have it!


P.S: XM57 was a great idea. Hat's off to the Sirius guys who figured that one out!

Dan Healy/Dark Star Orchestra

Ran into my old Friend Dan Healy at a recent DSO show in New Hampshire. With Dan on the soundboard it is almost creepy what DSO is able to do. I've heard some negative comments on The Golden Road from some of the callers about the band. I have a lot of respect for the Dark Star Orchestra, they aren't trying to be the Dead, they are an actual orchestra, nobody complains when the New York Philharmonic does Vivaldi or Bach. For anyone that was not lucky enough to have seen the Dead with Jerry I highly recommend a visit to a DSO show.
