CHINA/RIDER

I don't know why tis doesn't get mentioned more often. Maybe it was my state of mind the first time I heard it, but the China/Rider from Miami Jai Lai in June of 1974 is without equal. In the jam out of China Jerry keeps taking the band to higher and higher peaks with relentless speed and abandon culminating in an incredible creshendo that races into a furious equally fast paced Rider. Check it out!

The version of China Cat/I

The version of China Cat/I Know You Rider from Without a Net. Ive heard other really good versions but none with near as much energy

if i had to pick one

it would have to be "scarlet begonias" from the orpheum theatre in SF 7/18/76 ...

i taped that show off the KSAN FM b'cast and listened to the cassettes incessantly for many many years ... in fact one summers night in '78 or was it '77, in the front yard on 47th & judah, in SF, i shared this tape with our new neighbors (just moved to SF from LA) who had never heard the dead ... they were instantly converted ...

i still think it's the best version ever ...

Chimin' in

3/18/77 - a unique show - I've had a single cassette of it and always look forward to listening to it. I dig all the songs on Workingman's, but I think the three that are absolute diamonds are UJB, High Time and Dire Wolf. Each of the others has availed itself to opening either in a vocally nuanced or an extended jamming context when played live. I realize UJB has the D minor vamp that can go a lot of places live, but the vocals on the studio version are absolutely beautiful! Oigame!

"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."

A HELL OF A SHOW!!!!!

QUOTE FROM SW FL CHIP -"GrayFolded - 3/18/77 is a great all-around show, don't you think?"

Indeed my friend...A great show indeed...Scarlet>Fire to end a hell of a first set...And the 2nd set combo of Terrapin>Drumz>NFA>Stephen>Around is big time and I love UJB for the encore....I agree Chip,early 77 is in a league of it's own.......And by the way, I love Dire Wolf..Never found a live version that really moved me the way the album version did....

hmmmm...time for a couple more

Dancin from 5.22.77; - DP 3; Garcia is off the charts outragously good here; although the Dancin from Cornell is no slouch

Peggy-O - 5.5.77; jerry just so smooth vocally and muscially; the notes slink and slide and become one; of course that could describe 1977 in its entirety

more later
