After Midnight

Actually, Mission is on After Midnight Disc 3 song 7.

On the wall of the garden a legend did say: "No one may come here since no one may stay."

Coulda been from the late show at Kean

The " After Midnight " cd doesn't have Mission on the 3 cd's: however, their was a late show from 2/28/80 with Mission in the setlist, and Ozzie Ahlers on the keyboard: SiskB could be right.

Not Keane in 1980: Mission wasn't played

Try the 3 piece JGB from 8/9/80, in
Palo Alto, with John Kahn and Ozzie Ahlers.

SiskB is probably more right. There are a lot of "Mission" freaks out there but the clues this guy is giving sure point to a Jerry show, whether Kean or another. However, he doesn't specify GD or Jerry or both...

Buy the way, my last post here lists three shows. All were 76.

I'd say...

Jerry Garcia Band, Kean College, 1980

Ohhh, A challenge!

Must be from 76.
6/4/76 Paramount, Portland OR
6/18/78 Passaic, NJ
6/29/76 Auditorium Theatre, Chicago

I haven't listened but my guess is the Paramount.

mission in the rain

does anybody know what live show "mission in the rain" was done at where it's exclusively jerry singing and it sounds like a synthesizer in the middle of the song, or something he did with his guitar that made it sound like a synthesizer? i've been trying to find this version for a while now...anybody got any ideas?

Jack Straw


Two come to mind - I like the latter day Jack Straw's better than the earlier years' because they were played at a faster tempo and because of the crowd frenzy the final jam often caused.

These two bring The Frenzy in a big way:

4/6/87 Brendan Byrne Arena, NJ
9/9/87 Providence Civic Center, Providence RI

Listen to audience copies.

Some favorites

My first tape was 12-26-69 SMU. A great show and always special to listen to because it was the show that got the wheel turnin'. Of course, dont kill me for this, is Barton Hall 5-8-77. I love this show, I dont care how many times I have heard it, I would still like an official version remastered by the people at the vault. Then 2-18-71, the first Wharf Rat sandwiched between a killer Dark Star, very nice. I agree on the 10-26-89, that show is awesome, definately the best of the later versions of Dark Star, IMO

Best ever DarkStar Miami 10/26/1989

The energy that was in the Arena that night was beyond any feeling I had at any of the 26 shows I saw or worked on!
My buddy and i looked at each other in complete silence knowing what was happening was really special.
We only spoke about if after the show but we both had the same feeling that the building left Mother Earth.
And no we weren't high!
To think a few years later i would be in that same venue running spotlight on Jerry and him singing Lovelight! Another fond memory!
