Grateful Dead

Chicago 4/25 & 26/69 Vine

started by That Nice Hippy Guy

Ok so I was going to wait and add these to one of the parts of me and dstache’s Early 69 Vine, but I thought that these deserved there own vine. This includes the short set played on 4/25 (dang velvet underground!) and the 90+ minutes of the last half and monster encore of the next night that isn’t included on dicks picks 26.

4. Morning Dew
5. Yellow dog story
6. Sitting on Top of the World
7. Lovelight

COMMENTS Jerry plays glide guitar on Hard To Handle. According to Ron
Ramsey, who attended the show, the other bands on the bill were SRC (a local
group), and the Velvet Underground. The Velvet Underground played a very
long set and as a result the Dead only got to play one set on this date.
According to Ramsey the Dead did the same thing to the Velvet Underground
the next night.

From Dead Lists Projects:
What's Become Of The Baby was played back
from studio tape while the band played space live on stage.

There are two SBD masters of this show in the vault, a pair of cassettes and 140 minutes of reels.
The reels are missing the encore: the reel-to-reel machine was used to play back the tape of What's Become Of The Baby.

According to Ron Ramsey, who saw this show, it was all one long set.
Introducing Baby Blue, Bobby says
"This is the home stretch for us. Because we're goin' home."
