Dick's Picks 5: Is this my CD or a skip, it's been so long

Hey all. Recently listened to DP5 for the first time in a long while, and was wondering if the chop at the end of Alabama is there for everyone, or is it just a skip my CD has picked up?

It plays for the full 6:58, but then 'transition' to Promised Land has a chop in it.

Yeah man definitely Paris 5/4/72. Truly one of the greatest Dark Stars from this tour. Also, don't miss 4/11 for one of the best Other Ones.

Terrapin Limited 3/15/90

Does anyone know the production run of this one ... I thought it had sold out(?), but is now available in store.

Thanks!

I wonder who should I talk to to try to get 10/28/72 Cleveland released as a Dave's Picks selection? Seems to be the ur-Philo Stomp! ; )

OH yeah 80 - 81

Had their "Shining Stars", but we had lost the era of Jerry in his prime.

You must have QuickTime installed for it to work. (At least on Windows) Is it just me or were the Dead on a hot streak in '80-'81? Thanks for the tip on the '81 show Anna, I'm going to check it out!
*update* Yeah, I just checked out 5-9-81 Drums/Space. I don't hear any philo stomp (or anything resembling), nor Nobody's Fault. Just a tribal freakout on Drums and Space going right into Truckin'. I did notice several setlists on the archive have Nobody's Fault listed before Drums, including Deadbase and the Compendium - sounded pretty non-existent if ya ask me.

Excellent detective work GTed

And I really wanted to listen to the sound quality of the tidbit you mention from 1974, listed in Taper's. Alas, I couldn't get it to play through the Windows player. If you'll recall, Lemieux went through all that flack because TPTB were upset people were saving the pieces of Taper's Section and that player has been changed. I am left wondering if these are blocked from being played or if you have to be just a little computer savvy to find the right program to play it with... Does anybody have success playing Taper's Section this far back, or could this be an irregularity to the individual clip? Were you advising through memory, GTed, or did you actually get it to play?

I never did the Philo Stomp, but I sure did the Navarro & Casper Stomp! (Ahhh, memories of Mendocino high times).

I do remember a 1981 show I attended at Nassau where Space became a full-stomp freakout by Phil and the boys out of space into a Nobody's jam (5/9/81). That is probably as close as I ever got to a "Philo Stomp".
