Hey everyone - I don't think this is a difficult ask but I just can't figure it out. I have been hearing a Bob Weir what appears to be acoustic set in individual songs lately. The other day I heard Cassidy and Shades of Gray.
Anyone know what I am talking about and what it is from?
David L came up with a clean soundboard of the Starlight show from 7/3/84: the LMA only has audience recordings, so this is quite a treat on XM Sirius. Deal just completed the 1st set and the Saints are marching on San Francisco!! Darren Sproles scores to take the lead!!
I agree, the GD History segments are always unknown and sometimes not from the same day and month. Today, for instance, David L played the 1st set from 4/11/82.
Regarding the Sirius Xm concert replays, I'm hoping 6/18/74 comes up again.
It would be very helpful if this stuff was listed online - ahead of time -
along with the seven concerts that get shuffled each week. Sometimes
David is extremely generous in what plays under this banner.
Does anyone consciously select the songs playing at random? Or is it just coincidence/synchronicity?
Why do they fade out of some songs prior to completion? I've witnessed a coupla times where they faded out of a particular song at a crucial moment...such as Jerry's refrain "be with you" during SOTM....I understand only wanting to play a portion of a bunch of adjoining songs and fading out at one song's end, but doing it in places like the "So many roads to ease my soul" refrain is sacrilegious (to me).
This also makes me wonder if someone actually does this or if it's a computer thing...?
Englishtown 9/3/77, Dick's Picks vol. 15
Let me see if I can get someone in the home office to check the logs for us.
Thanks man, it's a start.
First Bertha > Good Lovin' combo was 5/9/77, in Buffalo. Work up from there I reckon
I was eatting my breakfast this past Tuesday morning (November 22, 2011) around 6:00ish when my wife called me from her cell phone. She was heading to work and listening to The Grateful Dead Channel. She was all excited and had to tell me about this killer version of "Good Lovin' " she just finished listening to. The only information she could give me was that Bobby was singing it (so it is post PigPen) and that Bobby was on fire. He was singing about getting good luvin in Russia and China, Japan, etc..... The display on the radio only said it was "Bertha>Good Luvin". I tried to find out what show this version came from, but have been coming up empty-handed. I tried searching it on line, I checked my "Dead Base" book, I even went on line to the Grateful Dead Channel hoping to find a detailed list of past schedules for the shows showing songs that were played from what years, venues, etc..... All roads led to nowhere in this quest. Would anybody out there have any information as to what show (venue and year ((date)) ) these songs came from? Maybe someone could guide me in the right direction to locate this info. Even just a year this show was from would at least narrow it down for me. Anyone? Any help? This would be great. Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!!!!!
