Today in Grateful Dead History, right into, wrong outtro.
Makes me want to hear the other show from 69! Gonna go dig it up....
3 sets, 30 songs, one of the longest GD shows ever. The last run before they debuted the Wall Of Sound in Daily City at the end of March. Wish I could have been there. I would have enjoyed myself immensely.
Did anyone listen to the songs from 2/22/74 on "Today in Grateful Dead History" ? Check out the closing description of what played. It will air again around 6 pm Central
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.
