1991

Thanks for the info. And yeah, I'd like to hear about some good shows from 1991. I'm a pretty young deadhead and I'm just starting to get into early '90s Dead, so I'd like to know about some of their best shows from that year.

1991 Cassidy's

Grateful Dead sang Cassidy 13 times in 1991.
On 10/27/91 in Oakland, Carlos Santana stepped-in for a tune or two.
6/17/91, in Giants Stadium, is viewable on dvd. The 2nd set has a great Dark Star sequence.
If you'd like the dates of more choice '91 shows, let me know.

Cassidy

Hmm OK, thanks. Then maybe I'm mistaken. The reason I ask is because I was listening to a nearby station (I think it was "Deep Tracks") sometime Sunday afternoon, and they played a version of Cassidy that I really liked. Before they played it, I believe the DJ said it came from a GD concert from 1991, and that that concert would be played later that night on the GD channel.

Anyway, if anyone knows what show that was or any good Cassidys from 1991, please let me know!

Last Sunday night (5/29/11)

Last Sunday night (5/29/11) the GD channel played a concert from 1991. Can anyone tell me what concert that was?

Please put the broadcast schecule

of the live concerts back on the GD channel web page. ALSO please don't start these earlier than the announced time, as some of us use a Tivo to record these shows. (For personal use only of course.)

your question...

is one I've often asked myself WRT to live broadcasts, especially when the yakker clearly knows less about the subject than the average listener.

On the other hand I can't address the particulars here because I don't know what guy in NY was doing the commentary. If, say, it was Gary Lambert, he'd be worth one's attention!

at least

Little Feat was good on Margaritaville. Disco Biscuits were interesting but a too instrumental.
Why would XM put a guy in New York to yak about a live show in San Francisco?? I turned that off in a hurry.

I'm not complaining

just disappointed. Yeah, they said the problems were with AT&T's ISDN lines, they tried three different ones. But for something this important to so many people, I hope they've learned and next year will have a second-source provider in place as a backup. Both Verizon and Sprint have good networks, perhaps one of those as their backup? And maybe invest in the T-1 line?
