Of all of the shows I've been to, the most memorable post Space tune was Brent's I Will Take You Home 7/04/89 out of space in the light misty rain.....the 80,000 in attendance were mesmerized....

Stay well, hope to see you at a Mayer n Sons show this summer....

Some academics are studying this sort of thing; there were some relevant presentations at the So Many Roads conference at San Jose State. I don't have my program handy, but check with Nicholas Meriwether at the Archive.

Looking for a source

I will be giving a presentation on the Grateful Dead phenomenon to an audience that has not had the pleasure of being at a show, but really wants to know what it is all about.

One of my themes will be the age-old artistic tension of absolute free-form expression within a confined framework, namely: Set 1, Set 2 with jams and Space, rousing finale, then one Encore.

I have seen some stats on which songs most commonly appear as openers, set closers and encores, but I would like to go a little deeper. I am looking for a way to document my observation that one of the recurring elements in these shows is a reflective, soul-searching, song after Space (e.g. Wharf Rat, Ship of Fools, Stella Blue).

This is my observation, but I would like to support it with some measure of “Frequency Distribution of Songs Played After Space”. Does this exist?

30 days date/complete list?

I know wilfredtjones recently replied to a post asking about date/venue/tidbit info for the last few days of this year's treasure chest. In previous years, I've been able to find a place that has the complete list of songs/venues/dates all in one spot. Not sure if it usually shows up on dead.net or elsewhere, but I've been unable to find it.

Anyone know where to look? If not, I guess I can go thru the list and copy/past the daily info but was hoping to find someone who's already done it!

Gratefully yours....

This was the better of the 2 held that weekend in Washington DC. Listening to the show on GDC in its entirety. 2 great sets, then returned with Betts and Trucks from ABB, they were incredible. I'm 61 and this music will never stop !
