browser hangs

Why does my browser always hang when I click on the Dead Covers Project, or What Are You Listening to Right Now links? I assume it has something to do with the YouTube video embeds, but man it happens on all of my computers. I run Windows 10, IE 11 with RAM ranging from 8 GB to 16 GB. The issue occurs on all of my machines. Perhaps it's processor related?

Road Trip Spectrum 11/5 & 6 shows

I apologize in advance if this has been answered before, but I'm new.

I'm playing catch up with releases. 2 that I can't seem to find are the 11/5 &6/79 Spectrum shows released during the Road Trips era. I've read that they were download only, but is there anyway to access them for purchase? It seems strange that they are unavailable given the presence of the other RT shows for download.

Thanks

Thanks both

Rich, can't wait to see what you got. I have not changed my contacts since Tony started tracking us.

I did see that article,the first that got me thinking it was possible that someone had done such analysis. I also saw someone construct "average" set lists by year (too many links ago).
As for this summer's Bobby et al. depends on whether the rumor on Camden pans out.

MaryE, thanks for the lead, but can you give a hint how one would "check with Nicholas Meriwether at the Archive"?

@just a little light....

Hey now Tom,

Very interesting topic, I have a list of tracks out of space somewhere, once I track it down I will email you, that is if your email addy is still valid from pic a nic daze.

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....

Graceful

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?

Thank you Marye and WTJ

Ask any thou shall receive!
Wow, that was quick! That post following the Day 30 track had just what I was looking for. 8-)

Thanks to you both and have a wonderful holiday season.
