    Sure it's a Stella in the middle?
    On 2/18/71 there was a wicked Dark Star > Wharf Rat > Dark Star combo. If you want to stick with Stella, my favorite jam sequence is from 10/25/73: Dark Star > Mind Left Body Jam > Dark Star Jam > Eyes of the World > Stella Blue Maybe it's a China Doll in the sandwich??

    Well, if an open-sandwich sounds palatable, then check out the following DS>SB duos: 12/11/72 (massive DS) http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1972/12/11/dark-star 10/30/73 (Very Cool: DS>MLB Jam>DS JAM>SB) http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1973/10/30/dark-star 7/25/74 http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1974/7/25/dark-star As far as I can tell, over the course of 30 years and 2300+ shows, these represent the only times those songs occupied adjoining slots in the setlist./Enjoy!

    Deadbase yields no results; in fact, I looked for extended sequences that might have incorporated other songs with SB b/w DS bookends (to include just a DS Jam sans lyrics), but couldn't find an example of that either. Two thoughts: there are still some uncirculated shows and incomplete setlists, in addition to which, the band may have teased DS as an outro to SB or an intro to what developed into another song or jam that eventually centered around another theme and, therefore, wasn't ultimately labeled DS. Of course, maybe I just missed it. Then again, this one might just be your GD unicorn (I'd sure like to THINK it exists!). Anyway, it's always fun to look! :)) /K

    I could swear I read about a Dark Star>Stella Blue>Dark Star somewhere! I cannot seem to find any mention of it anywhere now, though. Any help on this? From what I remember, it was said to be sublime. I would love to hear it!

    the first Dead sandwich?
    The earliest one I know about ~ on the Database as Aug '66, though reportedly Dick Latvala ID'd it as a Trips Festival tape (thus from April '66) ~ Good Morning Little Schoolgirl -> You Don't Love Me -> Schoolgirl Jerry sings the middle of the sandwich, the only performance of this song I'm aware of (?)

3/23/74 DP24 also features: Playing in the Band>UJB>Morning Dew>UJB>Playing in the Band Enjoying it right now! The first PITB suffers from an entertaining false start and meltdown. For sandwich connoisseurs this is (according to setlists) the third and last time this combo was played. The middle one is 11/17/73 (mentioned above) and the first is 11/10/73 also on a vine! Now I see that 11/21/73 has a triple decker sandwich! Playin' In The Band El Paso Playin' In The Band Wharf Rat Playin' In The Band think I'll go and find it out there as a new years present..aha downloading now!!!! Happy New Year

I remember someone telling me that one night the Dead played the first part of "Playin in the Band" at a venue in one city. They finished the song a couple of nights later at a different venue in another city. I'm not sure where it happened, but I'm pretty sure it was during the summer tour in the late eighties or early nineties. That's quite the "Musical Sandwich"!

Thank you for the post. Great setlists! Have you listened to the Berkeley Community Theater shows, Nov.1984? From what I remember there's a wonderful "Drums/Space" that transitions into UJB. "Space" has an underwater, maritime theme to it. Incredible! At one time I had a SB recording/copy of the show, but it's long since vanished.
