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)
10/30/73 (Very Cool: DS>MLB Jam>DS JAM>SB)
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! K
DarkStar>Slipknot (tease)>Stella Blue
That's as close as you will probably find i think.
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!
Enjoyed a nice Frank Zappa/Yes sandwich this morning. Bamboozled By Love-> Owner of a Lonely Heart (guitar solo)-> Bamboozled By Love.
please watch, comment, and share. thank you.
...the Live Dead archive, not the database.
Caution from February '66, but that's only half a sandwich>
LOVE the Playin' -> Supplication -> Playin' from 9-24-76 on the Cow Palace bonus disc.
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 (?)
more from San Diego Sports Arena 11-14-73....
Set 2 starts with truckin>Other one jam>other one>jam>big river>other one>eyes of the world>other one.
through in some wharf rat after all that, and you're gonna want to loosen the belt for a while and let that digest
