He's still kickin it and was a part of the Grateful Dead. It would be nice to acknowledge that here.
You might notice that some of the errors in this thread have been here a while without being tended to. These remain because they are unfixable at the moment. We have a rampant "date bug", as I call it. What it does is display show dates in an odd way. For example, sometimes you will see two shows listed with the same date or a show that is listed as being on the wrong day entirely. Going in and editing the date to be correct will not stick... but you can see the correct date change in the 'title' of the page... the place on your browser window that lists what the page is called. For now, that is the only place the correct date shows. Everywhere else, it displays incorrectly. We are trying to figure it out, and when we do, I will be able to delete the posts referring to these date display errors.
Just so you guys know I'm not ignoring you.
Deadlists lists this show as 1/17/69
I forgot to list my source for the 6-7-1969 info: I have a recording that unfortunately doesn't include the Dark Star>St. Stephen, and fades the Lovelight out at the 15:49 mark, probably right before a climactic ending. On my copy, there's an Uncle John's Band after the Lovelight, but I have no idea if it's the encore or if it's even from the same show.
Indeed, this show did take place. There are two listings for 6-6-1969; the second should be changed to 6-7-1969 as it has the set list from the Janis Lovelight night, which occurred on that date.
Also, it seems there's an electric (Bobby sings) "The Green, Green Grass of Home" before the acoustic Dire Wolf which may have an additional guitarist from an opening band or something-I'm not sure.
oopps..make that the 6 21 70 gig(s) sorry
My torn ticket stub tells me there was a show that afternoon! Funny that it's not in the Illustrated Trip book either!
I got to the first row because we didn't see the first set. The second set started with doggone and I believe that it included dancing in the streets. At the time, I wouldn't have recognized scarlet begonias, but I know NOW that it doesn't sound anything like these and it would have been an odd way to start a set. Somebody help!
My last show, with buds Tom & Rob, dosed and toast, absolutely PEAKING during this (to me) unknown TWEAKY tune - Easy Answers? Yeah, that must be it. NO set list ever has it on there, and even the (passable) audience tape CD I have does not include it. But I did NOT imagine it. BTW, this would make an amazing and surprising DixPix. Check out the slow burn boogie Round&Round. Also Lucy on sad anniversary of John Lennon's untimely death.
