The correct setlist: from dead.net and Download Series Vol.8
Cold Rain And Snow, Hard to Handle, Black Peter, Me & My Uncle, China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider, St. Stephen -> Not Fade Away -> St. Stephen, In The Midnight Hour, Dancing In The Street, Monkey And The Engineer, Good Lovin' -> Uncle John's Band
the setlist for this date (incorrectly noted as 23-Aug-71) may be:
Set 1 Uncle John's Band, Sugaree, Playin' In The Band, Mr. Charlie, Loser, El Paso, It Hurts Me Too, Cumberland Blues, Beat It On Down The Line, Brown Eyed Women, Me & My Uncle, Casey Jones Set 2 Saint Stephen-> Not Fade Away-> Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad-> Not Fade Away, Sing Me Back Home, Truckin', Big Railroad Blues, Me And Bobby McGee, Brokedown Palace, Big Boss Man, Sugar Magnolia
That mostly agrees with Dick's Picks 35, except for the fact that Dick's Picks 35 is incomplete and also includes two additional songs: Empty Pages (between Cumberland Blues and Beat It On Down The Line) and Good Lovin (after Brokedown Palace). Big Boss Man precedes Brokedown Palace on Dick's Picks 35.
The Big Beat Acid Test was December 18, 1965
I was there. My band, the Vipers, actually opened the show. I was the drummer, Ed Levin.
We weren't on the poster or the newspaper ad, but neither were the Dead.
Ralph Gleason still referred to them as the Warlocks in his review.
The "VIPs" was his misreading of our name, the Vipers.
Since we DID play at the gig, I humbly request Dead.net to include The Vipers on the bill.
The song played before the start of the 2nd set was actually "Fanfare for the Common Man"
by Aaron Copeland. It was used as the Olympic theme song. Jerry's nod to the venue!
The "2001" theme song (also sprach zarathustra)is similar but not what was played.
I was there, and can be heard on tapes, though I haven't found it on any archive recordings
Since you listed the CC Rider tease before Lazy Lightning... I think it only fair to include th St Stephen tease during space. I was there, and it is clearly heard on any recording on the archive. After Spanish Jam, leading into Not Fade Away. There was a group of people walking in front of the stage carrying a sheet with "St Steven" and a skull & roses painted on it.
On May 4th, 1968, the band played SUNY - Stoney Brook - in the middle of Long Island. It was some sort of end of semester "dance". There was a cake backstage because it was Sunshine's 2nd birthday, which someone set firecrackers into at some point.Can't say I remember the set list, though!
No apostrophe necessary :)
I was part of the group of students who booked this GD show on Halloween 1969 to celebrate the opening of the new SJSU College Union. The poster image on this listing is wrong. The poster for the concert was by Scott Peterson and was a dark forest scene with a devilish ghoul cavorting around a fire in an evil woods, and I have a copy of that poster. Please fix this. I'm a hardcore Dead Head and saw about 15-20concerts, plus I own over 50 of their concert CDs.
Not sure this qualifies, but the Roll Out The Barrel just before Eyes is pretty significant as a number. Your call.
