Halloween and Still Nothing????!!!!

What happened? No pre-orders, no new merch, no news???????????

Is anybody running GDP? I think The surviving members should immediately dissolve their ties to Rhino seeing as how theres nothing going on.

something rarer

come on, we've all got it already... if you don't, drop me a PM and I'll b&p it for ya.

I cast my vote for a decent remaster or , better yet, some kind of matrix of :

11-7-71 Harding Theater
if that is possible, since it's one of my favorite shows and the sbd i have sounds like crap.
OK, while I'm at it:

Best Cryptical > Other One ever????

also, pretty much anything from that lost fall tour of 72 that might turn up would be gratefully appreciated.

I'll second this one

Ya man - Red Rocks 8/30/78............. I would luv to here this in SB quality. Only out there in good>very good AUD quality (as far as I know). The version of If I Had The World To Give is stunning. My tape cuts off in Around & Around, just about the time your hurling past Pluto.
While I'm here I'll throw in Chicago 8/19/80. Same deal - only out there in Aud source but wow ! One of the best Comes A time.
Thanks & Cheers...........Burnout

OK, I'm confused now.
Peggy-O is an extremely common song for the Dead. Some setlists show it as Fennario but it still sounds like Peggy-O to me.

Sorry I can't help.

That which you seek may be the Bonnie Lass of Fyvie-o, a folk song also known as Fennario. Peggy-O is a variant of this and although Deadbase does not mention it, the Setlists site returns two hits on 'Fennario'

05/25/95- Memorial Stadium - Seattle, WA
06/04/95- Shoreline Amphitheatre - Mountain View, CA

Whether the Dead sang a different version in those shows or any others I do not know

Here is one version

There once was a troop o' Irish dragoons
Cam marching doon through Fyvie-o
And the captains fall in love wi' a very bonnie lass
And her name it was cad pretty Peggy-o

There's many a bonnie lass in the Howe o Auchterless
There's many a bonnie lass in the Garioch
There's many a bonnie Jean in the streets of Aiberdeen
But the floor o' them aw lyes in Fyvie-o

O come doon the stairs, Pretty Peggy, my dear
Come doon the stairs, Pretty Peggy-o
Come doon the stairs, comb back your yellow hair
Bid a long farewell to your mammy-o

It's braw, aye it's braw, a captain's lady for to be
And it's braw to be a captain's lady-o
It's braw to ride around and to follow the camp
And to ride when your captain he is ready-o

O I'll give you ribbons, love, and I'll give you rings
I'll give you a necklace of amber-o
I'll give you a silken petticoat with flounces to the knee
If you'll convey me doon to your chamber-o

What would your mother think if she heard the guineas clink
And saw the haut-boys marching all before you o
O little would she think gin she heard the guineas clink
If I followed a soldier laddie-o

I never did intend a soldier's lady for to be
A soldier shall never enjoy me-o
I never did intend to gae tae a foreign land
And I never will marry a soldier-o

I'll drink nae more o your claret wine
I'll drink nae more o your glasses-o
Tomorrow is the day when we maun ride away
So farewell tae your Fyvie lasses-o

The colonel he cried, mount, boys, mount, boys, mount
The captain, he cried, tarry-o
O tarry yet a while, just another day or twa
Til I see if the bonnie lass will marry-o

Twas in the early morning, when we marched awa
And O but the captain he was sorry-o
The drums they did beat o'er the bonnie braes o' Gight
And the band played the bonnie lass of Fyvie-o

Long ere we came to the Howe of Auchterless
We had our captain to carry-o
And long ere we won into the streets of Aberdeen
We had our captain to bury-o

Green grow the birks on bonnie Ythanside
And low lie the lowlands of Fyvie-o
The captain's name was Ned and he died for a maid
He died for the bonnie lass of Fyvie-o
