This show's a no brainer! Would love an official copy!
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
It's time to reissue Bob Weir's Ace as a remasterd HDCD with bonus tracks
''RED ROCKS 8/30/78---8/31/78
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.
An excellent show.
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
You are gonna' have to provide a little more info. I searched "maid" "maide" and "fifeo" in Deadbase and there were no matches for song titles containing any of those words. Other possible titles or spellings?
I know I am probably in a small minority but I loved the way the Dead did the old Irish folk song Maid of Fifeo. I heard them do it at a show, had an old soundboard tape which I can no longer find. Is it on any show CDs now ? Tanks to anyone who knows. Burt Bayonne628@aol.com
