In Search of... Info

Trivia questions, who wrote that song, when was the last time the Dead played Deer Creek, etc.

Iko-Aiko on and on ande

Way back before God gave us internets I was hard pressed to find the origins of Iko-Iko, having danced myself Rumplestiltskin style right into middle earth the first time I heard it live, and agian when I heard it sandwiched w/ Brother John and Man/Woman Smart. Like, what the f is a spy boy, flag boy, what's with the setting of stuff on fire in such a joyous song???
I already had a decent background in Nawlin's music but only in the tunes not the history. Prof Longhair, Dr. John, The Nevilles, Toussaint, Beausoleil, All manner of Zydecos, but the Dixie cups had a killer Iko-Iko. Anyhow with the wealth of info at our fingertips we can wiki up info (true & false!) about Jocamo and feeno etc ad infinitum.
The HBO show Treme has featured a lot of music I have heard from the speaker stacks at Dead shows and I LOVE it. I feel like an old hand. The Dead took me so many places around the world and up the backroads down the mountain trails and through the swamps of our own musical country I owe them and thank them so so much.
Thank YOU......... for real good time as well as a great musical education.
uh, this starteed as a suggestion to enjoy Treme where you will hear a bunch of good music!
peace!

Dylan covers

Is there any one show (GD) with the most Dylan covers?
In case of multiple ties, which were the best shows en toto and which show had the best and most Dylan covers?

Thanks!

Iko choices

I've always spelled it "Aiko"...anyway, Donna shared vocals from May 1977 thru 2/4/79.

Did the XM Iko feature Jerry with Donna or Brent on vocals? Was it an opening song or in a sandwich?

I'm particularly fond of this show from 5/15/77 >>

Need specific Iko

Howdy,

I heard a smokin' Iko Iko last November on the XM Dead Channel but cannot figure out where it's from. I've emailed them a few times with no response. It was played on 11/12 at 9:40 a.m. and I MUST have it! Any suggestions on how to figure it out? Many thanks....

you might

check the Vindex topic in the Tapers Section to see if it's already being vined here. There are at this point literally hundreds of vines here.

The Archive

There's a lot of history and bad feelings and misunderstandings and water under the bridge over this issue, but the short version is that soundboard recordings are only streamable on the Archive.

It looks like several versions of this show circulate, however. You might try asking around here, in appropriate places, if anyone has this show and would be willing to share.

I was wondering, this show is listed on the archive:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd71-12-10.sbd.yerys.1311.sbeok.shnf

But there does not appear to be a downloadable version/lossless? Is that right,only streamable?

Someone mentions in the posts about downloading, but I do not see any files available other than the streams?

Is there another source I can look up?

Thank

Probably one of the following 3 shows from 1971. I've included the songs played with it. It was played 6 times in 1970 but I believe always as a stand alone.
