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

Deadhead Friendly Campground near Saratoga?

Hello friends! To the best of my recollection, this is my first forum post.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a deadhead friendly campground in the Saratoga Springs, NY area.
Thank you very much!

Please don't be sad if it was a straight line you had
We wouldn't have known you all these years

Alabama Getaway

Yeah, it is definitely not 76-79 as the Dead didn't play there those years, and as Ted says, Alabama Getaway was not performed until 1979.

1982 or 1983

Interestingly, Alabama Getaway segued into Greatest Story on 10/9/82 and again on 8/20/83, both times at Frost Amphitheater, in Palo Alto. The song was first performed in late 1979.

Stanford Concert late 70s?

Hiya — I've run across some reels labeled "Dead Stanford." The first number is "Alabama Getaway." From the context, I believe the recording was made between 1976 and 1978. Can someone enlighten me with details? I tried searching by location but dead.net just throws darts at me. ;)

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.
