When I left, it was usually

When I left, it was usually during Victim or during Eternity. I'd go to the bathroom and wander around a bit then come back in time for the next song. I read in the beginning of this thread about the one Head who would nap during Space, I was usually that person too. Especially if I wasn't driving and in big time Tour Haze. My friends would always be amazed how I would doze off long enough to get up and groove as they were coming out of it, but those naps helped a lot since sleep didn't always come on Tour easy for me.

I always seemed to run

I always seemed to run during these...
Walkin Blues (this song at times was great but after so many...)
Memphis Blues (same, same, same)
Eternity (Jerry actually made this song paletable)
Cheesy Answers (nope)
Queen Jane (same, same, same)
Don't Ease (I wonder what the difference in timing is for the longest version vs. the shortest version... 20 seconds... maybe?)
Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long Way to go Home

On the other hand I always tried to stay through Drums/Space

Dark Star

Me, I love Dark Star but have some friends that aren't that fond of it. Just like I love the stuff from the 60's especially Pig raps, Anthem of the Sun stuff too. But those same friends don't dig that stuff either. But Row Jimmy was loved, Ok Pappy I'll stop man. FUN,FUN,FUN!

Sky was yellow and the sun was blue.

Page 1 of this thread...Dark Star. I couldn't believe it either!! :)

Some other tunes of note mentioned, that are some of my FAVORITES:
Black Peter
Stella Blue (Jerry's FAVORITE original song)
Death Don't Have No Mercy (but not because of boredom - because of the "heebie-jeebies" LOL!)
Friend Of The Devil

Someone else mentioned Row Jimmy on Page 3 of this thread! I'm not alone! I LOVE the song - that's the funny thing. BUT, as I said - they RARELY hit a good one. They'd lose count in the jams, or it was just overall uninspired. I saw ONE good one out of 5 or so live. I only hit 33 GD shows overall from 87-95.

Hahahaaa

I know, I know you guys were just playin'....just find it funny that Row Jimmy (of all tunes) got ANY reaction, rather than the BIG guns, like Dark Star & Playin'.

;)

Shall we go? Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

Pappy just playin man. I

Pappy just playin man. I didn't care so much for Day Job either, just like grdaed said to each hiss own. I used to leave my seat all the time anyway go get lost in the halls for a while, especially in places that had speakers in the halls. Goe melt in the light for a while. Come to think of never really stayed in one place was always wanderering around.

Get back home where you belong

Row Jimmy

Quickly - as I don't want to usurp the thread on Row Jimmy or other songs...

BUT - RARELY did they NOT get lost in the solos of this song. I saw several versions at the shows I attended. They hit it ONCE (and I didn't have to go pee!) and I enjoyed it. IMO, Jerry's weakest 1st set tune....other than Day Job (but they were done w/ that tune by the time I hopped aboard).

What I can't understand is I get crap for Row Jimmy, but others didn't for saying DARK STAR & PITB jams?!!! THAT WAS the GD - jamming & exploring - getting "out there!" ;)

'Sall good...

I LOVED the blues tunes...all of 'em.
