NOT Peggy O or CC Rider

nope, nice guesses, but neither Peggy O or CC Rider and the show was from 1982...

pretty close with the year, though!!

peace

it's not Race is On

it ain't race is on, but nice try.

and thanks for the other details about the wah wah pedal etc. ahhh, Shakedown, one of my all time favorites, I might have thought that was a wah wah, since I don't know anthing about guitars, and effects... I'll give your links a listen later. I appreciate the links.

I listened.... the songs were so hot, I forgot why I was listening to them!

hmmm better or worse? no better no worse, same same but different.

different.

keep in mind, though I had great aspirations to become a rock and roll star, (who didn't) I am essentially tone deaf and lack any musical talent whatsoever... (though my harmonica skills aint too bad)

so this is like asking a layman.

because at the same time, you got different keyboards, Brent's playing the Hammond, B3 right?? so that adds some of the old trippy-ness... but, yeah, I see what you mean about the guitar not being QUITE as trippy...

"never the same since Jerry ditched the wah wah" as you said before, hits the nail on the head... but I dig both sounds. by 1989 Jerry was using the Tiger and not the same Strat or whatever it was in 1972... that is another reason for the difference... no? wat the fuck do I know?

the thing about the 89 version, v. the 72 version; during Jerry's leads in the jam... to my ears, the notes sound 'cleaner' that is, until the 'pitch' is it the pitch? what the fuck do you call it? the scale? no, the OCTIVE until the octive gets deeper, then I think the wah wah sounded better...

that is about as much musical anlysis I can handle for one day...

peace.

thanks again for the links. love both shows.

Playin' and the Wah-Wah

OK, for starters, Jerry seemed to use the Wah-Wah pedal almost exclusively for "jams" and never really incorporated it into songs like he did with the Envelope Filter. The Envelope Filter brought you such tunes as: Shakedown Street and Estimated Prophet.

Anyway, it doesn't seem fair to compare this Berkeley Community Theater 8-21-1972 Gem to anything, but check out the Playin' at this show:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-08-21.sbd.hamilton.150.sbeok.shnf

So, since I didn't want to compare it to a version that couldn't measure up, I chose one of the "Warlocks" shows from Hampton, VA. Check out the jam during Playin' here:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd89-10-09.sbd.serafin.7721.sbeok.shnf

Thats the Envelope Filter of which I speak that Jerry is using during the jam (as well as other midi). While it is trippy and fantastic, it feels to me like that old Wah-Wah captured the raw energy of the song better than the Envelope Filter and midi effects. I really liked Jerry's use of effects throughout his time on earth, but his Wah-Wah expeditions during Playin' back before I was born just floor me. Uh-oh, maybe I blew it when I was born. I disrupted his cosmic chi! Yikes! I now have a complex!!

Tougher than you think, tough guy!

Just for kicks, I call: Race is On

I'm gonna get to work on the Playin' controversy to give y'all an idea of what I'm talkin' bout.

Bozo Bus: I played at Quixote's once. Probably the best gig of my life, until the next one, of course!

I'm just a, well...porpoise.
