Today in Grateful Dead History! Come join us!
David LeMieux is featuring 5/17/78 today on XM's "Today in Grateful Dead" segment. I woner if he's playing the recording Charlie Miller equalized?
This show date recording is part of the Mixed Bag GD Vine: is it still circulating?
To David's credit as archivist, he did pull out a 2nd set recording of 5/16/78 yesterday. This show is NOT listed in Cosmicbadger's voluminous Vindex. In addition, the LMA only has an audience.
Enough is enough. This is not the topic for partisan rants, especially partisan rants not of your own composition. Try the current events topic where at least people know what they're in for. Post and commentary thereon removed.
Reposting articles from other sources isn't allowed here either, so post a short excerpt and a link to the source next time.
Woke up this morning @ 5:55 am when my 15 year old golden retriever, Honey, started to bark.
I let her out, noticing she's movin' much too slow.... I shuffled out behind her to get the paper.
I hurried my pace back to the house, cuz it was 45 degrees (Fahrenheit). Flipped on GD History to see what David L was playing, being just after 6:00 am.
El Paso > Brown-eyed > Greatest Story and then Loose Lucy! 1973, not 1972!
Next song was Beat it on Down the Line with a bunch of lead-in bass thumps from Phil.
37 years ago I made the drive from Oxford to Indy with a VW van full of twirling girls: indeed, this was a fun show. I think some guy climbed up on stage to visit w Donna.(?)
Thanks, David, for providing the great sounding board. Looking forward to the replay at 6 pm!!
P.S. I just noticed an MOTB audience recording on archive.org from 10/27/73 that might be good.
Happy Birthday Pigpen!!!
3 terrific shows occurred on this date: I'm fortunate to have been at 2 of them. 9/3/72 was a 3 set show on a beautiful sunny day in Boulder, with an afternoon rainstorm to cool us off. This was my first show that really put me on the bus. We all appreciated the gifts from the Rainbow family.
13 years later I attended the Starlight show in KC when Cryptical opened up the 2nd set. Listen to the Oade recording and enjoy this great show again.
On XM Sirius right now, 9/3/77 is playing. Dick's Pick 15 offers a soundboard recording....
I had just returned to Bellingham,WA from Coos Bay,OR, where my father had cashed his worldly chips two weeks prior....I stopped at the tavern for a "coke and a smoke". I looked up at the television above the bar,and there was Jerry smilin' down with a black frame around his face and today's date 1995....I miss you Jerry, but I have survived and I will get by....Thanks for the music and the good times shared and yet to come....
the Hell's Angels. 8/07/65, 3:00 p.m. at Kesey's in La Honda. Two days of debauchery - ooooeeee!!! Further. Deep in the Rusky Dusky Neon Dust.
