Thought I'd give it a listen before it gets pulled from the Archive, Not bad at all. I was wanting to hear it before deciding to buy a subscription. This was the show that was described as the rowdiest ever (Altamount doesn't count, the Dead backed out).
You can definitely here Jerry trying to fathom just what the hell is going on with all the fighting & drunkeness & bad drugs. His vocal on Bertha really stands out with this line:
"Try to see what's goin' down, try to read between the lines"
I think the band just about couldn't handle what was going on right in front of the stage (and all over the place) and they all just concentrated on playing their instruments well & mellow. That is why this show is so good. They were trying their best to chill people out.
If you did the 90s like I did, you saw things getting out of hand, but, apparently, not like this show.
"Kind of Blue" or: Always sublime.
For the Good Times
This, I will say, is weird. My company's block on the website appears to have occasional lapses or gaps. I managed to get in yesterday to order DaP#1, but couldn't link from the store back to the main site.
And today on the 6th try, here I am. My next attempt will no doubt be repelled again, but I'll keep on trying. I feel as I'm fighting a war of attrition, but as seiges go, I've got plenty of patience.
Happy Friday, folks. Glad to be able to say that...
Grateful Dead - August 5, 1979, Oakland Auditorium Arena, Oakland, CA.
