I don't think that I realized how much the E72 listening experience skewed my Dead brain until I started through this show for the second time. I keep waiting for "Black Throated Wind" and some combination of "Mr Charlie" and "Chinatown Shuffle" to pop up in the first set, and it just doesn't happen. And no "Playing in the Band?"
In some ways, it's kind of a relief. But still, I do miss Pigpen...
This show was three sets electric, 1 acoustic with Jone Baez hanging out all night after the 1st set acoustic and adding in her vocals at points. She ends the night with Jerry on Baby Blue. Always wanted to hear this but was disappointed, even with Kesey's lead-in to New Year countdown... Kesey isn't bad but you can hear the air going out of this scene in the first electric set when Jerry improvises on Big Boss Man with the line "...and you won't let poor Jerry stop."
They should have taken at least a three month break after this run. They only did about seven shows in Cali and nearby Reno before starting the East Coast Spring tour on 4/2/82, but it still makes me sad to hear this. 82 was not a stellar year for the gogd, nor was 83 -- but there was still some good reasons to be on tour. There were always moments and some good, solid shows in this 2 year period.
Cold Rain & Snow; Stage Banter; Too Hard To Handle; Mason's Children
They left the racetrack a "smoldering ruin". Mason's Children is off the hook.

anyone who mentions Tin Hat Trio, Incredible String Band and Gangubai Hangal in the same post is okay with me!!

Till I speak double dutch to a real double duchess

Playing this Saturday in Knoxville, and the party has already started ... 46 hours to go ...
I just tried to create an account on Spotify as dead.net just announced they have "8 hours of classic tracks" there. I found it impossible to create a user name and password on Spotify for the free account. Alternatively, you can log in through Facebook, and they offer to set up that account for you.
I guess if they can't make money off of you, you can't set up the free account. Anybody else trying to set up the free account?
