Since I've Been Loving You
There might be better versions available out there, but if you stream/download it from Archive as I have, there is a tape splice during the first UJB and the five individual tracks don't match up exactly right, which is a real drag when you're immersing yourself in the beauty of this jam, and how they morph the songs into one another. So I took the liberty of playing with them, taking out about 5 seconds of audio around the splice so that it passes by without notice, and matching up the tracks into one amazing roughly 40 minute or so mp3. Download here if you'd like:
Playing>UJB>Morning Dew>UJB>Playing November 17, 1973, Pauley Pavilion, UCLA
Some great places to get started! Thanks.
New! Check Archive for 4/26/71. SBD FLAC. Eight tunes of sweetness. Jerry on pedal. Guess I'll have to throw on the Dead's sets, too.
They all sort of morph though time, and that's half the fun. But you used the word significant (significance outside of a strict statistical implementation is actually subjective and context-dependent, and I shudder when considering the implications of legions of statisticians and actuaries measuring Dead songs for Significance..."Excrement! Rip that whole section out!") so I'll assume you meant substantial instead. First, there's the glaringly obvious ones where Bob covers Pig (Lovelight, Good Lovin') and then Dancin' In the Streets (compare 60's versions with 78-on versions) and one of the biggest is Friend Of The Devil which transforms from a lively, up-tempo country ditty in the early 70's to an almost lethargic heroin dirge by the end of the decade.
I've been into the Dead for a long time, but I'm sort of just now opening up my mind to the live stuff. Took me awhile to be able to sit through a 20 minute jam I guess, but I'm there, and now I'm loving me some 30 minute dark stars, and some of the really cool song sandwiches. Which (finally) brings me to my question: I'm freaking out over the Pauley Pavilion show with the Playing>UJB>Morning Dew>UJB>Playing sandwich (one of the most amazing jams/song medleys I've ever heard), and I'm noticing how different, much slower and soulful this Morning Dew is than an earlier version I have. Are there other songs that they significantly changed their arrangement of over the years that I should be on the lookout for?
