Tomorrow would be a perfect day for a " Smokin " Loser.
wouldn't that be sweet
Just a pleasure to peak into these shows. Found the right FOTD but was a little careless in my haste and did not notice the Passaic verses Portchester as listed on relisten,
If it makes you feel better, I did the same thing, and didn't realize it until I read your comment.
Thanks, Dave. Sure appreciate you sharing this one with us.
one of the 1st tapes that left an indelible mark on me was a Garcia & Kahn acoustic show from The Ritz, NYC on 1/27/86 which has a killer Sadie...
oh yea, most Deadbases will be useless with this one...
ps... Black Pumas is an epic, alltime record...
10 perfect tunes... dig on it, u will thank yer boy ace...
ntm, it too has something in common with this show!
when it brings little gems like these. thanks for busting this one out. spent the rest of my time listening to the whole show. and it was a good night.
Thanks for this one. I'll definitely be coming back to this show later today!
This might be the only version that includes a broken string.
Hey if we all go on headyversions.com and vote for this one we can move it up to first place :^)
Not as easy as I thought it might be. Took a bit of digging outside my home library Base. Forty one days, forty one nights my guitar that I play, could really use new strings...
i think that this might be the only time that my trusty old Deadbase X has let me down, but a quick other search found me what i needed (and just in time!).
had a lot of fun just finding this one. 7 times played helped but still took me to places i have not explored much in dead history...the tape i found this on was suprisingly clear and the rest of the show was way cool. lot more one big family back then
why poor Little Sadie had to die? Jerry really puts his heart into this one. You could almost believe his last name was Brown. It's a sweet little track with a sinister story line. Thanks Dave!
Shortly before the start of the 1980 Radio City shows, I received a tape of the 2/13/70 FE version and was instantly drawn in by Garcia's snaky riffs and emotional singing, and listened to it over and over. So when he busted it out during the 10/31/80 "Phil-less" portion of the acoustic set, I may have over-reacted. Had me wondering if I had psychically transmitted it to Garcia? At that time I was pretty sure I did. One of those moments, among many that night, that make it memorable.
Such a rare treat, a whole good set for today's listening pleasure. This year has already featured quite a few treasures. And.. Thank you!
Three "First Timers" out of the first three songs. Thanks!!
They broke a string at the end of the song...that must not happen very often. :X Good luck
Thank you to all that put these out & put this thing on! Feels like you are right on the stage maybe inside the guitar (wear safety goggles, watch out for broken wires!). Nice to throw an easy one out there.
My guess is that Jerry learned this song from listening to the 1930 version by Clarence "Tom" Ashley on banjo, or perhaps more likely the 1960-1962 version by Doc Watson and Ashley from the Smithsonian Folkways Classic Old Time album. The "outlaw" in the song, Lee Brown, was caught in Jericho, most likely referring to the town in North Carolina. Unrelated but interesting in these parts, in Jericho, Vermont, we had a famous photographer of snowflakes in the 1920-30's, known as Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley, who surmised that "no two snowflakes were alike".
Thank you. Very interesting indeed. And that "Snowflake" fellow was one smart feller!
RIP Little Sadie.
Soooo.....I've been following this every year since it started. I have gotten maybe 5 correct. However, thanks to Deadbase X, I think even I got this one correct. It would be cool to be selected as a winner. It's also cool if I don't get selected, 'cause I get free downloads. Awesome deal! And as always...go Brent!
Is anyone else getting little Sadie for both the 6th and 7th? I was away for two days and couldn't download and am trying to catch up and Hell, I'm confused. Not that that doesn't happen often enough...
no Little Sadie was not two days in a row day. seven was ship of fools. I believe there is a spot to download them all still.
