This is from the magnificent comeback tour in June 1976, when the Dead played only theatres, with Mickey Hart back in the band. Row Jimmy dates back to early 1973, and was played considtently through 1995

Birthday to you Dave, and thanks for 30 DoD. On behalf of the group, I hope we passed the audition.

Beautiful version, and we haven't had a Row Jimmy in several years. This wabbit hunt won't take long if it begins at the right place.

Great version, even the lyric flub gives Keith a little room to play. Sounds like this is one step closer to the source than what circulates for this show. Don't let the mix throw you off!

Don’t hang your head if you need to listen to a few dozen versions of Row before you catch the rabbit by his hair.
You could always come back later to find the show.
Beautiful version
Thanks again David!
Please let me know if you ever need any help sorting through the Archives....

Good key work, but is there 1 drummer or 2?

make it a pleasure to listen to this one over and over. And it's also one of my very favoruites as well. What a great way to start a day. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.

Nice. I will now hear that word as fay-vo-rue-aight.
As a fine drummer said many times referring to too many things "It's my fayyyy-vo-rue-aight".

I'm beginning to think the hints are actually hints on what the song title is, even though they already give us the name of the song. lol.

What a treat, a nice, laid back version with tasteful piano and you-know-who's vocals adding just the right seasoning to the mix. And Jerry's exuberant last chorus exhortation to top it off.
Thank you Dave!

The hints tend to take the form of "A song played Live by the Grateful Dead", but sometimes there is a good hint particularly if you like Quentin Tarantino! (none of this is a hint by the way).

Maybe this one is referring to the best year of JGB (in my opinion anyway). Also, you may want to check out that interview...

The keyboards & backing vocals are helpful of course.
But I immediately went in a certain direction in time during that era due to the way the band treats the rhythm.
And the overall separation of the mix led me to that era too.
Got it within 3-4 guesses.
That first minute or 2 of the vocals and their accuracy is a help in finding the exact version too.

I noticed just now that someone mentioned JGB in comments. And while I heard this version it really made me think of the JGB style and the way they approached songs. The arrangements & dynamics.

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but is there an "unofficial Days of Dead" this year? I couldn't find it. Thanks, nitecat.

nitecat, in years past the Unofficial 31 Days of Dead began on Dec 1st and were available thru a link ... I cannot remember who the individual was/is who posts the link but keep an eye out in these comments toward the end of Nov (thank you immensely to the individual responsible for 31 DoD!!)
