Joined for the first time on 3/18/77, the debut performance of Fire On The Mountain, Scarlet Begonias was joined to Fire quite steadily until 1995. Although it was always exciting, it was also a bit jarring to hear either song without the other

What a monster. I was actually at this show (second one in three days from 30 Days this week) and have fond and wild memories of the evening. Thanks, Dave!

Great catch there, Jamgol. Not sure I would have noticed, but I listened and heard it too. Interesting variation, intended or not...on the fly poetic license, perhaps even serendipity in action?

Must...correct...typographic...error...aaaaaaghhhh...

MOUNTAIN

Singular, please.

I'm OK now :-) Wish I could actually correct it so I'm still twitching, but just venting helps a little. Now I return to trying to find this long(est?) pair out of all the others.

The little bit of feedback just before this line was a clue for me. Pretty hot tour from what I've heard; envious of those who were at these shows that we listen to on here every day. Must be kinda surreal listening back all these yrs and then realizing "fuck, I was AT this show!". Happy hunting today!!

I started out searching a year or so in the future. Then realized tempos and Bob's ending little blips/echos weren't matching up with the version on the site here. And a certain voice in there who sounded much different this year than in years later.

Speed of the site's version here doesn't quite match up with the others I found. Hmmm...

Ya this person sounded so innocent and smooth during this year, holding notes longer and higher.
Then he got some rust in a good way.

Tempo and keyboard effects right at the transition are very telling of a certain several month period...

LOL. I love this period of the Dead, but it is funny to hear someone sing like Donna. John Mayer does a good Donna these days. This version is really wild since the keyboards are all over the place. It's good to know that Scarlet/Fire was happily married longer than I ever was.

If you listen to certain choices made by a certain member then you’ll know what year it is. Remember, one man gathers what another man spills...

Playing every year since day one and I finally won. Thanks for another great 30 Days.

I also enjoyed Phil's notes during the instrumental coda which ends Scarlet before leading into the jam. And check out Bobby's chicken scratching during the Fire on the Mts. intro, all very cool stuff. I don't know if it's a first-ballot Hall of Famer but it's a fine example of the domestic bliss that was Scarlet Fire.

Wow. What a great version. Don’t think Obe ever heard it before. Just kept giving. Fantastic recording quality for the era. Makes me think it’s from...
Look forward to finding out.

I have played the last nine sessions and counting, never won the guess of the day, but won friends and music galore, which ain't too shabby. Today's offering, I heard about 4 keys, then went on a forage, and what do you know, I found it on the first listening. That's three times I got it on the first try this November if you include the gimme SMR. Not gloating, not bragging, as there are so many of you better at this than I, but I do have a little extra kick in my step tonight. Also, this was three days before my first show. Were you there three days later, D-Rae?

I was way off on this one. Took a long strange trip out in the keyboards world before finally coming to my senses. The trippy transitions and the rocking' rhythm should have steered me to the correct period - well, finally got there. And what a marvelous version - man, the energy of that audience - must've been a hoot of a show to have experienced in person (hats off to you D-Rae). Now, excuse me while I slip back into listening bliss...
