If Lazy Lightning>Supplication is the only Weir song to migrate into the Dead’s play list; does that mean Bobbies album Ace was a Grateful Dead release? Almost every song recorded for that project was in heavy rotation.

Also songs that migrated from Bob & Rob to the GD repertoire. Salt Lake City ( yes, it was only once )

The first note in the transition sealed it. Would be nice to get some more official releases from this year and the following....well more so the following year.

The loud feedback 30 seconds gave this one away. Great version!

Can I download Days of November tracks I’ve missed this year?
In years past, one could see/download all the days even if it wasn’t that particular day.

was the theme of my day yesterday. Came back to it many times and had it narrowed down to 2 or 3 dates, but as much as I love that combo of songs, I just could not find THE sound. Went with 3/26/83 Aladdin Las Vegas show knowing it probably wasn't right but it was damn close in many ways. Oh well 13/15 so far and still enjoying the hunt and gaining a deeper knowledge of the heart of gold band's repertoire. Onward now with keener ears to listen!

First this beauty of a free download then the first tune in the morning rotation was Minglewood 07.03.78 St Paul. Windows were rattling at 0700 this morning -

Whooosh! What a great version. Phil's really lets the bombs fly on the outro of Supplication. And the sound on this board is fantastic. If I've listened to this show before, it's been years. But this recording and the setlist alone should make it a contender for a future Dave's Picks.

Finally hit the bull's eye after picking the right year straightaway and starting at the beginning. Many little nuances to go off of on this one. The beginning noodling, count off, the send off note into Supp followed by the riffing and the bell. Unfortunately, out of the dozen or so copies on my source, I couldn't find one even close to the same quality as Dave's(unreleased SBD, obvi)but got it with a good AUD. This is such the perfect "game" for any GD geek! Thank you, Dave and even though Brent is my fave, I'd love to see more Pig tracks... wish this happened more than one month a year.

Today, two things - one, this Lazy Lightnin'>Supplication is HOT HOT HOT, two - the hint prompted me to look up Big Iron, which until now I would have sworn to the grave I had heard covered by the Dead. Must have been a flashback from another dimension. Fun day for gettin' learnt

Another discovery for me. That Supplication jam is sweet! And the sound upgrade is really appreciated - but what's with the glitch at the transition? Oh well, let's hope there is more to come from this source. Many thanks again!

Another nice hunt, again another que found me the way but it wasn't the opening count which I did not find.

I too went in the wrong direction at first but finally found my way back around. All sorts of interesting versions of this pair. I tend to associate it more with the Keith & Donna period, so it's fun and challenging to wade into quagmire of the early 80's shitty aud recordings to find this diamond in the rough. And speaking of rough, there are few instances of ear-splitting feedback to contend with, but overall this is one smokin' hot tandem.

Seems we're on the same ques. I've been keying in on the feedback too.

Not sure if anyone picked up on my Hall of Fame comment yesterday--that was a reference to the Basketball HOF which is located in Springfield Ma. I don't want to be too obvious in these clues, there's a fine line between too obvious and too oblique. I'm just trying to stay bipartisan here.

Found yesterday's show pretty easily, but continued on, as I usually do, just to enjoy other shows, only to find I never entered it! Not a big deal, as I did get picked a few years ago (though my deck of cards has gotten quite worn).

So there is a board of (some of?) the first set. Hmmm....
That one guy has the certain quality to his voice again.
I love this year's vocals especially in spring (had a New England from this year on cassette I loved).
And I love the long (school) days of the year shows from their furthest US trip northwest from this year.... great tapes.
And... when they did not go downtown in another fine sometimes cold city from this year.
But none of those are hints for today's venue, just the year.
Don't look in the dictionary and "sea under... lower-case rim"

    I got to see this one.

    This is as fast and smooth as a speeding bullet.
