Days Of Dead

Truckin'>Terrapin Station
Hint:
A couple of classic songs joined together on a tour that was the start of what is widely considered a 16 month period of sustained excellence

Greensboro, NC, Greensboro Coliseum
The Spring Tour of 1989 was the launching pad for a year and a half of excellence, bringing the Dead to the end of the Brent era in July 1990 (Fall 1990 onward is another great era).

The file tag for the download says: "day18_ojh8bys3la_jackaroe." But it is not jackaroe. It is indeed Truckin' and Terrapin. And a fine duo it is! In fact, I think I'll listen to the whole show tomorrow since the comments sound like it was stellar all around.

Yes this venue. And... then BOX! And then... another BOX!

Love this year. I think the night before this had a really nice version of a JG classic in the 1st set.

I'm here for all the sustained excellence we can handle! Pretty quick find today with that clue.

I like days like yesterday and today when we have song combos to help us narrow down the field a bit (and a big clue fromDave today). Yesterday's combo was only played twice:
4/1/86 (the answer, w/ an awesome Box encore!) and
3/29/84 @ Marin vets Memorial Coliseum.
I listened to both shows yesterday as a result of the search and boy, was the crowd pumped for that Box!!!!
ON to hunt down today's gem ...

What a cool and timely day for Terrapin with a new crescent moon last night. Coincidence of psychic phenomenon? You decide.

Well, wang dang, that's a sweet combo.

that was so eloquently played on this Terrapin, so I'm disappointed it's not included here, but it is definitely familiar.

I love how the search takes me down so many roads to shows I've not explored.

anybody else hear a wang dang doodle tease during the transition, almost like Bobby wants it and jerry says, nope ... Terrapin ...Or maybe Smokestack tease, those two are similar

i think those two and nobody's fault and smokestack are probably in the same key and similar in the long run...

skipped over this one the first time, but focused on the tease and nailed it . . . A couple year's later GD played at this venue again, it's in my collection for the keyboards . . .
Not sure if my submission took - website up & down (technical difficulties) now it's back . . .

This show happened the day my daughter was born. Which would be a real great hint if you know my daughter! And the next possible match was my birthday... Wasn't at either show, but I think I'll listen now.

ive been loving the official hints for the day, (some of the group hints are t.m.i., i.m.o. lol). The official ones thou, they are enough to point most in the right direction, yet tricky enough to lead even some of the most experienced astray! Very clever wording, keeping with the standard Hunter and the Dead set! Grateful everyday, especially the Nov. ones!

Glad the bus came by and I got on years earlier & was along for the ride to soak in those 16 months.
Inspiration, move me brightly.
The compass always points to a WDD tease...
Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings (Jack-A-Roe?!? - today's MP3 label?)

I heard it as SSL, though to be fair I admit I don't pay much attention to post-Pigpen GD blues covers other than Mydland's solos.

Got on the us in 1970, and followed regularly till late 80's. After that worked overseas and didn't have many opportunities, but love to relisten these shows. Been a great 30 Days so far. Would be good to get a little "Pig" before Dec.

At the end of Truckin there is a small WDD a longer SSL, though right as they transition into Terrapin there is a bar or two of Crazy Fingers to help ease the rough transition from truckin to terrapin. Amazing how effortless they make it seem, sound and create that flow that they feed off of the crowd with.
