False start on today’s file. Someone scramble to get it exactly perfect.
...I’d like to introduce the Jones gang.
there it is now !
thanks again to David and all including of course Pigpen.
There he is!
that was not too bad. here's my hint, it ain't a mystery slide player from a mystery date on mid-week afternoon jam...
Good venue, run and year.
Guitar player finnished the slide runs just right.
I just downloaded a Dead & Company show from Nassau earlier this month. It's good to hear John Mayer doing Easy Wind & keeping Pigpen's spirit alive in the music. I always felt badly for him. I don't think Pigpen realized how much he influenced the band with his love for the Blues. He probably felt like people would forget about him, but he's loved by all Deadheads.
hey wild dd bill, how is life happy to see you here playing...some of us are on d bus forever
Hey Wackaloon, I'm hanging in there. I had a heart ablation & that keeps my SVT in check. I still have some crazy symptoms, but it's not as bad as it was. I'm dealing with complications from my hernia surgery a few years ago. I'm gonna have to get one of those implants put in my back to block the pain from the nerve damage. I think I'd rather be 30-years-old again. LOL. A do-over would be nice. Hope you're doing alright.
Thought I'd never never never never never find this damn song, but alas, there it was, nestled between two big dogs. However, it was not listed on my main setlist stats page that I use as a resource (setlist.fm).
Well you're the lifesaver and my boggled mind got on track. I knew I was so close but was missing something. Not anymore … feeling Grateful!
Drum roll..........Pigpen ............Cowbell.............
A shiny black steel jackhammer couldn't chip the smile off my face right now!!!
Thank you Dave & crew! made my day.
Thought for sure this was going to be ditto from a previous year. Real close but a fresh dose. Thank you, and you and you.
I love hearing these early Pig songs. Thanks to Robert Hunter for lyrics!
Nice win yesterday, geododge :)
Just curious: is your handle a combination of your two favorite automobiles?
More a career/nickname thing!
"The (Pig) pen-ultimate studio recording..."
I see what you did there. BTW, first Grateful Dead T-shirt ever was a big ol' Pig Pen screen printed on front. Feel like skipping down the road like Snoopy and Woodstock with an Easy Wind to blow me safely home.
...is better than nothing, and much appreciated. Missed opportunity, though. What follows, flawed by a couple of mishaps alas, is stellar. You all owe it to yourselves to indulge in the entire show, and just drift out on the sonic tide. Ahhhh. What a trip that must've been!
Oh how I love the Pigpen years. Anyone have a great not dicks picks or road trips pigpen show to check out?
Easy Wind was an easy find for me today.
Nice to have some Pig Pen thrown into the 30 Days!
Thanks again David!
and very much appreciated! And though it's been said before, many times and many wayyyyys, MORE COWBELL!!
Very thankful for 30 Days Of Dead.
and the only prescription is more Pigpen.
14 for 18 so far, but........ I feel pretty confident on this one, but is there something I'm missing? Yesterday's win made twice in 8 years. Looking forward to 2023! I've got a tape from this show, and sound quality is exceptional for this era. Only saw one show from this year, but jumped on the bus as regularly as college allowed, in future years. Ohio, NY, NM, CO, a d a few field trips to CA and NE. What a ride!
and we gotta fill that prescription
edit-oh wait that was yesterday, nice anyway
still a day late and a dollar short this year
but at least i'm enjoying the ride
Definitive pigpen is 4-17-71 good lovin’
Buck n a quarter
is more like it
