Days Of Dead

"Shakedown Street>One More Saturday Night"
Hint:
Two songs, the first of which was primarily a second set (and sometimes first set) opener in its 15+ year time in the repertoire, although in its first year it roamed all over the setlist. The second is one of the Dead's few songs with words and music written by one band member

Amherst, MA, Alumni Stadium - University of Massachusetts
"Shakedown Street" debuted in the Summer of 1978, and in its first year or so it appeared in plenty of spots in the repertoire, including this performance as the first encore in Amherst. "One More Saturday Night" debuted at Keith's first show on 10/19/71 and was always a rock and roll party

    Lazy Sunday

    Kind of easy pick (rare combo), would like to dig deeper on a Sunday. But instead I listened to a ripping AUD of this show and took a nice fall walk. Always like a Shakedown from this era, but this one limps in a little before getting to a nice funky jam. Let's go more 30DD!!

Shouldn’t have to poke around too long for today’s combo.
While it may not be written in fire across the heaven, with the correct resources it should be plain as black and white.
I hope everyone’s Saturday Night was Shakin’ as much as today’s offering.
Put on your rockin' shoes when you listen to these tunes.

A year with a short-lived spring tour. Simple work of that. Just wait for it, Dave's getting ready to hit us hard. I'm not asking for it but break out a HELP>SLIP>FRANK. Make our minds go to work Dave.

Another tap-in birdie.
Gonna be a good day! Dinner with my brother and buddy at Hofbräuhaus, then seeing Geddy Lee on his book tour.

There must be danger at my door because this one was pure Easy St.

God I love Shakedown.

Some people want more cowbell. Man, just give me more wah! Whoever invented the Mutron effect deserves a Nobel prize. Whoever showed the Mutron to Jerry deserves my undying gratitude (or perhaps that should be "deceased" gratitude in this particular context...)

My first thought on finding this was wow, a board recording that doesn't circulate! But the FOB recordings of this sound fantastic. Endless gratitude for the intrepid teams who captured these shows!

What a tour! Gave this whole show a listen this morning…might have to give the entire week a spin! I marvel at those in attendance, I can’t even imagine…sounds like Jerry had too much to fast.

I was in school not too far from this venue and I can't remember why I didn't go. I had already seen the Dead twice in another venue in a nearby city so I was already on the bus. I would see them again at that venue five or so months later. But why I wasn't here on this day I just can't say why.

….every time I hear Shakedown Street, I think of 4/2/89. Tense times at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena and we were clueless. We heard the “riot buzz” during intermission. The band started smoking on Shakedown and this guy starts jumping around and “poking” everybody. The ugly look of a pummeling approaching, some girl finally approached him and peace prevailed. Next song Man Smart, Woman Smarter. I love rehashing those awesome times. Fun(gi)!

And some rockin' keyboards toward the end and in OMSA. Somehow, before hearing this version of Shakedown and looking at the date, it never occurred to me that this was the Dead doing disco. But Jerry's wah-wah really shines, followed up with straight ahead rock-n'-roll. Yessir! Wish I could have gotten one of those other recordings to sync for a matrix; oh well.
About this concert - the attendees sure got a boost to their education!
