Is that Sugar Pie Honey Bunch?
Got this one 1st try. Picked "Zoo Mass" as my first listen because my 1st show was the night before at a College hockey rink in Billerica. I had heard some of the music from a friend's older brothers record collection, but had no clue as a15yo kid. "WTH was that" was all I could think. Went to as many shows as 8 could over the next 16 years and beyond. What a ride! Thanks for all the great music. Love it all, even the rough patches.
Dave's knocking it out in my area this 30 DoD. Two months three days earlier the same state and that being on a special so-called day and my
B-DAY... a different venue I catch 5 of the same songs. Nobody PROMISED that would happen "around" here. Tho todays listen has another special B-DAY!
Two-thirds of the way in now, and we've already got over five hours of glorious music.
Had to get this one right. I missed them when they came here, and I've lived here all my life...
Easy street again although pitch and speed vertigo. Thought it was going to be a sneak sample but no.
Six in a row. And I'm not very good at it.
This one first try but It wasn't very hard.
Trying hard for that calendar, or more!
I saw my first show just 2 months before this one and they played the same Brown Eyed>Esau then too.
And boy did it blow my mind. My mind was absolutely completely and permanently blown by the end of the first set that day, but this combo played a big role in getting me prepared for a full facial theft! That was in part because Brown-Eyed Women was one of the songs I actually knew -- but I had never heard Jerry play it like THAT! Wow! A couple songs later they closed the first set with Let It Grow and the top of my head is still stuck to the rafters of that Coliseum to this day.
sounds like Black is Black by Los Bravos
& sounds as if The Band was doin' the Casey Jones'n during this time because other shows with these two were outrageously High Speed!!!
Saw the band more than one hundred times, and can’t begin to count all the other solo, side projects, and post-Jerry death configurations of the remaining members of the Grateful Dead I saw. I can say, without equivocation, that this was the worst show I ever saw. I’ve listened a few times since then, and, NOPE, time hasn’t improved it any. Today’s combo (the BEW/Esau), along with the show opener, were the day’s highlights. Of course, the people I were with, none who were really Heads, had a lot to do with the poor vibe. And the car’s water pump went as well, forcing us to remain two days longer in this hellhole- hard to believe we couldn’t find a “mechanic.”
Must have been something in the water…
Not my 1st show, not my only tour, but the 1st show of my 1st tour. Just happened to park next to some people that we then toured together and became life long friends....
On the Early Years This GoRound!
A fine union. There are some very fine Brown-Eyed Women as well. Jerry's guitar solo after the first "old man's gettin' on" is very fine. Sure does sound like the way Mayer plays it with Dead & Co. Imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery. I found the vocal harmonies of BEW great.
This is the year I got on the bus just a few weeks after this show.
I was definitely shadowboxing the apocalypse that day.
I have been wandering the land to see this band ever since.
Sometimes at night I dream I am still seeing that hairy man playing the sound of thunder.
This old man has never been the same again.

...is just the beginning.
One more day then off for five.
this seems like a deeper cut than most. one of my favorite things about 30 DoD is the various humorous vocal flubs we get to hear in these ragged-but-right offerings and then remembering the various states of inebriation the band members were in :)
Finally got there without time for the whole show today. I should have caught those last notes a little sooner which would have helped.
my first pick practically synced up to start. as did my second. sometimes it's the space between that lets you know you're on the right path.
the start and end of Esau is where the keys to the puzzle can be found
