Nice selection Dave! Feelin' groovy!
that's digging in the archives. Thanks for sharing! Some of the prankster clips from this year are pretty interesting.
my oh my.
how about these two?
thanks for shining a light on this back corner
some great stuff to listen to
recommend the same thing from this year
either one is worth your time
...these are from before I was born.
Man, I listened to every US Blues from 1978.... can't believe I passed by the 5/7/78 show, when it's sounds so obvious this morning...……. :-)
I'm listening to two shows.... and the cues sound exactly alike...
Y'all know what I mean?
Yeah, I must have been a bit groggy this morning..
Thanks for the extra Pigpen tunes this year!
from home and computer. Thought I wasn’t going to be able to play today but, hey, thanks for the gimme. I was 3. Wouldn’t know who the Dead were for about 10 years.
well....that was easy enough....i dont listen to much from that time so i spent some listening, raw but you can feel the potential.
Love this, had an excellent copy of 7/16 and 7/17/66 on a single tape back in the day. This reminds me of that.
By far the easiest of the month...
Looks like maybe some issues with the tapes through the ages?
Some very fun deeeeep cuts to get the weekend going though! Great sound here.
A few tasty morsels from the early days. Thanks!
yesterday after 9 1/2 years of fruitless searching. Who woulda thunk a simple thank you, good night woulda been so damn hard to nail down! Now I turn my less than finely tuned ears to today's unique selection.
After yesterday's Mindbender search for the US Blues, today's seems a little to easy.
Just hoping David didn't fling us all off into space with an undocumented version...
Very cool guitar licks from the early days!
Now this place was the wall of sound, very cool.
What a blast to hear these early treasures, not to mention the kick*** blues they laid down (with Pigpen leading the way of course) and the sheer dance fun of this show. I was a mere babe then, but later I totally got into the rock psychedelia (Quicksilver, Big Brother, and of course the Airplane) of which the early Dead were such important pathfinders and fellow travelers. I've since gotten to experience some of the swirling musical cauldron that continues in the Bay Area and, despite the current U.S. Blues, I give thanks as the sun continues to shine on us all.
What a treat!
With hints of Mose Allison & Jefferson Airplane.
First time I saw them play was 4/13/69 in Boulder, and how their sound had progressed by then. Enjoy the garage band sound from '66 though! If you haven't looked around, check out the Mindbender from 11/3/65. I like Jerry's version of a surfer guitar from these early songs!
Wow! What a treat! Pig Pen doing what Pig did best! Thanks for finding this one!
I'm missing yesterday's winner. Come to think of it, last year I didn't see who won the box set. Was it ever posted?
I have never seen a winner listed for this. When I win this year, I'll post it (ha-ha)!
this morning Lemieux and DeadNet. Both of these tunes are new to these Dead ears so I'm especially grateful for these HEAVY sounding gold nuggets! Going to have to look into this "Confusion's Prince" business however.
Confusion's Prince is at my door
The crown I wear is the one he wore
He's here to bring me down some more
And bend my mind
Thankfully their songwriting skills improved immeasurably, and rather quickly. And just think what might've never been if not for Robert Hunter.
I guess I got a little sloppy relying on my first source … oh well onto this He's Gone ….
So if anyone here got that one right, I'd like to hear how you came upon that information.
You could easily pick 2/23/66 if you only checked Deadbase (I have Deadbase IX) which lists the only option for that sequence as 2/23/66, Unknown Location.
But if you look further in Deadlists, Relisten & Archive, the notes give the bigger picture and the recordings exactly synch up with what's listed as 5/19/66.
Teddy GoodBear: The above setlists matches DeadBase X. Timings
are from what DeadLists previously called "Set 1, 1 1/29/66" including
Cream Puff War. Furthermore, DeadBase earlier editions prior to
DeadBase X, also called "Set 1, 1 1/29/66". David Sorochty & Teddy
GoodBear as per "2/23/66": Standing On The Comer, Mindbender,
Hurts Me Too, Viola Lee Blues, I Know You Rider, It's A Sin and Sick
And Tired - same order as "2/23/66" as listed in DeadBase X? If so,
then we speculate that the right date is "5/19/66".
Can anyone explain to me how the hints given with each day's selection can possibly help someone identify the date and venue of the recording?
They've never been hints to find the venue and date..they only describe a little about the song, it's origins and history. They are more of a synopsis...a very brief one.
