Days Of Dead

Eyes Of The World>Fire On The Mountain
Hint:
A unique combination of Hunter-penned songs, it was always exciting when the Dead played such out-of-left-field sequences

"Eyes Of The World" into "Fire On The Mountain" was a one-off combination. It was always fun when something so unexpected happened, particularly in the later years, like the "Playing">"Rider" 8/5/89 and "Help">"Slip">"Fire" 9/20/91.

30 Days of Dead is a three-eyed monster this year.

thanks for bringing us to this moment in time
so as far as the studio outake the other day i believe -in keeping with the theme of 2020- that Dave only has 29 calendars and they had to make one no one could guess. yep bet that's it.
on that note here's a little conspiracy i uncovered during my rooting around the other night.

I was just reading about what a nice vibe these shows had last night. Coincidence or not, this is cool. Thanks as always Dead.net! :-)

Pretty envious of you Heads that got to see any of these shows, let alone 8 in a row on a tour (ahem, TheeAmazingAce333), as I didn't get "on the bus" until a couple years later.

Eyes of Fire. Thanks Dave & Co!

Didn't get to this until nearly lunch time but.. holy #$%&* Batman! Finally hit pay dirt, just a bit after hornsby paved the way. Thanks so much!!

If only.... I could have gone to this show, but foolishly had sworn off any "stadium" concerts. Oh well, thanks to Dave we get this extended take to enjoy forever. Jerry's sweet long meandering filling the middle of Eyes (the closest thing we'll ever get to "easy listening" from the Dead) helps soothe the soul, then that tiptoe transition into Fire and more expansiveness before the heat. Jerry's voice may have been nearly shot, but the chops were most definitely still there - low in the mix toward the end of fire, but he was smokin'! Damn nice half hour of goodness.

Now, excuse me while I listen to more from this show. Keep on truckin' fellow travelers!

Another winning name I recognize!

Went ahead and listened to the rest of this set today and so glad I did. It's one of the better shows I've heard from this era.

Man, I like this show and this ONE. jamming the show now. Archive levels seem much lower than what Dave is putting out. This would be a cool free download series show.... Ya heard me, Dave!

Dave put the softball on a tee for this one.
Not hard to discover the song that the morning brought today.
Didn't have to poke around long at all.
Don't tell me the band ain't got no heart during this sequence.

Nice n easy for a Mondee
Crystal clear guitar tone that points right to a certain year or 2.
I remember this tape as one of the good ones from when the tapes got a little bit more slim pickinish

I will admit I am not exactly "knowledgeable" about this particular year, but this specific bit of music sounds better than most people I talk to give it credit for. Goes to show you don't ever know...

I suppose I just saw a handful of shows after this one but it is a gem here. Indeed the piano and segue are the keys but even the first 10 seconds of Eyes made if clear this was it.

Beautiful and uplifting! I even heard Jerry laughing(and could happily picture his hearty smile), during the latter part of Fire. Goes to show there's still gold in that particular eras hills. Go get it!

I prefer playing live for sure, just as an experience, it’s definitely richer, mainly because it’s continuous. I mean, you play a note and you can see where it goes, you can see what the response is, what the reaction is. It’s reciprocal. In a studio, you can also do that, but you’re doing it with the other musicians. When you have a group of musicians in a studio, it’s not unlike having a room full of plumbers. I mean, what we might be interested in as musicians and what we’re doing might not relate to anybody else. That’s the difference.
