Unknown, Unknown, at Unknown..... I've been there myself.
...But I found the same recording as 5/19/66 on a Grateful Dead Radio Hour. I'm glad for Phil, don't get me wrong, but it's just always such a hassle to put on something with an uncertain venue. Still, I'm glad to have caught some 1966 yesterday, and I suppose even questionably-dated shows require a little love and attention.
i had- i dunno, maybe someplace, in that one city
this megablock of tunes makes up for yesterday's shenanigans
(i had 5-19 also, apparently not correct)
05/19/66 Avalon Ballroom - San Francisco, CA
So that actually was a correct choice... and someone actually chose it and won... well alright!
I thought it sounded like the 5/19/66 version...
that someone put the 5/19 show into the 2/23 box? haha
I had 5-19-66 as well. Can't even find 2-23-66 in any of my audio resources. Oh well. Sometimes the light's all shining on me; other times I can barely see. Today's triptych is more my speed. Classic Dead! Thanks DL.
Gee I umm, pretty sure that was 5/19/66. I freely admit I may be wrong, it has happened a multitude of times. Still, may want to double check this one.
From DeadBase, "2/23/66: There is no evidence that the Dead played on this night. Tapes commonly listed with this date seem to match the first part of the song list for 5-19-66." On 2/23, the Dead were in LA, but no show is listed for the date. There is evidence of rehearsal tapes for 2/23 (see https://web.archive.org/web/20090601193644/https://www.dead.net/feature…), but these do not match the download. Back in the Bay area by May. Of course, Owsley was there, so 2/23/66 may be correct. Would be interesting to know if there is a separate vault tape for 5/19/66, as that sure seemed to match yesterday's download. Will spend a few minutes later today seeing if they do indeed sync as well as I thought they did yesterday. Trying to reassemble history is always fraught with uncertainty. Interesting download regardless.
But Relisten has some errors and I guess this is one or maybe we were right but it's unknown.
on yesterday’s curve ball. With no online reference I had no chance. Can’t remember another time I entered and was wrong. Not been able to find and not entered, yes. Entered and was wrong, no.
First of all, that "correct" date came out of NOWHERE. Second, there is no way someone randomly guessed a random date out of nowhere. What a load of BS.
Like I told you, What I said, yesterday's track would be undocumented...
Most of us Lost that one round but the price wasn't anything
7 more chances to Play Your Hand as David continues to take us off to Never-Ever Land!
The Long Strange Trip continues.....
I had to comment as well, and I would like to be proved wrong that yesterday's show was indeed not 5/19/66. Here's my case that yesterday's show was 5/19/66: There are at least 4 versions of the show labeled 5/19/66 on archive.org, and those were all a perfect match for yesterday's show. According to http://deadessays.blogspot.com/2018/05/1966-show-list.html, "it should be stressed that most 1966 tapes in the Vault have either the wrong dates or no dates on the labels, so a lot of the placements here are conjectural." If you go to that link and look at 5/19/66, it says (the Vault reels are labeled "2/23/66" and "3/12/66"; however the venue from 5/19/66 matches what's here on dead.net. On that same page, look at 2/23/66 - It has 2/23/66 listed as a home recording, recorded at Bear's house in L.A. Now look at the show archives here on dead.net https://www.dead.net/shows-by-year?page=2 There is a show listed for 5/19/66, but not 2/23/66. I believe the vault tapes are mislabeled, and that 5/19/66 was yesterday's show. 2/23/66 was actually a home recording from Bear's house. Just because the tapes were mislabeled doesn't mean we were all wrong. Prove me wrong.
I could listen to differing versions of He's Gone > Truckin' > TOO all day, at least until my wife tells me to turn it off!
Bob and Jerry musta took a beer break at the 30 minute mark. Thanks Dave!
Yeah, I'm sticking with this as my filename for yesterday's selection:
23 Standing On The Corner - Mindbender (1966-05-19 Avalon Ballroom - San Francisco, CA)
"Straight Theater benefit" . This is indeed 5/19/66 Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco (Thu.) Jerry mentions a couple bands that are supposed to play next at the end of Cream Puff War and that they would be back later to close out the night.
ps Just to be clear I don't care if anything changes to me Phil's the winner.
so ...another unavailable source for comparison with an 'unknown' location. An uncertain date, (previously listed as 11/29/66 - according to DeadBase) but in a box, labeled by Owsley during the time of and deep into the Acid Tests. Listen to 5/19 and you can hear the intro banter and all the other details throughout the songs that make it the perfect fit. I'd like to know how Phil from Carmel got it......is that you Lesh??
With the confusion of dates, that's what clinched it for me. It's gotta be the Straight Theater benefit...5/19/66. Listen to Jerry's announcement at the end of Cream Puff War.
Is delightful as well.
[grumble, grumble] I went for The Matrix, 1966-11-29 yesterday, and I feel I was right. Listen closely to the faint pre- and between-songs chatter and to Pig’s doodling on the Farfisa. But then again, two things occur to me: 1) the posting on IA attributed to The Matrix could be incorrect, provenance of recordings from 1966 is probably effable, 2) I can’t complain, I’ve won calendars twice in the last several years so count myself as lucky, and 3) we’re all “right!” I’ll repeat others’ sentiments that this is such a great, fun thing for Dead.net to do and there’s no right/wrong about it, we’re all lucky people (and dogs).
There were three playings of Standing on the Corner, and only one followed by Mindbender, 5-19-66 at the Avalon. It syncs perfectly with what's on relisten, even the pre-song banter attached to the end of BIODTL. I thought that it was a slam dunk. Ah well. Maybe the Powers That Be have access to better/different information than us mere mortals.
Hey Phil from Carmel, if you're reading this, I am incredibly curious as to your source of this information. I won this year already, and absolutely could not be happier for you... just wanted to know where you came up with that date and info... Please share!
The source i listening too was a perfect match and as it was the Matrix (massive Airplane fan) i was deliriously happy, but if only i'd read the tapers comments fine print it would have cast doubt. I discounted Avalon as the source i listened too didn't include the opening banter. Oh well.
Set 1 is actually 5/19/1966 set 1sets 2 and 3 are from The Matrix on 1966-11-29.
Her distinct and powerful vocals really make certain Dead tunes soar for me, and I find them lacking without her when I hear them played nowadays. Thank you Donna Jean! Also thanks to DeadBase....again.
Ha! I also went with 5-19 for the same reasons/logic posted by others.
How about a compromise and we agree to 420 ?
"Well I ain't often right but I've never been wrong".
The brief jam out of Truckin'--a little after it starts to get Other One-ish but before the bass intro to Other One proper--is really nice. Sounds like they were thinking about a Feelin' Groovy jam for a second. Very fun version here.
Phil the winner here...…..I opened up my DeadBase IX, spent 15 seconds looking up Standing, only 2 options, and chose the only correct sequence. Only one sure way to get to the bottom of this: we need to contact Bill, Phil, and Bob and ask them. They would know; they were there. Love the 30 Days every year!!! I'm 4 for 23 this year, but only takes one, or the other one.
Well, just what we needed to round out the weekend!
Can't help wondering if Dave pulled a fast one on us yesterday (documentation of it being the Avalon Ballroom show on 5/19 seems pretty well established) so that he could drop this absolute cornucopia of Phil on us today. Gotta love that deep, rich, awesome bass! So "Phil" was the winner yesterday, but we're all winners with Phil today. Lesh - yes!! (And some of the other similar monster jams through the year are gonna keep me happy for quite some time to come). Oh boy!
After reading Phil's comment I did a little research and found Deadbase XI on the Archive: https://archive.org/details/DeadbaseXIGDSetlists19591995/page/n5
I thought I'd share since I've been playing all month and didn't know it was there until today! Ha!
This has been a very cool experience! I'm learning new things about the music each and every day! Thanks Dead.net and the rest of you for being a great community to be in!
I actually identified this one pretty quickly. Not that I'll ever be a winner, haven't been one despite many correct guesses over the years.
I've been playing since day one and I finally won this year.
Truer words, I think this is my 6 or 7 year and I was delighted of winning a single last year. The prize(s) are just a bonus though right?
Only found 21 worthy candidates, making it much easier.
I'm just going to say it again, http://deadessays.blogspot.com/2018/05/1966-show-list.html points out that "Setlist sources like deadlists and deadbase are considerably out of date, and recent tape and date discoveries are scattered across several sites..." I believe Deadbase IX was printed in 1995, and the last (print version) of Deadbase was printed about 20 years ago. Anyhow, I'm not trying to change anything either (yesterday's winner is still yesterday's winner), but I count on Dave and dead.net to be the experts and have the most up-to-date info. In historical and archiving disciplines, we get new information all the time. I would like to know we're getting the most recent info and not counting on 20 year old resources. That's it - anyways loved the songs regardless. There's been some solid choices this year, IMO!
This version has been featured elsewhere on dead.net a couple times in the past. This show is dear to my heart as it took place within miles and just days after my birth. I think the dead seeped into my consciousness at a very early age because of this show! Thanks for the stellar output this year Dave!
One of the final Nudie suit shows :)
Oh MY!!!!!! This set rocks....especially Truckin' > The Other One. The show is great....definitely got me in the ZONE!!! Thank you Dave!
