Tennessee Jed, My Brother Esau, Althea
Hint:
Three songs that debuted in 1971, 1983, and 1979. The first and last stuck around for the remainder of the Dead's days; the middle song was only around for four years

Tennessee Jed was never recorded for a Grateful Dead studio album, with its definitive recording being on Europe '72; My Brother Esau was only around 1983-1987, and was dropped short after the release of In The Dark (on which it was only included on the cassette version and the Touch Of Grey song B-side); and, Althea was around 1979-1995, an always-welcome song in any first set

while i'm just sitting here listening with nothing to do, i wanted to mention a show i stumbled across during the lazy lighting/supplication search. so after your quick search today maybe check out this show 01-08-78 Golden Hall San Diego. Jerry apparently had laryngitis, so it's an all Bobby show, which take that as you want (insert debate here), the show must go on. the Charlie Miller soundboard is a great recording, Phil is high up in the mix, and maybe since Jerry couldn't sing he really is on with the guitar. an interesting and really great show worth a listen. thanks archives. donate if you can so much great stuff.
ok carry on

hornsy, you’re right about 1/8/78. That’s a fun show to listen to - Jerry seems to make up for not being able to sing with some killer playing. Jan/Feb ‘78 is full of great shows.

I've seen some similar sets when Jerry had laryngitis but those included at least a few Jerry songs. This one truly is a Bobby only show. Will give it a listen.

Than playin the 30 Days listening to Tennessee
Very nice versions of each treat.
Almost like dessert after Thanksgiving.
Time I go wandering the land outside the stores. My wife is dragging me to Black Friday shopping.
But I wasn’t born to be a bachelor, so I'm eager to obey.
Honey, come quick with the Visa Card.
Happy Friday High Day all!

Mind your commas and arrows, and this one gets narrowed down rather quickly.

Super clear audio on this. Site and matching source. Looks like rest of show is interesting too. A lob pitch offering of 3 songs is ok on this day. First heard Esau on a show I recorded off of the radio (not this one here today). Always liked that weaving of words. Drummers sometimes would have some thunder in the intro. Making a little laid back first set tune interesting rhythmically. I bought In The Dark on cassette when it came out and that format included Esau, only way you could get a studio version of that song at the time. Good ol cassettes!

Yeah ESAU was used as a bonus track on the cassette of IN THE DARK and as the B-side for the Touch Of Grey single. They played it at my 1st 3 shows in 87. : )

The big city fave venue of the GD near me would often get Esau and 900 Tons and some other "then new songs" in the setlists for those 80s years. Crowd really responded to them.

I first saw Esau on 3/29, 3/30 and 3/31 at The Fox-Warfield Theater on Market Street for the first Rex Foundation Benefit shows. Tickets were face $25, back when normally they were in the $13.50 range. Steve Marcus was a new GDTOO employee and these were the first mail order shows if you don't count the 1980 Warfield 15 night run. They played Esau all three nights, but otherwise then only other duplicate over the three night run was Little Red Rooster. These were the last Warfield shows played by GD, but of course, JGB and later PL&F played there many times. I remember the warm wine colored velvet wallpaper, the gold leaf ornate deco ala the 1920's, and it was tiny, holding about 2,300, and in the hallways were photos from the late 1960's onward of the SF scene. Between shows we went to 710 Ashbury, and took photos sitting on the famed steps, and visited The Psychedelic Shop, The Haight Ashbury Free Medical Clinic, and wondered about Golden Gate Park. Like kids in a candy store on a dreamy spring run in the Bay area.

close friend was lucky to see this and among the many happy memories was a remarkably steady stream of party favors being passed through the crowd. one of 2 excellent, off-the-radar, shows there.

They know when I have things to do. I was hoping for a deep dive to keep me out of the shopping pits with my wife. No such luck.
