My Oh My! 91 is GETTING HOT!
This 91 show is a real gem! Thanks for posting the link VGUY, I don't have Boxilla, but this Matrix sounds sweet!
Wrapping up Set 1 now! That Cassidy got DEEP! High Time was another highlight, but this has been an overall excellent listen!
Set II of Nashville yesterday went about as I expected. I enjoyed the energy of the LL>Supp opener, I'm always a sucker for Must Have Been the Roses, and then I admit I got a little lost in the Estimated jam, which does seem to just meander around. The Eyes is speedy, which is not my favorite type, but it was ok, then Drums, which in 78 is almost always too long, NFA, Wharf Rat (late set highlight) Sugar Mags, OMSN - all fine versions, but not too exciting. I think I do like this pick slightly more than DaP7 - Normal, but I agree with GOGD, it was nice to dust this one off, but I think it'll get popped back on the shelf for a while.
Also, Good Ole - I am planning on checking out that 4/22/77 show - I just DL'd it and I think I will cue it up after DiP12, though I know that one so well I may just pop in for some highlights (of which there are MANY!)
Loving this new board! Good vibes all around!
Gotta go - they just opened set II with Help On the Way!
I can’t come down...
...er, a, I can’t keep up! The posts, the POTDs, pant, pant, this is becoming like a job....so I’ve had to miss a few. That’s ok, I didn’t need to hear some of those.
Did dig the JGB live, always a favorite. Top shelf all the way; Audio, tunes, and the band is definetly peak period.
DPs 12: yeah, haven’t heard this one much, prolly too much other competing new stuff to constantly chase? But I’ve always loved this one. I don’t necessarily mind some of the chopped picks when their sort of sequential and/or make sense flow wise. Don’t dig the “cut up” method.
9/10/91: this will be next fo shure, whenever that might be! I might be a couple a few Mississippi Halfsteps behind, but I’m with ya! Rock on folks!
Standing on the Moon...
... God, I love this song.
Engraved on my wedding ring - "I'd rather be with you."
EDIT: What an overall wonderful show! Great pick! What's on for tomorrow?

FOURWINDSBLOW picks 10/22/71 & 10/21 Filler - Gonna Jam That
Also Mentioned: 04/29/80 - The Famous “Fixable Foot” show! (Wink, wink, nod, nod BOLO & Haha @Zomby Wolf)
Recorded by none other than famous Taper Joani Walker.
I’ve got a lot of tapes with her name on it as the source, not just the shows she recorded, but lots of 1st Generation SBDs!
It’s an honor to spin one of her recordings this morning.
And if this Jack Straw is any example of where this show goes… hold on to your hat!! WOW!
You’ve done it again people, another good day to listen to the Dead:)
Re: Didn't show your work...
Didn't show your work, …… No Prize For You!
Now that I see the show, the clues were so obvious. Fixable Foot. Fixable, seven letters, 4/29/80 was the seventh performance of 1980
01/13/80- Oakland Coliseum Arena - Oakland, CA
03/30/80- Capitol Theater - Passaic, NJ
03/31/80- Capitol Theater - Passaic, NJ
04/01/80- Capitol Theater - Passaic, NJ
04/05/80- NBC Studios - New York City, NY
04/28/80- Boutwell Auditorium - Birmingham, AL
04/29/80- Fox Theater - Atlanta, GA
Foot. This involves a little history of the Fox Theatre. You see, when the theatre was built, the owners also purchased the “Mighty Mo”, the 3,622-pipe Möller organ or Foot Organ, "that remains the largest Möller theatre organ in the world even today. "
So simple.. of course, the fixable foot show. I can't believe we missed this. I am going out to amazon right now and ordering some of those processed from jellyfish memory enhancement pills. This sheltering in place stuff is making us all weak.
Have a good day all.
Jack Straw ~ Sugaree ~ Cassidy ~ Dupree's Diamond Blues
~ 4.23.84 ~ Uncle John's Band
I'm going with the Fox 4.29.80 first per bolos rec....
....and I would never have guessed that as being the answer in a million years. Jellyfish pills it is.
/ˌesəˈterik/ - adjective
1. intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest.
Wow... That's amazing.
BOLO24.. @JIMINMD should get some kind of consolation prize?
Reading that made my morning.
So impressed.. and this Fox 4/29/80 show is good!
I think Jerry partied on the set break though, he seems to have forgotten some of the words...
but he still knows how to play and PITB Jam is super Cool sounding!
Thanks @JIMINMD for showing me how it's done!
9/10/91 and 6/28/74
9/10 a elegant show played very loud,
6/28 a rockin' show played very loud.
Hold on, we already listened to 10-21,22-71
April 13, 2020 - 10:41pm#219
Dave's 3 - Next Pick 10/22/71
you won't regret this listen
re. we already listened to 10-21,22-71
Yes you are right! I must have went out for supplies that day, I missed that one.
Well anyway it was great.
I’m finally getting around to 9-10-83
Listened to the first few songs last night. That MNS starts off clunky but then really picks up. From what I heard last night it sounds more like an 84 than an 83. Will finish the show today.
While listening last night I remembered that a few days earlier I realized that I have video of that show. It’s partial and includes a few songs from 9/4. It’s a VTS folder which is used for burning DVD-R’s, but the file can also be mounted on a computer desktop and viewed that way.
If anyone wants a copy let me know, I already uploaded it to Google Drive.
How about Dap 24 8/25/72
This was another show I had in mind. Is it okay if we do this instead or for tomorrow?
I think I remember this show was pretty good.
ps. Jeez check out Phil on Bird Song don't know if I ever heard it played like that.
Maybe I had to much too fast.

I’m listening to 10/22/71 now, as I don’t think I jumped on this thread until around 4/15 ish.. yeah the Days & the Dead are starting to blend together… it's the supplies!
Hey, you know what?....
....Don't Ease as a second set opener is pretty fun!! Passenger kicked ass!
8.25.72 for Saturday sounds grate. It even features a OMSN!!! Just exactly perfecto!
GOGD....Daves 15 was 4.22.78 not 77.
Jim's answer is better - that took some work (and a slightly unhinged thought process - I like that!). I agree, he deserves a consolation prize, just for including the umlaut in Möller! Jim - send me your address and I'll shoot something your way.
OK, here's the original solution. The only two-word anagram for Fixable Foot that uses all the letters is Lifeboat Fox. A quick Google search would show that Oscar-nominated "Lifeboat" was the only film made for 20th Century Fox by Alfred Joseph Hitchcock. And, of course, Sir Hitchcock met his demise on April 29, 1980. But not at Atlanta's Fox Theater - he left in disgust after Jerry had that major brain fart during Terrapin Station!
RE: Answer, Jack Straw & Don't Ease
Bolo24 - Amazing & Funny in one post.. Nice Work!
VGuy72 - Gotta Love a Good Editor!! Thank you, Edit made.
My thoughts on Don't Ease & Passenger Exactly!
BTW Nice work keeping up on the Avatars, I'm enjoying that. Well Done
FOURWINDSBLOW - I think that Jack Straw is ultimately the best song played that night, SMOKER!
And Nice Pick... Anything '72 will do..
Lemieux sounded like '72 is essentially his favorite year, I mean I'm reading between the lines in his comments, but yeah.. that's what it sounded like.
And this 10/22/71 is sounding super GOOD, I love a '71 Black Peter, might be my favorite year for that song.. not sure about that.
This is fun you guys!
Sorry was not trying yo ignore you brother. Great pick!
@ FourWinds - Today's Pick
No harm, no foul, no worries :) Dave's 3 is one of my favorite of the series!
I really tried to get Bolo's game, but after seeing the rationale, I was not on the same plane of reasoning. Would have never gone the Hitchcock direction. I did originally get Fox Theater though!
So, is Bolo's "Fixable Foot" show, 4/29/80, today's pick?
Edit: It looks like the answer to my question is "yes." Firing it up now! Happy Friday, DeadLand!
RE: That's Otis
Ditto on FOURWINDSBLOWS post
I think you said it perfectly yesterday -
Loving this new board! Good vibes all around!
And I gave special attention to SOTM yesterday in your honor :)
i love you bolo....
....but you are savage sometimes with these contests. (Lifeboat is a great movie btw). 4.29.80 is the pick of the day. I missed the Dave's 3 pick, so that will be next so i can ketchup.
Dave gets paid to do this.
My lame guesses at bolos contest...
laguna seca 5.9.87. Touch of grey video shot that night. Dog took drummers leg/foot. Roadie put it back.
That was my first one.
Googled fixable foot. Brought me to club feet. A foot is 12 inches. Club Twelve. A non-profit. Which happens to reside in San Antonio, Texas. San Antonio Civic Auditorium. 11.12.71.
That was my second one. I, apparently, need to think outside the box (of rain) more often for these.
RE: Just Think
Mind Blown... Just Think!
Wow... I do it for free, I'd def do it for money.. but even BETTER!
@VGUY72, @OTIS @FOURWINDSBLOW, etc.. Dave's 3 is the SICK!
Early Comes A Time.. so good, extra verses, Jerry's reading of it, gots to be my favorite year for that song. So much good on this here release..
I'm glad this came on today cause it sounds just exactly perfect!
My 1st was 10/29/85 - Anagrams of Fox (Theater) and TOO - this show is at the Fox, has an Other One, and a Brokedown Palace (ref. something "fixable.") Also, the first set was cut short due to technical difficulties, another "fixable" problem.
Second guess was Lyceum 5/26/72 - It is the show that TOO was taken from to make-up the "Epilogue/Prelude" sections of the original E72 Lp, which prominently features a foot in need of fixing on the cover. I went this way after Bolo's comment that I needed to "go a little bit further" than I had before, so I went across the Atlantic.
Now I see that both guesses were woefully simple. Still, a fun game!
As to today's show - this raging Passenger is a perfect follow-up to that gorgeous Peggy-O! Another day, another great pick!
@GOGD RE: Dave's 3
Just wait til' you get to the "Dark Star>Sitting On Top of the World> Dark Star>Bobby McGee"! One of the best segments of any Dave's Pick so far, in my (very) humble opinion.
Glad you're digging on it! Forensic Doc's love of 71 inspired me to check it out more, and now it is one of my favorite years for the band.
Can't wait, 10/22 Rocked!
Early Keith TIFTOO Kills.. It's unreal that he'd just joined the band.
Hitting up 10/21 after lunch, can't wait!
'71 is special
One of my first bootlegs was 4/29/71, I played it to death.
When I got back into collecting Dead after a long break, I got a hold of that Houseboat RT release and the China > Rider brought tears to my eyes as I realized what I'd been missing.
It's not my go to year cuz there's just so many other great years.. but it'll always be special to me!
What a Year, What a Show, What a Band!
4.29.80's post Space....
....i think i speak for all of us that we would have all been a sweaty mess. Nice Playin' jam in that second set too. I give this show 7.2 goonie birds out of 10. (if you went to shows in '88-'89, you know what i mean).
I got a Goonie Bird at my first show in '86.. It was totally Goonie, I wasn't sure if what I was seeing was real or not.
I agree.. that Bertha is full on!
Man, seeing a show. Those were the days.
I think it's a young persons game, but I was young and dug it!
My first show was in 1986 too!!....
....4.13.86. Irvine Meadows.
@VGUY72 - First Shows
You beat me by 2 1/2 months, went to Riverbend 6/30/86 shortly after my 16th birthday:)
I remember going into the place it looked like an amusement park or something, again I was having trouble trusting what I was seeing, it was super hot and there was tie-dye everywhere and that goonie bird..
I can't remember a lot of things, but I've got some memories from that day that I always smile about.
There was a running dialogue all day I kept picking up on. It went something like:
Man it's Hot Out, You got your ticket?, It's Gonna Be a Good Show.. Man it's Hot Out, You Got your ticket? It's Gonna Be a Good Show..
I'd check my pockets every time. It's funny what you remember.
EDIT: Supplication Jam > Let It Grow!! You lucky Dog You!
I was at this show, soundboard was taking up our reserved seats so they pulled out some nice padded chairs and put us right at the soundboard. I would have never guessed this was the pick. 2 word anagram, was that part of the clue? Missed that. What I remember (almost 40 years now) about this show was the Jack Straw opener, always loved a Jack Straw opener, got the crowd into it right off, the Passenger being really good, but I'm bias, I've always loved that tune. The second set with Don't ease as the opener, we all looked at each other and went "odd", the Lost Sailor>Saint being very nice. Of course the most remembered part was the awesomeness of the Fox Theatre itself, what a beautiful place and the planetarium ...wow, the sun went down the band came on, it got dark, the stars came out and we went to space and the band played on as the dawn approached, all inside that beautiful theatre. I do believe it is the nicest venue I have ever seen a band at, early 20th century decor, that carpet and those drapes, those bathrooms with the attendant, just so cool. Maybe not the best dead show, but I will never forget it. I've got the ticket stub around here somewhere, sparkles on the Grateful Dead lettering, if I find it, I'll post a pic of it.
