    Just wasted another half hour of my life so this lame ass web site could eat my post and tell me I’m “not authorized”? WTF?

    Ha.. love it.

    I'm a convert to the after dead bands. I think I've written about this before here.. but after ignoring it for more than a decade.. I saw Phil by coincidence on Halloween in 2007 and kicked myself in the ass for being such an arrogant snob about my dead life. First, it was a good show, second.. I had so much fun. I was working in NYC and got off the subway to a complete circus in full swing, scored a ticket at cost still wearing my work garb, PC over my shoulder and the rest unfolded rather nicely. What a blast.. I get that people don't like or won't like D&C, but I think they are good.. listen to Oteil sing Comes a Time / China Doll or Chimenti throw out these incredible fills in Eyes of the World.. and yes, Help/Slip!/Franks is awesome. As much crap as people give Mayer, he is talented and capable. My favorite meme sent to me this week by someone here actually.. was of Chumlee wearing a steelie knit hat telling the Pawn Shop owner guy he wants to see Garcia on Acid.. and the reply.. the best I get you for that is Mayer and Advil.

    So I finished 4/1/91 this morning, a great little show.. I love Bruce in these years, but I think they kept Vince in a box. I would have liked to see him play piano more and synth less. As we rode down to Fenario....

    Anyway... I will start 10/31 later today and I have marked my Calendar on 9/24/2022 to start all those great shows Oroborous picked out. Really looking forward to them. :D

    10.27.91 is bittersweet....

    ....first show since Bill Graham died. Honored him by opening with Sugar Magnolia, which I believe was one of his favorite Dead songs.

    God Bless the Weirwolf - Dead and Co - Wrigley

    not potdwd but thought I'd share some outer world stuff. last week had to journey back to the Midwest for a family "event" - first time traveling like that since the beginning of the plague times. a solemn event at the center but good to see us together and to see family friends again in some cases after many years. and by complete coincidence Dead and Co. was at Wrigley during that time. wasn't originally planning on going but in the end that would have been a true mark of losing my "alleged" mind and with great urging from my brothers, the younger brother scored some tickets. vax card or neg. test for entry. so glad we made it. not quite as carefree as the old days but boy oh boy did i need some of what they were dishing up. first night was a weather night - lots of rain and lightning delaying the show and cutting the 1st set short. second night was picture perfect early fall evening. lots of great tunes both nights - gotta run to work so won't get into a detailed breakdown now - you can find the set lists on line. Scarlet > Deal> Fire and Dew 1st night with Ripple encore. better seats night 2 - Set II was freaking awesome end to end. China > Rider, Estimated > Eyes, Milestones out of space, into Days Between > Help > Slip > Frank. I get choked up just thinking about it.
    Drove both there and back, old school, didn't sleep in a cave in the hills but did crash out for a couple hours at the museum in Eagle at 3am on my way back.

    Take care everyone. Hold your loved ones close in your heart.

    Onward!!

    I don't want to miss another OB pick, so either of those 81 shows sounds good to me.

    Sorry...

    But I’m riding the rails of a crazy train!
    Did second set of 3/14/81 first thing, decent, but not perhaps 81 Hot?
    Then I hit 9/24/91✔️, good show, but perhaps overall a step behind the previous shows, even with the set list eye candy?

    Okay, I’m moving onto 10/27/91 as that looks fun!
    Maaaaaayyybeee, I can round back to the 3/14 first set I inadvertently missed and got faked out with the Bama/GSET start, and pick up the DHB Hat Trick!
    Aaaaaahahaahhaaaaahhaaa (cue the Ozzy laugh).....
    ONWARD!

    Mañana: looking at some combination of 3/20/81, DP 17 9/25/91, and 9/26/91, ASAP anyway....
    Hoping to tag Spring Europe 81, and at least the rest of Boston 91,...if not October Oakland 91, before the new box arrives.

    Whoa, 10/27 off to a strong start...can they sustain it?

    Take your pick

    4-1-91
    10-31-91

    They both have a Dark Star.

    Not sure if either of those has already been a pick.

    10-27-91 is also nice with Carlos joining.

    91 (and 90 and 89)

    Feel free to pick one. 91 is hot here lately..

    I have to say.. I was pretty blind to the later years (post 91) until 30 trips came out. Many of the years people don't often recommend shine in that box. 86, 92, 93 and 94 come to mind. You just gotta poke around.

    That being said, 89 through 91 are strong years to these ears. Your pick Cone Kid.

    I’ve been doing 91

    And 89 and 90.

    A few weeks ago I loaded a micro SDXC card for one of my music players with non-commercially released shows from 89-92 and have been working on those at home (commercial releases in the car).

    Been hitting up September 91 a lot this month.
    Did the Sixtus Special H/S/Fire last night. I had that show on cassette and played it a lot back then.
    Just fired up 9/22 which I also had on cassette.
    Notice during tuning at the start of the show Bruce fires off a quick little piano part from Quadrophenia.

    Yes, Fall 91 has lots to offer as far as future Box Set possibilities of complete runs.
    MSG
    Garden
    Oakland
    Yes, they all need to be Normanized and released.

    But, which one first?

    Oakland, because 9/10 and 9/25 have already been released.

    All Good Brohiems!

    Just teasing...I’m sometimes as bad/good lol as ole PF tossing out all kinds of things besides the chosen picks etc. Never would I expect anyone to follow me down all the rabbit holes I try en sniff out.
    I just toss stuff out there and if it sticks cool, if not, cool lol...

    7/7 I recall was one of those extracurricular shows and all that matters is someone else enjoyed it!

    So, Baaaaassssstin 91.
    Ooohhhh, Danny boy the pipes are calling! Or whatever ? (Don’t think it’s Shenandoah) their noodling on before set 2 on 9/21, aaaaannnd JG quickly recalls it in space but ya have to be paying attention...also some obvious classical music references but I’m not versed enough to know what it was?
    9/20/91✔️
    9/21/91✔️These shows are SOLID! Good sheet mon, going to move onto 9/22 in un momento...
    Figured Id work through to DP 17, and THAT next night (9/26) being the big carrot. Dave has 9/26 on that original wish list of his, and if it’s as good as these, only better cause of the big dogs in the list, well I say bring it!
    But I’m getting ahead of myself lol,
    ONWARD!

    Going full 91/81 (Europe March 81 anyone 3/14 - 3/28?) to fully cleanse after so much 71 earlier this year...so I’ll be ready for both the box, and to jump on the ole Doc 71 express again when it leaves the station, with hopefully conductor Strider to help us along...

    EDIT: 9/22/91✔️Wow, this run is awesome!

....between Four Winds and myself. Middle of TN Jed. I'm staring straight at that Morning Dew like a headlight on a northbound train.

What a release Jim, thanks for this pick. I am with Daverock on this one, might be one of the best releases.

I shied away from this one forever, because it was not a complete show. What a huge mistake that was.

Sound quality is A++. If Dave's 34 sounds anything like this we are in for a huge treat.

The China Rider is awesome. Two unreal Eyes. Yes, That Loose Lucy is really good. How about that Morning Dew. WRS, Truckin! All top notch stuff.
To the great soul that turned me on to this release, this one is for you!

Tommorow, we hit up FourWinds pick, From Egypt with Love!

Be well folks!

....features an If I Had The World To Give. A top five song that I wish they played more often. The others?
Gentlemen, Start Your Engines (saw one and it was pretty cool)
Brother Esau (never saw one)
Built To Last (tough lyrics. I get it. Saw two)
Clementine (nada)
France (saw three. In dreams).
Dead & Co brought back World To Give. And they were pretty nice.

On the waterproof shuffle, WOS Road Trips. Both shows are excellent as is the sound. 6/16 highlights for me are China>Rider (powerful), Race is On (one of the better versions, sometimes in these electric versions the vocals are all over the place.. this one is a ok), a monster Eyes (more on this later) and nice Big River and a monster PITB.

Excellent

But 6/18 delivers the goods. One of the all-time Eyes>China Dolls. The performance and transition flawless, poweful and seamless. A jazz masterpiece. I think the version on the GD Movie (10/19?) is more popular and certainly sounds better.. but on the movie soundtrack, they cut and edited out one of the jams. I think the transition from 6/18 is better, and it's my favorite. Not a wasted note or chord, everything on purpose and just exactly right. but I am biased. A high water mark.

WRSuite, TOO, I Know It's a Sin, Stella Blue, and perhaps the best Morning Dew of the period rounds out the release. There is a bit of mayhem but it works.. just be patient. I have gotten used to the I know it's a Sin jam and when I listen to it.. I fill in the words. Powerful stuff. A potent part of the set.

Too bad it's a chop job, but it's a great release.. also, to my ears, this was the show where Jeffrey Norman went from Jeffrey the Grey to Jeffrey the White. This was about the period when he really stepped up his game to wizard status. This sounds (to me) head and antlers above the best copies on the archive. Working directly from the Master Reels and by this point in his career having acquired quite the bag of tricks makes a big difference.

That's all I have. Also.. I was remiss last night asking for more time for the new 74 release. There is a whole other place for that on the Dave's Picks thread. We should keep this the way it is. I like the idea of 5/2/70 on it's birthday and I hope someone brings up the 5/15/70 road trips as well.

Edit: Thank goodness they deemed whitewater kayaking as an acceptable social distance sport.. but the shuttles in the truck are a bit taboo.. but not if you bike the shuttle, which just gives you a little extra alone time to grove to the GD.

On it for Saturday. Good idea Strider, Jim and Vguy.

Vguy, interesting you bring up "If I had the world to give", I used to sing this song to my daughter when she was really young.

Okay, never thought I would post that but you brought it up.

If I had the world to give, I'd give it to you
Long as you live, would you let it fall, or hold it all in your arms?
If I had a song to sing, I'd sing it to you
As long as you live, lullaby or maybe a plain serenade
Wouldn't you laugh, dance, and cry or be afraid at the change you made
I may not have the world to give to you
But maybe I have a tune or two
Only if you let me be your world
Could I ever give this world to you
But I will give what love I have to give,
I will give what love I have to give,
I will give what love I have to give, long as I live.
If I had a star to give, I'd give it to you
Long as you live, would you have the time
To watch it shine, watch it shine
Or ask for the moon and heaven too? I'd give it to you.
Well maybe I've got no star to spare, or anything fine or even rare,
Only if you let me be your world, could I ever give this world to you.
Could I ever give this world to you....
....why they only played this live four or five times is beyond me. The lyrics remind me of Attics Of My Life. Which, incidentally, is a song I sung for my son when he was really young.
They brought that one back, to much rejoicing.

A good time to check the mail. Got a package from Bolo24, CIA.

Gonna let it sit for the required time.. just in case it self destructs or something.

What a hoot. Thanks Bolo.

For what it's worth.. to wide awake to sleep.. youtube is serenading me with the acoustic set of 10/31/80. Works for me.

You ever listen to the 10/17/78 version that is not on the bonus disc. If you haven't during space right before If I had the World to Give, you can hear a woman say to Jerry "I want to take banjo lessons" He responds that he doesn't do that anymore... bob t

Winterland October 1978

Can any one or TPTB tell me why we can't get all 5 shows released like June '76 box??

Thanks.

PS, Wouldn't be funny if this was the fall box set to be released Oct 6 according to LMG.

Bob T, I didn't make it to this show, I went to the shows on Oct 20 and 21. My brotther told me about this incident with the girl and the banjo lessons. Garcia used to give banjo lessons when he worked at Swain's House of Music down in Palo Alto, my brother knows a couple of guys who took banjo lessons from Garcia back in the early 60s.

I don't teach anymore..

How cool is that? Nice call Bob T and cool story BTK!

WOS Rocked me yesterday, both 6/16 & 6/18 were so great to hear again.
I am fully pumped now for the Jai-Alai Fronton Release.
Can't Wait and well executed stoke you good pickers you.

Waited until later in the day, to get the full effect, and it was wonderful.

The Eyes > China Doll & WRS > TOO > It's A Sin > Stella is such an incredible trip to take.

And having read your posts I knew what was coming all day, and the magic part, even with that and having heard the show many times in the past, I couldn't wait and was excited when they broke into Morning Dew and it is EPIC, better than I'd remembered.

And that's what this trip is all about!!

6/18/74 - Eyes, WRS & Morning Dew up there with best evers.

Alright set the time machine for Winterland October 1978 you say?!?!

Right away!

Had to start with If I Had The World To Give after that sweet serenade last night courtesy of you all.

JIMINMD - What's in the box?

It's gonna be a good day!

I too opted for the full 10/21/78 show - on "Roses" now, and I have enjoyed this show so far, save for Bobby's slide playing during "Sugaree" and "Stagger Lee." My copy of this show (the Miller one that Vguy posted,) sounds pretty darn good.

I know that 5/2/70 DiP 8 is on tap for it's 50th anniversary Saturday, but what about tomorrow? May I suggest DiP 5 - 12/26/79, one of my personal favorite picks, for Friday's listen?

Of course, I think a number of folks should be receiving DaP34 tomorrow... but if not...

I have the complete shows on a HD but they aren’t loaded on the microSDXC card that is currently in my music player.
So, chop job it was.
Yes, definitely time for the whole run to be Plangentized, Normanized, and packed up in a nice little Box that fits on a shelf.

I didn’t initially go for RT because I wanted complete shows, not chop jobs. Probably the wrong choice because I missed out on the bonus disc which I believe allows you to reassemble a complete 10-21 set2.
But, all that can be remedied with the release of a Winterland Oct. 78 Box. Bring it on Dave.

Now I’ve ventured into torrent territory and am listening to 3-25-83 148801.Clugston.
Sound quality is not terrible, but the cymbals are a bit too loud.

Definitely a different feel than our listen yesterday with the wonderful RT2.3.

Sound quality is mediocre at best and I agree the patches are rough.

Does anyone have a tracking arrival date for tomorrow for Dave's #34.

Mine still is saying label created.

Agreed! Not the same high as yesterdays '74 trip.. But The Other One is ripping and has a moment of IT for sure.

Actually having listened again, I'm surprised that this got released with the number of patches that were required. I'm not holding my breath on a rerelease.. there's so much other stuff in that there Vault.

Fun to revisit.

12/26/79 tomorrow you say? So Be It!

I might have to dig in to some 5/1/70 for it's 50th as well.

But I wasn’t into chop jobs.
I did start ordering when full shows started coming and I got those bonus discs.

I also didn’t order Rockin’ The Rhein, and missed out on that bonus disc. Still don’t know why I didn’t order it.

....just wrapped up. 6.8 goonie birds out of 10. Mojo working goes on a little too long, but everything after that was fire. Very nice Must have Been The Roses. Moving onto an anniversary of a show i attended. Irvine Meadows 4.30.89. Box Of Rain, Iko to open the second set.

Luckily we have a new C. M. audience release so there is a better patch for the Stella Blue and some other small patches but, on a bad note the taper only got a partial set 1 so no new patch for Sugaree which sucks.

Ollin> Promised, Sugaree, Ramble On, Passenger, LLR, all good! Stagger- Miracle brings it down.

Bertha, Good Love it's back, MHBTR sweet, Estimated blowing the roof off! He's Gone okay, this show kinda goes up and down. Mojo starts out nice, TOO - Stella - Sugar Mag all good. I got them U.S. Blues.

I think I blew or singed a voice coil in the mid-range speaker yesterday. I got a Emotive xpa-2 amp 70lb monster (all most gave the Fedex guy a hernia). Hard to find speakers that this thing can't blow out. Thinking of going with Airmotiv T2+ loudspeaker anyone familiar with these speakers?

You might just have a better version than the two I have. It seems to be one or two steps closer to the master reel and my best, although it's a soundboard, has just a touch of hiss.

Shot you a message..

If you could compare All I Ever Wanted from yours to this..

Along with 8/13/75 this made me a dead head... I love this version so much.... I use to listen to it every day in college before I started getting tapes... bob t.... P.S. i am excited to hear Donna tonight!!! bob t

Cool to hear your story re: Wharf Rat & 8/13/75

Definitely have some tunes like that, first Dead album I got was WALSTIB from the ole Columbia Records and Tapes club, 11 Albums for a Penny!

Anything from that album takes me back but in particular Born Cross-Eyed and that Europe '72 Jack Straw.

Despite heavy rotation in bootleg circles, never heard 8/13/75 until the Dead released One From The Vault.
But I was stoked when I did get it.

And I totally forgot about Donna tonight! She's a kick, thanks for the flash:)

How's 12/26/79 going everyone? I had to get some 50 year old 5/1/70 in my ear hole.
