    Yep, good sheep Mon! I’m not sure I have quite the same level of enthusiasm as you, but that’s nit picking personal taste BS. Like I liked, but perhaps not 5 star liked (no offense intended).
    We should definitely do Providence, but would like to please wait until Monday or Tuesday so I can listen at work if that’s ok? Hoping to get some stereo time in this WE so would like something more high fidelity. Perhaps I should hit that Wooooooster show? Or…? Maybe hit another E72 Dark Star disc, think I left off on 5/7? Yeah, I’ll probably graze a little rather than trying to cram whole shows in?

    Stay cool up there DV, paddle on Jimmy, good vibes to all,
    Be well, play dead!

    PS, maybe Doc will give us another history lesson during the week?

    11/1/79

    Hey OB, glad you are digging these shows. I mean, I think these are so good, five dancing bears. Sound quality is fantastic. Nice Jack Straw opener. Really good Peggy O, Jerry nails it. Easy to Love you. The epic Scarlet Fire is a fun ride. Terrapin, Playing, what a combo.
    Okay good to hear you are moving to 11/2/ OB, I was waiting on that but will keep it going and don't forget Providence on 11/4. I would think Bluecrow would enjoy these shows and Jim.
    Better yet box all these shows up and they will fly off the shelf.

    Okay back to more 79.

    oh yea, it was 30 Trips not a Dickus Pickus. My bad.. still, I am pretty sure it only had one listen and was fun to revisit.

    Ended up hitting the Spectrum 83 Dave's Picks. I might be starting to get this period out of my system.

    11/2/79 etc

    Ooopps, sorry Jim, forgot about Boxilla Wooooster show? Thought maybe you were losing it, but once again it’s me who’s ahem, “confused” “damn kids, get off my lawn” but Pedro, those aren’t kids, their prairie dogs!
    I need to hit that one, (10/21/83) but since I’m at work I’m gonna keep on the DV 79 train and finish the last of these Nassau shows from 11/2/79.
    Perhaps 11/1 was a bit more consistent, but hard to tell when not back to back listening etc? 10/31 was perhaps a bit more fun? But on 11/1 loved the jam outta Scarlet, Fire, Playing etc.?
    Good shows so looking forward to this last one.
    Happy Friday peoples, remember to keep the blue side up!

    Wooooster? Ya mean Harshford?
    Mexican dirt weed. Hey, that’s about all we could get BITD.
    But hey, that’s what double albums were for, cleaning your weed! My original go to was Skullfuck which still has the stains to prove it lol. Until recently, my vinyl was still at my folks. One time after decades of them sitting there, I happened to check em out and lol, there was still a little left in the bottom!

    77 and 79

    Enjoyed 10/12/77 Texas. Old transfer that dates back to 2004. I would have to think an upgrade will come out at some point. Spring 77 of course gets al the accolades, but you got to love fall 77. It seems to rock a little more, not as precise and we get the return of Truckin, Casey Jones, Dire Wolf, Dupree's and eventually China Rider in December. If you haven't listened to 10/2/77, it is worth checking out, I think we hit this one at some point last year. I hope it becomes a future pick. Casey Jones opener is so good.

    Thinking of continuing the 79 Nassau Run, with 11/1/79. This is the show with the crazy Scarlet Fire that appears as hidden tracks on Dick's 13.

    Good to hear things are progressing Jim. Hope that continues.

    The Cuervo Gold

    The Fine Colombian...

    Fast forward 50 years.. Cuervo is now the tequila with a nose that reminds you of the last time you puked after drinking it and Colombian was the last weed people smoked that commonly was packed with seeds and stems and sometimes twine that held the bales together (none of which are good to smoke).

    Does anyone remember paraquat?

    My how times have changed.

    As much as we like to complain, you gotta admit we have it pretty good. Betty boards, (almost) legal, high quality weed with zero chance of seeds, stems and nylon twine. You get a computer read of what's in it and the concentration. Edibles are a plenty.. and we get some ridiculous amount of cleaned up, fully restored, amazing GD music each and every year.

    Spent a good bit of time in Canyonlands and Needles too. Don't overlook Needles in SD and Needles in Ca also. Cool places, all good. Some really mind bending rock climbs in Needles SD. Holy cow.. ah to be young again.....

    Been gone a bit, having a bit of a difficult week but things are progressing. I had to leave in a hurry and just had time to grab podzilla before I left. So I had to hit stuff that I had either already converted or officially released stuff. I did not have 10/31/83 or Santa Fe.. so I hit Boise and Worcester from 83 and kept the party going with the Spectrum 84, all Dave's or Dicks Picks, all high energy stuff. Itch scratched, the only thing missing was some 1984 cocaine which I probably have not done since 1984 - nasty stuff, not a fan but I love high octane GD when the mood suites me. I might not have listened to the Dicks Picks from Worcester since the month it was released. It was great but man.. you cannot unhear that snare drum. Philly and Boise are a big step up (although Worcester was on fire). It was all good.

    ....but now I have more ketchup to do.

    Had a big family health issue to contend with.. all are recovering, albeit slowly and there is some loss of function but I am calling it a win with another month or two of rehab to contend with. Still.. JimInMD sighing a big sigh of relief. They made it to the other side.

    That's all I have.. I tried pretty hard to keep up here but I had a handicap. I will hit Marin and Santa Fe this week. I hope you guys won't wind a belated reply.

    The Maze District

    Thanks Oro. Appreciate it. Here's to the Weasel as well.
    Guy from Gunnison BITD (Les Lloyd?) was an amazing solo hiker who had done a lot of time in The Maze and had a map marking all the springs where water could be found. I believe he did a lot of climbs there too. I too have not gone there. Takes some commitment that I certainly lack now. I do have a copy of that wall sized map of his though. 5ft.x 4ft. topo 1: 62,500 Canyonlands and Vicinity, Utah 1968. I wonder if they even print those big boys now. Made a great college wall hanging under the filtered light from an Indian cotton tapestry hanging from the ceiling. I can almost smell the Columbian.
    Cheers

    Trucking

    Yep, the 83 was ok, funky sound, mostly really high end and on Bobs vocal the Eaton version?
    Cool trucking, but your really gonna love Truckin from that 77 show. Whole shows good, but that last section after drums is stellar! The 87 was good, especially the first set, but it’s sloppier than I recall?

    Cool story about Canyon lands. Been there a few times and the Needles, think we off roaded to some remote Native sites? Awesome trip! Never been to the Maze though.

    Four winds blow to an old buddy that we got into plenty of mischief and a few Dead shows together BITD.
    Unfortunately he had issues that manifested over the years and he was not living a good life. Supposedly he passed in his sleep. Hopefully he has peace now. Here’s to The Weasel!

Cool! This is a pick that I have not spun since its release. I am not a huge fan of 78 in general (though the July Box is great,) but I remember thinking that this one was better than I was expecting. Anyway, I am looking forward to diving in and giving it some fresh ears! If I recall, I preferred the 1st set to the 2nd on this one, but I'll reassess today.

BOLO - I threw my (most likely erroneous) hat in the ring and sent you a PM.

Peace

I've never heard that before! That made a really nice warm-up for the day, making coffee, and watching the sun come out listen! Thank you! I especially loved the "Gomorrah" - what a gorgeous tune and what a great version!

Peace

GRATEFULGAL7277 - Thanks for suggesting Jerry's only solo acoustic show! I plan to give that a spin today for sure.

Bootleg notes.. A lone voice in the crowd shouts out "Maestro" and that about sums it up!

Supposedly Jerry was terrified and never did it again, the show fills a nice gap in a hot Spring '82 GD tour.. Bob & Jerry would play Letterman together 3 nights later. Love this stuff!

I'm with OTIS - '78 can run pretty hot or cold and the set lists tend to be a bit pedestrian, I don't think I gave this release a lot of attention, it probably got a listen and then I moved on to the next thing.

But from the sounds of the Opening Bertha > Good Lovin' through.. I'm up to Tennessee Jed, this sounds like a hot one! I think most of April is real good?!?

It's gonna be a good day to listen to the Dead!

PS - BOLO24 did you get my guess?
I tried to send a PM with my Fixable Foot Show Guess, being new at this participation thing and all, message system is kinda hooky... Can't tell if it got sent to you or not?

Bertha> Good Love rocks, Candyman LLR was nice, rest of set 1 was just okay,

Lazy Supp. nice jam, Estimated>Eyes was nice, Drums into NFA love that, Wharf Rat Sugar Mag
OMSN blow out.

Nashville is a fine choice for a revisit, anniversary no less! Cool cover art also, psychedelic river boat and Wharf Rat. Anybody looking for an excellent paddlewheel side trip should take a listen to the album Mark Twang by the late great John Hartford. Gratefulgal - def will check out the solo Jerry show. I saw tail end of a Garcia & Kahn show a couple months later at Auditorium Theater in Chicago. Rowdy happy crowd. End of show, people yelling for Jerry to play Ripple. Then someone yells out loud and clear -"Play what you want!" Jerry looks up, says "Thank you!" and then plays Ripple! As to "Fixable Foot" - i got nothing Bolo.

I'm glad you enjoyed. I love the Gomorrah as well! I think the announcer saying "This is a rare musical experience" is very true for this show. Going Going Gone is also hauntingly beautiful.

Rare Musical Experience indeed!

I think that's John Scher (promoter) doin' that introduction.

There's a couple of videos of Rubin & Cherise (Spelling seems to be subjective) & Ripple floating around on the interwebs.. They'll definitely bring a smile to your face.

Jerry!

I wonder if the whole set / both sets video is out there somewhere?

I'm diggin' this! Thanks for the tip..

Yay Work! The economy needs you.

Not working & shit, but in spirit you know?

BTW Miller has been dropping some nice Don Pearson Cassette Master Upgrades lately... there's some freshies out there! Especially if you like 1989, 90 & 91... 9/26/91 comes to mind.. I know that run gets pretty panned by history and in McNally's book, but I dug that show the other day... for '91 sounded pretty sweet.

Best wishes.

Rocking Bertha>Good Lovin! Very nice Candyman (what a great song! This version is stellar.) Donna sounding great on LLR. Tenn Jed - why so sllllooooowwww? It is such a great tune, but at this pace, it is a bit of a bore. Jack Straw is pretty standard, Peggy-O is always welcome, and this one is pretty good- Jerry's singing is solid. Minglewood is high-energy, rock-star Weir, and Deal closes things out nicely. Overall, I enjoyed it... It does get dragged down in the middle of the set with Tenn Jed serving as the the third "slow" tune in a row, then followed by an average Jack Straw and another slow tune Peggy-O. Miglewood and Deal bring the energy back up, but neither are "must-hear" versions, IMO. Overall, a solid 7/10.

"That's it, we quit." Sounded like Bob was actually kinda pissed!

Now onto Set II...

Peace

I received a PM from Bolo saying that he did not get my original, so it looks like PMs are working (at least in some capacity.)

I replied to his PM, but have yet to hear anything. I think my problem was that the site didn't recognize that I had sent the message to Bolo. The original is in my Messages folder, but I am the only recipient. I know that I typed his username into the "To:" portion, but for some reason, it didn't register.

No winner yet, although That's Otis was on the right track - he just needed to try a "little bit harder, just a little bit more, a little bit further than he gone before."

EDIT: No, "The Wheel" isn't in the setlist.

Garcia's solos on virtually every song of that JGB 91 release were immaculate. Whether slow, fast, bluesy or funky, each song was performed darn near flawlessly. Melvin and David were beasts on their respective instruments, with the ladies adding beauty to the vocal palette. A great latter-day release!

Dave's Picks #15. One more Saturday night in Nashville. Damn right! Like Otis and Strider, I don't listen to this one often, but I should. I usually pull 4/24/78, Dave's #7.
But this wonderful exercise is forcing me to listen to these shows again in full.

Nice first set, yes Otis, that New Minglewood blues really rocks. Bob definitely kicked it up a notch on this one.
I have to say I really like Deal, however, this version and other 78 versions with Donna's high pitch squeal of Deal, just makes me want to turn it off. Sounds like yodeling.
Second set is sweet, great start and I like the Estimated, but Jerry kind of wanders a bit in these 78 versions. Really good Eyes, love the Wharf Rat and great finish with Sugar Magnolia and One More Saturday Night.

These picks have been fun for me people. Thanks!

I think Conekid maybe had some suggestions for next picks? I have a few more as well, but I will wait until others get some more in.

Oh, one more thing, I believe we will be getting another early April 78 release soon.

Be well folks!

Edit, sorry I didn't see Dicks #12. Rats, another one I don't have.

At this point, it's fairly apparent that the odds of someone solving this riddle based on the sole clue provided are pretty low. On a positive note, some of the guesses have been quite clever and somewhat entertaining!

So, below you'll find a further (furthur?) clue. A consolation prize will go to the first accurate guess. I'll save the better goodies for a future giveaway. Again, show your work, one guess per screen name.

Here it is:

2 word anagram, no leftover letters.

Good luck!

Yeah Deadvikes, the pick I was holding on to is 8-13-75. I was looking for a reason to listen to the vinyl copy I have.
But we don’t have to listen to it this week.
Alternatively, maybe we need to throw in a more modern show at this stage of the game. Say, something with Bruce?
Maybe spiced up with some Branford in honor of his father being taken by Covid?
9-10-91 for tomorrow?

I can think of at least six shows that fit this bill. The US Festival in 82.. a few Fillmore East shows, Sunsplash '82 and of course the Closing of Winterland just to name a few. None of them contain fixable feet anagrams though.

I think all the clues are carefully documented if you take a magnifying glass and do a deep dive on Blotter Art. That's all I've got. Be safe all.

So, as the whole family is extremely fortunate and working from home and going to school, my 11 year had a very asoute observation. I have been working in our basement and playing a ton of GD. I don't do the headphones due to fear of hearing issues (yes, might be old lame reasoning). "Your music is so loud and annoying." Of course I said, "No it is not and if it was why do you always dance every time you hear it and sing along?"

"I don't like it, it is just stuck in my head."

For AJS and Carlo, Jerry! Jerry Garcia!

Hey there!

I've enjoyed reading the back and forth and tripping through these live Dead picks. It's like a smorgasbord:)

Follow Up on Yesterdays listening & comments:
4/22/78 - I agree with everything you all been laying down in regards to that pick and don't have anything better to add, nice work! It was fun to dust it off.. I think it might get dusty again.

4/10/82 - Jerry Acoustic, man is that a treat! Both sets, so intimate and special, flawed and personal. Kinda like the maestro himself a multi-faceted jewel.

I took a detour along the route to today and I'd highly recommend it -
4/22/77 - What a killer show!

After tripping through June '76 box set & DiP V20 - 9/25 & 9/28/76 followed by DaP V15 - 4/22/78 this show lands right in the middle and gives them a run for their money.

The 1st show of the legendary Spring Tour, an AMAZING 20 minute PITB to close Set 1, The 2nd ever FOTM, 1st ever Mojo. It's definitely worth the trip. And... it's so cool to hear the difference between 1976 & 1978. Ever changing ever evolving. It's the same band, but it's not. Check out the solo in IMHBTR (playing right now), wow Good Stuff! The launching point for some of their most legendary shows that will follow in the next coming weeks. This show feels like it's a bit off the radar, can't remember really settling into it before, probably collected in a fever to get everything and.... well check it out!

Alright, sounds like today is packed with more good listening suggestions -
1991-09-10 - 30 Trips
1974-06-26 & 1974-06-28 - DiP V12

I've got my work cut out for me, but I'm hip to the challenge.

Be Well you all and keep the good times rolling!
