    Walkin Blues
    Candy man
    Queen Jane Approximately
    Loser

    Hey Friends,
    My brother was born on 8/18/67. I hear tale of a small show at an American Legion Hall (I think) somewhere in Nevada (I think). Does anyone know if that show exists out there? Trying to gift it to him for his 55th next year.
    Many Thanks!

Hello Everyone, I was at the Garden this past Saturday night. (As I am sure you all know by now, it was amazing.) The blue tie dyes sold inside have a small "400" on the front and the back. These shirts are unique to the MSG show because it has the date and venue name. Does anyone know what the "400" means? Appreciate anything ideas on this one. Thanks.

I heard a sick version of Bertha on the Grateful Dead channel on Sirius that sounded like it had brass in it and I was just wondering the name or concert of this performance. It could be by a cover band but I do not know. It was on at about 7:45 eastern time. I really want to hear it again so please help me out! It was like no version I have heard before!

Does anyone know who the folks are who operate the red and gold first aid bus that I have been seeing at East Coast shows. They say "We know the way, we will take you home" on the back of the busses. I have always been fascinated by those busses. My fascination was rekindled last week in Philly.

If you or anyone you know may have witnessed ABUSE by the Chicago police the evening of 05-05-09 at (night of Allstate Arena show in Rosemont), you are urged to call attorney Goeffrey Fieger at 248-355-5555 and leave info with Robert Giroux. You can also call the Chicago division of the FBI at 312-421-6700. This is Rabbit and I can be reached at 419-215-0577.

I'm looking for someone with a better memory than mine...I'm pretty sure it was Roosevelt Stadium 72 but I can find nothing that tells me my memory was correct in that the New Riders opened (Jerry on pedal steel) and the boys came out with these costumes. They were glitter cowboy suits and the trails off the rhinestones were phenominal. Then there were fireworks that said everyones name at the top of the stadium, like attached. I can still see that as if it was emblazen on my brain. Anyone remember or know someone that does?

it is not necessary to post the info about the tapes you're trying to unload in multiple topics. Tape Trading, where you posted, is a fine place for it.

....on the GD channel. It was featured this week, either Wed the 27th or Thursday the 28th. I wasn't able to catch where the show was from. The songs sequence played was Eyes -> Dancin in the Streets -> Wharf Rat -> Franklins Tower. Tasty stuff indeed. Any help with id'ing the show would be much appreciated!!!!!

I need to see the light! As someone who only saw the Dead during the 1970s, and who fell off the bus after Keith & Donna left, after the Persian Opium infestation, and after all (almost all?) the great songs had been written, I've just never given the Brent/Bruce/Vince era any respect or love. And I never found anything truly inspiring in the various official live and studio releases from those years. I realize the band had tremendous ups and downs throughout that period, but I've somehow never discovered any highest highs to rival what came before. So here's my question: Which soundboard or audience show from the final decade and a half should I listen to in order to start overcoming my prejudice against 80's/90/s Dead? sincerely, HalSF, only half a Deadhead

Thanks for replies... noonie, I'll PM you. I'm probably more interested in hearing a great 1990 show than 1980 at this point, since I feel modestly familiar with '80 via Dead Set & Reckoning and FM radio broadcasts I heard back then.

In Truckin' up to Buffalo, the film of the 7/4/89 show at Rich Stadium, there is a trumpet sound during "I Will Take You Home," the Brent M. song. You don't see anyone playing a trumpet. You do see Jerry playing a Strat, the only time he uses it during the show. Does anyone know if the trumpet sound was from some kind of guitar/synth setup with the Strat? Also, there is a reference to a "shotgun ragtime band" in "Ramblin' Rose," from L.I.E. '72. Can anyone explain the "shotgun" part of that?

but Jerry definitely did play trumpet from one of his guitars, the one called Rose I think, which had much MIDI capability. You can find a whole lot of info about all the instruments in Blair Jackson's Grateful Dead Gear book, whose name I fondly hope I am remembering correctly.

Here's a link that will give you some insight on the lyrics Scholar:http://arts.ucsc.edu/Gdead/AGDL/ --- They explain, in grate detail, many of the lyrical elements of the GD repertoire here. It's really an awesome reference, I use it almost everyday. You should know that many of the Dead's songs' meaning will always be open to interpretation though. One of the grate mysteries of life...

Hi Hal, I got on board in the '90s and I highly recommend my first shows as a great example of later Dead - lots of great, jazzy playing and Bruce adds so much to these shows: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1992-03-20.fob.schoeps.gems.76478.sbeo… http://www.archive.org/details/gd1992-03-21.fob.schoeps.evens.gems.7648… Many people prefer the 1990 Hamilton Shows, but these have their special magic, with the Dead and mostly Jerry climaxing on every song - just brilliant playing overall. Enjoy, K

I believe the show you heard with the Eyes > Dancing > Wharf > Franklin's sequence was 3/19/77. Best site for stuff like this is deadlists.com. Go to search and enter 3 songs and "and" after the first two and you'll come up with every show that in which all those songs were played. It looked like a 77 or 78 sequence to me so I only to look at a few of the 15 shows that came up. Very Good show IMO. 3/19/77 One Bertha [6:30] ; Mama Tried [2:40] ; Loser [7:49] ; Big River [6:38] ; They Love Each Other [7:01] ; Looks Like Rain [8:14] ; Tennessee Jed [8:24] ; Estimated Prophet [8:23] ; Terrapin Station [10:20] > Playing In The Band [12:32] > Samson And Delilah [7:08] > Playing In The Band [11:18] Two Eyes Of The World [12:21] > Space [2:43] > Dancing In The Street [10:45] > Wharf Rat [10:00] > Franklin's Tower [13:56] > Sugar Magnolia [9:16] Encore One More Saturday Night [4:59] ; Uncle John's Band [9:01]

Looking for info about this show. I may be mistaken about the date, but I know it was my junior year in college so it had to be sometime between Fall 1974 and Spring 1975. Pretty sure it was in the Spring. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanx, Marye. Already looked there. Only 4 shows are listed for 1975: all in San Fran. I went back year by year and definitely narrowed it down to Spring '75. I was living in an apartment that year and remember for sure leaving the parking lot with our friends as we drove to Durham for the show. I went to Guilford College in G'boro, NC and it was about an hour and a half ride to Duke. Seems like I remember Jerry was beardless at the time. Couldn't tell you anything else about the show other than it was the cleanest sounding concert I have ever been to.

I asked Blair Jackson and David Gans about this, and to summarize what they had to say: 1. The GD did not tour in 1974. 2. Jerry was beardless in some of '74, bearded in '75. 3. They think what you saw was Jerry with one of his side bands. Hope this helps.

that #1 is probably a mistyping on David's part, and he meant '75, the hiatus year. This may well be the case. The salient fact seems to be Jerry's beardless status, which places the show firmly in '74.

I appreciate your research. Can't argue w/ facts, and indeed '75 was when they took time out. (No wonder only 4 shows were listed!) Must have been earlier that school year, which would be '74. Sometime between late August and December. Kinda hard to remember lots of details from 35 years ago, but it was a good show. One of our friends was from Durham and her mom was connected to Duke somehow. She got tickets for our whole gang. Even offered to put us up for the evening, too. I guess the "Beardless Jerry" creates the proper time line.

Thanx, Marye, for all your research. I finally got in touch with some friends who were also there and they told me the show was Dec 8, 1973. Amazing how 30 some odd years can mess with your memory.

Hey, I want to make a new post, but don't see how to do it? If I could do it, I wanted to ask a few questions. 1. On which albums did Jerry do the studio version of "I'll Take a Melody"? I know I once had it, but I can't remember which album it was on. Can anyone tell me? 2. I want to know which years did Keith and Donna Godchaux play with the band?

congrats, obviously you made a post! "I'll Take a Melody" is on Reflections. It was written by the great Allen Toussaint, who may have written a bad song sometime in his life but if so I never heard it.

Keith's first show was 10/19/71 which also featured a few other firsts, like Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw, Mexicali Blues, Comes A Time, One More Saturday Night and Ramble On Rose. Donna's "official" first show was 3/25/72. Keith and Donna's last show was 02/17/79. At least according to deadbase, anyway. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
