    Yea, I remember that from when I watched it. One of the absolute finest music documentaries I have ever seen. :)

    Thanks man!

    A 43 minute DS - wow! Didn't realize the lenght of it. That makes up for the seemingly short (for '73) setlist. :)

    It's a short setlist when Dark Star takes up so much Space.

    You’re aware that the 2001 is not the original mix?

    His awareness thereof is implicit in what he said, isn't it? Or am I just reading poorly?

    "The 2001 version sounded odd to me at first because I'd played the original so much (first on cassette and then on CD; I never had the vinyl). I haven't played them together in a long time so I can't objectively compare them right now, but the original will always be a dear old friend."

    If you don’t have RT 1.2 (Fall ‘77), I’d order that one now while it’s still available and shipping with the bonus disc.

    Looks like i won't be getting The Warlocks Box Set after all. ebay shaaysters! Grrrr.
    If it's too good to be true, it usually is. Oh well. My recent purchases are more than enough material for when i want a "Touch Head" era fix. Dick's 17 is quality.

    Also curious if anyone enjoys this from time to time. I watched the last night and remembered enjoying it somewhat. Didn't hear much of the first two nights.

    Truckin' Update:

    So, if anyone still remembers, lol, around Halloween MAMU had gotten off the road and parted ways with the company we were driving for. They didn't have their stuff together and their truck had more problems than 1995....

    Soon after I got in that car wreck. Spent a few weeks getting all that crap sorted out while looking for our next gig.

    Divine intervention struck and we, by chance, stumbled upon a billboard down a road we normally would never take, advertising for drivers. By this point we were in DEEP talks with several major companies and figured "why not try one more" just to vary the options.

    Turns out this last choice ended up being THE choice!

    Extremely long story of getting going with them while also barely scraping by doing BS construction/physical labor to pay the bills in the meantime cut short, as of Sunday afternoon we leave for Houston, TX, picking up a flatbed load to take to Maine!

    15 speed 2000-era Kenworth. The thing is a beast. 730 horsepower. Puts our previous ride to shame - and that was a good truck when it was functioning!
    HUGE sleeper. Classic chrome-and-wood steering wheel and paneling design, etc.
    The thing looks like it could eat you, haha.


    I'm already figuring out what the first show I listen to will be. :D

    Love you guys. :)

    Is it? He* may well have been suggesting that the 2001 sounded different but he* didn’t know or couldn’t perceive why. I was just pointing it out in case he* didn’t know that. I suspect plenty of people don’t, especially since David L stated in an interview at the time that nothing had been done to Live/Dead because it was perfect as it was, unlike the debut. At first I didn’t know it was a remix.

    *We are also assuming that he is a he.

    That RFK first show was very decent. Cd 2 was below par, but, I will need to listen again....with my vampire ears.

    Jerry was immense, that Lovelight....

    I also didn't know it was a remix at first. It took a couple of times through before I picked up on the things that were different.

    I wish I knew what happened to the original CD I bought in 94-95. I still have the case...

    Finally got my hands on the new vinyl boxset for a decent price. most shops I saw this item in charged 140-160 euros for a boxset containing 4 albums o_O
    Anyway, found the RSD Box for 100 Euros in a small shop in Vienna and gave it a go this time. And I'm pleasently suprised! Although I own original german pressings of all the albums (plus an MFSL Wake Of The Flood), these reissues do sound very nice. The new Steal Your Face is the best version version of the live album I heard.

    I have no idea about the differences myself, never having heard any 2001 versions. I see what you mean about him* knowing it's different but not why, as I said I could be reading poorly, so I probably was-- I don't know why I stuck my nose in, you should just say stuff about my mother next time I do that.

    *On a music discussion board if you guess "he" you have a very high percentage chance of being right. But I don't remember whom we're talking about since it's back there now, so I don't know if I had any more reason than that.

    I was being a little facetious about the "he" thing. I suspect 99.9% (at least) of people on here a boring old or young, male losers!!

    The 2001 mix is quite different from the original (e.g. vocals centred rather than panned wide). Really weird that it was done at all...unless the original tape was gone. Even then, though, you'd think they would have copied the original mix as closely as possible.

    That feels like a '74 WOS show to me! I'd insert a pic of those yellow semis rollin' down the road in the GD Movie if I could find one!
