    Dave’s 20 has some highlights, but is a below average show. I’ve liked every other 81 show I’ve heard more.

    I know it was released due to the reel recording and a great set list on paper. It’s not terrible, but it’s not in the top 20-30 shows of the year.

    bzfgt gets it, lol.

    more alike than unlike, especially these days. admittedly, the difference was probably considerably more substantial in 1981.

    OH F$#K. :cussing:

    Ordered, naturally, the new box yesterday. Today (about half an hour ago) I slipped while in the attic, doing the classic foot-through-ceiling thing. Hello big hole, bye bye $$$$$$$. Wife has already mentioned yesterday's order - with a sigh and head shake...

    Have put the Winterland 73 box on and logged in to here as a distraction, ish.

    I was very excited to hear Phil using a Fender Jazz bass on DaP 20 and the results were very shelf-worthy. And there it remains and shall continue to do so. On the other hand, his work in '90-'91 on his Ken Smith 6-banger is top-shelf. Lots of shelves goin' on.

    Don't do it! I'd suggest the 9/10/91 show from the porch crusher if you have it. Upon my own recommendation above, I finally pulled that one out and saw disc 3 and immediately slapped it in. Then I saw that disc 3 was a continuation of what starts on disc 2, so I promptly removed 3 and slapped 2 in there. Lesh's Smith is grinding away at the enamel on my teeth and it feels so good.

    What a second set:

    Help-->
    Slip-->
    Franklin's
    Estimated-->
    Dark Star-->
    Drums-->
    Space-->
    Dark Star-->
    Miracle (after hearing the 1/15/79 Miracle--> Shakedown, I became a lifelong fan of this one)-->
    Standing on the Moon-->
    Lovelight
    E: Baby Blue!

    And Branford shares the stage...

    I only knew of it appearing in ‘Dark Star’ I guess - famously the 2/13/70 show, no? I guess I didn’t recognize it as the same thing.

    It is similar, but I wouldn't say it's the same thing either.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, I feel as though I've been granted a stay of execution... ;) Also worthy of a trip into 1991 is 10/31.

    This Estimated from 9/10/91 is quite the ride. I normally avoid this song, but I may need to revisit some of them. Of course, the spectre of Dark Star to follow doesn't hurt the anticipation much. Just got there as I typed that...

    saw a couple nights of the garden run that year but not that one, and the previous year i went to four out of the six and was on a train back home the fianl night of course. i caught branford in los angeles in 94 but alas no DS. it was enjoyable but for that particular tune it takes away the darkness

    The out jam on Estimated from 7/1/78 is worthy of your attention. I know you have that box. Plus the Jerry solo on Wharf Rat is all-time as is Phil’s counterpoint.

    12/18/73 is playing on Sirius GD channel at the moment. That's one of the top 20 best "not released by GDP yet" shows IMO. Amazing stuff.

    They did release a short bit of "Let It Grow" from that show as a patch for the 12/19/73 version on the first Dick's Picks.

    That 7/1 show was a revelation to to me, a concise little jewel.

    Big Rock Pow Wow! The last RT I ever bought, before it sold out. This was only a few years ago. Oh wait, not true, I bought the Egypt bonus disc offah eBay less than a year ago.

    Currently on disc 3 of '76 30 Trips. Just started it--"The Wheel!"

    any pics?

    there may still be time to do an enhanced re-enactment- Youtube $$$ may defray your expenses

    get the wigs out, shaving cream, strobe light, whatever...

    "Drums" (Hart, Kreutzmann) – 6:16 >
    "And" (Bob Bralove, Hart, Kreutzmann) – 3:43 >
    "Space" (Garcia, Lesh, Mydland, Weir) – 10:06 >

    I don't care what show they choose for the next Dave's Pick as long as it has a sweet, jammed-out And.

    I never get tired of disco "Dancing In The Street" Dead. Other than some recording problems here and there, this '76 30 Trips show is fairly decent.
