    Any love for the Walkin' Blues from Without a Net (10/23/89 I think?)? Brent's organ on this one - I love it. Chum-chum-K-chunka-chumm... For me it's almost impossible to beat well-played classic B3 / Leslie sound for keyboards, preferably mixed loud.

    “Woke up this morning, felt around for my shoes. That’s when I knew I had them, them ol’ walkin’ blues“

    Got some love for that song.

    Went to the recent meet up at the movies. Never felt the “rock star” Bobby more than I did that night. Camera angles were tight. Quite the production. Gotta think Bobby liked himself up on the big screens.

    Frankly Scarlet, I don't give a damn.

    Sorry, since first seeing your username I've been waiting a while to dredge out that old chestnut. Happy Birthday.

    Lone Star Dead (the Friday night Dead show on KNON 89.3 out of Dallas) played the bulk of 4/6/87 from Meadowlands tonight. Great show to listen to while I picked up the house, watched my Rangers beat up the Yankees, and enjoyed a Martin House Magnolia Malt Liquor in between.

    Having fairly recently taken the plunge on this investment myself I can say that it was well worth it and I’m sure you will enjoy it and not regret having taken the plunge yourself. Happy Birthday!!!

    I had to cut it short earlier at TIFTOO and didn’t make it to the Dark Star. I do enjoy a ‘68 “Dark Star” a lot, although I personally wouldn’t take it so far regarding the ‘73s. Much to my surprise, what I’ve found that I love in primal Dead even more than “Dark Star” is “Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl”. Even though, at least based on the first listen, I didn’t think the 10-20-68 Schoolgirl reached the same level of perfection as the 8-24-68 version from Two From the Vault, I’d still say that one can never have too many Schoolgirls under their belt.

    I still have a little energy left for some GoGD tonight, but I’m thinking I could use some visual stimulation so I’m going to put on The Grateful Dead Movie.

    The late-nite mini-set: (most of) the 11/18/72 Houston RSD CD.

    Thought I heard some thunder earlier this evening from the northerly direction, must have been coming from old Virginie...

    Actually it's "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn." Sorry for the pedantry.

    I am aware of the disparity between the common perception of the line and its actuality, but you are correct to call me out. Nothing worse than a wise-ass who can't sort his Hollywood references. So, I'll leave y'all with a proper quote to fill in, in honor of @SBegonias17's birthday (bonus points for those who get the reference without using google or other such nonsense and get it right): The prisoners got one hot meal a day: __________.

    Good to hear, that’s one of my favorite versions.

    Yep, strangely enough it became the more common order at that point.

    There’s also a studio version of Who Was John with Garcia on the Keith and Donna album.

    Nothing there to supply an answer with. Basically it just looks like it worked live because it was followed by The Eleven.

    Listening to the first Dave's Picks bonus disc 7/29/74. I have never heard it before and so far this seems to be the best of the bonus discs.

    My wife loves "Playin'" but can't stand Donna's wail. I point out that it lasts maybe five seconds, but that fails to placate her. She never lets it pass in silence.

    The Dark Star from 2/22/69 (30 Trips) might be my new favourite. What a gorgeous beast! Captain Trips is all liquid on this one. Shame he blew the lyrics, hahahaha.

    On point, a demo version of Pride Of Cucamonga came up on my shuffle tonight. Just Phil and an acoustic guitar, probably him. I never paid a whole lot of attention to the lyrics before but it sounds like Bobby Petersen's autobiography. A real interesting character.

    [​IMG]

    Wrote lyrics for 3 Grateful Dead tunes on record and the legendary Revolutionary Hamstrung Blues which got played once in concert.

    With lyrics like those it's understandable why it only got one go.

    They originally recorded the whole St. Stephen>Eleven for Aoxomoxoa, including the bridge (complete with bagpipes!), but once they decided to drop the Eleven, the bridge followed.
    Many people say that bridge is really part of St. Stephen, but it was only performed along with the Eleven. All the Stephens played before and after its pairing with the Eleven ended with the answer man. I suppose the bridge is a separate piece that doesn't belong to either song individually.

    After the usual disappointment of Dick's Picks 16 (I play it every few years) it was amazing to hear 2/22/69

    That show is even better than the Fillmore West shows.

    If I was home alone I would blast it so the whole street could hear.

    Earlier this week I rolled the Relisten random show dice and landed on Boston Gahden 9/30/93, the last show of a 6-show run there (the last 3 of which I attended; I was back east for a weekend family wedding and caught the three weekday MSG shows before the wedding festivities and the 3 weekday Boston shows after them). Not a great setlist, but other than Lucy and the Sky with Diamonds, which was fun at the timebut wasn’t built for the ages, it’s a very well played show. Really nice latter day Crazy fingers and then a well played Other One->Wharf Ray out of Space. Don’t think I’d heard it since that night.

    Tonight I decided to reach into the Europe trunk for the first time in a while. Back when I marathoned this box when it came out, I have to admit I was getting the aural equivalent of palate fatigue when I got to the Lyceum run, so, other than 5/26/72, which was an obvious standout and has gotten several plays, I didn’t focus on the other shows in that run as much as I could have, and haven’t gone back to the others since either, so I figure it is time to revisit that run starting with 5/23 tonight. Plus I was in the mood for a China Cat->Rider after catching up on the thread, so a Europe ‘72 show I don’t know that well seemed to be in order.
