    I dunno, I always kind of liked that one and wish they had given it more than one go. Beats the heck out of Wave to the Wind and the other latter day Phil songs. But I maybe had a soft spot because the 70’s kid in me always thought it was “Speed Racer” and not “Speed Razor,” the latter of which seems more of a Replacements “Lay It Down Clown” kind of thing. [Edit: that lyric sheet is a great find, never saw that before. That first set from Portland ‘86 is a good listen in general.]

    I don’t know if better, but it can hold its own. It’s a real shame there is a reel cut in what otherwise might be the best version of Death Don’t Have Mercy ever recorded. Garcia’s vocals on that version floored me when I first heard it.

    He looks too much like Dave. (He looks toomuch like Dave, he looks too much...)

    [Sorry, not sorry, for dropping a Phish reference into the thread. It was just sitting there on a tee when I happened to be passing by whistling and not trying to cause any trouble on my way home.]

    Don't forget to check out 10/29. You want high energy? Cue up the FoH AUD or the Matrix, turn up the sound and enjoy Might as Well!

    Aye laddie; I originally had a quote from Pulp Fiction but I opted for something a bit more family-friendly and slightly more obscure. And yes, that's Phil on acoustic on Cucamonga (and possibly the last time Jerry pulled out his pedal steel on the originally-released studio track (and furthermore, what's up with 2:12-2:22 on the originally-released version: a very not-so-subtle tribute to CSN(&/or)Y?)?). (!) :nyah:

    Phil's original demo of the tune has circulated for many years, and was given "pride of place" when bonus tracks were added to Mars Hotel, along with Unbroken Chain. The is a full band demo of Chain, and even a false start version where Jerry 'scolds' the piano player, whom he refers to as "fumble-fingers Godchaux."

    When are you going to change your handle to @warewolf90’s already :righton:. Always good to have some caped crusaders ready to jump in defense.

    11/8/69 (Dick's Picks 16) is unusual for being a jam with Dark Star where Dark Star is one of the least interesting parts. I enjoy it for the Uncle John and Main Ten jams, and the transitions from Dark Star to Other One and back.

    Amazon has the Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack for $16.82 at the moment. That’s $3.36 per disc or 38 cents per track. Buy it if you haven’t already! Get a copy for a friend!

    Yes, this is a very nice show with a great soundmix. From the multitracks I assume?



    Love Touch of Grey. It's so catchy. I'm feeling great whenever I hear it

    The recent Dave's has me delving into the 80s. After thoroughly enjoying DiP6 I have gone to the archive.
    Please, don't stop what you are doing, but add 2/26/81 Uptown Theater Chicago to your to do list.
    First, a really nice sounding sbd.
    Peggy-O and Music Never Stopped are all time versions.
    In set 2 there is a solid 10 minute jam after He's Gone which rivals some of the 73-74 free form sections.
    Haven't finished yet, this will get repeat listens.

    Non-Brent folks should hit this one up. Has a chill 76 feel to it.

    An incredible release and offers the most bang for the buck of anything currently available in the GD catalogue .

    My wife LOVES Donna’s wail plus PITB is her all-time favorite Grateful Dead song. She even loves the 15 to 20 minute versions. She still struggles a bit with the 25 or 30 minute versions but she loved the 31 minute version on Dave’s 11.

    Finished off the 10/20/68 show from 30 Trips earlier, that was a really good Dark Star, seemed like the set really got going right about then and was smoking all the way up to Caution and wrapped with a beautiful Feedback.

    Taking a little break from 30 Trips to giving another listen to 6/16/76 from Dave’s 18th and bonus disc.

    Thanks! Ordered. And saw that the GD Movie is available on Blu-ray so I ordered that as well.

    I have the dvd box but are there other videos available on Blu-ray now?
