    That's cool. I was stumped by We can Run, I had to look up the setlist.

    What's remarkable, from the bits I sampled anyway, is how little what one might think of as "rhythm guitar" he plays, if we consider that carrying the rhythm; Weir seems to be sort of playing around in the rhythm but not really carrying it.

    Other than some early examples of Lovelight, Bertha, et al, Weir never really carried the rhythm. Phil didn't either. Keith sort of did and the drummers were probably as close to a traditional role of rhythm section anchors as anyone. The result was the crazy conglomeration that we know as the GoGD.

    I went on a three-week vacation to Thailand in 1982 and stayed for four years.

    Listening to this and it's awesome. Sound quality isn't A+ but totally listenable, and is incredible.

    Only have time for disc one tonight, but someone should be listening to this on its anniversary. :shrug:

    Might as well be me.

    Is it me or is the GTH version of Althea the gold standard for GD studio material? It’s perfect in my book. The recording style/sound is very reminiscent of the time, sure but there’s something quite special to it.

    Dave’s Picks 31 has sent me on an Althea rabbit hole tonight. The live one on the 2003 remaster from RCMH 1980 is amazing as well. Now listening to the Go To Nassau one...

    Totally agree. It's firmly in the category of "slinky, noir Dead" that I love so much, along with "West LA Fadeaway." I love that sound.

    Texas-Oklahoma-Kansas-Colorado-Wyoming-Idaho-Washington-Oregon-California-Arizona-New Mexico-Texas on our last major run.

    The trip sucked for a number of reasons but getting to see the west was absolutely wonderful.

    That venue @ CU Boulder is known as the Glenn Miller Ballroom. Glenn Miller, the famous Orchestra leader from the 1930's and 40's, was a CU graduate. It's a beautiful room in one of the older buildings on campus. To have seen the GD there in 1969 must have been mind-blowing on many, many levels.

    PS- It was during this visit to Boulder that Jerry purchased his first pedal steel guitar. This was an important moment in musical history.

    Bob's the anti-Ringo. It's impossible to tell what song he's playing by hearing him in isolation.

    I listened to part of the first set last night in bed. Short but very fiery version of Help>Slip with some of my favorite Jerry licks.
