    Random request: Does anyone have a gif of that hippie up at the front of the rail at Winterland from The Grateful Dead Movie?

    Thanks. I wasn’t being a smartass. I was truly confused that anyone on this thread wouldn’t know Welnick. Thanks for clarifying.

    In @ratstack and @bzfgt you've run into two of the biggest smartasses in this forum. :cop:

    I was preparing to listen to it and got distracted by this smokin' JGB cut:



    I want to check out that Airplane show that Dave posted, too.

    Yeah, that sounds right, I learned to play it once but don't remember it. The research, such as it was, only took about 4 minutes...I've done this with a couple other things; I go here:

    Cumberland Blues by Grateful Dead Concert Statistics | setlist.fm

    which once in a while doesn't have something, and then I'm lost.

    And then I just look at all the potentially relevant dates, and look up and play the relevant part of the relevant song on the rel...uh, on the Archive

    Now that I think of it, the last part of the riff may be hybrid picking. I.e. there are three rising licks that are played with hammer-ons, then a chordal thing (C to Bb?) that he may play with his fingers. I always played the whole thing with a pick when I played it because I'm not good enough to do hybrid picking.

    I was there. My first show. Insane.

    I was there, too. We had so much fun that the town never invited us back. :o

    Notably the interplay between Weir and Garcia is far easier to distinguish in the AUD version of this show than the SBD

    Brings a whole new meaning to the expression "couch tour", but unfortunately the video is blocked for me (the "Immigrant Song" video on the same page plays fine).

    Odd! It's just a youtube video-- plays fine on my end. Don't know if it'll make a difference but here's a direct link



    Smokin' version of Eyes to boot.

    IWT. Only one verse. Weir starts by accident (I believe) with the 2nd and they just take it from there.

    Ah, I was on the internet and not listening as attentively as possible I guess, I heard the second and thought it was 2nd.

    Even the bot prefers Relisten. Is that really a bot? I always thought it was a real bot, but is the bot really programmed to answer questions like "Why Relisten and not the Archive"? I am now skeptical about this whole bot thing.

    1978-06-04 The setlist indeed looks pedestrian (like many shows from 1978). Bertha is extremely energetic; that's as far as I've gotten thus far...

    EDIT: maybe not pedestrian, just standard for the year

    Yeah I think several songs are in the top tier, if not the actual bests evers....everything is really really hot, and I think that Jack Straw is definitely a contender....they are really playing the hell out of everything. I'm kind of surprised I never knew of this one...
