6/27/69 and 11/2/69 are great as well.
He can't do anything about that, unless he was mixing a multi-tracker which I don't think he has the access or equipment to do...
From my perspective he wasn't too bad with that by 1969...
I have a complete Beethoven Symphony LP boxset by Bernstein and the NY Phil that was a hand-me-down from my maternal grandparents. I also have a CD of the 5th & 7th by Kleiber and the Vienna (Weiner) Phil.
Not sure if there’s any others.
Admittedly, I rarely listen to classical though. Less than .5% of my listening time, surely.
Then again Grateful Dead music only takes up perhaps 30-40% of my listening time - unlike the >90% that some of you nuts do.
No, it's largely up through '67 although I don't listen to much '68.
I don't know why but I feel like that's such a kickass way to end a show--and not just for its bloodymindedness, although that is appealing about it too
Eh. Jerry just puts a little warble in there from time to time. It’s an acid-rock affectation, IMO, since you can hear it in other Bay Area band vocals at the time. It doesn’t sound anything like Baez’s constant soprano vibrato.
It's a great idea. I have listened to so many shows over the years I don't remember anything about. I started taking notes in June when I began my Europe 72 listen. I just counted and it's hard to believe, but I now have notes on 165 shows. A minority are things I plunked in from memory, some more are things I listened to partially, and the rest I've listened to since June (I'll guess half I've listened to all or most of, or at least one set or the meat of, since then?)...it's mind-blowing to think everything I've forgotten over the years, and how great it is to have a quick reference at least for what some notable song renditions are, and sometimes a bit of detail....
while driving to Austin tonight, I was listening to the Dead station on Sirius and I heard the first 2 songs from a Baltimore '77 show. Really liked it.
Downloading 5-26-77 from bt.etree now and hoping (guessing?) it's the same show.
Fixed that for you.
Is that really likely though? How does that work? I think the only thing recommending it is the lack of a better answer.
Excellent show, massive Sugaree and my favorite Brown Eyed Women in the first set...
EDIT: so there you go, I thought "add those to my notes!" Went to the notes, there's already an entry with Sugaree and BEW singled out...must have thought of it already, who knows when. It's good to take notes!
Listening now to The Eleven from 1969-06-14, a great version. Even if you're someone like me who spent many (wasted) years neglecting the 60s, any Deadhead has heard The Eleven a zillion times. But tonight I just flashed on it and said "My god! What an amazing piece of music!"
Wow; I just react in real time and then again later. I'm nowhere near as organized.
I can't get enough of it. The 11-8-69 Eleven, in between St. Stephen and Caution, is just off the charts. Jerry and Phil are monsters during that entire sequence.
Listening to Grateful Dead music can be just pure relaxing entertainment. Or it can be school. In reality, it’s always both, but one can choose to turn off the educational aspect if one chooses.
listening to this now
Chris has always had one helluva voice
Check out 1/2/70’s “The Eleven” from Dave’s 30.
If I have to choose one, I'm going to school!

after listening to Chris Robinson sing Sugaree, I want to hear him sing a LOT more Dead songs. Love that dude's voice!!!!!
Most likely because many people's voices become "wavy" and warbly while singing on acid.
@everybody but particularly maybe @notesofachord
What is the thematic jam at 19:08 of Dark Star 1969-11-02 (before Soulful Strut/faux-"Tighten Up" at 22:34)?
And then a slowed-down "Soulful Strut" at ~25...this is a remarkable sequence...it just starts slowing down, and then slows down some more...
