In my funny brain the word shag has only one definition..
Nationals shagged that last pop fly to move on to the NLCS. After that magnificent grand slam.
You can find the vast majority of the Daves in one handy dandy spot as well. They aren’t FLAC but they aren’t bad. Just gotta dig around for them. I won’t say where as the guy very clearly requests not to directly send anyone to his page.
I recommend reading Douglas Adams’ treatise on infinite improbability.
After 40 days my Pacific Northwest Box finally arrives. Shipped by UPS with no shipping notice or tracking number.
12 November 1971- San Antonio, Tejas. Within the last year or so Charlie circulated That's It For The Other One > Big Railroad Blues from SBD > MR > DAT. 30 minutes of time on the Star Cruiser then WHAM! back to Earth on a train.
The weather is getting colder, time to plan ahead for the Holidays!

1969-05-03 has a killer Other One
1974-09-11--amazing show, PiTB is surely one of the 5 best versions they ever played of this number.
Seastones>Jam>Eyes>Jam>Wharf Rat is one of the best, most astounding and unique segments ever!!! From about 13 minutes into “Seastones” the band starts to come back in, so I don't know if the next ~half hour is correctly called "Seastones"; Eyes intro takes its time, with Weir at first in the lead; it becomes a delicate weave before leading to the verse, and the post-Eyes jam makes this one of the jammiest segments ever--31 minutes from the intro of Eyes until the transition to Wharf Rat, which ends with a brief dark starry jam. GBTRFB is a tremendous version, although this is almost always the case to this point in their career, I think.
Stupendous run; really, two stupendous runs in a row (8/4-5-6, and 9/9-10-11). More good music in these six shows than we got in all of July (actually that was only 6 shows too, so really I'm just saying these six shows are better than the previous six).
I think so as well....was inspired to write about it a few years ago.
Talk From The Rock Room: Put the Boot In: "Doin That Rag"- The Grateful Dead May 3, 1969 Winterland
Damn, almost makes me feel like buying it again.
No, the version on Steppin' Out is from 5/23/72, I'm fairly certain.
The recording in circulation is the first set, we do not have set 2 which naturally contains a Dark Star.
PS- Excellent review, colorful and on point!
You’re gonna love it. Many treasures within.
Thank you! I just updated it to mention that Set II does not exsist as well.
Currently listening to my ipod classic on shuffle-15,760 songs-and "Equinox "-Terrapin outtake-comes up. Don't bother. Excellent choice to leave that one out from the official release.
Foul weather this weekend. I am tempted to have another Dark Star Saturday. Last time I got through 18 versions in one day. I think I can beat that.
Thanks for providing tomorrow's playlist.
Same with golf - everyone has a shag bag of old golf balls for practicing with.
May all your discs be unscratched and free of glue. (I had to replace 11)
Did one of my occasional "open the trunk & pull out a show" a couple days ago ~ the prize was Paris, 4 May 72. Provided the soundtrack for two roundtrip commutes and a living room (disc 4) chaser last evening.
Good Lovin' is exquisite, maybe my single favorite song of the night. They go to so many little places, then leave them as soon as you're hooked (Bob's playing, in particular, in high relief), and, raw as he is, Pigpen delivers the goods. Love his organ on Goin Down the Road and the start & end of Not Fade, too, and how high in the mix it is ~ sounds like a template for Brent on those songs.
Sing Me Back Home is another highlight, Jerry's solo both poignant & bad@$$. And every time they play The Stranger, it's a special event.
Pigpen's organ really came into its own on this tour. Really shimmers behind some of Jerry's tunes with a maturity far removed from the '66 Sugar Shack sound (which of course I love, as well).
Sorry to randomly ask a question, but are there lots of outtakes for the studio albums? The only things i ever heard were bonus tracks on the early 2000's releases. I'd love a studio series similar to Dave's Picks or Road Trips.
Just early stuff, but:
Birth of the Dead - Wikipedia
18 in one day? That is top notch stuff. Go for 19! Enjoy the ride.
I agree that Good Lovin’ is a bigger highlight than Dark Star on 5/4/72. The Star is still amazing, of course, but gets a little aimless in the middle and is one of my least favorite renditions from the tour.
pretty much the answer is no. there are demo's or alternate takes and pretty much everything else worth a lick has been officially released
