Yeah, I always dug that one, good call.
First set songs like that were often ablaze in the Brent era.
In fact, it is utterly right to listen to the whole boxset this weekend. I'll get on it just as soon as set 1 of 24 March 1973 finishes playing.
Mere first set songs, as one might say.
I have experienced the non-linearity of time at numerous GD, Furthur, and Phil & Friends shows. Uncle Albert was always there leading me on.
Because of the expectations for glory in the second set, the first set of many 80's shows was more enjoyable in some very specific ways.
I'm already half way through the 10th show. I love this box and I love 73. The sooner the latest DaP arrives the better
Sorry, don’t mean to derail the discussion, but I’m currently listening to the Omaha gig from the July 1978 collection and it just struck me this period may well contain Donna’s finest performances with the GD. Her voice blends in wonderfully with the boys’ and there isn’t one iota of harshness, like in some other gigs (that being, as I understand, due to the lack of a proper monitor, which prevented her from actually hearing how she sounded). And it just shows how much she adds to the ensemble, when singing with so much gusto. OK, little epiphany confession time over, just thought I’d share it with you.
To me it’s not heresy, it’s obvious.
I sold it to you! You probably didn't realize it was me because I went by "Wavy Flag" in those days. I was a scammy Deadhead, so watch out.
It is right, and it is good. So it is written, and so it shall be done. Blues For Allah be praised.
Big fan of that Truckin' > Other One!
Might have to hook up the HDCD player and give Winterland ‘73 the proper treatment.
War Memorial Auditorium
Good stuff. Jesus...that Jack Straw...fuuuuuuuudge.
June 23rd, 1990
Probably the best show of the summer. Foxboro may have a claim, but the scene in Eugene couldn't be beaten, and we got Ron Boise's Thunder Machine.
Yes, I knew your praise of the Brent era could not possibly be unadulterated...
Brother, I saw many a Brent show that would burn off both your little ears. Some of my favorite shows were in 81 - 84, and I know that the experiences of the evening didn't always translate to the recordings. I also saw a few clunkers in those years, so there was a balance.
I was simply articulating a dynamic that I and others noticed back in the day.
Well I like the Scarlet>Fire from 1979-12-03, I don't know why it is sneezed at. It has the sleepy vibe of the rest of the show, but Jerry is playing, despite the rumors...
And the Franklin’s Tower....wow. Like, WOW!
Can you give us a full review? ala @warewolf95
Yes, boi, while Im on hiatus, you @Freebird must assume the review mantle
Queuing up the Sugaree from the above date now. The matrix sounds real sweet to these ears.
Thanks for leading me to the 12/13/80 Scar>Fire. Checking it out now, Dusborne Matrix.
Great looking setlist as well (for 1980...)
That Scar>Fire was pretty rad. Scar seemed to take its time warming up but Fire was raging legit by the end. Felt a lot longer than it actually was.
Good middle solo on the Scarlet though.
Spinning right now♠️
