    I took my mom to that show. She said parts of the show reminded her of Wagner. My sister was supposed to go with us but didn't for some reason I can't recall now. She gave her ticket to a friend of hers, a deadhead who hadn't seen the band since the early/mid 80s and had no idea what sort of business they'd been up to for the prior couple of years. He was quite blown away and started seeing them regularly again until Garcia died.

    After the debut of Unbroken Chain in March, I think they played it once at pretty much every tour stop until the end.

    Billy's book is fun in that it reads exactly like Billy is sitting next to you on a bar stool telling you his life story, for all the good and bad that would imply.

    Technically yes, but one could argue "not really." In either case, it was rare, which was among the options presented.

    The Truckin' that opens 5/7/72 is fantastic. The same can also be said for the Sugaree that follows it. :cheers:

    I'd go with Huner's assessment from when it was published:

    "What he sees is mostly his own reflection. Other than that, what’s to say? It’s a hilarious book. But parts of me wish he hadn’t written that particular one."

    End of an era: The Palace of Auburn Hills demolition begins

    I’m thinking I saw six or more shows here, lots a great memories. I may have posted this here before but I think it was 94 on Garcia’s birthday they did an amazing stella blue and then into satisfaction, the place just exploded. It was the opening night of a Rolling Stones tour that started in DC, hence the decision to close the second set with satisfaction. Knowing the crowd was going to go nuts for that tune I think Garcia put a little extra into Stella not wanting to let Bobby steal the the show on the night of his birthday. As they say, not a lot of great shows from the era but some of the best moments they ever had.

    I like it too. Not surprised they didn't play it live though.

    Just to check, is Operator being put into the “never played” category or “rarely played” category?

    It should go into the latter as I believe there are a couple of performances from acoustic sets in ‘70 that circulate.

    There's a live electric version from November 1970, I remember hearing it on the Dead Hour.
