I hear the high hats
OMG little school girl is smoking hot!
If Pig says she's hot, then she's hot. No further discussion required.
Phil and Pig are on fire
Jerry's no slouch
Love me some pig
OK tomorrow I will come back with the 331/3 experience of the same, now so super excited!
And you guys give my date formatting a hard time …
20 September 1974- Paris
I wasn't around yesterday, so two days today.
All of these except one were at the Garden and that one was at the other Gahden.
September 19 - was at 1987, 1988, and 1990
1987 - Another of the best shows of this run. Possibly my favorite. I took my father to this show, and he liked it......(from afterwards, "Black Muddy River was his favorite Dead song). Well played with another great 2nd set, "Crazy Fingers>Uncle John>Playin"and the first (non-Dylan) "Maggie's Farm."
1988 - This show, like most of MSG 88, was a big blur. I guess significant for the only "China Doll" of the year.
1990 - Much has been said already, and yes, it might be the best of the run. We know all the highlights.
September 20 - was at 1987, 1988, 1990, 1991, and 1993
1987 - Felt lackluster after the last two shows.
1988 - I remember this as being my favorite after 9/16/88. Liked the "Morning Dew" and "Terrapin" (which I think I remember they played around with Jerry's vocals only coming from the back speakers from some verses). Great setlist on paper.
1990 - Much has also been said about this one. It was the only time mail order gave me front row (and front row center at that). Top 20 favorite show.
1991 - Much has also been said about this one.....I'm in the minority, but while I liked the show, I thought it was lacking in some areas. 1st set wasn't great. "Help>Slip>Fire" was wild for the surprise. I thought the "Estimated>Truckin" that followed was the best part of the show.........and of course "Morning Dew." I had a great time, but might be a show where the word overrated could be used.
1993 - The best show of MSG 93 that didn't have a (as Popeye would say it) sax-o-ma-phone player. Great setlist. My only time seeing "The Race Is On." Edie Brickell reading weird poetry during space was great too.
9/19/88, 9/19/90, 9/20/91 are fantastic.
On 9/19, I saw the '87 and '90 MSG shows. The Playin' on 9/19/87 features one of the best jams of that year.
On 9/20, I saw the '90 and '93 MSG shows, and agree with your assessments.
The '90 shows of course were both outstanding. I'd forgotten when you'd done your earlier posts that I'd also attend a Shoreline run from 9/16/94 through 9/18/94. Have to admit that I don't remember much at all from that run - I saw a lot of shows at Shoreline and a lot of those from '93-'95 blend together in my memory.
It all rolls into One.
I heard this on the Dead Hour once. Fun setlist idea but I remember on one of the "Fire" choruses the singers all came in a beat late. Always wondered what happened there.
Christopher Hazard has been uploading Fall '91 shows on YouTube in HD. I'll prolly watch 9/20/91 in the near future.
Lol I've been a member here for 6 years but never posted really, but I'm glad to see such a big Dead following. I am quite obsessed. I just recently picked up the 50th anniversary vinyl of Skull & Roses and the matching shirt. So sweet.
I'll have to listen to this run again but I always preferred this show over the following night (8/01). Higher energy. I always felt this show got the short end of the stick since there is no soundboard.
IWT. That was the night King Abbad II al-Mu'tadid died. Gave them the whole idea for Blues for Allah.
That's a good price. Crank it up.
That's, like, basically almost the whole second set. The Estimated>Truckin>Jam sequence is off the hook, as previously noted, and I seem to recall that the Morning Dew was particularly good the last time I listened to it. Fast, fiery Jerry when he's completely in control. I agree that the first set was nothing special, the only set of the 12 in Boston that gave me that impression at the time.
Now listening to 9/20/87[MSG NYC]on TIGDH on XM's Grateful Dead channel via the webstream now playing Hell In A Bucket.
You hit the nail on the head. All folks want to do at a wedding or party is to get drunk and dance. Catharsis, if you will.
It is catchy? Does it have a good beat? Boom. Perfect for the wedding. Folks are not paying attention to the lyrics.
Did you hit the Wrigley shows?
At a cousins wedding the first dance was to the song If I Had The World To Give. Grooms Choice.
