The Dead, Best and Most catalog of music ever 1 Reply

  I wonder what the Dead were thinking as they hooked up the 2 track reel to reel for their first gig. And continued to do so for 30 years. A whole lot of it being releasable material, they started…Continue

wondering what happened to the pic I posted of Jerry?

thanks for your post, jimmy.  i agree with your take on the organic quality of the dead's musical evolution through live performances.  that is certainly why they hooked me in from a young age. 

i'd love a sdb copy of the 12/31/66 show as well.  hope dave considers a dip into the vault for that one.

if you're into pre-1970 dead,  check out this show from the fillmore west (6/7/69) on the wolfgang's vault site:

the dark star>st stephen>the eleven is cracklin' with energy, and the sittin' on top of the world>cold rain and snow>doin' that rag is quite amazing--raw sound coupled with beautiful playing.  the lovelight includes the unmistakeable vocals of ms. joplin to ice the cake.

  Taping...The Dead weren't thinking ...they just enjoyed the live performance and the document... that let them evolve musically.

   Jerry and Bob were tapers...Bob taped Jorma a bit and Jerry got some bluegrass. I got most of what I wanted.

     I Still Want New Years SF 66/67!

  BTW FLORIDA has Crazy Fingers on Saturday Feb 23,2013 9pm Coral Springs Sample Rd Tavern.

    Anyone in Florida?

There is a link to Saturday night's show - will post it here when I get home - at work ("safety" job at law firm) right now and unable to access facebook - will post this evening

    Thanks for posting the link to the show, I will have to check it out. I caught the Wall of Sound In Person in Philly ,When they passed thru at the Convention Center in the Summer of 74, They hung the whole thing like a huge circle of speakers from the ceiling, plus stacks of speakers behind the stage, What a year that was for the Dead.

No problem, Jim.

Yes, I agree, a first-rate setlist from the Mann Center.

Here's a show I've been enjoying recently:

I think it is a far better performance than the Dillon Stadium show Dave chose for his 2nd "pick" of the series.

Thanks Steve,

      Furthur just passed thru Philly last night,was not able to go, but it was supposed to be good, the setlist looked excellent.

Dave's Picks Vol 3 is available for preorder.  10/21/71 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, IL.  I'm in.  The band is in fine form with the recent addition of Keith Godchaux on keyboards; gearing up for what I consider their peak years (1972-74), although the 1977 tour surely wasn't half bad.  Check out the link below to hear a few cuts from the Chicago gig:
