re: Grateful Dead
I liked the song before but hearing it live bumped it up to the top of my ever growing favorites list. Such a unique and upbeat tune.

The crowd was whipped into a frenzy during this when JRAD was tossing in Phish teases. I was loving it all.

I'll give your recs a listen.

8/3/69 - Dark Star>Alligator>Drums>The Other One>Caution>And We Bid You Goodnight

A sax player and violinist are sitting in with the boys and this extended jam is absolutely killer. The Caution turns from dark and spacy to bluegrass by the end. Worth a listen!

re: Grateful Dead
Went and saw the third night of Dark Star Orchestra's Boulder run on Saturday night. Got treated to an absolute heater of a setlist from 6-18-1983 @ SPAC. The guy next to me called Mexicali Blues and then said he was pretty sure it was SPAC '83. Told me it was a greatest hits setlist and that we had a "sick Althea" coming up. Sure enough, he was right. Lost him throughout the night, but wanted to find him at the end of the show.

Just look at the damn second set! It never ends. I thought for sure that Dew was the last song and we'd go into encore. Nope. Stones->NFA->Touch to end the set! You kidding me? I was so stoked to get Don't Ease Me in as a first encore, I didn't mind the cliche One More Saturday night. They announced the date of the show and then played an elective Ripple to close out the night. It was pretty perfect.

My friend had an eyes opening experience with a nice dose at the show. Fun to watch him. Especially coming down from it after the show and the afterglow the next day. It was a great experience all around. Super great crowd and energy.

If they wouldn't have been playing an old show, it would have felt contrived and over-the-top. It was a lot of damn music. But to their credit, they crushed it!

I was subconsciously skeptical going into the concert, but DSO won me over. The Drums->Space had my skin crawling, and the slow solo from Scarlet into Fire had the mid-40's Head in front of me losing his mind. The Deal to end the 1st set had me convinced the balcony was gonna crash down from above.

Hoping a tape comes out of the show, but for now we can listen to the real band kick some arse (link below).

Bertha-> Jack Straw,
Bird Song,
Mexicali Blues-> Big River,
Althea,
Hell In A Bucket-> Deal

Scarlet Begonias-> Fire On The Mountain,
Playin' In The Band-> Drums-> The Wheel-> Playin' In The Band Reprise-> Morning Dew,
Throwing Stones-> Not Fade Away-> Touch Of Gray,

E:Don't Ease Me In-> E: One More Saturday Night

Dave's Picks subscriptions are up for next year.


DaP24 (8/25/72) sold out in 6 hours
DaP25 will be 11/6/77 (a legendary show) and will also sell out in hours

lemieux says #26 will be epic as well

for $99 you get all 4 2018 releases, plus a bonus disc, plus free shipping
no-brainer, especially with the prices these releases are getting on the secondary market

my birthday show (plus 11 years..)
11/4 Colgate, 11/5 Rochester and now 11/6 Binghamton are all released.
these are three of the best late 70's dead you'll find

to me they could release every show they have from 68 to 78 before they do any 80s or 90s but that's personal taste

re: Grateful Dead
I agree 1000%

This is my 4th yr. subscribing early for the Dave's Picks. Wish I would have done it sooner as the re-sale prices on DaP 1-12 are insane

The best surprise is receiving your quarterly CD and it's from a show you attended, or from an awesome bootleg that you wore out during the 80's.

Well, I pulled the trigger and ordered a subscription. I figured that's much better than gripping about getting shut out before every release, lol...better to set it and forget it.

Keller Williams and the Infamous Stringdusters playing a Grateful Grass set from Hillberry Music Festival two weeks ago.

Couldn't have been a more perfect setlist for me. Tennessee Jed played right before I drove back to my home state of Tennessee the next day.

But the real song you need to check out is the They Love Each Other/Cumberland Blues mashup.
