Grateful Dead General Thread

Awesome.  When I tell my kids I just want to hear one song, they know they need to Put a time limit on it or  I’ll pick a 72-73 dark star or playin.

i think 6/14/76 is my favorite Crazy Fingers.  I am at home with a sick kid today and am going to check out 8/18/89 Greek Theatre

I had to take my kid to school this morning and I was whistling Mississippi Half Step. I stopped and told him that I would bet he didn’t know what song it was. He didn’t even miss a beat when he answered. It damn near brought a tear to my eye.

Over the weekend my 9 year old ran into my bedroom and proceeded to sing along to, as she calls it, “roll away the dew”.  She acts like she doesn’t like GD stuff, but her singing along shows it has grown on her.

Exactly. Some songs my son lives and will admit it. His favorites are Cold Rain & Snow, Shakedown Street, and I Need a Miracle. But I’ll hear him singing along to They Love Each Other or he won’t ask me to change it if I’m listening to Eyes of the World. I hope the music grabs him the way it grabbed me many years ago. It’s life changing and the world needs more Deadheads!

You know what these young people are doing after they run into another room in the house, don't you?  They're planting ice so they can harvest wind.  

It's all these synthetic drugs, man.

I love Let the Good Times Roll-it’s one of my favorite show openers.   I love Sam Cooke’s original too (it’s really just called Good Times).  The Downhill From Here video is so great.

anyway, the third verse (Jerry’s) doesn’t appear in any other version I’ve heard. I’ve always wondered if they wrote it and added it in so everyone would have a verse to sing.  Googling only turns up one person asking the same question.  Maybe I’ll write Dave Lemieux.

And I hate the version that I’ve been seeing on some casino or cruise commercial lately.

There must be a Deadhead in the Thursday Night Football booth because every game this year has had a Dead song played into a commercial.  Last night it was Trucking with the "Houston too close to New Orleans" verse.

47 years ago tonight the Dead played Municipal Auditorium here in Austin.  Caught part of it on TIGDH on Sirius on my way home. The Other One is one of the better ones I’ve heard in a while.  Bob has a pretty cool solo of sorts somewhere in there.  Gonna check out some of the rest of the show now.

Well, since you heathens apparently have something better to do than drink and listen to the Grateful Dead I guess it is up to me to keep this thread going.  I'm jamming to 2/3/78 from Madison, Wisconsin tonight.  Great show!  May have to listen to the second set on the porch tonight.  It's beautiful in my corner of the world.

 

Also, some sad news to report in the passing of Joe Smith.  He was the music exec who signed the Dead to Warner Brothers back in the day.  He was featured prominently in the Scorsese documentary a few years ago.  He was pretty candid and pretty funny when interviewed about the Dead. He said he wouldn't eat or drink anything when he was around them because they dosed everything.

That guy was pretty funny on the doc.  I need to rewatch it properly as I watched it when it came out on my phone as our family toured Newfoundland.

listening to the jam>dark star from DaP 32 (3/24/73 philly spectrum).  The Spanish jam following the phil jam is pretty great.  
The Spectrum shows from that era are amazing.  9/21/72 (DiP36) is one of the best front to back show they ever played (best ever Cumberland, top 3 bird song, top 5 dark star.  Great Dew).  The Truckin>other one jam from 9/21/73 has my personal favorite jam ever right before a great MLB jam.  Not rated high on Heady, but should be.

I'm going to have to listen to some Grateful Dead to get the bad thoughts of the Cowboys out my head.  I'm currently jamming the 4/30/77 show from the Palladium in New York.  Who knows where I will end up tonight?
