    For the record, I too would wear the $hit out of that sweater a few pages back.

    at my in-laws in MD right now. Only person awake. I set up the Plex app on my father in law’s giant TV and I’m watching vintage Pigpen in Festival Express. It’s been so long since I’ve seen this. It’s prime stuff. I just wish there were more shots of Garcia’s hands, but that’s always my gripe with love concert footage. Not sure Weir could handle these tempos nowadays!!!!

    A bit off topic but the Buddy Guy performance on Festival Express is killer!

    Wow, Me and My Uncle is on fire too. This is a wonderful show for smokin’ versions of short songs. Yeah, it’s missing a big psych jam, but there are plenty of other shows for that.

    Yeah just listened to some GREAT soloing from Jerry on Slipknot.

    Jerry mixing in some slide guitar on Smokestack Lightning.

    Mighty tasty.

    In other news, Utah has cut Oregon’s lead to 8 in the Pac12 championship. You never know...

    Interesting. I'll have to check that out!

    Do you guys ever listen to the archives for a show that you own that has been officially released? Sometimes I feel the raw soundboards are just that...nice and raw and sometimes preferable for a change.

    I listen to the archives if I don't want to walk into the other room and find the CD.

    Personally, what interests me 99% of the time now are audience tapes, if that's an option. I find a lot of the Dead soundboards, particularly the farther on you get, to just be a bit too tinny and lifeless for my tastes. They're not all Betty Boards.

    Correct. Just a shame the DP was (Again) woefully incomplete. Never understood that.

    With all apologies to E72, from what I’ve heard Fall ‘71 is the hottest time for this medley.

    I jumped into this one due to your earlier post. It is quite enjoyable. Great sound with a a ton of energy. Listening to Going Down the Road Feeling Bad.

    I'm not doin' Dicks 29, but close, and I agree with you on Sugaree from the 'hotlanta, it is sweet
    nirvana that clocks an epic passing of time. As a matter of fact DiP 29 may be my favorite
    double show package. May 19th is classic to be sure, but the Lakewood show on the 21st has really
    grown on me over the years. It sort of shakes you up, and spins you around while the energy
    pours out of the speaker gear, my favorite rock and roll Dead record.

    Since I have a little of the spirit of the Force, and I am watching Rogue One A Star Wars Story at
    the moment, Daves Vol 1 was so chosen for this late evening's entertainment. Disc one is a
    set that I always love to hear; my feelings and opinion on this show are pretty high. For one,
    the recording and separation are exceptional, and it is sequenced nicely with outstanding
    performances. There is a workman-like deliberation and discipline to Jack Straw; Peggy 0
    is beautiful, I could go on, but I've said enough. It's always great to be back, cheers everyone...

    That was the type of game the Ducks usually blow. The D wasn't having any of that tonight.

    I just got home and decided to let Relisten call the tune and it gave me 2/12/70 Ungano Theater in NYC, stuck in the middle of that Fillmore East run. Considerable speculation about whether this show was performed at all and this is just some other date with a mislabeled tape box. Jerry's on the Sunburst Strat so it's from that time period. LIA and others have essays about this so I will not go on. Whatever this is, it's pretty fn good. Excellent SQ too.

    If they did perform this show is this all there is? Another unanswered question, it seems. A lengthy bit of Good Lovin' is missing, it seems to me. Early electric versions of Black Peter are my favorite. This one's sweet.

    I mostly stick to the albums on Spotify nowadays, was a while since I used the Archives (or the Relisten app in my case)

    Always preferred 5/19 but 5/22 now takes the throne.
    The booklet from the release is a great read! Typical Phil.

    Have not heard the Mosque show since 2012; might be time.

    That is the early show from 13 February 1970- Fillmore East. The "Ungano's Nightclub" rumor is old, venerable, and needs to be terminated with extreme prejudice.

    Been listening to Go To Nassau over the past few days (5/15-16 1980) ....what great shows!!! Is this era typically always that good?

    Also - got the Mars Hotel Mofi vinyl (45 RPM) and it sounds wonderful.

    That surprised me and Utah blew their opportunity, but I have an Oregon Football sweatshirt so it's
    all good. I'm and SEC-er, but there will be other very interesting games today besides the
    Atlanta showdown today. The Baylor -- Oklahoma game will decide the next tumble from
    the playoff picture, at noon here no less. Beers up...

    Musically I think it's typical of the era. As it's mixed from multitrack, the sound quality is better than most available recordings from that year.

    Remember, they left off the 'dirge tempo' Terrapin Station that preceded Playing In The Band. Editing is the key to glory.

    I prefer the 60s Rolling Stones myself, Jagger's country music affectations get under my skin after a while.

    Since I read this post earlier, I put on their first couple of albums, it's not as clear when you listen to their 70s albums what kind of influence they had over US rock bands, including the GD. Garcia and Phil both talk about how much they sounded like the early Rolling Stones when they got started, and they really do. If Warners had started scouting them a bit earlier they could've churned out 2-3 albums similar to the Stones' first few discs. Their original material maybe wouldn't have been as strong as Aftermath, but they certainly could churn out covers like the Stones. US record execs missed the boat.
    This is a good analogy for appreciating all eras of GD.
    There was an ad in the Village Voice for the show that day. Given the venue, it would seem possible they could have played it but not recorded it, even though Bear was still around.

    The usual suspects have an article on it:
