I found an error in Deadbase 50, where do I claim my prize?

4/16/72 has Me & My Uncle in the middle of The Other One, not Uncle John's Band...

Love that show!

read this cool blurb on Jay Blakesberg photo page

Quote
37 years ago today (09.06.80), Grateful Dead summer tour ended at the Fairgrounds in Lewiston, Maine. It was the "4th year in a row east coast end of summer Labor Day Concert". It was an epic summer. The shows were smoking hot with Brent in full stride, and copious amounts of the best psychedelics anywhere. That summer I saw the Dead from Maine to Florida, San Diego to Alaska and everywhere in between! There were a tight knit group of us that traveled together, slept together, ate together, and had the grandest adventure that anyone could possibly imagine. It was "OUR Summer of LOVE". There were still only a small number of Deadheads traveling for tour at that point... In Alaska we hung out during set break (10PM) on Summer Solstice in the parking lot of the small high school where they played with the light of the day still in our eyes. In between San Diego and Los Angeles we went to Disneyland and had a true psychedelic ride without even getting on a ride! In Portland, Oregon while the band played "Fire on The Mountain", Mt. St Helens was erupting and volcanic ash floated down on our bedazzled brains as we exited the arena. In between June West Coast and August East Coast tour we lived in the Haight Ashbury. We hallucinated in the Panhandle, strolled the Haight, parties at friends houses in the neighborhood, day trips to Berkeley (Nobody for President Rally), hitchhiked to Yosemite, and in there was also a run of Jerry Garcia band shows in SF and the east coast. It was a magical time filled with magical adventures that defined who we are today. If Grateful Dead time travel existed, I would go back to June 1, 1980...and leave on September 7, 1980...We are so Lucky! Listen to the River sing sweet songs to rock our souls...

that haul from Spokane, WA to Anchorage, AK is epic ~ 45 hours. 5 days off between though.

Yeah, I think the same blurb is in his book, which is a MUST own imo.  A ton of the pix are from the 80 run.  It was that blurb that encouraged me to dig deeper (IE listen to every show) from that period he describes.  I was already well familiar with the May 80 run which is equally impressive (Portland, ME is my personal fave and Hartford from the day before rules too).  Don't sleep on October '80 either.  1980 is a real sleeper/underrated year imo.  Anyway, that book rules and since getting it a few years ago have met Jay a couple of times.  Awesome dude.  I think the book is called Between the Dark and Light. A+ stuff.

Also, the JGB tour that he talks about is the best too.  Love the Ozzie keyboards.  The Calderone Theatre show (immortalized as the bonus CD on the Keene '80 After Midnight CD) is possibly my all time fave JGB show.  Brings me back to a way simpler time in my life.

So today at work my boss was listening to GD on Sirius radio and he called me into his office to ask who was singing Mama Tried (it wasn't Bobby), Sirius listed the version of Mama Tried as being from The Cow Palace 12/31/76. I didn't recognize the voice and when I went back to my desk I went to the Archive and listened to the show. The version that was playing in his office was not the one from 12/31/76...

Was there ever a guest singer for Mama Tried?

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

I feel like they played it with the New Riders at some point. Does it sound like one of those guys and is there pedal steel?

Damn, I forgot about The New Riders. I'll have to dig into that and see if it was Dave.

Got a review request for this band's debut single (which is pretty cool). I liked their funky take on Shakedown Street.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.
