Listetened to a chunk of 7/3 on Sirius while driving around a few weeks ago, I still say it was an awesome show and the best of all five.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I haven't listened back yet and didn't attend Santa Clara (watched though) and have to agree about the Friday show.

What source(s) do people recommend for re-listening to the Chicago shows?

Well, the clip with Trey playing with Phil before the shows were pretty meh.
And we all know how those shows turned out!
You guys still cranking those FTW concerts a lot or what?
it's awesome to finally see you kinda butt hurt/defensive about some music for the first time in like 3-4 years on this board. 

I don't think (at least I'm not) questioning Mayer's ability to play the music.  That 45 second clip he runs Trey off the stage, and that pains me to admit that, but he's def doing shit Trey at 51 cannot do.  I think the only thing up in the air is if he finds himself in some hauntingly dark space of improvised music like a dark star, what's he going to do?  At least I am wondering that.  Even those Phil shows where he sat in, he kinda took a back seat once the music really took off in an unknown direction, and as for the composed parts, he handled himself really well.  Regardless of what else I will see before they hit here, I'm going to the Atlanta show.  I'm curious enough to be drawn to see these guys play together. 

Can we talk about the Dead?  I'd love to talk about the fucking Grateful Dead, for once, can we please discuss the Grateful FUCKING Dead!?!?!?!

The FOB Pasternak recordings on etree. I've posted the links to them in one of the threads.

Thanks SF.  I've favorited them on my etree mobile app and will give them a run through when I have a chance.   :music:

uh... wut? I'm not hearing anything that outshines Trey in that clip...

I definitely question Mayer's ability to play the music of :syf:  Sure, he can rip some blues but I've never heard him do anything similar to what the dead do/did. I feel like he'd be totally lost in any deep typeII jams.... Which makes me think there won't be much jamming with this Dead incarnation. Just Bobby and John playing some blues rock.

Not much mention of Oteil.
Is he gonna do the catalog justice?
Phil was the anchor in that GD lineup with Trey.
It's just gonna be weird.
As much as I love John Mayer, this whole thing doesn't appeal to me despite having those 2 MSG shows close to home.

Couple points:

Mayer sounded ok when he played with Phil a little while back. He was, however, playing third fiddle much of the time.

Otiel is great. Not sure how he'll do though. Those are some big nerdy shoes to fill.

That said, after watching the Billy with Weir set followed by Phil with Carlos from Lockn, Phil is the guy that pushes the X-factor far more than The Other Guys (with the exception of Mickey).

Oteil's take on the catalog will be interesting to hear. He's got such a different style than Phil.

Interesting, yes.

But it's not moving me to buy the ticket.

A clue of how Oteil will sound is likely in the KBM shows from a few years ago.
Otiel's great - he is no Phil but then nobody is. Agree with RJ that Phil is the FORCE.

I think Mayer played a Dead tune at Crossroads (2014?) and it was actually pretty good. I think I have a copy on my accessory HD - I'll try to dig it up this w/e if anyone wants to hear it.

ETA - wasn't a GD tune, but a jam from a GD tune in one of his songs. I'll try and dig it up.

anyway, the post GD projects that I like best are the ones that sound most UNlike the GD - ie much of the Phil and Friends, JRAD, some of the Jazz is Dead. I don't think this one will fill the bill for me
