yeah, it keeps rollin... finished 3-31-73 today.
i mean, He's gone>truckin>Otherone>spanish jam>RIDER...seriously.
and now im in the middle of 4-2,,, HC Sunshine>space> bobby Mcgee>WRSpre>eyes >China..... sheesh.

this tour feels alot like Phish97 when they dropped premade lists.  Theres just so much open ended exploration.
MOre than once ive checked deadbase when i  heard a segue that seemed uncommon and it was like the only time they ever did those songs back to back.

Yo what?  I knew about 4/2/73 with that wild HCS but I don't think I've listened to that 3/31/73 show before....   there was one other time I think Rider appeared in a goofy spot and I want to say it was Fall '72 but I'm not sure, and I want to say it came out of Dark Star or something big like that.  Fuck, that's going to bother me now...

You need a Deadbase, friend.
Questions like this are quickly answered.


The website was taken down years ago AFAIK and yeah, I need a physical copy haha.  I didn't think they made them anymore though.

Books are your friend.

Oh I love books.  Dude, make sure you check out that 9/24 sequence.  The jam into China Cat is SO dancey and groovey.  Phil has a bassline I might steal for a song, it's just so infection haha.  He lays on one note and just plays this incredibly bouncy, dancey rhythm. Amazing. 

Early 70's dancey Type 2 Dead is the fucking best



EDIT:   Oh man, that transition was ridiculous.  It's nearly unnoticeable.  As smooth as China is into Rider.  Wow.  Sometimes I forget how absurdly, absurdly good this early 70's stuff was; once the bad drugs really got a hold on them they took a hit on their nimbleness as a band.  But this is god-level.

Those are pretty cool.

Also like the litho they’re selling for the LST BD release at Dead.net.

Your post was bothering me, so I got out my Deadbase and learned that outside of 3/31/73 there is no electric I Know You Rider that doesn't follow China Cat until 11/10/85.

People will probably buy these, but really... save up your money and get an FD-26 or something legit.

<gainesvillegreen> now, if they could get their sound to be as good as the lights, we'd have a band hee-yah!!

Music is what feelings sound like.

you made me curious so i was looking as well. pretty crazy it looks like it only happened 3 times total outside of acoustic sets.
as for what Gumbo's thinking of, my best guess is maybe Cumberland? outta darkstar 9-27-72. but who knows, lol.

random aside: one of the other weird ones i found around that time was 2-26 Lincoln show has the only time 1/2 step came outta Eyes. I just had a feeling when i was listening to it that it sounded like a transition i'd never heard before and sure enough after looking it up it was th eonly time it happened, lol.

yeah the thing that really got me this last listen was how hot the first set actually was. i mean the 2nd set is a given, but check out Jerry/Billy locked in especially in some of those first set songs.

Slim and Matt - see my post on the previous page.  Turns out I was thinking of 9/24/72 where it goes Dark Star -> China Cat -> Rider.  I was close haha

Also, I listened to RJ's suggestion of 9/11/74 Seastones -> Eyes -> Wharf.  What a ride.  You can tell the band is puddled something fierce. 


If you haven't listened to 9/24/72 in a while... mannnnn what a show.  The 4 minutes of jam after the Drums break in Dark Star is exactly what I love most about the Dead.
