Jeezuz man! 110 shows!?

I have a few Dead errands - that show attached to the 50th Anniversary debut, and once it comes on Spotify, the show on the 50th Anniversary American Beauty are starters along with those ‘87 Hartford shows.

On a side note, I randomly heard again That’s It for the Other One from Fillmore West ‘69 - I was blown away all over again.

Of all the many things I listened to so far, I have to say Ladies and Gentlemen had to be my favorite. I can’t think of a single release in all of music that fits my taste better than that.


That is a truly fantastic release; it is one of my favorites too.

The Hunter's Trix series really heightened my appreciation for the post-1979 stuff -- not every matrix is great, but some of them are perfect (the Frost '82 shows I linked to earlier were from this series). Except for '89-'90, the Mydland era and beyond is not very well served by the official releases, so these shows really helped plug some gaps for me :thumbsup:

I listened to American Beauty again today, but the 50th Anniversary edition with the show from the Capitol Theatre from 2/18/71. Only in the first set so far but it sounds great. It Hurts Me Too was killer.

Less journey more fun: I popped in and listened through the first show of the Europe ‘72 tour - London, England 4/7/72. Maybe I listen to too many Pearl Jam shows but I was expecting them to be maybe a little tight or rusty heading into this in that kind of waking up and stretching their musical limbs - nope. This show was absolute fire. Pretty much nailed everything. I really like Chinatown Shuffle, the China > Rider here (it’s been a while since I heard a Dead show through), there was a real desperation in the character in Loser here that just caught me. Mr. Charlie was either an alternate arrangement or I just haven’t heard it in a real long time but it was really cool. Beat It on down the Line was spot on. Tennessee Jed was real solid. Playing in the Band before it became cumbersome. The whole second set here is perfect Dead. Anyway I highly recommend this, and look forward to continuing the tour as I can.

Listened to the next night today, even better than the first. This is 4/8/72 again in London. Next Time You See Me was really great, as was Deal, Mr. Charlie, Good Lovin’ (with Pigpen of course), Truckin’ Hurts Me Too...epic Dark Star into Sugar Magnolia... just a great set from start to finish. Nothing like jumping in again after a break and diving right into one of their peaks as a live band where you can hear them pulling more jazz elements out but still rooted in the blues. Love this band.
