I'm thinking you must have either been the guy to our right or the guy right behind us I remember a bunch of us making friends and having a great night. Every show I saw after this, I enjoyed watching the folks in the front interacting with band and remembering how it felt when I was there myself. I clearly remember this one. Spent a sleepless tripping night on somebody's motel floor, listening to the most incredibly loud, abrasive snoring I'd ever heard. Not so great for my friend who got busted by a long-haired undercover cop wearing a dress.
But yes, I do remember. Samson and Eyes appear on Dick's Picks 17, Please support the artist and their commercial releases I was so excited to hear the filler that I didn't listen to the rest of the show,but it looks killer! It was great to be young, stoned and on the road!!! Just when you thought they brought it up to the peak, they broke through the ceiling and made a new peak. It is probably our blessing that these small, insignificant glitches are present on some of the best shows the boys played. The band is playing very loud later on such as on Johnny B. The Eyes on the first night is one of the best you will find. For me the rest of the tour never quite reached the level here. One even had a notebook.
It was one hell of a run in Greensboro. I thought it was funny. There are a couple glitches throughout the recording, check the. Let's just say I have to make a new list for Tuesday's show because they played a set list I felt was made for me. It was like a drug bazar outside. I thought it was Bertha at first. As tides change, we've started coming around with each other more so than before.
I specifically remember that my friends and I were going berserk during the end-jam of Terrapin because Mickey was pointing at us with his drumsticks. This show, though, had an extra level. The band is clearly having a great time and John, Jeff and Oteil are adding a new life to the shows. Bruce takes a little bite but the rest of the guys seemed hip for drums. And me and my car made it home just fine. I've been to tons of shows in my time and only one other time have I seen a band just own a crowd like that and that was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
Man, This was one of my favorite shows that I attended! They didn't know what I was talking about. Otherwise, shows like this would probably be relegated to Dick's Picks Land. This is mostly during the early portions. I had seen the Dead for a few years by this time, but I never had the fortune of being right up in front until these Greensboro shows. Too bad they dont let us vote on releases,or we may have had hampton '89 by now! Some old friends and some new friends in the area had gotten into their heads that really wanted a Hey Pocky Way, so we began calling out to Brent from the beginning of the show. See you all next show!!! The crowd went nuts and the energy was just intoxicating. He played the tape out loud while we waited for our copies.
Standing on the moon is strong! Would get five stars, but the first set brings it down to a generous 4. Also, a little very minor static of some sort during Samson. We were, and remain, huge Brent fans I even got to meet him backstage at Cal Expo later this same year. Each song just hit me like a freight train, and I lost myself in the best Eyes I have ever witnessed. During Space there is a right channel 'tick' toward the middle before it fades for the next disc. I believe the woman dancing was Manasha Matheson, Jerry's girlfriend at the time and Mother of his child. The first set started with a bang and pretty soon the tribal stomp overtook me.
If you haven't been, it's definitely worth checking out. Southern shows were so much different than the northeast which were so much different than the west. I am grateful for soundboards now ,but although my aud tapes have long since wore out they are worth seeking out too ,and I hope someone out there uploads them on here. Listen to the end of the Playin' jam. This is a strong show with a very intense 'other' ingredient which elevates the whole.
Mississippi Half Step, Wang Dang Doodle, Friend Of The Devil, Queen Jane Approximately, West L. My memory differs from yours slightly. Goode, and that is causing some overmodulation. Same goes to anybody else listening. Not completely sure, but I think so. The latter parts definitely are not as sonically pure as the earlier parts. Needless to say, this event kept us all very stoked throughout the second set.
I honestly think he thought 'screw it' and just kept his energy up even though their's was flagging. Well, Brent didn't pay any of us much mind during set one. I met Roscoe, who was delving into taping for the first time at this show and told him about the tune. How y'all doin' -- sweet tea -- The Dollar Store and the Waffle Aweful? Goode filler is way punchy. It wasn't the greatest Peggy-O I'd seen or heard. Everyone around me were huge fans and half the people were tracking the set list. I thought the first set however, was just mediocore for this time period.
Figured I'd drop in here and mention the physical aspects of the recording and the board mix as I've noticed them so far since most everyone has stuck to music reviews on this one. I always thought these would be a great vault release. . Probally my favorite shows attended,except omni'90. To Tweek: This first Touch was 9-15-82 Cap Centre. Can we do this every day? Those 2 days in Greensboro were a great memory. I hope everything with John's voice turns out okay.
