In an effort to be a completist, and because Get Back is one of my favorite Beatles tunes, I'm giving 1/28/87 at the SF Civic a spin today. Am I recommending you listen to it? Sure! It's Dead-A-Day, man!!! You may be aware that this show is plagued by terrible vocals- it's the first show in 1987, and maybe they didn't rehearse much between New Year's and that night? It's funny how the December 86 shows were so grate, and this one is such a flop. However, I must admit most of the actual playing is good. Only at Brother Esau at the time of this posting, but thus far: the Shakedown is really good (again, besides blown lyrics and verses, which is the running theme of the first set so far). Seems Jerry was more focused on making his songs sound good, because Roses is decent. Row Jimmy is nice, Jerry lays down an enjoyable solo. Healy didn't help Bob at all on Get Back, but it's fun to hear the crowd go nuts when they figure out what it is at the beginning, and after the California grass line. Don't bother with All Over Now- first time played since April 86, so it's rough. Bob might have been trying something new with it? Whatever he was thinking, it doesn't work. Alright, you can listen to the rest and make your own assessments... :listen

Forty-nine years ago today there were some folks busted down on Bourbon Street and subsequently a great song was born. What a long, strange trip it's been! :bears2

It was super hot that day, the promoter said he had a hard time getting the GD on and off the stage. I still have the tshirt, skull and roses but with a cowboy hat, it said
deadheads and cowboys. We had a nice PAPER event.

My dad and I spent the better part of the last hour dissecting Eyes of the World, and in that spirit, I am posting a 2-day-late Eyes > China Doll from 2/9/73 in Palo Alto. This show should definitely be a release, just for the fact that so many Hunter/Garcia epics were spawned on this date: HCS, Row Jimmy, TLEO, the two below, and then the bops Loose Lucy and Wave That Flag.
