Happy birthday to Ron "Pigpen" McKernan! Lifting a glass in his memory, and enjoying his and the band's prowess at a Florida theme park on 3/24/70*:

*-this show could also be 3/23/70, and it could have been the day they finished writing Truckin.

:beer_cheer
As for my on this day selection, the completist in me wants to listen to 9/8/93 in Richfield today; it's a show I haven't listened to before. So far I am enjoying the Stranger opener- and the rest of set 1 is no slouch. Even the Peggy-O is nice! And I don't see much in the way of Jerry not being present. Foolish has some nice reverb on Jerry's guitar. Despite the naysayers, this is a pretty decent show. Black Peter out of the SOTM jam was a pleasant surprise! :listen Enjoy!

100 pages of Dead music?! Fantastic! I try not to repeat shows I have posted on other "this day's", if you've noticed; browse the pages to see if your favorites have been posted on other days in other years. Much to sift through, but I promise it's worth it! And thank you to everyone who adds their own GD-related picks alongside mine!

Today's throwback to 1974 is the middle of a three-night run in London, 9/10/74, complete with a Dark Star > Dew:

Happy birthday Mickey!!!

From his 42nd birthday, 9/11/85 in Oakland, here’s a pretty grate show. BIODTL is 42 beats (which I’m sure is why Bob says he’s amazed after the first verse). In fact the entire first set is a bop, nice and upbeat. I loved the BIODTL > Promised > TN Jed. Jerry’s on it here, although set 2 is plagued with some forgetful Jerry on Touch and Terrapin lyrics, but it’s all played well. The Stella is grate.

Come on honey, let me sing em away - Keith's contribution to the canon is an enjoyable tune, a nice Saturday morning bop. One of its few plays came on 9/12/73 at William and Mary. This show features Martin Fierro and Joe Ellis on horns for that and Let it Grow.

Fine show here! Grate Big River > Cumberland and Victim > Scarlet Fire. In fact the entire second set is fire. 9/13/91 at MSG:

Ok I'm here for a Bertha set closer! This is a grate show, I'd not previously heard it. Nice Phil bombs, especially in the China Rider. :listen 9/14/82 at UVA:

Another almost-missed-it post, but here's another Other Ones show from the 2000 fall tour with Bob, Mick, Bill, Hornsby, Kimock, Karan, and Alphonso Johnson. 9/15/00 in Boston opens with Dark Star > Terrapin, features the only performance of a song called Gasoline Alley (originally by Rod Stewart), and a nice pairing of Wharf Rat > Valley Road (Hornsby), which they paired for the entire tour.
