From two years ago on this day, Bob and Phil at Sound Summit in Marin County 9/9/17. I am not sure I have ever seen/heard this. Check it out:




The lineup for Saturday’s Phil Lesh & Friends set saw Weir and Lesh joined by pianist Holly Bowling, guitarist Ross James and drummer Alex Koford.

Yes. I caught this after my summer vacation in Vermont with my family , just a week and half after this concert was performed. For those that know my Dark Star series , this is where it started for me. I was very inspired by this performance and I noticed that Bob had the exact same acoustic that I own. He was playing (at the beginning of DS an old Martin 00-17 and I have the same one from 1947. My first DS has that guitar in the recording , Dark Star - Phase 1.

That was in September of 2017. Exactly 2 years ago now. Wow! DS's do not grow on trees daily. They spawn slowly overtime. Each one ideally should be a treasure in a perfect Universe. :bears2

Here's one I don't think I've heard. Not that I remember anyway, but it looks GRATE! Phil and Friends (Jason Crosby, Karl Denson, Jackie Greene, Eric Krasno, Neal Evans, Alan Evans, Shady Horns) 9/15/16 at Coney Island:

10 years ago yesterday was the debut of Furthur, the band that brought us Terrapin Nation Deadheads together, and catalyst for this site! Of course, we can't forget our friend Chester and the original Furthur Forum, so this post is dedicated to the true beginnings of TN!

These three shows have always been some of my favorites of the band. I have to admit it's (IMO) due to John K's playing still being very reminiscent of Jerry, from his longtime membership in DSO. These shows SOUND like the Dead, more than "The Dead" or "The Other Ones" ever did, and I loved them from the very first listen. Here's to the decade anniversary of Furthur's birth:

I'd be remiss if I left out the 9/21/72 Philly extravaganza! Dick's Picks 36 - the last one - come for the Dark Star Dew, stay for the rest!!!

Another hot one from Furthur, a little bit later in their career: Red Rocks 9/22/13, with Branford in set 2! I think some people here really love this one ;) :sunshine

A year before our last post, Furthur 'stole' a page from Phish's playbook - with a STEALYOURFACE setlist! This was the only time they played You Win Again, and I don't recall any core 4 playing it since. From 9/23/12 at Red Rocks:



and since Samson and Delilah was apparently omitted from that video:
