The Other Ones 1998 Tour

Post by ScottyB » Tue Aug 06, 2019 10:02 pm

I've never listened to anything from The Other Ones' first tour. Any particular shows I should check out? Also what's the general opinion of that tour? Was it well received at the time?

I love it, the Strange Remain album is GRATE. They are one of my favorite bands post-Jerry.

Most, if not all, of the 98 tour is on archive - also with soundboards of 7/24-25 the last two nights of the tour. You can also find some Youtube videos as well.

Have to say, I miss the days when Bruce did the Jerry songs.

I really wish The Strange Remain would get re-released, or at least put on Spotify. Sealed copies of the CD are crazy expensive right now. I remember when I first started getting into the Dead around 2001 I would always see copies of it at record stores. I was very curious about it but I was new to the band so I was busy buying as many Dick's Picks CDs as possible. It's weird I've never delved into them because I love Kimock and Hornsby.

I saw 2 shows, my first time hearing Kimock. I thought WOW, but why is he sitting down. I remember thinking the setlist were more adventurous than 95 GD.

I have such mixed feelings about that tour. I hadn't seen any Dead member since July of 1995, right before Jerry died. So I had so much emotion going into the show, that it was hard to really process it. I enjoyed it, but it just wasn't the same as the good old GD (to state the obvious). The music really was great and it was wonderful to dance to it again, but yet the feel of the whole event seemed very different, and that made the loss of the what I'd experienced before that much more acute. Not sure why Furthur was able to capture that part of the scene so much better than TOO or The Dead. :think

Absolutely worth a listen, though! :listen

My first significant post-Jerry experience was only 9.5 months after 8/9/95 at Laguna Seca Daze and it was also quite emotion filled. I think it may have been the first sort of significant gathering of the "family" with both Ratdog and Mickey's Mystery Box playing. The vibe was very much a cathartic experience for the crowd. Kinda like "well, we're all still here and we're gonna keep these family gatherings going regardless of what happens. Whatever the music may have been, the campsite was a great experience for all the fans that just needed to know we weren't going stop getting together. I think Bobby and Mickey and all the other musicians in attendance kinda felt it, too, the love and unity of it all.

I'd be mighty interested to hear that Ratdog set. I've honestly never even tried to find it because I just wanted that time in space to just rest in its own place and be what it was. Maybe I'll have to go dig for it....

I felt the same. I had a hard time getting into it. And no it was not the same. Kind of a weird vibe tbh. But looking back, the music was good. I should have opened my mind more I guess.

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll be sure to check out that show ASAP.

The SBDs used for The Strange Remain are so good and seamlessly mixed that it sounds like a studio recording. The liner notes don't indicate which show(s) it's mixed from. Such a pity that this lineup only lasted for a short one and done tour.
Grab a copy from eBay :listen

There's a sealed copy on Discogs for 30 bucks, I might have to pull the trigger. Usually they seem to go for $70-$100.
