This is a fantastic Althea! From Philly Spectrum 8/30/80:




And this Keith and Donna show (including a hot horn section and Jerry as well) from 8/30/75 in SF is pretty dang good. Check out Train to Cry featuring JG, Can’t Turn You Loose by Keith and Donna, her belting out Strange Man, and JG’s Tough Mama. Billy K’s on drums and Matt Kelley is on harmonica too!

Slap me silly for not posting this a few days ago. Scher with a classic intro to the band, The Other Ones, sets off a heater: 8/25/00 at Shoreline. This incarnation of TOO is comprised of Bob, Mickey, Billy, Bruce, Alphonso Johnson, Mark Karan, and Steve Kimock. Capped off with a dreamy Banyan Tree (some good shots of Bob not taking himself seriously) and funky China Cat, this show features Bonnie Raitt along the way.


Jam > Playin in the Band > She Belongs to Me@ > Playin Jam > Jack Straw, West L.A. Fadeaway*, Baba Jingo, Scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain, Preacher in the Ring, Cassidy, Rainbow's Cadillac*, St. Stephen > The Eleven > Drumz > Banyan Tree > Playin Reprise, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider
E: Black Muddy River*
*- with Bonnie Raitt

Happy 45th to the first Shakedown! 8/31/78 at Red Rocks also features the debut of Heart of Me, Donna’s second solo tune with the band.


And now my old buddy, the Dead is coming for you. Jerry plays strong and fast as Samson in action on Samson, Playin and NFA. And that's just the beginning of the plain facts, Jack.

9/2/80 was the craziest twisted night for myself and gf who was attending Syracuse. We took the bus to Rochester and realized there was no bus after the show till morning. Without going into too much detail, let's say there was one particular paper that EVERYONE was doing which produced a type of group mind think that expoded after Drumz. First a standard space develops into an amazing improvised melody then they make everyone happy with the rarely played Iko and then BAM the Dew hits everybody like a Cat5 hurricane, i was nearly knocked off my feet. I had an experience that i will not go into here, but we walked out and immediately got a ride in a van to Syracuse, major eyelid movies on the ride home, we stayed up all night.
Furthur, BEW is GRATE in Boise 9/2/83:

I like the lick Jerry plays throughout the beginning of Big RR Blues 9/2/83. I also love the LLR > Deal, Estimated through the jam before drums. A+

ESPECIALLY love Bob during a lot of the show, but highlights to me are LLR, Eyes, and the jam that follows...and WHAT IS THAT IN DRUMS? :listen This sounds so good, it's like you're on stage! WOW! :shock: :smileys-passing-joint
Also sounds like Bob is developing a song from the start of space and throughout. Also maybe a little Heaven Help jam?!
Love what Bob is putting down around 4-6 min on Slipknot from Boise too:

I humbly encourage you to check out a smoker from 35 years ago today, Cap Centre 9/3/88. Highlights include Healy's chipmunk work on Bob's vox during a hot Big River, which nearly sounded like Mexicali at the start. Chipmunk vox affect Box and Victim as well. Love the last few minutes of the Bird Song jam and how it (literally) rolls into the chorus reprise. This is the final performance of Ripple- first time by GD since Amsterdam 10/16/81 and the first time electric since Fillmore East 4/29/71. Aside from those stats, it was a fulfilled Make-A-Wish request.
