Hey Wharfy - listened to an absolute ripper version of Bird Song on the 1st disc of Spring 1990 a few minutes ago. I'm now on the last track of disc 1 with Brent gargling his way thru Blow Away. A bit of mic feedback bobs up on occaision during the disc but nothing too drastic. Very impressive to my ears so far. Vocals & harmonies are very good for the most part. The playing is definately 'on'. But i guess you guys know that already as yez all seem to like latter-era GD.

Dave's Picks Three.....

Standard opener of Bertha opens set one and warms up nicely as the song
goes along..nice tinkly start by Keith.There's a little tune-up before Bob
starts his country slot with a standard Me&My Uncle,Jerry is playing well
and Keith is still tinkling away,no sign of Phil but he's in there.Hesitant start
by Jerry on Ten Jed,but he's fine as the song ambles along on this standard
version.A Short Jack Straw is next on the list,with just Bob doing the main
vocals,Jerry takes a back seat with his guitar.Grate version of Loser follows
well,would say that it's one of my fav toons,it's the full version,vocally that
is,but the middle eight is not played...the longer extensions started in 72.
Sugaree is the standard 'short' one,played and sung well by Jerry,next a
17 beat start of BIODTL with the usual trimmings.
Bloody Hell!..a Grate version of Black Peter,Jerry is on top form,it's emmotional
and played really well..wonder if he had Pigpen in mind....sad.Next is
the yet another standard of Mexicali.Cold Rain & Snow is simply Grate,looks
like the slow melodic tracks have some meaning here on this show.The
Disc ends with a good Me & Bob...standard,but well played and good vocals
from Bob.
Disc Two opens with a simply stunning Comes A Time can't say anymore....
and the first set closes with OMSNight.
Hey!...Ramble starts the second set,not bad but it lacks the usual sparkle
which is missing..Cumberland Blues is next,well played and ambles along nicely.
Jerry's vocals are slightly strained on the opener of TOO,Phil pops in
with some thunder before the drum solo and picks up again after,Grate playin
from Phil he's on fire here,and some nice discord playin from Keith,Jerry is
in there flying on a higher plain...The band is cookin' on this 'one'...This is
a Grate version!!!!!and a nice roll into Deal,it's the semi-amble one after the
fast and furious TOO.A slight tune-up before Magnolia which eases into
Sunshine..both being good.Casey Jones is next with Jerry croakin' like a good
'un,not bad and it all ends with Bob doing his Johnny B. Goode......

On reflection,The Other One rescued this gig and the songs after picked up the
tempo as well.I think that Pigpen was sadly missed due to his illness as he sat
out most of this tour...maybe the songs sung by Jerry ie Black Peter and
Comes A Time had some meaning...possible.Tell you what, both songs cracked
me up,just about handled Black Peter but Comes A Time....

Dave's Picks 3 arrived in this morning's post. Very grateful to Chris for chasing it up. I would guess that they have sent replacements to everyone on the list, and those who are still waiting will receive a copy very soon.

Evening guys, just checking in after a short break down in the Med, and there have been 93, yes 93 POSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First the good news, had a grate holiday, and it's good to see Puff back : )

Now the bad news - had the email re Dave 3, and replied with a negative plus no sign of Spring yet which I hope isn't a bad sign. Reason for saying this is that Deadnet advised me in the same email that informed me that they had c*cked up my tracking reference that it should be with me no later than 12 days after posting (and that was Saturday last week).

I'll give it until Friday before contacting them I reckon, especially as Chris has stated they are staring to turn up.

I reckon a trip to Scotland sounds good sometime next year as I keep on meaning to go to the home of the amber liquid, and i don't mean lager.

WHARFY - appreciate your Cornish connections!

Chris Jones says:
Adrian, judging from the number on my 'limited edition' copy (9472/12000) I suspect that a batch that was supposed to have been sent a month or so ago was suddenly discovered and that they sent that out to those they knew hadn't received a copy yet. Mine was posted from on 7 September, so only a week ago.

Chris, my copy is no. 7016, also posted on 7 September.

Update on Spring 1990. You guys that have ordered it are in for a real treat when it arrives. I wasn't familiar with the gigs coz I didn't think i could be a fan of 1990 GD. Pharck, has that changed. The 2nd gig which is from the Civic Center, Hartford is sublime. Don't know when i'll get around to hearing the 3rd gig - definately looking forward to it.

sleep well UK.

Apollo 17 was the last Apollo mission to land men on the Moon. It carried the only trained geologist to walk on the lunar surface, lunar module pilot Harrison Schmitt. Compared to previous Apollo missions, Apollo 17 astronauts traversed the greatest distance using the Lunar Roving Vehicle and returned the greatest amount of rock and soil samples. Eugene Cernan, commander of Apollo 17, still holds the distinction of being the last man to walk on the Moon, as no humans have visited the Moon since December 14, 1972
The C-17 gives the RAF a longrange strategic heavy-lift transport aircraft that offers the ability to project and sustain an effective force close to a potential area of operations for combat, peacekeeping or humanitarian missions worldwide

The first domestic residence in the world to be lit by gas is in Redruth - installed by William Murdock in (17)94? He was also the originator of the term gasometer.

D.H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda were expelled from Zennor in 1916? He wrote much of Women in Love there. They first stayed in the local pub, then rented a cottage in spite of the writer's instant and ignorant loathing for the Cornish. Their noisy rows, suspicions about Frieda (cousin to German flying-ace von Richthofen) which included a belief her red underwear drying on the line was signalling to U-Boats, and doubtless Lawrence's nasty beard led the local rozzers to order them out in 19(17)
...The Dead slot....
First played..Cardboard Cowboy,In The Pines and Nobody's Fault (17/7/66)
He's Gone (17/4/72),Stella Blue (17/6/72),Money Money (17/5/74)

Who's booked in to the Galleon so far? I think I should register this week to stay for the night, especially if that fiendish quiz is to be fought. Was that on the Wednesday last year?

Afternoon Deadheads. It's been a while, i hope you are all well.

I'm pleased to announce that " Europe '72" with bonus tracks has just been featured as " Classic Albums from the Vault" on my page.

Hope your Sundays are being kind.

Mondo - Wharfy and I will be arriving some time Tuesday and leaving on the Friday. If I recall - the quiz was on the Thursday evening. The Galleon is still doing its 3 for 2 with regards to rooms in October - and at £ 40.00 per night (B&B) - £ 80.00 for three nights is pretty good.

DEADHEAD ALERT***********POINT OF INTEREST**************

Hi guys, I have just listened to a radio interview with Tom Paley, a lovely old New Yorker both Dylan and the Dead say he was a huge influence on their music. In fact he taught Jerry Garcia to play the fiddle and Ry Cooder to play guitar! He lives in London and plays once a month in his local pub 'The Shakespears Head' right behind Sadlers Wells Theatre, Islington. (closest tube: Angel) and is happy to talk about his life and times. If anyone is interested ring the pub 0207 837 2581 and ask when he is playing.
I hope this was of interest.
