FINALLY just picked up the Europe 72 stuff. Not the entire box set, but Volume 1 and 2. Great, great stuff. But one thing is jumping out at me, and I didn't see it mentioned anywhere else online. Does Vol. 1 play fast? Especially on the Morning Dew, that's the highest pitch I've ever heard of Jerry's voice, and other stuff here and there, the harmonies on He's Gone, it just sounds like it's played on a record player too fast and everything's a little higher pitched than usual. Has anyone ever noticed this or heard of it being an issue?
DAVE'S PICKS VOL III........right here on the listening party :)
kevin drumm - just lay down and forget it.
Yes, I do like it.
I love you, All, xo!
Duke Ellington "Small Groups, Vol.1" 6/16/37
Jimmy Smith "Home Cookin'" 6/16/59
Grateful Dead Iowa State Fairgrounds 6/16/74 a convoluted mix of Road Trips Vol.2 No.3 and what I had - the RT sounds so good. I would so have enjoyed the show W.A.A.!!!
Also, streaming round 3 from The Olympic Club, San Francisco - cool.
This was the last time that I saw Levon play, am wishing that I'd been much more determined in pursuing my desire to see a Ramble at the barn. Levon was in good voice, the band was cooking.
Writing this, I realize that a few hours earlier that day was also the last time I saw Doc Watson play.
I've had improvised variations on this infectious riff running in my head all day, and can't help wondering why Furthur isn't toying with this as a transition jam. I'd be shocked to find Jeff doesn't already know it well.
can you just imagine '73/'74 era Dead jamming with these masters? surely the most beautiful concert that never was.
we can always dream of course....
