  2. Robear Says:

    French Toast Brah!!!!!

  4. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    @ Mr C — OK, gonna have time today for one, maybe two, of the sets on that tweeprise vimeo collection

    Any recommendations? Which are the must-sees?

  5. bouncin fan Says:

    I tend to go through waves of indifference regarding the grateful deads music

    Jerry I am forever grateful of. His knowledge of multiple playing styles and knowledge as a musical historian taught me all genres of music should be explored and all are inherently psychedelic.

    The greatest hybrid rock, jazz, blues, country, bluegrass player of all time.

    Exposed me to tons of great music and how to shred sick licks over all its changes

    The man

  6. Robear Says:

    C, not sure i can handle this ‘Shining Star’ right now.


  7. Robear Says:

    too much, heading outside. love you cats.

  8. Robear Says:

    i remember the first time i saw jerry live.

    ‘whoa, this cat is one with everything, everyone’

  9. Lycanthropist Says:

    good morning BB

    happy jerry day indeed.

  10. Jtran Says:

    I wonder if Trey’s taking a break from listening to Justin Bieber on the XC road trip to listen to some Jerry today?

  11. Jtran Says:

    I hope so

  12. zzyzx Says:

    Our wedding playlist was 9/10 JGB or GDead. It was fun coming up with family friendly songs.

  13. Robear Says:

    @joe, if you want a copy of the indiocoustic set, email me

  14. Mr. Completely Says:

    “Any recommendations? Which are the must-sees?”

    I would say one of the two ’72 vids, Veneta or Tivoli; Veneta has the more sublime music but also super cheesy graphics.

    and maybe the Branford show on the last page. that’s pretty dope

    10/9/89 set 2 is great of course

    the Eyes 2nd song into 3/31/91 II is justly legendary and the Dark Star from the following night is a sweet latter-day one

  15. Mr. Completely Says:

    yeah @z our ceremony was structured around Attics of My Life

    not a dry eye in the house even among family that had never heard it

  16. BrandonKayda Says:

    Def. going to spin some GD tonight for Jerry.

  17. Mr. Completely Says:

    yeah Robear

    that really emotional Jerry stuff can be a bit much on these kinds of days

  18. BrandonKayda Says:

    3/31/91 Eyes w/ Dark Star teases is serious business – fantastic jam

  19. joe Says:

    rob, thanks man. I’ll hit you up for em after you get back from this run.

  20. butter Says:

    Happy Jerry Day All

    this day makes me think back to Jer’s final b’day show at the palace of Auburn Hills in 94. I got to sign a giant b’day card out in the parking lot. Scarlet>Fire had not been played yet that tour and everyone new it was going down on his b’day. A note was passed around to sing Jer happy birthday before Scarlet opened the second set. In GD fashion, after singin Jerry Happy B’day, they threw us a curveball with Victim>Scarlet>Fire. After Samba in the Rain we got Estimated>Drums>Space>Watchtower>Stella Blue>Satisfaction E: Liberty (which seemed to make Jerrry very happy to sing)

    This was a well above average 2nd set for this era. I remember this being one of the most hyped / anticipated shows that i got to see.

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    Great story @butter – thanks for sharing.

    I imagine seeing GD was an incredible thing

  22. butter Says:

    Nice C and Z with the GD wedding music

    My wife walked down the aisle to “If I had the World to Give”, played by my bro on flute, who learned to play with Martin Fierro

  23. joe Says:

    just started listening to that show after reading butter’s trip down memory lane. nice mickey mouse club by jerry to kick it off.

  24. El Duderino Says:

    That Greensboro show is the shiznit!!!

    There’s video of the 3/29/90 Nassau Coliseum w/Branford in circulation????

  25. zzyzx Says:

    butter – if you get married on 8/1 in a rose garden, you have a theme 🙂
