    Senor (Tales of Yankee Power) from the self-titled album recorded spring of ’91 is the one that gets me every time. re: JGB covers

    DMB, is shitty, shitty music to be sure. I try to take a “live and let live” approach. If it works for you, sweet. Many people love bluegrass music. It makes me want to punch babies. Does that make others right and me wrong? I think not. By that same token, many people dig DMB. I think it’s overproduced garbage. Who’s right? We both are.

    I was into dmb for a period, around ’95-’97. Their first album, Remember Two Things is actually good. Then I got dosed at an Other Ones concert in ’98 and everything changed. First time at a concert and I haven’t listened to music the same since.

  3. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Sorry- Spring of ’90. Here’s the link on that in case y’all forgot or lost it- old school. I love this as it was my first exposure to live JGB. Still find it unbelievably profound:

  4. willowed Says:

    Play those funky neats Selecta!!

    Vegas – I agree with you. Bluegrass and Willowed don’t mix. Can’t stand it. If people like it, great, not for me.

  5. Gavinsdad Says:

    Señor is bomb. That double disc is bomb. Can’t Tell you how many times I’ve listened to that one @VW

  6. jdub Says:

    Mmmm… JGB. Is there anything sweeter. Thanks for the link Vegas. I don’t have many JGB shows but I do love some pristine Jerry.

  7. vegas wolfmans Says:

    GD- That album is permanently imprinted. Timeless. Still makes me weak in the knees when I spin it.

  8. mitch Says:

    I keep tryin to like bluegrass. Railroad earth is gonna be on my iPod when I ride the rail home for my bday.

    Still not my thing. Maybe in telluride. I could like about anything there.

  9. voopa Says:

    jdub, I loved that Ween article. I’ve wanted to party with those guys for years.

  10. vegas wolfmans Says:

    My guess:

    Lycan=Tripping Billy
    Completely= Ackbar

    You guys have been killing it lately. No time to post during the day for me, but I’ve been enjoying reading back. Keep up the good work, team!

  11. voopa Says:

    As for DMB, I never really had anything against them, just never thought they had the power of the Phish. Some good grooves. And Jeff Coffin is a big plus. There’s an HD concert of theirs that shows up on Palladia now and then, beats Shania Twain, for sure.

    Loved the Dave & Friends with Trey deal from ’05 or whenever. Their stint on SNL was great.

  12. joechip Says:

    VW- Pulling that now, thanks so much. Lost long ago, and I believe it’s out of print. There is a DVD from Shoreline in September of that year (a date scheduled to replace a GD show canceled due to Brent’s death) that I have and it covers a lot of the same material…very good.

    One of my most treasured concert memories is of seeing JGB in late 91 at the Knick. The man had a tremendous amount of soul, it came through so clearly at the JGB shows…and the scene was so much more laid back than the Dead.

  13. voopa Says:

    Word, Warfield shows were the shit. I “got it” during Reuben & Cherise at a May ’92 show.

  14. vegas wolfmans Says:

    One more plus- DMB plays instruments. I’m not even joking on this. So much of today’s popular music is a “star” or “idol” singing over shitty music produced in a studio. I’ll take the guys who can generate noise (of any kind) from a guitar, drum. or cowbell over that nonsense any day.

  15. joe Says:

    Going to have to grab that jgb. My first love. It popped my cherry good. Deal and Tangled up in blue (assuming this is the album? Haven’t looked yet). I still have the cds but they skip a ton (may have had it in my car when I kidnapped gdad?). Wish me luck on my snowy drive home from work in an hour or so. Getting nasty out

  16. joe Says:

    First time seeing a nitrous little person was at jgb hartford, ct 1991

  17. Gavinsdad Says:

    I caught hartford 91 JGB and those may 92 warfields too. Treasured memories indeed.

  18. jdub Says:

    Probably no takers here but there is a Warren Haynes sit in with dmb where they cover Cortez the Killer that has some of the most soulful guitar work by Warren you’ll ever hear. Nothing crazy but I love that song and Warren just brings it home.

    Ok, I’ve said too much tonight. Good night.

  19. Gavinsdad Says:

    Shining star and bread basket at that Hartford show @Joe. I remember like it was yesterday.

  20. vegas wolfmans Says:

    joe- Sadly, I was never able to catch JGB- my first Dead show wasn’t until ’93, but the music has always really moved me. All of it- every era- and there is a ton in circulation. Love that Shoreline DVD. I believe they’ve made some wise decisions about what to officially release- Pure Jerry and otherwise. (Particularly “Don’t Let Go” 5/21/76, Pure Jerry Volume 1 from July ’77, and that Let It Rock release w/ Hopkins from ’75). Some of my favorite music from any band ever.

  21. joe Says:

    I was really late to that party but still feel lucky to have seen it in person. Really helped to shape my worldview for the better I hope.

  22. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Gdiddy, Joe, and Joechip (not to be confused with joe)- Respect. Hope y’all realize how lucky you were to catch it and how envious this kid is…

    Also- first nitrous “little person” sighting= priceless

  23. Gavinsdad Says:

    Finished the Keef bio.

    @VW – crucial times in my life for sure.
