    U.S. Wingsuit, check out 5-5-82. “Lonesome Prison Blues” is what my tapes were labeled but a top to bottom excellent set of Garcia/Kahn. R&C is the encore.

  2. George W. Kush Says:

    In fact, anyone who has ears, or hearts, should listen to that set. Its just damn damn good. $$$$

    I am personally closing the nite out under my bush. just started the fabulous magic mountain 6/16/82 JGB. Another recording that helped me survive freshman year in college.

    I love listening to Jerry. I don’t do it much and have to be in the right mind frame to enjoy it. When I do it’s still magic. Dude had more soul then anyone I have ever heard sing. Guess that’s why I still have issues listening to him from time to time. Dude just spouts emotion. I could care less when he misses a lyric or a verse. It just makes what he did that much better. Listening to the first show I got it at. DC 94 2nd night. Not sure who was more out there that night, me or Jerry. Crazy night for sure.

    @GD, love the “Love in the Afternoon” from that one. Nice uptempo calypso-ish jam. A little faster than it usually sounds

    Let’s put it this way. That Dead show was the first time I officially freaked the fuck out on psychedelics and vividly remembered it. The night before was almost the same, but I was tripping so hard that I don’t remember a lot of the night. The 2nd night I remember clear as day. Every tripping thought that went through my tripping head. How the music interacted with my tripping self. The works. And to this day it all makes sense. Mind you I’m not the same person I was at the beginning of that night. How could I be?

    Miner and I saw Phil and Friends at Terrapin x roads in San Rafael last night and it ripped. in the spirit of our gracious host, who churns out reviews of Phish for all of us, i wanted to attempt a short review of last night.

    Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Jeff Chimenti, Neal Casal, and John Molo joined Phil Lesh for show 2 of a 4 night run. This is similar to the original “Q” line up that toured heavily from 1999-2008. The two differences are Neal Casal is added on guitar from the Ryan Adams band, and Chimenti on keys instead of Rob Barraco. i dig Chimenti better than Barraco, and his chops are fresh and in tune with Phil as he’s Furthur Band’s keyboarder. Neal Casal adds a rhythm guitar and another vocalist to the mix.

    first set highlights where Mason’s Children and King Solomon’s Marbles. Mason’s Children saw a fire get lit underneath Jimmy Herring, which then elevated Warren Haynes axe game. All 3 guitarists were able to mesh in an equitable form, with Herring being the clear lead most of the night. King Solomon’s Marbles was wound up ultra tight, with Molo destroying this instrumental tune’s rhythms – big time.

    set 2 was a buttery segue fest that started with Cumberland Blues featuring peppy beats and playing from Molo, with all kinds of guitar hoedown theatrics. basically every song in set 2 was given some special treatment. Phil loves to jam out of “The Wheel” and next thing we knew we were hearing a Spanish Jam with – no shit – a “scent of a mule” flavor. Things then took a turn for the tender with Bird Song > Stella Blue > Bird Song. this made for a very introspective middle portion of the set, and Warren did a ton of justice to the Jerry ballad. i get my perfect amount of soulful Warren Haynes singing when he plays with Phil, and all of his songs were quite tasteful and well placed.

    the energy got revved back up with “Help on the Way” next and the improv reached a peak for the night in Slipknot before the surprise transition into the Beatles “Tomorrow Never Knows”. Franklins. Boom. if you get confused listen to the music play.

    Warren’s “The Real Thing” was our encore and we saw him lay his soul out on the line one more time.

    Thank you Butter. That place is history. Glad you guys put in the effort.

    I assume this isn’t what you’re looking for, but Furthur played a Reuben and Cherise at Shoreline a couple years back that broke into a melted fractal jam at the end, kinda like the Bethel Boogie.

    Sick in the room (if you can call it that), but haven’t ever listened back.

  10. Stoney Case Says:

    unbelievable read, check both articles. Wild Wild West, modern day style. Murder, kidnapping, betrayal, vigilante justice

    and this one

    as usual, read the comments.

  11. phishm Says:

    Not sure if anyone has had one of those trips where everything is too much. I mean, it’s like there is this void that can’t be filled and it’s your only duty to fill it. Or something like that. Anyway, this night in Deer Creek was one of those nights. Not a great time in my life and the Jesus Christ’s weren’t helping. What amazed me about the Dead on this night, and esp. Jerry was how they brought those that were lost back. I know it sounds weird, but there was just this vibe in the air that made it seem like no matter what we are all fucked. Probably just me, but I just had this amazing feeling of doom. Once Morning Dew started up this feeling immediately vanished and nothing but encouragement and positivity was all I felt. Weird night for sure. It was the most powerful thing I had ever felt and it seemed to swell with the universe. Crazy night for sure. Good show IMO.

    Phil stream. Love herring. Didn’t he have beef with someone and that’s why he’s not in p&f more?
    Better fry that beef and eat it. Dude is awesome.

    Also love Chimenti. Feel he fits in well and can go off when needed.
    Does Phil have a new bass? It’s black with red knobs. Resembles a modulus but can’t tell by the headstock.

  13. jig Says:

    Stoney- that shit is cray cray. So Hum keeping it real real. Comments even crazier when they start talking about shooting each other.

  14. bob dylan Says:


    Were there tix outside? My lady and I have stayed back this run for lack of tix. Thinkin bout going for the free show soon or a ticket show if randos have stubs outside.

  15. bob dylan Says:

    Having a blast on couch your tho!!

    Set list could have been written by me and t so far. All hits. Wish we were there.

    Casal showing us what’s up in this viola

  16. butter Says:

    yea, i was noticing Phil’s new bass bobby d. pretty cool looking. yes it looked like a modulus to me.

    where do you stream Phil at?

  17. butter Says:

    didnt see any tix. the way they do the ticketless thing, you basically have to be someones +1, which is possible. they use ipad mini’s and have your name on a list

  18. bob dylan Says:

    7 bucks. Phil is the man. Knows people are shut out. Why charge a lot? Doesn’t cost a lot. 7 is great.

    Space jam right now


  19. jig Says:

    Butter, Bobby D. read Stoneys link, Indiana Boys.

  20. butter Says:

  21. bigjig Says:


  22. bob dylan Says:

    Damn Jig and Robear Shits pretty scary up there. Wild West.

  23. bigjig Says:

    Feeling a little like fucking Matlock after reading all the comments and articles on Murder Mountain. Real life Humboldt Dateline NBC. Eye-opener for the newbies who think the Nprth Coast is all fun and games.

  24. butter Says:

    there we go, now i know its u for sure

    jumped on for Shakedow. 7$ price of 1 beer there. (actual there 6)

    sounds so different thru the sbd than in the room. much more instrument separation. Casal taking more leads than last night already.

  25. bob dylan Says:
