    7-4-00 SBD From Live Bait 04, but also includes the monumentous Twist before … so fast forward to 17:00 if you don’t want the foreplay and contextual part. So good.

  2. Kaveh Says:

    @vape: nice…might have to hit that up later today.

    @JG: if you don’t have to wipe yourself after the opening Bucket -> Shakedown, then there is something wrong with you. 🙂

  3. George W. Kush Says:

    nice upgrade on the Slave MIA.

  4. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Halfway through the Shakedown & so far so good. Looks like you’re in the clear brohanni.

  5. Kaveh Says:

    @JG: And one of the stonger LTG’s.

  6. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Quick pause on 6/22/91 for that sweet sweet Twist Slave. Love this place.

  7. George W. Kush Says:

    In unrelated news,

    Kelly Slater dropped Quicksilver after 23 years of sponsorship. To me, thats like Trey giving up Languedoc axes. Sorta a big deal in the surfing world. Although, ZQK has had a nice run as of late and is only off $0.04 today.

  8. Kaveh Says:

    @JG: And set II is a masterpiece!

  9. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Return to top to bottom treatment is imminent Kaveh. Just hitting this Slave then it’s back to Solider Field ’91. Beaut of a Slave to be sure. Arty’s numbero uno.

    stuck on the GD link posted this a.m. also. hot indeed. then the twist and T.U.B.E.

    late to the issue, but my understanding is Bobby and Donna definitely fancied each other — as evidenced by their chemistry on several Looks Like Rain’s — but even Keith was willing to put up with it to stay in the band. That is, until Garcia caught Keith pilfering some important “documents” in Jerry’s ever-present briefcase and threw them out of the band as a result, leaving Keith the ultimate two-time loser.

  11. roberto luongo Says:

    I’ve also heard that Bobby and Kimock have issues cuz Kimock was banging the screaming back up singer during the short lived HEart of Gold Band he played in right before Keith died.

    figured she had to be in the band for some reason. certainly wasn’t her singing.

  12. George W. Kush Says:

    interesting the briefcase story. found some other info here about refusal to play electric keyboards:

  13. roberto luongo Says:

    Weir admitted that his penchant for playing slide guitar in 1978 stemmed from frustration at Keith’s unwillingness to play organ, and Weir tried to make up for it with the slide.

    -wow. if this is true WTF. goes to show. now band was a nuts as the GD

    our keyboard player won’t play anything but piano. think I need to start playing terrible slide guitar inside.

    hammond organ/ terrible slide guitar. same difference yo.

  14. MiA Says:

    Gorge ’98 Tube – Slave. Stupendous. So gentle and gorgeous, and page just plays the lullaby keyboard. So glad this made it to LB ’09

    Could definitely go for another LB soon.

    Mann ’93 – Glide, Maze (ripping ’93 stylee)
    6/24/95 – Bowie!
    6/25/95 – Mike’s!

  15. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Another quick pause for the cause. MiA droppin dropbox Slave bombs this AM. Me likey!

  16. bobby weird Says:

    RL, no joke. slide over piano… good call weir…

    Briefcase story in Brightman’s book, a la carol, if memory serves.

  17. roberto luongo Says:

    12/31/94 was one of the first shows a late set Slave really hit me

    really gorgeous version.

    but Slave really is what a guitar does when it plays itself. didn’t Trey write it in 6th grade or something?

  18. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Need to pick that one up for summer reading. Thanks for the reminder booby.

  19. roberto luongo Says:

    8/17/96 Clifford Ball is def a typical custy version that I remember thinking was hot

    I’m no arty rankin

    wish I could remember shit better

  20. bobby weird Says:

    strangely, she includes these long diatribes of the evolution of various political views (i guess that was her thing), which i skipped, but there some good nuggets in there as well.

  21. roberto luongo Says:

    maybe some Sonny Landreth slide instead of Piano (whom I can’t wait to catch in NOLA. what a fuckin beast)

    but that squealing, pitchy, nails on chalkboard shit that came out of Bobby’s guitar

    to think that was a better tone than any musical instrument goes to show just how insane the Madonna loving jort rocker really was.

  22. garretcorncob Says:

    I physically cringe when I hear the opening bars of Little Red Rooster…

    That’s all I have to add to Bobby slide talk…

  23. MiA Says:

    I can’t imagine someone loving one of those etheral, quiet floating Hood jams, and not feeling a hot sister attraction to Slave.

    It would be like loving Antelope and not getting in Gins?

    10.30.98 to the cans this morning. Sharp work by Troy. Overcoming how tired I am from watching the Not Important Tournament last night. Need the pick me up.

  24. roberto luongo Says:

    really MIA?

    Hood seems to be way more an improv vehicle. if I’m looking for best Trey solos 93-97 HOods would be dozens.

    Slave sounds good when spun but they just run through chords and arpeggios. never really much improv at all.

    Hood is a simple structured major key’d peaked out bliss jam that was perfect for Troy to showboat and get all bliss’d out over.

    Slave you just run over the chords. don’t get me wrong. can sound great with a full head but pretty simple musically. no matter what version.

    Slave is more of a feel to me. Hood had insanely hot solos.

  25. MiA Says:

    True RL. Should be clearer.

    Slave is not a jam vehicle to me at all. Like hearing a well placed Roggae maybe? And there are (far too many in 3.0) Hood’s that aren’t jam vehicles either. They’re blissful and nice, and a little peaky, but if you listened to 10 3.0 Hoods in a row, you’d get bored of it.

    Probably 100% true of Slave. Which is why I think Shapiro dropped so many of them as Twist > Slave or Tube > Slave.

    Or maybe since Orpheum ’94 I used Slave to close my eyes, and let it take my heart rate down a few notches and try to put the rainbows back in my head.
