TTFF: Rollin’ 40 Deep

8.28.2012 – Chaifetz Arena (Jeremy Renda)

Rounding out 2012’s Top 40…

40. “Sneakin’ Sally > Ghost” 7/6 II, Saratoga Springs, NY

The meat of SPAC’s first night, one of the strongest two-setters of Leg One.


39. “Piper” 9/2 II, Denver, CO

Dick’s “Piper” is short, sweet and to the point.


37. “Golden Age” 6/25 II, Atlanta, GA

A dirty, underrated jam of Leg Two.


36. “Down With Disease” 6/22 II, Cincinnati, OH

Before this jam was inexplicably lopped for “Guelah Papyrus,” it was all glory.


35. “Seven Below” 6/23 II, Burgettstown, PA

Though an afterthought to Star Lake’s massive “Mike’s Groove,” this jam is quite unique and noteworthy.


34. “Twist” 7/4 II, Wantagh, NY

This mellow, ambient jam provided the improvisational centerpiece of July 4th.


38. “Light” 6/16 II, Atlantic City, NJ

The band is totally hooked up in the first “Light” of the year, and it was laced with “Manteca.”


33. “Light” 7/8 II, Saratoga Springs, NY

A spectacular version which, in retrospect, I think is better than the “Piper” later in the set.


32. “Golden Age > Prince Caspian” 9/1 II, Denver, CO

The beginning-of-the-set lead in to the Denver “Light” with smoking playing throughout.


31. “Chalk Dust Torture > What’s the Use?” 8/25 II, Atlanta, GA

This outstanding “Chalk Dust” foreshadowed what would go down at Dick’s a week later. This jam certainly should have been in the previous ten jams if not higher.
