Here's a couple of tunes from the Terrapin Family Band at Phil's restaurant/bar.  I'm not too keen on the second offering, 'Into The Mystic', but I very much enjoyed the version of IKYR.  Jackie Greene's slide guitar work sounds great, maybe I was wrong about his suitability for the Black Crowes tour.

Great 'Rider'.  Like you, I'm not quite sold on 'Into the Mystic'.

How about this?  Bob reforms Ratdog.  Sort of...with Jonathan Wilson  Smiley

Well done Bob is my comment. I've been to many shows where, Americans in particular,hold shouting parties whilst the acts are actually on stage. It's particularly galling when it's a solo artist.

They spoil my 'special' recordings that I listen to also.  Wink

What ignorant arseholes.  It's why I really struggle with a lot of live music these days. I just don't understand it at all...

I'm not a blues fan, but I just love Pp's voice and harmonica in the Dead. From what i've read, he died as he lived, a hard drinking  blues man.

He wasn't quite so hard drinking towards the end.  He got very poorly indeed and wasted away.  Big shame.  He was writing his best Grateful Dead songs towards the end too.

Here is video of the complete show from Sunday's Unbroken Chain Benefit show at Lesh's gaff.

If you don't watch the whole show -and I can't think why you wouldn't - please just watch the start of the 2nd set, with 'Help on the Way>Slipknot'. Smoking!

Great sound and all free.... Cool

Don't know if this ALL of this has done the rounds. I have seen a couple of clips from the show before.

TURN IT UP!!!     Boy, can that Fogerty put on a show or what?    Grin

A US Deadhead of mine who I met at UKC in '85 and who gave me my first ever live tapes went to that gig.  She was very happy to see that, so thanks again  Smiley

Today is Phil's 73rd.  Chose a nice Box of Rain to play in his honour.

I'm just putting this one up for the Wharf Rat.  Its an ok show, but jump to the 56 minute mark to behold the best version of this song I ever had the good fortune to see.  

IMO, the best Rats were done in '77 and '78.  None of the other ones I saw in the 80s came close to those epic versions.  Every time Garcia would begin to play the distorted blissful riffs of angst in his solo between the last verses, I'd pray for him to knock it out of the park.........only to settle for a few good barks and then back into the vocals.

I had already resigned myself into believing that the best Rats were behind us - but that night would be different.  THE MAN delivered!  Cool

If anybody needed convincing of the beauty of The Dead's heritage, well here's the proof to offer.

A majestic and mellow 'Cassidy', from the Weir Here shows. This may become one of my favourite versions of the song.
