Blackjack!: 21(now 24) Once-Only Dark Star Pairings

So it's New Years Eve at my 52nd show. First third set. They play Dark Star. My head explodes.  I am thinking what are they going into? It's uncharted waters, and I'm thinking 1978, St Stephen, but they turn 15 minutes later in Bertha, an "inspired choice" according to Light Into Ashes from my prior post.

I am certain this interesting list will need to be modified, but this topic has been twirling around all head. A few years back, I was listening to the first Keith Godchaux shows in Fall 1971 (which he really really shined in my opinion right out of the gate). The set lists for these shows suggest that the boys were slowly breaking him in, with sets one and two both consisting of the mainly single songs.
However, starting in the first first shows of the tour in October, there was usually a Dark Star or That's It For The Other One that evolved into a more typically first set song (Me & Bobby McGee, for example).

So I sat down last night and made a list from mi original Deadbase 11 (and the Kindle Deadbase 50 on my phone), of all the Dark Star partners that only occurred one time.  My one Dark Star in 80 attempts is one of these (Dark Star->Bertha) from New Year's 1981.

I loved back in the day listening to tapes for the first time and Dark Star made one of these unexpected pairings   New Speedway, .Half Step, Deal!  A lot of these surprise me, only one goes into Truckin, one in He's Gone.

I welcome corrections. (Thanks spring mountain high and Quincy, twice on archive for three more) Since its Saturday, I'll put the music files here.  Sorry dont have all flacs on these.

Some Of My Favorite Grateful Dead Blog Posts

Grateful Dead Listening: Lewiston, Maine Post





I'm sad this blog isn't updated any more, but the effort that went into this blog was inspiring. The writing is priceless here and one of my top-3 shows I attended:

Strip away time. Erase the day of the week, the month, the year. Tumble into a kaleidoscope of color. Pass through the membrane. Be the membrane. There never was a membrane. You're back at a Grateful Dead show.

When they did it well, it was all about the evaporation of everything that grounded you to the here and now, yet allowed you to slip all the way into the here and now just the same. The Dead's musical muse simply was. It didn't evolve so much as slowly turn, ever-present in the light. A telltale sign that the band was coaxing the muse out came with the strong impression that you were no longer hearing music being played right now. More often, the muse simply sounded like the Grateful Dead, echoing backward and forward, un-tethered to "today."

Here's a show with the opportunity to echo as far forward as it could backward. Played in 1980, it stands at the center of the Dead's 30 year career.  This is too coincidental a reason, I know, but the show is indeed packed with muse-infused moments. On 9/6/80 the music played the band.


Corry342's Lost Live Dead: First Show Oakland Auditorium (Kaiser)

Here is a Top-Shelf historian at the top of his game (I saw these shows and 12 more here including New Year run's in 80, in 81, and the two Etta James shows in 82):

For the next seven years, both as the Oakland Auditorium and the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center, the building was the primary host to the Grateful Dead's New Year's celebrations, and other shows besides (save for the years that the building was being remodeled). As the Grateful Dead moved from being Dinosaur-like fossils from a bygone era to heroic survivors of the Classic Rock genre, the shows at Oakland Auditorium were Exhibit A



Another pro, a mentor.  Here is a great tale of the only show I ever made a recording at:

 Starting with McCoy Tyner's "Sama Layuca", they drift into a very spare space for a couple of minutes before Garcia starts picking some beautiful melodic stuff that morphs into one of the early Jerry versions of Dear Prudence. I used to say that the melodic passage contained Jerry's most beautiful stuff since the 2/18/71 "beautiful jam" between Dark Star and Wharf Rat, but I eschew such hyperbole here.


Maybe the all-time expert, Light Into Ashes,  In one of his million highly researched posts, he brings the Dead fan, so much information and insight.  I love knowing, as mentioned in my Dark Star last week, that my 12-31-81 Star sucked in comparison, but was still fun and still Dark Star :):

So this Dark Star shifts gears now and then (like around the 12-minute mark, though it doesn't go anywhere particular). The second verse is delivered with a lot of punch; and unusually, the Dark Star jam continues for a little bit after the verse while they figure out what to do - Bertha is a novel choice, kind of inspired.

I'll add more but these are some of the best. Note all these particular exempts are from shows I attended. I'll add music links as usual.

Best of the My Unreleased 1977 Shows

In 1976, at 17, I saw 3 Grateful Shows. At 18, like Janis Ian at 17, I learned the truth.

I was lucky, these are my 1977 Grateful Dead shows:






Phillips Academy Saturday's Escapes

April 23, 1977
April 30, 1977   OFFICIALLY  RELEASED AS DOWNLOAD SERIES 1
May 7, 1977
May 28, 1977  OFFICIALLY  RELEASED AS TO TERRPAIN

Bowdoin College, Freshman Year 

September 3, 1977  OFFICIALLY  RELEASED AS DICK'S PICKS 15
November 4, 1977   OFFICIALLY  RELEASED AS DAVE'S PICKS 12
November 5, 1977   OFFICIALLY  RELEASED AS DICK'S PICKS 34
November 6, 1977

Notice something interesting about the three shows that were not officially released? I do.


They are probably better shows than the five released shows I saw.
In my opinion, they are on-par, at least, with the 27 shows that have been released

I present to year the 28th, 29th, and 30th best shows of the year.

Springfield 4-23-1977 Flac
Boston 5-7-1977 Flac
Binghamton 11-6-1977 Flac
On Stage, Boston Garden, May 7, 1977



Oh my God. These shows are the bomb.  let's sample some Reviews:

Here is the well written Grateful Dead Listening in 2008

Here we have a stand out show from the Spring. Great copies of this show have stood the test of time very well. There are two masters up on archive.org now. I've opted with the Jerry Moore recording here. You will not be disappointed.

This show has just the third performance of Fire On The Mountain, and it is wonderful. The Dead are locked in to this new groove, and clearly feeding off of the energy of all the new material. Sticky syncopations and that psychedelic shuffle-slip-n-slide prevail. Jerry is dipping deeply into the creative well again and again. Just when you think he's turned a last corner, he hasn't, and you can only smile along for the ride.

Subject: the great start of the best GD tour you have to LOVE THIS SHOW!!

I was at this show, and it still remains the favorite of the 70 shows I saw between 1973 -1995....Then out of NOWHERE comes a quick 1-2-3 drum beat, and SCARLET BEGONIAS !! Often I think one can judge the quality of a show not just by the songs that are played, and how well they are played, but WHEN the songs are played! A rousing Scarlet into the first (for many of us) Fire on the Mountain to end the first set- set this crowd 'on fire' and we were pumped up for a great second set. 
Which led off with another new song, Estimated, we knew this song would be a 'keeper!' Then we kicked up the tempo again with Bertha (which in my mind became the 'theme' song for this special spring tour), nice vocal harmonies from Donna & Bobby. This up beat tempo 'never stopped' throughout this entire second set, which I never would find duplicated at any other show! Listen to this set and you will agree!! The Music Never Stopped kicked up the energy level again, and the crowd kept the tempo going with energetic clapping, and the band kept it going with Help / Slip/ Franklin's, and even though we did not think we could be any more pumped up, this Franklins Tower totally put us up into a frenzied level that only the GD at their best could do!! Not to be outdone Bobby picked another rocker, Around & Around, followed by GDTRFB, WHICH KICKED OUR BUTTS EVEN MORE and Not Fade Away. A slow Jerry encore? No way, it being Sat. night we rocked out of town with OMSN. Over they years to follow I would see many great shows, but never did I hear the band sustain such energy over the entire evening, especially during the second set.
every spring around this date I play my cassette copy of this in my car, nuthin left to do but smile smile smile.........!

Subject: 1st show of trilogy, always compared to 2nd
Where's those time machines they promised us by 2010 back in 1970? If they existed how many people do you think would be hoping for a miracle outside this show?

What a show for which to have a Bertha source (let alone an Eaton AND a Miller!) - first night of The Holy Trilogy. ...This show is the one (of the three) with the equipment problems that causes large gaps between songs. This hurts the flow and therefore the energy compared to Barton and War/Buff. If that weren't the case, this might have been a better show overall than Barton. But it would have been too hot, spinning the planet onto a new plane of existence (so we're probably lucky in that respect). 

The streak from Peggy-O to MNS is one of the greatest in the giant history of the band. There is no equal to this MNS, it's just A+. There's no better Samson, though there are a dozen that tie.

Reviewer: RFKROX -  - February 20, 2008 
Subject: Best show of 1977!

Anyone that gives this show less than 5 stars needs to have their head examined!!...Now for the show… First of all, forget about the equipment repairs that last several minutes in between some of the songs. They only helped the perfection of this awesome concert, as well. When you burn your _vbr.mp3’s to disk, you don’t have to burn the equipment repair fillers, anyway. The 1st set is as good as any 1st set I’ve heard. Bertha – Cassidy – Deal – Jack Straw is smokin’! Peggy-O is definitely a top-3 of all time, and New Minglewood Blue sounds better than the Barton Hall version, without a doubt!

Now we get to Mississippi Half-Step. Another user stated he thought the best Half-Steps were from ’80 and ’81 until he heard this one. I couldn’t echo that any more! This Half-Step is without a doubt, the fucking bomb!! I have “NEVER” heard Garcia’s guitar transcend my mind like it does on this song! Absolutely, breathtaking! If anyone can find a better Half-Step, then I’d sure like to know! It actually reminds me of Jerry’s guitar on the Dark Star from “Live Dead”. It’s that good, folks!! Big River, Jed and TMNS round out the 1st set, that just doesn’t let up!

And the 2nd set is about as good as I’ve heard for a 2nd set. Terrapin into Sampson just blows me away! Friend of the Devil and Estimated Prophet will have you jammin’ no matter what you are doing. Eyes of the World is very good and Drums is not drawn out, but Eyes is certainly not a top-10. However, The Wheel leading into a 15-1/2 minute Wharf Rat is ridiculous and one for the ages! Around and Around is solid, but the U.S. Blues culminates this show into a top-5 show of all time, IMHO. By the way, Jerry breaks a string before U.S. Blues, but fixes it before the finale.
Go listen to Barton Hall, and then listen to Boston Garden. If the 5/7 Boston Garden had a version of Scarlet > Fire from the 5/8 Barton Hall show added to the 2nd set, then this Boston Garden show may have been the best show of all-time! Definitely would have been the best show in 1977. If they only could have played Good Lovin’ after Bertha before Cassidy! OMG!! Can you imagine that??

Subject: Moments of greatness
Like many, had this last show of tour tape soon after and to this day still listen to some of the finer moments of this show.
The Half-Step is truly a great one IMHO with Boston and Englishtown in the same league (w/ the later two topping this one). 1977 was a kind year for Half-Step and I find that certain vintage years of each song have higher merits than others. I like the early '79 NYC/Philly Jack Straw's, and think '79 was the peak Jack year more than any '77, but this is surely a super strong effort for the year.

The Music Never Stopped had a bunch of can't-miss rockin' renditions from the '77-'78 era and this one certainly doesn't disappoint. What made this song special was that it was such an easy, free-wheelin', upbeat jam for anyone to follow and The Dead delivered these a dime a dozen. Jerry pops this one at the 5:15 mark, lays out a great solo, switches to rhythm, scrambles it and the band rejoins. Actually, hearing this on headphones, and better quality here, Keith is clearly out of sync near the end (sadly, the same much more obvious in the final bars of Truckin' but he does make it into the fold).

I have to agree w/ others that this Scarlett/Fire has never been at the top of my list either. Maybe it's the slow opening pace or the fact that Jerry barely plays the first section. His first solo and lilting notes around the 4:15 mark are nice but much of the work through Donna's thing he's awol. This Scarlett transition is an acquired taste for those that like a less-is more-approach. The band lets this version breathe and subtle would be an apt description. Hard to say much about Fire except there are a lot of verse flubs in both main Jerry sections. Jerry wah-wahs his way through the first solo nicely, and makes up for the flubs in the second, peaking around the 8:30 mark before they bail back to Scarlett.

Besides the Half-Step, "side 2" of the second set tape was what this show was always all about, especially when I was a budding 'Head. Sure, Jerry noodles and drifts for ideas a bit during St Stephen but the NFA gets the syncopation goin' and Jerry plays hard strings low on the fret board for quite a bit. They decide against Truckin' next and climb into a Wharf Rat that yields a jam not to be missed post 7:00 mark. Certainly one of my personal fave versions.

If you haven't heard the last 5 minutes of this version of Truckin'...you probably need to. Jerry fires off riffs against the bands rhythm all the way to the end until they all come together. If you were in attendence (not I)I think it would be so obvious you were witnessing jaw-dropping greatness.

The Golden Road to Limited Dark Stars 1975-1988

There was an awesome piece on Deadessays in 2013 called Dark Stars 1978-1984 Roundtable
http://deadessays.blogspot.com/2013/05/dark-star-1978-1984-roundtable.html




It reminded me that my era of seeing the Dead, 1976-1987 (with one 1994) was virtually a deep space void for Dark Stars.

1975 None
1976 None
1977 None
1978 None until after midnight at Winterland 12-31-78
1979  Two   1-10 Nassau and 1-20 Buffalo. Rats I saw Jan 14, 15, 17, 18, my first 4 show run and where was mine Phil? Bobby?  anyone?
1980 None
1981 None during the "Calender Year"

I was beginning to think I'd never get one.    51 shows, no Dark Star for me.

Finally, on the 52 show, past midnight, past a great second set of

Iko Iko*, Playin' In The Band-> Terrapin Station-> Playin' In The Band-> Drums-> The Other One***-> Not Fade Away***-> Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad***-> Morning Dew;

A third set emerges. And folks, this wasn't your Daddy's Dark Star (ranked next to last  in the 14 years from 1975-1988 in the DeadEssays piece above), and it did go into Bertha and Good Lovin, they must have already played Miracle that night (duh, not). But it was still my Dark Star. And I love it to this day.


1982 None 
1983 None
1984  The Greek (rumored ro be DP#17)  Missed it again rats, first greek I missed.  Did see the great
1985 None
1986 None
1987 None
1988 None

Guess Bruce Hornsby made up for in 1989, playing it like 10 times on 6-17-91 at Giants.

Thanks for the Digital Board Charlie Miller

Dave's Picks 17: Berkeley Greek? UPDATE: IT"S NOT




UPDATE 11/3/2015


Apparently, the Deadhead below thought he saw 7-14-1984 and actually saw 7-19-1974.  Or he was just a prankster






The more than rumor is that Dave's Picks 17 in January will be a 1984 Berkeley Greek Theater Show.
It was nice to see 1968 Greek in the 30 trips set, but the 27 shows between 1981-1989, plus the 29 other Berkeley shows (mainly at Berkeley High School) offer a great opportunity to celebrate the East Bay Dead Experience.  Even if the rumor is not true (supposedly there was a banner on dead.net for a moment that said it was), this is a treasure trove for future Greek run set(s).

If so, I take some credit.


EMAIL TO DAVID L. AT DEAD VALUE

Me to Vault:

Dave
Thanks for your great releases. I suggested a few weeks ago on The Golden Road that you might want to consider a Berkeley show for an official release sometime.  Just thought since no GD Berkeley show has ever been released.  The BCT and Greek experience was seminal in my career from 1975-1994  Dave Davis

30 Trips Listening Hint #1: Every single time I saw the Dead after 1987 Branford sat in. 1994-12-16


I know the best way to listen to 30 Trips now.  Listen to the CDs loud on your home audio system in the midle of your sofa about 20 feet away. Sure, its so convenient to rip flacs and listen anywhere on your iphone, but trust me on this one.






So I am randomly listening to selections from the CDS and put in 9-10-1991 MSG with Branford.  Now I know the digital board of this has been godhead for like years  archive dsbd here, but this new offical selection is pretty godhead too.  And it reminded me that after View from the Vault 4 in Oakland in July 1987, every single time I saw the Dead after 1987 that Branford sat in.

The bad news is that I stopped going to shows in 1987 (I was a critic deadhead that thought Jerry was really going downhill since 1975), but my buddy Kirk Lilley who you can view in May 1987 at the top of this page on the left came down from Seattle and took me to the December 16, 1994 show at the Sports Arena. It was my only show after 1987, my only LA show, my only 1990s Dead show, and my only Branford. Too bad, this show was probably the lesser Branford show in this list. Branford Speaks

09/10/1991 MSG, the Magic Night, and 30 Trips 1991 Selection
12/10/1993 Los Angeles Sports Arena
12/16/1994 Los Angeles Sports Arena

Of course, the Grateful Seconds occur mainly at the earlier shows, pick-em, but do pick up the 9-10-91.

At mine, there are lesser seconds, but they were my less nights with Jerry. Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of my first show with JGB 10-24-75, and I miss the guy. And the other folks who went on the ride with me.

Blues for Allah Versions


Inspired by jerlouvis on archive.org, I was curious about the various version of Blues for Allah attempted by the band members after the first three shows in 1975.

It appears there were two Allah-like jams in 1981 in London and 1984 in Marin, you can judge for yourselves those versions.

I was lucky to see this version with the great Phil Q on June 27, 2001 at the Greek in LA (which I drove by less than one hour ago, haha)

https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/share/pOW3rD9x6F1pPrlGb20CGlm3Thx6cpAFV2dST1iSDsO?ref_=cd_ph_share_link_copy


All the 2001 versions including the first in Charlotte  https://archive.org/details/2001-04-20.paf.sbd.philleshnet.4230.sbefail.flacf  are worth it with Jimmy and Warren ripping them up.  I was expecting another on New Year's Eve, but the ship had sailed on these in November.

furthur later did four versions including one in 2010 at the Blues for Allah album recreation in Angel's Camp.

The Uber Rare Eleven: Uncle John's Band Split






It's not surprising that the 1984 choice for the 30 Trips box is Augusta, Maine on October 12. Prior to this show, Augusta's main claim to fame is its local deadhead, Kelly Irwin and a killer second set Terrapin->Let It Grow from 9-2-79.

11 is the magic number in Grateful Dead lore, and the exact number of Uncle John's Band sandwiches in the band's history.  The first three of course are the double deckers of PITB>UJB>Dew>UJB>PITB all with official Dead releases.  These moments may be the high in the entire career of the band.  

There is only one other double-decker that even occurred, and it was at the Lewiston, Maine show in 1980. I'm not saying it was due to me, but I did ride with Phil to that show, and share with him some magic potion of the disco era.

Version #4 below was the only version where the reprise occurred in the encore, and this show is also an official release.

Version #5 is the only first set and show opener at the 15th anniversary show in Boulder.

Version #8 in 1981 is the only UJB>PITB and later UJB>PITB show.

I will post some links later

Paradise Waits: The Complete Help on the Way History

When I first heard Help on the Way->Slipknot!->Franklin's Tower, it was September 1, 1975 and I had a just run down to Lisbon Street and paid about $3.99 for Blues for Allah, and it was pure joy. I think Jimmy Roux and my brother Ralph were there and we were up in the attic with a J.

Soon, I would hear the Make Believe Ballroom bootleg (probably $7 found in Cambridge, MA) and the to-this-day unbelievable Bill Graham intro into this.
At my first show June 9, 1976, the Dead didn't play this, but did encore with the only-ever standalone Franklin's Tower encore.  It wasn't until April 23, 1977, with Mike Barr, Geoff Maclean, Jimmy, and Tom Fake, we got to see it live. It was the 22 version out of 27 during the Crown Jewels era, but easily in the top-5.

My second wasn't until Halloween in Marin in 1983.  I think you all should listen to the first 27 below. I will add links soon

Some of my other favorites are the historic ones:
6/19/76 the early FM tape which opens the show and goes into Music Never Stops
8/4/76 the second set jam, one of my first surprise SBDs taping tapes when I was expected bad audience tapes in a trade
9/24/76 slips in a 5 minutes drums in the middle
9/27/76 sandwiches the Other One and Wharf Rat
12/31/76 oh well NFA and Dew instead of Franklins
5/22/77 Dicks Picks 3 beautiful
6/9/76 another masterpiece
10/11/77 Norman  so sad to see you go

In the Comeback in 1983-1985 every single version opens the second set.

It's not until the Third Era, that it starts to appear in other places. On 10-11-89, it finally opened the show again.

Don't miss the 30 Trips Bradford version at the Garden 9-10-91 and the next one ten nights later in Boston that goes into Fire On the Mountain instead of Frankin's.

Sugar Magnolia/Sunshine Daydream Splits, Ghosts, and Unusual Occurrences in the Setlist




This was a more rare split than Playing in the Band; yet just as fun.  This started as a Boston tradition, moved to New Year's Eve and was reborn in the late 1980's as a second set sandwich treat.

I only saw three:

6/12/1976 Boston Sugar Magnolia [5:29] > U.S. Blues [5:16] > Sunshine Daydream [3:35]
12/31/1980 Oakland Sugar Magnolia [6:34] ; Scarlet Begonias [10:16] > Fire On The Mountain [9:42] ; Estimated Prophet [15:00] > Drums > Space [9:01] > The Other One [8:36] > Wharf Rat [10:08] > Around And Around [4:56] > Sunshine Daydream [3:47]
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j1iaash11h0krfq/AAD-gGLkFe-qlanlpegZeQ0Oa?dl=0

12/31/1982 Oakland Sugar Magnolia > Sugaree > Man Smart (Woman Smarter) ; Ship Of Fools ; Playing In The Band > Drums > Space > Not Fade Away ; Deal > Sunshine Daydream
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/5zt88hx24fw1cgb/AAAoSOEZgK_jsPEtZb0_dulha?dl=0

however I did see two of the five Ghost versions, where they played Sugar Magnolia and just plum forgot Sunshine Daydream on 12/31/83 and 12/31/84.
