    Deadheads...

    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

    Scarlet Begonias into Fire on the Mountain for 20 min. Pure magic. Bill Graham once said , "They're not the best at what they do, they're the only ones that do what they do."

      With this show I got hooked in 81, still magic:

        LOL, memes are memes because they're true! Not that I've experienced it with the Dead, but definitely with Phish. When you peak with geeks...it's a mighty fine thing.

          I have mixed feelings about the Grateful Dead and especially Deadheads. I've seen some epic shows including Berkeley Greek and NYE shows that were off the charts. But I have also been present for some horrible scenes including the riot at Deer Creek. When it works it's great but far too often it doesn't. And don't even get me started about Dead & Co...

            I never got to see them. I'm just into the music and where it takes me.

                Not a John Mayer fan and the last show we saw Sep 11 2021 was super slow and low energy.

                  Oh yes I know about that controvery. I just like Mayer in Dead & Co very much (not so much solo). I see though where you are coming from, and can understand, I thought the 2019 tour was too low on energy, but 2021 really did grab me. They could have played faster and more dynamic, I would not have minded. But I thought that they had an subtle, intricate energy on a high level. The complex interplay, not at least between Mayer and Chimenti I found stunning. It seemed to me they could go wherever they wanted together in new territory, the whole band. But obviously you are not alone with your criticism.

                    It also didn't help that it was the 20th anniversary of 911, and the placed was packed with folks smoking cigarettes all around us in the lawn. I can handle cannabis but cigarette smoke really tears me up and there was nowhere to hide.

                    But I agree when they get into a groove it can be pure magic, even 57 years after they first started. Glad you are able to enjoy some shows!

                      This Dead show in February 1971 saw five songs being debuted, including Bertha and Wharf Rat. The latter is dropped into a Dark Star jam in the first set, a transition which Phil Lesh decades later described as beautiful, and which has since become known as the 'Beautiful Jam'. It's an entirely apt description.

                        This show has been officially released, and I very much enjoy it. It's bonus content on the 50th Anniversary of American Beauty.

                        Feb 18,1971, Capitol Theatre, Port Chester NY....


                        Nice to find a Dead sub-forum here!

                          Yes, I have the American Beauty 50th. It's a very nicely put together reissue, as are all the anniversary packages.

                            Need some Deadhead help -

                            Anyone familiar with this Dead concert? I don’t own any Dead, but I want something, vinyl, and this item is up my alley. If it’s still where I saw it that is. Lol.

                            Thoughts or comments on the show / that tour??!!

                              I've a vague feeling it's been officially released as one of the Road Trips series. I've got several from 1988, including two from May of that year, and they're excellent performances. Jerry had lost weight and regained some health after his diabetic coma scare in 86.
