And in the middle of negotiations
You break down.

Damn the bastard. Nothing left to do but get back to the roots and tear out a mind-bending set and more.

Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Morning Dew, Dark Star, China Cat Sunflower, The Eleven, Turn On Your Lovelight Cryptical Envelopment-> The Other One-> Cryptical Envelopment-> New Potato Caboose-> Born Cross-Eyed-> Spanish Jam, Alligator-> Drums-> Alligator-> Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks), E: Midnight Hour

GD at the Carousel 2/14/68 (stream here).

No funny Valentine, this. Worth the price of admission for the Caution alone.

Oh I'm so mad. Asshole.

You do realise that if someone who didn't know grateful dead from Adam read this post, they'd definitely think you'd lost it? :)))))))))))))

(actually scratch that, it could even apply to someone who *does* know GS from Adam :P)

Holy Moly. 2/14/68. That was a good year. (Though "You never give me your money" didn't happen till a whole year later...)

Tear it up, man. That's an awesome set.

:) Nice pick. Although I prefer the Caution performances from the Europe 72 tour. 5/11/72 is my pick, but you wont find that one on What you will find is this one :

Not the best sound quality, but this one stands out for the amazing rap Pig does between Caution & WDYL. One of a kind. Just check out that call and response between Pig and Jerry.

that's exactly right!

that caution is excellent, but it's more the jazzy sort -- just as that entire tour was. i wanted a primal one, with jerry's searing liquid leads and phil dropping bombs on that ostinato. actually, that entire set right from llr is really nice -- but then so is this one (except for the tragic splice on alligator).

i remember a 40-odd minute TOO that you used to love. was that also from the europe tour? from one of the paris shows?

4/26/72, officially released as Hundred Year Hall. Monstrous Tiger Jam. "Dragon with matches loose on the town" doesnt even begin to describe it.

I like how you can simply read an anonymous comment and know exactly who it is. (Unless it is our old pal, WFS? If it is, howdy friend!)

Frankfurt, actually. You'll also want the show from Dusseldorf two nights earlier. Also officially released. The reason all the Europe 72 soundboards are missing from LMA is that they are all worthy.
