Dead and Company Deliver Perfection in Saratoga Springs Setlist Video and the 411
Dead and Company Deliver Perfection and the show of the summer in Saratoga Springs. Setlist Video and the 411
The new phrase should be never miss a Tuesday show. Dead and Company performed a near perfect show for the second week in a row. The Setlist they delivered at S.P.A.C this evening literally offered something for every Deadheads musical pallet and is now my favorite show of a loaded summer. They opened up the night with arguably one of the best openers in the Dead's catalogue with a smoking version of "Hell in a Bucket". Next satisfying their blues tooth was a cover of "Next time you see me". The band was firing on all cylinders for both sets of this masterpiece and a first set version of "Looks Like Rain" let the N.Y fans know this evening was going to be special. The epic first stanza came to a close with the classic pairing of "Lost Sailor">"Saint of Circunstance".
The second set of what is the show of the summer had arguably the best "China Cat Sunflower" into "I know you Rider" musical sandwich ever. While the set opened with "China Cat" it took an epic turn into an other worldly version of "Deal". John Mayer has really turned the song into a jam veichle and his guitar playing is explosive, turning this classic on its head. Oteil then delivered the song of the summer with the most haunting version of "China Doll" yet. Next was the Tuesday "Terrapin Station" as this night has become your best bet at hearing this gem. After an eventful Drums and Space was a welcome cover of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" and it did not disappoint before melting into a breathtaking version of "Black Peter". This Jerry ballad then went into an "I know you Rider" to complete one hell of a China>Rider. This monument of a show offered the perfect encore in the form of "Going Down the Road Feeling Bad". With the tour coming to an end soon and with this band literally making magic each night this cover was very appropriate. We still have a few shows left in the summer tour that time forgot. Dead and Company are truly a marvel and at least we are enjoying the ride......YEA!
Tour has just begun and I fear in a month Dead and Company could be done. An editorial by Kevin Long Image created by Van Rapp I take absolute no pleasure in writing anything negative about the one true love of my life. I don't do it to lessen anybody’s experience, I am just one person who has perspective and passion. But, Houston we have a problem. I realize they are only two shows in and it's been an emotional week for the band. I am such a fanatic that I gave both shows good reviews because buzzed, excited and in all good company I heard what I wanted to. Upon further review, I have listened to both nights a few times sober and they are less than stellar. In fact, they are a train wreck with moments of the morphine you get after the metaphorical crash. To be blunt, they sound like the band we all were afraid of when we first learned of Mayer’s involvement. I was worried about John being tired after his demanding schedule. It’s much more than fatigue, he has lost his chops al…
Amazon Announces the cast for their Upcoming Grateful Dead T.V. Show.
This was my April Fool's Joke!
Amazon just released the cast members that will play the Grateful Dead band members in their upcoming show about the band's life. I am not an acting coach but I must admit there are more than a few head scratchers. Before we announce the cast, one odd moment actually delayed the production team from casting the respective roles of the show. When executive producer and GD member Bobby Weir insisted on playing Jerry Garcia. The uncomfortable week of dealing with this unrealistic request came to an end when Bill Walton pointed out to Bobby that he has in fact been playing that role already since Jerry untimely death in 1995. One thing Bob was adamant about was picking the actor to play him. He insisted on 80's child star Corey Feldman, Bobby was quoted of saying "Just watch "Dream a Little Dream" 1 threw 6 if you think he does not have the chee…
