There are times that you can beckon
There are times when you must call
You can shake a ton of reckoning
But you can't shake it all
There are times when I can help you out
And times that you must fall
There are times when you must live in doubt
And I can't help at all

One blue star / Sets on the hill
Call it back / You never will
One more star / Sinks in the past
Show me something / Built to last.

Built to last till time itself
Falls tumbling from the wall
Built to last till sunshine fails
And darkness moves on all
Built to last while years roll past
Like cloudscapes in the sky
Show me something built to last
Or something built to try


-------------------------

Tomorrow I'll dig through my favorites of '89 and find one with a rendition that does this song justice. Every once in a while I get really bummed out thinking where the band might've gone if Brent hadn't passed so early.

I turn and walk away
then I come ‘round again
It looks as though tomorrow
I’ll do pretty much the same.

I must turn down your offer
but I’d like to ask a break
You know I’m ready to give
everything for anything I take.

Someone called my name you know
I turned around to see
It was midnight in the
Mission and the bells were not for me.

Come again, walking along
in the Mission in the rain,
Come again, walking along
in the Mission in the rain,

Ten years ago, I walked this street
my dreams were riding tall
Tonight I would be thankful Lord,
for any dream at all.

Some folks would be happy
just to have one dream come true
But everything you gather is just
more that you can lose.

Come again, walking along
in the Mission in the rain,
Come again, walking along
in the Mission in the rain,

All the things I planned
to do I only did half way
Tomorrow will be Sunday
born of rainy Saturday.

There’s some satisfaction
in the San Francisco rain
No matter what comes down
the Mission always looks the same.

Come again, walking along
in the Mission in the rain.


- mission in the rain

that song has got some really good truth in it "everything you gather is just
more that you can lose" thats very true


peace out Dm

:gd_icon: : October 9th, 1989

This here is a monster of a show.  Sound quality is top notch and the band is firing on all cyclinders.  On top of that, the setlist is phenomenal.  It includes a soul-melting Built to Last (as promised), as well as We Can Run (one of my favorite Brent tunes).  Other than that, the first set is extremely solid.

But as great as the first set is, the real draw of this show is in the second set.  They kick off with a jammed out Playing>Uncle John's Band>Playing, then casually veer into an epic Dark Star (which at that point hadn't been played in 5 years!).  Dark star wanders into Drums&Space, and a nice Death Don't Have No Mercy meanders out of the tail end of Space, followed by Dear Mr Fantasy>Hey Jude Finale.  Throwing Stones and Good Lovin' wrap things up.

But that's not all.  For the finale, the boys bust out Attics of My Life, which they hadn't played live since 1972.  This is really a stand-out show, and I wouldn't be surprised if it gets released in the next couple years.  Download before it's too late!



Peace out Dm

The first five tracks are tight and solid, but nothing too out of the ordinary.  Then Bobby announces that the band has a special guest, and Branford Marsalis joins in on sax for the rest of the show.  Marsalis always breathed fresh life into the Dead's jams, and Marsalis+Mydland is just :awesome:.

Seriously though, most days it's the only music I feel like listening to.  I can't conceive of a cultured musical ear that couldn't enjoy at least a couple of these shows.  Their studio material, on the whole, I could do without.

February 9th, 1973

Normally I'm not too partial to 1973, but this show is just smokin'. There were a lot of technical difficulties with the equipment that night, but the quality is high regardless, after a few glitches in the opening tune. I'll let the setlist speak for itself:

Promised Land, Row Jimmy, Black Throated Wind, Deal, Me & My Uncle, Sugaree, Looks Like Rain, Loose Lucy, Mexicali Blues, Brown Eyed Women, El Paso, Here Comes Sunshine, Playin' In The Band China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider, Jack Straw, They Love Each Other, Truckin'-> Eyes Of The World-> China Doll, Big River, Ramble On Rose, Box Of Rain, Wave That Flag, Sugar Magnolia, Uncle John's Band, Around & Around, E: Casey Jones

I haven't seen any video interviews from that period, but I've got a book (Conversations with the Dead) full of interview transcrpts with different band and crew from the early '80s... it's nice because the interviewers are actually Dead fans who grasp the music to an extent they can discuss it with the band intelligently.

Got a link? Otherwise I'll keep my eye out.

I have a question. Where do they get all these songs that they performed live??

They have like 2 studio albums or something & a lot of the songs aren't on those.

When the Dead wrote a song, it would get worked out and explored in their live shows before it ever made it onto a studio album. Some songs never made it onto studio albums because they "weren't quite good enough"... this was apparently the case with the late-60s tune Mason's Children (though the song is very far from not being good enough)

They wrote most of their songs, but they also play a large number of covers from a variety of artists. They convered Bob Dylan most frequently (starting in their very early career, but incorparating many more of his tunes near the end of the 80s) and the Beatles were runner-up, but they played tunes from all sorts of people: Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Willie Dixon, Jesse Fuller, Kris Kristofferson, Blind Willie Johnson...

So yeah, I think they mostly got their songs by someone in the band having an idea for an interesting arrangement, and that arrangement getting fleshed out in the live arena. On the occasions when they tried to make studio albums to add songs to their repetoire, it didn't work so well (I'm thinking of Wake of the Flood and Blues for Allah) and the songs didn't necessarily make it into rotation. In their later career they gave up on that idea entirely, and let their live repetoire pretty much speak for itself; the band's one Top-Ten hit, Touch of Gray, was released commercially in 1986, though the band had been playing the song live since early '83.

If they weren't so fucked on drugs they might have realized that none of their shit was worth releasing.

don't know much about the grateful dead, I'm way more into jimmy hendrix, pink floyd, black sabbath, the who, cream, and deep purple or led zepplin. I guess that limits my 70s experience, I'm sur there's more shit that I can think of.
