    • Apparently ol' Etta James was in a bawdy mood that night, and was sassing (in a good natured way) Garcia about the size his personal anatomy.

      The Grateful Dead and Ms. Etta also had similar tastes in recreational supplements, and backstage was supposedly quite thick with clouds of smoke.....

      (by all accounts, a fine time was had by everyone involved)

      • If you can believe Rock Skully's great work of fiction 'Living With The Dead', it was Etta's 2nd gig of the night, having sang earlier for a convention of lesbians at a San Fran hotel.
        Have a Grateful New Year MM !!

              • Turn on your lovelight, let it shine on me. Heard the 4/27/71 (New York, NY) version of this one this morning on my way into the office, and it has stayed with me all day, and fired me up for JazzFest. Looking forward to lots of moments where you're just swept away with the goodness.

                  • This guy has compiled every guest appearance at a Grateful Dead show from 1967-1975 and includes links to each one on the Archive.

                    This is some great, historical stuff.

                      I love all the '71 stuff. It seems to be more rockin' than most. They really get some of the tunes cooking (8-6-71 Hollywood Palladium is my favorite. Hard To Handle>Casey Jones OH MY!).

                      • Speaking of All Things Grateful Dead, I just got a call from our ol' Threadhead friend Phatpapa (Eric) about getting together in Denver for my "Mile High" Radiators weekend next month, and he informed me that Furthur is also playing in Denver on the same nights that I will be in town for the Rads.....

                        I haven't seen Phil and Bob play together for a few years now, and have never heard this particular incarnation (Furthur) but based on reading how all of you seem to really enjoy Furthur's sound, I decided to skip the final night of the 3 Radiators Colorado gigs and instead got tickets with Phatpapa to saturday night's Furthur show.

                        One of the best Grateful Dead shows I ever attended (in fact one of the best nights of music I have ever been a part of PERIOD.) was in Denver--McNichols Arena 12/12/90--back when I was still fresh to the Dead's music, and ever since Denver has always been a favorite city of mine to enjoy live music in.

                        I am going to do my best to enjoy Furthur's music on it's own merits, and not compare/contrast it to hearing the Grateful Dead---It has generally been bittersweet hearing Bob, Phil, Mickey and Bill performing since Garcia passed on, but their music still resonates with me in a way that is impossible to describe in words, and I am very much looking forward to hear what they are currently creating.

                            • That Hard to Handle is definitely in "best ever" territory, and the audience recording of that show should probably be described the same way. I'm still amazed that a bootleg audience recording from 1971 can sound as clear as it does and manage to capture the unbridled energy pulsating throughout the venue.

                                I'm so glad you can hear the crowd really well in that tune because you feel the energy from them. They are pumped and Jerry does not let them down.
