Upcoming Schedule:

  • Thurs., 5/6/04, Studio A, 6-12:00 

Well, we were back in Studio A for the 6-12 slot and we got going just after 7 and ended just before 11 for a full night of music.  While not technically a list, Rich brought in choice song selections from 4/26/69 and 4/26/71 and we played exclusively old times songs except for the When Push Comes To Shove.  It was just us core Deadstein members in the studio with no guests.  Coffee-Boy decided to alter his recording methodology to include the use of this hard disk, MP3 player/recorder.  This should hopefully make his life easier with respect to recording and distributing the music.  In addition, he used his mini-disk as a backup - redundant recording setup which was wise because it didn't work throughout the whole night.

Since we were doing lots of the early time Dead songs, there were several moments that we were not intimately familiar with but we did well for the most part.  I thought the Mountains of the Moon was particularly good.  We tried a China Cat --> Doin that Rag, but the Doin' that Rag should have been call Not Doin that Rag cause we didn't.  Baby Blue, Hurts Me Too and Minglewood were all food.  The Playing was nice and spacey and it went into a Morning Dew which at times felt like it might not make it but in the end turned out to be a very big and and exciting build up, like a Morning Dew is supposed to be played. The April Fools Imagine consisted of me on piano, Andy on drums and Rich on Guitar.

For the second set we opened up with a Bertha which was hot but Trister busted a string during it so it was all it could have been.  The That's it for the Other O, Cryptical Me and My Uncle was no good until after the  the Me and My Uncle cause out timing was no good and we had no Other One feel.  After the Me and My Uncle the whole thing shot back into shape and was good.  The closing of the That's It for the Other One was especially nice.  High Time was well done and Push Comes to Shove was just out of place but a hot number never the less.

I ate a C5 from the Fresco Taco with Kevin and Mitch.  It was a rainy Monday with little traffic and cheap parking, $10 ant my lot.  The Giant's just drafted Eli Manning so it looks like the Kerry Collins era is over.  The Nets swept the Knicks in the first round of the NBA playoffs and the the Yankees and their $185 million payroll got swept by the Redsox in Yankee Stadium over the weekend.

Till next Thursday, 5/6/04 at 6:00 pm in Studio A.

The story, as I've heard it is that in order to maximize royalty payments since in 1968 composers on rock 'n' roll albums got payed by the song, it was more lucrative to call the various portions of the composition known as "That's It For The Other One" by different "song names". Thus, the first part "the other day the waited etc" was called Cryptical Envelopment. Then comes the drum sections where the rhythm gets established which is called "drums" in the Dick's Picks series, but had no seperate name on the Anthem of the Sun album. The part of the song that became prominent after 1971 that we affectionately call "The Other One" was originally named "Quadlibet For Tenderfeet". There's an avante guarde electronic music composition with the name "Quadlibet" in the title, and Lesh co-opted the word. After "The OTher One" there's a reprise of "Cryptical Envelopment" with "and when the day had ended etc" that has two parts, the "you know he had to die" quiet section that climaxes into a big jam in A Major after the final "well you know he had to die" On Anthem of the Sun, they called this "The Faster We Go, The Rounder We Get" so that they could get extra royalty money for a new song title. On Anthem Orf The Sun, the jam deconstructs into a prepared piano and John Cage-like wierd sound effects section that Tom Constanten helped Lesh and Garcia create in the studio that they called "We Leave The Castle" that segues into "New Potato Caboose" which is an entirely different song. My favorite example of the whole shebang is on Dicks Picks #10 from Harpur College, Bighampton NY 5/2/70. To our credit we had the same vibe last night for the "he had to die part" Congratulations on that to everybody!

Coffee; 2 words for you: Dick's Picks (http://www.gdstore.com/)...there's 31 of them so get into it! Please let Kevin listen to them also.... The "pick" that I was listening to on the way in Monday night was #3 from the Sportatorium in Pembroke Pines, Florida 5/22/77. Super hot first set starting with a Music, and the second set ends with an unbelievable Est>Eyes>Wharf Rat>Terrapin (which starts at "inspiration...", interestingly)>Dew. That dew is remarkable and beautiful, I highly reccomend this pick.

Does the upload of Coffee-Boy's files work for every one this week. I'm asking because on one computer of mine I get an error when it starts to play that the digital synch rate is wrong for this file. I know it's my problem because I have an overly complicated digital soundcard/mixer that is causing it, but I just wonder if these MP3 files were created at some strange bit rate or if a more standard bit rate can be selected when creating the files.

Turns out the David Nelson Band was lending its support to the Reform Cannibus Laws Rally in Battery Park City. A good cause was had by all in attendance.

I was good to see the DNB and a beautiful day in NYC to enjoy a free concert in the park. One of the best things about living in this area.
