Carroll's 55th Street - Everyone is in Studio 2 for another Wednesday night jam


With the entire band in the house and ready to jam, we hit this night hard with a 22-song assault on the setlist. While we had not preconceived notions about what to play for the night, we started with a fairly traditional Grateful Dead set including the Alabama Getaway opener and 12 songs later, concluding with the Music Never Stopped set closer.

The Scarlet into Hard to Handle was a nice long endeavor into the second set, but it was disrupted by the Masterpiece, which may have been one of our best numbers of the night. The Crazy Fingers lead into a drum solo which seemed to knock Kevin out. When it was time to get back into playing music after drums Kevin was AWOL. I traditional Deadstein fashion, we went on without Kevin and the bass for the post drums segment of Going Down the Road and One More Saturday Night. I dubbed in a bass part at home for these two songs to provide a deep sound to the songs. Somehow, Kevin struggled to make it back for the last tree songs, but he did make it back and we finished the night on a positive note. The entire evening was captured using my Mackie MDR 24/96 multi-track recorder. Freak Out!
