Eric:

The WBYG chords/melody has been played near the end of GDTRFB since the late '60s (as I'm sure you know!). So it's neither a tease nor part of the song.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tennesee Ed (Potato_caboose) on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 03:25 pm: Edit Post

Morning Dew for sure! Hopefully they are ready to really kill it. Dual closer, Black Muddy River & Brokedown? - one can hope.
Has Phil ever done "Do It in The Road" with the Friends outside of GD? Would LOVE t hear him break that out...fun song, great tune. One can dream, LOL...


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Vincent Puleo (Vincepuleo) on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 03:38 pm: Edit Post

I really think there will be a Black Muddy River tonight... also a Morning Dew, and probably a Sugaree.

I really wish I could go tonight, but I'm still in high school.

Seems like Phil isn't stopping anytime soon so I think it is safe to say there will be a 3rd Philathon.

For sure, Delia as GDTRFB is one of those "traditional" tunes, but as it is known in the "deadhead" world, the ending instrumental part is associated as being part of GDTRFB, no?

Maybe they will suprise everyone of you idiots and cancel the show. You people never shut up.
First of all if you had even seen jerry(which you probably never did. You would know that esau or should i say Brother Esau. Was a bathroom- Beer-go smoke a cigarrete song. Your fantasy lists (And i do mean fantasy) are a waste of time. Just enjoy it man. Because one day you will wish you had. PEACE

I have a couple of things for those who think Jakie stinks and Phil's band is a bar band.

An eye dropper, q-tips, and peroxide. Three drops in each ear then after a few minutes carefully remove blockage with q-tips. If that doesn't work there is always the ear, nose, and throat doctor.

all such bad vibes tonight of all nights. Jackie is the bomb, and an incredibly nice guy. When Phil played Richmond this past June (Glen Allen), it was like setting up in someones back yard, we were at the stage rappin with Jackie for a while. Molo came out for a while. We couldnt get Phil to come out tho. But I think this band is the best Phil has fielded since it was Jerry's band. IMHO.

That is what it sounds like to me. I have seen Jackie many times now and he is extremely talented. Has a great voice too. Phil knows talent when he hears it. I have enjoyed every incarnation that Phil has put together through the years. The nitpicking that goes on here sometimes is just rediculous. If you don't like the current lineup then stay home and listen to boots of your favorite. More tickets available for those of us who love Phil and whoever his current friends are.

their is a difference between 'hating' and objective statements of fact. I do LOVE Phil no matter who he wants to play with and love seeing him with this lineup, hands down. I like Jackie's overall contribution to the band and totally understand why phil choose him.

This does not change the fact that Jackie is a pretty standard, competent, guitar player. His solos are generally simple,rock-oriented, and almost entirely blues-scale based. He dosen't have the guitar 'vocabulary' necessary (in my opinion) for this role.

Just got back... on paper, the best show ever. In reality, not very good. Phil had some technical problems in the first set and was cranky, which culminated in the false start for Dew. The crowd was listless and bored down on the floor, but weirdest off was what happened at the start of the second set. As soon as he started Born Cross-Eyed this dude next to me had some weird seizure and collapsed. I had to help clear the way out and his friends managed to get him out. Then minutes later it happened to another dude nearby, and then soon after that someone else further toward the stage went down. Very strange energy. There were some moments (Eyes in particular) that were very well played, but the show never took flight, and the crowd was really indifferent. I took off during Lovelight, confused about what I had just seen...

I saw several people collapse and one have a seizure at one of the Nokia shows I was at...I attributed it to some bad drugs coupled with poor ventilation.

im pretty sure it was both verses of dark star but i could be wrong

def. not the show i was expecting - im not complaining about the setlist at all, except to say i never got the celebratory vibe that was in ample supply at last years finale.

it was a show that suffered from a certain flow which was due in part to technical problems that obv made phil a bit mad - id be too if this was the 14th night at a venue and the sound is screwed up, no excuse for that at all.

as mentioned above, people were dropping like floors on the floor, it was embarrassing. it was difficult to ignore at times and people were packed in like sardines with quite a few individuals pushing their way through the crowd without a care in the world.

ive complained enough and prob sound jaded to boot - i had a good time and, quite strangely, i think the show will prob sound better on tape than the live experience.

first set started off with lady with a fan so we all knew this was going to be a killer setlist, things started off clunky in the beginning, prob due to the technical problems, but the band regrouped well enough for terrapin, then into slipknot of all things, which was interesting and spacey like the 11/15 version but more truncated - elevator was executed with precision.

weird placement for down in the valley woe. the false start in morning dew noticeably ticked phil off, but the version itself featured a nice duel with larry/barry at the end that really couldve gone one for a few more minutes. good first set, setlist was better then the execution and a bit short.

during set break, a person collapsed on the floor so you know things were getting dicey to say the least.

second set highlights were teresa williams' stunning vocals on gimme shelter, rocking version, and both barry and larry slaying eyes - larrys solo was phenomenal. barry also tore through his longest guitar at the end of the eleven. this lineup is not built for dark star and was relatively short and not particularly memorable - it featured jackie doing some noodling up and down the neck with a slide that i thought was a bit grating. i dont mean to knock jackie, but he should not be the one handed the lead on songs like dark star. i was waiting for barry to really take the reigns but he wasnt given the opportunity, although sless had some really good estimated prophet-sounding tones going at the end of mountains of the moon - which was cut short by phil going into the wheel.

like any show, it had its ups and downs. i prob wouldve opened the first or second set with a more upbeat tune for the balloon drop to get the crowd going which wouldve lightened things up a bit but what do i know?

im exhausted and my wallet and girlfriend are glad that phil is leaving town but im feeling fortunate to have caught 5 shows. see you next year.

i thought tonight was a pretty mediocre show. I hate to nit pick and i still had a hell of a time but i thought the entire show was missing something .... terrapin was good and Elevator was interesting (glad i caught it) dew was ok and then boom setbreak. very short set with a loooong break.

something was wrong with Phils bass and a few rodies (and Phil himself) were out messing with it all setbreak

The second set was just ok to me .... something was defently wrong with Jackie (he sat the entire set and barely sang) shelter was nice . eyes was well played. Unbroken chain was by far the highlight for me ... barry and Larry ripped it up!! the rest of the set just kind of dragged on until midnight hour. Both midnight hour and lovelight were decent but short and before i knew it the show was over.

The real downer was the crowd. this was my fourth show of the run and ive never felt such bad vibes. people were pushing each other out of the way, and i even saw 2 fights almost break out. there was also at least 10 people that i saw that were so drunk they could not stand up. nevertheless i tried to ignore them and enjoy the show

again i hate to be negative but thats how i felt it went down tonight ... i still enjoyed myself and i am very grateful that phil puts on such a great show for us ...... also thanks taperrob for updating the setlists and putting out great recording .... we all appreciate it!

Just got home safe and sound, yes it was weird crowd at times, sort of like being in a pin ball machine at times tonight. They would not stop talking during the songs either. Anyways I had a blast back at the sb and the first easliy was the best I saw out of 5 shows.Terrapin was awesome and the Slip knot was really good. I knocked a guy's drink right out of his hands at the exact ending when I was dancing. It was perfect, although not for him. Elavator was incredible! I love that song and it is blast to dance to. Molo was a beast! Kara is the best woman to dance with, she is a blast and gives it her all.She is a sweet heart and a wonderful dancer too. Valley slowed things down nicley but it was cool.Morning Dew, what a bookend, was a nice surprise and was played very well. Larry had an excellent solo at the end. I am pretty sure the 1st set was over an hour. Set two started off more under control but it was great to hear Born Crossed Eyed, Steve did a good job, into New Potato Caboose, 2nd time for me :-), was really cool. Gimme Shelter was ripped up big time and Teresa was incredible. Larry is one lucky guy.Eyes was the best version I have ever seen Phil played and was very well received with everyone singing along. The Eleven had it moments too but then we got Unbroken Chain finally, it was a great reading and the ending was very sweet.A short DS but into Mountains of the Moons was wow!!! It was a beautiful version, this is where the talking was really bad.I wanted to hear the Wheel and it was a monster, the transition was very nice and Phil was incredible! Midnight Hour was a blast and it was raved up big time. Love light was as good as it gets. Phil played it like it was 1969! Everyone had a blast. The curfew really put the kibosh on a double encore but it was the best show I saw of the run. I am sure when the boards come out it will be number 1 or 2. Thanks to everyone who made it what it was, an incredible time!
Good nite

Just got back home (Philly area). Anthony and ScuBa, sorry your shows had problems. Tonight, I witnessed an amazing show.

With Jackie in the background most of the night, Barry and Larry ripped it up (my perfect scenerio). This was my first Nokia show (great venue)..but of the eight shows I've seen previously with Jackie in the band, this, by far was the best AND. I do believe the recordings will bear this out.

The song choice kept us guessing all night. At the break, Steve Molitz told me they were looking to change some things up tonight and indeed they did. Too many great songs (and performances of those songs) to mention at this late/early hour.

Great show.. Stellar venue...lots of fun ..all in all an A+ musical experience and all around great night. One angry guy right next to me made a loud fuss during Mts of the moon, but other than him, for the most part we ran across kind people having a great time.

This could have been a get out of town clunker. Instead Phil ended his Philathon with a killer masterpiece.

I was at the last three at the Warfield, completely agree, thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Phil wigglin his butt whilst singing Operator I will take to my grave. Being an East Coaster who never made a NYE show the last show at the Warf was also my first balloon drop, ditto first show to go to 3:30 in the am. Inspirational experience...!

Sad to hear people were too stoned at this. Have witnessed an increase of people collapsing at shows in the past year or so and it's very distracting and disturbing.
Typically it's youngsters who were apparently over served. My fear is that they're overdosing on molly and dying from the heat/dehydration issues that accompany that drug. Odds are they're just drunk but binge drinking can be hazardous as well.
Bottom line is they and everyone dealing with them are not having any fun ...

wow beautiful first set. a terrapin opener!? elevator is always fun. not a huge valley of woe fan but to close it with a morning dew is perfect. 2nd set looks interesting. born cross-eyed into new potato is an interesting way to open. finishes up solidly though, however looks like nothing spectacular.

I thought this was a great show. The Slipknot > jam > Slipknot was pretty high energy as was a nice long Elevator. Nice Morning Dew, but the 1st set seemed to end too soon. Gimme Shelter really rocked, and Jackie even managed an 8 second smile! Shelter > Eyes really worked for me, and kept the momentum going. Then the set seemed to fade a bit, but very nice to hear Midnight Hour. A short Lovelight was a good closer, but would have liked to hear it streched out a bit more.

We sat behind the sbd, so we didn't really know people were collapsing up front. We've been searching for the sound for over 40 years, and some people still don't have it down yet. It's a real shame.

Still had a great time though, and I'm looking forward to T-Rob's d/l. A very heartfelt 'Thank You' for all your efforts.

And good to see you Robert, it's been a while.

Sounds like Phil played one show too many on this run. Equipment problems, bad crowd vibes and people posting here on this board just pretty much ruined any possible good vibe from afar. It is a shame. I loved seeing P&F every time I saw him this year and this year was the first.

There were definitely alot of fucked up people in the crowd...more than any of the shows I've seen on the run. And yes...ALOT more talking than usual...maybe because people were SO fucked up. I too, saw an "almost" fight by the rail in the seat area. This was a much different show vibe than last year's 11/11 (last show). But as always, I enjoyed it alot. It was the best show I'd seen of this run and now I'm tired as hell.

No, you are just wrong. Must be a lot of crusty old farts, because the seats(if that's what you meant) have been full.

AmyG, glad you got to see the finale. Sorry to hear of the vibe though. I wonder if an even longer run made for even more momentum to have a "blowout" time at the final gig?

Hey, in those pics above, I don't see the LED lights lit up at all on Phil's bass. Was that the case??

re "why not just sit in one of the upper decks?
I'm sure they had plenty of room..... "


it is hard to find a seat sometimes in the upper deck, if you didnt "claim" one before the show starts - there seems to be a bunch of people in NYC who take a chair before the show, hang their coat on it, then go down to the floor when the show starts, leaving an empty chair that is "claimed" with someone's coat. It takes some nerve (which i've got) to sit in an empty chair with a coat on it and tell the person who says "there is someone in that seat" that I'll move when they come back - which they dont.



It is kind of like taking two parking spots in a garage by parking at a slant, tho, but it seems like a lot of people think it is okay practice at the nokia.

Great show despite obvious technical difficulties resulting in a false start to Morning Dew as well as what seemed like the longest set break of the run.

The seating area was actually rather cool last night, so I think the perception of it being too hot reflects the overcrowding on the floors combined with some overdosing of substances on the part of a few.

First Set seemed short, but it was totally different than any other first set I've seen Phil do. I was asking myself, "Why doesn't he mix it up this much at all the shows?!"

Slipknot was the most improvisation I've ever seen Phil and his band do. Just guys listening and playing off each other. I thought that might have bene the highlight for me.

Second Set was a monster. I thought the playing and soloing was good, and the song selection should have satisfied some of the high expectations that caused this mid week show to sell out Saturday night.

Loved the balloon drop. Reminds me of New Years. And it feels like a new year. The closing of this magnificent run, a new government elected and the Phillies are World Fucking Champions. Well, maybe co-champions with the Philzone!

Looking forward to whatever Phil bring back east next year. Looks like it could be a 'Dead' reunioin with Warren. I can only hope it is as well done as this incarnation of Phil and Friends.

> I can only hope it is as well done as this incarnation of Phil and Friends.


This is what i was thinking. After the last Dead tour in 2004, I was always missing em, particularly having mickey and billy on drums.

But now, I think the bar is pretty damn high, set by this incarnation of phil and friends. When Jackie is on, his vocals are so true to the dead legacy, it is fantastic. And Larry's playing reinvigorates a lot of the old tunes - I really love how this lineup has brought the old music alive - without just "covering" the songs - they are new and alive.

I just hope that the Dead themselves can do the same. It probably all depends on how eager mickey and billy are about it.

First set was great- the Terrapin was epic.
Long break between sets - phil haven't equipment problems it appeared.
i was right by the people that passed out during the break and during the start of set 2- idiots!
set 2 was great, especially the Born Cross-eyed>
New Potato Caboose> Jam>
Gimme Shelter>
Eyes Of The World>
The Eleven> Jam...
Unbroken Chain> Jam>
sequence
-
mountains of the moon should be retired... phil makes it painful.
and jackie appeared to be "on the nod" maybe he's been breaking into jerry's old stash.

I thought it was my imagination until a couple of people next to me said the same thing.
I was wondering if he dosed actually because he definitely seemed to be in some sort of zone, but I wasn't picking up "junk" energy from him even though he he appeared on a surface level to be on the nod.

terrapin was the best song of the night by far, followed by the dew, both with awesome and mesmerizing jams. the second set was kind of an everything but the kitchen sink approach, just try and play everything ya haven't played lately and mush it all into a set, and in the end we had nice individual songs but the set and ultimately the entire show didn't really peak out like sundays show did with the great stephen-other one- china doll- hard rain, whose show had a drive and purpose that was lost last night. Just no real flow for my money. The wheel- midnight hour closer didn't do it for me. Twas a delicious smorgasboard of music but too much fixins and not enough prime rib and jumbo shrimp. Man, me think its time for lunch. But an A for effort, as always. thankyou Phil!!

the show was great! the best of the shows ive seen this run, all the complaints about the people, what the hell, it IS new york! i had some fights breaking out around me, but its just because people are too uptight. people are going to dance, and maybe even move into your " personal" space, its the nature of the music and of the scence. I was lucky to have made some friends up front who kept the vibes nice and pleasant for me! Thanks Jeannete and Sam (?)


The first set was great, was a powerful Terrapin, Phil was playing so heavy! real high in the mix. Elevator had our bodies movin' and The Dew was truly beautiful.

loved the Eyes, Wheel and Darkstar in the 2nd set, the unbroken chain might have been one of the best versions i've heard!

the balloon drop was fun! Great venue, great band, great fun! see yall next year!

I really enjoyed this show. I was on the floor about 20ft back from Phil for the 1st set and in the "speaker room" on Jackie's side for set two. I experienced none of the crowd tension others have mentioned and didn't see anyone pass out.

Jackie led the intro jam of the show, doing a descending slide figure in 3rds. I was pleasantly surprised to get Terrapin as the first song. Phil said something into the mic right during the intro that seemed like it was meant for the monitors, but got broadcast over the house PA. I don't know what he said, but he gave a kind of sheepish grin to the crowd afterwards.

Terrapin sounded good. Larry was on cittern for the Lady With a Fan part but I couldn't really hear him in the mix. Phil seemed to look right at me with a goofy grin when he sang "you decide if he was wise." Teresa played cheerleader for Terrapin. She wasn't at the mike, but she was smiling and raising her fist in the air for the crowd to sing each "Terrapin!"

The Slipknot that followed was totally out of left field. The intro got big cheers from the crowd. The middle jam didn't seem as pretty and ethereal as the jam in the middle of Saturday's Slipknot, but it definitely was incongruous with a typical GD-style Slip. I actually wrote "Slip intro>jam" in my notes. But I was pleasantly surprised when the Slip outro kicked in.

Since Elevator has a spacey intro. Slipknot didn't go ramming full force into the next tune. Instead, there was a little transition jam that led into the Elevator space.

I'm a big fan of Elevator and it was fun watching Molo totally getting off on the rolls and crescendos. And it was fun watching Molitz in control. For a moment I saw him not even playing anything, he was just dancing behind his keyboards seemingly ecstatic at the monster he'd created.

Down in the Valley Woe was the closest my friend got to the acoustic set that she wanted. Jackie was on acoustic guitar and Larry was on dobro. The song was well played, though I don't really like the effects on Jackie vocals that have been used on recent performances of this song (reverb/delay?) Jackie sat down on a stool for this one. He kind of looked like an invalid. He has a winter hat and scarf on.

I couldn't really see him for most of the second set from my perspective, so I'm not sure how much he sat down. But he did seem a lot more physically active last year, moving around the stage. Maybe he's got a cold. Maybe Big Apple partying has worn him down. I hope he's OK.

Even if he didn't look OK, Jackie sounded OK, though he did seem to take a step back as he has often done when Barry is thrown into the mix.

The false start on Morning Dew had me going "huh?" but once they really started, the performance was good. Phil belted out some lines, making me feel it. And Larry and Barry playing a dual lead towards the end was sweet.

# of song-wise the set was short, but I think it clocked at around an hour, like many of the other 1st sets on the run. I liked the fact that most of the songs seemed like a chunk of the second half of the second set of a P&F show.

Born Cross Eyed>New Potato was an unexpected and enjoyable way to start the set. Molitz's vocals are sounding less tentative in general. I love how New Potato crept up on us and NPC flowed smoothly and unexpectedly into Gimme Shelter. While in many other songs, Teresa Williams doesn't add much for me, she really makes this song with the way she duets with Jackie. This was a crowd pleaser with everyone around me dancing and singing along.

The Eyes that came out of this was excellent, maybe the best part of the show. It seemed longer and more fluid than the previous Eyes of the World I caught on the 14th. I certainly enjoyed this one more. Larry took a great solo which made the crowd erupt at its conclusion.

The Eleven continued the momentum but I don't remember it as being over the top.

Unbroken Chain flowed well out of the post-11 jam and I was very glad to catch it for the first time on this run. Typically intense middle instrumental passage.

I was glad to hear Dark Star, but it was relatively short and didn't go anywhere particularly special.

Mountains of the Moon kept this floating in the ether

The Wheel brought the energy back to earth and got the limbs of the crowd moving.

Midnight Hour is always energetically played by this ensemble, but it's always compact. No real extended solo trading at the end as there were in past P&F lineups.

Lovelight was a great encore though I wish it was longer. Visually, it was a blast with the balloons falling and floating everywhere. The band seemed to be having a lot of fun too.

Wanting to keep the run going for just a moment longer, I was hoping for a second encore to send us home, but the lights came on pretty much right after the last note of Lovelight and the lights were already on when the band stepped to the edge of the stage, playfully kicking balloons, for their final bow.

I had a great time on this run. I was happy to meet a bunch of other Zoners. I enjoyed every show and I had great adventures in NYC

Want to give a big shout out to the Wharf Rats! It is always a pleasure hanging and meeting many of them and I appreciate their positive energy and support for each other and the music.That is what it is about. Excess has always been a challenge of our scene but there is light at the end of the tunnel and when the music plays that we all love and we are all there making it happen, that is a true gift.It helps many of us to be, or at least try, to be that better person and that is why I always go back, it is one of the last great rides in this modern age. We who saw the run are blessed and I awoke this morning looking at the day's light with a deeper understanding and appreciation and ofcoase that shit eating grin too.I wish all the Wharf Rats the best and blessings on their journey. "Keep comin back"

This was my 7th show out of the run and I have to put it up in the top 3 of the entire run. Terrapin and Morning Dew in the 1st set!!!!
First set was short but very sweet!
Second set was killer. I love that they kept jamming from one song to the next without stopping. Eyes and Gimme Shelter were great. Also the end of Unbroken was amazing!
Only thing that could have made it better was if they played Brokedown after the Lovelight.
Overall another great Philathon!!

RE: "jackie appeared to be "on the nod""

Jackie doesn't strike me as the type to be junkin', and I don't think Phil would put up with it if he were. Most likely he was tired though, 14 shows in 19 days in the city that never sleeps will do that.

I don't think the problem was with space to dance. It was the people trying to occupy that space. Bunch of no-respect half wits with no concert etiquette what so ever. Mostly just old assholes, some young, thinking they own everything and should be entitled to things from the mere fact they resembles someone in my fathers generation. Just b/c you look like a marooned Gorton's Fisherman doesnt mean I got sympathy for you.

Jackie was dealing with a bad head cold for most of the run.
That's why he was wearing hats and scarves.
The only thing that would make him nod was the cold medicine he was taking.

I wish phil would do an entire show, one hour first set, two-plus hour second, singing only mts of the moon verses in between long psychadelic jamming. If you don't like phils voice or choice of musicians at this point you probably really do think about waiting for Weir to come around to get your Grateful fix. Don't bash Phil. There are plenty of his fans on this web site who agree...it is the 'Phil zone', he's been singing mts of moon since '98. Phils vocals are unmatched. He is clearly the leader of any hopes of another 'Dead' tour and I am sure he will sing plenty of songs then. At least the important ones.

This was my favorite show of the entire run! Loved it from start to finish and the tension and surprises and peaks and valleys were all so enjoyable. The show felt like an adventure. Phil opened up the cosmos right out of the gates with Terrapin. What a magical night and an incredible run. Thank you Phil and to everyone in attendance! Can't wait to do it again :-)

Loved the Terrapin opener.

Morning Dew was a treat, false start notwithstanding.

Eyes was terrific.

I did not have any trouble with people around me other than some harmless wookies.

I am very grateful that this music still exists for me to enjoy.

GO PHIL!

You do have to wonder about Jackie. He seems to be having a little too much fun between shows, thus the colds and not being able to stand last night. Can't say I haven't done some of the same in my life.

See you all again next year, hopefully.

I saw several people collapse and one have a seizure at one of the Nokia shows I was at...I attributed it to some bad drugs coupled with poor ventilation.


The problem certainly isn't weed. They crack down on that like storm troopers. The problem is with the seven and eight dollar beers being sold at a breakneck pace. At the second show I went to their were amateur drinkers everywhere staggering around and puke all over the mens room. If they would just stop selling beer almost all problems would be resolved, but of course that would mess up their bottom line. Any problems I have ever encountered at shows involved people drinking too much alcohol. I have never had any problems with stoners.

I had my ticket torn by an usher for passing a joint. The deal is that the Nokia shares air with the Lion King next door and folks complain about the ambrosia. The folks I saw collapsing appeared to be more than drunk. I'm thinking it's the "molly" being slung in line. Young folk get spun on that crap and don't drink enough water. Add that to the sufocating scene on the floor and you know what to expect. I think some nights weren't as crowded, I saw the first three of the run and the Sunday show was mellow.

All praise be to the stoners. Oh yeah, and I was the guy lighting up doobies and passing them and saying "welcome to California". See you on NYE...

I'm just tired of the old people who got some story about how they saw 1 jerry/dead show in their life and how they think they are the shit cuz of it and deserve to basically stand in my seat. Oh well, when Phish comes back YOU can play that card on all the n00bs. "Hey I'm beast son, I got signed barfbags from Trey AND Phil, get the fuck outta here".

I had such an amazing time at the show. I'm a n00b (this my sixth Phil or Weir show), but this one got me hooked. I was there on Sunday, and I was by myself and near the front. I was not prepared for the intensity of Terrapin and Elevator. Wow. I completely lost myself, no psychoactives necessary!

I am looking for someone from the show, and I realize this part of the forums isn't dedicated to finding people, but since the show was so recent I thought this might be a good place to post something.

His name is Mike, and I met him in line outside the show. We talked a lot, but unfortunately I don't remember all of the details perfectly because I didn't think we would get separated. He said he saw his first Dead show in the mid 70's (73 or 76, I believe), which makes sense with my estimation of his age. I'd put him at about 50. I am pretty sure he currently lives in Jersey, because he invited me to an open mic he plays in Jersey. He was in a Dead cover band for 8 years and plays guitar. I think he's lived in the Philly area because he was interested to learn what part of Philly a couple of guys were from, but I could be wrong on that. We met up with his sister, Simone, inside. I can't think of anything distinguishing about his looks... he had dark hair, and he was a few inches shorter than I am (I am 6-0). Normal build, not overweight or particularly skinny. He said he was at a Bobby show last week. During the first set, we were standing very close to the front on the right side of the stage. We ended up standing right by/behind the tall, older guy with the beard, red shirt, and jester-like hat. I realize this description is kind of crappy, but maybe someone will have an idea of who he is. We had a great conversation about music and wanted to exchange numbers, and I would really like to share how much the show ended up meaning to me. If anyone has any ideas, please post or message me or whatever :-) Thanks, and I hope you guys had half as much fun as I did!

I already posted a lengthy review the day after this show but here are some more thoughts after listening back to Joe-Beacon's great recording of this night.

I'm thinking that while overall it was an uneven night musically that didn't flow as well as some of the other nights, there were certainly numerous peak moments here to end the run:

Terrapin as a whole was rough but even within it were beautiful little phrases and noodles and Phil's voice on this seemed to seethe with righteous anger. We could talk for days about the technical flaws of Phil's voice, but to me it sounded like he was singing Terrapin like he really meant it. There was a special urgency to it. I'm wondering if he was channeling his frustration with the equipment that seemed to plague him for set 1 (though everything sounded fine to me) and also channeling the bittersweetness of this being the last night of a long run.

The transition from Terrapin to Slipknot was a tad awkward. The band recovered quickly and delivered a great Slip intro, but there's a few moments of rhythmic uncertainty. On this and at other ">" moments in the show you can heard Phil calling out the changes, more so than usual. You can hear him go "too fast!" during this transition. I dunno if he was doing more "conducting" this time around or if stuff was just ending up on the PA more.

I don't quite understand how the PA/Monitor splitter works for Phil's vocal set up. I dunno if some of the obvious "conducting" vocals I heard were really just over the monitors but were audible because of my position up front and the relatively small size of the venue. But even that wouldn't explain how why the tapers picked up all this talk, halfway back from the stage.

But also, I clearly heard Phil blurt out a word or short phrase as the band shift into LWAF. I was up front about 20 ft. back directly in front of Phil, but I can't hear this at all on the recording. So do you think this was just coming from the monitors?

As someone else has already stated on this thread I'd be curious to hear a P&F show where Phil makes a conscious decision NOT to call out the changes and just let the transitions happen more naturally through nods and body language and sonic dialog. I know doing it this way, a lot of what makes P&F what it is would be lost, but they also might get some stunning results doing it the old democratic GD way (but I'm guessing Phil instated this monitor-mic dictatorship as a direct result of the frustrations he felt with the GD's anarchic style of jamming.)

Anyway, back to the music:

Elevator was angry and beautiful. It's been great every single time I've heard P&F do it, but this once seemed to have an increased angry urgency over the 11/2 and 11/8 versions.

Morning Dew really hit me in a way P&F versions rarely do, especially one with Phil singing. This version was really moving. It started soft and fragile and grew to a brilliant climax. As on Terrapin, Phil's vocals seethed with righteous anger and passion. At times he's really belting it out! And the dual lead of Larry and Barry on the end was beautiful.

While Phil's vocals were strong on Dew. I dunno if he just blew his voice out on it because he sounded really weak on the 2nd set New Potato. His vocal weakness was highlighted by how clear and brilliant Teresa's voice sounded like on NPC. I'd like to hear her trying all the vocals. I think Phil really needs to put more air in his lungs when he sings. I like his "belting" style on Dew, Franklins, and Fire on the Mt, but on many other songs it's a mumbly messy. But that's just Phil I guess.

Teresa owns "Gimme Shelter." Enough said.

While the vocal portions of Unbroken Chain were rough, the instrumental portion was fantastic. Molitz's contribution is what really made it for me. He added electronic tones that reminded me of the sounds on the original GD studio version. Also, his Fender Rhodes-esque sounds during the transition back into the closing vocal portion were beautiful especially the way they meshed with the guitars. The band extended this portion maybe because Phil kept missing his entrance or maybe because he really liked what Molitz was doing and wanted to hear it again and again. Phil vocals seemed really weak in a "lost my voice" sort of way for this ending portion. His "la-dah-dah" vocals are barely audible.

I didn't even realize Larry was on dobro when I heard Dark Star in person, but it sounds great in on the recording. Jackie's humming slide part is great too. Phil's vocals are really weak on this but their whispery fragility somehow works beautifully. As others have noted, this version never takes off into space-jam-ether territory but this is a strong version of "Dark Star the song" not Dark Star the jam platform. This version highlighted for my ears what a strong piece of music the melody of Dark Star is.

Phil's vocals seem stronger on MotM than on the other set 2 songs. They're really sweet and understated in a good way.
Laugh if you want but, the way he sings "more than la-ove you may sow" is gorgeous. His voice is soft but he's actually annuciating clearly (NOTE TO PHIL: what ever you did on this song, do it more!) As always, Larry's cittern really makes this song. This is a more compact and rhythmically-strong version than Phil has played in 2007 and earlier

This Dark Star>MotM combo sounds like the two songs were made for each other. This could become one of those pairings like China>Rider, Scarlet>Fire.

The transition into Wheel is marred for me by the fact that you can hear ALL of Phil's directions for key changes and counting off. This destroys the feeling/illusion of spontaneity and natural flow. Be that as it may, this is a strong version. Molitz's near falsetto vocals are more prominent here than I remember previously. Overall, this show might be Molitz's strongest individual performance of the run. His vocals on this, the 11, and Born Cross-Eyed are better (if not great) and more confident than I've ever heard before with P&F and his keyboards are essential to the success of many instrumental moments. And of course we got a peak version of his Elevator.

Lovelight is really enthusiastically played though it is a short version. It's bittersweet because of course we all wanted more.
We wanted a 3rd set or at least a double encore. My heart sank a little when the lights came up immediately afterwards, killing the chance for a soft "send us home" 2nd encore such as "Brokedown" or "AWBYGN" Oh well.

I'm glad the balloons popping like crazy after the show made it onto the recording. They reminded me of the sound of fireworks. This was the finale celebration. I was reminded in a way of the firework sounds that bittersweetly close-out the AUD of GD 7/9/95. but for Phil and his Friends I'm pretty sure this won't be THE LAST ONE!

After hearing this show again as a recording I was reminded of the understated caveat from Dicks Picks #1: "what you hear is what you get. And what you get ain't bad!"

I already posted a lengthy review the day after this show but here are some more thoughts after listening back to Joe-Beacon's great recording of this night.

I'm thinking that while overall it was an uneven night musically that didn't flow as well as some of the other nights, there were certainly numerous peak moments here to end the run:

Terrapin as a whole was rough but even within it were beautiful little phrases and noodles and Phil's voice on this seemed to seethe with righteous anger. We could talk for days about the technical flaws of Phil's voice, but to me it sounded like he was singing Terrapin like he really meant it. There was a special urgency to it. I'm wondering if he was channeling his frustration with the equipment that seemed to plague him for set 1 (though everything sounded fine to me) and also channeling the bittersweetness of this being the last night of a long run.

The transition from Terrapin to Slipknot was a tad awkward. The band recovered quickly and delivered a great Slip intro, but there's a few moments of rhythmic uncertainty. On this and at other ">" moments in the show you can heard Phil calling out the changes, more so than usual. You can hear him go "too fast!" during this transition. I dunno if he was doing more "conducting" this time around or if stuff was just ending up on the PA more.

I don't quite understand how the PA/Monitor splitter works for Phil's vocal set up. I dunno if some of the obvious "conducting" vocals I heard were really just over the monitors but were audible because of my position up front and the relatively small size of the venue. But even that wouldn't explain how why the tapers picked up all this talk, halfway back from the stage.

But also, I clearly heard Phil blurt out a word or short phrase as the band shift into LWAF. I was up front about 20 ft. back directly in front of Phil, but I can't hear this at all on the recording. So do you think this was just coming from the monitors?

As someone else has already stated on this thread I'd be curious to hear a P&F show where Phil makes a conscious decision NOT to call out the changes and just let the transitions happen more naturally through nods and body language and sonic dialog. I know doing it this way, a lot of what makes P&F what it is would be lost, but they also might get some stunning results doing it the old democratic GD way (but I'm guessing Phil instated this monitor-mic dictatorship as a direct result of the frustrations he felt with the GD's anarchic style of jamming.)

Anyway, back to the music:

Elevator was angry and beautiful. It's been great every single time I've heard P&F do it, but this once seemed to have an increased angry urgency over the 11/2 and 11/8 versions.

Morning Dew really hit me in a way P&F versions rarely do, especially one with Phil singing. This version was really moving. It started soft and fragile and grew to a brilliant climax. As on Terrapin, Phil's vocals seethed with righteous anger and passion. At times he's really belting it out! And the dual lead of Larry and Barry on the end was beautiful.

While Phil's vocals were strong on Dew. I dunno if he just blew his voice out on it because he sounded really weak on the 2nd set New Potato. His vocal weakness was highlighted by how clear and brilliant Teresa's voice sounded like on NPC. I'd like to hear her trying all the vocals. I think Phil really needs to put more air in his lungs when he sings. I like his "belting" style on Dew, Franklins, and Fire on the Mt, but on many other songs it's a mumbly messy. But that's just Phil I guess.

This night's performance was a spectacular effort by Phil to finish up this amazing run with a hit parade of tunes that any die-hard would love to hear, and I personally thank him for that. I thought that the performace of these songs was superb for the most part while perhaps being difficult to tie together in a flowing, evolving 1st and 2nd set sort of manner. I'm grateful that I was able to be there and only regret that one, it was a work night and two, that it was soooo crowded and a bit uncomfortable. I expect that listening to Joe B's recording this weekend will be a real treat in the comfort of home.....many thanks Phil.

Nice follow-up review Sebastian.

Having only listened to the recording, I agree with you completely.

Luv the way TW stays true to gimme shelter, with the verse...Blood, murder, its just a shot away. Joan never did that. Also I am not an idiot and I believe Phil's voice is great, always has been, even in 73 when box first came out. His backup vocals have always been right on time as well. If you are looking for trey or someone elses voice maybe you should stick on Phish tour. I personally don't like trey's voice but you wont see me on a Phish web site bashing him. Maybe you don't think there were any good shows in the 90's either. Whatever. In the old days he might not have been confident in his vocals but the rest of the band sure enjoyed them..He sang three songs at the last Grateful Dead show and sang the last Grateful Dead song ever played. He carried the band through the last tour. He now carries the torch like Jerry did. If your kids think phils voice is funny, don't let them listen to bobby nowadays. They might get scared and cry. Who else can sing grateful dead songs, Micky Hart? Enough said.

Sebastiananxiety - you hit the nail on the head with that statement!

Gregory,

great post about Phil's voice, he sings very well... always in tune, the quality and tone of his voice is just some people aen't used too. I personally like it.

phil has perfect pitch. perfect timbre is subjective however. I love Phil's singing most of the time.

Phils pitch is usually good, but I think most can agree his tone and range do not measure up to Teresas. In the first set, she sauntered out to sing the harmony on: Since the end is never told we pay the teller off in gold in hopes he will come back but he cannot be bought or sold Terrapin lyric. Except for that, she was backstage and underutilized for the first set. The playing on Morning Dew was excellent. It would have been epic if she was tapped to sing this Morning Dew.

I believe I am the "angry" guy behind the sound board that is mentioned in this thread. To set the record straight, that section cost an additional $150 a person. I personally paid for 3 people with consideritdan. During the second half of the show security decided not to "police" the people entering the area and when I asked the person who was shoving my wife and I where his wristband was he climbed up my backside. He threatend both my wife and I with violence with is a misdemeanor (assault) in the state of ny. I asked security to remove him and his "posse". That is when he took it to the next level and threatened to "kick my arse and attack my wife". That was all I could stand for.

I will never attend another show at the Nokia theater and will never purchase another product from Consideritdan. Out of the ~100 Grateful Dead related shows I have seen this one was by far the worst experience. I was thoroughly disgusted with the crowd!
