I thought I would get this one rolling. I'm sitting here at work getting nothing done, because I'm to euphoric about Phil playing two sets here tomorrow night. Whoever made the call to make the change and have Phil play two full sets and close the show THANK YOU! I almost skipped this show, but with the reviews and "the change" there was no way I would miss it! I went to see WSP & SCI at Sandstone on Friday and all I could think about was seeing Phil. I know I should have gone to Red Rocks instead. Anyone else thinking the same thing? Planning to miss Sandstone and head North? I do not know what to think of Willie Nelson and Junior Brown being on the bill, guess we'll see…
Despite my late change of mind my seats aren't bad Sec 5, Row V (22) Seat 1
See you in the aisle tomorrow night ;)
Don't know what to make of Willie??? Listen up: Willie Rocks!
Willie is going to blow the doors off the joint. If you haven't ever seen Willie Nelson live, you do not understand what you're missing. Willie and Phil is the most exciting line up of the summer. Seeing Willie is something you'll never forget, guaranteed. He is a true showman, a fooking all star!!! Phil should tour with Willie everytime. All I can say is I wish I was going. Anybody have some free money to get me from Cali to Kansas?
I'm with you eagle....I'm travelling many a mile to see Willie and Phil at Camden. Hound, it's good stuff, one of the ingredients of GD gumbo. Junior Brown is pretty bad ass...guitar genius with a classic country voice. I've seen both these guys kick ass....combine that with Phil and you are one lucky dude.
"Seeing Willie is something you'll never forget, guaranteed."
I'll second that. The same people that took me to my first Dead show also turned me on to Willie. It was at Red Rocks in 75 or 76 and it was fantastic. We always called him Grateful Willie after that beause of the length of the show and the variety of songs. You'll have a great time.
Things just get better and better. This band is amazing and I am counting the days until I can see them at the SPAC.
For everyone on tour and everyone at the shows, remember to leave only footprints and to clean up after the party.
Also, all of you mid-west freaks have to start posting the set-lists before the rest of us explode at our keyboards. I have been driving my girlfriend nuts trying to stay up to find the postings (one cannot rest until he or she has seen the setlist)
Peace, love and be good.
We are very lucky to be experiencing this wonderful music.
Yes, Indeed. Willie and Friends! Phil and Family! Willie will blow your mind for those of you who have never seen him. "Wiskey River Take My Mind!!" Especially if he pulls out some tunes from Teatro. I saw him do damn near the entire album at Farm Aid in 98 and I nearly soiled myself. The Red Headed Stranger will warp your mind...I am also traveling many-a-mile to catch a Phil and Willie show. Epic moment in music history...
Once again, showing My age...
First time I saw Willie, He Opened for The Dead at the Meadowlands, 9/2/78....This was when he was just getting recognition in Country Music circles...didn't expect much, figured it would be walk-around-crowd-watching time...boy, was I wrong! At first, the heads just sorta ignored him, but about the 3rd song of his set, we were all up groovin'...
gd, dry willie (nelson), wet willie]
Jinpa, I think you're confused..Englishtown was 9/3/77: NRPS, Marshall Tucker Band, GD...
HEY I WAS (not) THERE. SO I SHOULD KNOW. AND IF I'M EVER (not) THERE AGAIN, I'LL ALSO KNOW.
Willie, in person, I presume...
Willies set list .
Crypictal,Wisky in the jar, Other One , Wisky, Crazey, On the road agin, Candyman , Stolen Roses , New Orleans.
...thats what i herd in the live chat
any setlist for phil yet? thanks so much for all the comments, keep up the good work!
thats gotta be a bunk setlist
Section 102, Row B, ....yeah baby!!!
are you sure willie wasen't playing that with P&H???
Come on! Where are the setlists at??
I too, am a little skeptical of that setlist! But, I gotta say, the people going to tonight's show are some very lucky folks! Ya, of course, P&H, but also Willie & Junior Brown? Willie is the consummate story teller through his songs, and Junior Brown is one of the most talented guitar players of any kind! I don't expect them to get the appreciation they deserve tonight, but hopefully I'm wrong. Truly lucky, they are!
setlist from dewit who got it from mike (thanks guys)
only one 2 1/2 hour set:
Quilt-Jam-Dark Star-Wheel Enc: Scarlet/Fire
Geez... getting any decent info out of the mid-west is like getting a deadhead to sober up!
How was the scene?
How was Willie?
What's up in the heartland tonight?
What a confounding way to wake up! Whoever posted the Willie setlist knows enough about what Willie plays to make me think "Willie didn't really do the other one.....did he?" And the single Phil set is a surprise....as much as I want to see williw and hot tuna in a couple of weeks I would like 2 sets of phil. Maybe after a cup of coffee it'll be less confusing.
Y'all, not everyone in the deadhead universe is a cybergeek (like us) who calls in setlists or turns on the computer right after the show. Be patient, amigos....
Hey, I cannot do color reviews in Kansas when I am from the east. To the moron imitating TC last nice you s....!!!!!!
>To the moron imitating TC last nice you s....!!!!!!
I'd really like to know more about Willie's set...besides Cryptical and The Other One it seems believable to me...
Anyone have any insight into why only one set from Phil last night? The "official" site's tour calender states specifically the venue was prepared for "two full sets" from P&F. peace, h
I did read on a willie nelson site that he played two hours....which is only a little less than what he usually plays when he headlines, but he usually plays about a gazillion songs. So, unless he did a really long other one jam (not likely), the whole thing is bogus. You can bet he did crazy and on the road again, and probably city of new orleans, but you can also bet he played a bunch of other stuff. I really am hoping to hear him do a rendition of a Jerry tune or two in PA.
Maybe the Phil realized they'd run into curfew probs if they tried 2 sets?
Thanks to the guys who got the setlist.
Hey, David Collins, if you get a chance, drop a line and let us know whether you liked Willie and Junior (and what the hell happened)
To clarify what I can, btw, hi Hillary, last night an a.....e pretending to be Tapecat came in and verified this bogus Willie setlist. Since it seemed to be TC, we bought into it, all damn night. He posted other bogus shit, which almost seemed normal, but wasn't, and was also posted.
All of us are just a tad pissed. TC, you should be livid. It actually got worse than that. Bali and Mrs. TC were also bogusly present. There was stupidity all evening-which I was able to zone out of, lucky me.
A very nice guy named Scott called me after the show and gave me the setlist. He couldn't make it for Willie, so no info on the Willie set(s).
If you are going to shows with a cell, there are plenty of honest folk out there willing to take a call or two, or more, but lets not get greedy, with a list. If you choose to add a comment, great. It would be honestly appreciated by those of us who are psyching ourselves for upcoming shows, or wishing we could make it to more.
Thanks for everything Scott. Need your address for the little surprise.
My god that was some mighty fine jams. These guys really blow me away every time. We showed up late so I missed Junior Brown and most of Willie. Bootin myself in the ars for it, but heck I got my fix though. These guys are magic. They really take you on a trip threw the cosmos with those space jams and I didn't even have any help. Well maybe a little...
I'm a Kansas City Deadhead that was at the show last night (Front Row - in front of Phil). The setlist above is accurate. Don't know why only one set, but MAN was it a killer. Dark Star must have been an hour long. When they went into "The Wheel", everytime they stopped singing & went back into instrumental mode, it just kept gravitating back to Dark Star. (Guess the wheel couldn't escape the dark star gravity well). After they finished the set, the boys just looked at each other as if to say HOLY SHIT, was that hot!
We can only hope for the other Willie Tuna shows that Acoustic HT plays during the break while they set up for Phil, they did that during the first Further Tour...we need 2 set's of Phil with Willie an Jorma jamming along.
yeah it was hot man, great show,,,blah blah blah, man listen up you kansas virgins, tell us something we don't already know, Like Some Facts About the Show. you guys ever hear of reetin, ritin and rithmitic,,man internet free states should be boycotted in the future,,,now go back to your henhouse you bucktooth overall wearin hedgehog.

Geez, that was harsh but funny.
How long was the Phil set?..Details we need details
Well, I DO declare! Us hicks in the sticks just ain't used to such gracious, friendly conversation from all y'all easterners. I may have been a little lacking in detail, and a bit over exuberant, but pokin' 'round the chicken coop just gets me all xcited! Dude, I've been following the band since 80, & seen over a hundred shows. I think I can recognize a good show when I see one. I've only seen about a half dozen "Rat Dog/Other One/Phil & Friends" shows (Doin' that family thing, now), but that one last night tops anything I've seen since 94. (including the last 4 or 5 dead shows I saw!)If you want details, my minds a little fuzzy still, but ask a question & I'll see what my feeble, farm-boy, drug-laden brain can recollect. That's it for the farm report.
any word on the willie set list or what?
I take offense to the Easterner comment. An asshole is an asshole, no matter what part of the world they live in. To abuse someone like that is bs, and in my opinion not terribly funny.
and now a word from california. everone mellllllllllooooowwwwwww ouuuuuutttttt.
all good things in all good time.
The show was definately hot last night. I
think the whole band really fed off the Junior
Brown/Willie Nelson vibe. Willie opening with
whiskey really got the place goin. The band
sounded pretty tight, and his sister can
definately smoke on the piano, although I wish
they had her turned up louder.
What can you say about Phil other than they
rock. I saw riverport the night before and
thought this show was alot more intense. You can
tell they got off on "charlie" I dont think they
wanted to quit. The scarlet/fire closer was a
real treat !
Phil Set: Start 8:30 Finish: ~ 10:30
Dark Star was started about 9:30 & dominated the rest of the set. They took about a 10 minute break & then did a 20-25 min Scarlet-Fire. The encore ended about 11:05.
Warren really adds some juice to the lineup. It was interesting that Warren had the lead during the transitions in China-Rider & Scarlet-Fire. While the rest of the band did their slow, gradual transition, Warren gave a definitive 'this is the end of this, here is the start of that' change. The transition in DS from DS to The Eleven & back was very smooth, but with The Wheel, the jam->verse->jam transitions were very abrupt, and the jams still felt like DS.
Didn't mean to offend anyone (some of my best friends are easterners), but I had to defend my honour. I grew up in a million-plus city & know about as much about farming as I do about migration patterns of the South American tse-tse fly.
The henhouse post was a little harsh and not funny at all,but how do you know it was an easterner or whatever.
It would be nice to get the real Willie setlist.
I be an easterner and jinpa is the only one being rude, not raysan. Also, I know about englishtown, and that pa guy was not there if he thinks he saw willie nelson. I remember the Polish Railroad , and Bob sayin "Y'all hang out with the bugs. " before the set break. If jinpa was there, I'd like him to say what the backdrop to the stage was. This is an EASY question....
skeleton head with crossbone thru it
btw einstein 85, if you ever learned to read you'd see i said i wasn't there however i do have an awesome pic with the said backdrop. now go back to your hashbong and stay away from things that can hurt you, like computers.
Sorry for the late post on the set list. I kept getting booted of the network last night. By now you have figured out the set posted for Willie was bogus. Willie was outstanding, however. Thanks guys for encouraging me to get out of the lot and into the show for Willie. When I first posted I said "I don not know what to think about Willie and Junior", I'll now have to say I really liked the contrast and in no way am I disappointed that Bob & Rob did not stay on after Riverport.
Just a few quick things to add. I'll try to get my head straight for a more in depth review of Willie and the boys latter. But first Why Only One Set? Two reasons: Willie did not leave the stage until about 7:40. Phil played a Wooly Mammoth of a show. He took the stage at 8:20 played until 10:20. The band to a short break, Phil came out to, thank the crowd and reminded us all of the importance of being organ donors, introduced the band. He then leaned over toward Rob and said "Let's just goof around with this one, in G". At 10:40 out comes Scarlet>Fire.
By the time Phil got on stage the band had to consider the curfew issue and the fact is Dark Star got so far out there that there was no way to bring it back and take a set break. This was a real treat and I'm glad they did not try to reel it in and play two sets! I just wish I could have planned my head accordingly. I thought the break was going to come after patchwork, but then I could start to hear Dark Star coming. As it started to take off I thought well we'd get a DS reprise they'll take a break and then pick it back up. NOPE NADA, first verse is coming. Surely this will be a first verse only, then a break and they'll maybe pick it back up. You guest it! Nope, here comes the 11 and the show goes on. I felt that there was a real Spanish Jam feel coming out of the second verse of DS, don't know if anyone else felt it or if it was just me. I did not total feel my groove until mid-way through Cosmic Charlie. I do not know if it's being in the bright sun and having bombs drop on from the beginning or what. As the sun set and the moon began to rise the teeth and growl of the show came out (DS/11/DS).
(2hrs) Jam>Friend of the Devil>Jam>Cosmic Charlie, China Cat Sunflower> I Know You Rider, Patchwork Quilt> Dark Star (1st v) > The Eleven> Dark Star (2nd v)> The Wheel
(20 min) E: Scarlet Begonias> Fire on the Mountain
What Treat! The changes in this band over the past year are remarkable (Warren)!
For those waiting in the wings for the band to make to you, Enjoy! I'll be waiting for your post.
For those others get up and GO!
who cares about the backdrop??? did willie play "i'm a memory"? man, that guy smokes.
Thanks hound...glad you got to see Willie and Jr and glad you dug it. godblessamerikka
"./`How do you solve a problem like a Jinpa...How do you take a jerk and calm it down?./`"
My GAWD, man...did you see a bad show...are you jealous of these other kind folks or something?..not that there seems to have been a bad show, but really, what's the problem?!
Anyway, you folks are raising my spirits higher and higher (well, most of you, anyway)...I can't wait for the Hartford/Saratoga Springs/Merriweather shows, or the Pittsburg So Many Roads!..The spirit grows large!
I'm glad it's still flowing...
Foghorne, How did I know it was an easterner? I didn't, it was a guess, but I figured it didn't come from the midwest, that eliminates Ohio to Nevada. Those I know from the west might think something like that but would be too polite to say it (let alone post it on such a national forum). And from going to a school in the southeast (FIT), with about 90% of the student body coming from the northeast, I got to know (& befriend) many from that region. As probably many of us have noticed during our travels, there is a certain 'aggressiveness' exhibited by many from that region. This probably comes from the greater population density, making it a little harder to succeed, and promoting a need for aggressiveness to advance & even to maintain.
keep in mind this is a sociological profile and I know everyone there doesn't fit into this category. Some of my best, most unassuming friends are from there. Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox now, (even ol' jinpa is probably a decent sort once you get to know him). I just want to read more comments about last night's show!
Ignorance is not bliss, it is dangerous. Bigots are unacceptable, and that goes for your ridiculous statements about Easterners, which happens to include Southeasterners, East being East. Upbringing is upbringing and rudeness is rudeness. BTW, did you happen to know that there is an FIT in New York City?
I think you folks are overreacting to jinpa's post. In bad taste? yes. Humorous? yes. Laugh at yourselves already! Laugh at life! Laugh at people already!
Life isn't that serious, I do believe it was posted in jest. Besides, there ARE a lot of chawbacky buck toofs creeping around Kansas and Missouri etc.. everytime I travel through Missouri I end up getting hassled by the cops, same with Texas. And there's no stickers on my truck either!
But, you know, there's a lot of chawbacky's out here in Cali too. (And the East coast has its fair share of transplanted hillbills and genuine a-holes as well).
Did Willie play "Sad Songs and Waltzes"?
>>> Bigots are unacceptable.
Quit throwing terms around that don't apply. What is unacceptable is people who get their panties all bunched up over some goofy post on the internet. Get over yourself and go save the whales or something important.
My two cents. Did Willie play "Everybody's Talking"? He does a great version of that song on one of his more recent records.
well..I did a quick search of Willie's site and..nada....but the consensus was that the ol' Outlaw was in rare form..."best Willie ever"
Phil does bring out the best in the best.
big urban areas..quicker personalities
rural areas...slower personalities
it's not an East,South, West or North thing.
The people outside of,say Fargo, most likely complain about how the folks in Fargo are too damn fast.
why is everyone being so mean today? east coast, west coast, mid-west, who cares. everyone needs to get along.
Think about watching a flag rippling in the wind...
...are you seeing the flag or the wind?
(A moment of Zen to restore calm)
>An asshole is an asshole, no matter what part of the world they live in.
Hey we pride ourselves out east on being flaming, screaming rectal cavitities.
Now let me in your house so i can whizz in your sink!
gotta love the philzone.....quotes from 'the sound of music'. who would a' thunk it?
Back to the matter at hand. In a recent interview with Phil he said: "I make up the set lists so that each set (and each show) tells a story or describes a journey. I try to avoid the obvious couplings, segues, and sequences and to plan the sets so as to make the potential transitions as interesting as possible."
What stories have been told over the past 11 shows? (Hum, Is that why they played The eleven?)
Name the show and what's the story? Any takers?
yeah and the reason they played the eleven at the second show at Greek is because 2 divided by 2 is 1 which is 1 of eleven. yeah got it. thanks.
An' I want it RIGHT NOW!!!!!!
Geez- we all better go get stoned.....
Welcome to whatever the hell they call this decade :)
I attended a couple of the berkeley Greek shows and those shows seemed to have had an oldschool flavor to them, busting with tunes like he said, she said, doin that rag, MTs of the moon, and of course the other one. Mayme these older song selections in berkeley, sparked fond memories of Phil's youth in the city. Other than that theory, the shows I saw there were solid and had good energy. except for the fact that some gypse thive tried his darnedest to steal my back pack without success. I have my eye out for you, you long silver haired, denim wareing bastard.
You insinuate you were there. Actually, I think you're just a kid and heard someone talk about the show. The show was in 77 not 78, in case you were interested. Check a deadbase for the facts. It is the cover from the Terrapin Station album used as a backdrop, so you are close in your explanation. BY the way, that's Mr. Einstein to you, kid. now....go post to whatever other interest you may have and quit insulting people here. PLEASE???
Thank you Dossman. Today seems to be bad vibe in the Zone day. We are looking for callers, get in touch.
Let's not get sucked into this any furthur. This
is not what we are about. Leave this kind of
stuff for Marylin Manson's boards. "We are all
brothers and sisters" There is enough anger,
hate and 'meanieness' outside these digital
People who don't quite get it are always going
to make statements that are frustrating to us.
What makes us what we are is our ability to
control the emotional tendency to strike back
and use our intellectual ability to ignore or
make a kind comment and move on.
The true tradgedy of Jinpa's statements is that
they lived on through the rest of us through
postings all day long. I find it ironic that as I
read down the screen, after every great review
this negative stuff is pulling me back just as
everything pulled back to Dark Star last night.
Its there... lurking.
Sorry if I sound like a preacher, I just truly
believe that we are all better than this.
Otherwise, take what we have here, multiply it
a few hundred times and you have politicians
throwing the bodies of young men on their
problems. I know, that sounds extreme.
Maybe it is. But it's true. Love each other, show
it in every action. It is what sets us apart and
makes it all worth while.
DANG--anyone ever going to post that Willie setlist? I wanna know what, if anything, got covered. I knew that setlist was bogus! Can't believe folks bolted before Phil. Their loss. We saw that a lot on the Phil/Dylan Tour last summer. On the upside, in a reserved setting, those same folks would give up their stubs for the fans. In the spirit of things...it all worked out for the best.
BTW as for me,
THE SHIP IS BLASTING THROUGH ON
TUESDAY AND I CANT WAIT TO GET ON!
SETLISTS MAKE MY CRY TEARS OF JOY
This is unreal!
flossman seriously what is wrong with your reeding skills??? noone has said that englishtown was in 78. furthermore it's not the cover of terrapin it's the back. the cover is the dancing turtles (terrapins) at the station. the back is the crossbone through the skelton head. so yes i am not only close i am on bullseye while you have yet to come down from your kynd tootsierollpops.
superslingy, concerning your very HIGH and mighty post, the "true tradgedy" is that the youth of today can't reed rite or spell TRAGEDY or worthwhile!!
Taking a deep breath... many deep breaths.
I will agree it's been a bad day in the zone so far as i said earlier. it's now well into showtime of the somerset concert and we've yet to receive one just one comprehensive report out of the jaybirds on the sandstone affair. Nothing on the venue, the scene, the size, the willie breakdown, junior brown, the friends outing. You guys are the weakest link. Pretty sad wankbirds. goodbye.
"It's been rough and rocky traveling, but I'm finally standing upright on the ground
And after takin' several readin's, I'm surprised to find my mind still fairly sound..."
Willie list? Anyone? Anyone? Buhler? This is getting outta hand. Dig out the notepads and fill us in...
Here...I'll start it off for y'all:
Whiskey River > ? Stay a Little Longer ? > ? ... ? > ? Whiskey River ?
Anything from Teatro? Me and Paul? Smoke Smoke Smoke that Cigarette? Workin' Man's Blues? Jambolya? My Own Peculiar Way? Georgia? Good Hearted Woman? Any Dead Tunes? The Maker? C'mon, man, what's the story. Don't let a little negativity scare you away...Don't be shy...Willie List? Anyone?
Please Please Please shead a little light on the willie set list.
See ya in Virgina, Raleigh, and Charlotte
Wow! They're just words. Take them or leave them. Please.
BTW, not surprised that Scarlet>Fire was whipped out last night (maybe a little surprised that it took until last night). I caught a very serious hint of Scarlet on Sat night at Red Rocks right before the gentleman in the audience screamed out for St. Stephen. I believe that gentleman pre-empted a Scarlet>Fire encore at the Rox on Saturday. JMO.
Wow, what a bunch of lame posts in the last half of this review... If you can't stick to the immediate topic you should at least make it witty and appropriate.
I'm reminded of the difference between an overly ethusiastic/DeadBase knowing type that goes to shows and is critical and may or may not (in actuality) have a great time and one who doesn't know so much and has a fuckin' mind blowing experience... I was once a DeadBase, setlist, tape freak and it damn near ruined me. Now, luckily, I take it as it groovily and unexpectedly comes. And Thank God for that! Fuck the boring-ass old Dead days with their shitty, boring, lugborious playing (80-90's generally). Thank goodness for Phil's hipness, try not to drag things down with your all knowing, yet boring critiques. Peace.
"Amen, brotha Erik...If Lovin' the Lord is wrong...Then I don't wanna be right! He helped Daniel get out the lion's den! He helped Joshua...Fight the Battle of Jericho! He Helped Gilligan...GET OFF THE IIIIIISLAND!
Yes...Yes, Indeed...Sexual Chocolate, Everybody!!! Sexual Chocolate!!"
So, Who's got the Willie List??? Like a cross-eyed David Byrne, I'm......Stiiiiillllll Waitttiiiinnngggg...
Here's what I can remember from the Willie set. I was familiar with many of the songs, but I have to admit this was my first time seeing him and will probably not get the titles right. Not in any particular order: Whiskey River (Chorus), Georgia, Always On My Mind, Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys, On the Road Again, Another Chorus of Whiskey River, On The Bayou, New Orleans, Poncho and Lefty. (No Jerry Songs, a couple of Hank Williams covers though) Some song about a My milk cow is gone…? Can anyone else help out? I'm a Struggling Man…
David C. <- thanks for the willie songs...
my milk cow = milk cow blues?
where you at in the granite state?
Why is everyone against this Jinpa guy? Did he say something I missed? He made some statements about hayseeds in the mid-west -- clearly in jest -- and everybody has to attack him?
P.S. Not everyone is into the "one love" thing. Some people have been persecuted for too long to buy into it. Sorry, but you live through genocide and see if you feel love for your "brothers and sisters".
I was wondering if anyone was gonna catch the "sound of music" reference...
All I have left to say is...poor jinpa...sorry we aren't quicker with the breakdowns of each and every subtle nuance of a show and it's venue. We really seem to have ruined something special for you. Anyway I'm super-psyched...The reviews have been wonderfully tantalizing for me...I'm having a hard time focusing on work.
>Yes...Yes, Indeed...Sexual Chocolate, Everybody!!! Sexual Chocolate!!"
"that boy's goooooood!"
"I THOUGHT IT WAS THE TRASH!"
I think I remember a mama tried from willie's set... the City of New Orleans was my highlight. Just wish they'd turned up his sound a bit more. I think his final song was Milk Cow blues - 90% of the crowd was up and jamming.
Go EARLY folks. We missed all of Junior Brown and half of Ratdog due to our slackness....
Finally, without trying to be negative (way too much of that already) I wish Phil would have taken better care of the willie fans. I guess most of the songs they would have liked are Bobby songs, but shoot - it was disappointing to have to watch the willie fans (of ALL ages, btw) try to find the groove and not be successful. Sitting in the back of the lawn section, we watched as one by one they left early, shaking their heads.
All in all a spectacular time for this head though...
Also, there were flyers under our windshield wipers claiming Ratdog for two shows here in early October - both in extremely small venues here in KC.
>>You guys are the weakest link. Pretty sad wankbirds. goodbye.
It think it's these types of statements that are setting people off. They were made early on, too (aside from the joking around). I'm honestly not interested in ganging up on this guy. Shit, I'm not even upsetoffendedsaddenedwhatevered by him. But it's kind of, well, strange, to have all of the reviews laced with these sentiments. It just confuses me in a way, I guess. That's all it is for me. I don't know about all the fighting over who's been to what when and how many times. I don't like either side of those dialogues.
Heres some more Willie songs he sang, Crazy,
Will the cirlcle be unbroken, oh, and the song
he sang with kermit in the muppet movie, hope
this helps some...
Go see willie !! it was great to see phil on
the side of the stage, during Junior Brown, AND
What's all this talk about Willie?
Heck, after "The Wheel" i pretty much forgot about everything else.
PS. Rainbow Connection was the "Kermit" song
Eric you says you used to be a deadbase type, ect...Did you go to shows in the 80's or in 90? That is a mighty strong statement/indictment to the GD for the last 15 years of their run. If it was that bad I hope you found something you liked. You sound somewhat ...bitter. Hope you find a good Therapist! Good Luck!!! Thanks to those who posted the Willie Stuff. I bet that song was "milk cow blues". Maybe he'll do Cryptical in Camden (right) ;-) Willie doin Candyman, tho.... thinkin on that one
Sincerely, flossman85 (for jinpa)
Well folks, greetings from the heartland. I would have written sooner, but it took me two days to log in. What was that stuff about technocracy back in '72? Anyway I was sittin' over in Seat 7 Row P which was pretty cosmic, Charlie, since that is exactly where I sat the night before in St. Louis. Now this was no planned deal, you see I got the Kansas City ticket by random draw. Anyhow, Junior Brown played a righteous set in a hot environment and then Willie and his sister, Bobby Sue, walked on to a deserved standing ovation and this is what he played, brothers and sisters:
1. Whiskey River (Of course)
2. Stay All Night (Stay a little longer)
3. She's a Good Hearted Woman
4. Ain't It Funny How Time Slips Away
5. Crazy > The Night Life
6. Bobby Sue her standard piano rag
7. Haggard's Working Man's Blues (Sung by Jody)
8. Help Me Make It Through The Night
9. A small jam into Bobby McGee
12.All Of Me

There you have it friends, and now I'd like to leave you with these two or maybe three thoughts:
Teresa of Avila said, "Patience gains all things."
HE said, "Whatever you ask for you will receive"
and HE said, "Peace be with you"
Right on darjeeling!! Willie Nelson is seriously rightous.
You know, this computer thing is a good thing and all, but I don't blame folks for wanting to hang out after the show, sleep late, before even trying to type. Besides, with folks being so nasty when someone does try to pass on snippets about the show, I'd be afraid to review.
The midwest is probably boycotting the mean and nasty philzone....they look at their computers and say "I could, but let them stew....."
Yes, in the aftermath, that is nice a conclusion.
I've been away from home and computers,
and could barely wait to talk about the
Saw Oklahoma City, and loved the scene and
shows, but Bonner Springs, KS was the shit,
Several important things to consider for us
and the scene's future.
First, the heart of the scene beats strongly and
loudly. We are still everywhere, as evidenced
by the numbers of peaceful, descent folks who
turned out to welcome Phil and his fellow
bandmates. Also, like the song says, "new
ones coming as the old ones go." Lots of
wonderful kids who can carry the vibe forward
For example, classic Dead Show stories still
abound. Met two girls, about 19, from Omaha,
NE who'd hitched to the show after their car's
engine locked up on the highway. They said it
might've had something to do with the fact that
they drove the car at 80 in second gear, but go
figure... Anyway, before Phil took the stage,
one girl turned to me and said innocently,
"Now how long was Phil the bass player for
Phish?" I just grinned, and politely corrected
the oversight. However, after she heard that
Dark Star and the Scarlet Fire, she and her pal
were as moved as if they'ld toured with the
scene for years. It just felt right.
Another story: At OKC I met a woman from
Japan named Miwa who'd traveled alone with
broken English and no vehicle or friends
except who she met at the shows. Even
though she barely spoke the language, she
knew every song and danced to the universal
language of music . I saw her again at
Sandstone after the show, wandering the lot,
spun out and happy. She recognized me from
the previous show, hugged me and, in her
broken English, repeatedly said, "Best show!
Best show!" That, my friends, is the heart of
the matter. The music never stops, it just
Secondly, the scene was great overall. Few
scuffles in the large crowd, and a great feel
throughout. Full scale Shakedown St. in the lot
was permitted by the venue operators, and
best of all, they let folks sober up for a few
hours on the grassy lawn before ASKING
everybody to kindly split, which we did. Haven't
seen that sort of permissive attitude since
1989 or so, and we should both savor the
freedom and do whatever we can to avoid
fucking it up for the future, like before.
We can make the choice to have a great
scene or to go back to the pissing in the
bathroom sinks days, which I don't think most
of us want to see again.
Also, no cops in the lot after a while, and no
Thirdly, Phil and Friends name has to go.
I suggest "The Phil Lesh Orchestra," or "The
Phil Lesh Experience." Keep the notion that
Phil is the lead cat, but that it's far more than
him alone that makes the music happen.
Fourthly, the music lives.
I'm still a Friend of the Devil, and loved hearing
songs that unite us and remind us of what
attracted us to begin with. Whether it's Jerry or
Warren, or Jimmy, it doesn't matter. The
Sounds come from the Gestalt, not the
individual. The whole is greater than the sum
of it's parts. Dark Star, The Eleven. Nuff said.
Great to have a three show midwest run from
OKC to St. Louis and Kansas, too.
Two things about Jason's review
First bravo for the way you helped bring two younger heads into the scene...many many people would *never* have been so kind.
>Anyway, before Phil took the stage,

>Phil and Friends name has to go.

I think I like the Phil Lesh Quintet the best so far. Sometimes I think GD, but sometimes I can't stomach it. PLQ's definately got the spirit. Sometimes I have visions of the GD being a constantly changing, never dying source of light in our world with younger folk constantly replacing the band's posts and keeping the wheel turning.
BOTB, your words (people just wanting to mellow our after a show and not rush to a computer...) were right on and got me thinking. i have been completely wrong. instead of blasting the midwest folks i should be praising them for not being anal retentive computer geeks. they are exactly right to chill out after a show and come in on their own good time. lord knows after my last shows (sunrise, beacon) i was burned out for days. although for eastcoast shows there's no need to rush in because reviews, let alone lists, are already posted before the show's even over. so i hope you all can forgive me. i've taken what you've said to heart and i'm sorry. botb you are exactly right. thanks for straightening me out.
Dig Jason's story about the chick from Japan...nice. And I'm glad those girls who thought Phil was in phish ran into him instead of anyone I know....good guy.
Jinpa, have a good day and enjoy the shows!
Why the heck doesn't anyone post a real review of the show? I've browsed the whole page- and nothing as to what songs were hot or any detailed info about the show- what's up with that!??!
hey folkeses!! haven't seen Ph & F since the ashbury park convention center show, that show foretold, for me, a glorious new age rising like a paisly pheonix from the dim ashes of the now extinct but never forgotton grateful dead.
It was my fourth Ph & F show, having checked out several other incarnations, that were fun, but didnt wobble the earths axis the way this line up has been doing consistantly, since the spring.
Hey hound broke down, as for the question of Willy on the bill, there is a long standing connection between the GD world and Willie Nelson. I remember seeing Willie Nelson and family perform, on the bill with the dead in 1978, at Giant's Stadium. Donna and Jerry came out during Willies set to help sing Amazing Grace, and I think, will the circle be unbroken. I was there, and to prove it, I cant remember much!! But it was a sweet afternoon, and Willie is STILL THE MAN!!! read the transcript of the USA today Phil net chat, Phil is stoked to be playing with this living legend, and has sent willie a tape with several Jerry songs in the hopes that Willy will lend his heartbreakingly sweet voice to a jerry nugget, and bring it back to life for a night !!
Every body enjoy the shows, be nice to each other !! I'll see all my friends at Camden, and jones beach!!!! ((((((((all on site)))))))
PS, whats the buzz on Galactica?? (excuse spelling)
Galactic is supposed to be FANTASTIC...I've never seen them but lots of my friends have and absolutely LOVE them.
