Night 3 poster!!
All 3 posters together.. Pretty sweet stuff!
I like the individual posters a lot, but I'm not sure the three panel works well. Not a lot of difference between the three.
Not a lot of difference???? Look a the thing. The hatching rose, the roses on the skull
I'm looking at it. I see three identical posters with minor changes. Not enough differences to justify a three panel display IMO. I might buy the night #3 poster though. Individually it is a good design. Are they selling all posters all nights? I didn't stop by a merch booth last night.
coupla pics fer ya:
Dusk has fallen - can barely wait!
Sunday fun day is finally here. The long work week is over, and it's time for this Grateful Dad to get out of the house and shake his bones on The Rocks.
Come on Phil & Bobby let's get up and dance....it won't ruin you.

thank you so much bennett
thanks for the hookup bennett schwartz!
cool earlier start?
Nice for the rocks, further and Mr. Bennett to help out this old burned out head tonight.
God bless live music.
It sounds like he's right down in the pit; fat and tasty.
Bird Song...but the stream has gotten bumpy.
nice call - this is much better than what I was doing before the phone rang! Thanks!
Lovelight...it's better than what I was doing before your phone rang too...
Only heard the Birdsong and Lovelight - but that sounded quite sweet to me! Nice photo's too - Thanks TaperRob!
Looks like some who gets it has unleashed a stream for all the rest of us who aren't that special that we get a secret password - thanks Bennett!!
listen to set 1 here> http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/17652031
There! I said it. Take that you elitist stream hogs.
>>elitist stream hogs<<
I remember having to call a 1-900-Dead number to get the setlists after a show, while waiting for 3rd and 4th generation cassettes to come around - and I think these people who update and post recordings (at any time) are hero's who should be lauded and commended! God Bless the Tapers.
THANK YOU TAPER ROB
May i have the link and password to tonite's stream, please!!!!!
Taperrob, can you please share the password to your live ustream so we can all partake of the music live, rather than after the fact? Thanks!
Many kind thanks coloartist, for allowing us peons to hear the show live without having a super sekrit password! So much appreciation for you, thanks!
It is very cool indeed. God Bless the Tapers - and the Streamers.
Whats the call for the opener?
The show's already at intermission...started just after 5pm today.
h > s > f ?
Holy shite coloartist, your sound quality is amazing. Stellar!
Thanks for the live stream! Wish I was there but being able to hear the set list is always better than just reading the set list!!
Thank you kind streamer...The sound is beautiful!
now that is a harsh transition...
...the stream has hit a rocky section...
new potato caboose
...nice flow into it too...
You didn't like the step from truckin > smokestack? I thought it sounded just like one of those old GD Swiss watch transitions...
Born cross eyed
Phil's got his bombast on. This sounds so effin good...can't wait for Thursday...
The transition was prob'ly great - all I got was static though...
The word from the family at the show? "OMG!!!!!"
The Rocks will do that to you. No rain this run though, right?
that was sweet.
Nah, they are saving the rain for Monterey.
Unbroken Chain Phil all Day!!!!
Set 2 so far:
Smokestack Lightning >
New Potatoe Caboose >

AdamDean thanks for the inspiration
Annnnd, ALWAYS, thanks to TR for all that you do in the name of PHIL !
Monterey... yeah I want to be there too!
nice...that's we like!
Know it's rocking when jams make you get up and move while at home tuning in on a computer.
is it just me or was that sort of an odd jump out of the Unbroken?
just gotta poke around...
Standing on the Moon
Standing on Bobby's vocals..........
nevermind, the way they just stepped into this Standing made up for it...
Thanks but no thanks Mr. Wier
> Bobby's vocals
I find it easier to think of the phenomena that you refer to as "the vocal stylings of".
Help on the way
Shut the fuck up Bobby bashers. You west coasties are way uptight. Don't be an anus. This is jerrys brother you are talkin about.
"vocal stylings of"
I like it.
You had the H>S>F call right apparently - just had the placement wrong.
Umm - the guy bashing Bobby is from Florida - just thought it worth pointing out.

In the apparent interest of fairness, but in reality, ridiculousness, I'll mention that Florida has two coasts.
And I'll call NFA for the encore.
whichever coast your pleasure tends
and magical it is! Even over the internet!
That gave me chills
Thank you Bennett for the live stream. It was awesome!
The donor rap sort of freaked me out tonight. That was the part that gave me chills. Anybody else feel that?
Coloartist you have made an awful lot of people VERY HAPPY sharing your stream. I thank you on behalf of many of them... Peace my friend...and thank you once again...
listen to set 2 here> http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/17653933
thanks for sharing the stream Bennett!!
You never know when this trip may end. We pray that it is not soon, but you never know. It could just be the good bye to the long runs with back to back shows. Or the hike is taking it's toll on them. Or a million other reasons for the "under-talk" to be there...
A big thanks to Coloartist for sharing the stream! It was amazing!
Heartfelt thanks go out to Coloartist for that awesome quality sound. Had my headphones on and felt like I was in the front what perfect sound.
Once upon a time there was nothing quite as sweet as hearing a fresh tape of the show after the show. Now we get a crispy stream from Bennett and then TaperRobs tasty copy from the couch. Sweeter!
Thank you both!
Many many thanks Coloartist. You are a true bodhisattva. I forgot about the early start tonight and only joined the stream at Wharf Rat, but man o man were they on tonight!
Turn on your livelight...
... and leave it on!
Yes thank you Bennett for freeing up the music that others seem to greedily keep to themselves.
thank you T Rob and Color for making my night! could be the lasttime..at the Rocks and you two came through big time!
Good show. I have seen Furthur 10x since their inception and this was my favorite show. (Did not see the first two nights of this run but listened a bit thanks to TR!) While there are a lot of reasons for that opinion the game changer tonight was Bobby, especially his guitar tone. Last year he played Pinkie most of the shows and he tended to sound shrill and tinny to my ears. Tonight he played what looked to me like some sun-stroked hollow bodied gibson (obviously I don't know shit about guitars) most of the night--VERY notable exception was Shakedown Street which I think Bob nailed with a Strat of some kind--and Bob sounded and played great throughout the night! I don't know if he's been listening to his Europe '72 heyday on his time off thanks to Rhino's gargantuan release but that is what his playing tonight reminded me of, especially AFTER the Truckin jam in the second set. Bobby led a lot of the instrumental interludes and he did so with panache.
And now back to the start of the show: a well played and well paced first set. Samson & Delilah got things off to a stomping good start. Then I was surprised by Ruben & Cerise. The intro almost fooled me into thinking it was Terrapin. JK took the vocals and unfortunately he was not up to the minstrel's art behind this tune. (Ironic, I know.) They cut R&C short I believe and then jumped into I Need A Miracle. Bobby had played a bit of slide during S&D and he continued to do so very tastefully on and off throughout the set with Miracle a stand out. Then came the love songs. When I was 20s and single I would have tuned them out. Now that I'm 30s with a family I listen in: Something seemed cut short but JK gave it a good shot and then LLR bent my ear. Phil's thundering and Bobby's strumming went together well on LLR. The energy in the amph then picked up a bit with Tennessee Jed. It's hard not to enjoy jiggin to it. Birdsong was the highlight of the first set to me. Phil was in great voice and Chimenti added a lot to the tune as he slid back and forth between his genuine baby grand and the Hammond B3. The set closing Lovelight was fun for the feets, but not necessarily memorable. Set break and the sun goes down behind The Great Divide.....
FAMOUSE you lucky critters who were there thanks everyone for the streams et pics et al!!!!
Shakedown was superb!
A great 3 night run
<<< contrition >>>
<<< abject humility >>>
<<< supplication >>>
to the community.
with love, adam
Just back East from Red Rocks. On the bus in í82, 8th Furthur show since March, etcÖ, BUT, first Red Rocks, so I was/am pretty amped about the whole weekend! Iím just reviewing Sunday night (wasnít there Friday).
Entire show was solid. Excellent execution plus lots of emotion from the band made for an superb show. They came out with a lot more energy than Sat night. Sampson and Delilah had the whole place rockin immediately, and Reuben and Cherise was enthusiastically welcomed by the crowd. Johnís vocals were stellar, I was in the 7th row, Philís side, and from there I could see the sheer effort he was putting in, face red, veins poppin! Over the years Iíve become kinda luke-warm to Miracle, but hotdamn, the jam was forceful. Something was beautiful, and again John gave the vocals their due. Rest of first was great, especially Tennessee Jed. Birdsong is down with a slower tempo than they used to do it, but good. Love Light had the place crazy with dancing fools all over the Rocks!
Not too long of a break (night before was over an hour, Phil had some sorta problem that never got resolved, heard the buzz in the lulls of entire 2nd set) and they started with a nice jam, but sorta mellow and I thought, ďOh please, donít change the energy.Ē Then bam, truckin came out and it built pretty micley into a good, raw smokestack, still kinda mellower than 1st, but you could tell they were just getting started. John again nailed the vocals on Wharfrat, then came my highlight. Unbroken was off the hinges HOT!!! It was just excellent fun fast crazy. Shakedown was very good, then Bobby took it down a notch with a wonderful Standing on the Moon. You could tell he wasnít gonna let John get away with akll that emotion alone! Helpslipfrank was really good, too. And of course we all expected Brokedown.
Suggestion: I never purchased a cd from the concert, but at song three my buddy decided to do it, just knew it would be a great momento. The sound quality is phenomenal!!! I will do this at other worthy shows, totally worth the 25 bucks. BIG SHOUT OUT to TaperRob, thanks for all your work/commitment/LOVE.
Anyone else see that lightning off in the distance during smokestack lightning? i think jerry was trying to communicate with us
>>>>Anyone else see that lightning off in the distance during smokestack lightning? i think jerry was trying to communicate with us
Please Elaborate, I wasn't there, but love the Jerry stuff.
Just got back to work on the east coast after 3 unbelievable days at the rocks. Can't seem to get my mind on work. Red Rocks never disappoints.
It was great out there on Sunday for the first set in the beautiful warm October sun. Anybody notice the two cute girls dancing in back of Phil the first set. Gotta love it.
Thanks Furthur, see ha next month.
Sunday was the real deal for sure! There was quite a bit of lighting out NE of Denver so folks above the lower GA section could probably see it; know Carol and I could.
After the debacle of the night before and really both previous shows, this one was like night and day.
Parking was not a hassle; got our usual spot and didn't have to leave at noon to get it either! Really what ruined the 1st set on Friday was the parking mess and nothing to do with the band or the setlist. Saturday was both!
Regardless all was well the world on Sunday.
Not the best UBC I've seen, seemed like they rushed though portions of the instrumental section! Phil actually sounded great all three nights vocally. Believe this may have been the 1st SOTM at the Rocks post Jerry, at least I don't recall another so that was sweet and I thought Bobby's rendition was mighty fine.
I had hoped for the H/S/F opener, but when it came round it was well-received! ;-) Shakedown was just awesome to close.
Brokedown made me think of Fitz and although I was hoping for Passenger or something more up tempo no doubt a sweet version.
Best night of the three IMNSFHO on so many levels!
Magic in the air.the lightning during smokestack was sick. Unbroken was huge, franklins gave me chills.
For the meteorological record on the PZ the lightning was SE of Denver.
I had posted after the Saturday 10/1 show that I wasn't blown away by it. I thought set one was lame (though the sound for me was being washed away by the wind) and set two, while a huge improvement in sound, took an awful lot of concentration to keep up with. It was very jammy and intense, and I'll probably like it more on reflection when I've had time to listen to it more closely. But from the stands it was tough to connect with, let alone dance to.
Sunday 10/2, on the other had, more than made up for it. This show was outstanding from the first note to the last. I thought the last 4 songs of set one in particular built some terrific momentum. Set two was killer.
Of course it's not always easy to map the sound, energy, and vibe of being there to a recording, so I don't know if it will come across. But the crowd was loving it, the weather was stunning, and the band was bringin' the heat.
As I told my wife after the first set, there's nothing like that moment when Phil does that... something magical ... in between the notes that propels your ass, hips, and feet in whatever direction he decides and you have zero say in it. That Lovelight was one of those for the crowd.
As for the rest of the show. Just a barn burner all the way through. Can't wait to hear the SBD.
the meat of set 2 here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1D0SChT_NU
Probably can't add much that hasn't already been said, but to add it was a pretty solid show all-around. I think the 2nd set Saturday night was clearly the best meat of the weekend (certainly on paper), but tonight's 1st set was probably the best of the 3 nights (none were outstanding in my book), and the 2nd set was very good/excellent. I must say, though, that "Something" could easily be dropped altogether from the repertoire. I realize it's on Abbey Road, but this is a tune that's best left untouched. It's a great song for Harrison and the Beatles, but it doesn't translate to Furthur (OK, it's boring) -- other than that, no complaints.
Oh, and the weather kicked ass, especially Sunday and Friday. Can't believe I was dancing in just my t-shirt most of the weekend. Thank you Colorado for the killer weather and beautiful scenery.
>> I must say, though, that "Something" could easily be dropped altogether from the repertoire
I agree it was the slowest of the set one tunes on Sunday, but it somehow worked in that setting. Red Rocks was beautiful, the sun was just starting to set, a slight breeze. For me it was well placed and appropriate. YMMV.
I enjoyed it as well for all the reasons listed. It would have taken more than Something to kill that set and vibe
