ah yes you are right it is a Tele and I did hear about it being his birth father's... I thought the tone Bob had going with it 4/16/04 [only time I've seen him play it] was possible the *best* sounding Bob in a really long time. it just has that something special to it, fit in really well with Warren's tone... thx for the correction.

Cortez the muther fucking killer, unfricken believable, sooooo sweet and the death dont have no mercy was the highlight of the show in my mind. To me the first set was a little shakey, but the second set just scorched. Warren is the man, no questions about it. the weather stayed nice, a bit on the cool crisp side, but allright nonetheless, good for getting your groove on. Good stuff all around, if you weren't there, ya missed out. About the Red rox posters, yes they have some plus they're doing a food drive and a contribution of 10 cans gets a Kelley mouse poster for free so hows about that for giving back some love. Adios.

So here we are at the Denver Marriott West in the buisness Center where they have a free to use computer with internet access

We arrived in time to see a few folks come in from the show, all wide-eyed and smilling hard. TRob had all his gear on him, like a true warrior. For all that he does, live updates, pictures, taping, streaming, it's amazing that he can carry all that he needs in relatively small and portable cases.

The word for the evening was 180 show from the night before, I believe that we are all in for a real treat this year.

LK you'll get the pictures you want maybe Friday night, perhaps I can grab Rob's camera and take a few up close and not-so-up-close pics for him while he prepares the music for streaming. You'll have to wait till next week to see the photo thread pics that PhilZone has to offer.

Looking forward to Friday night's show, and Saturday's festivities

While I can't speak for Wed nite, on Tuesday nite Bobby played extremely well. I've been known to B-bash, and I have to say I was very impressed and taken with his playing. Taken as a whole, the guitar trio delivers a very nice, very alluring hit on all levels.

They should try some blues numbers since they have Warren on deck that would be sweet. Maybe hootchie cootchie or an electric soulshine or any thing Allman flavored for that matter. Go out on a limb boys broaden your horizons.

regarding Bob: I put a post up on the show reviews of 4/16/04 that any of you can go over and read. in it I commented how Bob was the surprise element of the evening...something HAS happened to Bob over the last year and it's really really good for the music and the vibe of the band...Bob's just downright serious about his playing these days. and it's not just rhythm playing either. see comments above in thread about the blonde Telecaster that belonged to his birth father, who he searched for and found in the last 2 years or so. he finds his birth father and the man is a guitar player and gives his son a special guitar... go where you want with any of this but I'm one person who was very disappointed in how Bob played and conducted himself with The Dead last summer and it just isn't the same Bob on stage this summer.

get over the bashing and the who should play what stuff and open yourself to what is evolving right now... the music plays the band!

thx for the bandwidth, Ken K

the blonde tele actually belonged to Bob's deceased half-brother. they left it for Bob in the room when he would visit, until he finally asked. he had it fixed up and I thought he really sounded good w/ it. sounded more like mid-70s Bob than the Casio years. ((shudder))

Oh yeah, just like I've heard it at two-thirds of the Q shows I've attended. I love the way Warren, Jimmy and Phil work it. I must admit, when After Midnight started, the thought of After Midnight->Eleanor Rigby->After Midnight did cross my mind.

don't have time for full review yet, but here are my notes right after the show...

1
stranger...solid opener, awesome, spacey, w/jeff adding some dark, ethereal effects
1/2 step..bobby sang (phil sang last year).. nice improvement>
no more do i... weak, jam just sort of drifted off into nothing... confused at end
Alligator, solid old school, Warren sang (not phil)
Lazy river road... beautiful..warren sounded really good.. band traded lyrics..touching, emotional, did justice to song
After midnight.. powerful, refreshing, but also short
Watchtower awesome, combination of GD style and hendrix via warren
Little light.. solid, not my favorite song, but very well executed

overall, first set, botched transitions, but expected for first run through..got much better by Lazy river road... group dynamics very nice, not cluttered w/ 3 guitars... One guitarist will lead w/ bobby, while other "lead" fills in the spaces and adds nice effects, giving a MUCH more "full," solid overall sound, denser and stronger, but NOT cluttered... bands seems to be pushing itself much more creatively.. new time signatures... timid at first, but settled in later

2
Cortez the killer, nice
1000 stars (blah)
Scarlett...pretty huge... VERY strong, very swirly, spacey>
FOTM... different key, abrupt transition.. mickey didn't rap! still sang it differently, and not very good, but music overall was up tempo, refreshing, energetic
Drums--awesome! rainforest>beam
Space *** epic! highlight of my evening... spaces are much more interesting than GD versions, generally speaking... they are now much more THEMED.. still free improv, but have much more direction and style.. very colorful, and very trippy
Other one.. no phil bomb...started off quiet... great, swirly jam after 1st verse, but after 2nd verse, abruptly ended w/cryptical theme..short but sweet
Death don't have no mercy... very nice (warren).. very old school style (2 from the vault)
Golden Road..great party song after the heavy blues, death theme..old school sound
Spacey jam>
Lucy in sky... awesome!! tight, trippy
Midnight hour... standard, nice ending

Phil donor rap/head count
GDTRFB.... old school, very nice>
Bid you g'night... beautiful! very moving..mickey looking up to heaven, hands clasped, for jerry :-)

overall, band's potential very strong, still need to grow into shoes, but really pushing themselves creatively.. warren, playing VERY rootsy..high energy, great family vibe.. band did a group hug before the show :-).. phil mentioned his "brothers" on stage... saw bobby after show, had daughter on his shoulders

like what's being said about weir. one of my only gripes last summer was that it was difficult to hear Bobby's guitar in the mix. For some reason, the new line-up seems to feature Weir's rhythm playing more, and I love his artful choices.

Can't believe nobody commented on the huge disaster that was Watchtower. One thing to flub a line, but bobby flubbed ALL of the verses and it was a total mess.

Does anyone think Mickey has actually listened to himself sing? He is so awful, I now dread FOTM during Scarlet! He had it right for 30 years, IMO he should zip it!

>Golden Road- Bob

Listening now on 365 and I'm pretty sure that's not Weir. Sounds more like Micky.

Standing in the 22nd row of Red Rocks last night, I can tell you for sure that it was Bob singing Golden Road.

Sheesh.

I JUST FINISHED LISTENING TO THE ENTIRE SHOW AND MAN IT IS PUTTING ME TO SLEEP. CORTEZ, ONE OF MY FAVORITE NEIL/MULE SONGS IS COMPLETELY LAME. JUST A LITTLE LIGHT, WHICH WAS A Q HIGHLIGHT WAS A SLEEPY 7 MINUTES LONG. ALLIGATOR WAS OK--NOTHING SPECIAL.
LAZY RIVER WASNT BAD.
AND WEIR SOUNDS HORRIBLE. HE SOUNDS LIKE HES TRYING TO IMITATE DYLAN. HES JUST TALKING HIS WAY THROUGH THE SONGS. HES NOT EVEN SINGING.
THE SHOW JUST SOUNDS REALLY BORING. WOULD NEVER LISTEN TWICE TO THIS STUFF.
BWAHAHAHAH NOW COME TO PAPA. 9~

OK

I respect everyone's right to an opinion. I have spent many nights listening to shows streamed through Live365 (Thanks again TaperRob) on my laptop speakers. I have not yet heard the streams of the past two shows, but fortunately I had the pleasure of hearing them from about 50 feet in front of the stage.

That said, last night's show was insane. No other way to put it. Yes, they may have missed a few of the big build-up transitions, but do we love this band because of how well they are structured? Hell no. They jam, and jam last night they did. I loved Joan, and was disappointed to see her replaced with Warren, but this is definitely THE lineup. There were many parts of last night - especially post Drums - that had the feel of a late 80's-early 90's show. Scarlet ripped, even if the jam got away from them a couple of times. (They were playing so hard and so fast that I'm not sure that ANY group of musicians would have been able to keep it together) Jimmy blew the place away with his Fire solos.

They came out of space with an Other One jam that just materialized, no Phil roll-in. Bobby nailed it, and his rythmn chops were straight out of the mid-70's. They jammed a bit and then Warren just exploded into a chilling Death Don't. Warren's got that deep strong rockstar voice that the Dead have been without since Pigpen died, and you felt it last night.

Then Golden Road - great Phil intro. This was as much fun as the best Sugar Mag I've ever heard. Bobby sang it incredibly. Didn't miss any of the high notes, totally bueno. I'd so much rather hear him sing this song than Warren - knowing that they wrote it when he was, what, 20?

Just when we expected the show to end, Lucy in the Sky!!! They were technically perfect, and each chorus just completely filled Red Rocks with sound. Towards the end, Billy just kinda stopped playing and threw his hands up while looking towards the sky, with this expression like "Holy shit - we can still do this!" Midnight Hour was fun, nice to see Warren adding back-ups during the Bobby rap.

The GDTRFB encore was groovin, they brought it down to just the vocals at the end, and then just fell right into a Bid You Goodnight. Probably the single most special moment I've ever experienced with the boys, ever. They had Red Rocks dead silent. I mean you could hear a pin drop. I'm not religious, but they transformed Red Rocks into a church for those few minutes.

See this band. Or don't, and give me your tickets.

They got cortez up on the Dead's all access page. They're putting up a song each night they perform!

I am psyched to see them this summer! I agree with some of the posts above, I hope bobby starts singing rather than talking the verses, but who am I to talk!! I just like 'havin a good time'...

Can't wait for more gems to pop out this tour!!
I hope I get that Hey Pockey Way at my show!!

More Beatles please!!!

All i know is that i saw the dead last year and was very disappointed, actually saw dark star orchestra a little afterward and felt that they blew the dead off of the stage and thats rather pathetic, when the cover band beats down the originals. That said, this is a beast of an entirely different number and warren makes all the difference in the world, they really really needed that one guy just to stand up and take the lead in uncertain situations and he's got the balls, the lineage and the chops to do it and everyone knows it. Bobs chilled out it seems and phil, he didn't drop one bomb(sad but true). My only beef is that they need to let warren take over the vocals on all the old garcia numbers and retire phil and mickey from singing. I went to the rocks as a spur of the moment thing with a lot of trepidition and after seeing the snows there, come tomorrow I'm whipping out the old credit card and buying tix for most of the east coast tour; putting my money where my mouth is. the boys are back and kicking ass!!!!

regarding the Watchtower comment... I can't recall if bob flubbed the lyrics, but i have noticed that the versions from last year (at least 8/10/03) and last night had bobby pausing between each line, rather than singing each verse straight through...at first it sounds like he's forgetting the lyrics, but he's really just stepping back and taking his sweet time. Kind of weird, but he also did that with el paso last year.

Do they have the lyrics in front of them? I looks like they have some kind a music stand infront of them.

On a comment above, I want to add that I go see these guys to watch something new evolve. I don't believe they want to sound too much and sing like the old dead, y' know like singing or playing the same licks. That is what DSO is for, nostalgia. It's not fair to compare the two because it's two different arena's of playing.

I have a few buddies who went last year thinking the Dead would sound like the Grateful Dead, and they're not going this year. Oh how they will miss some very good jams!!

It's what Bob calls "rocking back and forth"
finding the groove

I've been in the front row for all the shows thus far, and yes, they all have a teleprompter which includes song lyrics and notes.

The space following drumz on Wed was much better than the Tues space. Bobby & Warren seem to be getting along splendidly and really enjoying themselves up there. You can also see the total joy on Phil's face having this line up together. I think Jeff is also doing a great job. All those years of P&F I really thought Rob was the man, and of course he has excellent vocals, but Jeff's keys are definitely on!

I agree with the posts that this is not GD nor is it supposed to be. Just read what Phil's been saying over the years regarding the evolution of the music. Bobby is saying the same thing also, which of course is entirely evident in the music! This band is absolutely incredible! SF meets the best from Atlanta. Truly amazing.

Just going to the shows to listen to the cover of the evening is worth it. 8 miles high Tues and After Midnight Wed were both incredible...

Enjoy the weekend! Should be something special as always!

yep

>>My only beef is that they need to let warren take over the vocals on all the old garcia numbers and retire phil and mickey from singing


The 60's was the flashpoint that created the wave that we are continuing to ride on in 2004. While I don't think anyone can really disagree that Warren has the best voice in the band, I'd rather hear Bob and PHIL on certain poignant tunes. I went through this whole thing during my Beacon reviews about Warren singing Jerry songs and coming to accept and embrace his singing Jerry's songs rather than lament over the fact that I "fuckinmisshim". Warren has a beautiful voice and a good soul...anyone who penned the words to "Patchwork" cleary understands why we loved Jerry so.

I guess my whole point is that as much as I dig Warren..it's Phil and Bobby who were THERE for the creation of it all. I am most fascinated with the late 60's because of that "we don't know where this is going but it's IS going indeed"...the fresh exploring when The Other One was simply that "other riff"..

To me it's not about hearing the best possible rendition of what they used to be...this is why I could give a flying rats ass about Dark Star Orchestra..

it's about the dynamics of the day..Wave That Flag/Racehorse Summer Tour 2004...our hero's who have come so far and who we've grown to love over the years as they plastered smile after smile on our faces and made us all strive to shine from the inside out..

yeah..Phil may well not have the best voice to those who do not wish to be bothered with looking a little ~beyond~

He does have the best voice when it comes to speaking from the heart


there

he

whole

OK, quick comments - I'll try to only fill in what others didn't touch on - overall I liked Tues better than Wed - Tues was more experimental and jammy, although sloppier. Wed more of a rock & roll show - highlights to me were No MOre Do I (strong version I thought), After Midnight (totally new and original groove - doesn't sound like anyone else's version, including JGB's), NICE spacey jam into Watchtower (didn't notice any Bob lyric flubs), and, THE highlight was DEATH DON'T. The rest of the 2nd set was adequate but felt like build-up/come down from the AWESOME Death Don't. Cortez was nice, love the tune & lyrics, ESPECIALLY after visiting Mesa Verda (cliff dwelling ruins in SW CO), but having these guys do it vs. Warren solo or Mule adds nothing to it. Lowlights: Alligator - I LOVE this tune but this version was THE PITS - way sloppy, and, contrary to the setlist, there was ZERO jam after it - Bob strapped his acoustic on IMMEDIATELY - at least they didn't go into a Mickey song as at last year's. The Other One - way short, very "soft", like an '86-'88 version, WEAK, but that's OK 'cause they were getting prepped for the DEATH DON'T. Yes, they are using some kind of computer notepads as teleprompters. Bob was noticeably reading off it during Golden Road and flubbed a line. Everyone pointed and laughed at him. Goin' Down into Bid U Goodnight they tried a new transition, blowing off the usual ending and goign right from the verses - they didn't really pull it off - was nice seeing all band members acapella singing Bid U but not the best version. I was 4th row off to the side. Met up w/people I knew (was expecting to be alone for this one) and got to hang there. Hard to judge the sound from that locale but seemed OK. Could watch the band much better - the chemistry seems much better than last year, when it was all Joan and Phil mocking Bobby every time he flubbed or had technical problems. This year Bob is singing and playing much more seriously and with few problems. The communication and chemistry seems very good, even when things aren't gooing well (ie, Alligator). As for the crowd, as a buddy said "when it's an easy ticket all the dirtbags get in" - NO FREAKIN DOUBT - I talked to these annoying jerks next to us - tried to get them to understand - he wanted to know why we were so snobbish - I told th em only because they were being so FREAKIN ANNOYING - talking, spilling beer, chain smoking - told them we'd be much more tolerant/accepting if they'd only try to act somewhat respectful of others - he sorta got it but not really - they were all former '80's punkers who got into GD/Jamband stuff only in the last few y ears - they were impressed by my Subline discology geek knowledge, adn knew the band Butt Trumpet!!! (best punk band EVER!!!) I'm, at a temporary public library in Granby CO - keyboard is on a milk crate - the rrreason for the typo's - apparently some local nut built himself a tank out of a bulldozer and went on a rampage thru town 2 weeks ago destroying businesses and houses belonging to those folks in town who somehow crossed him - I'll try to take some pictures and post them when I figure out how - the "real" library is DEMOLISHED - you can see where the "tank-dozer" went right thru! Let's hear it for those right wing whacko's!!! I stayed last night @ youth hostel in Grand Lake (near Rocky Mtn park) VERY nice !!! Weather sucked, though. And a tip for you Denver homies: Go eat breakfast @ the Walnut Cafe @ Logan & Colfax - the waitresses there are SMOKIN' HOT!!!! They all have that symbiosis of hugging each other and whispering in each other's ears, patting each other's asses, as they work - very much a soap opera/act put on for all the downtown dirty ole men (like yers truly) - they are all my fantasy type - athletic, skinny, small breasted, artsy, borderline tough, 20-something, long hair, no makeup, tatty's - I went there 2 days in a row - 2nd day was after 10 so there were only 2 of them - earlier there's a half dozen, each m ore fetching than the other - of course I guess my tastes are weird - after being turned on listening to the Howard Stern show w/the Scores girls, actual;ly seeing them on TV was a total turnoff - those way huge fake boobs and overdone made up fake strippers are a total turnoff to me - I'll take mine real & natural anyday! OF course I didn't see them on ciggy break, which woulda totally ruined my fantasy. Oh, well, still have a lifetime of pud-pulling just from 1 breakfast! The only downside - who knows if the Chicano short order chefs (also obviously gettin' off on the "entertainment") are pulling their pud all day into yer food!?!!?

Just finished putting this show onto disc. I do not want to sound like a sap but the Lazy River Road is fucking amazing. Very emotional in its presentation, it is after all a song they had better not screw up on. Nine days and counting until the circus gets to SLC and we become the people our parents warned us about. Boy am I glad I never warned my kids about those people. lol

At least Bobby turned toward Warren a few times Wed. He had his back to him all of Tues and you could see warren trying to see what he was doing. It was like Bobby was hiding from Warren.-

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>however he was prtey poor on tuesday night ,. sory but i watched Phil Yelling at him after the "shakedown" trainwreck!!


Don't be sorry. it WAS a train wreck!!!
Everyone around me Tues was yelling at BOB!!
