Hey, Chuck -- is there a list somewhere of the tunelist for this lineup?
Just curious where you're getting your info. Very cool to speculate on what they might play -- thanks!
No, I used all the songs last years lineup did, which should be pretty close. Got the list from otherones.net
Remove all the songs from the last 5 gigs, and the last time they were at the venue, and theres the list.
Dunno how accurate I'll be.
Sugar Magnolia>WRS>Let It Grow,Loser>Jam>Mexicali,
Stagger Lee,One(U2),Bertha>Sunshine Daydream
Dancin'>Jam>Roses,Far From Me>Brother Esau,He's Gone>D>S>St. Stephen>GDTRFB>Black Peter>Around & Around
Rider's setlist is bogus. Check out the live chat for updates.
very different setlist is posted over at tooboard.net
The setlist info I got was posted on the Ratdog.org message board. It may be incorrect!
from tooboard.net (for what its worth): Set 1: Jam> Crazy Fingers> Big Boss Man> unknown song possibly Tough Mama> Brown Eyed Women> Good Mornin Lil Schoolgirl> Real Thing> Althea> Passenger
this is the offical stage setlist, as called into me... don't have all the transitions, or the jams, just the listings of the songs played:
Big Boss Man
You Remind Me
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
The Real Thing
Doin' That Rag
Madman Across The Water
Like A Rolling Stone>
enc: Iko Iko
thanks to GT/LT for the list
Thanks Taperrob. Still no 11
unfortunately i dont have the Warren setlist at this time.....................
Nice set 2...lookin forward to show here in San Diego tomarrow night..
Warren's set included:
It Hurts Me too
Into The Mystic
Not necessarily in this order, and this list is incomplete.
Awesome show. Did anyone else hear a brief Crazy Fingers reprise somewhere in the second set?
No donor rap?
hello - is the arizona show playin' broadcast somewhere? appreciate it
Keith, you ARE counting the 11 from Roo, yah?
And, just to note...I find it AMAZING that nothing from the Roo second set was repeated @ the Rocks, not repeated until LAST NIGHT - WOW
theres my real thing!!!---knew it was only time for them to bust it out....some reviews???
Not familiar with You Remind Me, unless it's a song I know but don't know the title of. Help me out?
Wake up AZ!!!! Reviews, someone, anyone, hello ...
What was the attendance like? Just wondering because of the offer for buy a ticket get a lawn seat free.
ticket sales were weak for this show but it filled up quickly and ended up being a pretty full house. fun night. mickey has some weird energy sometimes, though.
WOW... No reviews from the desert?
Any Zoners in Zona?
Help us out with some thoughts on last night's show!
Musta been some serious party out there.
I was really drunk as a substitute for more appropriate and fun and enlightening but too hard to procure things, so i have a slightly choppy memory....
Though I'm all for what these guys are doing and striving for these days, the hole Jerry left gets bigger with each post GD show I see (which is not too many). Herring was loud and had good tone, and Warren the same, but it seems they just can't hit that emotional peak, that just-right note. Passenger was about as close as it came to the 'woohoo' factor. Crazy Fingers was a cool opener, BEW and Like a Rolling Stone were happening and - jumping waaay ahead - Iko Iko was great but, whoa, I recall mickey singing this. Why? Why? He's Gone was nice, band and audience sharing the same experience during this one. The jams were good but I saw mickey stop playing once and kind of wait one out, which I thought was lame as shit.
Not much of a review, sorry. I'm still piecing things back together. One thing for sure: it was a lot of fun and a lot of good music was played and it was a great crowd. That's about as detailed as I can offer right now.
Hey that's all we're ever looking for is an honest assessment! Whatever your eyes saw and your ears heard... Does feel like it must've been quite the party though!!!
Take good care and thanks again for some highlights!
why can't Mickey sit a jam out? I'd say he knows what he's doing.
it was the way he did it, like he wanted to go in another direction and they kept jamming and didn't follow his lead so he just stopped.
I have a sober review of the whole show Crazy Fingers played will miffed lyrics on the last verse. Big Boss man Bobby can't sing the blues as good as Warren. Warren song next very nice change of pace from Bob's Blues review. BEW was nicely played with no miffed lyrics. Unfortunately he tries blues again with Schoolgirl have mercy! Real thing was great Warren had the crown in his grip ala Jerry. Next althea okay but would have preffered a Dylan tune. Passenger was okay. I was very unimpressed expecially with the dragging beat the entire set and was wanting a refund. Next set was a totally different band I think they cooled Bobby's heels thank god he was ruining the whole show with his grandstanding, like cutting of Warren's solos and trying to be a bluesman which Warren is more capable. Anyway DOing that rag, even though Warren played around with the lyrics, was a good set opener. Next, finally a real bob song, Lazy lightning Bob need to do more Bob he's overkilling Jerry songs "turning over in his grave comes to mind". Next Warren very good song to setup for what was coming up then Bam St stephen and they were off. THey could do no wrong even though Bob couldn't keep a good hold on Crossed Eyed he gets an A for effort. the jam into rolling stone was cool and the lights were great kudos. Rolling Stone cool but we could use more Phil. One song is not enough. Drums very cool with a good beam workout. Short space into He's Gone still I Don't Know why Bob doesn't do more of his own songs a good Estimated would have been nice in this spot. Lovelight was predictable. Aiko with Mickey was fun and got him in the action. All in all the Dead should work more as a team not the Bob/Ratdog review. Once they get over that sparks fly and the reason why we love the dead becomes apparent. Thanks for restoring my faith.
...sounds like a different Bob than the reviews from Red Rocks. maybe he's warnming up for some serious Weir Cheeze since they are headed into SoCal now... but I do recall Bob and Mickey getting busted in San Diego summer '82 after the show when they thought the cops were being too hard on somebody..something like that but they did not play SD for many, many years after that.
watching from the sidelines for 2 more nights before I get the call to be in the game this weekend in NorCal..psyched.
thx for the reviews, sober and non-sober. KK
The poorest first set I've seen in a long long time. Just wasn't happening. Except for the first and last song, completely forgettable.
But the Madman Across the Water was worht the flight to Phoenxi and ticket alone. In fact, from madman all the way through He's Gone was sheer bliss. They totally teased us out of St Stephen with hints of Eleven before going into a creepy, super psychadelic Born Cross Eyed. Damn!
any info on that "you remind me " song?
Here are some random thoughts on the Phx show I posted elsewhere:
Glad to see others enjoyed the Phx show as well. I have seen some pretty bad reviews on other websites, especially of the first set, and I'm not sure what the deal is. I think some folks get too caught up in making nit-picky comparisons and forget to surrender to the moment. To these ears, both sets rocked. THE DEAD! The crowd in Phoenix was awesome...dancing swaying seas of humanity madness.
...and Warren Haynes...awesome set with a killer Elmore James-cum-Pigpen schizoid slide It Hurts Me Too as the highlight. Nice version of Glory Road (although this was more powerful with the whole of the Electric Dead behind it two days later in Irvine). I really wish his sets had been better attended. Did anyone out there tape Warren's set? I'd be very keen to get a copy.
I can't do a comprehensive review but here are some fragments of memory: The jam into Crazy Fingers (CRAZY FINGERS!) was soaring and majestic...and eerie. Passenger... wow...bam!...outta nowhere. Lazy Lightning > Supplication was tight and with Bobby riding strong. Then from Madman through Lovelight was one insane beautiful hellride. I actually liked the juxtaposition of St. Stephen > BCE and was pretty much overwhelmed to get both of these in the same show. Phil was awesome on a very powerful Like A Rolling Stone, which also came out of left field.
Tremendous show. I agree, though, that the second set was more cohesive and powerful than the first. I thought Bobby was pretty cool throughout this show, and I didn't see any hot-dogging or anything of the like.
Peace to those who feel otherwise...
