The Grateful Dead - 12/28/84

phantomengineer:

From rehearsals with the Grateful Dead in San Rafael, CA in June, 1987.  Bob only sings the last two verses, but Dylan and the Dead rock it pretty solidly.

At a about 30 seconds in, a fight breaks out between some Heads and security at this Bloomington, MN show. Bill comes in about a minute later to play peacemaker.

NedBase
Y’all know about DeadBase. Say hello to NedBase. It gathers together all the “performances, rehearsals, and recording sessions where Ned Lagin is known to have performed with the Grateful Dead, or with Phil Lesh, Jerry Garcia, and others. These occurred in the years between 1970 to 1975.” The somewhat shadowy Lagin is the dude responsible for taking the Dead to some of their most outer limits. I suggest digging into the incredibly spacey Garcia/Hart Palace of Fine Arts show from late ‘73 — NedBase sez: “Ned played an Arp Odyssey for most of the show seated at the mix board centered in the audience with Phil next to him mixing in quad.” So many deep vibes. 
I also like this tidbit: 
In 1974, Ned began playing through the vocal system. It was considered the best part of the entire Wall of Sound PA. It had the second highest column of 15-inch bass speakers, second only to Phil. There were 240 speakers total including the center cluster, a 4-way crossover, and 9600 watts of power provided by sixteen Macintosh 300 amps. Ned could be as loud as a jet plane and actually had the capability of lifting the entire stage fully loaded by playing a burst of subsonic notes, which he did a couple of times. When he held a note the speakers created a breeze!

A little behind the times

So Netflix has this other thing I just found out about where you can rent pretty much any DVD through mail.

And on there is a good amount of Dead and Phish shows I’ve never wanted to spend $30 on.
