Quote from: Shug on Aug 02, 2017, 01:20 pmHoly shit 7-12-89 RFK at the movies last night was on fire!!!!!!I had no idea it was a contender for best show of the year. I thought it blew away all of the Alpine Valley shows from later in the week that they showed a few years ago at the movies and on the Downhill From Here DVD.Bruce Hornsby KILLING it and throwing down the gauntlet to Jerry to match him, Jerry and Brent totally locked into one another all smiles for so much of the show and Jerry dancing like it was 1978 in that hot hot hot Women Are Smarter!!!Great first set with an epic Promised Land, too! The Rolling Stones are the number one Chuck Berry cover band, IMO, but the Grateful Dead are right there at number two, plus Jerry takes three verses of soloing at full speed, while Keef and Mick Taylor keep it short most of the time.You say you don't like Dear Mr. Fantasy? Watch this version and see if it don't change your mind, Jerry was ripping it up!so much props to Brent for his great vocals, especially back up with Weir on Cassidy and with Jerry on Black Peter and Dear Mr. Fantasy.That was a KILLER show!!!They are releasing an audio only box set of those two nights at RFK over on Dead.nethttp://www.dead.net/store/1980s/rfk-stadium-1989-box?intcmp=home/bigbanner1

I usually use the Relisten website to stream shows and they have this feature called "Today" that pulls all the shows played on that date in their database. Last week I was listening to 10/17/78 Winterland and heard a song I had never heard and it was "If I Had the World To Give", a Robert Hunter song off Terrapin Station. I really loved it immediately and went to look it up and apparently it was only played 3x ever, all in 78. http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1978/10/17/if-i-had-the-world-to-giveDo any more knowledgeable fans have any insight why such a beautiful song only got played 3x?
