For Deadheads and Dylan Fans

This should cover just about everyone.



Were they breaking into another song at the end? I wonder what it was?

Hard to tell what they were getting into. The Dead were great at leading the crowd and teasing with the opening of a song and in an instant do a complete 180 degree turn and play something else.

They were totally unpredictable.

thanks for the post - you know your audience! that sure wasn't a smooth transition into whatever their next jam was!

Sweet Watchtower with Dylan. When I listened to that end, it sounded like they were going into a Stella Blue or maybe a Wharf Rat. . .

Researched it, and found the answer-- Stella Blue . . .

This show is 12-28-90, Oakland, CA . . .

Nice post . . .

In my mind I would have liked to believe the follow-up song was "Hell in a Bucket," because at least we would be enjoying our current ride!!

Thanks Oceanshaman. I may be wrong, but I doubt that any other group's concerts have been cataloged like The Dead's.

Their reheasals were even archived. I think the whole archive was given to University of Cali, Berkley. That's a lot of music.

Nice call Shaman!

Only two other bands I know with similar setlist archives out there-- Phish and String Cheese Incident . . .

There may be more . . . but that's all I know . . .

Hey Shaman you got it. I remember as a teenager a few of us arguing with a friend that was a "Led Head."

He always insisted that Led Zeplin was better than the Dead. Then he went to see them three nights in a row.

He came home with his tail between his legs and admitted that all three shows were mirror images, exactly the same, even the jokes.

I like Led Zeplin, but better than the Dead? Na
