I was listening to the Viola Lee Blues from 4/6/69, which is fucking outstanding, and realized there is no thread for VLB on this site...

4/26/69.

Best fucking encore they EVER did! my absolute FAVORITE Viola...this [CENSORED] is scary, intense, blissed-out, furious, psychedelic music...it's Good Ol' Grateful Dead! the setlist is a dream even BEFORE the long, long encore...great fidelity on the soundboard, too...anyone who hasn't heard/doesn't have this one NEEDS to remedy that, ASAP.

Grateful Dead
Electric Theater
Chicago, IL
April 26, 1969



CD 1:
Set I: [1:59:33+]

6. What's Become Of The Baby [8:05] >!!!! *

8. We Bid You Goodnight [3:38]


* the band layered live "Feedback/Space" over a studio version of WBOTB piped through the P.A. this studio version is NOT the one on Aoxomoxoa. it makes for some freaked-out/tripped-out listening...gonna pop this in after the 8/21/72 Dark Star i'm listening to ends.

on second thought, i think i'll step outside for a cigarette 1st, let my brain cells reassemble a bit.

The last one is cool (10/31/70) - While the jam doesnt last forever and go into the ozone, as it gets really cranking, they segue perfectly into a high octane Cumberland. 5/2/70 is also the shiznit. Also always dug the 68 haight St jam version because thats the first i ever heard on a live tape.

Yeah, the Halloween 70 is of course a classic... I am not sure if it is my favorite though, though it goes into Cumberland perfectly. Someone posted here one day how they were ultimately almost the same song, with different lyrics.

The Montery Pop Fest has one of my favorite Viola's. The Dead were the meat in a The Who and Hendrix sandwich. Wow they delivered. The whole show was great but Viola was the standout song. The end of it just goes crazy and I swear there is a metal breakdown at the end for about 2 seconds. After I finish listenin to this Scarlet>Victim>Fire I think I will return to the Montery Pop for yet another listen. Also Tommy Smothers has stage banter telling people the Beatles are not there. Phil replies with let them in for free. Could you imagine walkin in to that show for free and seein Hendrix set his guitar on fire.

A little off topic here, but I had bootleg of the Hendrix set that was quite awesome. The tape quality sucked but the recording picked up the crowd reaction AFTER Hendrix's ' sacrifice'. That was more fun than listening to the shitty quality tape. To say their minds were blown is an undestatement. Then as the stage is breaking down , the tape keeps rolling as a kid asks for the literfluid can. Some older guys start pleading his case...." Give the kid the can man......kid lives for this shit.....C'mon man, give him the can. Just a great document of a historic performance.

3/21/70 (from chinarider79's suggestion to me) has some serious climatic musical catharsis element to it! Check it out.

Never liked this tune. Never understood the fuss over it. Auto-skip

I'd have to go with the 1967-08-04 VLB as my favorite. I know it cuts off at the end. I know we only have two songs from this show. I know the quality of the tape/recording is not the best. But the energy and intensity of this version is unbelievable. If you have half an hour to check out this treasure, you really should. In '95, I'd have traded pretty much every show played for this half hour (3/25 and 7/9 exceptions noted). And who doesn't love a set list of New Potato Caboose, Viola Lee Blues?
