I rarely remember reading any posts that say that drums was a highlight of the show. I must admit that I rarely download, let alone listen to drums. I am curious about the views of others on this issue. Hence, the poll. I mostly am referring to drums of more than five minutes or so.

For those of you who listen to drums and enjoy at least some of them, how about some suggestions on dates with some ones you enjoy.

I personally really enjoy drums, space however would be when I
go out, have a smoke, and check my reality and my head.

I would tend to agree. And I don't mean to diss Space, it's just that that I usually needed to take a piss by then.

Golly, I am truly embarrassed. I am a college prof who teaches marketing research and I left out a viable option. Shame on me. Will I be banned from reading and participating for a few days because of my error!

Hmm. If I was there live I thought it was one of the more entertaining parts of the show. I loved watching the drummers hammering out their magic. Especially the later days when they had all kinds of different gear onstage with them. Then of course when Micky hit those low drone notes on The Beam....that was great stuff.

At home I will often let the drums go on for a bit to see if they are really wailing. When they are, I keep on going, if not I'll skip to the first few minutes of Space and see if it is interesting. If not then it's the last 60 seconds or so of Space to help set up what is coming next.

Good point. The outro of space is pretty key to catch the flow of where the band is headed to next.

Sometimes I listen out of laziness at home, but usually skip it. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised. I like the more exotic drums (Ollin Arageed-ish) or the terrifying Apocalypse Now type stuff. The pre-78 drums are pretty boring though.

I think 4/15/70 is the only drums I always listen to...Now live is a different story. I always enjoyed Mickey crushing those big ones behind him in an outdoor venue like RFK or Buckeye..... I also loved it when they would add just a little delay and reverb for a real mind fuck....Ahhhh, those were the days, having to check my sanity after a sick drums and space knowing Jerry would make everything alright soon after Very Happy

I take a show as a whole and I usually don't skip anything ... to me the Drums/space section helps ti "balance" the show ... its hard to explain but to me it is an important section of the show. Of course some are better other worse!
And ... if I am not alone I am asked to skip the Drums ... when I skip it and other listen to the Space they ask me to get back to the Drums Laughing Twisted Evil

The Drums section of The Dead 2009 is boring becouse they have always the same 4 - 5 samples over the drums section.

I LOVE THE 91-95 ERA DRUMS / SPACE SECTION

Pretty radical. I find that a significant percentage of show recordings botch the transitions into or out of drums, so if you don't download drums you miss the end or beginning of stuff.

I always liked both drums and space at shows, but if I was going to duck out for a bathroom break it would be at the instant the last guitarist unplugged. I tried to never miss space or beam sessions.

Listening at home is another story. Without bone-rattling volume, rarely achieved at home, drums is a big fat nothing. The only exception being the stuff they were doing in '84 (good example: the last two minutes of drums from 6/13/84).

I don't think the drummers played very well together, either during drums or even during the rest of the shows often. Every once in a while a drum segment sounds good, but I still find it boring.
