How do you rate these "Crypticals" from 1985?

Garcia's heart was so not into it. Half-measures in any realm suck. Too much mumbling, not enough remembering of either the jam or the lyrics. Sometimes rehearsals are fucking mandatory.

Yeh, doesn't work for me either. For better or worse they were a different band in 1985, I don;t think they had the 'energy' required to pull it off (or the rehearsal attitude, for that matter).

I voted for "What song is that?"

I know what the song is, but in the rebirth of Cryptical I am not sure the band even knew what song it was or how it was supposed to sound. I was always hoping Little Star would have become like the 80s Crytical. Just think it could have been called, "That Star For The Other One".

In which case that is what I will now refer to those few performances of one of Bobby's masterpieces.

I too had to go with so so on this one. None of the revival performances were memorable beyond their date significance (return of, final time played). Musically, they were all pretty forgettable.

I love the transition from He's Gone > Cryptical on 6/30/85. Jerry is bending out those twangy, acid drenched notes and they segue perfectly into it. Sheer bliss, until he started to sing Shocked
I think with more practice it could have been cool, but he was not into it.

better left in the time machine. At least, they had the good taste to stop it quickly.

Cryptical always sucked, it should have been an instrumental...the words are dumb and Jerry can't sing it, but musically it's pretty cool.

As for 1985, of course I voted abortion, they could barely get through the fucking thing.

I also went with abortion...

I mean, he REALLY couldn't sing it then, and they didn't jam it out, which at least made it cool back when they were rocking it at its best!
