The two songs I most look for on a set list, good versions of which make a first set for me:

Candyman
Althea

Other selections are more subject to the vicissitudes of moods or phases...

Yeah, those are good ones. If I was listing the best ones (which makes a better thread premise anyway than my idiosyncratic first post) I'd include:

Shakedown
Deal
Loose Lucy
High Time (when good)
Bertha
Jack Straw
Half Step

Ah yes, Deal & 1/2 Step should be included!

So, you mean, must have songs?
Or songs that make you want to hear the show regardless of the rest of the setlist?

The latter was my original idea. But most things I can go in and out of the mood for, whereas if well-executed, Althea and Candyman would always make a first set for me. But a better and more participatory topic would be best 1st set songs in general...incidentally we both seem to be thinking of post-1980 first sets, or maybe post-1976, but in any case not including Dark Star, PITB, or various rarities...of course China>Rider would have to be included but it seems mostly to be an outlier...I was thinking of standard stuff...

Most definitely I am thinking 80s... 83ish...
Big RR and Cumberland are two songs from 83 that always intrigue me... especially when performed together in the set.

10/8/89

Start of set two

Help on the way
Slipknot
Franklins towe
Victim of the crime
eyes of the world

First of all I can't say this started the show, but I figured I would add mt two cents in, and IT DOES START THE SECOND SET.

I was at this show and to this day it brings chills down my back when I hear it. Not only was it unexpected, but IMHO I think the grateful dead became the grateful dead when Blues for Allah came out. I damn near [CENSORED] myself, when they broke out help, slip, franklins. I cant think of a better way to start a show or a second set.

Let me just say this - I am a fucking asshole, ok? I'm a douchebag anal-renentive son-of-a-bitch. Fine. But please folks...the title of this thead is "Best First Set Songs." I mean - is it really that hard to stay focused??!!

I've always really enjoyed the following in the middle of a First Set (in addition to some Half Steps, Deals, and Altheas already mentioned):

Brown-Eyed Women
Loser
Black-Throated Wind
Jack-A-Roe

Almost never a letdown with the above.

Here Comes Sunshine from 73. Loved this one and really miss the fact that they stopped playing this.

The versions in the 90s are not included as things I like in the first set though. Not crazy at all about these versions.

Really swami.....sorry I didnt follow the thread to the letter of the law. I thought we started threads for conversations and opinions. I have seen MANY threads that went off into areas that had nothing to do with the original thread. Next time PM me if you have something to say

I'll never understand the El Paso hate... that is always a song I thoroughly enjoy.
Can one of you El Paso dissers explain what it is that you don't like about it? I'm perplexed.

I go back and forth with this one. I think some of the "haters"might not like it because they played it ALOT until the late 80's - sort of the same dissing of MAMU, Mexicali etc.. I used to not really be a fan of it but later enjoyed it. However if I am listening to a show I might skip it to get to the "meat".
To turn the tables, I have never understood your dissing of BIODTL. Rockin jug band tune IMO. But hey, there are many colors in our rainbow Laughing

Most often I just skip some songs if it's post-break, roughly. Pre-break I often just cut to the chase.

That actually is pretty much what I do... other than at listening parties, during which I take advantage as clunker songs to refill or drain... as needed.

When you've been listening to the GD for roughly 30 years, ya need to cheat, or skip the foreplay and get on with the "schtupping" as Koch says!

'pre-' and 'post-break' meaning 1975, I just noticed that could be ambiguous.

I don't listen to a lot of versions of 'Little Red Rooster', lets just say that.

I also notice that, in the later shows where there is drums-space (which I rarely listen to), if I am in the car and get somewhere after listening to pre-drums, I may not go back to the post-drums, depending on the setlist. there are only so many Miracle>Wharf Rat>Throwing Stones>NFA or whatever that I want to spend my life listening to. If the Jerry ballad is anything besides Wharf Rat I will usually at least listen to that, and I'll listen to Other One. And if I am in the mood and rolling, Wharf Rat>TS>NFA can be groovy. But although Wharf Rat is a great song I don't need to hear a lot of versions, I find.

Sorry Swami, there was some first set chatter in there...

I go through phases with WR... sometimes I like it, rarely I love it, but most of the time I don't want to hear it yet again...

Yes, the 80's post-space often got repetitious... which is unfortunate. I wonder why they did that? I mean, they were bouncing all over the place for most of the shows, but they never considered big time shaking up of these post-space doldrums?

Wharf Rat is one of my favorite Jerry ballads but even I get sick of it, especially the (insert Bob song) Wharf>Throwaway.
Koch - I agree about the repetition. Not sure why they would repeat the same songs or "patterns" time and again. One of my pet peeves...
It would be interesting to count how many times they did the following in the 80's: Truckin>Black Peter>R&R>(Good Lovin /OMSN/JB Goode), Other One>Stella>Black Peter>R&R>(Good Lovin /OMSN/JB Goode) or the bob>wharf>throwaway. And in the late 80's the Wheel and/or, Gimme Some Lovin and/or Miracle >Mr. Fantasy>Hey Jude was way overplayed.

Didn't say I "hated" EP. I just think it's a throw-away tune that I could miss to take care of business and it filled Bobby's cowboy tune slot when he couldn't do Mexicali. Plus, I recall reading that Mickey hated playing it, which probably tainted my view.

This is a pretty difficult thread to get a handle on. As you read through, a lot of the songs and groups of songs we seem to agree on as being great in the first set are seemingly even better when placed in the second set. Obviously, that's not always the case, but generally the boys gave a little more after set one.

Not that we need to compare or judge, as we already all do plenty of that, but I just wanted to put it out there.

H>S>F from 4/29/77 first set or H>S>F from 10/9/89 second set. Those would be hard to compare no matter what criteria you would choose (era, set, keyboardist, JG's guitar, Bobby's 'do, Billy's hair).

By the way, did anyone happen to look up or know if there are some songs that never appeared in the second (or later) set? That might be interesting. Then you could truly narrow down what a first set only group of songs would be.

Let The Good Times Roll never appeared beyond Set 1 and only appeared as a show opener.

LTGTR was great - love it! Reminds me of a couple of Cap Centre shows: 3/16/90 and 3/8/92....interestingly which both opened with the trio Let The GT Roll, Touch of Grey, Minglewood Exclamation Question Idea Certainly the only two times in which that particular trio was played, and both at the same venue .. one with the late Brentski, and the other in the Bruce Era.

Scholars are contrarians by nature. Good call Dude!

But damn, now we are stuck continuing to look for the ever-elusive "only played in set one" tune/s.

Deadlisted'd.

I was using Deadlists to search first set, second set and encore slots and the set list for 5/6/89 has LTGTR listed as "Good Times", not the full name. D'OH!

Never trust a prankster .......

Ok, this is fairly obvious, and doesn't really fit the context...
They played some songs acoustically that never hit the 2nd set, in the Dead Set period and NYE 81 with Joan Baez...

Here are some wild guesses from me... (not counting encore slot)
Liberty
Walking the Dog
Down in the Bottom
Superstitious
LRR (doubt this is accurate)
Walkin' Blues (also doubt this)

Have they ever played "Samba in the rain" as a show starter?

non, no I have a better question .... have they ever started a show with a Brent and/or Vinny tune? Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Looks Like Rain definitely not, Walkin' Blues seems like a good guess though...if they did it in the 2nd set it was probably only once.

Gimme Some Lovin', I believe, started off some shows (Brent & Phil), as has Let The Good Times Roll...
Also Hey Pockey Way...

According to deadlists, no "Walking Blues" in set two, no "Walkin Blues" in set two, and they refuse to even consider "Walkin' Blues."

It looks like 120 LLRs in the second set, every year from 1972 on except 1974, 1975, 1977, 1978, 1982 and 1983.

This deadlist [CENSORED] is fun.

It looks like you hit it with Walkin' the Dog too.

Yeah, that was a brain fart... I remember many a hot show where Bobby decided to crap out that accursed excuse for a song.

What about Big RR Blues? Maybe in the 2nd set in the early years.

I would bet that any such 1st set only song would be from the late 70s or later...

I think Koch had "LRR" as in Red Rooster? right Koch. actually they did play it in 1980 in the 2nd set. the first two times they broke it out - 2nd set. Walkin the Dog was played super rarely, pretty sure not in a 2nd set, unless it was like 1970.
Superstituous/Bottom - 1st time it was played came pre-drums, Berkely, 84

And another Brent/PHil tune they started off a show or set with : Do It In the Road. Far From Me and Blow Away started a 2nd set or two as well.

I would have puked if they did Walkin Blues in the 2nd set. this one really does not count.....

05-28-82 Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco, Ca. (Fri)
1: Alabama> Greatest, Althea, Rooster, Tennessee Jed, Truckin> Drumz**> GDTRFB> NFA
2: Walking Blues*, A Mind To Give Up Livin*, Lovelight*> Johnny B. Goode*
*with Boz Scaggs & John Cipollina **with Flora Purimwith Airto Moreira - Vietnam Vets benefit - lineup: Country Joe; GD; Jefferson Starship - only "A Mind To Give Up Livin" - last "Walking Blues": 10-07-66 [1297]

This is an interesting thread. What about Its All Over Now? Memphis Blues? ever in Set II??

I am glad to see this thread has gotten some legs. I was wondering myself about the Dylan songs. They can be looked at two ways. Basically, you have shows with Dylan on the bill and those without. Most of the Dylan & The Dead shows ran with the collaborative set between the two GD sets. So, if you count them, then most of the Dylan tunes would be out.

This would be even harder if you only looked at songs (at least partially) composed by members of the band...

He did say LRR! Then he must have forgotten and accepted my response.

The shows they did in 87 had the Dead do one long set, or 2 sets, then a long set backing Dylan, and then a couple encores (usually Touch and a Dylan tune)

Clearly, my memory is going. I need to consult the Deadbase before I post!

Damn! That's twice in two days you "dicks" (Koch on my New Speedway post and the Dude here) have been all over me!

I'm not gay enough for a double dicking like that! Laughing
