So here is the deal....a friend of mine is looking for a specific version of Friend of the Devil and I've researched it for him and I can't find any info on it. I'm going to type what he emailed me and maybe you guys will have a clue.
Here is what he had to say: About 10 years ago, my buddy gave me a dead bootleg cd that had "Gay Parees" written on it. I think it also had a year on it, but I can't find or remember it. When my daughter was 8 or 9 she was learning to play the piano, at this same time I was driving her to school every morning while playing the cd. It had an incredible Friend of the Devil that we both really liked, it was like a nine or ten minute version (amount of time to drive to school). I played this Friend, everyday for two weeks, she really liked it which is surprising because my kids are so burned out listening to the dead. She is now a freshmen, away at college, and two weeks ago, out of the blue, she asked me for "that old cd with the really good Friend of the Devil". I can't find it, and my buddy doesn't remember. This Friend of the Devil had a really nice and long piano solo followed by a nice and long guitar solo. I always took the gay Parees to mean Paris, but I don't think its from Paris. I know for sure it was Keith on Keyboard. It had a nice classical sound. 5-7-77, 9-3-77, and 11-24-78 are close but no cigar. I know it's a needle in a haystack but something might pop into your mind about this.
So anyhow guys, I'm not if any of you know of this bootleg, or show, but if so, or any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance to you all for trying to help me and another head out.
Peace And B Wild
Mike
PS- I'm listening. To 2-27-77 right now, and from what I can find there is only one source of this show, which is an audience recording. It's not that bad of a recording and so far the show is a great listen. Just thought I would pass it along if anyone is looking for a nice obscure show to check out

I will recommend deadbase.com

You can search by song, within a certain date range.

You're making it sound like late Keith era, with the close by no cigar idea... and they certainly weren't in Europe during that time.
I'm going to guess, from your description, that it was a 74 show...
So, why would it say Gay Parees if it wasn't France?

I would say, check all the Paris shows out, first. According to deadbase, all Paris shows with a FOTD are... only one.
09-20-74 Palais des Sports, Paris, France

Check that bad boy out...

9/20/74 is only a bit over the four minute mark so it's when they were still playing it fast (A.B. style) So I think you are right colonial it's later. What year did they slow it down and jam it out? Maybe even 81' when they toured Europe again. I don't know if they went to Paris on that tour or not. Koch? Swami?

Good call, and I was thinking the same about the fast/slow versions, well, then it isn't in Paris.
They definitely went to Paris in 81, but 9/20/74 was the only time the GD played FOTD in Paris.

Yes, it was slowed down in the late Keith era, post-retirement.
So, I think Colonial is close on the date, but the Gay Parees marking is incorrect.

Well, for those who have the entire collection, you can sort it by time, and then year, to narrow it down... then sift through what remains. That's a lot of FOTDs, though, and really, would you definitely recognize that one Colonial?

Really, the only clue we have is it's about 10 minutes, which we don't know how accurate that is, and it's Keith era... which does narrow it down a lot. The "Gay Parees" marking appears to be a red herring!

I probably wouldn't recognize it, because don't forget I'm not the one looking for the show. If you read the original post you will see that it is a friend of mine that is looking for that specific FOTD.

I talked to him last night and he said it was definitely Keith playing on the show, and the was a slow version, not fast like A.B. Versions. Seriously any help you can offer would be great.

Well if it's Keith for sure than it's late 70's (post hiatus) Your buddy has his work cut out for him. If I come across one that fits the time period and the length of the tune (around 10-11 minutes I believe you said) I'll let you know.

Yes, I mean, really, we've done all we can at this point, on the information given.

Have your buddy start listening to FOTDs from 76 - early 79... we can't get more specific than this on the information provided. They are pretty much all going to be around that length...

Agreed. Last night I listened to 5/13/77 that had a eight minute version of FOD with a lovely solo from Keith. However in the years that Koch mentions I think all of the FOD's have piano solos Exclamation Confused Shocked Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil Oh well I'm with Koch, Our work is done here. Happy hunting!

Thank you all for giving this your best effort. I knew going into it that it was a needle in a haystack. I was kind of hoping that someone would have the bootleg called "gay parees" and that would have made this so much easier.
With that being said, I appreciate all of your help with trying to get this guy an answer. I have been in constant email contact with him, and he appreciates all of your help as well.
Of anyone has any more suggestions please let me know. I don't know about you guys, but I love helping other deadheads out so hopefully someday, someone will come up with the right show that he is looking for. Until the .....
Mike
