I have been meaning to write a review of this great song for a long time now, but haven't been able to due to relocating, the holidays, etc... so, here it is, my first review from my new home in sunny Florida...

Set One
Hell in a Bucket: The first set starts off with the classic opener, Hell In A Bucket, which incidentally was the first dead song I saw live (not this particular one though). It starts off mediocre, but at the first jam opening Jerry says "Here" and we know that this show has potential. As Swami posted in his 6/11/93 review, the most critical component to any '91+ show is, is Jerry on the scene? The fact that Jerry plays Bucket straight into Jack-A-Roe is a good sign.

Jack-A-Roe Laughing : As soon as Bucket is finished, Jman starts picking at the guitar as though it were a banjo... Phil begins to make his presence felt for the first time in the show about half way through, and Vince is doing quite well, never overpowering, filling in the blanks and raising the stakes each time. Well played.

Same Thing: Bobby decides to slow things down, Phil decides to power up, other than that I usually think this song is almost always the same thing. Just after the 5 minute mark there is a decent Vince solo in there, first via piano, then synth.

Stagger Lee: Jerry seemed for a second not sure if he wanted Stagger Lee or Peggy-O... figuring he already did Jack-A-Roe, he opted for Stagger Lee, leading it off with a fine vocal performance. Everyone was playing solidly, and it went off without a hitch. Jerry resumes the banjo picking to ensure that we never forget that even in the late, great year of 93 he had immense capabilities. Well supported by the rest of the staff, General Garcia more than satisfies on this rendition. Vince does great prep work before the final Jerry solo

Black Throated Wind: Bobby opts for a second slow song, and nails it. Great version of a great americana song.

Dire Wolf: Short but sweet, this song in the 1st set, along with the other Jerry songs already played seals this set's place in the upper echelon. Well played, with Vince getting his high harmony in whilst hitting the keys just right... but, without Jerry, this song is nothing. He nails it. No doubt a great effort. Jerry crushes his short solo.

Let It Grow: Bobby says, ok, time to prepare folks for the 2nd set before we go backstage to prepare ourselves. Bobby, Jerry and Vince start it off beautifully, a must, and the stage is set. Phil comes in with some smart bombs, picking off people in the crowd as he sees fit. He continues to play strongly throughout the song. Jerry has no problem hitting the high notes on his guitar, striking those who had managed to escape the phil bombs. The great jam starts off kind of soft, Jerry had a momentary lapse of reason, but he recovers, pushed forward by Phil. Phil owns this LIG. Jerry keeps it calm, unfortunately, because we had a ton of potential here. At the final portion of the jam Jerry remembered he was playing, probably woken up by Vince on the keys, and says I know this song, and puts forth a somewhat redeeming effort. The end goes beautifully, then Bobby informs us of there imminent return...

Set Two
Scarlet>Fire: The boys chose to come out of the gates charging. While backstage they must have said, hey, lets play one of the most amazing 2nd sets ever. They used to break to come back out focused and more energized. Vince plays a bigger role, Phil is still rocking out, Jerry is singing strongly, and Bobby is a little low in the mix, too bad. The trade off is that Jerry is high in the mix and nailing it as we demand. The mid-song Scarlet jam lets us know we are going to get a major energy level boost. They fix the sound levels and Bobby comes up in the mix just in time for the transition jam, thank goodness... Jerry guides us through a melodic dreamlike state. This transition is beautiful, though I wished the jam were a bit longer... but I always do, on every jam of every song I have ever heard by them! Lest I come away disappointed, Jerry makes sure that he and everyone else thoroughly enjoys the Fire jamming, hearkening back to the year of 1990 with his performance. solid, solid, solid! Vince is more energized now, Bobby is playing awesome riffs, Phil still on, the drummers awake... this is a great Fire on the Mountain. The highlight of the show up to this point. Bobby is on fire himself up to the end, and rather than stopping the music, they jam is straight into...

Playing in the Band: Wow, this set is shaping up quite nicely. Breaking the norm, the boys don't have a complete stop after fire... there is a little noodling that leads to a very energized playing in the band. Bobby realizes that he has not made one lyrical flub yet and quickly tosses one in so we can be sure it is actually the Grateful Dead playing and not robots... Doesn't matter, this night is magic at this point. This song is again well played, again beautiful, not overwhelmingly powerful, but all the right notes are landing and the gets spacey. We, with the benefit of hindsight realize what is coming, at the time, it must have been magic.

Dark Star: Just for shits and giggles, they throw in a verse of Dark Star. The PITB had progresses into the stratosphere, and the role out DS. Not even sure who let into it, but Jerry controls it. Vince supports well, and Phil continues to drop bombs. The initial jam starts very focused and full of expression, and then they calm down for the 1st lyrical verse, with slight effects in place and a great guitar echoing Jerry's voice... awesome. Of course, the shortness of the tune leaves you wanting more, but getting rewarded by a Terrapin ain't half bad, especially at this point of the set!

Terrapin Station Shocked Shocked Shocked: They slip gently into the Terrapin, led by Jerry of course. The drummers hit the symbols and the notes beginning raining down on the audience, who must've been in a state of severe disbelief at this point. Anyone who was there? Please speak up about this set if you were! Bobby is ready to play... amazingly, the pre drums was 4 Jerry songs with only 1 Bobby song, that doesn't happen to often. That means, Jman is hot! Bobby was ready to support that. Often, in the later years, when Jerry was off, I felt Bobby would step up, he didn't need to this night. He instead enjoys the fact that not only is Jerry on, but EVERYONE is... and he decides he'd better keep up! Jerry hits all the lyrics in Lady with a Fan The first fan jam is great, as it should be... as is the second
The bridging jam to Terrapin is solid, bold and beautiful... INSPIRATION! One of the best Terrapins, definitely my favorite post 3/15/90 TS. These guys are all over it... the energy builds and builds... shivers running down my back! That is the sign... that is what they did to me back at my first show that completely hooked me. The drummers push everyone further... Jerry is practically screaming, but he keeps his note... TERRAPIN! Now we enter the Turtle Jam, as I call it, wow. If you haven't begun downloading this by now, shame on you! Stop reading and do it. The jamming goes on, we are entering the exploration zone and who is this starting to really step up? Vince! All the Vince bashers, listen to this show... and this that comes next in particular...

Tubular Jam 1: At the end of TS, we think we are going to the drums, but no... Vince pulls out the "Tubular Jam"... Very mellow, like a keyboard led MLB jam almost. Everyone is feeling it, Vince is not overpowering, but the other seem to be playing in support of his sweet, mellow riffs... By the end of the jam, Jerry is hitting the MIDI, Bobby gives a great rhythm, Jerry goes back to guitars, Vince plays a sound like bells, Phil provides some rhythm, it seems the drummers are reaching for special tools to enter drums... the stringed instruments do not give up easily, and Vince plays some overlaying synth interrupted by a final tubular riff before the drums take over

Drums: The drums are the drums here folks
Space: Leads into...

Tubular Jam 2 Shocked Shocked Shocked: This time it gets fully developed. Beautiful, great, perfect choice for coming out of space. Jerry heavy on the MIDI in the beginning, and gently move to his undistorted guitar. Vince is the highlight here, but all are involved in the effort!

Easy Answers: I love the energy of this song. I realize most hate this song, cheesy answers, da da... I like it. I would prefer it in a different spot in the set list! That being said, do not skip it, for the sake of the rest of the show being taken in whole...

Days Between Shocked Shocked Shocked: I cannot say enough about this song. First, this night, Jerry must have decided the guitar pick was entirely optional. This rendition of Days is flawless. Right from the beginning Jerry puts his all into the singing. Vince is laying the background synth there perfectly, Phil is mellow, the drums tapping the symbols just right, Bobby starts with some spirals in the background. Phantom ships set off, and we have no lyrical flubs in this version, another plus. By lonesome candle I am lost in the beauty of the song, and Phil forces his way onto the scene with a couple of bombs... the first jam is short and building up to the second chorus wonderfully... by this point, there is no denying this is a great rendition, my favorite ever... Bobby's guitar wailing so perfectly, and Jerry taps in, strumming just right, Phil bombs us again... the final crescendo is pulled off perfectly, first Jerry's fingers would not go astray and then his pick was utilized to the same result, Bobby wailing away, Phil defending freedom with his arsenal, Vince steps in for the finale.

Good Lovin': Bobby, rewarding himself, leads us into Good Lovin'. Will we get a rant? Nope... Good Good Lovin'

Encore: IFTL - hard to screw this one up, a solid finish to an amazing night.



Set I summary: Not full of energy, but played beautifully, and get this, flawlessly. I did not hear one lyrical flub or instrumental faux pax. Relax first, or let this set relax you... either way you will end up melting into your chair by the time Let It Grow is finished. Vince is definitely playing how most people prefer, as a supporting act. Phil is on, especially by the end. Jerry is pretty consistent, but never really completely dominates. Bobby puts forth a good effort, especially lyrically and vocally... the drummers, well, they drum. Not the best first set, but well played. Highlight = Bucket>Jack-A-Roe

Set II summary: Beautiful. One of my favorite second sets of all time. They play just right, through the whole set. So serene. Makes up for the lack of energy of the first set while maintaining the beautiful sound, great. Anyone who doubts 93 should listen to this set. Pre-drums, full of energy and every note is right on... the first lyrical flub occurs by Bobby, during PITB... We should give him a break though, a brand new song with so many lyrics! Not like a Dylan song. I always found it funny he would nail every Dylan song but constantly flub PITB, UJB and Truckin'... Question Anyhow, the setlist thus far is nothing short of legendary. Post drums continued to please, the Tubular Jam surpassing the predrums effort. The energy and focus was not lost. There was no lyrical flubs by Jerry in the perfect Days Between, or the whole show for that matter! Pretty cool for 1993! JMAN RULES. This whole second set is one for the ages. The fact that only one lyric in the whole show was flubbed leads to the broader point I am trying to make, they were also hitting their instruments correctly at all times. The second set was also higher energy, but not too much for you 70s heads. I guarantee, this set will not disappoint even the staunchest of 70s heads. Check it out man. Highlights: ALL

Overall: Get it now, listen now.

Thought I would bump this one up after the listening party.
Too bad only Gopher was there for it, other than me and swami, as he is a full convert to this show, as I am sure anyone who gave it an honest listen would be.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

Excellent sir! I am sure you will like it.
The Miller-Wiley is actually the best sound quality on that one...

OK, I just switched to that source, the Jack A Roe on this is killer for sure, can't wait to hear the second set.

I pretty much "forget" everthing I heard from this show, all I know is that I enjoyed everybit of it! I'll say it again, the only let down was the Black-Throated Wind, many better 90s versions to be found.

Great review! It makes me very excited to those days in the future when I'll make it out of 1992 and go straight into 1993... with all those lovely new songs, and a band even better than usual!

And wow... Tubular Jam 2 > Easy Answers out of Space? Sounds amazing to me (and I too am an Easy Answers fan - not the best Bobby song but it's still a very good one IMO). Gotta love unconventional combos out of Drumspace.

Ok I got thru this last night and all I can say is WOW! The second set is just off the cuff and so fucking beautiful it hurts. Now the cool thing is that just a few days earlier I stumbled upon this and think EVERYONE should invest the 25 min and see where it leads you. ESPECIALLY the last 5 or so minutes because this will give you a very good appreciation for the Tubular Jam, which not everyone seems to familiar with so here is the link:

You will notice that this was used for the theme from the Excorcist. Be patient as this piece of music takes many turns and drifts in and out of movements. If you inresested in more here is the Wiki

The pre and post jam here is what we are focusing on. At about the 13 minute mark in the outro Terrapin Jam Vince starts the theme, and it is toyed with by him for a few minutes. He doesn't get to agrresive with things and the jam falls away and the drummers take over.

After drums we get a little darker feel with a few seconds of deep droning weirdness. The last stand of the evil spirit as things have been washed away. Then Vince.....FUCKIN VINCE!!!! goes right back into the finishing movement ( of side one if you've been reading the wiki) This is nothing short of greatness! I mean what a fantastic piece of music to throw in there. It fits so nicely. Just beautiful. I can't get over how good this sounds and also this shows that Vince was really coming up with some good ideas. This theme is not that popular within the deadhead circles ( there is not a huge mention of it in the reviews at the archive or a few other places I've checked out.) What great hour or so music here.

Unfortunatley Bob Weir wasn't paying much attention as he totally lays perhaps one of the biggest eggs he has EVER layed in his carreer. Fucking Cheesy Ansewers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You kidding right Bob? This is the equvalent of having your kids walking in on you while you are getting busy with mom. You can try to go back to it by shooing them out and closiing the door, but it's just not gonna be the same. Same thing here Bob, you ruined the mood.....YOU FUCKING RUINED THE SHOW! Garcia doesn't help either with Days Between, but really all momentum was lost with Easy Ansewers.

If EVER a show screamed for a one song dramatic close out after space this was it. A DEW to finish this set with them walking off and it may have well gone into the books as a legenary show. Hell even finsh the Playin!!!!! Instead what we have here is a GREAT hour of music that deserves a place on the shelf with some of the others. Complete show? No.....Segment of music YES!!!!

Please spare me the hate mail. You know Cheesy doesn't work here. It doesn't belong next to that beautiful segment...not even in the same area code. First set,?Sure. Here No! What a wasted effort by Vince. He deserved better here.

Yes, the Easy Answers was a ridiculously bad call... how about a PITBR as you mentioned, or a Wheel, out of that Tubular Jam?
I am glad you liked the Tubular Jam, I too find it absolutely amazing.

I look past the Easy Answers, though it is tough, because to me, Days Between is the ultimate ballad. I understand you don't like it, but I really love it. A Dew to close the set... never really considered that... that would have been something else.

Thanks for the info regarding the Tubular Jam. I will look into that when I get home from work. I always figured it was from his days in The Tubes... never made the connection to the Exorcist, partly because I have watched that movie 2 times, and will NEVER watch it again. Scares the absolute Easy Answers out of Space out of me...

Koch the Exorcist part you are familiar with is a rather small segment of the bigger piece. What you really want to do is get to the end. That's not saying that the other music in the piece is not good. But it that last bit in which Vince got his inspiration.

I LOVE the Easy Answers out of Space, and I think it worked perfectly. All - or most of - Weir's songs are cheesy. Clearly there is a bias against songs from the 90s and I will never get why. "Truckin" is a very cheesy song, but it wouldn't have drawn any complaints out of Space. I guess the old songs get a break simply because they were on American Beauty, Workingman's Dead, or whatever.

And Days Between is up there with any Jerry ballad ever written or played.

I don't feel that there is a weak spot in 9-13-93's 2nd Set whatsoever. None.

I would complain if it started off with that acursed whistle!
But, you do make a good point.

People tout American Beauty/Workingman's as these AMAZING albums... but really, they were far from it. It is just what they were used to perhaps, or came up on.

Not one studio album is amazing.

I will fully disagree with you on that and say that imo American Beauty (although I may have heard it too many times) and Workingman's Dead are amazing albums.
I have listened to this show as pointed out, very solid across the board, obviously (to me) the second set is killer.

Woah there.. FULLY disagree here. Bob has cheesy songs, more than Jerry, but not all are cheesy. Estimated is a lot of things, but it is not cheesy. Potential for cheese, sure, but it's not inherently cheesy. Let it Grow is not cheesy. THE OTHER ONE is not cheesy. Truckin is not cheesy. Cassidy is not cheesy. Me and My Uncle isn't cheesy.

Easy Answers is the undisputed King of Weir Cheese.

Really?
I consider all GD studio albums to be rather lame-o, and would never listen to one over a show if given the choice...
As far as comparing it to other studio albums, they are not my favorite, but not my least favorite either. I just can't consider any studio album to be "amazing"...

Yes really.
American Beauty is a really pure rock and roll album, with all winning songs, with Jerry destroying the steel guitar in places.
Ripple, Attics, both better than any live version

Workingman's is a darker mystical album that I never get sick of. Easy Wind, Cumberland, Black Peter, New Speedway Boogie, directly off the top of my head as crusher versions.

Both albums have a perfect flow to me, and the production that was put into them was from a studio golden age, ask many digging djs, and they will acknowledge that the early 70s is a gold mine for stealing beats and riffs for dj music off of records because it all came together then. Rate Workingman's over 85% of boots I have heard, American Beauty is different because I have heard it so many times, I don't know anymore.

Call me crazy, but I'm going to dial this one up for the ride while I go do some errands. Album speaks to me man, there is no soft spots, one solid piece of awesomeness to me, pure gold.

However, if I were to call a soft spot, Casey Jones, but probably only because it gets so much play on the radio and is such a recognized Dead song. Perfect ending song though. UJB is played a lot too, but that one is too solid to be knocked.

Koch did you ever get around to checking out that Tubular Bells clip I linked above. It is a long piece but I'm curious to hear your thoughts?

You know, I probably did, but since I can't remember, I will do it again... my computer access is a problem these days, as my wife likes to ration me access to her laptop.

After another listen to this show, I'm not overly impressed. Gets points for strength of setlist, and the Terrapin>tubular>drums>tubular is pretty great. But the rest of the show seems kinda lethargic. I'm not feeling the energy. The Scarlet>Fire is pretty good, but it just doesn't soar like it should. And the post-space really doesn't do it for me. There are better 93 shows than this one.

I'd have to listen to them again, but off the top of my head:

8/22 Autzen
3/11 Rosemont
6/9 Palace
6/11 Buckeye
and yes, 12/19 Very Happy

12/19 rears is broken voice again...
Uh, yeah... ok. Not a chance there, but to each his own.

At least the Autzen show is a contender (though in all honesty I prefer the 1st night much better). The rest of the list... not so much.

In fact, I think June had a good deal of sloppiness to it, though still enjoyable.
