...is the real deal. I mean, that segment is just AMAZING to listen to. The first part of that jam, in particular, I mean, :::whoa, Nellie:::
And to lovehaight - saw your admonishing of JK on all three nights and hey, while I don't agree I get where you're coming from. I enjoy this band, but can understand your sentiments. I have read a lot of what people have to say regarding what exactly JK is trying to do, and what the rest of the boys see in him that they wanted to explore...if JK is indeed a "Garcia impersonator" (just look up "Furthur fake Jerry" on the internet, yo), and was hired to do as much....then, yeah....I guess it works? The Doors did the same thing, and so did Creedence. But I prefer to listen to this band's instrumentation and ignore what JK is up to when inflecting Garcia's vocal patterns *to an exact T*. It's just wearisome. Warren? Well, he, for his part, had zero interest in copying anything Garcia, and some had problems with the fact that he wasn't like Jerry enough. Guess you can't please everyone - especially uptight old deadheads.
So yeah, I guess JK does Jerry "well", for what it is. I guess one could always impersonate Garcia....badly??? How would that happen, exactly? Reminds me of an old Roger Ebert article where he asked a carny what was the difference between a good geek and bad geek. The carny replied, "Want to see the chickens?"
Subject: Love this band and always will
I am so very GRATEFUL that they are still playing and making great music.
I saw them in Columbus at the LC which was amazing and have tickets for the Cinci show in November - I can't wait!
The Rhythm Devils, Bill and Mickey, are playing great music as well. Just another part of their journey - every fan should embrace this music while we still have them!!!!!!!
Listening to Throwin Stones right now and have chills - don't know what more to say.
Subject: I couln't have said it better
ps- Someone needs to wash lovehaight's mouth out with soap. I've read other reviews by this person where he calls other reviewers idiots. I say he because I've never known a woman who behaves this poorly.
Subject: We Are All Blessed!
Subject: try to be objective and just listen to the music
Subject: this is wonderful
Subject: just enjoy the music
Subject: lovehaight ????
Subject: thanks drpinky
Subject: you suck
the show gets 5 stars.
Subject: Hey "LoveHaight"
Subject: Comes a time
These guys are good. Real good. I like what they're doing musically. Bob & Phil seem to really like playing with this lineup. It shows in the music. Bob does less talk-singing than with The Dead. The songs take on different jams and the music is still experimental. My only complaint is: no Drums/Space. I like it when they get weird. Sometimes the jams get spacey, but no clear space or drums is present. Oh well. More music that way, I guess. Maybe they'll space it up on the East coast fling.

Chimenti deserves some mention. In my honest opinion he's a better player than keith or brent, and I love both Keith and Brent. His playing on King Solomons Marbles is awesome.
I also love the drums on this. They just sound a little crisper, a little more youthful than billy and mickey.
Oh, and Phil is on fire.
Subject: Fantastic fun!
Needless to day this is my own personal eccentricity and not really even an opinion. Bottom line is this line-up and this show in particular take the Grateful Dead and transport it somewhere far away yet oh-so-familiar. This is absolutely wonderful, beautiful, and any other adjective you can throw in there. I mean this band sounds so tight, like they have been playing for years. I got see the solo Dead show in 08' and a few in 09' and I must say that this is way above those shows. I had a lot fun and had some nice moments at those shows, but this is just wow... I have to see this band; it is my destiny.
Oh and by the way, if you haven't downloaded this show yet, you better get movin'.
Subject: Great music...
Seriously, I can't believe that alot of you guys want to hear JK sing more, he sounds nothing like Jerry, Stu sounds like Jerry if anyone...JK's singing is the part that kinda cheeses it up for me. Hopefully they keep him at two song minimum like they did with Warren last spring.
Subject: thank god for the grateful dead
Subject: Yahoo!! They're back!!
Sound in the theater was a bit weird, though. In front of the speakers (I mean, like directly - my ears are still ringing) on Phil's side, you could not hear Kadlecik on Nite 1; Nite 2 was a little better, Nite 3 was best. But still, very loud but without the usual clarity. When I moved 20-30 feet right - hello, there's John! Whoever was at the board, get it together! You expect more bass and keys on the left, but come on!
Performances all three nights were amazing, but Night 3 was (IMO) bonkers from the very first note. Fantastic performances, and we will be up front and bopping whenever this lineup manifests again. More!
One more note: Bobby, smile a little!
Subject: Go on home your Mama calling you
Set two is wonderful and I will just add, listen to this Cassidy and you will witness the potential of this band. They weave a majestic and passionate new interpetation on this song and the results are beautiful and inspired. Then to drift into DS, although the jam is slightly weak, is very cool.
It is a very good version by the way.
JK really creates something quite special and demonstats he can add something of his own to the GD song book.I also have to give a big shout out to the new rhythm section this guys really gell the entire show. I love Billy and Mickey, but these guys deserve credit for some magical work.
Phil's new song is wondefully refreshing with a cool intrumental sandwiched in the middle. Now we just need Hunter to share a few new ones with this band.
The end of the set is very strong with an outstanding Sugar Magnolia and an amazing SSDD.
Then the inside joke for the encore.
We are definetly not going home guys.
Subject: Wish i was there, this sounds real nice
King Solomon's is rather nice two.
Thanks for this recording it's the best of the sources i've heard so far. Way better than the Nuemann source i (had) of 9/20.
and yeah Bobby, anytime you want to let John sing the Jerry tunes in this outfit will be fine by me.
5 stars for a 5 star post Jerry project.
Subject: .....and so it begins....
Subject: yeah to the boys in oakland
thanks to the boys for coming together, fox theater for having a special space, and the fans for being there to complete the circle.
a ripping 2nd set opening with viola - cumberland - viola.
what a weekend
Subject: Can we go any furthur?
Ohio Loves you all
Subject: further fox.....
Now if we can only get Bobby back into his cowboy outfits. Oops. Showing my age.
Subject: Let John Sing!!!!
Just wished Bobby would stop Ratdoggin' it on the Lyrics he's not suppose to sing...
& They Really Should Add the Grateful back in their name.... as a sign they finally get it!!!
To be Ungrateful is to be already dead...
Thanks a bunch NakGuy
Subject: Thanks for the music...
Subject: Yeah- this is the band
The way it's supposed to be, without any of that Allman's vibe mixed-in. That sound doesn't belong in Grateful Dead music in my opinion.
All I can say is that it's about freakin' time guys!
Now if only they would just do more shows and let Kadlecik sing *all* of the Jerry parts...
Nice recording too Nakguy- way to go!
Subject: Great sound
Subject: This band is just amazing.
