    eljr,
    I love that scene from clockwork Orange.
    When I was 19 I wanted to use that as a pickup line but I could never remember it. ( long time before the web)

    most recently I have been listening to 8-9-95. Ratdog at the Hampton Beach Casino the night of the day Jerry left us. Man, 21 years ago. I have a beautiful DSBD file set of this if anyone is interested. The emotion from Bobby during Blackbird is incredible.
    A little light reading.....

    An Elegy for Jerry by Robert Hunter

    Jerry, my friend,
    you’ve done it again,
    even in your silence...
    the familiar pressure
    comes to bear, demanding
    I pull words from the air
    with only this morning
    and part of the afternoon
    to compose an ode worthy
    of one so particular
    about every turn of phrase,
    demanding it hit home
    in a thousand ways
    before making it his own,
    and this I can’t do alone.
    Now that the singer is gone,
    where shall I go for the song?

    Without your melody and taste
    to lend an attitude of grace
    a lyric is an orphan thing,
    a hive with neither honey’s taste
    nor power to truly sting.

    What choice have I but to dare and
    call your muse who thought to rest
    out of the thin blue air
    that out of the field of shared time,
    a line or two might chance to shine —

    As ever when we called,
    in hope if not in words,
    the muse descends.

    How should she desert us now?
    Scars of battle on her brow,
    bedraggled feathers on her wings,
    and yet she sings, she sings!

    May she bear thee to thy rest,
    the ancient bower of flowers
    beyond the solitude of days,
    the tyranny of hours–
    the wreath of shining laurel lie
    upon your shaggy head
    bestowing power to play the lyre
    to legions of the dead

    If some part of that music
    is heard in deepest dream,
    or on some breeze of Summer
    a snatch of golden theme,
    we’ll know you live inside us
    with love that never parts
    our good old Jack O’Diamonds
    become the King of Hearts.

    I feel your silent laughter
    at sentiments so bold
    that dare to step across the line
    to tell what must be told,
    so I’ll just say I love you,
    which I never said before
    and let it go at that old friend
    the rest you may ignore.

    Notes:
    Here's another nice audience recording by the same crew that did the San Diego show on 01-07-1978. This one sounds a bit warmer than the San Diego show, and perhaps not quite as in-your-face. And like that recording, the deck was stopped between virtually every song. In this case, there are some nasty jump cuts between songs where no music is lost, but at least one song ("Brown Eyed Woman") is clipped at the beginning. It's hard to tell, but "Sunrise" might also be missing a little bit from the beginning. I inserted on little crossfade in track 7 of disc 2, because it was just too abrupt. There is also a cut/tape flip in track 9 of disc 2 at about 07:44.
    Otherwise, it's a nice companion to the soundboard that has circulated for quite a few years.

    a little cut on Sunrise would not be missed by my wife, she detests Donna Jean.
    just sayin'

    Donna and Bobby, for me. Like nails on a chalkboard.
    I'm a completist; otherwise, I'd edit it all down to Jerry tunes.

    Bob doesn't bother me very much, but Donna makes me want to stick icepicks in my ears. And I don't get it; the stuff she had sung backup on prior to joining the Dead was pretty good. What happened?

    I have imagined many times how good they'd have been if Donna was replaced by a true singer with a powerful voice.
