It is the anniversary of 05-08-77

Recommended Posts

They were as tight as they got with 2 drummers but for my tastes, I always preferred the solo Billy years. 77 was a very strong year for Jerry, Phil and Bobby. Having said that, said trio were the band once one looks back at it with a discernible ear, minus the Pigpen driven years.

The Dead evolved throughout their career but 1977 was a water fallen crest-mark even I wont argue. Guaranteed it would have been a year I would have bitched about had I gone through it while seeing live shows. "What is this bullshit? Where did the exploration go?"

You are correct sir and your prompt to explain what that quote means is required .....thank you DB2.0 once again for pointing out that my intended messages either get lost or misconstruedly misunderstood.........

The Grateful Dead hit their highest of heights, from my perspective, prior to their hiatus at the end of 1974. "water fallen" in the above context refers to them as slowly dripping downwards, like a waterfall, while "crestmark" points to them having still maintained a peak that had been developed a few years prior. Having said that, any Deadhead will give you their opinion on when all of that happened. Luckily for us fans, they kept having some amazing shows/tours after that point. 

I could have simply wrote "it was the beginning of the end" but that wouldn't be accurate to how I feel while also sounding too Simple.

For me, The Grateful Dead hit those heights at a few different times through-out the years. Different line-ups, new tech, shifting social attitudes, drug addiction etc playing part in the evolution reaching those heights, for better and/or for worse. Forced to chose my favourite era I'd go with 69-72. Choosing a single point in time or even single year is impossible for me.

I love that time period, although my era would start in '68-'72, mainly because I've heard some great raw bluesy stuff from '68 that's right up my alley.

I am a MASSIVE fan of this version. Always have been, always will be. I was blown the fuck away the first time I got to see it on the Trucking Up To Buffalo dvd because I had already been sold on Maxell XLii's I owned. Killer version.

From one Buffalo to another, here is the latest All The Years. My 2nd show and Davey Boy 2.0's 1st. We were starting to heavily peak at this point. 

"Can you imagine wearing jeans right now?"

Possibly the line of the day but it is the only one I remember so maybe it was ✌️

You know what really grinds my gears?
 

When this lumberjack mother fucker who would probably be happier in the woods shooting bears, or fishing in some secluded northern Quebec cabin, decides that he isnt going to go off with an insanely hate-fueled rant about his ex or whatever it is he is singing about. Does anyone else remember feelings? Where the fuck did they go and why cant I listen to and watch Brent Mydland piss all over whoever or whatever he wants to piss on? Is this the reason why we have yet to see the infamous piss tapes via the orange buffoon from hell? WTF?

Get your shit together people. Brent Mydland is supposed to show and tell everyone his emotions like it is Kindergarten on steroids. Surely we can see, a little bit, but where is the rest of the story? Is he gas lighting anyone who chooses to watch that video? I fuckingly hope not or else I am going to start calling him on his cheezewhiz filled keyboard sounds. What are you doing bahd? Do you really think some of that shit hits? I gots a speedball on my Floridian property waiting for you if that is the case. We were at the show and he purposely took away the one thing that would take away the pain.

Brent shook his head at the end to signal the rest of the band he wasnt willing to take shit to the next level with pure evil because he got fucked around and then he died 10 days later which I had to find out from a gaggle of women we hung out with back in the day. Sitting around a backyard pool drinking beers and smoking hash. Welcome to the party bitch.

And that is what really grinds my gears.

I love the rant, even though I don't understand any of it!!

It used to bother me when bands covered this song because it 'feels' off limits to me, along with another handful I am sure I will point out in due time. 

Having said that, I am biased because it is a big song that happened in my life
