  5. 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.
  6. Well said. I kind of forgot about stuff like that. He did move around a lot at times. Band was always on it.
  7. You're right about which album tour it was. Shades was released in July 91, and the show was in the November. One set was electric, and the other acoustic. The acoustic set had tracks from Shades and Seven Turns. Also Jeff came out for Apolitical Blues according to setlist.fm and Feat-base says the same. Though neither mention Dickie and Warren, but I swear they came out during Dixie Chicken. I swore Jeff played on that too though. Perhaps my memory isn't serving me right after-all. [edit to add] Jeff and Warren played on Dixie Chicken according to the comment from 2002 at the bottom of page on the show here: https://www.allmanbrothersband.com/11&year=1991
  8. Saw Jeff many times, always blew me away. One time at Maple Leaf Gardens - Allman Brothers (1990 or 91 - Seven Turns tour) with Little Feat opening. Jeff came out with Dickie and Warren (I believe) and played with Little Feat for their encore. Dixie Chicken if my memory serves me right. So much guitar awesomeness. I remember seeing Alvin Youngblood Hart at the Horseshoe, and after his first set I turned to go to the bar and walked right into Jeff - literally, face first into his chest. He was a lot bigger of a guy then I would have guessed. Got to chat it up with him and his wife, bought them a beer and we talked about blues music for most of the set break. Amazing talent, and really nice guy that's for sure. Thanks for the heads up on the book, looks like a good read.

  10. I have a lot of rehearsals/outtakes from 'Desire' and that era, but I don't think I have this version. Can't wait for the boxset.

  12. I'd imagine so. I just shared the first article I saw on my feed mentioning cancellation.

    A short but cool clip/cover. Doesn't feel like seven years since he passed. Opening of the PBS show "Great Drives" .
  17. I'm far more bothered by non stop talkers, and cologne/perfume at shows to be honest. Though, I'm also usually too into the show to worry about taking pics, or what other people are doing around me (except non-stop talking). But, if I was a entertainer on stage all the time, and doing 100+ shows a year, I'm sure I'd be sick of seeing it too, so I get his point. Personally, I turn my phone off pretty much anytime I'm in a small or crowded public place, like a bus, a store I'll be more than 5 minutes in, hospital, venue or even a corner bar. The most interesting thing for me about all this is, it's the first time in two years he addressed the audience.
