Here is a young NZ woman singing about the frustration of troubleshooting the V11 neutral (green) light and sidestand interlock.

Then she goes on to explain the existential joy of owning an Italian motorcycle.

At least I think that's what she is saying.

I am sure this is no surprise, I saw the Dead & Co last night in Dallas.   They played Texas sentimentals  like EL Paso, New Minglewood Blues, and Deep Ellum Blues.   But then John just tore it up on Sugaree with wild blues and did it again with Jack Straw.  After the break they did the best Shakedown Street I've ever heard and  the rest of the show was total jam out with Uncle John, St Steven and 11.  I haven't ordered the recording yet but I did get some photos from the camera I really hate (and sometimes like).

One of the guys on WG was able to get a vid of Sugaree (first set, before John changed shirts in my photos)

I am afraid I am going down the rabbit hole into Dead-nation now.  Perhaps it's an obsession or just a window into the past, both cultural and personal.  Most of the Dead Shows have been archived and many have been packaged into CDs and downloads by the keepers of the vault.  So as I fished around, I found D ick's Pick, Vol 19.  D ick Latvala was a Dead recording archivist who put out 36 CD sets.  Vol 19 was the very first Grateful Dead show that I attended back in 1973.  

The only vivid memory I had was some drunk Okie yelling "Truckin'" throughout the show.  Of course they never played it.  After hearing it, some of the memories have come back, the country sound, Bill was the single drummer and really rocks when he plays alone, the Godchauxs' and many more but songs and fewer jams, and Jerry.  It's the beginning of the "wall of sound" and the recording is surprisingly good for the time. 

So here is a link

There are several other shows I'd like to get, some are only available with a few songs in larger sets. Some might be poor recordings that were never released unless bootlegged.  In fact there are so many authorized commercial Grateful Dead recordings on the markets, most 2- 3 hours long, that members of the band have not listened to them all.

Fish around, you might find your own memories here.
