Encore One More Saturday Night
Comments The complete show circulates (except Saturday Night) (1) Lesh: Quite a nice pipe whoever threw that up here, thank you. (2) Weir: We're experiencing another modern miracle of the technical age. That being the occasional glimpse of a working piano over here. But about every 15 seconds we get plunged back into the dark ages where modern physical and electrical postulates, etc. no longer apply. {pause} Ladies and gentlemen we've located the problem. Turn it up turn it up Keith so they can hear it {awful noise}. That's it. Tiny little electrical mice gnawing their way through the pickups you see. We got a big electronic cat after him. And we expect at any point now a swift and merciful end to their gnawing existence. You can while away the hours by turrnning to the guy next to you by hollering "Stand UP, Sit Down, Stand UP, Sit Down" until he gets the point. Whatever that is. (3) China Cat Sunflower [3:45] > Jam [3:53] > I Know You Rider (4) Weir: Hey hey, this next number's straight from the grooves of our next album upcoming whenever we get it finished. (5) 9 beats (6) Weir: We're gonna take a short break and fix the piano so that it really works and then we'll be back and we're gonna play for awhile. (7) Weir: You're going to have to enunciate more clearly. Alligator? Did you say Alligator? Everybody ready? Lesh: Yeah. Weir: I'd like to take the opportunity now to introduce Donna Jean here. Donna Jean: Thank You. Weir: She's gonna help us out with this next number and it goes something like this, 3,5,7,8,9,10. (8) Truckin'>Dark Star> Comes A Time Song Map: Truckin' [5:10] > Jam [5:37] > Truckin' Reprise [1:26] > Spacy transition [1:49] > Dark Star theme/jam [16:08] > First Verse [2:05] > Space Jam [10:18] > Comes A Time. (9) Weir: OK Folks we're gonna take another break and then we're gonna come back again. (10) Lesh: What What What What man What What What What What already what. Like the man says ya'll gonna have to enunciate more clearly. Or at least get together. We don't do that tune no more man. It done faded away in the mists of time. Besides if ya'll shut up we can tune up easier. Thank you. (11) Lesh: As you all might have figured out by now we can't do any Pigpen songs because Pigpen ain't here. The reason that Pigpen ain't here is because he's real sick and uh we know we can take all your good wishes home to him. He'll be back with us again next year as soon as the doctor tells him he can travel, concentrate, do all that heavy shit. (12) Garcia: It's another new tune here. We're gonna get to that other stuff a little later. (13) Weir: Thank you.
