Please note that the AUD source for 4/17 is different than the previous 2 nights. Still at the front drink rail and still an excellent recording.

d2t01 The AUD source was run extremely hot during “Terrapin Station” and may suffer very mild distortion. However, this is extremely watered down when mixed with the SBD. This is most likely undetectable.

D2 and D3 can be assembled seamlessly on longer media.

d3t01 SBD missing 0:01:41.067 crowd cheer btwn last song and “Donor Rap”. The AUD was trimmed to match and both sources were crossfaded to make this transitions as smooth as possible. This is most likely undetectable.

  1. With the recent announcement of the surviving members of the Grateful Dead coming together (sans Donna Jean and with Trey Anastasio filling in for Jerry) to celebrate their 50th anniversary I thought it would be fun to revisit this run where Trey sat in with Phil.

    I remember when this show was first announced and shortly after the shows getting the tapes (yep, actual cassette tapes – man that makes me feel old.) I never was much for Phish but I remember these shows being really exciting.

    This is one of those runs that I very distinctly remember receiving and listening too. All these years later and after thousands of shows have crossed my path I still remember listening to this run while driving all over NE Oklahoma for work.

    Truth is after I moved to collecting shows on CD I never bothered to upgrade this run and haven’t listened to them since. I’m interested to see how well it holds up.

  2. Thanks for this, Mat! I have never been a huge Dead fan, but recently, from hearing some of this live Lesh, I think I’m coming into the fold. šŸ™‚ looking forward to hearing this one.

    And, I know those attending the final shows in Chi-town will have a BLAST!

  3. You are welcome. I just started relistening to these this morning. Great sound, good performances. The only thing I’ve never loved about the Phil and Friends shows is that everything is a jam. I mean I love the jams but sometimes you want to catch you breath with a simple rendition of something and Phil just keeps going and going and going.

    But really its all pretty great.

    I hope you become a full fledged head. Man, there is hours and hours of incredible music to be discovered.

  4. Thanks for sharing this one. I “discovered” the Phish Spreadsheet this week while scrambling to complete arrangements and get money orders sent for Chicago tickets. The original Charlie Miller SBD versions of these shows are available there. Phil is just a monster, as Matt pointed out. Here’s to hoping this reunion is as joyous as sharing the good stuff!
