Morning Dew 8/6/71

Morning Dew 8/6/71

Postby jonarobb » Mon Jan 05, 2009 11:52 am

Took a train ride up the Hudson the other day and brought my iPod with me. Never get a chance lately to dig in and listen to stuff with headphones anymore. Maybe it was the schwag but all I know is the Morning Dew from 8/6/71 on DP 35 is explosive. The recording first of all is amazing. It's so full sounding for just the 5 of them. Pig plays some of his most tasteful organ playing.

But there is a snippet at around 2:35 where they do that cool Baroque sounding turn-around as Jerry sets up for the verse. It's probably the most expressive thing I've ever heard. Phil does this monster descending bass line to land back on the D and Jerry lays off for a bar and comes in with this subtle trilly thing before he sings.....like a hammer on-pull off. Almost like he had to get his head together after hearing Phil's line.

You gotta check it out.

OK, I am confused (a common occurrence). Dick's Picks 35 was 8/7/71. Did you mean a different Dick's Picks or did you mean 8/6? I went to that spot you mentioned in DP 35, and although it was really good, I couldn't quite figure out which Jerry riff you were referencing. Am grabbing 8/6 from shnflac right now, so I can listen to it later...

The stuff he is talking about is on disc 4 of Dick's Picks 35. May I add that a nice "companion" release to this is the Road Trip series of the Summer of '71 and includes 7-31-71, 8-23-71 and the bonus disc included more stuff from 7-31, 8-6 (including a soundboard of the infamous version of "Hard to Handle"), and rare prison stuff from 8-4-71. A simply fantastic release if you dig this era like I do.

Now that we're talking about it I think I know what's getting cranked up today!

Ok, I stand corrected. Sorry to have been misleading. My own notes on DP 35 when I ripped it to MP3 were incorrect. Wikipedia has this about the last disk:

Yeah, the lick I'm talking about is nothing more than a cool little trill that Jerry does as he misses the setup to sing a verse. Comes in a bar late after getting his head together. It sounds so good to me and it just made me think about how everyone's playing affected everybody else on stage.

Around 2:35, eh? I'll play that area again when I get off this freaking phone that I'm stuck on....
