Isolated Bobby feed - 8/19/89

Postby NSP » Tue Nov 21, 2017 6:56 am

Just happen to stumble upon this isolated Bobby feed from an '89 Greek show on Archive.

A pretty cool listen for anyone wanting to zero in on some Weir technique.

Fascinating. I am a big fan of Bobby and his playing but it kind of sounds like total hell by itself. Almost a "Bobby shreds" parody at times, in that it's surprisingly rough/sloppy in spots. It does reveal some interesting details, especially with respect to the times he would lay out, which were more than I thought. One cool detail is the palm muting during the China Cat riff about the third or fourth time through. Lots to dissect here, and lots of little stuff to steal, but overall, I'd say my impression verges on "ouch!" It's clear to me that Brent covered up quite a few of Bobby's sins.

I was wondering along similar lines but maybe, it was more along the lines of 'Well, Brent is playing so much, what the fuck am I going to do now?' and not really giving a fuck?

There are some track isolations on the GD Movie DVD and I thought the same thing about multiple instruments. Not that they were necessarily bad, but individually they aren't always what you were expecting. A lot of space at times, and definitely quirky at times. As my buddy Steve says, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That feels doubly true for how these guys play together. The totality of their quirky, loose playing is what makes the overall sound so interesting.

Come on folks. Bobby wasn't playing with himself! He was playing with the Dead!
All's well that sounds well.
