Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Maybe This Video-Sharing Site Ain’t Got No Heart


The liberation of Vimeo continues: Shakedown opener from Soldier Field in ’91. Let’s play everyone’s favorite fun game: how many X’s in Garcia’s shirt size?


  1. What do I not know about Vimeo?

      It’s just bush league. Can’t embed videos properly, and the search function is useless. Plus, the name is stupid.

  2. Watching / listening on a laptop with headphones I couldn’t figure out what that godawful shrill buzzsaw sound was. Located it in the left channel and realized it was what Bobby thought to be a “good” guitar tone. Coupled with an amazing clam from Phil (coincidentaly right when the feed was on him) around 0:25 you can see why Jerry gave Mickey a “what the fuck, man?” look at 0:29.

  3. VimVimVimeo oh oh……..

  4. Vince sure loved that brass sound…

  5. Which keyboard player more closely resembles Larry Fine?

  6. “I love what Welnick does on this tune,” said nobody ever.

      I’m going to dispute that a little. Sure, this doesn’t displace the 12-30-78, 4-22-79 or 10-25-79 versions as potential-best-EVAR, but…
      I really like the Jerry MIDI here.
      I think he’s really enjoying what both keyboard players are laying down.
      I think that there’s as much Vince as Bruce.
      So, yeah, I enjoyed what Welnick does with his hands and his voice. YMMV.
