Is "Empty Pages" the Traffic song?


empty pages IS NOT the song of the same name as done by Traffic! I do not have any other info on this rarely played Pig tune.

All that was salvagable from this show is to be part of Dick's Picks 35.

The Legend of the Houseboat Tapes .... Late in the summer of 1971, just before Keith Godchaux began rehearsals with the Dead, Garcia handed him a big box of tapes and said, "Here, this is our most recent tour. Learn our music." It's doubtful he ever listened to them his ability to play Dead music was pretty much on the natch. In any case, he left the tapes on his parents' houseboat in Alameda, and there they stayed. For 35 years.
A month ago, his brother Brian and son Zion were cleaning out the houseboat, found the tapes, and gave them to Donna Jean, whose jaw dropped. One call to Lemieux later, and the Dead's long-lost missing tour from the summer of 1971 had resurfaced. Dick's Picks #35 will be four CDs: the complete San Diego (8/7/71) show, all that was salvageable of the 8/24 Chicago show, and an hour-plus from the Hollywood Bowl (8/6).

If Dick's pick's 35 is to be believed, than this set list is wrong. If you believe this list then, it seems that DP 35 includes more of the previous night...


Yes, its either that DP35 is right or this site is right because their saying that all of the 3rd disc is chicago, and the setlist does not match the night before in chicago either, the sons are simuliar, some of them but not all, and the order is different.

Empty Pages, GD Original, Lyrics & Music by Pigpen.

Cumberland is somewhere in this lost show, but a gooe "shoe" nevertheless...part of the "Lost 71 tapes". I say their tightest and best year overall.

The setlists do not match-up. Between this here setlist program, DP 35 & the archive, something is fishy. It does not match up with with either the 23rd or the 24th.

Love the "Brown-Eyed Women" from this show. Second performance, and it sounds much more like something from Workingman's Dead than something from '71.

The songs listed on DP35 as 8/24/71 would seem to actually be 8/23/71 with the exception of Empty Pages and Good Lovin which are from 8/24.

I appears that what is listed for 8/24/71 on Dicks Picks 35 is actually taken from both 8/23/71 and 8/24/71. Mostly from 8/23/71. See and like got it wrong from the Dicks Pick 35 listing.

This set list is all jacked up. Doesn't match either show or any show. Trying to figure it out will leave a smoking crater of your mind!
