First Cryptical in almost 13 years!

no, they broke it out on the east coast first.

ahh, no they did not napolean..this is the first one :))

this was not the first in 13 years. regardless of what you *think* based on set lists errors.

i was at these shows, we all knew that is was going to be played cause the broke it out on the previous east coast tour.

Yes, this was when they broke out Cryptical. This was the 20th Anniversary run at the Greek.

this WAS the 1st, though i understand how strong (if incorrect) our memories can sometimes be.
despite a pedestrian setlist, 4-9-91 will always be remembered for me. it was SUCH a special scene and a special show. i SWORE they played "SOTM", and to this day i remember it clear as day.

....but it didnt happen.

....and "cryptical" wasnt debuted on the east coast a few nights before.
this was it.

strange how memory works huh?

it's kinda funny, i'm finally coming back to the boys; after Jerry died i turned away, i suppose it's been long enough. we were on the east coast and couldn't get to the Greek. when we heard they broke out cryptical we almost died. how could we miss it. waited until Merriweather.

The Cryptical was sweet. The Other One was straight in, hard and true. Phil dug into the opener in the old, sudden style, and Jerry even did the crazy instrumental break toward the end. The other thing I really liked at those shows was the Morning Dew second set opener on the first day. I really love how they used to open that song back in their heyday. It wasn't exactly the same, but it had a special something to it.

So damn hilarious some weasely east coasters trying to poach that! :) The rivalry itself is funny. They sure did do some crazy stuff back there, some might say the best of it all, but I think that was largely because they were so HUNGRY whereas in the west they were rather spoiled! Nice there's still amusement to be had from that scene after all this time!

That dynamic is still alive and kickin. I'm A NYC head and i always walk in hopin for that mind bender. Even phil calls us the most demanding audience on earth. I think we live up to it, grit and all. Happy listenin folks.

There is so muchb BS onlien it is mind boggling. They did not do Cryptical on the previous east Coast Tour. I saw over 30 shows in 1985, including most of their previous east coast tour, and these three, and every show through Ventura, and I can assure you - this is the first Cryptical since Waterbury, CT in Sept. of 1972. This was a great run, these plus the tour after were among the best shows I saw period.
