Wasn't this Welnick's first show?

This was my 24th birthday show and Welnick's first. Pretty hot show with five great first set Jerry tunes.

Wasn't there, on the tapes this is the best China->Rider transition I have EVER heard.

First show without brent. Nary a dry eye in the house during knockin.


Begining of the Casio keyboard era

What was welnick and bralove thinking with some of those keyboard tones early on vince smoothed out somewhat over time he clearly loved the material i still think the band rushed just to get a live body out on the road vince r.i.p.

Did he really play a Casio keyboard??? I know he had some cheesy sounds but jeez...I will admit, I am not a big Vince fan, but some shows he did pretty good. Unfortunately for Vince, he will go down in Grateful Dead history with an importance somewhere along the lines with the black chicks from the Jerry Garcia Band.

I wasn't much of a vince fan but don't put him down. I attended this show and it was ok for the era and loss factor. I think it unfair to say vince will go down the same as the "black chicks" from JGB. there should be no bad words for either. Those women were professional and outstanding. The sound Jery was going for and his interests at the time were exceptional to none. All be it he had his problems but remember he was a musician and did some pretty cool stuff during thast stage of his career, life, vocation, enjoyment. Remember his talent is his and we enjoyed and still do during his choice of direction. No disrepect to the anyone's opinions this is just mine. Peace out and enjoy your era as recorded in time.

@Anonymous "beginning of the Casio keyboard era." HILARIOUS! Vince had some skills, but he spent too much time playing a $100 Casio keyboard that used horrible samples of things like "fiddle" and "saxophone." There was nothing worse than hearing Jerry rip into a potentially killer version of Jack-a-Roe, only to have his guitar overpowered by godawful Casio fiddle sounds. See View from the Vault II for an example of this.

"Vince, he will go down in Grateful Dead history with an importance somewhere along the lines with the black chicks from the Jerry Garcia Band"

JGB has nothing to do with Grateful Dead and for the record, Gloria Jones, DeeDee Dickerson, and Jacklyn LaBranch added quite a bit to Jerry's sound...he kept them around in some combination for 14 years or so.

OTOH, Vince is certainly the least talented of the keyboardists. So we agree there...

Saw both these and they were.......ok, Philly however was better, much better.

Vince, overall, is underrated! It took time for him to find his groove, sure, but he added a lot of harmonies and energy. Listen to "Days Between". The boys could not have played anything like that before Vince.
-Mark (11/24/2014)

Vince Welnick SUCKED. In every capacity.
The Tubes were a Joke. Worst decision the Dead ever made. That includes rehiring Mickey. Don't fucking get me started on Mickey. Before anybody try's too defend either one of them, just isolate the tracks and open your ears. The tapes don't lie.

You think Mickey Hart sucked Hmmm what makes you say that? Vince did suck.

Be grateful, then die...

I know the comment is 11 years old but I come to this place to see what's in store on Sirius TIGDH and read that really shitty comment about the ladies from JGB. Very disappointing on a GD site even for 2010. He couldn't have made the same point and referred to them as the backup singers without involving race AND gender? I hope that person has evolved.
-Anonymous (09/07/2021)

... dont' you wish the band still existed, regardless of who is in .... smile, smile, smile
-Anonymous (09/08/2021)

Isolate the tracks? You got the multitrack masters there, Mark?
