This is Dicks Picks 17

Dick's Picks should have been choice cuts from all 6 shows.The band was very tight in this show.

That Would Be Something-1st of 16 times played, never heard of it.
-Perrinswolf (06/04/2007)

its a beatles tune perrinswolf, and lyrically VERY simple as its just one repetitive line. kind of a nice segue tune for the dead, but thats about it. just my .02

I loved That Would Be Something...only played a few times....listen to the 2nd night in Birmingham in show they did that year....95 was a disaster yes....but this is the one gem from that year....check out the Truckin'>That Would Be Somethin'>UJB in that nights 2nd set...that will get your toes tappin' homeboy!

was relistening to this recently and don't know how it was released as a DP...The China Doll, as much as I try to love it, is the most horrible trainwreck...However, the subsequent Throwin' Stones is an all-time version, imho, complete with Phil bombs
-billy munster (10/02/2010)

That Would Be Something is a Paul McCartney solo song off of his first album. It was written and recorded while the Beatles were still together, but no other Beatles were involved in the production of the song.
-jpsanta (03/24/2011)

Gotta agree with Mr. Munster. Don't know why this one was picked from this run. the previous four shows were far more energetic and tight then this one. There were some good moments and it was the first That would be something, but other then that, it was pretty much an ok show. the 21st was far better imo and the night prior to this hd a great set 2. guess Latvala saw something in this show, gonna have to give it a listen again and figure out what.
-Murphy (08/14/2014)

Have to concur with everyone here re: this show - first set is framed by a pretty nice H>S>F and MNS, and the recording for the DP release does sound *lovely*, but the band is just so blah in the middle it really makes me wonder what Dick was thinking - and in general I really do admire the man's taste...

Second set is extremely strong from Victim all the way down through all that Paul McCartney - this big hour or so of music must have been behind this one being selected, because everything that follows the Playin' reprise, save NFA, really does have some cringe-inducing moments.

I'm partial to 9/22 myself; agreed that they should have compiled a Boston best of, or something...

I think this concert was chosen because it is the only version of "That Would be Something" with Bruce Hornsby in the band. That makes this show more unique than others.

Frankly, there are soundboards of every one of these shows on Archives, so i think I'll let those unfamiliar or only casual listeners dig on the official releases. I'll stick with the Archives, because let's face it...
it'll take the dead family 100 years to officially release every great show they ever played.
