A Season in Hell
A Season in Hell #84: Pigpen Offers Advice
April 16, 2012 @ 8:00pm
Week 2/8 in my celebration of the Grateful Dead's epic Europe 72 tour. It's been 40 years, and these shows really do stand the test of time.
Tonight I'm playing selections from 04/14/72, Tivoli Concert Hall, Copenhagen, Denmark, and 04/16/72, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark.
It was pretty hard to decide what to play tonight. As of this writing I'm still not totally certain what I'm going to throw on. At first I was totally prepared to play the Good Lovin' jam from 04/14/72. But then I listened to the Truckin' jam from 04/16 and I threw everything out of the window. Now I'm thinking of playing Mr. Charlie and Big Boss Man from the 14th, and the Truckin' jam from the 16th. WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!?
I know, I could play them both, but I really don't want my entire show to be the Dead. As much as I love them, I'm also into sharing new music with you all, and I've found some wonderful new tunes to share.
No worries. I'll have it all figured out by showtime. I hope...er, I think. Let me know what you think.
Next week selections from 04/17/72 and 04/21/72.
