Jam – 2011-05-03 – Carroll’s

Jerry 5-3-87

We seemed to get to Carroll’s early on this jam night as there was no traffic and no show at Terminal-5 so we got good spots and were set for a jam.  Being May 3 we decided to try another anniversary show, and this week’s tribute was to 1977 and the long Palladium show that happened 34 years ago.

We had an epic setlist to get through in 4 hours and we rushed through it a bit to achieve its completeness, but some how we finished the Uncle John’s Band encore as the clock turned 12.  It was quite an accomplishment for us.  It took a few songs to tune in the PA system but once we got it we sounded pretty good.

Scott was alert and consistent and it helped us stay steady and easy through out the night.  Lazy Lightning took a few leaps forward on this night.  Speaking of Lazy Lightning, this show we were playing was filled with many giant songs so it really was quite a big evening of music.  We moved Rich’s MP3 recorder to see if we could get  a sound out of it that wasn’t so over-loaded, so when the MP3s come out we shall see or hear.


In the end the MP3s sound good.

In the world, this is the week the U.S. hunted down and killed Osama Bin Laden, almost 10 years after  the 9-11 attacks.

    I just listened to Estimated, and in my estimation, the “vortex” mic placement yielded a great mix with excellent balance and separation, and little overmodulation, at least through my iPhone and Skullcandy buds. The music is equally crisp and well-played. Thanks Rich for the MP3s and thanks Larry for the play-by-play post. Between the two I feel like I was there. Oh wait….I was…

    I agree, the recordings are better than the previous mic placements used. It is much more open sounding.

    Really?! Mic placement has something to do with overall quality and mix of a recording?! That’s remarkable!!
    – is that sarcastic enough?

    Although set lists help us avoid wasting time, and this one was full of good tunes, we played 22 ten minute songs. I’d rather play 10 ten minute songs and 5 twenty minute songs. I think we either have to find such set lists, or take liberties with the lists to allow us to stretch out as we please, or not use lists at all. We are not DSO.

    While I share your affinity for the time/space continuum-bending eyes-rolled-back-in-head jam, and the fact that nostalgic songs that never made it out of the 60’s do nothing for me; you must understand that in the 20 years of Deadstein things have not stayed the same (no matter how hard we tried). Set lists, no set lists, round-robins, iShuffle, practicing the same Terez songs every week, 12 weeks without a repeat; this is just a phase. We should embrace it for what it is and enjoy it until the next boredom-buster comes along.
    …And you really can’t argue with 22 song nites.
