A cache of [Kenneth] Siegel’s photographs from the ’70s, which included these images of the the “S.N.L.” cast and the others taken in Times Square, were given to the New-York Historical Society in 2008. Tom Schiller, who produced short films and wrote for “S.N.L.,” says that after each week’s show was finished, everyone headed downtown to One Fifth Avenue (now Otto) for an afterparty — not, usually, to Greek joints. “It’s rare to see them all lined up like that,” Schiller says. “It’s weird and wonderful.” (source)

Robin used to keep chickens in his backyard, and pigeons on the roof of his Park Slope, Brooklyn, brownstone. The chickens for eggs, the pigeons for sport. 
He isn’t allowed either anymore. “
“When the new people started moving into this neighborhood, buying up the buildings, they started demanding changes. They got rid of the chickens first. Then they complained about the pigeons. I was the last guy to be able to keep them. These new folks love their animals and spend crazy amounts on them, as long as it’s cats and dogs.”

This Sunday we listen to the day appropriate Greatest Story Ever Told from the October 17, 1972 show at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, MO.

The dead played three shows on this run as you can see in the concert poster in the artwork. Each show was $4.50. Compare that to the close to $100 Phil Lesh now charges and that my friends is inflation!

Greatest Story has its usual 1972 gnarliness which I like. The song lyrics are written by Robert Hunter and the music is by Weir and Mickey Hart. Before it had this name it was referred to as the “pump song”

The show was pretty classic 1972 and unlike later years there really were no typical first set and second set songs. This one played more like a greatest hits show.

1: Promised, Bird Song, El Paso, Sugaree, Me & My Uncle, Tennessee Jed, Big River, China Cat> I Know You Rider, B. T. Wind, Deal, Cumberland, Playin’, Casey Jones

2: Greatest, Don’t Ease, Mexicali, Black Peter, Bobby McGee, Bertha, Jack Straw, FOTD, BIODTL, Ramble On, Half Step> Sugar Magnolia> NFA> GDTRFB> NFA

E1: Uncle John E2: Johnny B. Goode

enjoy your sunday!

"Gideon come in with his eyes on the floor. Says, “you ain’t got a hinge, you can’t close the door”. Moses stood up a full six foot ten, said “you can’t close the door when the wall’s caved in”. I asked him for water he poured me some wine. We finished the bottle then broke into mine. You get what you come for, you’re ready to go and it’s one in ten thousand done come for the show.”
