That the Band carried from 12/11/69 into 12/12/69... The' Predecessor', if I may. In other words = not at all! This 6-Song rally, to the point where it sounds like the Music is Playing the Band!!! Moments of Magic that we all constantly live for.And, this just isn't any'69 Show either though I really would listen to any of them! But, this very special December'69 material released from that cherished Vault! Is from the Thelma Theatre - in Los Angeles, California... Straight from the Sunset Strip!!!
And, speaking for myself - I've been crazy about the live & electric Magic! That Dead delivered here - since back in 1994! I had only a small sliver of this'69 Winter Tour run at the Thelma Theater myself (a portion of the 12/12/69 Show, to be precise) - less than 45 minutes (the Uncle John > He Was A Friend Of Mine > Alligator > Drums > Alligator segment)... And, it's one I'll never forget - and why? Because we selected it for the 1st!Tape to get played in the car, on the way down south to San Francisco - in August 1995 - on the journey to Golden Gate Park, to show appreciation - and appropriately celebrate the life of Jerry Garcia. We needed to kick this road trip off in a way that showed the greatest respect possible - and, ultimately we decided that the'69 Thelma sound! Was indeed the' right' choice... So for me - when I think' Thelma'69', that's what I remember. That this run was finally selected for pro-release, as it's now been close to 25-Years since I found a little golden chunk of this one, and now...
A pristine-remastered version with some seriously generous additions. Wow, and just to think that this one was played right on the Strip! - and, in a small Rainbow, Whisky, Roxy type Club -- and, even a quite smaller & more intimate Venue too - from the crowd sounds on these CD's. I can't even believe how incredible this Late-'69 period in general!Right on the heels of Workingman's Dead!! - communication, tempos, and voices Garcia!! Are nothing short of remarkable. And, on this 12/11/69 Bonus Disc too - there is some Impressive!
Cat & mousing going on between Jerry & Phil that elevates into explosion!! Comparatively too, Dick's Picks 16, Dave's Picks 6... - I mean this is'69 Live Dead in it's rightful groove!But, this one being in such a small & intimate Venue & right on the Sunset Strip too! - it's that special... The whole time during these Shows, they must have been thinking to themselves... Damn, we've gotten pretty good! None of the Boys in the Band would ever say that of course, but instead - they just deliver it!
Right through the PA's!! Plus, though there is hard & heavy everywhere all throughout this Bonus Disc CD segment...It is amazing to think how much of an overall different' Vibe' that it delivers, in comparison to say - the Late-Feb / Early-March 1969 Fillmore West Shows. It's so very clear that these Boys are heading into the beautiful-music unknown - best described as the Workingman's Dead era!!! Just letting strings & tones resonate! - and letting subtle & full! The sound on this release is so incredibly rich - that it almost feels like your got a Dark Star > St. Stephen > Eleven being played right inside your living room! Add this one to your collection, and don't even think twice. The Dave's Picks 2014 Bonus Disc CD!!! - December 11, 1969 at Thelma Theatre in L.
