The Grateful Dead are in so-many-ways displaying, showing & flat-out Proving! That they truly cannot be' outgunned' in any-way, and by any Band! When it comes to the specific Blues-Driven & Heavy!Ballpark - which, truly became theirs -- and their Live " Identity " overall during this Incredible Rock & Roll Era! Though there a lot of different theories & opinions on which' specific-year' Pigpen! - it would be darn-hard to lean away from 1970 in any way, when it comes down to it.
Was is'68,'69,'70,'71... I don't know & sure can't say for certain myself - but, it's certainly safe to say that 1970 lays' Dead' smack! In the' middle' of this ultimately correct-answer' free' conversation. But, I sure can tell you that'70 G.
Shows like this drive me right to the brink. And, wow - I mean just match this notion with the fact that Garcia was clearly-feeling a' freshness' & volume-esque " clarity " right-in this period when he was slowly but surely making the decision to switch over from Gibson's to Fender Strat's. Some play both, and some settle one way or the other over time - but, let me just put it like this...
What Guitar's are generally slung over the Rolling Stones shoulders after say 25, 30, 40, or even... Jerry was simply moving away from the desire for heavier' raunch' from the Guitar guts itself, and was becoming a fanatic for clarity-of-tone, and like many do eventually realize - if you do want the raunch, graininess, boost, or just the sheer-heat...
You can get it in a much more manageable-form from your pedals. And, just think here for a second - as who else really felt that way?Well, one of them is called American Beauty! " - and, the other one is called " Workingman's Dead!! Right-here you've got 1969! Right before your eyes - at the Fillmore East! - and how do you actually choose to go out & close-out " The 1st " Grateful Dead Show of 1970??
