GD Portland 7/25/72

Man, that interlude in The Other One on 7/25/72 is the bee's knees. Jim Powell's analysis (at Deadlists) just refers to it as "mystery theme".

LIA: "the Allmans-like Jam in the Other One of 7/25/72 ... sounds so composed it's hard to believe they only did it once."

It sounded a little Jeffersonian, a little Younbloodsish, a little this and a little that, to me. Discuss.


  1. Nine days before was that Dillon Stadium show where the Dead jammed with Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley and Jai Johanny Johanson without Phil Hmmm. I believe The Other Ones from 1972 desire more attention and study like the Dark Stars get.

  2. My first blog post was on this jam:

  3. the whole first part, from about 3:00, seems like a de-evolution of 'the other one', like 'dark star' would be de-evolved after the first verse in these years. at 15:25 there is a hint of 'gdtrfb' and then 'spanish jam'. then, i am hearing hints of 'stella blue' and then 'althea' towards the end of that, then at 19:30, jerry signals that it is time to back to 'the other one'.

    p.s. you forgot to mention the phil solo starting at about 21:45. :-)
