i'll never forget after a couple teases the actual supplication bust out in nyc 2011-03-12..they were just kind of sitting there hanging on the d minor for a while and i thought i heard it bubbling from the abyss of phil's rippling ocean and all of a sudden weir is all "dizzy ain't the word.." oh boy he did not just do that, yeah yeah he did. now if we can just get jk russo and chimenti to nail that intro to lazy do-do do-do do! do do-do-do! BAH BAH!!!, lazy lightning! hahaha CONEY ISLAND BABY!!! taking off for brooklyn in about 30 mins, see ya'll there!


I will say I enjoy the music more than the vocal cadence. unlike Estimated, which has a superior power and flow to it, LL (to me) sounds as if Bobby was not able to make the vocals fit the melody. I do appreciate what you say about the 7 beats lewie.

Have a grate time...

An LL Sup would be much more than novelty to me. I would lose my shit if they play it this weekend. GD 76 -78 is a favorite time for me BECAUSE of those killer LL Sups. I love the transition from LL to Supp I think it is trippy.

Lets save the LL>Supp for Saturday night if possible folks, not one of my faves...


Wait until you see this performed live, you'll be converted. It's a jam fest.


Ive seen it live my friend, not Furthur of course. Just not for me.

I've got to say I've never completely understood the intense excitement at seeing this brought back. It's a good song, I always liked it when I heard the Dead play it live. But it was never a tune that sent me into orbit. The jams with it were good, but not like a Playin or Estimated jam could be.




I can't recall how many times I saw them do LL>Supplication, but there is one stand out performance at Red Rocks in '83. 12 minutes of bliss, followed by Might As Well to close what was a pretty killer set. I like that it was a uptempo song with some incredible dynamics, and big open spaces for some fine Jerry licks, and in the first set where it could have been a second set pairing. It was also quite the work out for the drummers.

Well put. Yes, it is an interesting time signature. It's certainly another example of what made the Grateful Dead one of a kind. I always liked how Supplication concluded with such thunder. Everyone was firing on all cylinders. I think it would certainly be interesting to hear what Furthur could do with this.

yes man. LL is a musical masterpiece, I love the feel of the 7 time, def one of weirs more elaborate works. The jam between the two is really something else too. Like you said its very veryyyy elusive, mystical and you never know when it gonna strike. It will be a night to remember if it comes out, guaranteed!
