Unofficial 31 Days of Dead – 2012 Edition: Day 25

December 25

Lazy Lightning > Supplication
11/9/79 Buffalo Auditorium, Buffalo, NY

The very prolific reviewer on LMA who goes by the moniker ‘capn doubledose’ says this version of Lazy Lightning > Supplication is “easily one of the best ever done.”  A guy with a name like that would never steer you wrong about the Grateful Dead, right?  Alas, this highly charged version was left off Road Trips, Vol. 1, No. 1 (Fall ’79). Huh?

Jerry’s rapid runs over the rhythmic 7/7 time signature in Supplication sound like electrical sparks dancing up and down the neck of his guitar. The ending is simply explosive.  I’ll take a double dose, capn!

Jerry Christmas!

    The time signature is 7/8 or 7/4. The “bottom” number of a time signature indicates which kind of note gets one beat — almost exclusively 8th or quarter notes.
