Lil Blu Cockrel



Cosmic Charlie
April 5, 1969
Avalon Ballroom

It's a bit uneven vocally, musically it's slow and sultry.
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
March 28, 1969
Student Center

A ripping opener, Pigpen is all in, wonderful show, good quality tape but some unfortunate cuts.
Turn On Your Love Light
April 21, 1969
The Ark

You know the drill by now; DS > SS > 11 > LL; gotta catch 'em all
Morning Dew
April 21, 1969
The Ark

So, not only is this a wonderful Dew, the Jerry banter after this and before beginning a transcendent Cryptical Suite is a hoot as well.
St. Stephen
April 22, 1969
The Ark

Beggars belief this hasn't be submitted already.


Viola Lee Blues
Jan. 27, 1967
Avalon Ballroom

That's an interesting comment psychranger. If you're here, thank Jim Roberts!
Playin' In The Band
May 3, 1972
Olympia Theater

This one has it all.
Death Don't Have No Mercy
Feb. 28, 1969
Fillmore West

Out of a lysergic 11, Jerry delivers a most soul-felt Death Don't. I'm not crying, you're crying.
The Eleven
Feb. 28, 1969
Fillmore West

The band is maybe a little 'loose' at the beginning of this 11 but MAN they really bring it home by the end. Followed by an exceptional Death Don't. Deep dives, people!
Death Don't Have No Mercy
Feb. 22, 1969
Dream Bowl

Was busy re-exploring this show and the preceding Crytical's segue into this most wonderful DDHNM is amazing, not to be missed. As for this, vastly underrated, under appreciated gem, by all means.
