hhoxssfj.buzz/kagu-fallout-nuevo-vegas.php And though none of the '90 Europe tour with Bruce and Vince has been released, there were a number of excellent shows that have been widely traded. That was also the only Dead tour of Europe that had a large number of Americans from the U. But fall '81? Not so much. The fall tour was actually the Dead's second trek across the pond in In late April, they bopped over for five shows—four at the intimate Rainbow Theatre in London where their '72 tour was supposed to start, but didn't , and the last an appearance on the popular TV show Rockpalast which was shown in large parts of Europe at the Grugahalle in Essen, Germany.
The Essen stop was the reason the April tour happened at all—it was a de facto promo stop for the band, to lay the groundwork and build excitement for a larger tour of Europe in October ' Bootleg copies of the Rockpalast show have been in circulation for many years, but unfortunately it has not found its way to a formal release—despite the fact that DVD purveyors Eagle Vision have been putting out excellent historic Rockpalast shows Little Feat '77! This poster for the Dead's concert in Russelsheim used Dennis Larkins' artwork for the band's just-released Dead Set album.
So, over the past month, I listened to every show, all the way through, in order. I figured there must be a few gems in there, some under-the-radar shows that would have to be released some day. The good news is that musically this was a fantastic tour! The band played with tons of energy and imagination. I can honestly say there's not a true clunker show in the bunch, and a few would rate among the best shows of ' The bad news—and it's very bad news indeed—can be summed up in just four words: The soundboard tapes suck!
The problem surfaced in the SBD recording of the first show, from Edinburgh. Jerry, Brent, Mickey and Bill sound great, their parts completely clear. The vocals, too, are sharp, if mixed way too high. But wait a second, the Dead weren't a quartet in the fall of '81, were they? Because those four guys are all you can hear; Phil and Bob are missing from the mix!
OK, a few times you might notice a little thppp, thppp bass coming through on a quiet passage, and there are points where you can almost imagine that Bob is, if not onstage with the others, perhaps playing along in a room backstage or down the street. Talk about frustrating! Jerry could be and usually was shredding, but it doesn't sound whole. It doesn't feel right. Unfortunately, most of the tour tapes suffer from the same malaise to different degrees—not enough Bob and Phil.
Anytime either of them poke through decently for a song or two it's a revelation and you can fully grok how well the band is playing. But those stretches are rare and even at their best are not up to the mix standards we've come to expect from the Dead. Why did this happen? And why are some other tapes from '81 inexcusably Weir-lite?
If you listen to audience recordings of many of these shows as I did , the instruments and vocals are all audible and seem to be well balanced alas, Phil is rarely prominent enough for my taste on many audience tapes, but at least he's there. But for some reason, when the recordings were made by mixer Dan Healy, I presume? By the last couple of shows—Paris and Barcelona—things are considerably better sound-wise than the beginning of the tour, but still subpar in the grand scheme of Dead tapes.
The second of the two shows fell on Bob's 34th birthday and is an absolute must-hear. The rented guitars give the music a slightly different sound in places, but it's still Grateful Dead through and through. The two sets would fit neatly on two discs nudge, nudge. Now, I know I've devoted much of the verbiage above trashing the sound quality of the soundboard tapes, but I still thoroughly enjoyed listening to the shows, and you might, too.
Looking at the set lists, there isn't much to differentiate the Europe shows from most others in the ''82 period. But the playing is uniformly strong from the beginning of the tour to the end, and even songs you've heard a million times have life to them. Jerry is on fire and his voice still has some of that '70s sweetness, which dissipated more each year as the '80s progressed. Brent, too, was singing more than growling in those days, and I liked that he was still employing more synth textures than he did later. The drum solos are exciting and varied, often featuring mega-duels as well as softer passages dominated by the tar the legacy of Egypt ' After the Oops!
Where Were We? I've long wondered why I almost never hear anyone talk about the Dead's fall tour of Europe. Substance issues notwithstanding, Garcia played fantastically well all year. December 7, Poster for hastily arranged Amsterdam shows.

A kind-of tangent This is a little off topic, but this article reminds me of a story It's one of those reviews where upon finishing it, I realized I must hear this show. Ah, the thrill of the hunt. So I obtained a fair copy, and while it seemed excellent, I wasn't nearly as excited as the reviewer in DeadBase. Years later, thanks to the Archive, I heard this show how it's supposed to be heard- the clarity of the instruments, the separation- the deep bass we love. Now I'm able to really hear the excitement within the music.
A high quality source can make all the difference in the world. The Europe '81 tour may contain some of the finest music ever performed. But because it wasn't recorded to our standards of excellence, we are left to wonder what might have been I haven't bothered yet to check if any are out there, but wonder how well one would stand up in comparison. Perhaps, a little of the Phil Zone might be gained in the process, as well. That's pretty cool you listened to the whole Europe '81 tour.
Brings up a favorite topic of mine. If you could go back in time to see one show and only limit yourself to the Grateful Dead if you absolutely must Think about it. Wilfred T The two canceled shows were to be Frejus and Nancy, not Paris. As for the matrixing idea--I know next to nothing about what's involved in that, but it strikes me that the mix on the SBDs is SO unbalanced in most cases that they probably could not be successfully matrixed with aud recordings.
I'd like to be proven wrong, however. As I said, the later shows sound better, so maybe a couple of those could be salvaged A Canceled Who Tour? Or am I confusing that with some other sequence of events? I honestly don't know, Corry. There was the Dead's canceled '78 Europe tour that was supposed to happen after Egypt and the Dead borrowed some of The Who's equipment for Egypt But that's probably not what you're talking about I'm all confuzzled By far the most miles we ever drove for three shows. The first two, Lehigh University and Buffalo are in my top twenty shows I saw live. Thanks for the insight.
Thanks, Klausssmith! I'll definitely check those out. I've gotten so many good listening suggestions since I've been doing the blog.
Lost Continents? Just not enough following in those places? I know Jerry was supposed to go to Japan with his artwork, but that didn't pan out. Anyone know definitively? The bus came by Thanks for looking across the pond Blair. It is well known in London that you wait hours for a bus, and then six arrrive at once. So it was with the Dead. In the years after 74 we had the depressing disappointments of the cancellations in 76 and The suddenly , the Dead' play two four night stands in London in the same year and at last I get see them several times.
By the way the Spring shows were in late March not late April. It all blurs into one now, but what a time we had. So much was new to us, we were wide eyed and amazed. They were somehow a more compact and organised outfit than then one we knew from old records and tapes But more funky and consistent maybe. Who cares, the Dead were all over London.

One of my favorite 2d sets of the 80s. More About Europe '81 and The Who I looked into my earlier recollection that the '81 tour had something to do with a canceled Who tour, for which the Grateful Dead took their place at the last second.
The source for my memory seems to be Rock Scully's autobiography. So it's the usual thing--some Who cancellations may have been a piece of the puzzle, but how big a piece? Since the Dead had played with the Who in March '81, they would have been in contact with Who management, so Rock's story isn't so farfetched. Even his co-writer, David Dalton, told me years ago that the anecdote in the book about finding the giant rock of cocaine on display in the German museum wasn't in 72 as stated in the book, but 74, and as I recall, might not have even involved Mountain Girl.
In other words, dramatic liberties were taken. I thought it was interesting that Pete Townshend's recent autobiography mentions the Grateful Dead just once the 76 stadium shows , in passing. No mention of Garcia, however, and nothing about the '81 Essen appearance Vocals are generally VERY loud in this case as vocals would be completely non-existent without amplification.
Anything that can be heard well in the room using only the on-stage amps requires little to no 'boosting' in the PA, so very little of it will be heard on the tapes. Anything not easily heard in the room requires anywhere from some to a LOT of amplification, so it will be much louder on the tapes. The reason Dead sbd tapes are so damn good generally is the fact that they spent the time and money to do split feeds even when they were not making a live album.
These signals can be made louder or softer without affecting the sound in the room so a very nice mix can be constructed at the point just before it goes down on tape. This is also why there are mix problems in the first song or two on some sbd tapes. We just all oughtta be thankful that they spent the time and money on the personnel, tapes and devices it took to capture all these incredible gigs. The fact that they did it, and did it consistently and in such high quality over so many years, never ceases to amaze.
Thanks once again guys. I used to regularly use that show as a primer for newbies. Then you will connect globally, you will have greater ideas and see the world that is full of opportunities, where openness is key. The Royal Society of Chemistry wants to help every researcher in the world get a better understanding of our publishing process. We wanted to unlock the door to publishing for Brazilian researchers: the strategy involves me, Dr.
We named it Science Connect, because more than just publishing numbers and volume, we want people to engage across their community and internationally.
We had professors, post-docs, MSc and PhD students all present. We had the support of Prof. Vanessa Boralli and we were happy that the audience was really involved and talkative throughout. Teresina is located in the far Northeast, and having someone from abroad garnered attention from the locals, who are warm and highly curious about anything. The Serra da Capivara National Park nearby is quite famous for its prehistoric rock paintings which have inspired the local art craft. The weather is hot and humid, and we could feel how proud the locals are of their home, histories and of course the lunch break.
By lunchtime it was making total sense why most people stop anything they are doing between 12 and 2 pm, in order to get away from the heat.
This region is full of soya farms, making the region very attractive for work opportunities. Jarem Garcia from the Chemistry department put together a nice mix of students and professors to mingle with us and one another. The workshop was filled with opportunities for attendees to talk about their work and gain presenting experience to improve their oral communication skills. They also trained, in a hands-on mode, in identifying a good abstract and title and to improve and optimize their own, and how important is to formulate a cover letter to call attention to your work.
Towards the end of the day, posters were discussed in a more informal way, especially to explore how keeping it simple is typically better; attendees also had the opportunity to self-critique and constructively critique peers. Communicating science through writing, talking, and displaying while increasing personal impact have to be straightforward and thoughtful. Preparation is essential, training is important and persisting is even more crucial. With these keys, we are sure to be rewarded for our hard work; even if the voyage to be taken will be very long, we are willing to pay the price as we did, covering more than 6, km, not only for science but also the joys of cheese balls, geology signs and churrasco that come with the journey!
Brazil is a country made up of states that are sometime more like individual countries. Bahia state, Salvador city, has a different atmosphere, and being away from the usual southwest area gives the science community different opportunities for interaction. It was a big opportunity for us to keep the award alive.
With this encouragement, we were able to offer four prizes, two each for young UK and Brazilian researchers, following early career request selection criteria. The BMOS organization made a huge celebration for that, and we had a whole slot in the event to talk about the importance of UK collaborations, the importance of internationalization and exposition of early career researchers.
One of the criteria for the selection was a collaboration statement between UK and Brazil researchers. We were able to show the Year launching video celebrating UK-Brazil collaboration efforts through the years. The video clearly highlights that collaborations truly make better science. The selected awardees received a certificate from Prof Jonathan Clayden beforehand, and had a slot to talk about their current research work.
Andrew L. We look forward to more opportunities to bring together researchers from diverse, international backgrounds and highlight the high quality research in Latin America to the world! Hosted by founding Editorial Board Chair Professor Nathan Lewis at Caltech, it was a wonderful opportunity to connect with the community, celebrate Prof. Lewis opened the day with a forward-looking talk, highlighting potential opportunities and challenges he hopes the community can address in the next decade and beyond to build on the immense progress of the field.

Interdisciplinary developments from materials in extreme environments to economic considerations for energy storage to alternative fuels could mean progress towards long-term sustainability. Current and founding Editorial Board members shared their significant advances throughout the years relating to artificial photosynthesis, PV and solar fuels, water oxidation and hydrogen production, and catalyst synthesis. Opportunities to connect with the community throughout the symposium Panel discussion with former and current Editorial Board members Profs.
The closing panel brought together all former and current Board members to integrate the topics throughout the day and answer questions from attendees. Speakers advised authors interested in publishing articles in EES to approach important problems for the community in a novel and impactful way and to compellingly express their findings to a broad audience. They identified additional opportunities for the field, including robustness and survivability of systems, fundamentally understanding processes to enable new breakthroughs, and considering issues that might arise at the systems level.
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us as we loved meeting everyone! As speakers continue their research along their interdisciplinary topics, many contributions will appear EES in the form of articles, Perspectives, and an Editorial. Also keep an eye out for an updated scope on the EES journal website to incorporate major topics from the Editorial Board meeting and symposium. We hope that you continue advancing new directions in your area of interest and that you submit your high-quality work to EES online.
These concentrated activities coincide with the Northern hemisphere summer break, making it possible for international speakers to come over and bring the right international flavor. Several engaged RSC authors and editors came and we were able to foster future collaborations. For the RSC, we are happy that the local community now easily recognizes our journals and we can show our commitment to increasing the submission and publication of high-quality work from the region.
The event was included on the Year calendar web site. Above is a photo of the main networking event during the meeting, which brought together Brazilians and international researchers. The RSC offered several poster prizes on behalf of our sustainability and energy journals, and wish to take the opportunity here to congratulate the winners: Adriano H. ICMM is a joint community gathering that brings together chemists and physicists, together with biologists and materials scientists for deep and focused discussions on different topics in the field of molecule-based magnets, including metal organic frameworks, modelling and theory of electronic structure, magneto-chiral and frustrated systems, bio-magnetic phenomena, and magneto-optic and magneto-caloric nanomaterials.
RSC offered poster prizes and we wish to take the opportunity here to congratulate the winners. Jonathan J. What an honor for all of us. ENQA was something else! With more than attendees, the meeting was a celebration of their achievements and the internationalization that is clear. Prof Dion Dionysiou from the University of Cincinnati, an engaged author and Editor of the new Chemistry in the Environment books series , was also present to give some tips.
Tayane A. Braz Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. This time the event went to Fortaleza, the Brazilian capital closest to Europe that is also easy to reach from North America.
As a final message, we would like to encourage the Brazilian community to continue its engagement with the RSC. There are many ways to engage with us, such as using social media to participate in online discussion forums and promote events, by tagging our twitter account RoySocChem to start a conversation with us, and taking advantage of relevant hashtags; researchers can explore our grants opportunities , dig into our events page, explore and read our portfolio of journals , magazines ChemistryWorld and Education-in-Chemistry and databases , and approaching us with ideas.
We understand that the success of our community depends on our ability to encourage and nurture the talent of the best people, regardless of who they are or their background. With titles spanning the breadth of the chemical sciences for a variety of audiences, from popular science books to textbooks to professional reference books, the books program continues to thrive thanks to contributions from our international community. The high-quality content of our books enables us to fully support learners and contribute to the development of the next generation of professional chemists.
Please join us in celebrating 50 years of books, made possible by our outstanding authors, and read on to learn more about two who recently finished their second book with us. Professor Walsh and Professor Tang are happy to share their new book with the world, and gave us some insights into their motivations and strategies for writing it, and explain what makes this such a fascinating and timely topic. He has extensive academic leadership and biotechnology industry experience and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society.
In , he received the Welch Award in Chemistry for his pioneering work in biological chemistry along with co-recipient JoAnne Stubbe. He has received numerous accolades, including the Arthur C. Over many decades, scientists discovered thirteen essential molecules that humans lost the capacity to make as they evolved from primordial organisms.
These thirteen vitamins are crucial for metabolism, and this book chemocentrically analyzes the mode of action of each one of them to tell a compelling tale of the challenges that every human cell faces. It provides a thorough view on the key small molecules of life, the human vitamins and their active coenzyme forms. The two professors first met while Tang was a postdoc with Chaitan Khosla. I started collaborating with Chris as an independent PI in We worked on the biosynthesis of fungal indole alkaloids and nonribosomal peptides.
Now with two full textbooks completed in only two years, it is evident that these authors work very well together. They explained that balancing the workload was key to making such speedy progress. A book often requires a great deal of dedication, and Professor Walsh explained how he works through the writing process to assemble the final product.
I pause when a major section or chapter is finished and only when I know how to start the next topic. I write to the exclusion of almost every other activity and can write a chapter a week with embedded artwork in first draft. The first draft goes to my coauthor Prof Tang for additions, omissions, corrections, deletions, and most importantly setting the tone and aesthetics of each chapter.
Once committed and with clear intentions in mind, they were able to finish with impressive haste, but it took a bit more time and a great deal of thought to get to the point where they could really take off. Both authors have previous experience with writing books, which helped make it easier to develop an idea and a plan. The two co-authors formulated their ideas and decided what they wanted to cover and how to approach it.
