    I thought the Dead's 2-14-68 show was at the Carousel Ballroom.

    @DavidMJordan I don't know, i really liked the way they sang it live. It was different from their other songs, which is why this one has to be my all-time favorite next to Alligator.

    This is the season, of what... now...///

    "No more time to tell how
    this is the season of what
    Eight-sided whispering hallelujah hatrack
    The time of no returning with thought-jewels polished and gleaming
    Six proud walkers on the jingle bell rainbow
    The time past believing the child has relinquished the reign
    Five men writing with fingers of gold
    Now is the test of the boomerang
    Tossed in the night of redeeming"

    @NeoSquadillah It was at the Carousel Ballroom (later Fillmore West) in San Francisco.

    If you do a search for The Eleven at archive. org you will find recordings of almost every time The Dead played this great song.

    it's funny, i never connected the name and the fact that it's in 11/8
    such a prime song.

    Great version of a great song. The Eleven always makes me ponder why more musicians don't write songs in funky time signature (i.e. 11/4, or 7/4 a la Estimated Prophet, 5/4 a la Brubeck's Take 5). There's a distinctiveness and unique groove that comes from off-beat time.

    Thanks for posting.

    @sallymander57 Thanx for the tip sallymander57 Best wishes

    I'm an Eleven Head. I've downloaded or recorded every performance of it I could find.
    There's really not all that many since the original Dead only played it for about three years.
    I have 62 versions of it, longest is 27 minutes (with no Space), the shortest is only 4:20.
    Both are great.

    @NeoSquadillah Hullo. I haven't heard of Alligator but the Dead have such a monster sized playlist that it is not hard to see why that one got through the net. I agree with you, The Eleven has got to be up there. I wish that Futher hadn't made their version although Im do see that there are lots of young people discovering the Dead through them. I wish you and yours all the best. Peace

    Furthur plays this sooo much better than the grateful dead. no offence, but i think the early grateful dead kinda sucks
