#34 (mp3)

#34 made a brief span of appearances in early 1993. It was inspired by and written for Miguel Valdez, a percussionist who sat in with the band in 1992 and who passed away in early 1993. It was finally released in 1994 on "Under the Table and Dreaming" (track #34) as an instrumental track. It is also co-written by Haines Fullerton, an early collaborator who took his own life in September 1996. The song made a surprising comeback on July 9th, 2005 after a few teases earlier in the tour. This is currently the longest comeback in DMB history, at 4491 days between performances, or a little over 12 years. It was played again with some lyrics (for the first time since 1993) on October 2nd, 2007 to celebrate Dave's wife's 34th birthday.
