This week we have a wonderful show from the Summer of 1988, PLUS a chance for you to win a great book!
First off, we're going to hear the first set from 7/31/88, Laguna Seca. This set features David Hildago of Los Lobos sitting in on Little Red Rooster and a very hot West LA Fadeaway, then a rare 'Gentlemen Start Your Engines'.. Next week I'll bring you the second set..

Date 7/31/88 - Sunday
One Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodleloo ; Little Red Rooster [1] ; West L.A. Fadeaway [1] ; Me And My Uncle > Big River ; Ramble On Rose ; Gentlemen Start Your Engines ; When I Paint My Masterpiece ; Bird Song

As always you can hear the Deadpod here:

But that's not all! I've been fortunate enough to receive 10 copies of the wonderful book by David Dodd: The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics.
Not only does this 500+ page book contain the lyrics of all of the original GD compositions (and many of the covers), but it also contains a huge wealth of background information on the sources and meaning of the characters and references in the songs. Its a hugely fun read, and all you have to do to have a chance to win your copy is to send me an email at:
I'll pick the winners at random next week!

More information on The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics can be found here.

As always thanks for your support!!

Cool set! Jerry's singing wasn't particularly good, per sé, but he seemed to be trying hard, so he gets an "A" for effort and enthusiasm. Gentlemen Start Your Engines was a highlight for me, and Masterpiece and Bird Song finished out the set in strong fashion. Looking forward to the second set...
