It took me a bit to decide what to bring you this week, but after I ran across this show I knew it was the right choice.. This is one of those classic live Dead sets from 1969, this one comes from Boulder CO, April 13th. It features everything you'd expect - great Pigpen raps, wild, far-out jamming and some magnificent moments from Garcia - most notably on the Dark Star and the Eleven. Personally, I'm always blown away by a really well-played and heartfelt Death Don't Have No Mercy - it ends the set I'm bringing you this week. I hope you enjoy it...
(note there are some anomalies - Lovelight cuts early, Doin' that Rag is cut at the start and the Dark Star has a splice.. still I think the outstanding quality more than makes up for them.... )
