Dead Show/podcast for 11/16/07

This week we will finish listening to the 2nd set of the Grateful Dead's historic 10/16/74 performance at Winterland in San Francisco. This is a very jamming, almost experimental piece of music as the band really explores some different spaces, especially on songs like Eyes of the World. I hope you'll enjoy it..

Dead Show/podcast for 11/09/07

This week a new soundboard release of the first of the five "retirement" shows from the Winterland from October of 1974. These justly famous shows were of course immortalized on "The Grateful Dead Movie" but deserve to be enjoyed individually as much as possible. Phil's spectacular playing more than makes up for Donna's occasional off-key wailing ;).

Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 10/16/74 - Wednesday
Mexicali Blues ; It Must Have Been The Roses ; Beat It On Down The Line ; Scarlet Begonias ; Me And Bobby McGee ; Tennessee Jed ; Cumberland Blues ; Row Jimmy; Playing In The Band

This segment is what exists in soundboard format of the first set. I am very glad you enjoyed last week's complete show. I'll do it again - but am not sure that I could do so every week.. but keep your eyes open we'll do it again soon!

Dead Show/podcast for 11/02/07

This week I'm trying something crazy - this week's Deadpod is an entire, complete show from 1976. This is a *huge* file folks, and I hope that you are all able to listen to this and enjoy this really unique show. I'm doing this as a favor to one of the friends of the Deadpod who is running in this weekend's NYC Marathon, and hoped to get to hear a complete show. I've also had requests for a mid-70s show and a 'help->slip->Franklin's'.. well this show has an epic Franklin's so I really hope that all of you have the time and bandwidth to hear it all.. Thanks for your understanding and we'll see how this one goes - I couldn't possibly post something this large every week, but what the hell, let's see how it goes!! And Best of luck to you David, and anyone else in the Marathon!
