Dead Show/podcast for 09/28/07

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.... )

Dead Show/podcast for 09/21/07

This week I decided to bring you this gem from the spring tour of 1991. The highlights include the long leisurely Birdsong, a truly great Victim which goes into a nice Scarlet->Fire. Coming out of the Fire, an unexpected and delightful stir it up jam..
I hope you enjoy the Band's interplay on this and the space that follows..

Dead Show/podcast for 09/07/07

First off a sincere thank you to all of you who passed along your warm and kind get well wishes to me this week. I was in the hospital because I had an aneurysm in my leg that blocked the blood flow pretty completely. They did a vein graft in there and while I'm still pretty gimpy, at least I'm not in the hospital so I'm thankful for that.
I wanted to get a show up this week, and I think you'll enjoy this one, which was just recently released in a complete form...
