Dead Show/podcast for 01/04/08

Happy New Year everyone! While I was looking through the collection for some requested music from Reconstruction, I came across this gem which I thought I should share with you as the first show of the new year.. This comes to us from 1975, and I really enjoy the sound on this even though it *is* an audience front of board recording.. I hope you enjoy it too....
