Dead Show/podcast for 02/22/08

This week I'd had a request for some '68 Dead, and just happened to have just gotten this remastered beauty. This is quite an amazing recording for a 40 year old show, even more amazing is how accomplished the band sounds when I think of how young they were. I think the power of this music, especially in the second set, is really amazing..

Grateful Dead Carousel Ballroom San Francisco, CA
Date 2/14/68 - Wednesday
One Morning Dew [#6:24] % Good Morning Little Schoolgirl [#12:26] % Dark Star [#4:10] > China Cat Sunflower [4:06] > The Eleven [5:09] > Turn On Your Lovelight [9:01] ; (1) [0:05]
Two (2) Cryptical Envelopment [1:42] > The Other One [3:06] > Cryptical Envelopment [3:58] > New Potato Caboose [8:37] > Born Cross-Eyed [2:46] > Spanish Jam [11:59]; [3:14]; Alligator [3:17] > Drums [2:27] > (3) Alligator [7:#56] > Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) [10:40] > Feedback [5:24]

Picked up this show as sbd from before the shutdown/lockout. Some tracks are the same length, others vary. Illumination: is this a different mix to the show? Comments on differences? (in poor ole Oz 100mb counts as bandwidth to save if possible). Thanks.

When do you normally post what the new podcast will be?

This is a collective thank you for this show (the only 1968s I had were a very scratchy DP 22, Two from Vault and remastered Anthem) and the great Allman Brothers sets. These are great quality and I really enjoy finding these. I first heard the GD in 2001 so all this is a great experience.

Love the energy of early Dead. Great jamming on NP Caboose, and everyone sounded great. The 4-minute Dark Star is "cute"'s interesting to compare this to what Dark Stars eventually became: set-dominating, monstrous, wondrous occurrences (in a good way). Were longer Dark Stars already happening at this point, and this one just happened to be short? I'll have to look into it...
