Dead Show/podcast for 02/29/08

This week I have an excellent show from 1989 for your listening pleasure - we'll be hearing the first part of August 6th, 1989 from Cal Expo. The show starts with a 'Let the Good Times Roll' that the band ends perfectly and rolls into 'Feel Like a Stranger' and then Franklin's Tower.. A very interesting and well played start to a wonderful show. I really enjoy this first part of the show - highlighted by Garcia's singing on Ramble on Rose and a great version of Birdsong. I've included the magnificent Scarlet->Fire that opens the 2nd set..

I confess I am no big fan of later years Dead, but this is a really good show. Thanks.

Great choice this week. My first show in '83, so I love a good '80s set.
thanks for all your good work.

Love the trio of songs that opens this set...fabulously unusual! Not a down moment to be found here. Can't wait to see what the second set has in store...

Anonymous said... somewhat amend my previous statement, I cannot wait to see what the REST of the second set has in store: that Scarlet > Fire is a superb start!
