Dead Show/podcast for 6/27/08

This week we'll get to hear the rest of the second set from April 4th, 1971 at the Manhattan Center in New York, New York. Personally, I can't get enough of this early Dead - its a real treat to hear Pigpen on Hard To Handle, as well as his organ throughout. The ending combo of Goin' Down The Road>Saint Stephen>Not Fade Away>Uncle John's Band is quite a tasty treat as well...

Grateful Dead Manhattan Center New York, NY
Date 4/4/71 - Sunday
Hard To Handle ; Deal ; Sugar Magnolia ; Casey Jones ; Good Lovin' ; Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Saint Stephen > Not Fade Away > Uncle John's Band

You can listen to the Deadpod here (but not live on this week - I'll be away):

Have a great week everyone!!

Dead Show/podcast for 6/20/08

This week we have one of those great shows from 1971 - for a long time the only soundboard in circulation of this show only contained three songs - but luckily for us this has now surfaced and we have the pleasure of listening to this entire show..
I'll play the second set next week, but there's plenty to chew on here - notice of course the very last 'Easy Wind', and a fabulous 'Me & Bobby McGee'...

Grateful Dead Manhattan Center New York, NY
Date 4/4/71 - Sunday
One Bertha ; Me And My Uncle ; Next Time You See Me ; Morning Dew ; Playing In The Band [4:20] ; Loser ; Easy Wind [8:55] ; Me And Bobby McGee ; Greatest Story Ever Told > Johnny B. Goode

Have a wonderful week, and enjoy!!

Dead Show/podcast for 6/13/08

This week we get to hear the rest of that fine 1st set - and the entire 2nd set - from the classic performance of 5/4/77 at the Palladium in NYC., NY.
The first set ends with a fine and very well played Dancin' In the Streets, but the real meat of this show is the 2nd set, in my opinion. Here we have a monsterous 45 minute Terrapin->Playin'->Comes a Time->Playin that just will blow your socks off.
When the band finishes the Playin' reprise, the house lights come up and the show is over - there's nothing else they can add.. and I don't think anyone was complaining..
I think you'll agree....

Grateful Dead The Palladium New York, NY 5/4/77 - Wednesday
end of set 1: Looks Like Rain [8:16] ; Brown Eyed Women [5:05] ; Dancing In The Street [17:56]
Two Estimated Prophet [8:14] ; Scarlet Begonias [9:15] > Fire On The Mountain [11:06] ; Terrapin Station [9:40] > Playing In The Band [18:#12] > Comes A Time [10:52] > Playing In The Band [8:06]

Dead Show podcast for 6/6/08

Somehow the month of May slipped by without my having posted something from that unbelievable month in GD history. I'm going to make up for that this week and next with this fat show from the GD archives. This show is somewhat overlooked all in all, with all the attention paid to some of the more famous shows during this month - but its well worth a listen..

Grateful Dead The Palladium New York, NY 5/4/77 - Wednesday
One Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo [10:29] > Big River [6:37] ; They Love Each Other [6:46] ; New Minglewood Blues [4:44] ; It Must Have Been The Roses [6:43] ; Cassidy [4:39] ; Deal [6:18] ;

Please note - I had meant to include the entire first set this week but I made a mistake and didn't.. sorry! I'll include the missing songs in next week's Deadpod.

I do hope you enjoy this week's selection - I'll bring you the second set next week.

As always you can listen to the Deadpod here:
