Dead Show/podcast for 9/18/09

I had a request from one of my long time listeners for some primal Dead.. preferably from '67..
Well I have been wanting to break this out for a while and while its not quite '67 its only a month off.. Jan of '68 .. although there has been some discussion as to the legitimacy of the date and venue of this show.. what there is no question of is that this is a helluva piece of early Dead music.. I really enjoy the Born Cross-Eyed, well and the Spanish Jam and the Dark Star.. and and : ) Seriously this piece will take several listens to fully digest ..

Enjoy this sample of electric. live, Good Old Grateful Dead...

Nice show. Unusual set in many ways: order of songs and some different approaches to those songs. Anyone know the exact date? Or the controversy about the date? Either way, for those of us who prefer our Dead in the 60s, this is a winner.

this from deadlists.com:
"Although this circulates labeled as "1/22/68 Eagles Aud", no documentary evidence (posters, reviews, newspaper ads, etc) has been found for shows there during the Quick and the Dead tour, other than the two on 1/26 and 1/27. Joe Jupille researched the University of Washington Daily and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspapers and only found an ad for QMS and the Dead on 1/26 and 1/27 in the 1/26/68 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (the weekend entertainment insert, p. 6). He turned up no mention of other Quick and the Dead shows at Eagles Auditorium. This has one of the early versions of The Other One lyrics: "I woke up this morning, my head was not in sight. I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight. I could not think or spell my name, or fly there was no way. And the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day. Skipping through the lilly fields, when I came across an empty space. It quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its place. The bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began. There was Cowboy Neal, at the wheel, of a bus to never-ever land."

What is the lyric of "That's it for the other one"? Where Spanish Lady usullay comes in, Weir sings a whole verse I nver heard before (starts "I woke up this morning..."). Any one know?
Great recording...many thanks.

p.s. any chance of 01-02-1970 late show?
