Dead Show/podcast for 11/20/09

This week I'm doing something I don't usually do - and that is rather than play this complete show over two weeks I decided to play you the real heart of this show this week - (not saying I can't be persuaded to play the rest of this... :) partly because its Thanksgiving and I have something in mind for next week :)
Be that as it may - this piece of music, from the second set of 11/17/73 is simply astounding. It represents a true pinacle of the outstanding musicianship that the band achieved during this landmark year. I challange any fan of the band to not be moved by this remarkable piece of music - clearly when they play like this I am firmly convinced that their music is for the ages...

Bill - as to your Stella Blue question: No. The ending is simply perfect. And the Eyes!

Professor - Thanks! We don't want to interfere with the special item for next week, but it'd be great to hear the rest of the show sometime! Happy Thanksgiving

I love, love, love this '73 show. My favorite year. The smoothness and mellowness is perfect for Garcia's voice and gorgeous playing. The Eyes is perfect and the Stella, I couldn't even pay attention to my work. Thanks for the deadpod Professor!

This is a simply sublime piece of music. Phil was very prominent in the mix, and I was glad of that. If the rest of the show is half as good, then I hope to hear it!
