Dead Show/podcast for 12/18/09

This week's Deadpod has two unusual occurances - first a show from 1986 - a year I usually find quite depressing and an audience tape to boot! I think when you give this show a listen you'll understand why I decided to ignore my prejudices and post this classic show! This one starts with a smokin' Alabama Getaway into Greatest Story.. there's a *fine* Dire Wolf and I was always a fan of Brother Esau.. the rest of the set is very well played as well, and closes with the second Box of Rain in a week after having not been played since '73.. the crowd goes predictably wild.. :)

I hope you enjoy the performance..

Purely coincidental, I'm sure, but I laughed out loud when I saw the show you selected, just a few days prior to the Portland show I mentioned in my post yesterday, but it has the rare (for the times) "Box of Rain", which is what I was hoping to see. Thanks, Professor! Keep up the good work!

This show was awesome. I was there and the 2nd set was absolutely killer with the Lost Sailor--St of Circumstance--Drums-space--Morning Dew and Midnight Hour Encore. You must podcast it next week!!!!!!!!!!!

I may bew mistaken, but wasn't this the first "Box of Rain" in a long, long time? I remember a great deal of buzz about it . . .

Thanks for that one professor. Some college buddies and I were at this show. I remember shouting loudly, "Let Phil Sing!" Hoping to hear it on the aud. tape but alas, not there. I would have not believed this to be an aud. tape. Kudos to the taper. Cheers and happy new year.

Glad to have heard my first show from '86! Despite having heard that this was a "down year," I found that this set was a good one, and worth saving. And, I enjoyed the audience aspect. Professor, you do such a great job of curating and sharing with us such good audios which highlight the music itself; but, every once in a while, it's nice to feel as if we were there in and amongst our brethren.

Funny! I came here to comment on what a fabulous set I found this to be, and how I lamented the fact that the second set didn't follow. I also had planned to mention how hearing the audience made me feel as if I were there. But, as I read the comments of others (which I always enjoy doing), I discovered a rather similar comment...that I myself had posted! I had already listened to this DP! I was also very happy to realize that the 2nd set did in fact follow...with just the Christmas show in between. Can't wait to listen to the second set again. It's like Deja Vu all over again!
