Dead Show/podcast for 12/4/09

This week's Deadpod features a show that I've always enjoyed, although the recordings that were previously available of it were all flawed in various ways (off pitch, and Jerry was always low in the mix).. this new release from Charlie Miller fixes many of these problems and I think you'll really enjoy the energy the band shows throughout the show....

Grateful Dead - December 11, 1979
Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall - Kansas City, KS
Tuning
Jack Straw
Loser
Me & My Uncle ->
Big River
Althea
Easy to Love You ->
Minglewood Blues
China Cat Sunflower ->
I Know You Rider

I just found out that my good friend - Brian Heath - "the Captain" lost his battle with cancer this week.. Brian knew more about the Dead than I ever will and I'll always remember his kind heart and his big smile.. Sleep in the stars my brother...

I was saddened to hear of The Captain's passing. Having been such a scholar of the band, he must've been a very good egg, indeed.

This was a great show from a year that you don't seem to feature as much. I was glad to add it to my collection.
