Dead show/podcast for 5/29/09

Wow, this week we're lucky enough to listen to a real find, courtesy of Jamie Waddell, who claims to have been turned on to this amongst a box of tapes turned on to him at a yard sale of all places...
this is a really nice JGB show from 1987, and while the first song (both this week and next) come from an audience patch, the rest is very high quality soundboard.
I know you're going to enjoy this one if you a fan of the big guy.. :)

Happy Memorial Day Weekend Friends!
I hope you're ready for a wild ride, because this week's Deadpod is ready to roll!
When I listen to this the pure genius and virtuosity of Garcia floods my mind.. especially in the insanely beautiful jam into and out of the Eleven....

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did, when I was out walking through the beautiful woods of Michigan this week listening to it!

Dead show/podcast for 5/15/09

I receive quite a few requests for shows to play on the Deadpod - and unfortunately can't publish all of them, but I've had a few requests recently for some "primal" Dead. Coinciding with this request was the release of a new version of the classic show we're going to start to listen to this week, without one of the brutal cuts that plagued all earlier versions, from master collector Charlie Miller, so it seemed to me that the fates were telling me to bring this show to you.. I'm certain you'll enjoy this - the band just *smokes* on this one, my friends..
