Dead Show/podcast for 8/28/09

This week we have the entire second set of the Dead's wonderful performance at the Orlando Arena on April 7th, 1991. A splendid example of Garcia and Hornsby, this set opens with a splendid Crazy Fingers into an always enjoyable Playin'>Uncle John's>Playin' sandwich... I especially enjoy the jamming in the Playin' reprise, which goes into a very enjoyable drumz>space segment. 

The set closes with a wonderful Hornsby presence on the 'Baby Blue' encore..

Dead show/podcast for 08/21/09

Hello Friends!
This week I've decided to spotlight one of the best shows from what was really quite a good tour - Spring 1991 - this show is from Orlando, Florida, from April 7th.. Its another show where the interplay between Garcia and Hornsby causes some wonderful sparks to fly.. add to that the Reuben and Cherise and its a very interesting listen.. I hope you enjoy it.

Dead show/podcast for 08/14/09

As I'm sure you know, this weekend marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock..
of course the Grateful Dead played there - in fact they were one of the headliners - yet they thought so little of their performance there that they never had anything good to say about it..

Whether the Dead's performance was any worse than any number of shows is an open question, yet the significance of the event for the culture Zeitgeist is beyond question.. We start this week's Deadpod with a discussion with author Pete Fornatale, whose new book Back to the Garden, The Story of Woodstock presents an oral history of this amazing event..

We then listen to two songs from the Dead's performance that night -
High Time and Lovelight, the latter where the band is joined by a very high Ken Babbs...
Hope you enjoy the show..

Dead show/podcast for 08/07/09

This week we have a fabulous Jerry Garcia/Merl Saunders show from 1974 - this comes to us from the late Jerry Moore, long time taper and tape collector, and I could think of no more fitting way to remember the 'days between' than to bring you some of this fine, fine Jerry ...

I really love listening to Jerry during this period.. truly one of the highlights of an extraordinary life..
