Dead Show/podcast for 10/30/09

Howdy Friends - no tricks this week - just a real musical treat - the remainder of the electric set from 10/26/80 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, NY.. This is very fine set of music - Jerry is in very fine voice and Bob is *very* animated (in fact watch your speakers at the end of Good Lovin!!!!)..
Althea, He's Gone, Stella Blue and one of the most beautiful Brokedown's ever highlight this spectacular set of classic Dead - I sure hope you enjoy it!!

Dead Show/podcast for 10/23/09

I'm surrounded by beautiful Fall foliage here in Michigan this time of year and it brought to mind this quite remarkable period of Dead shows. I will never forget when I saw the Dead open up sitting around and playing accoustic music. I loved those shows, and unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of soundboards of complete shows from that period that are out but this is one and I hope that you enjoy hearing it as much as I do.

Yes the acoustic sets may not have as much variety as we'd like - but I really doubt that you can avoid having a smile as you listen to the boys chat between tunes or sing along as you listen to Ripple.. its a real pleasure for me and I hope you enjoy it as well..

Dead Show/podcast for 10/16/09

This week we get to listen to one of the best second sets that the band produced in 1983.. Each of these songs individually is played with a verve that will bring a smile to your face, but the totality, as is often the case with the Dead, is much more than the beauty of the individual songs.
I could tell you how much I enjoy this particular china->rider, or the wonderful Space into the best St. Stephen of the last three the band played, but I'd rather you simply enjoy this set and the joy that I hope it brings you...

Dead Show/podcast for 10/2/09

this week's Deadpod features the 2nd set of this entertaining show from 9/24/91, Boston MA.
Its one of those second sets that I really enjoy the song choices.. China->Rider is always a keeper, and Man Smart, Woman Smarter always got everyone on their feet! The Ship of Fools->Dark Star is fine as well. A rare Foolish Heart out of space, and one of these later day 'Standing On the Moon's that is very mellow.. The Weight encore caps a set that really does move my soul.
