Dead Show/podcast for 1/22/10

This week marked the 75th birthday of one of the most pivotal characters in the history of the Grateful Dead, Owsley Stanley.
It would certainly not be an exaggeration to claim that the Grateful Dead would not have been without his help and involvement - nor even to say that the world is a much different place because of all he has done..
Jamie Waddell over at Lossless legs released this music, recorded by Bear himself, to mark the occasion and I felt it a noteworthy moment and wanted to share it with you..

This is a beautiful show, nicely recorded (there are spots with quite a lot of reverb) and not every song was recorded.. we have what Bear decided to record... but I do think you'll enjoy it..

While the Let It Grow was as wonderfully furious and earnest as usual, I found much of the show to be somewhat pedestrian, and the quality of the recording left something to be desired. The second set was better than the first, though. With all due respect to Mr. Stanley, his contribution to the band, his 75th birthday, and his more recent passing, this is now the second recording of his that I have heard featured on the Deadpod, and I found both to be lacking. I feel like a jerk saying this, and perhaps I am ignorant and missing something?
