Dead Show/podcast for 1/8/10

Perhaps it seems that I've played more than my usual share of Garcia recently - but this newly released gem demands to be heard.. This is (probably) a multi-track recording with the legendary Merle Saunders at the Keystone in Berkeley CA, July 10, 1973.
This is a truly wonderful recording, and if you're a fan of Jerry/Merle then you'll really enjoy this week's and next week's show (when I play the rest of this show)...
Not only does this week's set feature the very first 'The Harder They Come' performance, every song is really a treat, in my opinion....

Wow! Thanks for that incredible recording. I confess I've not listened to much Garcia/Saunders in the past, but that was stunning (My Funny Valentine blew me away) and I am going to definitely be on the lookout for more.

I really do like the Deadpod, it's something to look forward to most every week! Thanks for doing this

Fantastic! Not too many Garcia shows at all, Professor. I can't think of a better one that I've heard! Have a great weekend, all. I'm in the middle of Train and I'm blown away! I've been on etree trying to find a torrent of it, but will have to keep searching.

Although I love when Jerry and the Dead sing (the lyrics of Dead songs are unparalleled), I also love shows like this which are music-driven. The musicianship in this set was truly magical.
