Dead Show/podcast for 3/19/10

Sometimes events happen that push me to pick out a show for the Deadpod that I hadn't been thinking about at all.. such happened this week - first the newest "Road Trips" Release - Nov. 15, 1971 from Austin Texas arrived in my mailbox - I don't often gush over these but this is a good one! At about the same time a series of new releases on the tape collecting scene from legendary collector Charlie Miller - including this beauty from a legendary night at the Fillmore East in New York City, April 27th 1971. While this night is best known for the second set we'll hear next week (when the boys are joined on stage by the Beach Boys) - this first set has some mighty fine playing on it - including what is arguably the best "Hard To Handle" you'll find..

Looking forward to that Okie from Muskokie already, Mine is buried in a box of analog. When they sing that we can imagine the smiles on the faces. Thanks for always kicking off my weekend Grateful.

Your posts and the sweet sounds of Jerry have helped get me through a long deployment here in Iraq. Thanks for what you do.
