Dead Show/podcast for 04/30/10

Hello Friends! this week we'll listen to the second set of this fine show from the beginning of the famous Spring of 1977 tour, in Philadelphia PA. This starts with a very nice Scarlet->Fire, a very new combination at the time, and Jerry does an excellent job jamming out on this one. It's followed by a wonderful Samson & Delilah - love the way Bob phrases this one, then a personal favorite, Must have Been the Roses. An unusual Dancin->Got My Mojo Workin'->Dancin' leads into the Wheel-Terrapin combo which closes this gem. This may not be the very best show of this tour, but it is a great listen and I hope you enjoy it!

Dead Show/podcast for 4/23/10

I can usually hold off on these until May officially rolls in, but this spring has come early, and with it, my desire to sample one of these delicious shows from Spring of 1977 - this one is also from the start of the tour, but its a beauty.. This first set starts off with that slow tempo many of these sets exhibit, but by the time we reach that Playin' which closes the first set - Zowie! - we're really in the zone..

Dead Show/podcast for 04/16/10

This week we will hear the rest of Grateful Dead's performance at the Scope in Norfolk, VA, on April 3rd, 1982. After that interesting Scarlet->Fire we heard to close last week's Deadpod, the band goes into a fairly long and jammy Estimated, then a nice Eyes into Brent's "Never Trust A Woman" - while this may not have been your favorite back in the day, I admit I really enjoy listening to Brent now.. after the drums/space, the band goes into a nice NFA->Stella Blue.. an always welcome US Blues encore rounds out an enjoyable show..

Dead Show/podcast for 04/09/10

This week we'll listen to the rest of set 1 of this classic Dead show from 1982, The Scope in Norfolk VA. In addition to an outstanding Peggy-O, the highlight of this week's show for me, is the outstanding Scarlet->Fire - check out Bobby who is really "ON" during the transition jam... I think its quite worthwhile...

Dead Show/podcast for 4/2/10

This week we get to listen to the final part of the Dead's performance on April 27th, 1971 at the Fillmore East, NYC., NY. This includes a wonderful "Sing Me Back Home" and a classic Pigpen Lovelight.. I'm sure you'll enjoy it...

Fillmore East - New York, NY

  1. Johnny B. Goode
  2. Sing Me Back Home
  3. Uncle John's Band
  4. Turn On Your Lovelight

In addition, because this didn't seem quite enough for a Deadpod , I decided to begin a set suggested by one of my wonderful listeners, 4/3/82 from Norfolk VA - we'll only get to hear the first part of set 1, but I think this is a unique show, and its fun to hear this early 80s Dead sound.. I hope you agree!
