Dead Show/podcast for 5/7/10

This week - in a nod I suppose to the new Rhino release from the Summer of '89, I decided to feature this fine show from the spring of that year. This was originally a Rex Benefit, at the Frost Ampitheater in Palo Alto CA, a fine venue that the band always seemed to enjoy playing.

This show is no exception, the first set perhaps has a somewhat mellow tempo or vibe, but I think they display fine form on Peggy-O and They Love Each Other.. the Race Is On indicates it must be Derby day ;). I'm not a huge West LA fan, but I am a fan of Brent's 'Just A Little Light'.. I think it was always special when they did a China->Rider to close out a first set..
