Dead Show/podcast for 6/25/10

Every so often I get the craving for some 'pure' Jerry - and this is one of those weeks - this week I'm bringing you one of the lesser known of the bands Jerry played with - Reconstruction. 

Here's the lineup for this show:

Jerry Garcia guitar, vocals
John Kahn bass
Merl Saunders keyboards
Ed Neumeister trombone
Ron Stallings saxophone, vocals
Gaylord Birch drums

It's possible that this isn't everyone's cup of tea - but while its not the most well-known Garcia, I think you'll enjoy it... 

Reconstruction - July 7, 1979
Keystone - Palo Alto, CA

- Set 1 -
Tellin' My Friends
That's What Love Will Make You Do
Do I Move You
Another Star
Struggling Man
Make It Better

Thanks for listening and for all your support!!!

Dead Show/podcast for 6/18/10

This week we will hear the rest of the second set from the 4/26/83 show at the Spectrum in Philadelphia PA. I personally enjoyed listening to this as I find the Truckin'->Morning Dew very well played and while many of us tired of Throwin' Stones ->Not Fade Away it did have its own charm and power.. I hope you enjoy this one!

Dead Show/podcast for 6/11/10

This week we have the first part of the  second set of this very well played show from the spring tour of 1983 - this set starts with a fabulous Help->Slip->Frank.. I really love the slipknot here and recommend that you give it a good listen... If your'e a Brent fan you'll enjoy his work on Man Smart, Woman Smarter

I know this Deadpod is a bit shorter than usual - was running out of space this week - but we'll be back to normal next time - thanks for your patience!

Dead Show/podcast for 6/4/10

This week's Deadpod results once more from a wonderful suggestion from one of our listeners - this one was for something from the Spring tour of 1983 - a great set of shows - and while this show isn't *exactly* one of the ones requested its one I quite enjoy.. it starts out with a thunderous Shakedown Street and the energy throughout is quite good. I really think you'll enjoy it!
