Dead Show/podcast for 3/26/10

This week's Deadpod continues with the second set of this wonderful show from the Fillmore East, April 27th, 1971.. It starts with some fine classic Dead tunes, then the boys are joined onstage by the Beach Boys! Together, they combine on some really fun songs - especially the truly poignant Okie From Muskogee" ...

We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee;
We don't take our trips on LSD
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street;
We like livin' right, and bein' free.

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..

Dead Show/podcast for 3/5/10

This week's Deadpod features a wonderful show that happened on this date 38 years ago.. March 5, 1972 at Winterland in San Franscisco CA. While there are a few tape splices on this overall I think while this is not a pristine recording that's its quite listenable and the band is in fine fine form. Keith is new to the lineup and a great addition at this point (and listen for Wavy Gravy at the start of China Cat).. and of course its great to listen to Pigpen as well..

We'll play the second set next week........
