Dead Show/podcast for 5/28/10

I had a request a couple weeks back to play something for the folks suffering from the horrible floods that hit Nashville TN recently - I know there are still alot of folks there who won't have their lives together for awhile and I thought about this 'partial' soundboard from a wonderful show the boys played there back in 1972 - in fact you can read all about this show and see some newspaper clippings and such about the show here:

Unfortunately we only have part of the second set, but it is a really great part! :)

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do..

Grateful Dead

Vanderbilt University, Nashville TN 10/21/1972

Dead Show/podcast for 5/21/10

This week's Deadpod answers another listener request - and frankly this show is *electric*
If you don't dig this first set I don't know what's up.. this is one of Dick Latvala's favorite sets and its easy to see why he coined the term 'Primal Dead' for it.. the first set is fabulous -we probably don't have everything here -- but what is here exists in really wonderful quality and reflects the band as young and fully charged.. in every sense..I'm sure you'll enjoy this one !

This week we have the second set from the Rex Benefit. This features a nice start, with a 'Good Times' into Hey Pocky Way.. a very unusual Ship of Fools, Playin' into Eyes.. and a Wharf Rat in the ballad slot.. Good classic late 80s Grateful Dead..

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..
