Dead Show/podcast for 11/26/10

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! As is the tradition around these parts, I'm bringing you some wonderful acoustic music for the holidays. This year, two of my favorites - the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band and Old and In The Way are on tap for your post-holiday enjoyment. First off, the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band from Broadway - Jerry Garcia, David Nelson, John Kahn, Sandy Rothman, Kenny Kosek and David Kemper..
I *always* enjoy the sound of these guys - they're fabulous..

Dead Show podcast for 11/19/10

I suppose some might think I'm going a little far of field with this week's Deadpod but when I have the chance to play some rare jammin' Jerry I just can't resist. This show is from an early effort where Jerry joined Howard Wales (with whom Jerry was to release the 'Hooteroll' album) for a series of 14 shows from May of 1970 until this show which was Jerry's last with this lineup..
It is a jammed out jazzy performance of some really nice improvisational music. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I was only going to play the first set, but then thought better of it and decided to bring you the entire show.. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I do..

Dead Show/podcast for 11/12/10

This week's Deadpod, I think, is not to be missed.. not only does it have one of the greatest Dark Stars you'll ever hear, but the transition from Morning Dew back into Playin' *HAS TO BE HEARD* :) , then after a wonderful Deal and Promised land they even play a Brokedown Palace.. this show is a great journey through the classic Grateful Dead songbook..

I highly recommend this one....

Dead Show/podcast for 11/5/10

This week's Deadpod was inspired by someone who actually posted about the show that occurred the night after this one on an internet group I belong to - but it brought this entire run to mind and I really wanted to share *this* night with you - as I find the second set in particular, to be quite extraordinary. This entire 3 show run in fact is quite good, and I enjoy this week's first set very much - in particular an outstanding 'Bird Song' and an exquisite China->Rider..
