Dead Show/podcast for 4/8/11

This week's second set from August 4th, 1976 clocks in at just over two hours of wonderful Grateful Dead music. From the first notes of Help on the Way through the Johnny B. Goode encore the band treats us to a very memorable experience.
I'm personally fond of the amazing Dancin' In the Streets that comes out of Franklin's Tower, as well as the inspired jam in the Other One.. I hope you find as much to linger over here as I do....

Really great 2nd set, thanks Professor. If you love Phil you'll love this recording, he is front and center stompin' away!

I loved Phil's work in this set, although he was a little too prominent in the mix. But, I'd rather hear too much Phil than too little! Conversely, the vocals were usually a tad too distant. Help On The Way was agonizingly slow. I was so relieved when the pace increased for Franklin's Tower, and the tempo of the remainder of the set was just fine. Overall, the set was generally well played and sung. One thing I love the most about '76 Dead is Keith Godchaux's piano work: it's never really featured, but it has a certain quality that is very pleasing to me. It supplements the other players so well, and its understated omnipresence supplies a fullness and richness to the sound that I truly enjoy. Ship Of Fools was a highlight for me.
