Dead Show/podcast for 9/2/11

On this holiday weekend I decided to bring you a complete show from one of my very favorite venues - the Starlight Theater in Kansas City, MO.. This show took place 26 years ago on September 3rd, 1985. While Jerry may not have been in the best of voice that summer, I do have to give the boys props for mixing up the setlists on that tour, and this is a great example of that. I hope you enjoy the show - for me the highlights are a wonderful Eyes of the World, and I suppose I've never heard a 'Comes A Time that didn't move me...

This is not only a great show for 1985, it's simply a great show! I noticed that Brent was playing quite well. Don't Ease was very well played. I've always found it somewhat endearing when Jerry or Bob flub up a bit on lyrics. Plus, given the extensive songbook from which they draw, I'm willing to give them a free pass, as one cannot expect them to remember and perfectly sing and play so many songs all the time. Having said that, while The Other One was well played, it was very poorly sung.
