Dead Show/podcast for 10/28/11

I've had a fair number of requests for 90's Dead shows recently, and this week's shows features one of the best shows that took place back in 1993. This one is a favorite not only because the second set features an appearance by Ken Nordine, but also because I really enjoy Jerry's playing and the rest of the band puts in a solid performance. This starts with a tight Help->Slip into a nice long Franklin's Tower. Althea is always a favorite, and the Masterpiece as well as So Many Roads is quite enjoyable.

Dead Show/podcast for 10/21/11

The second set of the Grateful Dead's performance at Wembly Arena on October 30th, 1990 features a great Foolish Heart and Looks Like Rain.. of course I readily admit a soft spot for a good Terrapin and this show has that as well. Listen for the Pink Floyd like phone calls during Drumz..

Dead Show/podcast for 10/14/11

This week's Deadpod came as the result of two requests I received this week - its not unusual to get requests but it is to get two requests for the same show, both from brothers in Europe! Its a fine show, and even though I'd played a show from this year recently I think its worth hearing this one. Besides, something in the ether is wanting me to play this so here it is :) This comes to us from Wembley Arena in London England, from October 30th, 1990. This week's first set, features a nice start to the show, as well as a fine Valley Road by Hornsby to close the set. I hope you enjoy this one..

Sooooooooooo - if you already entered our earlier drawing and did not win, consider yourself entered in this drawing.. (no duplicate entries will NOT help your chances, quite the opposite :)

Dead Show/podcast for 10/7/11

This week's Deadpod takes us back to some early "primal" Dead, back to the Winterland Arena in the fall of 1967. While we don't have all of this show, I think you'll enjoy how tight and well played these songs are. The band is clearly listening to each other and hitting on all cylinders. Pay attention to the lyrics used here on "The Other One".
This show's a blast.. afterwards, I've included a cut from the Europe 72 vol 2 CD, the fabulous "Sing Me Back Home" from the last show of the tour.. I'm supposed to be getting some more copies of this from Rhino and plan to offer up another contest for them, I just want to have them in hand before I start to promise anything.. hope you enjoy it!!!
