Dead Show/podcast for 11/11/11

This week I'll make good on my promise to play the second set from the Dead's performance at the Rosemont Horizon in Chicago Illinois on March 11th, 1993. If you're not familiar with the spoken word work of Ken Nordine you're in for a treat here as he recites two of his wonderful word poems, "Fliberty Jib" and "The Island".. the music is quite good also.. I won't say much about 'Wave to the Wind' - I always thought it dreadful, but aside from that its a very good second set, especially from The Other One on, through 'Days Between' with a nice Liberty encore.. I think you'll enjoy it..

John, I must add what a treat it was to happen to be down close in front. If memory serves, we wondered what was going on when Mickey and Bill came down off the drum riser, grabbed some bongos and other percussion and sat down on some stools, Jerry (and then the rest of band) came out and all of a sudden there was Ken Nordine. Btw the NPR affiliate in Chicago, WBEZ still produces his Word Jazz radio show, altho most non Heads will recall him as the voice of Folgers coffee.

I just started listening to the Deadpod,& was the 1st show I heard, Thanks so much 4all your doing. I remember that show, was raining slush, brought back a hilarious memory. Love the quality also. If you could play a Europe 90 show, they were great, but still my favorite still was, Seattle 94 2nd set, I miracled a new friend & was outside when the speakers were turned around & we"danced in the streets",well highwY 2 one of the best Scarlet/Fire jams I remembered,it was surreal & I was in shock. But late 80s Oakland & Alpine shows were also equally insane. Thanks, DannE.

A very enjoyable set...some excellent singing and playing. The poetry made this very, what a great voice on Ken, huh? I hate to pour gasoline on the fire, and I love Phil...but, man, Wave To The Wind is hard to listen to.
