Dead Show/podcast for 11/18/11

I'm afraid that when I think of an iconic year for Grateful Dead music in the month of November that 1973 always pops into my mind. This, combined with a long-time request for this show on my request list, led to this week's show. Yes, this is only a day before the show released as Road Trips vol 4 no. 3, and that release does contain a few songs from this set 2, nevertheless, this music is far too wonderful not to be heard and treasured. In this week of Thanksgiving I can think of no better way to be grateful than to celebrate a great show like this one.. I hope you enjoy it as well my friends..

Professor - thanks for sharing the 73. Wonderful wonderful tunes. Oh how I wish I could be back for those couple of days in Denver. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all the folks that enjoy the Deadpod!

This is a great set! I was particularly excited to hear The Race Is On. I only remembered that song to be a song by a country band called Sawyer Brown from the late '80's (I think); and, until I heard this show just now, I figured it was SB's song. Then, I went back and did some quick Google research, and was reminded that it was originally a George Jones song (I knew that once upon a time, but had forgotten). I also once heard a show on The Deadpod from 1969 (I think) in which they played Hard To Handle...I never knew that to be anyone's song other than The Black Crowes. This is one of the things that I love most about The Dead: their music and the covers they play are a study in Americana; and, even beyond that, the more I delve into their lyrics--and the people, places, and things to which they refer--I find that I am receiving my degree in Western culture! And you, Professor, are my professor!

Professor, I posted a comment the other day about The Race is On...did that not come through to you?

the professor said...

I'm not sure - I certainly did not ignore it intentionally! sorry!

That comment above must have been it! Sorry! it was stuck in the 'awaiting moderation' box - happens sometimes... at any rate it is true that Garcia was a real student of American music, not only country but bluegrass in particular...
