Dead Show/podcast for 8/17/12

This week, the heart of set 2 from the classic Red Rocks show performed on July 8th, 1978. There's no filler here, folks, just prime cut Dead. You might notice that sometimes they're not quite sure where the muse is going to take them, but once it does they follow at full throttle.
The Wharf Rat is one of my all time favorites.
The Werewolves of London is clearly the best they played.

Can you believe Elvis has been gone 35 years yesterday? I don't feel old but I remember that day well.

Check this pic I found on Donna Jean's FB page! She's awesome.

Just donated (finally). Thanks for all the great shows brother. Many podcasts have come and gone in my (i)Life; but this one is the only constant.

Not that I minded hearing this show once again, but I just discovered this same show in the archives, June 2007. I absolutely love this was one of the first few shows that I heard on the Deadpod after being turned onto it back in mid 2012, and played no small part in getting me re-hooked on the band after a lengthy hiatus!
