Deadshow/podcast for 5/25/12

I know my prejudices are fairly obvious - do I love 1977 Dead shows? Guilty.. I can't seem to go through the month of May without featuring one of these gems and I decided I didn't want to spoil that record this year.. thus this week's show. This is a gem, pure and simple. Beautiful recording, beautiful playing. Check out Jerry on Sugaree, and Donna on Sunrise. Passenger, one of my favorites of this era is a swirling whirlwind of color and sound.. Jack-A-Roe is pretty.. enjoy this.. have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and I hope this music helps lubricate it all..

Dead Show/podcast for 5/18/2012

This week we get to listen to set 2 of the Dead's show in the Vegas desert from May 16th, 1993. All in all, a pretty darn good set, the Help->Slip->Frank features some nice improvisations by Vince. I'm a fan of Terrapin and this one does not disappoint, Jerry is in it.. The Other One and Wharf Rat are first rate, and the Throwin Stones goes into a Lovelight instead of the increasingly usual Not Fade Away.. Brokedown is always a nice way to leave a show..

Hope you enjoy this one my friends..

Dead show/podcast for 5/11/12

This week's show, a listener request, was probably the best of the three day run in Vegas during May of '93. Garcia is fully involved and his work during Althea steps up this first set to be top rate. I really enjoy the reggae-like work on Row Jimmy as well. Cassidy is very well done and closes the set. Regrettably its a very short first set so I included the opening Samson from set 2 in this week's show. I'll play the rest of set 2, in pure soundboard form, next week. This week's first set comes from the last of Dan Healy's 'FM Master' feeds...

Dead Show/podcast for 5/4/12

This week - the 2nd set of this incredible show from 1974 - 5/19/74 from Portland Oregon.  There are so many highlights here its impossible to list them all, The Greatest Story is one of the all-time bests, ditto for the Weather Report into a wondefully Garica-jammed Wharf Rat.  The Peggy-O is beautiful.. but the Phil-led Truckin' through Goin' Down the Road Feelin'Bad is simply magnificent. I love love love the mind left body jam..  This is definitely a time-machine kind of show (meaning I wish I could go back and see it! )Hope you enjoy it just as much as I do.
