Dead Show/podcast for 3/29/13

As we prepare to turn the page on March, I thought it might be nice to pull out a really smoking show from way back in 1969.. this one comes to us from 3/28/69 at the Modest Jr. College Civic Center in Modesto California.. yes a unique venue..but quite a strong outing for the boys.
This one starts out with a strong Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, but follows that up with a deep space Dark Star... Jerry has some wonderful  leads in this one, and it threads its way through chaos and eternity into a rousing Saint Stephen... The Eleven is always a thrill to me and this has some extended build ups.. The Death Don't Have No Mercy is powerful.. as usual.. a classic 23 minute Lovelight follows, with Pigpen leading the charge. The second set consists of one long 'The Other One'.. its a high energy jam that is abruptly stopped when someone turns on the house lights and ends the show!
I hope you enjoy this one my friends..

Professor - That is quite a Dark Star through 11 run. Really enjoyed the DS; I think it's moved up to one of my favorites and 11 to me is just one of the best to show the Jerry/Phil dynamic. Crazy lyrics but Fingers boogieing!

Thanks for sharing...

Man, this was a smokin' show, all the way around! Although choosing your favorite Dead song is like choosing your favorite child (i.e., it's darn near impossible, because you love them all so very much), I'm beginning to wonder whether "Death Don't Have No Mercy" is my fave. It's a tremendous bummer that the lights came on so abruptly, as the guys were jamming hard and well; but, then again, it contributes a fun, quirky little footnote to the band's lore.
