Dead Show/podcast for 10/25/13

What a soulful Jerry Band set to warm you up on this late October weekend.. Of course this is the 2nd set from the show we started last week, Jerry's comeback on 10/31/92 in Oakland. I really enjoyed listening to this one. It starts out with a killer Shining Star.. nice and slow... then one of my favorites, Jerry's cover of Van Morrison's 'And It Stoned Me', this one always pulls on the heartstrings.. Next up is a song that Jerry covered in his later years, but sounds like it was meant for him, Roy Rodgers and Norton Buffalo's 'Ain't No Bread in the Breadbox'.. here Jerry really gets warmed up on the guitar.. he follows it with the always rockin' 'Tore Up Over You'.. The almost spiritual 'Waiting For A Miracle' then 'My Sisters and Brothers' gives the show that gospel flavor. Tangled Up in Blue shows why Garcia was always a masterful interpreter of Dylan.
Of course its Halloween, Jerry doesn't disappoint with the wonderful Warren Zevon's 'Werewolves of London'..

Oh, wow! I've never been much of a Jerry Band fan (I strongly lean towards pre-74 Dead) - but this, THIS, is just really sweet and heart-wrenching. Thank you for sharing!

Loved this. Really enjoyed hearing Breadbox for the first time. Then, coincidentally, I hear the same song just a week later performed live by the amazing Cubensis, SoCal's own GD tribute band. I encourage you all to get acquainted with them, whether live, on archive(dot)org, or on their site!
