Dead Show/podcast for 11/29/13

Happy Thanksgiving (and Hanukka)! While this Deadpod comes on the day after I hope you'll enjoy this week's show as a tasty desert and a sweet way to start off your holiday weekend. I always enjoy bringing you acoustic Dead on the holidays and while I was tempted to save this tasty nugget for Christmas I decided I would play it right now instead. The last official acoustic set of the 70s, the band would not bring these back for 10 years. This set, from the famous Capitol Theater in Port Chester New York, features two songs that would never again be performed, 'Operator' and 'Wake Up Little Susie'. The set features some great banter as well, showing us a side of the band we didn't get to see much in the later years. I bring you this acoustic set as my way of saying thanks to all of you for being a very special part of my life. I do hope you enjoy it.

Can't get enough of the acoustic gems that you provide us! We get to hear songs that we don't often hear, while also being treated to new spins on old favorites that we usually hear in electric fashion. Many thanks, Professor!
