Dead Show/podcast for 11/8/13

This week we go back 26 years for a fine second set from the Fall of 1987 - this again from the Henry Kaiser Convention Center in Oakland, this second set has a unique 'Uncle John's Band' opener.. and in fact a very tasty set list. They then move into a nicely jammed out version of Playin' In the Band.. we then make a stop at Terrapin Station - I believe they some interesting explorations in that jam after the song and heading into Drums.. they lead out into 'I Need A Miracle' but what may be the highlight for me is the Black Peter that follows. Jerry's voice is still in fine form and he does a great job on this one. The set ends with a standard but well played Throwin' Stones->Not Fade Away.. The boys seem to think their night is over after the 'Knockin' encore but the crowd will have none of it and calls them back for a second encore, 'One More Saturday Night'...

A gargantuan opening to the set: UJB > PITB > Terrapin! Wow! Drums & Space were magnificent, and the set continued on at a very high level from there.
