Dead Show/podcast for 1/24/14

The anniversary of this show rolled around this week, and as far as I can tell I've never played it on the Deadpod which is astonishing to me as its truly a great one, so I decided to feature it this week and next. This one comes to us from early 1978, While this show is deservedly famous for its second set, in particular being known as the 'close encounters' show, the first set we'll hear this week is no slouch. While it takes a song or two to really get rolling I think you'll agree that from the El Paso on the band really starts to turn it  up.. The Jack Straw and Tennesse Jed are outstanding, and I think you'll enjoy how much different the Row Jimmy sounds from those that came in 1977.. The Music Never Stopped that closes the set is definitely first rate as well and is a perfect prelude to what will come in set 2. To me this is one of the highlights of the latter day Keith period with the band and I hope you agree..

Did Jerry ever play pedal steel on stage with the Dead? It's amazing how he can bend the guitar to mimic the pedal steel but there's nothing like the real thing, especially on Row Jimmy.

That may be the best Jack Straw I've ever heard
