Dead Show/podcast for 3/14/14

March of 1969 was a seriously good month for the young Grateful Dead. The classic run at the Fillmore which opened the month showed us exactly how on fire these guys were at the time. I came across this little gem and was reminded of the energy and power of those days and thought I'd share it with you this week.
This set starts out with the very first 'Hard To Handle' and while Pig isn't at his best here I still find it quite fascinating to hear, knowing what the song would become. Following is a nice Good Morning Little Schoolgirl and the Dark Star->St. Stephen->The Eleven triad that was emblematic of this 'Live Dead' period of their history. The set closes with a good-old long Lovelight that should be sure to get your juices flowing!

Things surely do start out a little rough, but the band really hits its stride during Dark Star, and executes the remainder of the show strongly. I found The Eleven to be particularly invigorating!

The Hilton
Isn't this the gig that they played as a fundraiser for the San Francisco Symphony? One of the trustees was a hipster and hired them . The crowd was in black tie and gowns. I think Scully covered it in his tell-all.
