Dead Show/podcast for 2/13/15

Yowza! When a tape such as the one we're going to hear this week sees the light of day I simply can't contain my enthusiasm.This tape comes from June 5th, 1970 - Fillmore West San Francisco California.. that's right 1970.. one of the greatest watershed years in the band's history and one that has always been sadly underrepresented in terms of recordings.. Furthurmore the provenance of this tape traces back to Bear who recorded it on a Sony 770 reel to reel deck. We have both an acoustic and electric set.. and I can't possible not play the entire set for you this week.
Naturally there are various tape dropouts and cuts, reel flips, etc... a small price to pay for this fabulous treasure, in my opinion. This is a real beauty my friends.. I hope you savor it as much as I have!

Wow!! What a mindblower! I need some time to let this show soak in. Jerrys voice is sweet and pure and real and the boys are rocking. 'The sun will shine in my backdoor someday' I was reminded of my first dead show and the moment I realized it was no longer about me or the beautiful universe I had created. I realized there was something bigger, something I had never conceived could be so epic. I told this story to an old friend today (while jamming this show), reliving my dead awakening moment brought a smile to my face and to the face of my friend but also a frown because he wished he could have gone to a Dead show and had his eyes opened. I told him not to worry, we will watch the closing of winterland dvd and he can listen to the professor.
