Ask and you shall receive.. at least sometimes.. :) this week's Deadpod was the result of a request just posted on the Facebook page for 8/23/68.. this is a great performance and a pretty damm good tape.. it took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles CA the night before 'Two From The Vault' was recorded.. this features the Dead during one of their most creative periods. I just love the energy on this tape.. the opening Other One on this tape just crackles with it.. The Dark Star is full of Pigpen's funky organ in that characteristic early opening.. The Eleven is one of my favorite versions ever.. and there's really no words to describe the Alligator->Caution.. this is the highlight of an incredible show.. dig it.
