Dead Show/podcast for 5/1/15

Here we are in the beautiful month of May - Kentucky Derby weekend no less - so I wanted to bring you a set that of course included the band's wonderful rendition of George Jones'  'The Race Is On'.. In addition, this pick comes from the fabulous Frost Amphitheater back in the fine year of 1989..  This week's show from May 6th, 1989, happened to be a Rex benefit as well, and I think it is a fine example of the band's work during this period which was always easy to listen to and enjoy.
While the setlist is perhaps not extraordinary, aside from the Race Is On's inclusion, the songs are all quite up tempo (with the exception of Walkin' Blues and a perhaps not the best-played version of West LA.. ) and I'm sure the crowd was enjoying itself in the California sunshine. I hope you enjoy this one as well..........

Hi professor,

Always nice to have the 256 bit versions of shows, but this one's a repeat from a few years back.

Thanks for all you do

Re-post as many and as often as you want. Your picks are fabulous and have aided me in reconstructing and updating my files on the Band (once again :-)

Rock On!
