Dead Show/podcast for 8/26/16

This week's Deadpod, a request from a supporter of the show, comes to us from Long Beach CA, on August 28th, 1981. They open with "Jack Straw" (the beginning here is patched from an audience source).. and Bob does the 'we used to play for silver now we play for Clive" line.. but still a solid effort as is most of the first set. I'm particulary fond of the Big River, Althea and the closing 'Let It Grow'->China ->Rider which is an unusual first set ending.

Long Beach Arena, Long Beach, CA (8/28/81)

Fun set! They started out a little "lyrically challenged" during the first song; but, they righted the ship quite nicely. =)

Unusually peppy tempos and stacato leads. Very nice. Also Jerry G in fine voice here; "Brown Eyed Women" is particularly revelatory.
