Dead Show/podcast for 1/27/17

This week the Deadpod continues with the band's performance on January 3rd, 1970 with the late show from that evening at the Fillmore East.
I'm sure you'll enjoy this fine performance. I am especially enamored with everything from the Other One particular Black Peter and Dire Wolf.
What an encore as well! Be sure and enjoy Tom Constanten on organ as he wouldn't be with the boys much longer..

Dead Show/podcast for 1/20/17

This week's Deadpod features a show just released by the esteemed Charlie Miller, 1/3/70 Fillmore East.
While I realize that I just played a show from this great year back around Christmas, I think this one more than merits your attention this week. Here at the beginning of what would be a seminal  year in their development the band puts on a jamming clinic - especially in this Alligator in the early show!

 While there are some issues with the recording I hope you find it enjoyable.
If I hear no objections, I'll bring you the late show next week..

Grateful Dead - January 3, 1970

Me And My Uncle

Dead Show/podcast for 1/13/17

This week's Deadpod, featuring the second set from the band's performance on January 2nd, 1972 features Pigpen giving us a fantastic Good Lovin' to open the set in his next to last Bay Area performance. The band really cooks behind him on this one, I'm sure you'll enjoy this. The rest of the set is quite good as well, and what the set lacks in length it does make up for in quality. While the Not Fade Away->Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad->Not Fade Away is not as unusual as the Good Lovin' ->China Cat Sunflower->Good Lovin' to open the set it is almost as excellent.
This is a harbinger of what will be one of the most outstanding years in the band's history.

Dead Show/podcast for 1/6/17

For the first Deadpod of 2017, I decided to go back to the first show of 1972.. January 2nd, 1972.. As Bill Graham says in his introduction 'there aren't many groups that would get us to come out on January 2nd'.. but I bet the folks who came out on this night were glad they did as they turn in a sparkling performance, highlighted, for me, by some great work by Pigpen.
At the beginning of what will be a monumental year in Dead history, the band brings us a ripping first set which we are fortunate to have in a great soundboard recording. Mr. Charlie, Jack Straw, Big Railroad Blues and Next Time You See Me are just a few of the highlights here. Playing in the Band is here as a first set number; it hadn't yet developed into the monster jam vehicle it would become later in the  year, but still nicely played. I'll bring us set 2 next week..
