Dead Show/podcast for 6/2/17

Once in awhile I stumble upon a request that for some odd reason or other I never got around to playing .. that's what happened this week and that chance discovery leads to the happy selection for this week's Deadpod, June 19th, 1976 from Passaic New Jersey. While this concert was broadcast on FM radio, and many of you may have had it on tape, I think the quality of the performance merits its' selection for the Deadpod. The band, recently coming out of its 'retirement', performs most of these songs flawlessly. I really enjoy the exploration in 'Slipknot' and Garcia throughout. Certainly they are tighter and more controlled during much of this first set, but the 'Playin' in the Band' which closes this first set and clocks in at just under 18 minutes, brings back the great jamming of the earlier 70s Dead.
