    This week we welcome December with a great show from December 13, 1980 at the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach California, just a couple months after last week's acoustic set. This first set is quite good all the way through but starts with an excellent trifecta -' Feel Like a Stranger' into a wonderful 'Sugaree'  then into 'C C Rider' with some great Garcia slide work. Then Jerry slows things down a bit with a soulful 'To Lay Me Down'. A fine version of 'Minglewood' follows with some unusual and impressive guitar work as well as Brent really going off on the B3.  'Ramble on Rose' is always a favorite, then a nice 'Sailor> Saint'. They close the set with a rockin' 'Deal'.      Grateful Dead Long Beach Arena Long Beach, CA 12/13/80 - Saturday      One     Feel Like A Stranger [7:06] > Sugaree [11:28] > C C Rider [8:14] ; To Lay Me Down [9:42] ; New Minglewood Blues [6:39#] ; Ramble On Rose [7:04] ; Lost Sailor [6:06] > Saint Of Circumstance [6:41] > Deal [6:50]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod120321.mp3    I hope this finds you healthy and in the holiday spirit.  Happy Hanukkah ! thank you for your support of the Deadpod.

    Happy Thanksgiving!  As always, an acoustic Dead set is on the menu for today, a thank you to all of you for your support of the Deadpod! This lovely recording is from Betty Cantor's reels and is a fine representation of the band's acoustic work during this period. This is from the Warfield in San Francisco on September 27, 1980.  While this recording is missing the 'Dire Wolf' opener that appears on most lists for this show, the remainder of the set is of wonderful quality; with the possible exception of some odd sounds in the Bird Song'. Nevertheless I'm sure that you'll enjoy this one if you're a fan of the acoustic Dead.   Grateful Dead Warfield Theatre San Francisco, CA 9/27/80 - Saturday One The Race Is On Jack-A-Roe Monkey And The Engineer It Must Have Been The Roses Dark Hollow Bird Song To Lay Me Down On The Road Again Oh Babe It Ain't No Lie > Ripple     You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod112521.mp3  My thanks and gratitude go out to all of you who listen to and support the Deadpod. It is a privilege to be able to share the music with all of you kind folks.  I wish you all a very healthy and happy holiday!

    This week we have a 'rare and different' tune indeed. The second set from the band's performance in Cleveland begins unlike any other in the band's storied history. They come out and drop into a free-form, unique jam that winds it way through any number of modes, but is sure to take you with it if you allow it to. A short 'Drums' kicks in once the jam reaches a high point, but then they return to the jam until eventually moving into a slow but heartfelt 'JackARoe'. A energized 'Playin' In the Band' follows, one that is full of Phil bombs and lots of deep jazzy modes which reminds the listener of a version from 1972. They move into a funky and fun 'Shakedown Street' then drop into the third and final performance of 'If I Had The World To Give'. Here Garcia is intimate and heartfelt, and one wishes we could have had this tune more often in their rotation. They slowly  move back into the 'Playin' reprise, building up the energy until they slide into the set closing 'Around and Around'. A short, but beautiful set - I hope you dig it!    Grateful Dead Cleveland Music Hall Cleveland, OH  11/20/78 - Monday Set 2 jam> drums> Jack-a-Roe> Playin' in the Band> Shakedown Street> drums> If I Had the World to Give> Playin' in the Band> Around and Around You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod111921.mp3    thankful for my kind friends and listeners without whom I could not do the Deadpod..

    From a show I was lucky enough to see, in a beautiful venue, this week's Deadpod takes us to Cleveland for a show back on November 20, 1978 at the Cleveland Music Hall.  This is a very interesting and well played show. The second set, which we will hear next week, is most unique, but this first set is certainly worth hearing, despite some obvious flaws in the recording.  The opening Mississippi Half-Step into a fine Franklin's Tower clocks in at over 20 minutes, and features some fine jamming by Garcia. I'm a fan of the Roses, and while 'Looks Like Rain' suffers from a tape flip, its still nice to hear. An early 'Stagger Lee' follows, then a fine ' Passenger' and a long sweet, 'Peggy O'. The closing 'Lazy Lightnin'>Supplication' is perhaps the highlight of this set; listen for Jerry's great solos here.   Grateful Dead Cleveland Music Hall Cleveland, OH 11/20/78 - Monday     One     Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo [9:10] > Franklin's Tower [11:38] ; Mama Tried [2:30] > Mexicali Blues [3:44] ; It Must Have Been The Roses [7:33] ; Looks Like Rain [7:33] ; Stagger Lee [6:47] ; Passenger [4:21] ; Peggy-O [9:02] ; Lazy Lightnin' [3:36] > Supplication [5:41]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod111221.mp3  My thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod.

     I think anytime I come across an excellent sounding tape from 1970 it is a real treat. There are so few great tapes from that year and the band is having so much fun that when I do I want to share. So this week here is one from the Fillmore East on November 16, 1970.  There are some anomalies - there is some Elton John music playing through the house PA at one point - don't freak out ! :) I had to leave it in just to keep the atmosphere of the venue and the date.   I love hearing Pigpen here as well as the energy which just explodes through this music.  I hope you dig it too..   Grateful Dead Fillmore East New York, NY 11/16/70 Partial Show Bill Graham intro>Casey Jones                        [05:01] Me and My Uncle                                      [04:37] House P.A.

    Happy Halloween Weekend!  I think we have a great Deadpod to share this week with the second set from the show on October 28, 1979 at the Cape Cod Coliseum in South Yarmouth MA.  This one starts with a really great China>Rider, the energy is off the charts and I really love hearing the Phil bombs and the Jerry's fan outs in Rider. This one is bound to bring a smile and make you wish you were shaking your bones! They follow with a most excellent Samson and Delilah (being Sunday:) and only show it down a bit with the Ship of Fools that follows. Neverfear, a massive 'Playin In the Band' follows with plenty of intricate interplay and jamming.  A fairly short drums and space leads into a 'Stella Blue' then they close things out with a 'Sugar Magnolia' followed by a 'US Blues' encore.  Great stuff.. I hope you enjoy it!      Grateful Dead Cape Cod Coliseum South Yarmouth, MA  10/28/79 - Sunday      Two     China Cat Sunflower [7:20] > I Know You Rider [7:25] ; Samson And Delilah [7:35] ; Ship Of Fools [7:40] ; Playing In The Band [19:08] > Drums [7:#23] > Space [4:12] > Stella Blue [8:27] > Sugar Magnolia [8:27] Encore     U.S. Blues [5:26]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod102921.mp3    Have a safe and spectacular Halloween!  Be well and thank you for your kind support!

    When the same show gets requested by two different listeners the same week I pay attention.. and I must say I am quite pleased to be able to present this request on this week's Deadpod.  This comes to us from a show played on Sunday, October 28, 1979 at the Cape Cod Coliseum at South Yarmouth MA. You know the old saying about never missing a Sunday show - well this one certainly proves that old adage! It starts out just nuts with a great Mississippi Half-Step .. which Jerry and the boys jam out for over 13 minutes! That however is just the start as they flow into a amazing Franklin's Tower which runs almost another 18 minutes! Listen to the wonderful and unique interplay between Phil and Jerry here, its really lovely.  The rest of this set is no sleeper either. Even the more pedestrian tunes, like Mama Tried and Mexicali, are played with a real energy and drive. Ramble on Rose is a favorite of mine here, as is the closing, 10 minute 'Music Never Stopped'..      Grateful Dead Cape Cod Coliseum South Yarmouth, MA  10/28/79 - Sunday      One     Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo [13:27] > Franklin's Tower [17:41] ; Mama Tried [2:31] > Mexicali Blues [4:24] ; Althea [7:48] ; Passenger [5:14] ; Ramble On Rose [7:49] ; The Music Never Stopped [9:36]    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod102221.mp3   thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod!  Be well and happy!

    What a great Scarlet>Fire on this week's Deadpod!  This comes to us from the second set of the band's performance at Madison Square Gardin on October 14, 1994.  This opening Scarlet>Fire is clearly the highlight of the show, clocking in at over 30 minutes of intensive, improvisational joy. You probably won't believe that they could hit on all cylinders like this at this point of the band's history but just sit back and enjoy. I am particularly impressed by the pace of the arrangement and how they don't take a breath through this.. amazing. You can hear some of the loud, standing ovation the crowd sent back after the end of Fire.. The rest of the set for the most part is no slouch either. I enjoyed Bobby's 'Look Like Rain' and while 'Samba' is one I'd rather skip, I am happy to include 'Corrina' which features a nice jam into Drums and Space. 'Attics' always provides an emotional hit, and while we can hear how far Jerry has aged here and in the 'Liberty' encore, I feel this one is well worth hearing. I hope you do too.    Grateful Dead Madison Square Garden New York , NY 10/14/94 - Friday Two     Scarlet Begonias [9:14] > Fire On The Mountain [22:03] ; Looks Like Rain [8:05] ; Samba In The Rain [6:51] ; Corrina [17:02] > Drums > Space [17:18] > I Need A Miracle [5:16] > Attics Of My Life [5:23] > Turn On Your Love Light [5:43] Encore     Liberty [5:45]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod101521.mp3  Thank you for listening.

    This week I decided to venture where I seldom go - with a show from the fall of 1994. While this first set is quite short, I believe as a whole this is perhaps one of the band's best from this period.  This first starts with a very nice 'Jack Straw' and the 'West LA Fadeaway' that follows is also quite good. I'm a sucker for these 'Lazy River Road' versions, even when Jerry flubs them a bit. Bob follows that with an accoustic version of 'El Paso', which he did quite often on this tour.  'Ramble on Rose' is always a big hit in the Garden, and they close this short set with Phil 'singing' 'Box of Rain'.    Grateful Dead Madison Square Garden New York , NY 10/14/94 - Friday      One      Jack Straw [5:44]    West L.A.

    This week we return to Munich for a second set that is ferocious from start to finish. 'Bertha' leads this one off and goes into a truly rockin' 'Samson and Delilah' that really roars. Jerry slows things down a touch with 'Ship of Fools', but they go into a nice extended jam in the 'Estimated Prophet' that follows. That one builds again to a gale force as they go into 'Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad'. I'm also fond of the jam in 'Space' and how Weir leads them into 'Not Fade Away'.  'Stella Blue' is as usual quite a pleasure to hear, and the closing 'rockers' that follow are still hot, if just a touch ragged on the transition into 'Good Lovin' All in all a classic very high energy Dead set.     Grateful Dead Olympia Halle Munich, West Germany 10/12/81 - Monday Two     Bertha [7:07] > Samson And Delilah [7:31] ; Ship Of Fools [8:37] ; Estimated Prophet [16:08] > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad [5:04#] > Never Trust A Woman > Drums [#5:42] > Jam [2:04] > Space [3:15] > Not Fade Away [11:22] > Stella Blue [12:22] > Around And Around [3:45] > Good Lovin' [8:07#] Encore     U.S. Blues   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod100121.mp3    Thank you so much for your kind support of the Deadpod!    "Seasons change and roses die...

    This week we stay on the Continent for a show that took place on October 12, 1981 at the Olympia Halle in Munich, West Germany during the band's Fall European Tour. For the most part this is quite an excellent recording, although it does have a couple patches..  They come out firing on an up-tempo 'Jack Straw', then Garcia delivers a more laid back selection with a pretty 'Candyman'. The 'Little Red Rooster' that follows is one of my favorite versions of this tune they delivered - check it out! Brent is all over these songs, if you are a fan you're going to enjoy this set.

    This week's Deadpod features the fine recording of the second set of the band's performance on September 20, 1974 in Paris France.  This one is pretty sweet all the way through, starting with 'China Cat>I Know You Rider'. The 'Big River' that follows is nicely up tempo. Another highlight for me is the 'Brokedown Palace' which is placed right in the center of the set and features some great closing vocals. 'Truckin' is the most exploratory moment of the set, with Billy alternating with Phil and Jerry, to get out to some deep space, before returning back to Earth as they enter in a somewhat shorter 'Eyes of the World'. Straight ahead rocking Dead closes the set which I hope you'll find as enjoyable as I did.   Grateful Dead Palais des Sports Paris, France 9/20/74 - Friday     Two     China Cat Sunflower [9:42] > I Know You Rider [5:01] ; Big River [5:10] ; Brown Eyed Women ; Greatest Story Ever Told [4:30] ; Brokedown Palace ; Truckin' [17:45] > Eyes Of The World [16:04] > Not Fade Away [11:#10] > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad [7:00] > One More Saturday Night [2:40#] Encore      U.S. Blues   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod091721.mp3  thanks for listening and for your kind support of the Deadpod!

The band opens with a spirited 'Cumberland Blues' followed by a nice 'Jack Straw'. The first-set 'Scarlet Begonias' features some very nice Phil leads. Bobby's vocals are top-notch on the 'Black Throated Wind' that follows. The 'Friend of the Devil' that is performed afterwards, is one of the last 'fast' versions the band played. We get to hear a full 'Weather Report Suite' highlighted by some nice keyboard work by Keith. Jerry follows with a soulful 'Stella Blue'.

    We have a great second set for your Labor Day weekend enjoyment! This one is from the Greek Theater on August 19, 1989. This one certainly goes against the old thought that the band didn't really jam it out at the Greek.. We start with a fine 'China>Rider'.. the transition really catches fire! A wonderful opener, which then leads right into 'Playin' In the Band'.. the jamming here into a long, pretty, 'Uncle John's' is quite exploratory.  Always a delight, this version of 'Uncle John's' is pretty straight-ahead but nicely paced and sung. The transition into Drums>Space is quite well done. Space is quite exploratory and the accounts which I read say that Candace's lights and effects sync'd quite well to create the spaceship effect :)  The transition into a smoking 'Other One' is on point, including a great Phil bomb. Healy does his effects on Weir's voice but they mostly work here. This is a great Other One! It leads to an explosive finish!  In the ballad slot, Jerry brings out August West.. enough said.. they fly away beautifully.  They close the set with a spirited 'Not Fade Away', then return for a rare 'Foolish Heart' encore.

    This week I came across a fun show from August 19, 1989 at the Greek Theater in Berkeley California. The opener is so much fun -when you listen you just know you're in for a treat. A great 'Jack Straw' follows, played just at the right tempo :)  Brent follows with 'We Can Run' - and its hard not to reflect on how little has changed.. 'Tennessee Jed' is always a good time, and Jerry really rips it up. Bobby belts out 'It's All Over Now' and then a great version of 'Loser' follows.

    This week's second set from Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City NJ, is one of the best of that year, in my opinion. It starts out with a smokin' Help>Slip>Frank, the Slipknot here is particularly great. A wonderful summertime 'Dancing In the Street' follows, then 'The Wheel', and 'Samson'.. again Phil is way up in the mix and I only wish I could hear him so well more often.. 'Roses' follows, with the '76 tempo.. personally I wish Donna was a bit farther up in the mix here.  The rest of the set is classic Dead, starting off with a rockin' 'Not Fade Away' into Drums, then a wonderful, exploratory jam leading into the 'Other One'. This one knocks my socks off. Ship of Fools and Sugar Mag close the set with a Johnny B. Goode encore.        Grateful Dead Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City, NJ 8/4/76 - Wednesday Two     Help On The Way [6:20] > Slipknot!

    This week the Deadpod stays right in Jersey City, for this wonderful show from August of 1976. This show too, took place at Roosevelt Stadium on August 4, 1976.  We start out with a long, dreamy 'Sugaree' - clocking in at over 14 minutes. Jerry is in good voice at this show, and you will notice that Phil is quite up front in this recording as well. These songs are all played at the slower pace characteristic of 1976, but I find the recording as well as the ensemble work quite pleasing.  Other highlights for me include a lovely 'Row Jimmy' and a sweet 'Looks like Rain', Donna's voice here is quite lovely and compliments Bobby so well. 'Loser' is a personal favorite, always.  A rockin' 'Music Never Stops' is followed by a great version of 'Scarlet Begonias'. This version, not yet coupled with 'Fire on the Mountain', displays some unique twists in this almost 15 minute version.   Grateful Dead Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City, NJ 8/4/76 - Wednesday One     Sugaree [14:12] New Minglewood Blues [6:00] Row Jimmy [11:34] Big River [5:50] Loser [9:44    ] Looks Like Rain [7:30] They Love Each Other [6:59] The Music Never Stopped [6:25] Scarlet Begonias [14:59]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod081321.mp3    Be well, be safe.. and as always my thanks for making the Deadpod possible..

    While Jerry's birthday is not until Sunday, I felt that there could be no better way to start off the 'Days Between' than with this humdinger of a show from August 1st, 1973. I realize this is only days after last week's Deadpod fom Watkins Glen, but, hey its one of the few, and probably the greatest of Jerry's Birthday show with the band. Now this version of the events is captured on what I feel is an excellent audience recording. The existing soundboard, especially for this first set, is fairly degraded and I think this audience recording is quite good - I hope you agree.  I'm a fan of the 'Sugaree' here, as well as Donna's  'You Ain't Woman Enough' which is a crowd pleaser. The 'Bird Song' that follows is excellent and features two nice jams. The rest of the set is quite well played, with the set ending with an unusually fine 'Casey Jones'.  Next week I'll play set 2 - which will include a beautiful soundboard capture of a wonderful Dark Star.   Grateful Dead Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City, NJ 8/1/73 - Wednesday     One     [59:33] ; The Promised Land [3:02] ; Sugaree [7:51] ; The Race Is On [2:57] ; You Ain't Woman Enough [3:04] ; Bird Song [10:51] ; Mexicali Blues [3:19] ; They Love Each Other [5:07] ; Jack Straw [4:39] ; Stella Blue [7:23] ; Big River [4:38] ; Casey Jones [6:42]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod073021.mp3  This show took place on Garcia's 31st birthday..

    I originally thought I would play Brent Mydland's last show with the band - 7/23/1990 - but at the last moment decided I would bring you something much happier - the famous soundcheck from the Watkins Glen festival that took place on July 27, 1973.  Long a favorite among Deadheads, you've likely heard this before - but this is one of those performances that deserve to be listened to again from time to time - like using that good china that is collecting dust in the cabinet. This is a fine recording of the complete soundcheck - including Bill Graham's introduction - that captures what made this band so exciting during this peak period of their evolution.  Only a few words are needed here as this will speak for itself.. listen to how animated Phil is right out of the gate - he drives that Promised Land and continues throughout! Bird Song has some wonderful moments where the band starts to take off into uncharted territory - a harbinger of things to come.  Of course the 'star' here is the jam following Uncle.. this is paradigmatic Grateful Dead - unexpected, new, never to be repeated. The 'Wharf Rat' that follows is just what is needed to bring things back to earth.. then !bang!

Phil is all over this. They follow up with the very last performance of 'You Win Again'. 'El Paso' follows but things get sharp again with Half Step and Greatest Story Ever Told (albeit with a Donna wail). 'Tomorrow Is Forever' is the 2nd of 10 played in 72. Truckin' follows and turns into a monster jam with the Other One jam coming in around the 21 minute mark. This leads to the last 'Baby Blue' until 1974.

The first show of a three night run, this features some great guitar work by Garcia throughout, even here in the first set.

    Happy 4th of July!  This week we present the second set of the band's performance from Anchorage Alaska on the summer solstice, June 21, 1980.  This is a fine setlist, and most of the songs are quite well-played. I think 'Big Railroad Blues' is a great opener, and the Samson and Delilah' that follows is quite swell. The pre-drums 'Terrapin' has a wonderful segue into the jammin' 'Playin' in the Band'.  Post-drums suffers a bit, but 'Stella Blue' is always a pleasure, and the band gave the fans in the Last Frontier, a nice double encore, with the obligatory 'One More Saturday Night' followed by a somewhat rate for the time period, 'Brokedown Palace'.      Grateful Dead West High Auditorium Anchorage, AK 6/21/80 - Saturday Two     Big Railroad Blues [4:26] ; Samson And Delilah [7:43] ; Terrapin Station [11:59] > Playing In The Band [13:45] > Drums [7:#34] > Space [4:52] > Truckin' [8:54] > Stella Blue [9:25] > Sugar Magnolia [8:44] Encore     One More Saturday Night > Brokedown Palace  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod070221.mp3  I hope you have a joyful and safe holiday!  thank you for your support of the Deadpod!

    A summer solstice show to celebrate the arrival of summer, this comes to us from the band's only trip to Alaska back on June 21, 1980. This first set opens with a strong 'Sugaree', and Jerry continues to light it up on the Minglewood that follows. In fact most of these first set songs are quite strong and fast paced, I'd particularly call your attention to the 'Lazy Lightni'>Supplication', Brent's work on 'Far From Me' and the closing 'Feel Like a Stranger' all of which really work well.  1980 was a very good year, in my opinion, and while this may not be one of the very best shows of the year, it is a pleasure to listen to and I hope you enjoy it..

    This week we present the second set from the band's historic run at RFK Stadiuim in Washington D. C. the weekend of June 9, 1973.  This is a fine, long, wall-of-sound, show and it's no wonder that it ranked highly in Dick Latvala's estimation (https://gdsets.com/latvala/1973_06_09.jpg).  While there is some confusion over the exact start of this setlist, I'm choosing to include the Greatest Story Ever Told as the opener. The band then moves into an excellent China>Rider, although some have thought that Jerry was a bit too 'relaxed' in singing the 'wish I was a headlight' line. The 'He's Gone' that follows is slow and soulful, but the pace picks up in the 'Truckin' that follows. If you listen to the transition into the excellent 'Playin' In the Band' that follows you'll hear a nod to 'Here Comes Sunshine' .. while there is no drums/space in this set, the jam that happens in 'Playin' is an excellent substitute.  Of the rest of the set, 'Big River' is very hot, and the 'Eyes of the World' is just exactly perfect. The 'China Doll' that follows is soulful, to say the least. Sugar Magnolia follows, I'm not sure if that was an encore or whether they were simply exhausted on this hot, humid day in D.C.   Grateful Dead RFK Stadium Washington, DC 6/9/73 - Saturday Two      Greatest Story Ever Told China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; He's Gone [14:12] > Truckin' [12:09] > Playing In The Band [20:19#] ; Loser [6:07] ; Me And My Uncle [2:52] ; Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo [6:36] ; Big River [4:15] ; Eyes Of The World [11:21] > China Doll [5:23] ; Sugar Magnolia [7:01#]    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod061821.mp3   Have a fabulous week! and thanks for your kind support!

    This week we bring you a fine recording of an often overlooked gem from the Summer of 1973. This comes to us from RFK Stadium in Washington DC on Saturday, June 9, 1973. This date is often overlooked in favor of the next day (which we played back in '08). On both dates, the band shared the bill with the Allman Brothers. On this very hot day, the Dead opened, and played two excellent sets.  The first set, which we'll hear this week, while not featuring any extended jams, nevertheless delivers some fantastic versions of many of their favorites. As with most shows from '73 there are too many treats to mention here, however I would advise you to listen in particular to the 'Loose Lucy'. With a flub on the last verse, Garcia leads the boys on an excellent blues flavored jam, which for me is the highlight  of the set. Phil delivers a wonderful vocal performance on 'Box of Rain' as well.   Grateful Dead RFK Stadium Washington, DC 6/9/73 - Saturday  One      The Promised Land ; Deal ; Looks Like Rain ; They Love Each Other ; Jack Straw ; Loose Lucy ; Mexicali Blues ; Row Jimmy ; El Paso ; Box Of Rain ; Sugaree ; Beat It On Down The Line ; Tennessee Jed  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod061121.mp3  A great example of the wonders of the Wall of Sound!  thank you for your kind support of the Deadpod. itu

There are two very nice Brent tunes here - a good version of 'Blow Away' and a sweet 'I Will Take You Home' out of space.  Jerry delivers a perfect version of 'Wharf Rat' out of  'The Other One' and the 'Lovelight' provides a great rocking ending to the set.

The band appeared with several other groups (most notably perhaps John Fogerty who Bobby and Jerry shared the stage with), and this set features Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band on much of the songs. The first set features some uptempo numbers including an opening 'Touch of Gray' and an excellent 'Iko, Iko' Brent and Phil are front and center here as well, and while Clarence isn't everyone's cup of tea here, I personally enjoy his contributions not only on Iko, but on Bird Song and Promised Land especially..    Grateful Dead Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Stadium Oakland, CA 5/27/89 - Saturday     One     Touch Of Grey ; Greatest Story Ever Told ; Althea ; Walkin' Blues ; Iko Iko (1) ; Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again (1) ; Bird Song (1) ; The Promised Land (1) In Concert Against Aids.

This features an unusual setlist starting with an unexpected and rather powerful 'Lazy Lightning', and then, after some lyrical stumbles, goes into a heated 'Supplication'. 'It Must Have Been the Roses' starts out somewhat slowly but builds to a very nice finish. An excellent 'Samson and Delilah' follows, with Phil throwing out some snappy bass lines. The band then moves into the jamming portion of the show, with 'Saint Stephen' followed by a neat little jam before heading into a powerful 'Not Fade Away'. Drums moves into a dark murky place before we hear the opening chords of a fine 'Wharf Rat' which follows. They then move into the 'Not Fade Away' reprise, then a short 'Saint Stephen' reprise before closing the set, a bit clumsily, with 'Around and Around'.  The encore however is quite a treat, as they return for a intense and powerful 'Morning Dew'.   Grateful Dead Mershon Auditorium - Ohio State University Columbus, OH 9/30/76 - Thursday Two     Lazy Lightnin' [3:15] > Supplication [4:49] It Must Have Been The Roses [7:08] Samson And Delilah [7:36] ; Saint Stephen [4:52] > Jam [5:23] > Not Fade Away [7:43] > Drums [5:49] > Wharf Rat [11:#14] > Not Fade Away [3:43] > Saint Stephen [0:57] > Around And Around [6:52] Encore     Morning Dew [13:58]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod052121.mp3   Thank you for your kind support.    "Love is real, Not Fade Away"

    I'm going to shuffle the deck a little bit and bring you a real treat, a show from the fall of 1976. This comes to us from September 30, 1976 at Mershon Auditorium at The Ohio State University. This special request from a friend of the Deadpod features a fantastic first set. The opening 'Music Never Stopped' is quite unique - and features some wonderful playing by Garcia in the cresendo leading into a sweet 'Sugaree'.  'Looks Like Rain' has a nice interplay between Bob and Donna, and 'El Paso' has a nice galloping tempo thanks to Phil.

    This week's Deadpod brings us the second set of the band's fine performance at Cal Expo on May 4, 1991. They continue what has been a solid show, opening with the perhaps odd choice of 'Victim or the Crime'. That darkness has to give however as they then move onto a wonderful 'Crazy Fingers' and 'Playin In the Band'. It sounds for a bit at the end of the latter that they will move into Drums, but Jerry and Phil instead turn the sound around to a nice version of  'Uncle John's Band'.  Post-drums features a strong 'Miracle' into a fine version of 'Standing on the Moon'. I find this to be a great version of this powerful tune, as Garcia and company show how they've infused this song with the power and passion that makes it one of the great later day ballads in their repertoire.  Being Saturday, they then close the set with 'One More Saturday Night' and return with a 'Touch' encore.  I think its a fine set and hope you enjoy it as well.  Grateful Dead Cal Expo Amphitheatre Sacramento, CA  5/4/91 - Saturday Two     Victim Or The Crime ; Crazy Fingers ; Playing In The Band ; Uncle John's Band > Drums > Space > I Need A Miracle > Standing On The Moon ; One More Saturday Night Encore     Touch Of Grey  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod050721.mp3    'oh oh what I want to know, where does the time go?"   thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod

    This week on the Deadpod we feature a Kentucky Derby Day performance by the band back in 1991. This was at Cal Expo, in Sacramento California on May 4, 1991.  The band starts out hard and tight with a roaring 'Hell In a Bucket'. They are without Hornsby here, and in some ways sound tighter and more together (although I'm well aware that opinions differ on how Vince sounds here). The 'Sugaree' that follows is very good, with Garcia really ramping it up in the solo.  I think that the version of 'The Race Is On' here is a real winner. 'Row Jimmy' is always fun to hear and they also feature 'New Speedway Boogie' which they broke out during the Spring tour that year.   Grateful Dead Cal Expo Amphitheater Sacramento, CA  5/4/91 - Saturday One     Hell In A Bucket ; Sugaree ; New Minglewood Blues ; Loser ; The Race Is On ; Row Jimmy ; When I Paint My Masterpiece ; New Speedway Boogie ; The Music Never Stopped  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod043021.mp3  Hoping you have a fine Derby weekend, and a fine May to follow!  thanks for your support

    This week the Deadpod goes back to the Spring of 1969 for a set the Dead played in Chicago at a place either called 'The Electric Theater' or the 'Kinetic Playground' depending on where you look :)  While this is a short set, the story goes that the Velvet Underground was on the same bill, and played before the Dead. Apparently they played a very long set and the Dead were left with only enough time for a short set. The story goes that the Dead returned the favor the next night...  Their set opens with a rather sloppy 'Hard To Handle' - apparently Jerry was experimenting with using the pedal steel on this one, and it doesn't come off so well. 'Doin' That Rag' follows and has a nice jam in it, but they really get going with the 'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl' that follows  - some classic Pigpen here and throughout. An early 'Morning Dew' follows, then, unfortunately, Bobby's Yellow Dog story.  The set closes with two excellent pieces, 'Sitting on Top of the World' and and a great 'Lovelight'.    Grateful Dead Electric Theater Chicago, IL 4/25/69 - Friday One - Hard to Handle [4:25] % Doin' That Rag [7:32] % Good Morning Little Schoolgirl [11:28] % Morning Dew [7:32] % Yellow dog story [1:58] % Sitting on Top of the World [3:46] % Turn On Your Love Light [23:30]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod042321.mp3   Have a great week! and thanks for your support!

    We have a very fine second set this week from the Grateful Dead's performance at the Hartford Civic Center on April 18, 1982. While the show is known for the famous 'Earthquake Space' that Phil creates following drums, the interplay throughout is wonderful from all the members of the band and this fine recording captures that fun and joy completely. I would draw your attention in particular to the wonderful 'Samson and Delilah' here. Bob and Jerry really spice this one up wonderfully. It's a fine set list in its entirety including a nice 'Playin' In the Band' and 'Eyes of the World', the later a bit faster than its 70s versions but still having the capacity to make our spirts soar.  The post-drums setlist is no snoozer either, with 'The Other One' leading into a fine 'Black Peter'. 'Sugar Mag' leads into a nice 'Playin' reprise, and they end with a spirited 'Sugar Magnolia'. After all this I think they can be excused for the 'Don't Ease' encore ;)      Grateful Dead Hartford Civic Center Hartford, CT 4/18/82 - Sunday   Two     Cold Rain And Snow > Samson And Delilah ; Ship Of Fools ; Playing In The Band > Eyes Of The World > Drums > Space (1) > The Other One > Black Peter > Sugar Magnolia > Playing In The Band > Sunshine Daydream Encore     Don't Ease Me In Comments     (1) Earthquake Space  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  https://bit.ly/3dkRkB9 I hope this finds everyone doing well and feeling the warmth of Spring.  thank you for your kind support!

    This week we have the first set of a legendary show from April 18, 1982 in Hartford CT. Those of you familiar with either the history of the Grateful Dead or of San Francisco know that April 18, 1906 was the date of the great San Francisco Earthquake, and this show is famous for its legendary 'Earthquake Space'. Since I prefer presenting complete shows, and since this first set is quite good on its own merits, we'll hear it this week, and the second set, complete with the 'earthquake space' next. This one starts with a rocking 'Bertha' into 'Promised Land'. A pretty 'Friend of the Devil' leads into a rather mellow 'CC Rider'. 'Ramble on Rose' is notable for how great Jerry's voice sounds. After the cowboy polka, 'Althea' is a favorite of mine. 'Big Railroad Blues' has Brent really hitting the mark, I think you'll enjoy it, and the 'Let It Grow' is probably the highlight of this set.   Grateful Dead Hartford Civic Center Hartford, CT 4/18/82 - Sunday One Bertha > The Promised Land ; Friend Of The Devil > C C Rider ; Ramble On Rose ; Me And My Uncle > Mexicali Blues ; Althea > Looks Like Rain ; Big Railroad Blues ; Let It Grow You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod040921.mp3

    This week we are fortunate enough to hear the second set of the band's fine performance from March 20, 1977 at the Winterland in San Francisco. A Sunday show, this set starts out appropriately enough with a great 'Samson and Delilah'. A beautiful 'Row Jimmy' follows with very soulful Garcia vocals. The heart of this set comes with the St. Stephen>Other One> Stella Blue combo. Following the excellent St. Stephen, Phil drops into 'The Other One' on a dime. This one contains some great jamming, and in particular the ending where Garcia develops a unique and beautiful transition to the wonderful 'Stella Blue'. They rock it out after that but close with a nice double encore, including the fifth time they play 'Terrapin'..   Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 3/20/77 - Sunday Two Samson And Delilah [8:17] ; Row Jimmy [10:00] ; The Promised Land [4:05] ; Saint Stephen [9:49] > The Other One [14:48] > Stella Blue [8:57] ; Around And Around [7:58] Encore U.S. Blues [5:57] ; Terrapin Station [10:47] You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod040221.mp3 My thanks for your kind support.

    Spring has sprung a bit earlier than usual here in the north, and it's a perfect time to break out the sweet, silky sounds of the Grateful Dead from 1977.. Here's a beauty from March 20, 1977 at the Winterland in San Francisco.  As usual its marked by the extremely smooth and intricate ensemble playing that characterize the year. The band is clearly paying attention to and responding to each other. I'd argue that every song in this first set has its moments - there's even a fun little Jerry run in El Paso. Deal builds and builds to a rousing climax. Cassidy shows off a beautiful arrangement highlighting every member's contribution to the whole. Peggy-O is slow and sweet, love Keith's piano here and Jerry has some runs I've not heard before.  It seems unfair not to single out each of these songs for their beauty..this is a remarkably nice recording as well,  but I just want to also point to the stand-alone Scarlet Begonias that ends this first set.   Never miss a Sunday show )      Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 3/20/77 - Sunday     One     New Minglewood Blues [4:46] ; Ramble On Rose [7:35] ; El Paso [4:12] ; Deal [5:32] ; Cassidy [4:29] ; Peggy-O [7:15] ; Beat It On Down The Line [3:41] ; Brown Eyed Women [5:18] ; Estimated Prophet [8:01] ; Scarlet Begonias [12:45]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod032621.mp3  Thank you for your kind support of the Deadpod!  "Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light Rising up to paradise, I know I'm gonna shine"

    This week's Deadpod features an outstanding second set (only) from March 13, 1982 in Reno Nevada.  While I wish there existed a soundboard of the first set to match this exquisite recording I decided there was no reason not to let you enjoy this great set because it didn't exist.  This set starts out with a powerful reading of 'Feel Like a Stranger' into 'Franklin's Tower'. Jerry is all over both of these with some really sparkling runs, and Brent has come into his own by this time as a member of the band and shines throughout. This show took place the night after John Belushi's death, and that might account for the aborted 'He's Gone' that follows 'Estimated', the band instead going into a beautiful 'Eyes of the World'.   Drums and Space are quite good as well, pay particular attention to the jam leading into 'The Other One' where many locate a 'Lucy in the Skies' or 'Dear Prudence' jam..  The mournful 'Black Peter' seems a good fit on this evening before the band closes out with the rockin' 'Around and Around' and 'Good Lovin' The 'Don't Ease' encore is missing from this tape, unfortunately.      Grateful Dead Centennial Coliseum Reno, NV 3/13/82 - Saturday Two     Feel Like A Stranger > Franklin's Tower > Estimated Prophet > Eyes Of The World > Drums > Space > The Other One > Black Peter  > Around And Around > Good Lovin'    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod031921.mp3  "I want to say to my sisters and my brothers Keep the faith When the storm flies and the wind blows Go on at a steady pace"

    Here's a fine set of music for your Friday courtesy of the Grateful Dead back on February 22, 1974.We continue from last week with the second of three sets that the band favored us with to begin their quintessential 1974 tour. A fine recording here captures the nuances of Keith on Piano and of course the rest of the band's interplay which is especially notable on the wild 'Truckin' and the jams that follow.

      The Dead opened up 1974 with this week's show from Winterland on February 22, 1974. They picked up where they left off in 1973 with a long smoker of a show - we'll hear set 1 this week and set 2 next week. Notable moments include a 22 beat start to 'Beat It On Down The Line', some great Keith throughout, a lovely 'It Must Have Been The Roses', the elusive 'Loose Lucy' and to top everything off, a very long and spacy 'Playin' In the Band' which closes the set and is punctuated with Garcia teasing the 'Slipknot!' jam in several spots.      Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 2/22/74 - Friday     One   U.S. Blues [5:27] ; Beat It On Down The Line [3:22] ; Brown Eyed Women [4:52] ; Mexicali Blues [3:36] ; It Must Have Been The Roses [4:43] ; Black Throated Wind [6:53] ; They Love Each Other [5:39] ; Big River [5:08] ; Loose Lucy [6:35] ; El Paso [4:33] ; Row Jimmy [8:30] ; Playing In The Band [20:55] You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod022621.mp3    thanks for your kind support

    This week we do a little carryover from Fat Tuesday with this Mardi Gras set from February 7, 1989 at the Kaiser in Oakland California.  The set starts with the sounds of the Mardi Gras parade, backed of course by Mickey and Billy on drums. The band starts with a rather unique introduction to Iko, Iko, but its certainly a good choice for the date. The 'Victim' that follows starts as a total train wreck, but does settle down into a trancelike beat. Brent's 'We Can Run' follows, with its warning that seems as ominous as ever. A nice 'Uncle John's Band' takes us into drums. A nice 'Wheel' flows out of Space, and the post-drums highlight to my ears is a fine version of 'Foolish Heart'. 'Good Lovin' closes the set, but Jerry gives us a nice 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door' to end the evening and this fine recording.   Grateful Dead February 7, 1989 - Tuesday Henry J.

    Seeing as how Fat Tuesday is coming right up... I decided to feature a Dead show that took place on Fat Tuesday back in 1989.. This one from Oakland on 2/7/1989.  This is a fairly newly released UltraMatrix recording, and I think it sounds great. The first set which we present this week, features two very new (at the time) numbers - the first performance of 'Just a Little Light' and the second, of 'Standing on the Moon'. Naturally these sound different than what they would become, but I love hearing them when they are shinny and new ;)  Bobby does an excellent job on the the Dylan tune and I think Jerry is nailing it throughout.  Next week we'll hear the second set, complete with sounds from the Mardi Gras parade.   Grateful Dead February 7, 1989 - Tuesday Henry J.

Pig is in prime form on Lovelight which goes into Not Fade Away, then into Goin' Down the Road before returning into Lovelight..

    I guess I just can't get enough of that good stuff.. .. :) but at any rate this week I've decided to bring you a rather rare treat. Back in 1971, the band finished a short, 3 show swing in the Northwest with this blistering performance in a small venue in Seattle on a Sunday night. This took place on January 24, 1971. This one is sparkin' from beginning to end, but I've split it up so we will hear part 1 this week and part 2 next week. It starts appropriately, with Truckin', then a wonderful China>Rider, which includes an incredible transition between the two. Pigpen follows with  the old blues standard - 'It Hurts Me Too'. A blistering Cumberland Blues follows, then a better than average 'Casey Jones' - Pig has some nice organ work here!  Sugar Mag closes set one in fine fashion and I can only imagine that everyone was dancing now! I've included the great Pigpen version of  'Hard to Handle' which opened set 2, and gives you a hint of things to come next week.      Grateful Dead Seattle Center Arena Seattle, WA 1/24/71 - Sunday One Truckin' China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider   It Hurts Me Too   Cumberland Blues   Casey Jones   Sugar Magnolia Two     Hard To Handle   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod012921.mp3  Thank you so much for your kind support of the Deadpod!

     It's a new year but I've decided to go *way* back for some primal Dead on this week's Deadpod.  This comes to us from January 17th, 1968 at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco. What a treasure of early/classic tunes we have here! Now I'll admit, the sound is sometimes muddy and the vocals are at times less than clear.. however give the age and provinance of this recording I thought it very worth listening to and hope you enjoy it as well.  Some of the highlights of course are Pigpen on the Lovelight, and check out the fast pacing throughout. Jerry sounds so different on China Cat! I always love hearing the old 'New Potato Caboose' and 'Born Cross-eyed', but what is probably the highlight is the great almost 16 minute 'Spanish Jam'.  The sound is psychedelic throughout, and if you can overlook the flaws I think you will enjoy this return to some of the roots of our favorite band!    Grateful Dead Carousel Ballroom San Francisco, CA 1/17/68 - Wednesday     One     Turn On Your Love Light [15:22] % Dark Star [#4:48] > China Cat Sunflower [4:04] > The Eleven [10:01] > New Potato Caboose [8:30] > Born Cross-Eyed [2:34] > Spanish Jam [15:47]   Two      Beat It On Down The Line [2:52] ; Morning Dew [7:43] ; Cryptical Envelopment > The Other One > Cryptical Envelopment [10:05] ; Good Morning Little Schoolgirl [13:49]    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod012221.mp3   Thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod!  ... and leave it on!

    This week we wind up our 'holiday' series of Deadpods with the fabulous third set from the band's New Year's Eve performance in Oakland on December 31st, 1982. This third set features guest  appearances with Etta James and the Tower of Power horns. The band clearly has a blast here, and despite it being the third set play with a great deal of passion and energy.. Phil opens with that familiar bass line from 'Lovelight' and Bobby leads them into it. After a couple of verses and a quite interesting solo from Garcia, Bobby introduces Etta James who takes command of the song, and indeed most of the set! This is a great blues set with 'Tell Mama' coming next. They slow things down with a funky 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' but then the spirit of Pigpen returns with a fine 'Hard to Handle' - Etta is really digging Garcia's work here as you'll hear. They close with a fine 'Midnight Hour' to wind down the set.  The boys come back, by themselves to deliver a sweet 'Brokedown Palace' encore.

     Hello Friends!  Hope this week's Deadpod provides a bit of a respite from the storms swirling around our heads... this week we get to hear the second set from the band's New Year Eve performance on December 31, 1982.  NYE is of course the one time of the year when everyone knew what was going to open the second set - and while you'll hear some decidedly 'un-grateful dead' like sound effects at the opening, Sugar Magnolia eventually comes through like ringing a bell, and the band, and Bobby, do an excellent job of celebrating the entrance of a new year. Jerry then goes into a fine 'Sugaree' in noticeably better voice :) 'Man Smart (Woman Smarter) comes next with a nice long guitar intro. Everyone offers some fine contributions here. This ends suddenly, but Jerry brings out 'Ship of Fools' and delivers it quite soulfully. After some searching, the band goes into 'Playin' then drifts into drums and sp;ace. Eventually they launch 'Not Fade Away' with a powerful Brent intro. This one had John Cipollina joining the band, although his contributions are a bit hard to pick out. Instead of turning into 'Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad' (which it seems Garcia is going into) he instead brings out 'Deal'. They finish the set with a great return to 'Sunshine Daydream' and after a nice jam at the end Bobby announces that they will return in a couple minutes - for the third set we'll hear next week.    Oakland Auditorium Oakland, CA 12/31/82 - Friday Two     Sugar Magnolia > Sugaree > Man Smart (Woman Smarter) ; Ship Of Fools ; Playing In The Band > Drums > Space > Not Fade Away ; Deal > Sunshine Daydream You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod010821.mp3   Thank you for your kind support of the Deadpod!  "Though I would not caution all I still might warn a few Don't lend your hand to raise no flag Atop no ship of fools"

     Happy New Year!  From a request from a longtime frirend of the Deadpod - I've decided to celebrate the end of 2020 with this fun and raucous show from NYE 1982. I'll present this one over the next couple weeks and hope can feel and enjoy the fun that the band and everyone in attendance had on this special night 39 years ago.  The first set which we'll hear this week is a bit short, but still well played and tight. Garcia's voice is a bit creaky but he makes up for it with some very nice work on the guitar. A long 'C.C. Rider' has Mathew Kelly sitting in, but I believe Brent adds much to this one (and throughout the set). 'Cumberland Blues' is for me the highlight here as Jerry really brings some nice licks. Brent delivers a short but nice 'Far From Me', Weir is forceful as usual on 'Cassidy' and a bit screechy at times on 'Looks Like Rain' but these are fine versions. 'Ramble On Rose' always brings a smile, and a 'Day Job' to end the year seems quite appropriate.   Oakland Auditorium Oakland, CA 12/31/82 - Friday One     Cold Rain And Snow ; C C Rider ; Cumberland Blues ; Far From Me ; Cassidy ; Ramble On Rose ; Looks Like Rain ; Keep Your Day Job  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod010121.mp3  A word of thanks for your kind support over the holidays and throughout this last, difficult year.
