PLEASE NOTE if you automatically downloaded this episode this morning you may have a corrupted file  please redownload from this link! Thank you!   This week we conclude our visit to the Uptown Theater with the second set from the band's performance on  January 31, 1978.  This set starts with a fine Scarlet>Fire with a wonderful transition with Donna hitting this just right. The Samson is raging, then the band goes into a delicious Terrapin Station, into a sweet Playing with Phil really adding some nice bottom. A short Drums and Space leads into an intense 'Black Peter', much longer than the earlier versions, then 'Truckin' leads into a set closing, and quite enjoyable 'Good Lovin'.    No encore.

 I'm going to do something I don't normally do this week - play the show immediately following last week's show.. and there's plenty of good reasons to do so. This show - 1/31/78 from the Uptown Theater in Chicago is very very good.  The opening 'Mississippi Half-Step' gives us a taste of what is to come - check out Garcia's licks here, then we get a smoking hot 'Passenger' with outstanding contributions by Phil and Jerry and fine vocals from Donna Jean. 'Tennessee Jed' follows and again, the contributions by the ensemble make for a most enjoyable listen, in particular the great jam before the coda. A lyrical 'El Paso' follow with Bob here in excellent vocal form. The 'Candyman' that follows is patched from an audience source, but Jerry still sounds soulful. Following 'Minglewood' and a nice 'They Love Each Other' is a simmering 'Let It Grow' to close the set..

This week we feature the second set from the band's performance at the Uptown Theater in Chicago Il. on January 30, 1978.  I'm quite impressed with this set. It starts off with a fine 'Bertha' which goes into an excellent 'Good Lovin', followed by 'Ship of Fools'. What follows however is over an hour of non-stop Dead magic.  'Estimated'>'Eyes' where Jerry has some interstellar noodling going into a sweet 'Stella Blue' . Then a rare triple-dose of Jerry as the band goes into a rare, late set 'Franklin's Tower' This combination of Stella>Franklins is a first and never repeated. A rockin' 'Around and Around' closes the set but they return for a signature 'Johnny B Goode' encore.    Grateful Dead Uptown Theatre Chicago, IL 1/30/1978 - Monday      Two      Bertha [6:33] > Good Lovin' [5:23] Ship Of Fools [7:34] Estimated Prophet [12:47] > Eyes Of The World [11:56] > Space [6:30] > Stella Blue [9:38] > Franklin's Tower [14:01] > Around And Around [8:08] Encore      Johnny B.

As we head into the New Year, here's a January show, a rarity for the band, from the intimate Uptown Theater in Chicago on January 30th, 1978. While this first set doesn't have the jamming that you'll hear in set 2, it is tight and Jerry's voice is much better than it was earlier in the month. There is some funny back and forth between songs, and the Lazy Lightning is greatly improved by Phil's contributions.   Grateful Dead Uptown Theatre Chicago, IL 1/30/1978 - Monday      One    The Promised Land [4:15]   Dire Wolf [3:30]   Mexicali Blues [3:32] > Big River [5:45]   Brown Eyed Women [5:28]   Looks Like Rain [8:04]   Peggy-O [7:01]   It's All Over Now [7:53]   Deal [5:37]   Lazy Lightnin' [3:22] > Supplication [5:32]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:   http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod010623.mp3 Hope you are all well and that you're New Year has started strong! thanks so much for your kind support.     
 As we countdown the minutes until 2023, you should enjoy this gem of a show from 33 years ago - December 30, 1989. I don't believe I'm engaging in hyperbole if I say this is a great second set from this period of the band's history. There's not a bad song here. Jerry smokes his leads in 'Jack Straw' and 'I Know You Rider'. This 'Estimated Prophet is one of the best ever. I even dare say the drums and space, with Airto, is one of the best you'll hear.  I'm a sucker for a great 'Standing on the Moon' and Jerry delivers on this one.This is one of those shows that makes me wish for time travel. I hope you enjoy it!   Grateful Dead Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena Oakland, CA 12/30/1989 - Saturday Two     Jack Straw [5:58] > China Cat Sunflower [5:26] > I Know You Rider [5:12] Estimated Prophet [12:34] > Terrapin Station [13:51] > Jam [1:51] % Drums [#11:#32] (1) > Space [7:47] > I Will Take You Home [4:18] > The Other One [10:18] (2) > Standing On The Moon [7:57] > One More Saturday Night [4:02] Encore     It's All Over Now, Baby Blue [6:43] Comments     (1) with Airto (2) { theme [2:40] verse 1 [0:41] theme [5:02] verse 2 [0:40] theme [1:15] }   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod122322.mp3   Have a safe and very happy New Year!  thank you for all your support this last year my friends.. 
 As Christmas approaches, Hanukkah continues, and the big snowstorm closes in on many of us, I hope that this week's Deadpod brings you some joy this week!  I bring you the first set of what is a really great show from December 30, 1989 in Oakland California. The opening 'Bertha' flows into a rare first-set 'Good Lovin' which then flows into an excellent version of 'Sugaree'. The entire set is quite well played, and while Airto joins at 'Sugaree' and remains the rest of the show, his contributions are a bit hidden most of the time.  The set-closing 'Music Never Stopped' features some interesting Midi Horns from Garcia, but the entire set is energetic and a pleasure to hear. I hope you enjoy it.    Grateful Dead Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena Oakland, CA 12/30/1989 - Saturday One      Bertha [6:22] > Good Lovin' [4:02] > Sugaree [9:30]    Walkin' Blues [6:42]    Jack-A-Roe [4:10]    When I Paint My Masterpiece [5:02] West L.A.

Whoa! Another 2 hour plus Deadpod this week as we explore the second set of the band's performance at Duke University in Durham North Carolina on December 8, 1973. This massive second set contains both its share of standard tunes and psychedelic moments. They start out with some standard rockers - 'Around and Around' 'Ramble On Rose', 'El Paso'. (but don't miss the fun introduction with Phil and Bob).  Things really get interesting with the jam from 'Truckin' into a fine 'Nobody's Fault' jam'. Jerry takes us on a visit to the outer limits with the jam that finally disolves into 'The Other One'. The music disolves into a sweet 'Wharf Rat' and if that weren't enough a fine 'Stella Blue'.  You'd think the 'Johnny B Goode' that follows would signal the end of the show, but Jerry isn't having it and they go into a nice 'Uncle John's Band'.    Grateful Dead Cameron Indoor Stadium - Duke University Durham, NC 12/8/1973 - Saturday Two     Around And Around Ramble On Rose El Paso Row Jimmy Greatest Story Ever Told > Bertha He's Gone > Truckin' > Nobody's Fault But Mine > The Other One > Wharf Rat > Stella Blue Johnny B.

 A really BIG show this week on the Deadpod!  From December 8, 1973 at Duke University we have this gem on this week's Deadpod. A huge 16 song first set featuring some really wonderful renditions and great jamming on some of these tunes. An example is Jerry on the 'Mexicali Blues', a very fine version of 'Me & Bobby McGee', and a complete 'Weather Report Suite'.  For fine jamming, the China>Rider can't be beat - including a 'Feelin' Groovy' jam (although it does have a cut)...      Grateful Dead Cameron Indoor Stadium - Duke University Durham, NC 12/8/1973 - Saturday One     Me And My Uncle Sugaree Mexicali Blues Dire Wolf Black Throated Wind They Love Each Other Me And Bobby McGee Don't Ease Me In The Race Is On Brown Eyed Women Big River Candyman Weather Report Suite Prelude > Weather Report Suite Part 1 > Let It Grow China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod120922.mp3 Hope you enjoy this treat!  Thanks for listening and for your kind support of the Deadpod! 
Think that a show from 56 years ago doesn't rock? If so I challenge you to listen to this week's Deadpod... from November 19, 1966 in San Francisco, this primal Dead will surely knock your socks off... Such amazing energy and emotion on display here. The boys are spreading their wings while still exploring the legacy of the blues in the midst of Beatle mania.  There are many highlights here, but I have to call out 'Cream Puff War', and 'Dancin' In The Streets' (despite the tragic cut at the end) as virtuoso examples of primal Grateful Dead.  The entire second set (what we have of it) is a testament to the power and presence of Pigpen. Enough said.      Grateful Dead Fillmore Auditorium San Francisco, CA 11/19/1966 - Saturday One     Cold Rain And Snow [3:05] Hi-Heel Sneakers [4:07] Pain In My Heart [2:52] Beat It On Down The Line [2:24] Cream Puff War [7:27] Same Thing [9:59] He Was A Friend Of Mine [4:32] Dancin' In The Street [5:59#] Two     Smokestack Lightning [8:41] > King Bee [5:23] Midnight Hour [18:09]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod120222.mp3 Thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod!   
I know that I've previously said how enamored I am of the music the Grateful Dead created in the Fall of 1973, specifically during November. Luckily for us, there is an exceptional set that has yet to be released commercially nor here on the Deadpod that I have the privilege of featuring this week. This occurred on November 1, 1973 at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.  While we only have the second set of this wonderful performance, I think you'll agree it is a much-needed respite from the noise and confusion of the current season.The band reaches peaks of expression here on selections such as 'Playin' In the Band', 'He's Gone' and 'Truckin'. The style is jazz forward and experimental. The fact that Billy is alone on percussion probably allows him to be more supple and driving at times, especially during 'He's Gone'.  I recommend time and space to savor this one, I think you'll find its worth it..    Grateful Dead McGaw Memorial Hall - Northwestern University      11/1/1973 - Thursday Evanston, IL Two     Morning Dew [13:35] > Playing In The Band [14:58] > Uncle John's Band [8:#09] > Playing In The Band [6:36]   Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo > He's Gone > Truckin' > Wharf Rat   Sugar Magnolia You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod110422.mp3  As always my sincere thanks for your kind support! 
 Happy Thanksgiving!  As is the tradition on the Deadpod, this week we feature an acoustic set from the band. This one comes from the Warfield in San Francisco on October 3, 1980.  This one is in exceptional quality, I think, and so far as I can tell I haven't featured it before :)  Thank you so much for the privilege of sharing this music with you over the years. I can't tell you how much your kind words and support has meant. I hope that this finds you and yours safe, healthy and gathered together in love today.

This week's Deadpod features the second set from the band's performance in Oakland on November 20,1985.  The second set features some very nice highlights, including an excellent Sailor>Saint and an outstanding 'Terrapin Station'. This is a nice long version, punctuated by an excellent jam by Garcia going into the Brent tune 'Don't Need Love'.  The Sugar Magnolia was memorable as Bobby played rock star and climbed up on the speaker stacks during 'SSDD'...      Grateful Dead Henry J.

A high energy first set for your enjoyment on this week's Deadpod comes to us from the Henry Kaiser convention center in Oakland California, on November 20, 1985.  The first night of a three night 'hometown' run, starts off with a roaring 'Jack Straw'. Jerry follows with a lovely 'Peggy O', then Bobby performs the bluesy 'CC Rider' featuring some nice effects on the Hammond from Brent. Following poor old 'Stagger Lee', Bobby boxes with the Apocalypse on 'My Brother Esau'.  Jerry brings out 'High Time', although his voice struggles a bit with it, I still enjoy the tune. They end the set with a trifecta of high energy tunes, 'Beat It On Down the Line', then 'Promised Land' into 'Don't Ease'..  Set 2 is quite interested and scheduled for next week...  Grateful Dead Henry J.

The Dead played this second set 45 years ago today, on 10/28/77 at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in Kansas City KS. This is a fine display of the rhythmic richness of the band at this high water mark of their career. The set starts with a high octane 'Samson & Delilah' then things slow down a bit for a sweet 'Candyman' and Donna Jean's 'Sunrise'. They start to rev back up with 'Passenger' then we get one of the real high water marks of this set with a great 'He's Gone'.  Following a very short Drums, we get a unusual 'Not Fade Away'>'Stella Blue'>'Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad' combination, one of only two the band every did. After the set-closing 'Around and Around' they return for an excellent 'Casey Jones', not to be missed.    Grateful Dead Soldier's And Sailors Memorial Hall Kansas City, KS 10/28/1977 - Friday     Two     Samson And Delilah [6:59] Candyman [6:44] Sunrise [3:49] Passenger [3:33] He's Gone [18:28] > Drums [3:14] > Not Fade Away [13:19] > Stella Blue [10:54] > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad [7:08] > Around And Around [7:32#] Encore     Casey Jones [8:00]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod102822.mp3  have a safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!   
We're going to close out the month of October with a great show from 1977. This one comes to us from Kansas City KS, on October 28, 1977. This week's first set is very melodic throughout, with a nice laid back rhythm for the most part.  Promised Land is the opener (don't fear -the audience splice only lasts a few moments), then a sweet 'They Love Each Other'. One of the things I love about this recording is the clarity of each instrument - which is evident especially in the 'Cassidy' that follows. This entire set is quite well done, but I would draw your attention to the 'Supplication' and 'Deal' that closes the set - there is some really fine jamming going on there!      Grateful Dead Soldier's And Sailors Memorial Hall Kansas City, KS 10/28/1977 - Friday     One     The Promised Land [4:16] ; They Love Each Other [7:10] ; Cassidy [4:33] ; Tennessee Jed [8:59] ; Mexicali Blues [3:05] > Big River [5:47] ; Brown Eyed Women [5:01] ; Lazy Lightnin' [3:13] > Supplication [5:48] ; Deal [6:19]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod102122.mp3   I'll play the second set next week.  Thanks to Steve for this fine suggestion.  Hope you got whatever Dead & Co. tickets you wanted...  Be well and don't let the crazy noise this time of year get to you :)
While I played this show, unbeknownst to me, ten years ago on the Deadpod, I am still going to present the wonderful second set this week. This show, from Indianapolis on October 1, 1976, features a sweet second set. While a 'Might As Well' opener might not signal such a beauty, the 'Samson' that follows quickly convinces that we are in a for a treat. Great interplay throughout from Jerry and Phil. When the 'Help>Slip>Frank' that follows gets rolling the band hits on all cylinders. I especially love Keith's contribution in the great 'Slipknot!' jam here. A somewhat short 'Dancin' goes into an even shorter 'drums' but 'The Wheel' that follows is sweet. Following 'Ship of Fools', Bobby attempts to go back into 'Dancin' in a very unusual jam, but the boys move into a 'Goin' Down the Road' into 'Saturday Night' to end the set.    Grateful Dead Market Square Arena Indianapolis, IN  10/1/1976 - Friday Two     Might As Well [5:37] ; Samson And Delilah [7:13] % Help On The Way [4:07] > Slipknot!

This week's Deadpod features a set from the Fall tour of 1976. If you're not familiar with this period I think you'll enjoy this week's selection, which comes from Market Square Arena, in Indianapolis Indiana.   This is a fine set, in my opinion, which really gets going once they hit 'Deal'. The 'Cassidy' is no slouch and 'Big River' rocks as usual. The highlight of the set is probably the stand-alone 'Scarlet Begonias' which leads us into the set closing 'Promised Land' Set 2 next week is no slouch!   Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, Ind. (10/1/76) Set One: Bertha Mama Tried Deal Cassidy Friend of the Devil Big River Brown Eyed Women It's All Over Now Scarlet Begonias Promised Land You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod100722.mp3 Hope you have a happy Harvest!  
 Fifty years ago today, the Grateful Dead played this free concert in Washington D.C.  I present the fine second set for your entertainment today. I hope you agree that it is an excellent recording and contains some quite sublime moments. I'll draw your attention to just a few.. the 'He's Gone' is drawn out and heartfelt. I'm also a big fan of Jerry's performance of 'Brokedown Palace' here.  'The Other One' shows the boys more than willing to take the jam to the stars, Phil in particular is outstanding here. 'Sing Me Back Home' again, Jerry is sublime. I love the 'Uncle John's Band' closer.. while we don't have the encore, I think we have more than enough here to raise our spirits..  Grateful Dead Reeves Field - American University Washington, DC 9/30/1972 - Saturday     Two     Greatest Story Ever Told He's Gone Me And My Uncle Brokedown Palace Truckin' > The Other One > Sing Me Back Home Sugar Magnolia Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo Uncle John's Band  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod093022.mp3 Thank you for listening, I so hope you enjoy!   
  This week's Deadpod features a 'free' show that took place on the campus of American University in Washington D.C. on September 30, 1972. This is a fairly standard '72 setlist, however it is a nice collection of well-played standards and we are fortunate to have such a nice recording (albeit there is a cut in the wonderful 'I Know You Rider').  Bob Weir is a bit higher in the mix than usual which results in an interesting listen. He is also in fine voice, hitting some higher notes than he was able to a few years later. Besides the aforementioned China>Rider, which is wonderful, some of the other highlights here are an excellent 'Black Throated Wind', 'Birdsong' (before which you can hear Bobby complaining about the stage heaters), a hot 'Big River', and a jammed out 'Playin' In the Band'.      Grateful Dead Reeves Field - American University Washington, DC 9/30/1972 - Saturday     One     The Promised Land Deal Mexicali Blues Sugaree Black Throated Wind China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider El Paso Bird Song Big River Loser Playing In The Band Casey Jones   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod092322.mp3 "Same old friends the wind and rain, Summers fade and roses die, You'll see summer come again, Like a song that's born to soar the sky."
Pardon the brevity but as I'm feeling under the weather this intro will have to be even briefer than usual..  a find second set from the first night of the legendary Madison Square Garden run of 1990 features an excellent 'Scarlet>Fire' .. I love Phil and Jerry's contributions here, especially on the incendiary jams in Fire.. It's been awhile since I've featured a good 'Terrapin Station' and that's here too, as is a wonderful 'Wharf Rat'.  All in all an excellent early 90s second set.. I hope you enjoy it.      Grateful Dead Madison Square Garden New York , NY 9/14/1990 - Friday Two      Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain > Truckin' > Terrapin Station > Jam > Drums > Space > The Other One > Wharf Rat > Sugar Magnolia   Encore      U.S. Blues  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod091622.mp3 Hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to hearing from you.
