The Deadpod

Jan 29, 2016

This week's Deadpod almost falls into the history lesson category.. I had a request from a listener  who noticed that the only two years of the band's history that he did not have represented in his collection of Deadpods were 1965 and 1966.. so they asked if that could be remedied. I thought that was probably long overdue so I decided to bring you this week's Deadpod.. it is made of of two different sources, the first being the Warlocks' demo from November 3rd, 1965.. obviously a studio session, I don't have alot of information about this one but its the only recordings from 1965 I have in my collection. The second source comes from a recording that I recall as the very first bootleg of the band I ever had .. that was a bootleg LP 'Vintage Dead'. This source claims to be both that source and one called 'Historic Dead' and recorded round about September 1966 at the Avalon Ballroom. I always thought this one had some excellent numbers on it particularly Pigpen's performance on Schoolgirl and Midnight Hour. 

All in all I think this is a fun collection to listen to, and I hope you do as well.. probably not mind-blowing.. but still fun.. I hope you enjoy it ..
