This week's Deadpod is the result of a request from one of my long time listeners' who reported that his wife had one of those annoying incidents where some lout dumped a beer on her during this, her very first Grateful Dead show and nevertheless remained tolerant enough to accompany him to yet another Dead show 15 years later where the same thing happened to the poor lady!
Despite all that this is a great show, and I'm happy to bring it to you this week, this comes from Falls Church NY from May 8th, 1980. It opens with a rockin' Alabama Getaway, and shows that the boys are ready to rock on this night! Other highlights for me include a fine 'High Time' and a great version of 'Lazy Lightnin'->Supplication'..
I'll be playing the second set of this show next week..
Grateful Dead Glens Falls Civic Center Glens Falls, NY 5/8/80 - Thursday Set One Alabama Getaway [4:21] > The Promised Land [4:10] ; Friend Of The Devil [9:15] ; Mama Tried [2:28] > Mexicali Blues [4:11] ; High Time [8:06] ; Lazy Lightnin' [3:54] > Supplication [7:06] ; Ramble On Rose [7:35] ; Lost Sailor [6:09] > Saint Of Circumstance [6:07]
