The Deadpod

Feb 12, 2021

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.
