The Deadpod

Apr 15, 2016

Here's a wonderful record of a time when there truly was noone who did anything like the Grateful Dead.. this comes to us from April 12th, 1970 at the Fillmore West. This recording combines an audience and a soundboard source and does have some flaws, but I'm confident you'll listen to it with the same amazement it brings me. Of course the fact that they played with Miles Davis on the same bill during this run must have contributed to their desire to really bring it. 

The show starts with a great Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, but I would bring your attention to the wonderful Garcia jam that flows between China Cat and I Know You Rider.. so sweet! 

I love the Pigpen numbers on this one and the electric Deep Elem and of course a great Viola Lee Blues !
