Generally considered the strongest show of one of the strongest runs in the band's Post-Brent Mydland career, this week's Deadpod pays homage to the band's performance on September 20th, 1990 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY. I clearly remember how excited and happy I was when I first heard of, then finally got to listen to, this run of shows. There was much uncertainty about how the band would hold up after the passing of Mydland, but this run of shows showed that they were truly 'built to last'. The addition of Bruce Hornsby to the lineup provided a welcome surge of energy to Garcia, who, despite a voice that was sometimes a bit raspy, turned in an epic performance. This first set which we'll hear this week, shows a confident and rocking lineup. I'm especially fond of 'Ramble On Rose' and the 'Greatest Story Ever Told' 'US Blues' ending. Next week's second set features some GREAT jamming. I hope you enjoy it!
