  2. Now the ‘jammers’ have won out over the ‘songsters’ we’re off with some primal Dead. Of course we do get the Reverend’s finest blues too, a real favourite blues track for me
    Cheers Mat, Jan was looking relatively thin in the archives so a very welcome addition.

  3. Very cool, thank you. I love this time period, despite very similar set lists, the shows are very different.

  4. And were off! A Grate one for sure. Purest will be too preoccupied with the heavy bass drum, it never bothered me. Dark Star is a beaut!

  5. Nice! Able to fit it on one CD by dropping the already brutalized Stephen. Hope to rock it tonight. My mother-in-law is staying with us and it will be her first time having to endure this kind of thing.
