Cape Cod Coliseum, So. Yarmouth, MA: Oct. 27, 1979


The first show we’ve featured from 1979, and a great time to bust into what was a great year for live Grateful Dead. I just heard about the new 80-disc box set that’ll be released in September, a collection that will feature one live show from every year the Dead performed. There are a lot of shows that are off the beaten track, as well as some shows that we’ve actually featured here on The Dead Zone in previous installments.

This week’s show is one of the former – an underrated show from Cape Cod Coliseum, and we’re highlighting the end of Set 1 and beginning of Set 2… The first set ending with “Lost Sailor” and “Deal,” and the second opening with “Dancing in the Streets,” and heading into “Franklin’s Tower” (no Help>Slipknot! on this one), before blazing through “He’s Gone” and “The Other One.” Enjoy the whole shebang below, and be listening to future installments of The Dead Zone in the coming weeks, as we check out some of the other featured shows from that upcoming collection.
