San Diego Int’l Sports Arena, San Diego, CA: November 14, 1973

Our first Dead Zone post/episode in the PFTW era (Post-Fare Thee Well)… I thoroughly enjoyed every last note of the Chicago shows, with Friday being my favorite night of the run… My wife and I went to a local theater that showed the simulcast, and had an absolute blast… It was a right-sized crowd, and the vibe was as Kind as could be… And the music? Whoo! Stellar.

So we’re back in earnest this week, with another show to be featured in the upcoming 80-disc box set 30 Trips Around the Sun. Welcome to November 14, 1973 from the San Diego international Sports Arena… On this week’s episode of The Dead Zone on JEMP Radio, we featured a great run of songs from the second set, from the “Truckin'” opener to “Wharf Rat.” Along the way, the fellas weave in and out of “The Other One,” while regaling us with great versions of “Big River” and “Eyes of the World” along the way.

Stream that bad boy in its entirety below. You dig it the most.

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… Continue Reading

Fillmore East, New York, NY: November 16, 1970

  This week’s show was inspired by a gift I received recently. A generous and thoughtful friend of mine sent me a “Still-Sealed” condition copy of The Grateful Dead’s seminal 1970 studio album, American Beauty. Holy crap. He’s had it in his collection — where it has remained unopened — since he bought it 37… Continue Reading

Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, CO: August 12, 1987

A rockin’ good show from Red Rocks in this week’s episode of The Dead Zone. For this week’s installment on JEMP Radio, we gave you all of Set 2, a bright, solid rocker all the way. The band sounded tight from “China/Rider” straight through “Lovelight.” “Drums/Space” was ample, but not extensive, and we got a… Continue Reading

Sports Palace, Barcelona, Spain: October 19, 1981

One from the early 80’s-era, and the first featured show on The Dead Zone from outside the U.S. This show in Barcelona was the last of 14 European dates the Grateful Dead played in October before heading back stateside to finish out 1981. During our show on JEMP Radio, we highlighted most of the second… Continue Reading

The Ark, Boston, MA: April 23, 1969

One of the things I love most about the Grateful Dead is when non-fans ask, “How can you listen to the same song so many times?” My answer varies, but most often, it’s a variation of, “It’s NOT the same song.” Depending on which version of any given song you listen to, you may get… Continue Reading

The Palladium, Hollywood, CA: August 6, 1971

Another California show, this classic from 1971 was another widely traded audience tape that has since seen several soundboard and matrix versions crop up at archive.org. So stellar a show from that summer, that it was released as part of the Road Trips series a while back, but as is so often the case, it’s… Continue Reading

Stanley Theater, Jersey City, NJ: September 28, 1972

I’m not even sure how I happened by this show from fall of 1972, but it’s a ripper start-to-finish. This was the final show of a colossal three-night stand the Dead did at this 4300-seat venue which first opened in 1928 in Jersey City, New Jersey. So colossal a run of shows this was, that… Continue Reading
