Yesterday's Dead Today
"There is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead Concert!"
Monday, December 9th:
Before tonight’s Grateful Dead broadcast, as you probably already remember,
yesterday, December 8th, was the anniversary of the shooting of John Lennon.
Terry and I had only been together just under a year, and were on our way to
an indoor soccer game at the Nassau Coliseum when the news. We just went
back to my place and sat in each other’s arms...John was Terry’s “boy”...

REVIEW: Preacher man call me a sinner..but his little girl calls me a saint
Very nice sound to this gem of a show..A sweet Row Jimmy and the Lazy
Lightning>Supp Deal to end 1st set SMOKE..I love the High Time in the 2nd
set and also the song selection..the Black Peter out of space is haunting..so
please>GIVE IT A WHIRL!! Forever Grateful>Forever Dead!!!!!!!!!
REVIEW: good show
Candyman solo is very cool. Shakedown gets pretty out there too, one of the
better versions imo. the Brent song was kinda cheesy, but Terrapin was good
as is Sailor>Saint. Black Peter is one of my fave dead tunes so this is a joy to
hear. i like the winter79 run. good stuff. the patch work is done pretty well
REVIEW: Awesome Energy!
This show gets an A+++ for energy and a straight-"A" for Recording quality!
The old Keil Center was a horrible venue for sound quality, but you'd never
know it, from this recording! A definite "must have"......Worth the download,
simply for "Bertha" and "Terrapin"...
REVIEW: So So
been listening to this one over a span of a few days. Some ups and downs for
me. Jerry's voice
seems pretty shaky, first set was OK..Row Jimmy very nice, as was Brown
Eyed Woman..I'm usually not a big fan of Shakedown Street..but this one had
me wanted to jump out of my truck in traffic and dance yesterday as did
Samson..after that I almost lost interest in the rest of the show..I still have
Bertha->Good Lovin' and don't ease to get to.
I was just pokin around looking for a good Shakedown and thought I'd give
this one a shot...
MY GOD MAN!!! This is so jammy and jazzy and funky and psychedelic-y...
just alot of fun! And
the sound is damn good too!!! I've only heard
the Shakedown and give it 5 stars, sound is 4.5
REVIEW: what a damn good show.
shakedown is sweet. setlist is great. 4.5 for sound 5 for jams
REVIEW: Best show of '79 ?
Longest Row Jimmy ever at 18 mins+ Comes out swinging and I agree with
my predecessor that I completely missed this one. 1979 was never a year I had
alot of interest in and was astonished at the pure hard driving / trippy power of
these shows. This is no different - You will not be disappointed! CHECK
OUT THE FUNKY ECHO MACHINES AT WORK IN TERRAPIN AND
LOST SAILOR + jam....This show is one of the best on this whole site I agree
22 songs 7 before drums which contains a trippier and more synthesized Ollin
Arrageed esque jam. Sorry 1/10/79 Nassau a l/t favorite tape now #2 for the
REVIEW: Great guitar night for Jerry
I had to listen to this show several times to decide on a grade. Itâs an uneven
show, but the good bits are quite good. The appeal of this show is that Jerryâs
guitar work is excellent on a lot of the songs. Thereâs Cassidy, Supplication,
and Sampson, which are hot and fast. I like Minglewood from this period, and
except for a patch in the middle, this one doesnât disappoint: Jerry smokes on
guitar and Bob delivers a solid vocal. Jerry even makes Shakedown Street, a
song that Iâve never been crazy about, into one of the highlights of the show.
Shakedown is a group effort, as Phil does a great job, as do Bob and Brent on
backup vocals. The jam from Saint>drums is another good spot. Black Peter is
sweet. Don't Ease Me in is the best of the ending songs. The trade off is that
Jerryâs vocals are a bit shaky at times. Some songs, such as Alabama Getaway
and High Time, are not all that inspired. Easy to Love You is a lite-rock yawn,
but it usually is in any show. They get back to real Dead with Terrapin. Itâs a
pretty good Terrapin, though not flawless, as Jerry flubs the lyrics at one point
and has some tentative vocals in spots, and drags a little. The band sounds
tired on Good Lovin'. However, the highlights of the show outweigh these
REVIEW: Shakedown of Samson
That may be two of the hottest back to backs I've heard from the boys!
this show needs to be noted for it's incredible shakedown....get it for this song
alone....not the most incredible fall 79' but it's up there....
REVIEW: Amazing show!!
that was truly a epic show!
