“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”
Didn’t post last week’s show because I didn’t know if what I did would work, editing a show from a year ago, but thanks to serious tutelage and programming by Annie Murphy, WSLR was able to post a “Yesterday’s Dead Today” show, albeit from a year ago. So, until things start to return to normal, I will be featuring a show(in order), from last year’s broadcasts:
Grateful DeadThe Mecca, Milwaukee, Wi.April 15th, 1989DSBD (Panasonic 3800)>CD (HHB CDR800)>EAC>SHNconversion by AJ – email@example.com – 2/5/00Probably one cassette generation as per Charlie Miller
Disc 1 – Set 1:
Disc 2 – Set 2:
REVIEW: Source InfoThis is not a DSBD. It is from a cassette master…..cm
REVIEW: high pitchThat would explain the speed/pitch issue mine ears detect. Great show though. Phil is on fire and Jerryreciprocates. Bob is plenty audible, and there’s 2 Brent songs! Good ol’ Grateful Dead.
REVIEW: The MeccaIts funny what you remember and what you don’t…I recall this night being really fun and pleasant,especially after some of the grim stops in the East this Spring tour (Pittsburg)…the Mecca is kind cozycompared to most of the other venues from that time. But I remembered the next night being the standoutshow…and then I realize how hot this show really was…no wonder I had such a great time.
REVIEW: Ahhhhm Good Ol’ 1989Sure was a Great year for the boys. This baby sounds Soooo nice. I’m a bit picky & I’d call this copycrispy.
REVIEW: Nice show!This is a very solid show by the boys during a great period. Short show…very well played…sound is A- fora matrix SBD.
REVIEW: Good TimesI saw a lot of rock concerts (Jethro Tull, The Who, Neil Young, ZZ Top …) at the old MECCA (thebasketball arena in downtown Milwuakee before the Bradley Center was built). Not known for goodacoustics, the Dead made this old barn sing. I never heard anything sound so good. Nothing special, butwell played, tight and very enjoyable. Oh, Brent’s rap is just fine. Brent put it out there every night playinghis butt off. His death in 1990 was the first “end” followed of course by Jerry’s death in 95.
