“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, December 26th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, December 25, 2022


I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
“REVIEW: stella
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance of the tears streaming down
the face of the girl beside me. She seemed to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

While Christmas passed me by yesterday, it occurred to me that there is still some “christmas-y”
stuff I could play. This is “Dead”-icated to our “illustrious” governor, DeSantis:

REVIEW: whole lota women
great easy wind good all around show

REVIEW: Just a little ditty
Best Frozen Logger performance! Great Easy Wind too. Sound has a few problems

REVIEW: Top 3 Good Lovin
Nice show – thats the highlight

REVIEW: Good Show
Some of the songs start out a bit clunky but pay off with real vocal ferocity and payoff jams.
Amazing “Easy Wind”, starts out stumblin’ a bit but kicks down some sweet harmonica and a
mind’ bogglin guitar trip.

REVIEW: Hey?
I know the band was never impressed with their Till’ the Morning Comes, but it’s worth saying
it’s alright considering it was done( in essence )only a hand full of times. And electric Friend of
the Devil. I put a 5 because of Big Railroad Blues.

REVIEW: Till the morning comes…
I wish they had played this tune alot more, this is my favorite recording of this rarity.
I’ve had it a dogs age… It would’ve made a cool set opener for a decade, IMHO. Play it loud.

REVIEW: Great show! classic 1970 stuff
Getting all those sounds from Workingmans Dead and American Beauty only happened for a
short window. Darn near a 5 * show!

REVIEW: Easy Wind
This is one of my favorite Easy Winds. Just fantastic – Bobby is ON during the jam and you can
really hear him well. It does sound a tad slow. 70 is one of my favorite years and this is one of
MANY fantastic shows.

REVIEW: reAl speed
I have had this show on tape for years. I always suspected it might be a little slow, but now
hearing this I am of the suspicion that the boys just had some really good candy that night, and
were just having a great time. THAT much is evident.

REVIEW: Make yourself easy..
This show has grown on me especially after listening to the entire 3 night run.
Check out the beat count and band banter for B.I.O.D.T.L (Pretty sure the set ends after Beat it
on down the line. Even so majority of tunes this night played in the 1st set?) Also agree, Top 3
Good Lovin—–The jam is HOT!
