“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, July 10th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, July 9, 2017

“There Is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!”

Grateful Dead, JFK Stadium, Philadelphia, PA, July 10, 1987
SBD + AUD Matrix 2 Source Mix(50%-SBD/50%-AUD)
All Transfers and Mastering By Charlie Miller

Original SBD:
SBD > Cassette Master > CD
Original AUD:
AUD: Nakamichi CM-700’s > patched from one Sony D5 > Sony TC-D5M >
Maxell MX-90’s (no Dolby), set up FOB. Taped by Ted Carpenter.
Both sources were patched with: Sennheiser ME80 > Cassette Master > CD

I broadcast the Dylan set from this date when I covered “Ripper’s Rarities” back in December, but only a
soundboard. Tonight, I present the Dead’s set, in a fine matrix recording I uncovered recently. And, naturally, it
is a fine Charlie Miller remastered by that master of mastering, Charlie Miller…

FYI, Charlie’s Facebook page is:

I find the Kevin Tobin matrix in the archive but not Charlie’s, although Charlie’s seems to be remastered from
Kevin’s version, so perhaps this particular version might be very under-listened-to…AND, the reviews below

These reviews are from the Charlie Miller soundboard
REVIEW: Philthy
Nice sound here..I did a good chunk of this summer tour and had fun..but~ Just not a big fan of big stadium
shows and Dylan live..I love the music he wrote but I’ll end it there..this show was probably my favorite of the
East Coast stadium shows but had way more fun in Roanoke with just the Grateful Dead~!!!! Philly is home and
the Philly Heads always show their love in the city of brotherly shove.

REVIEW: Looks Like Rain
This version of LLR is absolutely stellar. It appears to be totally overlooked unfortunately, too. I haven’t found
one single thing written about it online. Truly a hidden gem!!! Other big stand-outs are Jack Straw, My Brother
Esau, Cassidy and Tangled Up In Blue…but I’m telling you….this Looks Like Rain is one of the greatest live
performances I’ve heard by Any band. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!

REVIEW: excellent
I followed a rabbit hole and found MercurialWombat review of LLR. I consider myself an expert on LLR
versions. The man is correct this is a stellar version. 12-11-92 is still my favorite and 12-1-79 will always hold a
special spot in my heart because it was the first bootleg i had with that song on it. I played it over and over and
over……great show, especially the GD part. I love bob d but this was not his best work….peace

REVIEW: Thanks Patty for bringing me to the Dead.
My first Dead show and i have my friend Patty Gallagher to thank for a lifetime of smiles.The show was
amazing a very hot day and a hot show. I remember they had water showers on the sides of the field to keep
cool. I almost past out from the heat thanks to 2 girls who gave me a sip of soda to refresh me. Just a really fun
show Thanks Patty.

These are the only reviews from another audience recording:
REVIEW: This show is highlighted in Rolling Stones article
for its guest jam.

REVIEW: my first dead show
twasnt the last jfk show that was 7789 both were smokin hot over100000 each time they had sprinklers on and
spraying us on the field with hoses grate grate summer and i saw the worlds largest marshmellow fights
