“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, March 13th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, March 12, 2023

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”

REVIEW: Grossman:
This show is smoking! That poppy, clavvy Brent is all over this stuff.. March of ’85 at the BCT..
That smells like a good recipe.

REVIEW: Music > Franklin’s > Estimated > Spoonful
I think that explains it.

REVIEW: fandamntabulous!!
handle with care…this is freakin hot!! my speakers melted.

REVIEW: Harmonica?
Who’s playing it during the first set? I love how it sounds, especially during Minglewood.
Very great show. 2nd set is an anomoly. It’s like the first set wasn’t long enough so they kept it
going in that style. Music, Franklins, Estimated, Spoonfull is just wierd.

REVIEW: harmonica
That’s Matt Kelly on harp.

REVIEW: Pretty amazing.
Great show. Just got done listening to it, the band stays strong the whole way through.

Great set, sound and show. The playing is so amazing it will blow your hair back! Bobby is in
full voice and jerry never misses a beat. This is a must, have a listen and enjoy!

REVIEW: Rockin’ little show
The boys were certainly on tonight. Everything is tight and some interesting tempos to boot.

REVIEW: Nice and comfortable show
A sweet and lyrical show with Jerry doing some jazzy improvs. Very nice, laid back and well
played show. Everybody is on the same page. The only thing I can complain about are the weird
and oftimes distracting effects put on the vocals, especially Bobby’s, other than that the sound is
clear, though Phil could be louder. Just crank up the bass and everything is fine. This is one of
the better ’85 shows I’ve found thus far.

I would have loved to been at this one. sounds good.

REVIEW: Anomaly
Indescribably one of my favorite shows ever. This show is a sublime glimpse of what would happen in June of
this same year. The whole 1st set into the 2nd set MNS- Franks- Estimated is simply so unique to any other show
of this era or any other.
