“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, March 26th, 7-9pm Eastern
Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, March 25, 2018
“There Is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!”
Grateful Dead –
Knickerbocker Arena, Albany, N.Y.
“Dozin’ at the Knick” is a compilation of the three nights at the Knickerbocker arena, Albany. This broadcast
opens early first set March 24th, followed by the last night, March 26th(I have already broadcast March 25th in
the past…). And since I try to never broadcast commercially-released material, all the music tonight will be
outtakes of the album release.

I went to this show and the next 5 and they were all great
REVIEW: Better than Dozin’ at the Knick
I own Dozin’ at the Knick and never listen to it. I much prefer listening to this show. The first set cuts are
especially better than those at Dozin. Very solid 1990 show.
REVIEW: Tennesse Jed jam
That jam at the end of TJed is smoking! Well, the whole song is cooking, but at the end it starts smoking, all
the way until it makes its way into One More Saturday Night. Another highlight is Loser and Desolation
Row. It’s cool hearing Bobby’s guitar turned up in the mix. He played some pretty groovy parts that you
often can’t hear very well.
REVIEW: Night 1 at the Knick
Much already said about this gem of a show (for any era). Bobby sounds great in the mix, Phil’s dropping
bombs, and really the whole band just playing with intent and passion- from start to finish. Re: Loser
(reviews are right): All I can say is its omission from Dozin’ (1996) is made up by the inclusion of it in So
Glad You Made It (2012). It’s a beauty. But the real magic is found in set two. Tellingly, the entire set was
included in Dozin’ (the only one of the six sets, included entire). Must listen!

REVIEW: A clean sweep
The band completes a hat trick with this show!! After 2 strong shows during the previous nights, they don’t let
up and bust out this fine high energy show, that sends the Knick into Grateful Dead lore. From the Bucket all
the way to the Dew the band delivers. When people ask why I followed this band around and collect their
music, just point to this run …point to this tour and let the music speak for itself. D/L the whole run!!
REVIEW: first set
aside from picasso moon and brent’s 90s contributions, when i closed my eyes i warped to another era. the
energy inside the knick was high, and, during the first set, i thought to myself, it doesn’t get any better than
this. while i wouldn’t normally recommend late-era dead first sets, i cannot speak highly enough of this one.
it’s solid from the minute the boyz are out of the gate. big railroad is on par with ’81, row jimmy is
astoundingly crisp, and the blow away borders on pig pen intensity. seriously. check out this first set. that had
to have been the last full throttle dupree’s.
REVIEW: Blow Away
this is the tightest Blow Away, Brent goes off…you NEED to hear this
REVIEW: Best since Saratoga ’85
Last in a three night sweep. Set 1 standard, but BTW was really good. Set 2 after Victim really took off. China
Cat/Rider still one of my all time favorites. Brent/Bob duet in Women Smart was really cool. DEW!!!…Best I
ever heard or saw. After amlost 15 years still raises the hair on the back of my neck. Jerry was doing wind
mills a-la Pete Townsend at the end. Almost cried during Brokedown; so fitting yet so sad. Management at the
Knick actually included Jerry in a wall mural as tribute. Unfortunately, all the best stuff never made it to
Dozin’. All I have is an old tape from WPYX radio broadcast of the show my Bro-In-Law made.
REVIEW: Night 3 at the Knick
Great third night to close out a fantastic run at the Knick. This is my favorite first set from the run- not only
because we get two Brent tunes. Five songs from the first set made the cut for Dozin’. That’s more than 3/24
and 3/25, together. Lot of rarities and spirited playing. Only Dupree’s of 1990 (wouldn’t be played again for
over four years, 9/24/94. Second BTW since its return. Only Railroad Blues of 1990 (next played 6/6/91).
Excellent versions of row jimmy and blow away to close out the first set. Only Built to Last of 1990 to open
the second set (unfortunately was never played again). Gimme Some Lovin->Morning Dew from So Glad You
Made It. Just love Phil and Brent going for it on GSW- can never get enough of that vocal pairing. Beautiful
dew to close out set, followed by Brokedown Palace encore (last of sp90). Must listen to Jerry and Brent on
“Today’s Dead Tomorrow”, Upcoming Gig Events
