Dead show/podcast for 9/8/17

Chart positions

This show was 77th in the global rock chart.

This week we celebrate going back to school with a trip back to one of our favorite schools - the Univ of California at Berkeley with a wonderful show at the Greek theater on September 12th, 1981. The show is rad throughout, but this first set is off the hook with a great Shakedown Street opener and a rousing Greatest Story to open the set. Friend of the Devil follows in a slower but quite pretty tempo. El Paso is improved with some Jerry trills.. but the Birdsong that follows is clearly the highlight of this set. The rest of this quite long first set is absolutely first-rate, including a great transition between China Cat and I Know You Rider to close it.While this is an audience tape, I think the quality is still quite good and hope you enjoy it as much as I have.Grateful DeadGreek Theatre - University of California Berkeley, CA9/12/81 - SaturdayOne Shakedown Street [13:46] ;Greatest Story Ever Told [3:43] ;Friend Of The Devil [8:35] >El Paso [5:07] ;Bird Song [10:34] >Cassidy
