At the start of the interview with Bob Weir, you'll hear me saying some extremely positive things about the then-new CD by Bob Weir and Ratdog, Evening Moods. I wasn't just buttering him up: Except for "Corrina," which dated back to the last three years of the Grateful Dead's career, Evening Moods is all new material - and every song is a winner. (You can order it from the DeadNet store.)

The December 1969 excerpt begins at the end of an acoustic set that happened because (as the band explained at the start of the show) drummer Bill Kreutzmann's flight was late. That's why we hear Bob Weir say, "And now, the man who's responsible for all this: Bill Kreutzmann!" What follows is some damn fine Grateful Dead music!

His contribution to 'Casey Jones' here sounds a little goofy .
