My First Show. Would trade 10 to see it again!
I used to have this show on CD. Was called Eat Lard Fudge or something to that effect. Anyway this show was off the hook from the very get go. The Casey Jones is the best i've heard with an audio glitch beginning a jam that goes through each member going off on an instrumental solo. The end has them jamming so hard you can no longer hear them singing through it. Now you know you're in trouble(The Good Kind) when a show starts like that and the rest of the show was awesome.If anyone know any way i can get my hands on this i would love to hear from em.
The DeadPod played this show (1st set) Friday night 10/3/08.
If you aren't getting the DeadPod, you definitely need to sign on.
Google: "KOPN DeadPod".
P.S. This month is their annual pledge drive, so have your credit card at hand. It is not a requirement, but it is definitely cool to help them out a bit.
Some friends were trying to get me into the Dead. I was all of 18 years old, sitting on the sidewalk in front of the Paramount with a bunch of hardcore Deadheads. They're all talking about all of these obscure tunes they expect to hear and I made the mistake of saying 'I just want 'em to play Casey Jones and Truckin, cause they're the only Dead songs I know'. Everyone laughed and said they haven't played either of them in YEARS, so don't get your hopes up kid. So, of course they opened with a rippin' Casey Jones and did a great Truckin in the second set. I was hooked. My second show was the legendary MacCourt show a few months later and I was ruined for life. Saw lots of great shows over the years, but those two were still the best by far.
Set 1 is very well done, with BE Women, the outros in Dupree's and Grow, and the 1st solo in Deal as the highlights. Set 2 starts off hot with Samson and Scarlet > Fire, but then heads a little south. I think this show is a little overated. VG show, 8.5/10
