Grateful Dead Spring 1990 Highlights 2

GD-90-2-2

The Grateful Dead released an excellent box set last fall that highlights their Spring 1990 tour, featuring six complete shows remastered and remojo'd on 18 CDs. Many Deadhead aficionados consider this period to be one of the last great musical peaks for the band, post-In The Dark with Jerry in good health and the band firing on all cylinders night after night. It is also a noteworthy period as these are Brent's last days with the Dead…

DJ Fundi took it upon himself to comb through the more than 20 hours of live Dead recordings found on the new Spring Tour 1990 box set, finding favorite moments, sweet ballads and stellar jams, then blending them together in to this "highlight mix." Its like Fantasy Grateful Dead: pick and choose your own set list, create your dream show! & boogie down! It is sequenced and mixed so as to emulate what you might hear at a show. Lots of Jerry here, as you might imagine, alongside Bobby, Phil and Brent singing their best too. Everyone sounds just great here.

Widespread Panic * Highlights from the 25th Anniversary Shows * 2/10/11



F
or your jamtastic listening pleasure, DJ Fundi has put together a 2-part mix featuring highlights of the recent Widespread Panic 25th anniversary shows at the Classic Center in Atlanta, GA. This episode features my favorite moments from the February 10, 2011 show -- we’ll post highlights from the following night next week. I know that purists will be horrified to hear a Panic show edited and blended in this fashion, but oh well -- one can purchase the shows in their glorious entirety at www.livewidespreadpanic.com. Get ready for some amazing jams, funky grooves and southern soul in these transmissions, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!



Panic is sounding frickin’ awesome 25 years later...no small feat. Interesting to note that Panic opened up their very first show with Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” 25 years ago (almost to the day) at the Mad Hatter Ballroom on 2/6/86!

Track listing: For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield; first since 11/22/88), You’ll Be Fine (first since 11/12/01), Proving Ground, Arleen (with Randall Bramblett on saxophone) > Drums > Fire on the Mountain (Grateful Dead; first since 10/2/88) > Space Wrangler > Coconut, Bowlegged Woman, Heaven (Talking Heads).

Here’s a review of the 2-night stand, from Honest Tune: The Southern Journal of Jam:

“How many bands can you think of that have made it 25 years, continuing to enamor their fans?  The first groups that likely come to mind are bands as highly regarded as the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, or the Rolling Stones; both of whom have persevered through the loss of key members, addiction, health issues, and an ever changing standard of what is considered "good" music.  The lesser known Widespread Panic is a recent addition to this list and in their 25 years together, they have experienced momentous highs and endured through unthinkable lows.  To the delight of a nation of devoted fans, "The Boys" who met in Athens, GA back in 1986 chose to celebrate the occasion by playing three unforgettable shows at two historic venues.”
