Dead Show DJ



Shakedown Street
Oct. 31, 1984
Berkley Community Theatre

Like so many Shakedowns, this one is a slow starter. But once that groove takes hold it's Disco Dead magic!!
Not Fade Away
Oct. 31, 1983
Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium

There are moments where the jam takes on a nice funky groove. Brent's an absolute organ grinder on this one.
Estimated Prophet
Oct. 31, 1983
Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium

Bobby goes off the deep end as only Bobby can.
Let It Grow
March 12, 1981
Boston Garden

An absolute shredder that leads into Franklin's to close out a smokin' 1st set
Bird Song
March 12, 1981
Boston Garden

A pristine version. Some beautiful AUD recordings of this show on archive.


Victim Or The Crime
Aug. 16, 1991
Shoreline Amphitheatre

Even on it's own merits it's a really cool version, but because it finds it's way out of Scarlet it becomes all the more enjoyable.
Promised Land
Aug. 16, 1991
Shoreline Amphitheatre

Born out of a Dark Star to end a 1st set, it's really hard not to love this version.
Black Peter
March 13, 1982
Reno Centennial Coliseum

Outstanding version out of Space with a Dear Prudence tease. Also, Bobby hints at the chord progression of what would become Eternity as Space outros into this smokin' O1.
Sept. 16, 1993
Madison Square Garden

Great version to open the 1st set of the 1st show of the Fall '93 MSG run.
Looks Like Rain
Sept. 11, 1973
William and Mary College Hall

C'mon, everyone. Show this version some love!
