The acoustic New Speedway Boogie is outstanding….esp the harmonizing at the end of the song
Today’s Daily Dose of the Dead is the cover of the Bob Dylan song “Just Like Tom Thumb Blues” from the Frost Amphitheatre is Palo Alto, CA on April 27, 1985.
This is the classic we want Phil chant and subsequent excellent stage banter before the song launches. I think this is the best live version of the song the dead ever did.
A very hot show musically at a great small outdoor venue.
"When you’re lost in the rain in Juarez and it’s Easter time too. When your gravity fails you and negativity don’t pull you through. Don’t you put on any airs when you’re lost on Rue Morgue Avenue. They got some hungry creatures there, they’ll surely make a mess out of you.”
