It was announced just a few days ago that Bob Weir was going to join Phil Lesh for a very a special edition of “Songs to Phil the Air” in the backyard at Terrapin Crossroads. While Bobby had joined Phil just a couple of months ago to celebrate Terrapin Crossroad’s 5th anniversary, it’s always a treat when the two founding members of the Grateful Dead reunite on stage.
The lineup for yesterday’s early evening performance included Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Grahame Lesh, Jason Crosby & Scott Law. What was missing from the usual gang of friends was a drummer. The performance is very similar to the gorgeous set that Holly Bowling did with Phil last year. While some critics will be turned off by the absence of a drummer right from the start, these lineups a rarity and definitely worth a listen.
In addition to the beautiful cover of The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence,” Phil, Bobby and friends performed “The Wheel” and “Cassidy” among other Dead classics.
