Got the summertime blues? Go on a long, strange tour with me through time. Every day in the month of July, we’ll feature a vintage recording from the Dead. Tune in on YouTube and join the chat as we explore the wonders of summer tours past. We will get by, we will survive!
For our next stop on the We Will Get By Streaming Tour, we head back to Berkeley, California for the Dead’s finale at the Greek Theatre in 1984.
While the first set has Jerry way down in the mix, the first set in no slouch. The Dead launch into a “Dancing in the Street” into a stunning “Bird Song” to start night three.
The second set kicks off with an unusual Beatles cover of “Why Don’t We Do It In the Road,” and features a great “Uncle John’s Band.” While “Drums” and “Space” usually aren’t stand-outs in my book, this is a journey you don’t want to miss.
To cap off the three night run, the Dead treat Berkeley to a double encore—”Brokedown Palace” and then one final burst of electricity with “Johnny B. Goode.”
