Grateful Dead LA 1991

June 1, 1991 – The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast

Mike Millard captured the Grateful Dead at the LA Colosseum on June 1, 1991 and we get to hear it, straight from the master tape. I play Shakedown Street, Bertha, and Not Fade Away.

Joan Osbourne & Phil & Friends – China Doll 2006

I forgot that Joan Osbourne toured with Phil Lesh & Friends for a bit. This is of course the post-Jerry, Phil Lesh vehicle (in this case with Trey Anastasio), but they sound wonderful. The sax player is a nice touch. Phil’s bass brings the Grateful Dead bottom to this contemporary performance.

Joan’s voice is strong and full of emotion, as always (I love her), and she does China Doll justice. I am not a Deadhead and I just stumbled upon this while on YouTube, but it was such a delightful surprise, I wanted to share it with you all. It’s from July 6, 2006 and the whole show is available, for free, on Archive.org. Good stuff. Enjoy.
