The Listen to it
link referenced in yesterday's 'Still Truckin' post
now goes to a broadcast of The Dead at Madison Square Garden: 4-25-09
, an Internet radio station, is apparently covering the entire tour.
This Picky Deadhead's opinion is that 4/25/09
is not completely shabby. But with a challenging setlist that includes St. Stephen->The Eleven
, it has a greater history of awesomeness to compete with.
I stand by my initial take that the 4/24/09 Nassau Coliseum
show rocks out. See for yourself:
on the right with the long hair is Warren Haynes, of Government Mule fame. [[9-6-09: Substitute Easy Wind for Goin' Down the Road, same night's performance. The whole show now streams at Archive.org if you want to check out GDTR.]]
Oh, and FWIW, here's Nassau Coliseum: September 7 1973, (Contains Here Comes Sunshine as the second set opener.)
