Phil Lesh & Friends Recreate Classic Dead Show From 1987 At Terrapin Crossroads [Full Video]

first_imgPhil Lesh and his ever-evolving cast of bandmates took the stage inside the Grate Room at his Terrapin Crossroads venue last night to recreate one of the Grateful Dead‘s classic shows. The performance on Wednesday at Lesh’s family-friendly venue was a full-set recreation of his former band’s 1987 concert originally held at Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California on the same date, November 14th.Wednesday’s concert was the first of three “On This Day In Dead History” shows that Lesh has planned for this week, with the next two scheduled for Friday, November 16th, and Sunday, November 18th. Lesh was joined on Wednesday by Anders Osborne and Stu Allen on guitar, Steve Molitz on keys, and Nathan Graham holding down the rhythm section. Thankfully, by the power of Nugs.net, the entire show was streamed live from the San Rafael venue for Deadheads around the country to turn on, tune in and enjoy.Phil Lesh & Friends – Terrapin Crossroads – 11/14/18[Video: Nugs.net]The show begins right at the video’s 10:41 mark with that infamous, bold D-minor chord of “Shakedown Street” powering its way through the speakers. The lengthy opening jam provided the lineup with an immediate opportunity to stretch their group-mind abilities and take the title track from their 1978 Shakedown Street LP for a walk through the woods, just as the Dead used to do it. The first set continued after some solid jamming with “Little Red Rooster”, “Althea” and a cover of Bob Dylan‘s “When I Paint My Masterpiece”. The set would come to a close with the band playing through a fun version of The Meters‘ “Hey Pocky A-Way” followed by the always lively “Deal”, with Stu Allen leading the way on vocals for the dance-friendly song. To make for an even better free show stream experience, fans were encouraged to stick around at setbreak to tune into a performance from Colonel & The Mermaids.Set two started out hot with the galloping rhythm of “Maggie’s Farm” before the band quickly transitioned into “Cumberland Blues”. The second set was then off and running with an extended “Playing In The Band” > “Terrapin Station” segment, the latter featuring Phil trading off vocal duties with Allen. “Drums” > “Space” followed, as was customary by the Dead’s nightly setlists at that point in their career. The band continued with a stretch of Dead favorites (“I Need A Miracle” > “Stella Blues” > “Throwing Stones”) before ending with Bobby “Blue” Bland classic “Turn On Your Love Light”, best known to Deadheads as a quintessential Ron “Pigpen” McKernan live tune. Phil and company returned to the stage (following his organ donor rap) to close out the night with their cover of Bob Dylan’s “Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)”.Below, fans can also tune into the original audio from the Dead’s 1987 Long Beach performance below to hear to how well Phil and his new band did at revisiting the old show.Grateful Dead – 11/14/87 – Full Audio[Audio: Uploaded by Johnathan Aizen]Fans hoping to attend the next “On This Day In Dead History” show on Friday can click here for tickets.
