Full Audio: Phil Lesh Recreates 1984 Show At Terrapin Crossroads

first_imgPicking up where they left off earlier this month, Phil Lesh & Friends commemorated the Grateful Dead’s calendar year of 1984 last night with a performance of the Dead’s October 12, 1984 show from the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, ME. As per usual, photographer Jay Blakesberg and Lesh sat down before the show to rap a little about the year in question. Among other topics discussed were Jerry Garcia’s reluctance to bust out “Dark Star,” recording sessions at Fantasy Studios and the formation of the Tapers Section and Rex Foundation.Alongside Lesh were Terrapin veterans Stu Allen and Scott Law on guitar, keyboardist Scott Guberman and drummers Ezra Lipp and Cochrane McMillan. Of note from the October 12, 1984 performance at the Augusta Civic Center were the Dead’s final performance of the traditional “On The Road Again,” as well as a rarity in the Brent Mydland-penned “Don’t Need Love,” which would only be played several more times thereafter, finally getting shelved completely in 1986.You can listen to last night’s Phil Lesh & Friends show in its entirety via Quinfolk below:Setlist: Phil Lesh & Friends at Terrapin Crossroads, San Rafael, CA – 2/22/16Set I: Feel Like A Stranger, It Must Have Been The Roses, On The Road Again, Jack-A-Roe, It’s All Over Now, Cumberland Blues, The Music Never StoppedSet II: Cold Rain And Snow, Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance, Don’t Need Love > Uncle John’s Band > Drums > Playin’ In The Band > Uncle John’s Band > Morning DewEncore: Donor Rap, Good Lovin’[Photo via Dave Vann]last_img
