Just Because I Can - Top 5 Dead Show

Those of you who know me well realize that I'm not just a Springsteen fanatic. No no, I'm much more than that. I'm also a former Deadhead. Well, are you ever a former Deadhead? Whatever the case, I've been revisiting my youth for weeks now - I do this each spring, it seems, as that's when we did the most Dead touring. I wish we'd done even more. This March 29, 1990 show from Nassau Colesium remains one of my favorite Dead shows ever. Second set featured Branford Marsalis (Eyes, Eyes, EYES) but honestly, the FIRST set gets overlooked far too often. Effing TIGHT ass start with Jack Straw/Bertha and man I love Brent Mydland's We Can Run. And Masterpiece?

Happy Spring Ya'll.
