Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Soundboard From Ogden Theatre

first_imgAs part of their weekly soundboard release, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has shared a new recording from their sold-out December 15th performance at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. The recording (captured by taper Eric McRoberts) marks the 26th edition of their “Taper Tuesday” series.The band doesn’t just play Grateful Dead music, they create their own versions of it. With teases, mash-ups, and novelty jams, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead is at the peak of jam band excellence.The first set dives right in to Grateful Dead classics, with the debut of “Truckin’ Reprise” that contained a “Throwing Stones” tease. The set ends with a monster “Shakedown Street” with “Chameleon” (Herbie Hancock) teases. The second set heats up with an extended “Greatest Story Ever Told,” and another enormous 32+ minute “Terrapin Suite” that held a Benevento-Russo “Duo Jam” and “Hateframe” tease.The sound erupts with a solid “Good Lovin’” > “The Wheel Reprise” > “Good Lovin’ Reprise” jam, played for the first time, to close the second set. The quintet returns to the stage for an “Goin Down The Road Feelin’ Bad” and “Sugar Magnolia” encore, with a “And We Big You Goodnight” tease closer. You can read a full review of the show here. This is prime Almost Dead jamming!Enjoy the full recording below, from taper Eric McRoberts:Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will appear next at the 2nd annual Fool’s Paradise March 31& April 1 in St. Augustine alongside Lettuce x2, The Floozies, The Motet, a special Manic Science set featuring Manic Focus and Break Science, The Main Squeeze, Organ Freeman, along with Oteil Burbridge and Antwaun Stanley as Artists at Large.
