WARLOCKS(Grateful Dead) - Stuck inside a Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again(1989)
Well did you know the name of the Grateful Dead before they became the Grateful Dead? well it was of course the Warlocks.  Here are two Dylan covers from some very famous concerts which took place on the 9th & 10th of Oct 1989 at the Hampton Coliseum.

For some reason the Band wanted to have a low profile for these shows, so the venue was not included as part of the regular ticket sale for the East Coast fall tour. Instead, tickets went on sale at local outlets ten days before the concerts, with the band billed as "Formerly the Warlocks" instead of the Grateful Dead. When the band came to town, the marquee of the Coliseum read "The Warlocks", which had been the Grateful Dead's original name for a few months in 1965.

In a 1993 poll of Grateful Dead tape traders, the October 9, 1989 show was ranked number 4 on the list of all-time favourite Dead concert tapes, and the October 8 show also appeared on the list, That is pretty impressive judging by the amount of concerts the GD have done.

I'll have to say it - I hate that Dylan/Dead live album and have never enjoyed The Dead's covers of Bob songs. They sound flabby to me. Still, I think I'm in a small minority there! Never understood the whole Dylan and The Dead thing.

SB - I agree the Dylan/Dead album is pretty weak, good album cover 'tho. I actually love the Dead covering Dylan, both the Dead and Garcia official albums are pretty good in my book, but it is a matter of taste I suppose.
