Episode 42: Soldier Field - 7/11/95
SURPRISE! With all of the cryptic clues and messages we've been posting on our social media pages, it's all led to this - the return of Live On 4 Legs Podcast! We thank you for your patience while we've been on hiatus, but we're back and ready to rock! This week we'll introduce one of our new co-hosts John Farrar and dig into a show that has made a major impact on this band over the years, Soldier Field from 1995. There was a lot going on with the band at the time - the fallout from the Ticketmaster lawsuit, the fallout from Eddie's food poisoning incident in San Francisco, No Code's presence looming and trying to follow up what would be the final Grateful Dead performance with Jerry Garcia. The band was handed a major task on a major stage and guess what? They hit a home ru... err, okay NFL Stadium, they scored a touchdown. We'll talk a lot about the raw sound of 1995 and how the band was gelling with Jack Irons at the time. Songs such as Corduroy, Habit and Not For You were major players, but they also pulled out some weirder stuff such as Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone. That mixed with Let Me Love Open The Door made for an unforgettable moment on this night. So we're back, and expect us here on our new release day every Wednesday for now on instead of Friday.
