Listen To Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Debut Led Zeppelin’s “Moby Dick” In 2015

first_imgLast week, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead released a soundboard recording of the group’s performance at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri, on April 25th, 2015 for their weekly Taper Tuesday series. The release was dubbed “The Wayback Machine Edition,” as the group’s 4/25/2015 performance marked the 25th performance by the Grateful Dead-inspired band. This week, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead continues this throwback trend with a second “Wayback Machine Edition” of Taper Tuesday, this time with the release of the soundboard of the group’s 22nd show—a performance on April 22nd, 2015, at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Releases Throwback Audio From 4/25/2015 St. Louis ShowFor their April 2015 show in Minneapolis, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead was certainly in proper form, opening with the prelude and part one of the “Weather Report Suite” and later closing out the first set with a thirty-minute long “Terrapin Suite.” Though the group uses the music of the Grateful Dead as a springboard for their innovative and energized jams, the band has developed a rabid group of fans because of their ability to shy away from convention and make each performance truly their own. For the 1st Avenue show, rather than going into a traditional “China Cat Sunflower” / “I Know You Rider” combo that the Grateful Dead leaned heavily on, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead made a detour through an eleven-and-a-half rendition of “The Eleven” before moving from “China Cat” into “Rider.” Notably, the 4/22/2015 show also saw the band debut their cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Moby Dick,” a cover that has only been played once since at Brooklyn Bowl this past year on March 10th.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Announces Two Thanksgiving Philly DatesYou can take a listen to Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s performance on April 22nd, 2015, at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota below, plus take a look at the setlist from the night, courtesy of Peter Costello.[Photo: Sam Shinault] Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | 1st Avenue | Minneapolis, MN | 4/22/2015Set One: Weather Report Suite Prelude (Instr) > Weather Report Suite Part One (Instr) > Let it Grow (SM), Help On The Way (TH) > Slipknot! > Moby Dick* >Terrapin Suite + (TH)Set Two: Playing In The Band + (SM) > Ramble On Rose # (TH) >Truckin & (SM) -> China Cat (TH) -> The Eleven + (TH/JR) -> I Know You Rider (All)Encore: Viola Lee Blues $$ (ALL)Notes: * Led Zeppelin Cover, First Time Played | + With “Let It Grow” teases (TH) | # With “Mephisto” (Benevento Russo Duo) Teases (MB) | & With “The Eleven” teases (TH) & “New Speedway Boogie” Teases (MB) | $$ With “China Cat” & “The Eleven” teases (TH) & a “Feel Like A Stranger” Jamlast_img read more
