The 95 San Diego SOMA show was performed in front of an intimate crowd and broadcast via radio. Dan Healy, the Grateful Dead’s longtime audio engineer, was on board as the recording engineer. Despite it being a radio broadcast, the band was comfortable performing with experimental soloing and joking with the crowd.
The SOMA show features compelling renditions of classic songs with the band exhibiting great energy throughout the set. Highlights from the early show include LeRoi’s performance on Proudest Monkey, I’ll Back You Up in the encore as well as an exceptional Drive In Drive Out. This version of Don’t Burn the Pig is an early jam, different from the later studio release on Before These Crowded Streets.
