Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Spotify Playlist


Joe Russo’s Almost Dead recently arrived on streaming platforms, with the Grateful Dead tribute band releasing several choice live recordings. This week’s Saturday Stream presents a Spotify Playlist of some of JRAD’s lengthiest, most jammed-out tracks shared to date.

Common across nearly every Joe Russo’s Almost Dead show are extensive improvised sequences, often launched from less-common jam vehicles like “Cumberland Blues,” “Jack Straw,” “They Love Each Other” and “Reuben & Cerise.” Stretched out versions of those classic Dead tunes performed by drummer Joe Russo, keyboardist Marco Benevento, bassist Dave Dreiwitz and guitarists Scott Metzger and Tom Hamilton are featured within the playlist that also presents extended takes on “Eyes Of The World,” “Truckin’,” “Let It Grow,” “Uncle John’s Band,” “Bird Song” and more.

Each of the playlist selections clock in at 15 minutes or longer, with the band’s October 20, 2018, performance of the “Terrapin Station” suite topping out at over 35 minutes. Stream the Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Spotify Playlist below:
