Saturday Dead: Jamaica 1982
Bob Marley Performing Arts Center
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Words By J-man
On November 26th, 1982 The Grateful Dead brought their unique blend of rock, psychedelia and soul to Montego Bay, Jamaica for The Jamaica World Music Festival. The show took on a very soulful vibe from the start and progressed through some deep and impressive moments. Though it's rumored that the crowd was small, only around five hundred folks by the time the Dead took the stage, the show was energetic and provided an intimate experience for the true die-hard fans!
Grateful Dead Live at Bob Marley Performing Arts Center on November 26, 1982.
Sugaree, Minglewood Blues, Loser, Women Are Smarter, Althea, Let It Grow Samson & Delilah, Scarlet Begonias-> Fire On The Mountain-> Drums-> Throwing Stones-> Not Fade Away-> Black Peter-> Good Lovin'
When listening through, I'd say listen all of the way through. If your looking for highlights, look no further than the "Sugaree" for some pure Garcia, "Scarlet Begonias>Fire on The Mountain" for the incredible jams and transitions, and the "Not Fade Away" towards the end of the set to wind things up.
All in all, mixed reviews of an interesting experience but well worth the listen. Sit back, grab a coffee or a beer and enjoy!
