Prompted by a twitter discussion this morning about the merits of Barry Sless over Fake Jerry of DSO, I offer up this show from 2005, the day after Railroad Earth played with Phil Lesh and Friends. Phil was supposed to sit in this night with Railroad, but bailed due to sickness. Barry stepped up to the plate for pretty much the entire first set, both electric and pedal steel.
Everything is worth listening to here, but be warned that the streaming player’s tracklisting gets messed up.
