This week’s entry for the Deadhead Corner Tune of the Day is Spanish Jam from February 11, 1970 which is perhaps the finest guest sit-in in Grateful Dead history. Starting a four night run in New York (three at the Fillmore East, one at the long-forgotten Ungano’s Night Club) the Dead played after Love and the Allman Brothers. Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green was also apparently in the area, as he came on stage during the Dark Star. Soon after, Duane Allman joined as well (Arthur Lee was playing percussion). From Dark Star the band moves into an outstanding version of Spanish Jam, with the three lead guitarist playing off each other to excellent effect. Gregg Allman joins in for the Lovelight. Check out track 11, but really do yourself a favor and listen from Dark Star until the end.
