The Deadpod

Dec 24, 2021

Merry Christmas! 

On this Christmas Eve edition of the Deadpod we get to listen to the second set of this fine performance from December 27, 1970 in El Monte California. 

The tape begins with an abbreviated 'Good Lovin' - while I wish we had all of this song, what we have is really good. Pigpen follows with 'In the Midnight Hour' and boy its clear in these two songs what he means to the band. Fine versions of 'Attics' and 'Bobby McGee' follows, then the Chuck Berry 'Around and Around'. The jamming in the following 'St. Stephen>Not Fade Away>Goin' Down the Road>Lovelight' show us the power of this young band. We hear the start of 'Uncle John's Band' but the jig is up and the show has to end...
