While this week's Deadpod may be one of the shorter 2nd sets of the year in 1973, there is still plenty to love in this week's setlist. The set opens with a wonderfully crafted Playin' in the Band, which leads into Row Jimmy and El Paso.. the Loose Lucy that follows has drawn complaints due to its slow tempo.. I also think this song works best when it bouncy, but the boys go into a pretty good Truckin' followed by a fabulous Other One.. that jam goes into a first-rate Wharf Rat.. wow.. when this song is done right there is nothing that comes close... the Me & Bobby McGee that comes out of it is a pleasant surprise.. The boys close with a rather perfunctory Casey Jones, but I'm left quite satisfied with this second set from a stellar year.. the fact that this is a first-rate recording adds to the pleasure. I hope you enjoy it as well..
