The Deadpod

Feb 28, 2020

39 years ago the band played a fine show at the Uptown Theater in Chicago, which I'm pleased to begin to present to you today. A fine 'Jack Straw' opener begins things on a high note, and the rest of this first set is varied and quite well played on this fine recording. Some of the highlights include a 'Little Red Rooster' with both some fine slide work and some nice color added by Brent, a great 'Big Railroad Blues' (which ones aren't?), and a near-perfect 'Althea'.  'Let it Grow' segs into 'Deal' to close this enjoyable set of early 80s Dead.
