A rare but lovely third set is up on this week's Deadpod.. from Winterland in San Francisco, the first show the band played in 1974 on February 22, 1974.
'Hello baby I'm gone goodbye'... as the band opens this set with a beautiful 'Mississippi Half-Step'... love Garcia's silkly guitar on this one.. Bobby revs it up with a smokin' 'Promised Land', nice work by Keith on the piano here. They switch gears completely with a slow, soulful 'Brokedown Palace', but follow up with a great 'Jack Straw'.
The heart of this set follows however with a beautiful 'Eyes', then 'China Doll' and 'Wharf Rat'.. 'Sugar Mag' brings this monster show to a close, but they follow with a 'Uncle John's Band' encore..
