This week's Deadpod features an outstanding second set (only) from March 13, 1982 in Reno Nevada.
While I wish there existed a soundboard of the first set to match this exquisite recording I decided there was no reason not to let you enjoy this great set because it didn't exist.
This set starts out with a powerful reading of 'Feel Like a Stranger' into 'Franklin's Tower'. Jerry is all over both of these with some really sparkling runs, and Brent has come into his own by this time as a member of the band and shines throughout. This show took place the night after John Belushi's death, and that might account for the aborted 'He's Gone' that follows 'Estimated', the band instead going into a beautiful 'Eyes of the World'.
Drums and Space are quite good as well, pay particular attention to the jam leading into 'The Other One' where many locate a 'Lucy in the Skies' or 'Dear Prudence' jam..
The mournful 'Black Peter' seems a good fit on this evening before the band closes out with the rockin' 'Around and Around' and 'Good Lovin'
The 'Don't Ease' encore is missing from this tape, unfortunately.

"I want to say to my sisters and my brothers
Keep the faith
When the storm flies and the wind blows
Go on at a steady pace"
