The Deadpod

Mar 6, 2020

Here we have a fine second set from the band's last performance at the Uptown Theater in Chicago IL, on February 28, 1981. 

I think this is a very nice recording and an interesting set list, starting with the 'Cold Rain and Snow' opener, through the heart of this one, the 'Terrapin Station' into drums and Space, then a fine 'Other One' and 'Stella Blue'. While there is a bit of funky echo in spots, for me it doesn't diminish what is an excellent set. 

Brent has some interesting sounds in that transition from Terrapin, and I'm always fond of hearing a soulful 'Stella Blue'...
