The Deadpod

Apr 10, 2015

This week we will listen to the second set from the Dead's performance that took place on April 15th, 1983 in Rochester NY. This is a very long, sometimes meandering set, that clocks in at over one hour and 47 minutes. Despite its length, it seems a bit void of Garcia vocals. The set starts out well enough with a Feel Like A Stranger and Samson and Delilah to get the crowd moving. Brent follows with 'Maybe You Know' a tune I always enjoyed until he stopped performing it in '86. After that we get a very soulful 'He's Gone' which leads into one of only three performances of a little ditty that has been called 'Bob Star' or 'Little Star' .. this leads into a long and quite space drums and space. Five songs follow post space, all pretty well played and ending with a 'Johnny B Goode'. Jerry comes out for the encore with a 'It's All Over Now, Baby Blue' which was done quite often in that slot during this period.
