The Deadpod

Apr 25, 2014

This week the Deadpod remains in Vegas, for the second set played on  April 27, 1991. I believe this is as fine a second set as you're likely to find from this Spring tour of 1991. Jerry is in really good shape here it seems as he hardly forgets a lyric and the band certainly plays a wonderful pre-drums set! Opening with Sugar Mag, then comes a heady combination of Scarlet->Fire->Playin->Uncle Johns! Yowza.. the amazing thing is that none of these, to my ears, is the real highlight of the set.. That comes post-drums, following a relatively pedestrian 'Miracle' when Jerry plays a 'Black Peter' for the ages. I know not everyone is a fan of this song, but I happen to love it, and I love this version. 

They close the set, with of course, One More Saturday Night, but return to do my favorite encore of this Hornsby era, The Weight..
