This week's Deadpod featu res a great set of music, from the second of three sets that took place back on May 26th, 1973 at the old Kezar Stadium in San Francisco CA. As I understand it this was an unusually warm and sunny day in San Francisco and the band's performance matched the weather. The Here Comes Sunshine that opens this second set is in my opinion, one of the better ones the band every played. El Paso follows, then a Loser that is notable for the wonderful interplay between Jerry and Bob.. Beat It on Down the Line is always a crowd pleaser, then Donna Jean sings 'You Ain't Woman Enough....'.. I always get a kick out of that.. Phil follows with a nice Box of Rain, then the highlight of this set, the China->Rider. Not to denigrate either song, but catch the really kewl transition between these two.. its unique and not the ordinary way the band blends these two together..
You'd think that would be enough, but not on this day.. the boys follow with Big River, and excellent Bertha and an Around and Around to keep the crowd dancin'.. then they'll be back for set THREE next week here on the Deadpod..
