The Deadpod

May 27, 2016

Sometimes the inspiration for a Deadpod will hit me when I'm looking over setlists, trying to see which one fits my mood for the season we're in. This week, i was turned onto a show I hadn't listened to before from one of our contributing listeners, who told me about this , his first Dead show. This comes to us from May 6th, 1978 at the University of Vermont in Burlington VT. This is a fine recording - soundboard in this week's first set, audience in next week's second set but both showcase the band on a night that I think they are clearly 'on'. This set starts with a fine Sugaree, and continues with excellent versions of  Minglewood, Peggy-O. A rockin' Beat It On Down the Line follows, then we head back to the Old West for a great 'Loser'. Looks Like Rain, It Must've Been the Roses and a nice Big River are all well played. Deal closes the set and gets the crowd amped up for the second set to follow..

A huge thank you to everyone who entered the Red Rocks contest, especially those of you so kind as to contribute to the Deadpod.. much much appreciated! 
I only wish I had more CDs to send out - who said CDs are dead? :) 
Finally, as we move into summer.. have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, be safe, and take a moment to remember and reflect upon those who lost their lives for us.
