The Deadpod

Jun 14, 2019

This one's a keeper... a birthday request from Steve, a friend of the Deadpod, this comes to us from October 2nd, 1972, from Springfield MA.

This is a fine recording from one of the high water marks of the band's history. This 14 song first set consists of well-played versions of many of their standards as well as some wonderful jamming and interplay - especially on 'Bird Song', 'Black Throated Wind' and the almost 21 minute 'Playin' In the Band'.

Please excuse the short introduction - just had a cortisone shot in my hand and its still numb :(


Enjoy this beauty this summer weekend...
