The Deadpod

Jun 7, 2024

A fine show from the comeback year of 1976 graces this week's Deadpod. This is from June 10, 1976 at the Boston Music Hall in Boston. The thirteen song first set should provide plenty of chances to reflect on how fortunate we hare to have this music after all these years.. 

In general this set, as most from this time period, shows the band concentrating on tight arrangements with powerful singing, perhaps at the expense of more free-flowing jamming. Some of the highlights here include a great 'Music Never Stopped', a short but sweet 'Sugaree', and of course a lovely 'Mission In the Rain', a song that did not last long in the Dead's rotation, but of course did more so in Jerry's solo work. 

I'd be remiss to not point out the lovely harmony on 'Looks Like Rain' with Bobby and Donna, as well as Keith's up front piano throughout. The closing 'Might As Well' is notable for Phil's unique bass..
