The Deadpod

Sep 6, 2019

This week's Deadpod features a *monster* Scarlet>Fire from the second set of the band's performance on September 1st, 1979 in Rochester New  York. But first, take a moment to appreciate the unusual intro from Bobby to this second set :)

This Scarlet>Fire is one of those rather underappreciated jams that can stand comparison to the best of  '73 or '74 Dead. Enjoy the places Garcia takes you as he weaves his magic on this ride. This one takes the entire pre-drums portion of the show.

Following the rather short drums>Space, Garcia gives us a fine 'Wharf Rat', then the band settles into a rocking groove, with Miracle, 'Bertha', and 'Good Lovin' to close out the set. They return for a curfew-shortened 'One More Saturday Night'
