This week's Deadpod features set 2 from 4/27/85 - the Frost Ampitheater at Stanford University.. This is a fine set, and as it opens with a Scarlet Begonias, we can imagine the delight when Jerry leads the band not into Fire on the Mountain but rather into a sweet version of Eyes of the World.. This duo is such a sweet combo that it alone would justify rating the show highly but the band turns on a dime into a Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad that in turn is also very well executed. Of course this is an 85 show, and Jerry's voice is a little rough at times.. However I enjoy the rest of the set as well, in particular the Phil bombs in the rather abbreviated Other One and the Black Peter.. Hey its even been long enough that I don't cringe nearly as much in hearing a 'Day Job' encore ;)
