The Deadpod

Jul 5, 2013

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! I do hope you had a great holiday, and I hope this second set from 6/22/73 helps make the rest of your holiday weekend even better! This is really a fine set, and as fine an example of the Dead improvisational skills as any of their shows. While this is almost a complete show in itself, this 2 hour second set features both more straight ahead songs as well as some real cosmic explorations, especially by Garcia and Lesh in the post -Truckin' jam. 

The show starts with one of, if not the finest 'Here Comes Sunshines' that you're likely to hear.. Black Peter and Big Railroad Blues are particular favorites of mine here in this first 'part' of set 2.. Once we hit the jam out of He's Gone and into Truckin' we move into  full bore jazz like improvisation... sit back and enjoy as the band takes us on a great journey here through The Other One, then into a fine Wharf Rat.. The Sugar Magnolia is a natural closer, but the boys go on to end the set with a nice Casey Jones then come out for a signature 'Johnny B. Goode' encore. Whew....
