The Deadpod

Oct 18, 2019

We go back 41 years to this day in 1978 at Winterland in San Francisco to revisit the band's 2nd in the series of  'From Egypt with Love' concerts.This is a tight, well-played set with the band playing as well together as anyone could ask. The opening 'Sugaree' is massive - don't let the first few minutes of audience patch deter you from listening to this - Garcia soars here. I have to mention 'Big River' as well. Likewise on the 'Peggy-O', one of the best versions of this you might ever hear.  Even 'Stagger Lee' is much above average with a wonderful ending solo. Listen to how well Bob, Donna and Jerry collaborate on 'Looks Like Rain'.

I trust you'll enjoy this respite from the everyday...
