The Deadpod

Jan 10, 2020

Hello Friends! 

This week, a show that caught my fancy that for some reason has never been featured here on the Deadpod, but certainly deserves to be.. 

This comes to us from November 1, 1979 and teh Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale NY. 

I think the band always enjoyed the NY area and this is I think, quite a fine and energetic outing. 

This recording starts with an audience patch in 'Jack Straw' but don't let that put you off, its a fine soundboard recording with just a few patches thrown in. Brent and Jerry's interplay really shines on this show, and the band effortlessly shift gears here in the first set from rockers like 'New Minglewood Blues' to more soulful numbers like 'Candyman' and 'Peggy-O' (that latter is  an exceptionally fine version here). 'Looks Like Rain' shines too, and I quite enjoy the Brent offering 'Easy to Love You'.. 

Next week features a *massive* Scarlet>Fire, don't miss it!
