The Deadpod

Nov 20, 2015

This week's Deadpod features a fine second set from November 21st, 1985 at the Kaiser Auditorium in Oakland CA. Energetic and well-played throughout this one features a fine set list with two songs that would never again be played by the band, 'She Belongs to Me' and 'Walkin' The Dog'...

They open with a wonderful 'Shakedown Street' that rather oddly, goes into a great 'Crazy Fingers'.. I've read that the curtain went up behind the band to a wonderful 'Blues from Allah' mural at that point in the show.... this goes into a nicely played 'Playin' In the Band' with a great jazzy jam leading into the final GD version of 'She Belongs to Me'.. love hearing Garcia sing this.. following drums and space they go into 'The Other One' without the bombs.. Wharf Rat follows then a return to Playin' in the Band and a maniacal 'Gimme Some Lovin' flows into 'In The Midnight Hour'.. the boys return for the 'Walkin' the Dog' encore.. whew!
