The Deadpod

Mar 20, 2020

My hope is that this podcast, this music, can bring a little joy and light into your life during this dark and scary time... 

This week we'll hear the second set from the band's performance on March 23, 1972 from the Academy of Music in New York City. While it is not as long as that massive first set from last week, I think it is uniformly good. 'Truckin' starts things off, nice tempo, lots of energy. The 'Ramble on Rose' is great.. Pig follows with 'Two Souls in Communion' and we're reminded what a loss was coming when he passed... 

'Mexicali Blues' features some nice flourishes from Jerry, then we have the Dark Star.. unique as all Dark Stars are, certainly jazzy and complex. I've read different reactions to this Star, some positive some not so much.. give it your space and see where it leads..

Out of the Dark Star ... Pig gives us the 'Big Boss Man'.. love it.. 

they close with Not Fade Away>Goin' Down the Road>Not Fade Away.. Bobby goes hoarse from screaming.... :) what a night.. 

hope you enjoy it..
