The Deadpod

Mar 29, 2024

This week's Deadpod features the second show the band played in 1980, this from the Capitol Theater in Passaic New Jersey on March 30, 1980. 

Brent is fairly new to the band, and finding his way on some of these tunes.. they open with a relatively new 'Alabama Getaway' which goes into 'Promised Land' for a rockin' start to the evening. 'Cassidy' which follows 'Peggy-O' is a bit rushed, but the 'Loser' that follows is quite good. Brent debuts his 'Far From Me' which still needs some work but shows promise. Another highlight is the 'New Minglewood Blues' where Brent's Hammond B3 sounds especially good. The rest of the set is quite good as well - the 'Althea' is well done and Bobby adds alot of energy to the 'Sailor>Saint' combo to close the set.
