The Deadpod

Apr 22, 2016

This week we travel back to the spring tour of 1978 to bring you an excellent recording of a show the boys did back on April 19th, 1978 in Columbus Ohio. They come to play as they open up with a smokin' hot 'Bertha' which then goes into 'Good Lovin' to start the set. This serves to highlight perhaps the slower paced but still beautiful 'Friend of the Devil' that follows. 'Passenger' shows how strong Donna can be, and is probably my favorite tune of hers. A beautiful 'Candyman' then follows, along with a short but straight-ahead 'Cassidy'. 'Peggy-O' and Weir's 'Me & My Uncle->Big River' follow and lead us into a rockin' set-closing 'Deal'. All in all a very well-played and great sounding first set..
