I think this second set from 7/31/82 is a fitting treat for this 3 day Memorial Day weekend. This one is a real keeper.. it starts out with an incredible Scarlet ->Fire.. Jerry really takes the lead here with a number of very nice solos, each different and each wonderful to listen to.. the seque into Fire is very nicely done as well.
They follow with an enteretaining reggae-esq Estimated, then a somewhat fast Eyes goes into a great Drums segment, Phil leads them out from there into a very interesting Uncle John's Band.. the Truckin' that follows has a bit of a false start but a strong finish, and this leads into the highlight of the set, a gorgeous Morning Dew.. the boys warp it up with a Saturday night and a rather anti-climatic Dough knees encore..
Still I can't imagine anyone went away displeased..

You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:
The Deadpod is made possible through the kind financial support of my listeners. I can't thank you enough.
Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.. and take a moment to remember the sacrifices of the Men and Women who we honor this Memorial Day.
