The Deadpod

May 26, 2023

For your Memorial Day weekend we have the second set of the band's performance on May 25, 1974 at the University of California at Santa Barbara. 

After a rocking 'Promised Land' opener, and 'Ship of Fools' we are treated to a wonderful 'Big River' - Keith's piano work here is outstanding. The meat of this set however comes in the wonderful 'Truckin' that really showcases why this was a vehicle for some most excellent deep space explorations. Phil rattles some bones here, especially in the transition to 'Let It Grow'. Jerry has some great solos here in the 'Let It Grow' which slides perfectly into 'Wharf Rat'. An almost perfect 'Sugar Magnolia' follows, then leads into the 'GDTRFB' and, the obligatory,  'One More Saturday Night'.
