The Deadpod

May 6, 2022

As this weekend is the first weekend in May, we not only celebrate our Mothers, but the Run for the Roses! Naturally I felt this called for a rendition of 'The Race Is On', and this one comes to us from the bands European tour of the Fall of 1974. Specifically from Paris on September 21, 1974. 

This first set which we will hear this week shows considerable change from those European shows of 50 years ago.. the band is I think, a bit more mellow and more jazzy in my opinion. Keith is adding alot of nice color to these songs as well. Here we have a long and unusual setlist, with highlights for me being besides the 'Race Is On' the nice 'Sugaree', a fun 'Loose Lucy' and a great 'Eyes of the World' into 'China Doll' to close  the set (!). I think this is quite a nice recording and hope you enjoy it.
