Happy Mother's Day Weekend! This special Deadpod goes out in honor of all our Mothers..and this one is a huge dose of big ol' Grateful Dead lovin!
This is the second (and third?) set from the band's performance on Mother's Day, May 12, 1974 in Reno Nevada.
As I mentioned last week, this was an outdoor, Wall of Sound show with quite high winds, which complicated things a bit. In fact, Garcia was quite unhappy with their performance, saying afterwards that he wouldn't blame folks if they wanted a refund!
Well I don't agree and hope you don't either.. while this is an embarrassment of riches you must pay particular attention to the Truckin'>Other One, embedded as they are with both a 'Nobody's Fault' jam and a 'Mind Left Body'' jam.. this is quintessential 74 Dead.
