The Deadpod

Jun 10, 2022

This one is a treat for me to listen to so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do... this second set from the band's performance at the first 'Day on the Green' on June 8, 1974. These '74 Wall of Sound shows are some of my favorites, as you can tell from the opening 'U.S. Blues' that the boys are here in full force. Keith and Phil are rocking and the entire ensemble sounds great throughout. The 'cosmic' 'Playin in the Band' clocks in at over 24 minutes and despite a scream or two from Donna will definitely raise you to a happy place. For me, there is not much music that makes me happier than an 'Eyes of the World' like this one.. I can't help but relax and let me take me downstream.. 

Thanks for listening my friends..
