The Deadpod

Jul 24, 2020

A great second set from July 18, 1976 from the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco is on the table for this week's Deadpod. You'll have plenty to choose from here, as the boys stretch it out and deliver a smorgasbord of many of their best songs on this two hour marathon. There are too many highlights to mention all of them, but I would call  your attention to the fine 'Lazy Lightning>Supplication>Let It Grow' trifecta that occurs early in the set - Jerry lays down some extremely interesting notes here unlike most renditions of this song. The Wharf Rat starts spacey and lonely - just like it should.. the massive 'Other One>Saint Stephen>Not Fade Away>Saint Stephen' is notable for the slower pace of Stephen - it sounds mighty fine here. We're not done with the Other One though, as it reappears after the Wheel with the third verse. A long and beautiful Stella Blue follows then a great Sugar Magnolia to end the second set (finally!). The band returns, for what else, Johnny B. Goode.
