The Deadpod

Aug 13, 2021

This week the Deadpod stays right in Jersey City, for this wonderful show from August of 1976. This show too, took place at Roosevelt Stadium on August 4, 1976. 

We start out with a long, dreamy 'Sugaree' - clocking in at over 14 minutes. Jerry is in good voice at this show, and you will notice that Phil is quite up front in this recording as well. These songs are all played at the slower pace characteristic of 1976, but I find the recording as well as the ensemble work quite pleasing. 

Other highlights for me include a lovely 'Row Jimmy' and a sweet 'Looks like Rain', Donna's voice here is quite lovely and compliments Bobby so well. 'Loser' is a personal favorite, always.  A rockin' 'Music Never Stops' is followed by a great version of 'Scarlet Begonias'. This version, not yet coupled with 'Fire on the Mountain', displays some unique twists in this almost 15 minute version.
