A nice fat summer show that marks its anniversary this weekend is up for this week's Deadpod..
This comes to us from Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City NJ, and took place on July 18th, 1972.
We'll listen to most of the first set this week - this is a wonderful show, and while Pigpen isn't there (he was sick we're told).. it marks one of the first big stadium shows and I think the Dead did it up right...
I especially enjoy the tempo on the China Cat (a bit slower than you're used to hearing.. ) and of course the wonderful Bird Song, Sugaree and Loser.. besides we get a Stella Blue in set 1!
