Dead show/podcast for 4/13/12

This week's Deadpod features the second set from the band's performance on April 21st, 1978 at Rupp Arena on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, Kentucky. While the reports I've read on this show indicate that it was not nearly full, the band puts out a top-notch effort and delivers a fun and well-played second set. Highlights for me include the outstanding Stella Blue (this is the version included on 'So Many Roads', the 'Staying Alive' jam out of drums, the Playin' in the Band (and the reprise) and of course, Werewolves of London.. Enjoy my friends!

Thanks Professor for the Europe 72 playlist! I don’t own that collection and it’s nice to hear such a great recording from a year that I don’t look towards enough!

Thanks for playing this. The liner notes to my copy of So Many Roads say that the date is 4/28/78 but The Deadheads Taping Compendium agrees with your 4/21/78 date.

Stella Blue. Enough said. This show is excellent all the way around.
