This week we have the opportunity to experience the 2nd and 3rd sets from the legendary Field Trip which took place on August 27th, 1972 in Veneta Oregon.
While I inadvertently omitted the opening Playin' In the Band from last week's Deadpod - it starts us off this week as we strap in and prepare for flight!
And what a ride this one is.. this is a show you should simply experience for yourself - music that is not only pleasurable but transformational. Don't overlook songs like 'Jack Straw' - you might be surprised there. The Bird Song has been called the greatest ever as has the Dark Star..
Personally I've always felt that the emotional catharsis that comes with 'Sing Me Back Home' to be moving and inspirational.
My words won't and can't do this performance justice. Savor this and see if you don't also feel it is music for the ages.
