Dead Show/podcast for 4/26/13

This week's Deadpod features set 2 from 4/27/85 - the Frost Ampitheater at Stanford University.. This is a fine set, and as it opens with a Scarlet Begonias, we can imagine the delight when Jerry leads the band not into Fire on the Mountain but rather into a sweet version of Eyes of the World.. This duo is such a sweet combo that it alone would justify rating the show highly but the band turns on a dime into a Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad that in turn is also very well executed. Of course this is an 85 show, and Jerry's voice is a little rough at times.. However I enjoy the rest of the set as well, in particular the Phil bombs in the rather abbreviated Other One and the Black Peter.. Hey its even been long enough that I don't cringe nearly as much in hearing a 'Day Job' encore ;)

A very nice, crisp set indeed, Professor! Thanks! Love the drums>space>wheel particularly. Just like you with Day Job, I've never understood the love for EOTW, no matter how nicely played, but, to each his own, eh?

As a fan of '85 shows myself, I would love to see you post the 9/3/85 show from KCMO. It was a strange night, but really a great setlist, particularly Set 2, which starts with the last ever Cryptical Envelopment>The Other One>Cryptical Envelopment series. The first set has a nice country feel to it, too with Dire Wolf and Cassidy. Drums>Space were way out there like this April show, too. Red Rocks drom a couple days later also was a good show.

Yes, the transitions from song to song early on we're quite well executed, and I love when a good Space emerges into a sweet, sweet Wheel. Another '85 gem!
