Dead Show/podcast for 4/25/14

This week the Deadpod remains in Vegas, for the second set played on  April 27, 1991. I believe this is as fine a second set as you're likely to find from this Spring tour of 1991. Jerry is in really good shape here it seems as he hardly forgets a lyric and the band certainly plays a wonderful pre-drums set! Opening with Sugar Mag, then comes a heady combination of Scarlet->Fire->Playin->Uncle Johns! Yowza.. the amazing thing is that none of these, to my ears, is the real highlight of the set.. That comes post-drums, following a relatively pedestrian 'Miracle' when Jerry plays a 'Black Peter' for the ages. I know not everyone is a fan of this song, but I happen to love it, and I love this version.
They close the set, with of course, One More Saturday Night, but return to do my favorite encore of this Hornsby era, The Weight..

Wow, surprised how good this set is, makes me rethink the early 90's shows! No cheesy keys & drums that sound like real drums during this show, not the muffled thump of cardboard boxes that plague so man 2 drummer era shows. Thanks a bunch!
