With the 4th falling on a Friday it just seems to be fitting that I play one of the seven shows that the boys played on this date. Since I've already played the 7/4/90 show on the Deadpod, I decided to bring back this beauty from the Summer of 1984.. I happen to think the boys were on a peak during this time (the night before when they played Kansas City is a great show too!), and I decided it would be best to bring you this nice long second set for this holiday Deadpod.
Any set that opens with a Help->Slip->Franklin's is off on the right foot, and then Brent delivers a pretty fair 'Far From Me'.. Estimated into He's Gone always opens up new spaces.. I love the Truckin' out of space into a wonderful Wharf Rat, which for me is the highlight of the set..
Of course its nice to have a US Blues encore to celebrate the 4th!!
