Dead Show/podcast for 9/19/14

This week's Deadpod takes us back to Dijon France for the second set of the band's amazing performance which took place back on 9/18/74. I have however, taken some liberties with this presentation however, as I omitted the first two songs of set 2, Loose Lucy and Big River, because the vocals in these two are hopelessly lost and cannot be heard. In place of those, I decided to include the 3 songs done as a soundcheck for this show - something titled  'Jerry's Space', as well as Cumberland Blues and Brokedown Palace. I'm not always a fan of soundchecks but I do think you'll enjoy these.
The remainder of the second set retains the audio clarity found in set 1, and while this set probably doesn't reach the musical heights of set 1 there is plenty here to enjoy.
The Eyes->China Doll->He's Gone->Truckin' is as all those titles read, quite pleasing, if not mind-blowing. The most interesting jam of the set probably comes out of drums, when Phil leads them in a most interesting Caution jam. Johnny B. Goode to close the set is quite unusual and shows that the boys thought it had been a good days' work, I think.
