Dead Show/podcast for 9/5/14

This week's Deadpod features a beast of a second set.. but what else can you expect from a show from 1972. This one features some great interplay between Lesh and Garcia throughout. Innocently enough the set starts out with a fat Big River followed by a standard Friend of the Devil and Me & My Uncle, things start getting interesting on the Bird Song.. here we find quite an interesting jam after the first verse as Garcia begins to take the music to some very nice places.. personally I enjoyed the ending jam quite a bit. Truckin' follows, always a great vehicle for exploration, and the band takes off following the verses. A short drum segment then leads Phil to bring out what is a quite good Other One, and in fact  this goes into a classic He's Gone and then *back* into the Other One.. the only such combination I'm aware of. This one had some excellent jamming including what is often referred to as the  'Tiger' jam.  I love the transition into He's Gone.. and back into the Other One for that matter! But wait there's more :) .. a hot Greatest Story,.. Comes A Time mmmmm and then a far out Not Fade Away->Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad->Not Fade Away
who needs an encore after that set list!!
