This week's Deadpod features another great request from one of my listeners, this time for the Dead's performance on November 2nd, 1979 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale N.Y. The first set starts with an amazing sequence of Mississippi Half-Step into a wonderful Franklin's Tower, marred just a bit by the fact that the first 2 minutes of the Half-Step are missing from the soundboard tape. I just love Garcia as he across the Rio Grandio.. :) These two songs along go on for a half hour! What a great opening to this show. The rest of the first set, while somewhat predictable by late 70s standards is pleasing and well-played including a very nice Lazy Lightning->Supplication by Bob and a set closing Deal.
I'll play set 2 next week.
