Dead Show/podcast for 2/19/16

This week's Deadpod really comes from one of my favorite years for the band - 1973. This show comes from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana IL, from February 22nd, 1973. The first set starts out with a great rocking version of 'Promised Land' followed by a nice, bright version of 'They Love Each Other'. 'El Paso' follows - check out Phils' bass lines on this one, it too rocks.. Jerry brings out a fabulous 'Deal', with an excellent solo to follow. 'Looks Like Rain' follows a great 'Beer Barrel Polka' tuning. Jerry does an animated 'Tennesse Jed' and Phil follows that with a well done 'Box of Rain'. The 'Playin' in the Band' that follows lets the band spread their jazzy wings a bit and is very enjoyable to my ears.
