Dead Show/podcast for 2/26/16

This sweet second set from 1973 will close out the month of February 2016 for the Deadpod.
Judging from the length of this set I assume this is really not the entire set, however what we have is very pleasing indeed.. Starting off with an early 'Wave That Flag' the boys move through a 'Me and My Uncle' into a well-played if short for the period 'Dark Star'. That moves into an exceptional 'Eyes of the World' .. while not unusual for the period the music excellence here makes me happy every time I hear it. China Doll follows.. enough said.
The boys rock it out following that with an Around and Around, Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad and One More Saturday Night before returning for a Casey Jones encore..
Great sounding Dead here..

I really enjoyed the Dark Star > Eyes > China Doll sequence a lot.

When you first posted this show last week, I recognized the venue, so I checked my notes on past Deadpods, and found that you had played the show from the night before (in Dec 2010/Jan 2011). Interestingly, A LOT of the same songs were played both nights. I don't really have any other knowledge about back-to-back shows, and whether or not this was commonplace or not; but, it would seem that they wouldn't want to play the same songs to the same city--and, therefore, potentially the same fans--in that way. Was this common?
