17I Know You Rider
The Other One-> Spanish Jam-> I Know You Rider. The Spanish Jam has China Cat teases. Really interesting 2nd set here!
High energy ender here. Quite enjoyable!
27The Other One
Totally uniqueThe Other One>Spanish Jam>Space>Feelin' Groovy Jam>IKYR speaks for itself! One of the only "naked" riders post-1970.
5The Race Is On
The most shit-kickinest version I know. Real swagger and Phil bombs early in the set.
12Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Great high-energy show opener. 30-31 March '73 often overlooked. Give a listen and you wont regret it.
Nice banging and clanging solos here and a damned fine backwoods country vibe to this whole first set.
So fine. Jer and Keith are so playful and so fast, Bobby's on.
Triumphant and building, reaches one peak after another. Beautifully harmonised.
14They Love Each Other
This song gets better and better during the Spring '73 tour. Here it grooves with so much butt in it, just try to sit still.
17Playin' In The Band
An immense, killer set closer. This show shows all the different faces of the Dead and this Playin should have many many fans.
This whole progression they do is my favorite piece of jamming i've ever heard
11Greatest Story Ever Told
Off the hook
Soothing but energetic. The start of an epic jam.
5Box of Rain
another great 1973 Box of Rain
Truckin'->Drums->The Other One->Spanish Jam->I know you rider. 1973 Magic pure good ol' grateful dead.
fun and energetic version a blast of country rock. short and sweet blazer.
hot encore, love a casey jones encore.
6Feelin' Groovy Jam
OO space jam > Feelin Groovy >IKYR
Bright, snappy, and full of mello P&V.
Check Billy on this Sugaree.
Unknown Genre - iTunes. Kreutzmann drives this hovercraft - as he seems to in all of the great Berthas of this time. Look out for the guitars.
