68The Other One
40 minutes of hugeness, wow
17Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Sharp vocals + tight band = great music!
16China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
From DP 23...Listen to this version with headphones or turned up loud...one of my favorite pieces of Dead music!
Dick's Picks 23 version
Jerry doin' his own version of chicken pickin'
33Playin' In The Band
DP #23 from Baltimore...yet another jazz exploration that winds and weaves and delights. More introspective than intense & quite worthy!
Sweet rendition. Almost sounds like they’re trying to get back to Bird Song before Phil starts The Other One.
Definately should be in the converation as heady. Smokin' second set opener to this very fine show.
18Sing Me Back Home
As heartfelt as the Europe versions. Worth a listen. Lots of epic stuff on DP 23.
11Friend of the Devil
great September 72 version
Powerful version from one of the strongest overall September '72 shows.
With tasteful hippychick tambo accompaniment. the Wolfson aud drops us in the crowd - levitating raw power.
2Me and My Uncle
Total badassery. This one bites down hard and has a little menace to it, as befits a song about murder.
6Uncle John's Band
This show has biting hardness throughout, then this seems a bit la-la until the 7/4 parts, and that grit returns with crunching nastiness. Excellent!
1One More Saturday Night
Smokin' hot encore to finish off one brilliant mother of a show. OMSN isn't many folk's fave tune, but this one just rocks hard.
Keith is great in this mix on Dick's Picks 23, this song kicks off a great show!
