Grateful Dead Dec. 18, 1973
Curtis Hixon Convention Hall Tampa, FL | Listen on archive
40Weather Report Suite
The boys crank it into some serious high gear jamming in this one. Noice! Lesh: 'This is the quiet part folks'
A version bubbling with creativity. Everyone came to play
16Greatest Story Ever Told
This version is rip roarin' fun!
12China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Jazzy and sweet as sugar. Unique stuff from Bob.
3They Love Each Other
Funky, Jerry puts it on, and ends on a dime.
15Eyes Of The World
Jerry's String broke leaving Phil and Bob to exchange solos!
The band has come together, the vocals are warm, the solos are sharp, so strap on boys and girls 'cause this show just ignites from here on out....
Great row jimmy into great WRS into DS into EYES into WR. Must be heard.
Out of a great EYES. Beautiful. Dick was off by one night for his first pick!
Wonderful version........sweet 73.
5Uncle John's Band
Elegant. Closes out a great show.
16Let It Grow
Flawless, vibrant, and has a great jam in middle.
3Me and My Uncle
The piano in the conclusion makes this otherwise good version incredible.
2Beat it on Down The Line
Good version in an epic concert. One of the best bits of the first set. Second set is cosmic 73 stuff.
Great version, very energetic and perfectly executed. Easily overlooked and overshadowed by the rest of this amazing show.
Listen to Keith growl...
3Don't Ease Me In
I usually always skip this song, but I really dig Bobbys playing in this one!
It struts & swaggers in that honey, country-tinged '73 way that we've come to relish & rely on. From one of the best shows from one of the best years.
1Looks Like Rain
Everyone contributes nicely
5Mind Left Body Jam
Short but sweet
