He's Gone
Facemelt in seattle
12
Me and Bobby McGee
Out of THe Other One...beatiful and inspired
15
Here Comes Sunshine
In a song that is typically a highlight reel, this version is no different. Beautiful jam
11
Casey Jones
Laid-back show opener...cool points for the transition into unusual
15
Greatest Story Ever Told
Out of show-opening Casey jones...sweet
10
Brown Eyed Women
Beautiful, with some very nice work by Weir...slow and tasty
9
Row Jimmy
Right around the time of my favorite version (6.30.73) and it is sublime, like everything the Dead touched in mid-73
32
Playin' In The Band
Slow, experimental, and awesome
8
Truckin'
Swingin' and groovin'...Phil takes charge on forgotten first verse..Bob drops an f-bomb but seems to censor himself on "ain't it a shame" line. Funny
15
The Other One
A being of pure energy split in two by Me and Bobby McGee.
7
Jack Straw
Purrs along like a smooth stretch of highway. The whole first set has understated beauty. A gem.
12
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Super mellow and smooth, understated grace - like the rest of the first set here - and one cool '73 beauty of a transition to Rider. Overlooked!
5
Loser
Beautiful Tender version from a tremendous show, exquisite
11
They Love Each Other
Fantastic set 2 appearance, one of only a little over a handful.
9
Box of Rain
Beautiful early Box Keith is tremendous
10
Bertha
This is terriffic whole show is a keeper, great stuff, Phil on full out assault.
11
You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Donna sounds fantastic here, and Jerry just glistens on the guitar backing her up. Great C&W Dead.
11
Black Peter
powerhouse performance from a top flight show.
5
The Race Is On
Clearly the honey year for this tune
3
Beat it on Down The Line
I'd say this one's pretty nice.
3
Promised Land
High energy through out. Keith and Jerry are really feeling it.
3
Big River
Another hot one from '73.
3
Sugar Magnolia
Can be easy to overlook '73 Sugar Mags since they played it so much , but this one's solid.

Johnny B. Goode
Fun finish to this underrated gem of a show!
