He's Gone
Facemelt in seattle
7
Me and Bobby McGee
Out of THe Other One...beatiful and inspired
11
Here Comes Sunshine
In a song that is typically a highlight reel, this version is no different. Beautiful jam
8
Casey Jones
Laid-back show opener...cool points for the transition into unusual
11
Greatest Story Ever Told
Out of show-opening Casey jones...sweet
7
Brown Eyed Women
Beautiful, with some very nice work by Weir...slow and tasty
6
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
28
Playin' In The Band
Slow, experimental, and awesome
6
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
10
The Other One
A being of pure energy split in two by Me and Bobby McGee.
5
Jack Straw
Purrs along like a smooth stretch of highway. The whole first set has understated beauty. A gem.
6
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!
4
Loser
Beautiful Tender version from a tremendous show, exquisite
5
They Love Each Other
Fantastic set 2 appearance, one of only a little over a handful.
6
Box of Rain
Beautiful early Box Keith is tremendous
6
Bertha
This is terriffic whole show is a keeper, great stuff, Phil on full out assault.
7
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.
7
Black Peter
powerhouse performance from a top flight show.
1
The Race Is On
Clearly the honey year for this tune
