Playin' In The Band
Nov. 9, 1973
Winterland Arena

This version of PITB is EPIC, with examples of musical fusion wide and deep. The Grateful Dead produced musical artistry throughout their career but in their most highly artistic years like 72-74, 77, 89/90, they created musical art the likes of which are unparalleled....and this PITB is a perfect example....

Every time I hear this S>F I am stunned by it's MASSIVE creativity...It's just like they're flowing like water but more like a flood or torrents of energy...
