Dancin' in the Streets
Sept. 3, 1967
Raw and primal.... Such a clearly expressed and inspired taste of the years of Dead explorations to come. You can hear the heady Dark Star motif materialize as this jam progresses. Jerry's tone has that hollow electric horn effect to it, absolutely mind-roasting. Those story-like tremolo riffs had me picking my jaw up off the floor. You can just feel the white-hot, heavy, primal wattage moving through those amps.
Legend has it Robert Hunter wrote Dark Star while tripping balls outside this show. Absolute must listen. Insanely underrated. This one will blow your socks off, folks
