Grateful Dead Dec. 9, 1971
Fox Theatre St. Louis, MO | Listen on archive
You will approve.
Great funk just right in that sweet, rockin' spot. Pig's voice is on, Jerry's on fire, and Keith sounds great.
7Playin' In The Band
Blisteringly hot group solo from about 4:25 onward, including a Phil episode of pure beautiful berserkness.
5Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
In a show overshadowed by its neighbors, this one stands out for coming together just brilliantly. Show needs more love.
6Not Fade Away
Rollicking NFA, raging in a beautiful texture
15Run Run Rudolph
another wonderful delight at Christmas time 1971, a true treat.
7One More Saturday Night
Hot Casey Jones->OMSN to close a tremendous set one.
Show opening muscle-flexer
3Beat it on Down The Line
Lively, crisp version. Great energy.
3Brown Eyed Women
Even in 1971, Jerry could botch the lyrics.
Solid early version with smooth tempo changes.
Tight early version, crackling with energy.
4Big Boss Man
Well played - Pigpen sounding good.
Great early version. Intense jammine pre SSDD. High energy level all around.
Beautiful Jerry vocals highlight this one.
5Hurts Me Too
Tight version with Pigpen sounding great.
Lively. Very well executed.
Bob nails it perfectly. Excellent harmonies.
One of the best. I'm amazed it hasn't beed posted yet.
