Grateful Dead June 24, 1970
Capitol Theatre Port Chester, NY | Listen on archive
28Attics of My Life
If you want a DS->Attics, check this out...EPIC
6The Other One
NFA -> Easy Wind. Thrilling transition and a showcase version!
42Not Fade Away
Listen to it and see...
25China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
From the best show of all time.
9Don't Ease Me In
Acoustic version, beautiful and tight. Don't miss the acoustic set in the rush to the late show.
2nd ever in a triple Dark Star sandwich. Choral singing, not fully developed but part of some of the best damned Dead you'll ever hear. Believe me.
Blast off from Dark Star with a pumped audience that pays off big time.
14Feelin' Groovy Jam
Very brief, but the way it connects the 2nd Dark Star to Sugar Mags maintains the crazy energy of this legendary Dark Star suite
10Friend of the Devil
Legendary show, this FOTD is deserving
6Me and My Uncle
The link between the stellar NFA>Wind and famous following sequence.
9Swing Low Sweet Chariot
Mandolin and gospel harmonies help the crowd come down from a very lysergic show.
Opening of a very famous show. It's like you're in the balcony with the AUD.
5Let Me In
Rare, gut-wrenching ballad.
The reason we all love 1970 and the two set acoustic/electric format. Don't miss the NRPS set from this night either!
"Mountain Jam tuning" to open the show
4New Minglewood Blues
Love these '70 & earlier Minglewoods. I love the way Bobby screams the lyrics. They sound like a punk/grunge garage band. Later versions too tame
Interesting song and show. Not a good recording and not the best show but worth a listen. Honky Tonk Women? From NFA on, it sounds like the Dead.
1China Cat Sunflower
Strong China Cat! Hitting every note! Strong! Happy people all around!!
