Dark Star
Feb. 26, 1973
Pershing Municipal Auditorium

This is a very beautiful piece of music, my favorite kind of Dead. The build to the verse is outstanding, and after a few minutes of a well orchestrated spacey transitive nightfall, Phil shows us whose the boss with some heavy rifts before they play a fantastically mellow Eyes of the World.
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower

Yeah Phil means business this whole show. Video of the first set is on youtube. Wish there was video of Phil crunchin' away on this HSF

The boys get real excited by the crowd post space and decide to play quite a beautiful, awe inspiring Terrapin > Other One > Stella > Sugar Mag. Great licks and rhythms by everyone and a fun filled energy. you can just hear they're a couple happy guys to be up on that stage

Meadowlands Arena

Certainly a ragin' version, really big and powerful at the end. Great rythyms! But a few vocal flubs from Jerry really take away for me. However, I thought the post drums section of this show was as outstanding as the short 2 minutes at the end of this JS. if you got the time for this, check out the rest
