thnx 4 the pristine updae, like your stealth filing syste. Ore this cassette out, pretty well circulated but as with alot of show, now even better due to BERTHA. Peace, Pig Street
Jerry's clear, pure tones on Uncle John both lift my soul and break my heart at the same time.
set 2 maybe the best dead I've ever heard.china/rider always cool and this one smokes. FIRST AND BEST TLEO...it just bounces and jingles. KAV
Absolutely the best. Many Many thanks, I am grateful. As are the many that take the time to siten to this full set.
I loved shows where 2nd set started with Chinacat/rider. No matter how crazed the crowd was, everyone was in a good mood and stoked when they heard those.
The band seems to be making a very special effort right from the start with "China Cat." Jerry takes a fresh and mature approach to his standard guitar riffs on this song and throughout. The band has matured here (but they are still young!). They sound well-rested, rehearsed and energized. The song line-up is solid, with many new ones being introduced. There is no space music, per say -- it's all beef! "Truckin'" to "Eyes" is a personal favorite. And on "Chinacat," hearing Jerry once again sing: "I wish I was a headlight on a northbound train," this time from 1973, is simply too awesome for words. The God's honest truth? This Website rocks! Many thanks.
The sound quality of this recording is Excellent-plus! This date is marked by many firsts. In this set, the band introduces stunning live versions of "Eyes of the World," "China Doll," and "TLEO," the later played by Mr. Garcia straight from the heart. He connects here. And the band rocks on "Truckin," "Big River," and Chuck Berry's "Around and Around." We miss Jerry badly. Thanks for a fine listening.
I was born that year, in Nov. I started listening to GD when I was 13 and started going to shows around 15/16...this was my fav. leg - lost the tape - found this site - hallelujah! The transition btw truckin and eyes is a place i'd could live forever. thanks!
thanks man made me cry its nice to go home lots love dh
Yeah, "The Eyes" in Jersey back in '74--I remember it well, No doubt one of the best out there. It was a wild night, rockin' and a rollin', rollin' and a rockin. You know, before they changed the water. SM
I had this show in my stereo for about 3 years straight until my car tapedeck ate it up. About 6 years later, hearing it again is really a treat. Now i know which show to look for to re-aquire a copy :) Many Thanks, El Gringo Boston
LOVE china doll!! I only heard it live once. Thanks for this great site!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love this version of casey jones...it seems like it has more of a funky twang to it.
strange that they would've changed they love each other because the 73 version grooved better than those of 76 and on.
this is the best site EVER!!!
I love the Dead - First show was Hampton Bays when they broke out Dark Star in the 80's - 6.9.77 at the Winterland one of my favorite shows! Thanks Man
really great help today at work listening to this. happy birthday jerry 8/1/2005 i love this band so much first show '78 uptown ,chicago
just want to let you know how much excitement the site adds to my otherwise boring and mundane job
"wave that flag" is actually primitive building blocks to u.s. blues; some perfection in age delt us u.s.blues soon therafter...
Awesome TLEO!! I wish they always cooked it like this!
TLEO! Awesome, Damn Jerry sounds healthy on this stream! Thank you for this site!!!!
I love the segue from "Truckin'" into "Eyes" here. As far as the best "Eyes," I'd have to cast my vote for the version on the "So Many Roads" box set- 5/19/74 I think ?
You're right, the "Wave That Flag" is "U.S. Blues", but that was the songs name before they reworked it.
Every Palo Alto show I have ever heard has been incredible and this one is surely no exception!
Lord you can see that its true... that this show friggin rocks!
Crazy Cat Peekin, been there done that!
"wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world...!!"
Don't know when your site came on but it makes staying late at work a whole lot better. cheers
they're a rainbow full of sound;fireworks,caliopies,and clowns.that says it all!
Hi, talking about favorite Eyes I cast my vote for 8-6-74 as the purest jam version. on a hot humid nite in new jersey it was pure magic. gives me goose bumps just thinking about it :)
I like this vesion of TLEO better than the slowed-down version they played later on. More funk and spunk.
Isn't that "Wave That Flag" actually "U.S. Blues"?
they love each other is a real gold nugget. it's brilliant.
The version of Eyes of the World on Without a Net with Branford Marsalis on his saxophone I think is the best recorded one. Bill Cunningham Vestavia, Alabama
