this is the second best hth, 1st is over in hollywood in the summer of 71

If there was a soundboard of the Hollywood show, I might agree (not very big with the AUDs). I think this is the best version. And am I nuts? why do so many favour the 4/29 version? Never could get that.
-Wahoo-Wahoo


i am one who favors the 4-29 version! sorry for you dissenters, but the 4-29 version is the best, without question, THE VERY BEST hard to handle of all time. which is a perfect reason why so many people prefer it over 8-06 and 4-28. 4-28 is good, in fact damned great at times, but it gets sloppy at times. 4-29 is flawless. enough said

King Bee-last time played.
-Perrin


actually, "king bee" was played twice in the 90's, with the 1st one being 12/8/93. bob gave it all he had on vocals and the guitar licks were fantastic. i was at that show and was floored at the setlist. it was a truly amazing night. im listening to it right now ironically. wonderful show with a ton of surprises.

4-29 is favored because is it absolutely flawless....it simply does not get any better.

24-Bit/FLAC available for every night of the run, except for the 25th. Fantastic sound quality, and The Boys are playin' great!

-Mike Nomad (06/02/2010)


This run at the fillmore east is among the absolute best in the period '70-'74 anywhere east of the mississippi. In particular, the short time between mickey's departure & keith's arrival spent as a quintet is for many old-timers the band's tightest and purest form. The period '72-'75 added the layered depth of the keyboards so evident on WOTF, MH & BFA, while mickey's return made for a jazzier sound through the balance of the 70s.

So if constanten joined for the last few songs, does anyone know what pigpen was doing while tom was on organ? Congas or something?

I went to this show. I was in 7th grade and it was a Wednesday school night, but my best friend and I somehow convinced our parents to let us go by ourselves. I was in the orchestra seats down front. I freaked out when they started with Truckin', because it was a big FM hit at the time. I remember being so excited that the the other, more mature hippies around me were looking at me funny. It was the first time I'd heard HTH, and I remember it being amazing. They were still playing at 3 AM, when had to finally split
