I've only been able to get my hands on a B- quality copy of this one, would be great to find something better...anyone???

I was there, and I won't forget it.

The recordings I've heard are barely listenible. AUD and busted up to hell. Sounds like someone was sitting on the microphone.

It was a great night - and it was a Hell's Angels benefit show. Seems like the local NYC chapter had gotten busted with enough guns in somebody's apartment to outfit a small army. Oh well.

Does anyone know if Jerry Band & Friends played on the 25th? and if so, did the Dead join in with the Friends? Looking at the handbills in DP30, it shows the Dead at the Academy on 3-21,22,23,26,27,28 with Jerry Band playing on the 25th. Just curious.

Smokestack is disgusting!
-Anonymous (08/27/2009)


I was at every show on this run. 3/25 was originally a night off in the middle of a 6-show run. The Hell's Angels benefit was added at the start of the run and billed as Jerry Garcia & Friends (not the JGBY) with Bo Diddley. The friends were the rest of the Dead, backing Bo for Set 1, and then adding Donna (her first show as an official band member) at the beginning of Set 2.

Heard part of this show on an internet radio station recently. Sounded awesome. Sorry I couldn't record it.

Have a Grateful Day

The stuff from DP30, with Bo, et al., is a *lot* of fun. Certainly a change of pace from what we usually hear. You really have to bend your ear to get used to the Dead covering those Garcia/Saunders tunes. Smokestack is, yeah, pretty wicked-cool.

Smokestack: great ad-libs from Pigpen ("put your pistol away") and the jam sounds like it's going to careen right into Truckin'
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (09/06/2016)


This was my first show. Hell's Angels everywhere. I remember being blown away by Pigpen...had no idea how sick he was. This was the tune-up for what we now know as Europe '72. For those of you still looking...this show and 3-28-72 is intact on Dick's Picks #30.
