THE best Dark Star Ever. IMO
-


It certainly is one of the best, though there's a somber mood about it, like most DS of that period. I personally love the one on "nightfall of Diamonds", it's so relaxing...
-


I listened again. It actually is quite a dark DS which wqhat it's supposed to be ha?
-


I agree the nightfall verse is very relaxing. That DS was very dark. that's what i liked sooo much. In my opinion it's supposed to be, like someone said. That entire period was dark, the end of the intense psychedelia period. The extremely addictive persia may have just started comin around somewhere in this period. they originally got hooked with persia somewhere overseas.

Check out the Dark Star from 2-27-69. It makes this one seem tame.

the very early version of LLR is amazing with jerry playing pedal steel and bobby's voice just aching with emotion...a real tearjerker!!
-


The DarkStar is one of the best. The jam that leads into Sugar Mag is great.
But lets not forget about the 20 minute Caution that follows. The band is on fire!
-


Dark Star>Sugar Mag>Caution is absolutely wonderful here. One of the longest opening jams before jerry begins the verse (about 11 minutes). After this it's one of my favorite Dark Stars (check out 11/8/69) and seemless transitions into a nice Sugar Mags and a great Caution. Pretty damn good show!
-


HIGH energy
-Anonymous


This entire show smokes!! A jammin Bertha to start the show right on thru to Dark Star - Sugar Mag - Caution!!
Folks, it doesn't get much better than this. The WHOLE show is classic, Vintage Grateful Dead in one of their finest periods!
-Chad


The LLR is almost as soft and sad in the first set as the Dark Star. I read that Jerry did not get into the persian until the 74 Euro tour, from Rock Skully's "Living with the Dead" will have to do a re-read to verify.
I like that the 2nd set is not as long setlist wise, rather longer jams and the zenith of Pigpen's presence.

cumberland blues- sweet sweet harmony
ten jed- jerry's singing is passionate
good lovin'- is just that
it hurts me too- in a really good way:)
dark star- pure mind blowing excellence, Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis, the jam at the end into sugar is sublime, def. not somber!
caution- do not stop on the tracks cause a fast train is a comin'

can't find a ride like that no more!

this is the reason Europe '72 is a legend. Cumberland so pure, vocals full bore, full pronouncation...have the album on display in my man cave. quite tattered. think my brother bought it, but I have it now. like an heirloom
