Hands down the best show of '72
-Anonymous


BE Woman is might strong on this here show folks!
-Perrinswolf (06/04/2007)


I almost 100% agree with Anonymous. There might be a Europe show that is superior but I'm not sure. For sure this show, in my opinion, is superior to the forthcoming Veneta show.
-Steve (07/11/2008)


The Dark Star is frigging unbelievable.
-Adrian (02/13/2009)


Great call for best show of the year. It's definitely up there in the discussion. Better than the Veneta show, which is somewhat overrated in my opinion, but I don't think it's as all-encompassing and singular as the show one month later at the Spectrum, 09-21. One man's opinion, of course.
-Ed (07/20/2010)


At around 20:30 into Dark Star it sounds like Jerry tries two times to steer the song towards Morning Dew, but nobody else in the band goes along so he give up on it. Great jam!
-Lightnin' (12/03/2012)


What's really striking here is how leisurely they're playing...must have been a very chill atmosphere. Keith sounds really great here, peak form. Killer show, a must have.

FOTD after BE woman. Phil also gives a long polite explanation about Pigpen's health y how he needs 6 months of nothing but vegetables. cirrhosis with vitamin defecientes before FOTD

I have an original copy of Dead Europe '72. I also have 500 tapes of every era. Funny, when I listen to my Europe '72 I find it sounds as good, although perhaps not better, than so many others. Same with this show; just love the sound. Like stepping back and saying "this is how it all began." Such a pure sound...bliss
