This show is just phenomonal. The Loose Lucy is a very cool rendition and the band is just top notch the whole way through. Give this a listen if your in the mood for some good old 73 dead.

-grateful farmer


A Top 5 show from a great year of shows. Get the Bertha re-mix at archive.org. The jams coming out of Playin' and HCS are things of beauty.

just so you know, this show doesn't feature WRS Part 1, its WRS Prelude>Eyes of the World.. nice little transition too.

After Row Jimmy, Bobby goes "there are is a patch of tarantuals and spiders in front of the stage....no snakes"

The post lyrics Eyes jamming is incredible! Transition out of outerspace into China Doll is mighty fine as well Mr. Toast. Jerry's voice is crystal clear with wonderful dramatic pauses and the boys harmonies, particularly Phils are as good as your going to get. They can't leave the sweaty garden on a slow note. Sugar Mag start off w/Keith banging on the keys as Jerry catches up very fast and keeps the pace as such. By the time you get to Sunshine Daydream, ten second delay their in full swing until the end. Donna melds perfectly with Bobby while Billy maintains the maddening pace, Jerry doing the "dan-nah nan nat" licks towards the end for a good long time all the while Bobby vocally giving it his all to the last chord. Another Beantown classic I say.

Cool '73 jams in Half-Step, Greatest Story, Playing, Eyes and Here Comes Sunshine.

From Here Comes Sunshine thru China Doll might be the best 45 minutes of dead music. Simply mind blowing.

I was there. It was my second Grateful Dead concert; Watkins Glen was the first. This show was better and I think the entire show, including the NRPS lasted about 5 hours. I remember that I was a little concerned about getting up for class the next day (actually the same day) at URI. Good memories.

This show predates Watkins Glen so check your memory chip Captain Gigantic. This show is getting official release treatment:

Dave's Picks 21 (February 2017)
-Stickler for Logic (11/25/2016)


one of only 4 1973 "Bid You Goodnight" performances, all of which are terrific. This show is just exactly perfect all around, super long and great playing throughout.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (11/30/2016)


I was at this show as a freshman in college in New Hampshire. Got tix day of the show no problem. I remember between sets the floor area was really clear and you could walk around and visit friends. One set those days had as many songs as 1 set in later years. I had already seen the Dead since '71, but a lot of people I know were converted after this show.

First of many shows attended thru the '95 sows at the Knick. An awesome night where if you had taken the train to North Station and stayed for the whole show you had to find an alternative to getting home. NRPS opened and an announcement was made prior to the encore that anyone wanting to catch the last train would need to leave. What a start to a long and glorious road trip!

Set 1

Promised Land - Part 1 of a 3 Berry.

Deal - Textbook/good

Mexicali Blues - Tight

Brown Eyed Women - Dusty bottle version. Good.

Beat It On Down The Line - Bobby delivering.

Row Jimmy - Bill's beat here is again excellent/standard sweetness.

Wave That Flag - Shuffling vibe in full swing.

Big River - I give it 9.5 Handlebar Moustaches.

China > Rider - Rocking Cat with the smoothest transition into the Feeling Groovy section so far/ Rider-ON A NORTHBOUND TRAIN !

Don't Ease Me In - Slow start/Strong finish.

Playing In The Band - So tight it doesn't even sound improvised. Effortless. Nice build.

Set 2

Me and My Uncle - Good stuff, Bobby.

Greatest Story Ever Told - Warbles then picks up steam. (This exact thing is common with it's past few performances) Phil doing cool Phil stuff.

Loose Lucy - Awesome and rowdy take. I approve.

El Paso - Standard goodness/i think our good lieutenant subconsciously summoned Jerry's playing in all versions of this tune while writing Mockingbird. Different keys. Similar tone/feel.

Stella Blue - Scarred but still beautiful.

Around and Around - Part 2 of a 3 Berry.

Here Comes Sunshine - The first extended version finds itself getting mellow and playing the role of the chilled/melting vibe so often heard on the backend of a Truckin' jam.

Jam - The melting continues .

Space - Ambient/serene. Ya like clean/space like mellow jamming? Checkout Sunshine>Jam>Space.

Weather Report Suite Prelude - see review for this show's Stella.

Eyes of the World - Slippery. It has a tendency to warble every now & then. Tremendously subtle work from a very underrated Keith G. 2nd jam at 11:39. 13:00 through 15:06 = Totally Fire.

China Doll - Perfect it's not but it's only fractured.

Sugar Magnolia - Melodic picking from Jerry preceding the Sunshine Daydream section.

Casey Jones - Good slide job. Nice buildup.

Johnny B. Goode - Part 3 of a 3 Berry.

We Bid You Goodnight - Love

Of the 35 songs played the 28 above I would download and spin again.

28 of 35 is a grade of 80.00%

Cheers !
