I heard this show on my local dead hour before it went off the air and i loved it. Probably my favorite part about it was the Weather Report because of the guest saxophone player. It is still my favorite version of WRS and if anyone who reads this knows of any other early WRS versions with a saxophone, i would be happy if you'd e-mail me the date.

Oh My, I just got this show and it smokes. The highlights are definately Let Me Sing Your Blues Away and WRS with the saxophone player. Highly recommended. Peace

i don't like the shows from the fall of '73 with the goofy horn section honking away on certain songs. i realize that some folks like those shows but the horns just didn't cut it for me...in fact i thought they kind of sucked but hey that's why they make chocolate and vanilla!

That's Martin Fierro (from Legion of Mary and Zero and session player on WAKE OF THE FLOOD and HOOTEROLL?) on saxophones/flute during Fall of '73. I can't remember the name of the trumpet player...

Trumpet player was Joe Ellis

What a show! This deserves to be released on CD.
Best WRS ever. The horns add a whole new jazz element.

Martin Ferrero and Joe Ellis. Talk about sychronicity, it's on the grateful dead channel right now -- 03/20/12 @12:00 pm (EST)

They only had the horn section for about 8 shows so I think its pretty unique and special. So don't hate on the horn section it was just a thing they tried out
-Anonymous (08/24/2012)


Was listening to this on XM today. According to Lemieux, the horn players were with the opening act, Doug Sahm, and sat in on the two nights. For those who care, another "get together' between the same groups http://www.adioslounge.com/happy-thanksgiving-from-doug-sahm-and-friends/

and yes, I did mistakenly post this at the Providence show, but it's the same 2 guys.
