Comments:

Deadbase doesn't have Here comes Sunshine listed at all. However, it lists the whole Weather Report Suite following Sing your Blues Away. Martin Fiero & Joe Ellis are on harmonica on LMSYBA, WRS and EYES. But their sound totally ruined these songs. They suck and in a way ruined this show for me.

El Paso-Keith is slamming the keys while Jerry's pretty plucking

II
Let Me Sing Your Blues Away-3rd/6
All in 9/73

-Perrinswolf


Highlights of this show are the WRS and a totally frenetic Let It Grow and a blistering Eyes. Tons of energy.

Hey Anonymous of the first comment, Don't bother to comment on a show if you can not differentiate between a harmonica and a saxophone or a trumpet for that matter. You got the players right, but not the instrumentation. It takes credibility out of your opinion. One of the best things about the Dead is that they always pushed the envelope introducing new sounds to their shows. What you despise others, myself included, really like.

Should really have the horns players marked off on the songs of each setlist, that should be a no brainer for the setlists, guest musicians playing on which songs etc, there is ample documentation of this...I'm not going to give much credibility to a site that doesn't label this.

Martin Fierro and Joe Ellis on horns for "Let Me Sing Your Blues Away", Let It Grow" and Eyes of The World. maybe if you listened to the show instead of complaining about the site you woulda known that, especially since someone already said these things in a previous post...

And the other Anon bro who said these two screwed up the sound of the songs clearly hasn't listened to Wake of The Flood, cause that is the sound of those tunes when they were first written.

Mexicali-Beautifully peppy and some early heavy Phil

BE Women-mellow version but Jerry lays his soul out here. Vocals/mix are great on this number.

ElPaso-The vocals are turned down halfway through the song till the end while the sbd rotates through Phil Keith & Jerry. You can feel every note. Cool stuff

Don't Ease-Same sbd iso on instruments for 90 seconds. When the mix is finished the sound is just exactly perfect and at the high point of the song. Keith's is on fire in the final jam

Bobby chimes "we're going to take a minute to plug things up a little bit because ....people are really plugged up" then Phil quips "Don't get excited folk"

LL Rain-"this number is a lady's choice" midsong

Funiculý, FuniculÓ-We're going to take a break now to fix the base players base

HC Sunshine- not on tape
Me And My Uncle-not on tape

Bird Song-nice Phil harmonies excellent Bobby bluesy chords as Jerry floats in & out of the galaxy and lands as light as a feather.

Jack Straw-Phil co-lead singer. Bobby but mainly Keith first then Jerry on the instrument mix for the entire song. Short version


Big River-Bitchin heavy duty version. Phil starts to flex his muscles and makes it so much better song. Jerry's solo's are electrifying.

Loose Lucy-in first set after Birdsong. Jerry really belts it with Donna making her first appearance. Keith is so strong sounds as if they are playing in a saloon or Roadhouse.

Row Jimmy-first set too.
