Set One: PigPen in fine form!! You know he's a King Bee..

nuthin for the head like some pre '70's dead

Good show...very nice XI. One of my fav's. Jerry is tearing things up in the transition to the XI. Just when I think he can't be better, he just smokes through this song and leaves the audience in awe. He is the man.

Dick Latvala guesses that this and the preceeding monster were mined for Live/Dead

-john doe

jerry musta been dosed to the gills...checkout his commentary of the on-stage scene being "...beyond the pale" right before he counts (or should i say stomps?) out "cryptical" to start set II....oh, and what a sick version of "that's it 4 the o1" it is....especially after the "crypt rep" when jerry screams the last "ya know he had to DIIIEEEE!!!!">>>>the music sounds like a ball being tossed up in the air then phil does a run down his bass which sounds like the ball coming down, and the band the bat that slams the tune over the past the wall, and over the bleachers, way, way outta the stadium....

Cryptical->Death blows my mind everytime I hear it... my fovorite hour ever.

"The best and most exciting G.D. show
ever is without a doubt 2/28/69- Fillmore West!!!"
- Dick Latvala


one of the best, probley my most played one. Love the St.Stephen
-Stevie G (02/17/2008)

Funny banter after Doin' That Rag. In a cranky old man's voice, either Bobby or Jerry "I came here to hear psychedelic music...what is this crap"
-Perrinswolf (02/23/2008)

This is one of my all time faves! Sums up 60's era Dead perfectly. Just the right amount of Pigpen, plus ALL of the psychdelic jams. My all time favorite Cryptical>Other One>Cryptical. The Dark Star is a heap of fun too. The Alligator>Caution is PRIMAL Dead at its best. Love the stand alone Lovelight to end the first set. Easily the best night of this classic run. 3/1/69 pales in comparison. Goodnight from all of the electronic mice!

Also, to add to the above review, I love the polite clapping as they start Dark Star after the intense Crytical.
-Anonymous (08/13/2009)

via ancient analog maxell cassette (from reels)on tcd 420 tandberg... it's arguably the most blistering show of that decade, sine qua non. the story goes like this: there were 50 gallon containers of kool-aid at the door, so as you gave the man yr ticket. you automatically got a full paper cup which allowed you hopefully to keep up with the band...

Is this the "Fillmore West 1969" official release? If so, Disc 3 is one of the hottest things I've ever heard. I was levitating off the bed.

-Bookkeeper (05/19/2019)

No Jackie, Disc 3 of the official release is 3-2-69.
-Bookkeeper (05/19/2020)

A '69 show feels like the right place to complain about SiriusXM GD Channel. They play ENTIRELY TOO MUCH Dead and Company and other post-Jerry garbage. It's all competent playing but it's the Dead missing the HEART and SOUL. Jerry was all that and more.
-Anonymous (01/11/2023)

Discs 2 and 3 on the box set: Two hours of Donít Fuck with the Grateful Dead.

"jerry musta been dosed to the gills...checkout his commentary of the on-stage scene being "...beyond the pale" right before he counts (or should i say stomps?) out "cryptical" to start set II"

Jerry's "beyond the pale" comment was from the previous night's intro into Cryptical...
