all 3 nights at the ark in april69 were epic listen to them all and be grateful that your ears get to indulge in these mind blowing recordings

This is a cosmic show for the most part. Dark Star second song, first set..what else can you expect?

Morning Dew-flawlessly performed.

E: Baby Blue, long and drawn out-i prefer this as to later versions.

A monster show, plain and simple. Morning Dew to the end of the show is totally off the wall.

Always thought the Hard To Handles at the Fillmore East in 71 were king until I heard this version. Jerry's slide guitar reminds me of Duane Allman's licks in the Layla Session jams with Eric Clapton, recorded about a year after this concert. Jerry could truly do it all . . .

Listen to this show right now!

"It's a Sin" is couched within the St. Stephen.

Appropriately introduced at the start of the show. Nice opening, He was a friend of mine, then pretty much a rocket ship blast to inner space.. Love it!

-Baby Blue (03/05/2014)

Terrific, show with a loose feel and great playing. As another poster noted, they do I Know Its a Sin within St. Stephen. Someone requests Morning Dew during the first set and the band jokes that they won't play it till morning. Set II features BOTH the Bid You Goodnight jam and an actual vocal performance of Bid You Goodnight. They start NFA in the encore before abandoning it, tuning, and doing Baby Blue.
