To Lay Me Down-not played again till 11/7/73
-Brianmerrilyn (04/05/2007)

great breakdown perrin. an absolutely stellar show, and one of the most listenable recordings of any early material available on archive. wonderful sound and a jaw dropping setlist and performance. tight harmonies (check out UJB and sugar mags among others for some wonferful dead singing) and inspired playing.
"UJB", "FOTD", and "to lay me down" all could be put in the "best ever" category, and the second set is filled with short, tight, focussed jams. certainly not as spaced out as late 60's, but for some of us, the more focussed jams actually sound better.
all in all, a solid 5 star performance and i would have to say one of the best from this period or any period for that matter.

ps- jerry and phil are one voice on "attics", and sound more like CSNY than what we would expect from the dead.
-gdjake (02/29/2008)

One of the best, it's up there in the top 5, or 10, or 20...LOL they have a bunch of shows that are AWESOME!!!! This is one of them.

Good Luvin' from 9/18...I think...
-Anonymous (02/13/2009)

I love the show but the sound is the thing that kills me. The instruments are all very clear, however, there is a wavy kind of fade in and out feel to the recording that bothers me.
-The Man (04/26/2010)

WAY BACK OH YONDER when i was 17, back in 2002... i was grabbing for every bit of dead material I could. I knew the TOUCH OF GREY, and I had the SKELETONS FROM THE CLOSET, I needed more. Then I got DEAD RECKONING. well... my first rogue, taper recording was LADIES AND GENTLEMEN... the closing of fillmore. well, to tell you the truth, my first, real, real, real, real, real, authentic, real GRATEFUL DEAD TAPE, was this one... September, 20th 1970 New York City, the fillmore east. Let me tell you... they were in perfection. And I cannot think of any human who can hear this recording and not get hooked. If a human hears this and does not have a melting feeling in their soul, then they should just be shot... or have their throat slit. This is ORGASMACOMMA. FUCK statistics and HOOOPLAH... whatever.... this show is so beautiful... it most definitely resides in the top 10 of all DEAD shows

Anyone know why this was the last speedway boogie for almost 21 years?
-Murphy (02/15/2013)

i was there...sitting first row mezz. riders opened with great acoustic dead blew the roof off...had school the next day and was vibrating so heavy...left before electric dead. fun night !!!

Dude - you fucked up. I sorta did the same thing. Ate a quaalude first set, Wall of Sound '74, Atlanta. Had to split at break and missed the first Slipknot.

But, listening to the two shows now, you made the bigger mistake.

TIM you're kidding right? This IMHO is a stellar show. FYI the piano in To Lay Me Down is probably Garcia also I think I hear pedal steel who would probably be Buddy Cage since NRPS opened or Garcia? and David Nelson played second mandolin on BRRB w/Grisman. Just heard that on the DEAD channel where they just played this show earlier today. Love and Peace

Just came here to say this Easy Wind is effing unbelievable and if you haven't heard it STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND LISTEN and that is all

Just to add some "color", electric set opening, just before they started Casey Jones, Mickey rook windup Locomotive toy, wound the key, and put it down to run across the stage.
