Officially the last show by the Grateful Dead at the Uncle Bobo's Fillmore West.

This has got to de the best Hard to Handle ever!

I had this bootleg vinyl lp that had a translucent swirl in it. It only had 3 songs on one side 1. sunshine daydream (w/out sugar mag) 2. sing me back home and mama tried. Side had Crypt and the other one. If you can stream this at listen to the audience responce at the end of the other one. Garcia and the Drums really hit it and the crowd must have been literally shell shocked. Sing me back home is worth listening to as Garcia is both gentle and strong in the lyrics and lots of power in the guitar solo. Back up vocal on this song are special also. NOTE: do your best to source and download the 2nd won't be disappointed!!!

The boys were spot on for the last night at Grahams venue. The Cryptical is a Dark Star suite itself and dominates the 2nd set. The gentle glide to a soft landing of the TO1 gives you the full emotional spectrum, from a listener perspective. Garcia really gives the Casey Jones solos some true passion and the GDTRFB is quite mellow but soulful in it's playing.

The band didn't think they played so hot for this date. As in LST: "On July 2, the Dead played their last show at the Fillmore West, and although they played so poorly they asked not to be in Graham’s film Last Days of the Fillmore (their resistance drove Graham crazy, until eventually they relented and allowed him to have one song), they did realize one ambition, which was to get Bill Graham high on LSD. It was fun for him, too. When he realized the source of his giddiness, he looked at the band and cracked up. Someone handed him a stick, Bill hit the gong, and in “one of the dozen great nights of my life,” he conducted the Dead “and probably lovingly made an ass of myself.”"

A true account. It's an alright show, but certainly not even close to the best for this year.

LaRue, check out 08-06-1971 Hollywood Palladium for another gnarly Hard to Handle, arguably their best. Bertha opener rages too.

This is the first (and best)F.M.broadcast tape i ever owned.I think it was played live on KSFX.The sound quality is great and the host comments between songs.Like when the crowd gets rowdy after Casey calling out songs,he says something like,"don't you thing the band knows what numbers they're gonna play already".Me thinks the Mama Tried and Big Boss Man rocks out with what sounds like that ol' Strat country twang!
