Keith Godchaux's first show
Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw, Mexicali Blues, Comes A Time, One More Saturday Night and Ramble On Rose are performed for the 1st time.

Oooooooops. second time performed with the exception of Mexicali blues

all mentioned above - 1st time played

One of the longest shows ever.
Unreal Cryptical/Other one

far, far from one of the longest shows ever nick

Firsts (if Iím not mistaken): Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw, Mexicali Blues, Comes A Time, One More Saturday Night, Ramble On Rose,

Funky T Jed; Jack Straw was mighty fine for a first time played, Bobby and Jerry did not swap verses; Sweet BE Women; rather upbeat Comes A Time (for a Comes a time, that is); Ramble on Rose has a little funk flair to it, I like it; beautiful Cryptical>drums>Other One,>Cryptical (Iím assuming this sequence did not last much longer) love the jamming; rockiní GDTRFB.

Overall I love this really raw show. Theyíre a young band with some personnel changes (No Pigpen this show, Keithís first show, first show with out Mickey), but IMHO this is the start of them really coming into their own, peaking in 1974. Iím a fan of the one drummer era and itís great to hear them at the very beginning of that endeavor. I give this show 4 stars for performance and 4 for sound quality. Any Dead Head will happy to sit back and give this one a listen.

First Beat it on Down the Line
-Mrs. Malaprop (10/10/2011)

The period between Aoxomoxoa and Wake of the Flood - roughly '69 to'73 - is a favorite of many a ripened fan. The band is at their trippiest-tightest, every tour featured great new tunes and Jerome and Phil still had their voices!
-DobbsBaby (11/07/2011)

@Mrs. Malaprop, this is NOT the first BIODTL. That was in '66...

@Andrew - Thanks, you're right, Mickey's last show until '74 was 02/18/71. My bad.

I never saw this show but a friend of mine gave me a tape with this exact setlist back in the early 90's. it was what turned me on to a long and lasting relationship with the GD's music. The tape has long since broken and I searched everywhere thinking it was a Dick's Picks or something but never finding it until today. What a nice surprise. the songs on this set are some of my favorites. the friend's name was Rusty ney and he lived in Tampa back then. If anyone knows him, tell him John Says hey!

Good show, they feel their way through the newer stuff (interesting) and hammer the late 60s standards.
-80s head (04/30/2013)

David Gans played the 'Comes a Time','One More Saturday Night', & 'Casey Jones' from this show on a GD Hour.
OMSN & Casey Jones are incredible... lyrical fuckups but they keep going &blow the roof off the place. I wore out my copy of that tape.
Sam Cutler introduces the band before 1st & 2nd set.

First Easy Answers and first show without Donna.

LOL- SO MUCH misinformation on this page!
-Anonymous (09/22/2015)

It's kinda interesting to listen to the first Jack Straw, since Bob was singing all of the verses. Of course they changed this, because with 2 different characters. the audience needed to be able to differentiate the two.
-Spencer (06/22/2016) (06/22/2016)

First "Easy to Love You" w/out Brent. Pigpen rocks this tune! Also, the last time they ever played "St. Stephen" with Mickey and without Bobby.
-Anonymous (10/18/2016)

Can you send me whatever you're smokin brotha? sounds like it will really put me out there.
-Anonymous (10/19/2016)

I was in the second row for this show. No one has mentioned the opening act!
It was the New Riders featuring Jerry on pedal steel. I really need to get a tape of this.

This and 6 other radio broadcast shows have been released as
'71 Dead box set from Europe. Get it on Ebay, pretty cheap about $60. 21 discs and a nice book, good original poster art.

Wasn't this the show Prince attended as a kid? Or is it the one where they soundchecked "Imagine" which Lennon had just released. All I know for sure is that Snoop Dogg was born the next day which makes sense coz most of these posts seem written by very high people.

Hmmm, pretty tough going without the Pig. They sound totally lost in the first set. The second set is a bit better. Keith is simply terrible on the organ. Really just not the same band.
-Anonymous (07/06/2019)

"Listen to the whistle of the passing train" on Jed. I think I'm glad evening won.

Man, pigpen SLAYS easy to love you, best one without brent!
