good show

Muddy Water-only time played, the "Fabulous" Felt Forum is now "The Theatre" but i can still smell the red felt on the walls.

This show was on the radio (WNEW-FM), and it was a great show. I was at the show the night before (Saturday). I was pretty young and don't remember a thing about it, except that it blew this youngster away. I've never seen a tape of it either. If anyone has a CD of any of these Felt Forum shows, I would love it if you shared them with me. Thanks!

I have a vinyl bootleg of this show. Its good to hear ol' Pigpen

Pretty sure this was my first show. The thing I remember most was how impressed I was with Bobby. I knew Jerry and Pigpen, but I was blown away by how much Bobby was the show.

"I've never seen a tape of it either."

Dude! What a bummer! This was one of the first tapes that drew me in. Then I had a bit of it on vinyl bootleg. Just a fantastic show, tight and punchy. Top shelf.Here ya go:

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.

“Muddy Water” is actually I Washed My Hands in Muddy Water which was an Elvis song. This is an awesome cover of said tune. Only Garcia in his prime.......

All in all a classic. Don’t have this show? Get it!

Like Ben said in 2007, I also have a vinyl bootleg of this show.

I’m going to comment on a few posts with this 1 comment. It was indeed a radio broadcast, hence Scott Muni & the ‘71 Dead boxed set. Being in New York made it easy for people working for record companies to ‘drop the needle’ and record it to vinyl. There were lots of copies on vinyl found in all the bootleg record stores of the ‘70’s. This and the broadcast itself lent to a zillion copies out there. I’m wondering if WNEW paid for the rights of this show in order to broadcast. That would prevent it from being released. I think the old King Biscuit Flour Hour shows fall under that same umbrella. Those broadcasted shows were never released either.

Commented in 2014, but this is the 50 anniv. of seeing the Dead. Got on the bus and am still riding and having fun!
