The after show you have is from the year before

Dancin'-Last till 6.76

Midway through Dancin' you hear the MC say "Black 1972, White their diapers..."

BE Woman has interesting and different licks at the start as well as Big River in the 2nd set.

Enjoyed some rare ones "YOu Win Again" and Chinatown Shuffle. Pigpen did quite well on Same Thing.

A very good version of One More Saturday Night to polish off the first set. Crisp and clean with Garcia going to town on the fretboard. Boys had the wheels greased might fine going into the 2nd set.
-Iceguru (07/03/2008)

First Big River live. I think it might be one of my favorite versions! Fall/Winter '71 has some interesting transitional sounds. Keith really plays Honky/Tonk piano at firts and by spring '72 he developed the jazz element of his playing that peaked in '74. This show sounds OH SO GOOD on the IA.

Got the Archive SBD before they cut downloading. Free to you in two parts...

Just what you needed...Enjoy.

Vibrant, vital & velocity -- that's the Dead in the pre-Europe '72 days. No wall of sound, no donna, Pig still with us and more experimentation than expectation. These were the days the expression "nothing like a Dead concert" meant more than the words. Small venues, Gibsons & Fenders, the Boys still in their 20s (well, almost - sorry Phil), energy and electricity. Listen again, learn all over.

My favorite show.

This was essentially my first Dead show. I was living in the East Bay and hanging out with some friends at the park. One of the friends owed me some money so they gave me a little slip of paper to settle the debt with the words "NYE '71 admit 2 (and signed) Bill". I was dubious but it turned out that Bill Graham would hand out notes like this for favors people done for him. So I trusted my friend and invited my other friend Danny to go with me since it was the next day. We contacted another buddy named Big John for a ride to SF on NYE.
So early NYE we're getting party favors (uppers) for John at the local Doggie Diner to pay for ride to Winterland. He kept the whole ones we got the powder residue. We get in his topless 1962 Corvette and head over Bay Bridge then out Geary to find Post and Steiner. We were going over 100 MPH and sailed past Winterland so fast it took many blocks to slow down and return to venue. They took the slip of paper and we got in ok. Inside it took forever for Sons and NRPS to play. At midnight a black guy and a white guy in diapers with 1972 banners on them danced onstage as the Dead started. I was on the side of hall close to Garcia (when he was on left side to audience view). In aisle seat at floor level a girl came flying by and handed me ten tabs of sunshine. Said "Take one and pass the rest down the row." The first set was a cowboy psychedelic blur. The only song I knew was the BIODTL. The boys were so good. I didn't know live music could be so fulfilling. It was the first of about a hundred GD shows. I eventually got on that bus.

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.

Absolutely fabulous show. Canít beleive there are not more comments.

All of the 71 Black Peters are amazing but this is probably the best one and really the last great one.

This is also the first play for Chinatown Shuffle (it smokes) and the only play of The Same Thing (fantastic).

Donít have it? Get it!

... HAPPY New Year 2021 & Lets' Fade Away the year we called "2020"....
-Anonymous (12/31/2020)

I remember this was the first show where I had both sets. All thru the long hot summer of 87 I listened to this show over and over and over again. I was so disappointed when I saw the dead that fall and they did not sound like this!

There were three and only three truly great touring bands in the 70s and this was the only American one. And the other two put on "shows"; the Dead played concerts.
