If you're a fan of TOO, get this show! If just for that tune. Over half an hour of mind-blowing, hyperdelic playing that conjures up memories of the '72 Veneta Star. Get this one. At all costs.

I'll second that. The Other One gets jazzy at times, dies down, bubbles back up, goes into overdrive, then totally melts down into chaos before re-emerging (not necessarily in this order, mind you). And it's 30 seconds shy of a 40 minute mind-blowing performance. Quite a feat for this tune even for this era. Personally, I don't know of another TOO that is even slightly comparable. Ass-kicking stuff here, folks!

He's Gone>The Other One>Sing Me Back Home. Beautiful

Chinacat>Rider-Most impressive solo's and great harmonies all 'round.

Sing Me Back Home-29th of 37 times played.


Don't forget the bird song! The other one aside, (and it is good stuff, don't get me wrong,) this is TYPICAL 72' brilliance. We're not quite in the spacey 74-76 era... YET! But you can see it come to be in songs like Bird Song and my personal fav, the Loser. Awesome stuff- and the sound quality (for the board I have at least) is GREAT. Be GRATEFUL=- grab a 72' show today!!

DP 23, excluding the encore.

The Playin' in this show isn't given nearly the credit it is due, clocking in at around 18 minutes of pure, exploratory jamming.

I noticed during half step that jerry sings the part about waiting for better weather before the powder charge part. I believe jerry flubbed the parts and it goes the other way around unless im mixing them up.

When they're first starting out Black-Throated Wind, Jerry begins playing his intro lead for Jack Straw instead. In his defense, both songs do start with very similarly strummed E chords.

This was my first Dead Show. Uncle John's band set the hook - the vocals were so tight that I had an out of body experience. I had heard a lot of records and a few tapes, but nothing with Donna Jean's vocals added. I realized at this show that this was what I had been looking for all of my 19 years. It's the only time I've ever heard anyone sound good in the Civic center - sound was spot on and the band played their hearts out.

Never understand why people were clapping in time with the band ruining audience copies to hundreds of shows. Clap clap clap what are we in a little kids show.
-Kdead (10/17/2019)

My first show (forever grateful, Luther B); think I bothered to listen to them any more? (Never stopped in almost 48 years now.)

Friends it's hard to put into words how epic this concert is! 9 months into what I think is their most creative year and this show comes off like it inspired by the energy of the universe or something, I mean only this band can do something like this where they lay down KILLER on point versions of 'cowboy' tunes like El Paso and Big River to PITB and The Other One where it's just EVERYTHING, jazz at times, soundtrack to space, and all other times as Jerry called it...Grateful Dead Music
