The Dark Star Orchestra performed this set in Indianapolis at the Vogue Theatre on 3/1/01. It freaking rocked! I would give it a 4.5 out of 5.0.

before the morning dew fades away the playin' EXPLODES back on the's really sweet!!

Deal follows the Playing not FOTD.


PITB-->Drumz-->DS-->MD-->PITB..what the hell??it IS everything you would think it should be..:^)) get this real good show. all songs played very well but we are talking about 1972...another reason i love the dead..

Dark Star
Morning Dew
Playin' In The Band
Only time this fantastic pairing was played!. The Dark Star has multiple solos with separate themes of blue grass variations, while the Dew is long but fast past throughout and crumbles back in the Playin refrain jam. A night for the ages.

I stood at the stage directly under Bobby at this show, particularly tripped out by the mesmerizing Bird Song (played all three nights of this run.) As Dark Star got underway, they hit a mirror ball with a spot and the whole place seemed to shift into another dimension. Always a special vibe at the Fox, a true brokedown palace, ancient Egyptian-styled 1920s theatre.

there's about a 3 minute "feelin' groovy jam" at the end of dark star

The Saint Louie folks sure got a treat this night, the show is fire. The bandís creative juices are flowing freely for sure. Totally transcendent Bird Song, took me away to a very happy place. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, peace.

I finally got a chance to do a full-commitment listen of this show from my new Listen to the River box set. Wow. A true gem of a show. The first set is solid '72 Dead with Bird Song bein my personal favorite of set one. However, it is the second set that takes this show into the stratosphere. Specifically, the PitB sandwich kicking of the set is all-time top-shelf Dead material. Tremendous extended jamming. If you haven't acquired this box set yet, all I can say is don't miss out as this hour+ of music is as fine of Dead music that you'll ever hear.
One other comment about this show is that I found Bobby's feed on this recording very prevalent in the mix. I can't recall any official release in which I can hear Bobby's guitar in the forefront as much as I do on with this show. It dominates the right channel (I listened on high-end headphones). I found it to be quite interesting and thoroughly enjoyable. I think sometimes Weir's guitar contribution is underappreciated as it is often lost in the mix. This recording highlights Bobby's unique style and invaluable contribution that he brings to the table.
