setlist here is missing the eyes before the dew.

You might be right about that. There is a distinct cut between Truckin' and Dew in my copy.

your's missing EYES, and what a grand one it is....I have this show in full via SBD. if anyone wants it, email me, will set up a ever

Less than a month since Pigpen's passing, Graham introduces the band, funny the way he says Lesh's full first name but not for the rest of the boys.
China>Rider>Jack Straw gets it going early on, great versions.

I hate when producers cut songs out of shows, but then splice the noodlin in between the cut. it makes it really annoying to listen to some shows, and most people don't do it right, cause you ant change the flow of a dead show no mater how good an engineer you are. STOP, just include everything.

Birdsong-Nice long Dark Staresque jam
- (06/06/2013)

Hilarious stage banter between Wave That Flag and LLR.
- (06/30/2014)

No Eyes at the show. The recording is the show as it is. Eyes was played the shows before and after, also at Nassau Coliseum

Anyone know where Donna is for this show? Didn't hear her on LLR.

Ha...nevermind. She comes in on BIODTL.

My first Dead show, we arrived at the Coliseum at 11 in the morning, hung out all day on line, it was general admission!!! The next night was Pink Floyd at Radio City Music Hall, 1AM! The Dark Side of the Moon tour. Slept for a week!!!

Set 1

China > Rider - Standard Cat/Rockin' Rider !

Jack Straw - Very tight. The best of ' far.

Wave That Flag - Exuberant. Another step towards U.S. Blues

They Love Each Other - Standard goodness.

El Paso - So chill. Very nice feel. Smooth vocals from Bob.

Row Jimmy - Standard '73 version.

Mexicali Blues - Grab the tequila! Dance!

Bird Song - Another tasty Bird prepared by the guys for our consumption. Were they planning on opening a KFC ?

Playing In The Band - Gorgeous at times. Trippy at times. Typical awesomeness.

Set 2

Promised Land - Reliable

Bertha - Not perfect but rambunctious.

Greatest Story Ever Told - See review for Bertha ^

Big River - More like fantastic river.

Don't Ease Me In - Fun, Fun tune

Me and My Uncle - Standard/sweetness.

Dark Star - Holy cow!!! The jam is so good. It has more atmosphere than Jupiter. Keith plays beautifully. So rich. Extra texture. Cohesive. The show centerpiece.

Truckin' - Rocks as it was designed to do.

Morning Dew - Slow start/good middle/great ending.

Of the 25 songs played the 19 above I would download and spin again.

19 of 25 is a grade of 76.00%

Cheers !

Promised Land
Greatest Story Ever Told

2/12 times this great trifecta was played
- (08/25/2021)

Bird Song and Playing In The Band are all timers. Keith had an especially great show.
-Luke (10/25/2021)

Funny banter by Phil right after Greatest where he almost loses his mind and says to crowd "to the asshole...( pause l that shooting off fireworks at least shoot them away from people." Then Bobby chimes in "yeah, we can smell it up here."

Truckin'- most excellent blues jam mid song.

Bloggy's got the weirdest way of rating shows. Whether or not a song is a keeper is what determines it? So all keepers are created equal? Makes no sense.
