The Dead kill it on this show. I will be surprised if this is not the show of the day from gratefuldeadoftheday,com.

Here Comes Sunshine, Playin', and everything between He's Gone and Sugar Mags are top notch Dead jamming in this listener's estimation. Nice take on the Spanish Jam.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (05/02/2016)

Set 1

Bertha - Nice playing by Phil out of the gate.

Beat It On Down The Line - Standard boogie.

Don't Ease Me In - Fun yet again.

The Race Is On - I always sing every line !

Cumberland Blues - First of '73. Joyful.

They Love Each Other - Textbook/bouncy.

Mexicali Blues - EXTREMELY fun version. Well played.

Tennessee Jed - Works for me.

Looks Like Rain - Not perfect but pretty darn close. ..which is fine by me.

Wave That Flag - Bill provides a solid pocket.

El Paso - Consistently well played.

Here Comes Sunshine - Another keeper from start to finish.

Loser - Jerry's voice pushes itself to it's boundaries & in doing so unintentionally adds to the desperation found in the lyrics.

Playing In The Band - This one flows like a jazzy river for the first 12 minutes....then Billy and Phil provide subtle funky elements to mesh w/Jerry's wah. Bob and Keith are also doing excellent work. I would love to hear what Coltrane & Miles would do with this.

Set 2 is Fantastic !

Promised Land - Berry good.

China > Rider - A fun rocking Cat with a great move into a equally fun rocking Rider.

Big River - ENERGY. PHIL!

Stella Blue - Poignant.

Me and My Uncle - Workhorse.

He's Gone - A slow burning ember. Very nice feel musically after the vocal refrain.

Truckin' - Every Truckin' so far has been a keeper. No exception here.

Spanish Jam - Orgasmic jamming. Peaks & valleys discovered & explored with perfect ease. They find the theme at the 12 minute mark. Jerry gets 10 stars for tone and 25 Beautiful Dark Stars for flawless execution. Not one to miss !

Dark Star - 4 minutes ! It's not how long it's how you use it.

Sing Me Back Home - We miss you, Jerry.

Sugar Magnolia - Yes Sir!!!

Johnny B. Goode - Berry good mojo.

Of the 31 songs played the 27 above I would download and spin again.

27 of 31 is a grade of 87.10%

Listening to this now. Sing Me Back Home brought tears to my eyes
- (03/24/2020)

Coronavirus quarantined and listening to this concert for the first time in 47 years and it's as incredible as I remember it. Sizzeling sounds. A 31 song - 4 hour masterpiece. It's why there is nothing like a Grateful Dead concert!
