truly unforgettable on so many levels...musically they were at the very top of thier game...Bill Graham started the evening off by blasting the Nassau Co. PD for breaking thier word and coming down hard on parking lot activities.He promised thathe would never book the Dead,Allmans,Band the coliseum again,at which point someone set off some kind of loud and dangerous fireworkto which bill said save those for the parking lot and Jerry said"Save 'em for Rockerfeller!"and kicked off with a smokin'Bertha.(true to his word ,at least short term they cancelled the next nights show).During the intermission we met these real Honest -to God hippie FReak chick who said they were from some commune Upstate and they were kinda like nuns for jerry or some shit ...anyway trhey gave us some kinda concoction that was obviously d0osed needless to say the rest of the show was FUCKIN UNBEFUCKINGLEIVABLE!!!!

Bertha "anymore" 7 times at end
BIODTL-5 beats before first lyric
LLRain-great Bobby vocals, spot-on!
China Doll-perfect harmonies all round

LMSY Blues Away-1st/6 times played, all in 73. rather weak IMHO

Truckin'-blues chords midway through, the zenith of the jam does not crash but glides into NFA

E: Stella Blue-odd placement, Phil promiment.
Saturday Night-Bobby still had wind after primal screams in NFA-II

Listening to this show on sirius right now.

What a beat during that Jack Straw, if that didnt have people moving, i dont know what would have.

It's always a great show for me when there is a Jack Straw and Ramble on Rose.

Remember the people pouring the light stick juice on themselves, slinging it around the crowd, madly dancing and glowing in the dark? Everyone close got it on them. I think that stuff was pretty radioactive back then. Who cared. How about how crowded it was up front. I was 14 tagging along with my older brother. First show. Forced our way up front. Got so tight I could lift my legs off the ground and the pack held me up. Bobby did the "OK, everyone take one step back. Now, take another step back...". The crowd loosened like magic. My memory about the cops is they were stationed like armed guards at the ends of every 5-10 rows. Bill G. said they wouldn't play until the cops left. The crowd roared, it got pretty crazy. The band waited. And waited. The crowd got louder and louder. The cops left. Probably thought all those hippies were going to riot. Maybe they were right. As we were walking across the empty, windy parking lot after the show, a rolled up poster was blowing erratically across. Rolled directly to my feet. B&W pic of Jerry and the Strat. I was hooked. Will never forget that night. The poster lives. So do the memories. Like it was yesterday.

Where can I get a copy of this show?

As anyone who attended college on LI during those times can attest to, many a good time band's scene was marred by the local authorities' approach Deadheads west of the police state knew better & avoided their venues. The band preferred elsewhere; but as testimony to their commitment to the music, they often played their asses off at long osland shows.

First show on PigPens birthday after his death
-Skeets (06/19/2014)

Dick about this two night stretch:

Well right away 9/8/73
sticks out begging for attention. Even the night before (9/7/73)
had fairly thrilling versions of TLEO, Jack Straw, PITB, WRS-
>Let it Grow.There is not a weak moment from "Truckin' "
through the ending tune "Sugar Magnolia". Even as good as this
night must sound, the following night things really explode. I
really can't put my finger on it because from the songlist, there is
nothing apparently compelling. Well, you guys will soon find out
what I mean, since I intend to release this one whenever the time
is right.

I wonder if the Dead remembered it was Pig's birthday when they performed He's Gone.

Would have been his 28th.

Kinda bummed that the China Cat is plagued with tempo problems until they finally pull it together for a raging Bobby solo. That is literally the only flaw. The really is, as Dick said, just about as good as it can get. Enjoy!
