set 1 at the denver coliseum 11/21/73 began with ramble on rose. i know, i was there.

The night before(11/20/73, also at Denver) started with Ramble on Rose.

Novemver 73 was a great month for Playin>Morning Dew. this one added Wharf Rat and Truckin. Almost as good as 11.17.73.
-Perrinswolf (05/02/2007)

At, this concert has Weather Report Suite AFTER Morning Dew and not closing the first set. I think the setlist here is incorrect.
-Steve (06/17/2008)

I AM WRONG. WRS is in the right slot here, it's wrong at
-Steve (06/17/2008)

There is a distinct dark star jam for about 5 minutes before the start of wharf rat. great show

-Tim (05/21/2010)

Being released as Road Trips Volume 4 Number 3
-Dave (04/11/2011)

First set is freakin' awesome(and I could go on for days about it, esp. Let it Grow and HCS), but it in no way comes close to the second set, one of the most incredible sets of music played by the greatest band on the planet known as Earth. Caution: the jam that begins in Playin' and ends in Morning Dew (what...48 minutes later?) melts faces.

Ok, did the old let's listen to Dave's Picks 5 (11/17/73) and Road Trips Volume 4 number 3 (11/21/73) consecutively. Im not trying to start anything but I think 11/21/73 is just way better as an entire show. UCLA's 1st set doesn't build and captivate throughout the way 11/21/73 ... setlist in Denver is more nuanced ... building towards Here Comes Sunshine ... ok I'm tired but Set 2 is better too ... listen man, check it out
-Michael (08/18/2013)

Disc 2 of the Road Trips is one of the single greatest discs of Dead music ever compiled ... Weather Report, Mississippi Half-Step, Playin, El Paso, Playin, Wharf Rat, Playin, Morning Dew ... the Playin sandwich (even w/ El Paso) is incredibly good and rivals anything the band did during the magical Fall 73 run
-Jasper (06/01/2014)

I agree with above. Single best commercial release.

-Bookkeeper (07/22/2019)

Any show that ends with UJB is an immediate must listen for me. Some of the best sandwiches they ever did in the 2nd set
-Snow the Jam Man (09/17/2019)

Dire Wolf is one of my favorites ever. Great Looks Like Rain and Brokedown. Beautiful and energetic. Rare Big Railroad (not too many from late 73) and its a good one.
