the dark star that is listed here is actually just a dark star jam....but no matter.....rock ass shit

Go out and get DP v.14. All the discs are damn good, but the second disc....oh my god. 11/30/73 Here Comes Sunshine.Weather Report Suite>>Dark Star Jam>>Eyes of the World.Sugar Magnolia. ......THE BEST. THE BEST. In my humble opinion, it doesn't get any better.

Can anyone confirm that the encore was indeed sugar magnolia. Listening to this show on dick's picks it seems as though sugar magnolia started a mere ten secords or so after eyes was complete. ALso, from what I presume, the ending that the Dead come to from eyes would not be the kind of ending they would put on a show (basically they just fizzled out the jam).

Morning Dew to open the show, personal favorite and good clue to what Nick was talking about for the theme for the rest of the night.

accoring to deadlists sugar mags is not an encore, just the last song

great great great black throated wind

It's the mixing they do to the DP release. Who ever they have doing the mixing and mastering for these DPs is amazing. They splice the tracks together so well, you wouldn't even know there was something in between unless you looked at on of these Setlist generaters.

This run of shows in Boston all just smoke. I like 12/1 a bit better but that is just being picky!

Solid show all around. Gotta love those early BMH shows.

Right before Mexicali, Bobby announces that Donna is not feeling well and is not on tour. Yay! No caterwauling on Playin', which automatically makes it one of my favorite versions.
-JPSanta (04/30/2013)

In Playin', at about 19:45, Phil reminds the rest of the band that they are in the middle of song and need to work on an ending. ;-)

Opening with Dew highlights how important Garcia's vocals and not just his abilities on guitar were to the band. There are trained and practiced singers that can only dream of injecting the feelings and passion out of the lyrics at the level JG does (and not just in this show but many many others). Add in his prowess on guitar and he really was a monumental talent.
-Chucky Bberry (12/20/2016)

a real '73 heavy hitter: the only show where the band plays Morning Dew, Playin' in the Band, Here Comes Sunshine, WRS, and Eyes... and that doesn't even include the Dark Star jam between Let It Grow and Eyes! The guy who yells "play all night" during Morning Dew seems to have gotten his wish.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (08/25/2017)

love this year's sound. that's it.

Morning Dew-Anytime a show starts off with this one, you know it's going to be a special night, and in Boston's case, a 3 night run! Some of the best stuff the boys ever played fromm the Ark 69 show to this one prove, Beantown always was given a dandy diddy!

Dick's thoughts about this run, posted in 1997:

As for the run at Boston at the end of the month and the
beginning of December, well I would have to say that it is just
that, "a run of shows". What I mean here is that I see using these
3 nights as a 3-4 cd release of the "best of a run" kind of deal. Not
one of the 3 stands out on it's own, but in combo, they will deliver
some of the absolutely finest playing of the year!!!

Opening with Morning Dew is such an incredible flex. So badass, only GD could put that off. Very subdued start for an opener but still rocks as hard as anything. It's like they are saying "we're going to demonstrate everything we do that's great all in this first song."

The slow, soulful vocal by Jerry, the big explosive jam in the middle, then we'll slow it down again and do another big jam that builds from so quiet it's almost inaudible to another explosion into the "I guess it doesn't matter anyway!" finale. Remarkable!
-Jack Straw (10/11/2023)

*only GD could PULL that off
