A great show, not complete as Dicks Picks 14 wold have you believe. However, pick it up, it's a must have.

the wharf rat is interesting in that it is played slower than usual...which alows jerry to really stretch out his singing...its absolutely beautiful

i've got the second set on cassette, it's by far my favorite tape i've got. i'm a december '73 guy through and through, and this playin>mlbj>he's gone is as good as it gets. if anyone has a SBD for trade on CD-R i'd love to get a copy. peace to all

i cant belive they cut sugar mag from dicks picks 14, anyways, sick MLB jam, not as good as the MLB jam from 11/11/73 though

The Playin>MLB jam >He's Gone>Truckin>Jam>Stella, SugarMag, Dew is CRUSHINGLY BEAUTIFUL. Go and download the AUD if you have to. This thing ROCKS.

Phil is much nicer to the crowd calling for St. Stephen and other retired songs "we don't play that anymore as well as the Pigpen tunes" as compared to the way he bellowed at them earlier in the year at Utica. Bobby, always quick on the draw continues "that just goes to to show you, we forgot how to play that one, wetried in warm up and gave up..."

Very rarely have I heard shows that I consider to be my favorite just based on the strength of one set. This is an exception. The first set has some highlights ("Cold Rain," "Row Jimmy," "Let It Grow"), but nothing exceptional. The second set to this show is spectacular however, one of the very best sets the Dead ever played.

Opening with "Wharf Rat" is a sure sign that they were starting shit and taking names. The "Playin'" goes waaaaaaay out there into the heart of chaos, a terrifying meltdown ensues before the "MLB Jam" saves us from madness. I don't want to detail every song, but it's worth noting that each one is special and contributes to its five-star quality. The "Dew" serves as a perfect bookend to the 11-30 show - which opened with "Dew" - and wraps up this run at the BMH in a robust, emotional manner. Get the AUD from Archive, then pass it along to a friend.

Anyone else notice that they said they'd see about re-learning St. Stephen before they played there again? Phil said don't promise anything. But the next time they played the Music Hall (June 1976), they actually brought it back for a good 2+ year run! I love those versions!
I don't know why I've never heard of anyone else noticing this. The Boys kept their half-serious promise Precisely!
Saint Stephen!

yes yes yes....

Brown-Eyed Women is super sweet. Keith and Phil are playing so beautifully this night its really something to behold. They add so much. The Phil stuff in Playin is unbelievable. and any MLB jam is not to be missed.

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!!!
