Woweeeeee!!!! Get this show at all cost!! Very high-qual copies are easy to find and that is a wonderful thing, because this one is what it's all about!

a fine, fine show. True to the 1974 Form. powerfull, action-packed and a whole lot of fun. don't miss the almost 20 minutes of playin'. a real treat :) e-mail for a copy.

Greatest of all time? I've yet to hear a better WRS Suite, and that playin' is phenomenal (save for Donna's war cry). A must have from a great year.

forgot to mention the dark star > morning dew - beautiful. one of the best you'll ever hear.


I have only heard China > Rider for this show. I have to say what a subtle and beautiful transition jam into Rider. If anyone can help with the rest of the show, it would be great. It one of those shows.

hey everybody, captinhappy is a thief, don't trade with him

I have the Ship of Fools and Promised Land from this show as well as the BAby Blue encore. Seems like a great show so far.

I would like to find a cd copy of this show (or any complete show in '74 for that matter). If anyone is able to trade, i have plenty to trade. Thank You very much.

the darkstar>morningdew from which all other are measured. the 10.19.73 is good, this is better.

another top-notch show from '74. keith's playing throughout on the rhodes is spectacular. overall great show.

my favorite show, from weather report on is the definition of mellow. baby blue is spectacular, and so is everything inbetween. get this

Wow! Just downloaded this off of and it's one of the best shows I've ever heard. Playin' and Dark Star are out of this world. And the sound quality is great. You guys looking for the complete show, head over to and hear for yourself!

Candyman-only time played in 74, and not again till mid 76.

Morning Dew-Jerry takes his time w/the vocals, stetching them out at choice parts, but his voice remains butter throughout.

Before "U.S. Blues," Bill Graham says, "This is a peaceful Sunday night with the Grateful Dead." Happy 35th anniversary of this consistently top quality show. Top 5 for the year, along with:

6/18/74 (my personal favorite)

Oh yes, the boys were tearing it up in the summer. Dig these shows if you haven't already.
-Ed (02/24/2009)

I have a cd of stella blue onward keith does a killer solo on promised land never heard play it that way dark star is way weird baby blue ends it with class but jerry sounds a little spent by then
-Stagger lee (06/28/2009)

this is one of the best versions of morning dew I have ever heard. only possibly eclipsed by 5/8/77 or 5/26/72.

DARK STAR > DEW!!! It's insane! the rest of the show is outstanding too, but for the jam fans this dark star is something special and the jam climaxis with a perfect transition into a top 10 verrsion of dew! Highly recomended

Too many highlights too mention them all, but I see everyone has overlooked the spectacular NFA,GDTRFB,NFA the first jam after NFA is AMAZING...Jerry is just CRISP. And as far as the Dark Star>Dew, WOW man, so many exploratory spaces, mini grooves, and tangent jamming. This show has been a top 5er for me since the beginning. Dont got it...GET IT!!

This show is great but wow donna fucking sucks it up on BIODTL. Dont get me wrong she had "some" great shows but she is horrible on a few cuts from this otherwise great show
-Anonymous (04/13/2012)

What an amazing show
The China/Rider is one of my favorites along with:
6/10/84 - check out the Rider here folks

Dark Star is epic
El Paso - love almost every version especially the longer ones
WRS - enjoyed this version too

wish i had been there
thanks to all who help make these recordings possible

Fuck Yeah Perrins Wolf!
-PosterNutBag (09/24/2015)

Just started listening to this show about a month ago. It has a really excellent Candyman (a song I last remember liking in the early 80's); I'm not a great connisseur of that song, but what a "What the hell was that" moment after the first time I heard this version. The China Cat, with Mind Left Body Jam, is sweet. And I've just heard the Dew for the first time and am finding it to be spectacularly powerful.

-Bookkeeper (07/21/2019)

Strong contender for best show of '74, fantastic setlist, only Candyman of the year, best WRS i've heard Keith especially great, Dark Star > Dew is beyond words with Billy doing some of his best work on Dark Star and that Baby Blue encore is just exactly perfect
-Snow the Jam Man (11/21/2019)

Mellow and flowing show, nice listen. Great end to a weekend of 74 magic at winterland.

Only Candyman of 74.
-Anonymous (07/08/2020)
