"If you get confused, listen to the music play"

Damn good Eyes of the World. Smokin...

Playin > Scarlet > Playin is just absolutely sick !!!!

Wow, you should see the black n white video and sync it with the board!

I remember during the intermission John Scher had a chimp act on stage to perform. Some guy with a monkey doing tricks. He pretty much got booed off the stage. Hilarious!
It was a long show and the Truckin-Jam-Other One-Goin'Down jam was almost an hour. I sat on the outfield grass (what was left of it) just past shortstop area. Great night!

what was with the "phil & ned"? its not listed above, before Uncle Johns. Same phil? Whose ned?

The Playin jam in this is unbelievable

there's a really long string of jerry's coils during 'GDTRFB'

sugaree- shake it shake it jerry!

My first show!
The original show was about a week before and even though tix said "rain or shine" it rained and they, wisely perhaps, chose not to play.
I remember some biker dude wandering around the infield in the rain screaming over and over "Rain or shine! That's what your ticket says!!". LOL.
So when they came back on the 6th we were treated to an extra long show.
I was 17 and brand new to the Dead and things have never quite been the same since that day.

Between Bertha and Mexicali Blues, Bob says, "The weatherman today said the chances of rain are near zero but that wasn't the only news. Like I said, of course, that wasn't the only news that came out today."
The other news he was referring to was that the resignation of Nixon was imminent. He actually resigned 2 days later. I still remember this comment.
Fabulous show, besides "Eyes" and "Playing", I loved the "Sugar Magnolia, He's Gone, Truckin', Spanish Jam, Other One, GDTRFB, Sunshine Daydream"

joehead, Phil & Ned is actually called Seastones, it's the earliest, complete, electronic musical composition. Only Done in '74.
Phil didn;t always jam with Ned, but Ned jamed with the dead every show there was an Itermission electro jam. He was just turned way down, Supposedly by jerry, but i doubt it.
The jam was a scripted electronic symphony which was jamed out by Ned Lagin's crazy electo set up. They only started encorporating it into their sets a month before their "Retirement". The guy released an album, which i think may contain some of the material from the dead shows he performed Seastones at.
Regardless, it's just a jam by a guy with a bunch of new, High grade synthesizers, for the time, on stage during the intermission, the only time will include it as part of the show is when the dead jam out of it into another song, which is only in London '74. That is not the only time however, their is one of the sickest jams you will ever hear done at the 10/18/74 Winterland show. It is pretty much a third of the second set. Definitley worth gettin spaced out to. Take a listen, if you like bein a space cadet, you'll love that set. and the rest of the show for that matter.

Good show, excellent Phil & Ned. The rare 74 Black Peter is a nice treat, not fall 71 level but still niiiiice.
-Anonymous (11/05/2020)

As others have noted, Playin'>Scarlet>Playin' is really special and is essential listening for all Deadheads. However, it is a shame that DP31 only covered a portion of this amazing show. The sequence from Sugar Magnolia to the closing "My Oh My" of US Blues is a total celebration of all that is Dead. I especially love the He's Gone>Truckin'>Spanish Jam>TOO portion of this incredible sequence. It's what Dead music is all about. For those of you who have only experienced the officially released portion of this show, I highly recommend you seek out the entire performance. Do so, and I'm sure you'll come away with a 'Smile, Smile, Smile'.

this eyes has to be my favourite next to the 05/17 recording earlier in '74. jerry just went all in screaming up in the octaves!
-nathaniel (01/21/2021)

This show is scary good.

Released in its entirety on "Eyes of the World"

Hostess Sno-Balls are underrated.
-Igor Novello (04/30/2021)

For my money the greatest first set ever played, i mean god damn this is H O T.
-Snow the Jam Man (09/02/2021)

... Bertha just got me all smoked up for the entire show....
Crazy in the sunlight, yes indeed AS I, had one of those flashes I'd been there before WHEN the sky was yellow, and the sun was blue..
