out of sight, out of mind best audience tape ive ever heard from that era.A true jewel.

Probably the most bizarre second set ever. Great US BLues encore...This is the first appearance of Franklin's Tower jammed out from a Help->Slip.

It is also the first Crazy Fingers. Not only is it the first appearance of Franklin's Tower jammed out from a Help->Slip, but first appearance of Franklins and Help at any performance.

This Help on the Way also is played without lyrics. Quite cool.

Best. Peggy-O. Ever. Help > Slip > Franklin's is MeltYourFace good.

The Spring of '75 marked one of the Dead's many transitional periods, this one coming after their touring hiatus in 1974 as well as Mickey Hart's return from imposed exile after recording the 'Ameican Beauty' album. 1975 was also the band's 10-year anniversary, if one dates their formation from Lesh's arrival. As with all their changes, the band emerges with a fresh energy for the tunes, with tighter arrangements and - finally - a better integration of DJ's voice!

this is the Bob Fried Memorial concert. Lived close to Winterland, bought the cheap ticket pretty close to the day of concert. had buddies that were into the dead, I was more a led zep, stones, eagles, type. anyway, I went. they grabbed my bottle of southern comfort as I went in. Pretty dumb of me, tucking it in my wasteband. once in, not many memories, just a longggg longgg show. could not wait for it to end. Sorry, just being honest; I was 13. Without the alcohol, it was a snooze fest. Don't even remember having much smoke. Of course, nowadays I would kill to attend such a show. goes to show, sometimes we don't know what we have. thanks for reading. oh, to show how things and tastes change, I now have over 500 dead tapes...
