Had this tape once in my life...the Let it Grow --> Drums --> Let is Grow is pretty damn good. If memory serves, this was an FM Broadcast and the whole show was good.

I was there this night. It must have been about 100 degrees inside the theater. I was good to have the band back after the layoff. I remember a few times there must have been almost 5 minutes between songs. I attribute that to the heat. I think Garcia was sick too. Help on the Way/Slipknot was awsome! So was Playin'.

WOOOOOOOOW...Melllloooooooooowwwww...playing here is real good...i got lost while listening to this and i am sitting in a chair...:^)..get this one..very nice cosmic...damn, this whole show is grate...

this series of shows were the 1st time the band used the mail in ticket system and me and my brother scored 1st row for the Beacon and like 5th row center for this one .so like was said it was steaming hot in the place so the crowd was super mellowed out .during let it grow Jerry plays this amazing little riff and I stand up and yelled out and he looked right at me and grinned that cheshire cat grin ijust remember that connection that was always there from a small place to a stadium there will never be another like him.

Tennessee-passionate stretched out vocals by Jerry!

Samson-11/364 times played
High Time-seamless transition from Samson, soft and sultry Jerry voice.
Around-You can tell how hot and tired were the boys by the tepid start of this one
GDTRFB-yet the sprang back to action right quick with this show-stopper

E:NFA(not on tape) too bad


Playin'- Mid part has far reaching hypnotic jamming. When I first heard it, i thought it was late 72 or summer 74. Quite impressive indeed.

This show was on the old WNEW-FM. Right before they do Around and Around if you listen closely, you hear Garcia say to Bob Weir..Hey Weir, how bout some rock and roll. But then he says to Phil lets do St. Stephen, but opt for what they finished the set with. If you also listen closely, Weir is counting off and and just before they start, he goes a little slower a little slower you hear whoever say have mercy Weir. It is on my tape from the radio so I guess anybody with a board recording will hear that too.
