Set 3 was perfomred with blues queen Etta James & the Tower of Power horn section.

Listen to Bobby say "Holy Fuck that's a lot of balloons" as they start Sugar Mag. Great Show and great props from Etta James

Classic, once-in-a-lifetime third set - audio and video are around.

the dinosaurs opened the show, it was an awesome evening.

Hard To Handle-Last time played out of 101 shows. 2nd time that year, after 12 year hiatus(Gaelic Park show 8.26.71) Hard to fathom...

Lovelight-Etta and the horns put a whole new spin on the song. Entire set is somewhat of an "ode to Pigpen" this here fan thinks.

i wouldn't say an ode to pig. pig was a faithful practitioner of the blues that were around long before he dead picked the tunes up. all of the tunes played with etta, were more or less, old time standards.

first "Baby What You Want Me To Do" since 9/07/69

I remember stumbling out of the arena around 6am and having breakfast served in the park. Nothing much made sense. I didn't come down for days. Potent stuff, kept twirling all the way back to Santa Barbara.

First midnight hour since 4/29/71

In similar fashion to the previous night, the magic gets cookin' in post drumz land.

No doubt in my mind that the return of the blues standards was a fitting nod to the days with Pig Pen. Etta teased Bobby and Jerry throughout the set with her. It was like watching the band enjoying the thrill of what's next...

Jerry plays well, despite the continued decline of his voice; but, he really wakes up starting with Not Fade Away!

A show that will make you smile. Stay focused on the fun and don't get too technical about the execution, most amazing show debates; just enjoy one more moment in a 30-year long strange trip. Thank you, boys and girl (Etta).

Who's that other singer on Lovelight? Is that Paul Butterfield?
-Anonymous (05/16/2013)

Just found a tape of this in the street in San Rafael. It plays awesome, great show, great energy. I was 18 months old across the bridge in San Anselmo, probably sleeping, that night.
