Grateful Dead

April 8 Wembley Empire Pool, Wembley

As great as the first night at Wembley was, the second night was even better. Played again before 8,000 fans, it featured one of the finest Dark Stars of the tour, as well as the "Cumberland Blues" that appeared on the Europe '72 2-disc compilation set.

Tune into a stream of "Dark Star" from this show.

This Dark Star.....

will forever remain a high point in the history of civilization.

Really nice Dark Star. Counting the weeks until my box arrives. Just read that Further is playing my town this Summer, unreal. Outdoor show 7 min from my pad. This Summer is going to jam.

39 years ago at this very moment I was high as a kite and flying with the boys. I'd waited 7 years for this and it was all and more than I had expected; even the cavernous and uninviting Empire Pool couldn't detract from two nights of the most sublime music. Thank you guys - and Donna.

Dark Star -> Sugar Mags -> Caution

is for the ages. Caution heads straight back to 1968. Latvala's favourite. My favourite. The segue out of Dark Star into Sugar Mags is beyond exquisite and takes me every time.

Love those icons . . .

It would be nice to include a small rainbow foot or ice cream kid icon next to songs in these lists that were included on the original E72 LP release, since that was such a classic itself.

Listening to all the samples, its clear what a milestone release this will be; everyone's singing and playing is so fresh and determined—they OWN these songs!

This set could obviously form the core of any GD show collection . . .

Cheers, Laser
