The wait is almost over for Europe '72: The Complete Recordings. We're proud to announce we've completed the project production stage and the final disc tally is a whopping 73! Pressing is underway and we're on target to meet our expected ship date.
As a special project-ending taste of the boxed set, we've got this tremendous version of The Other One from 4/11/72 in Newcastle, selected by David Lemieux. He considers this to be one of the finest, most dynamic, most powerful jams of the entire tour, high praise for a tour that included mind-blowing and mind-bending jams virtually every night of the tour.
Listen to it here.
Please be patient while track loads.
