Grateful Dead

Europe '72: Strand Lyceum, London, England (5/26/1972) CD

sku: GRA9900078


The last night. As much the band could be forgiven for being exhausted and ready to go home, they brought their A-game and played what many consider to be one of the top two or three shows on the tour. A 19 song first set (!) ends with the usual second set closer Not Fade Away>GDTRFB>Not Fade Away, and the set also included a 17 minute Playing In The Band, the show at which Playing became the 17-25 minute jam vehicle it would be for the rest of 1972 through 1974. The second, set, though, is so good that it was immortalized on Side 5 and Side 6 of the Europe '72 album. What that album is missing from this jam, though, is a terrific Other One around the Morning Dew, and the finest (and totally appropriate) Sing Me Back Home of the tour.
