My First Time Too!

Hey Bob and Frog,

Yeah me too... We happy few!

Like you said, a barn of a place with dodgy acoustics, but something happened in set 2 which took us way beyond those limitations, and all these years we've been so blessed to have the best portion of it on the Glastonbury Revelations album.

Immortal memories...

my thoughts after listening to the Europe 72 box

Set 1: business as usual in the 1st half, professional, solid but holding back. Stretch out a bit on Tenn Jed. Playing jam begins around 3:30 mark, fast & furious, but still w/in the main theme, 10:30 overall, very nice Playing. Strong Good Lovin’. LL Rain, early version, Jerry’s notes quite different playing the steel pedal, more country. Set ends with Casey.

Highlights: Playing, Good Lovin’

Set 2: Again opens with Truckin’ (# 1 in Turlock), nice jam, good version. Hurts Me Too, lugubrious, very enjoyable. Dark Star: great opening jam, return to main theme at 10:30, 1st verse at 11:30, 2d jam stars slow then speeds up into hyperspace, landing on a serene but strange body before rocketing back into chaos and finding nirvana (in a beautiful jam) around the 28:00 mark, and proceeding into a Sugar-Mag like jam (AWESOME Dark Star) which of course leads into Sugar Mag itself. Sugar Mag goes into Caution, which is hot from the get-go. Show ends w/ Sat Night.

Highlights: Dark Star, Caution

Overall: VG show, 8.5/10. Band is definitely on but coasts during much of set 1 (ex. BE Women, 1 run in the solo, nothing special). But everything is at least solid and the highlights are hot, especially the monster Dark Star.
