Hi! I'm Admiral James Peacock. Please respect me. I'm Admiral James Peacock!
End of the first set is on the tapers section this week (4/5/10). I still have my soundboard tape (acquired back in the 80s)...Ship of Fools through Sugar Magnolia...good stuff! And what a set list!
I remember lying on the floor in the back of Winterland, listening...I had a fever and felt just awful, but missing a show was NOT an option.
This might be the prettiest Morning dew I have listened to to date............ wow
I knew as was listening to this show i shouldn't comment just yet. However half way threw the Not fade away going down the road not fade I gave my morning dew comment.
Now this baby blue is soooooooooooooooooo slow and sweet. Gotts Love the GOOD OLD Grateful dead every day
I'd been to a number of Dead shows before this, but hadn't tripped at one as yet (well there was Altamont, but the Dead - wisely - chose not to play). To say the least, this show was life changing. The group rapture/collective mind, call "It" what you will was awesome and then some. All I had to do was stop my inner monologue and there it was, divinity personified in all of us. I'm 72 now and look back at my 20 years tripping with the Dead as some of the very best times of my life. God/dess how I miss them.
This show has been officially released on 1 February 2015 as Dave's Picks 13 (Rhino Records R2-547316). It is a limited edition of 16,500 copies. It joins Dave's Picks 9 (5/14/74 Missoula MT) and Dave's Picks 2 (7/13/74 Hartford CT). This is a great show, but the 5/14/74 show does it the best for me.
