Legendary event

On the streets of NYC in the 70's this show was legendary. Those who had been there spoke of it with reverence as being better than Woodstock for them. They were like, 'yeah, sure, Woodstock, but the show to really be at was Watkins Glen'. And they'd say no more. Apparently there were no words to express this event. You had to be there.

This show should be released

This show should be released as a 5 or 6 disc set. The first & second discs are the GD's 7/27/73 soundcheck sets ; the third, fourth & fifth discs are 7/28/73 ate the Dead's set of the actual show. On the sixth disc are the encores with members of the Allman Bros Band & The Band on Not Fade Away, Mountain Jam, & Johnny B. Goode, if legal arrangements could be made. Sing Me Back Home should fit on the fifth disc.
My copy of these shows are a mix of soundboard, FM broadcast, & audience recordings, they are nice and interesting, but nothing sounds all that great. The music shines through the less than stellar tapes that have been traded for years.

This show should be officially released

Nearly 4 years after my other post in 2012, I'll say it again, this show with the soundcheck event should be officially released, if all or most of the audio elements are there. That is, the soundboard recordings of the the Grateful Dead's portion of the 7/27/73 soundcheck and the full Grateful Dead 7/28/73 show, with the end of show jam of Not Fade Away Mountain Jam & Johnny B. Goode.
