My girlfriend and I attended this show. It was quite a trip. We got so blown away by the music that various crazy things happened including getting lost in the parking lot. We found our car but could not find the exit and asked for directions from another lost soul. There was a very small rainbow in a cloud over the stadium that we saw from the parking lot after a short rain. We got married the very next week and we have both been such Dead Heads ever since that we play their songs together.

Seems this was a day of firsts. This was a wild scene on a hot day in DC. An incredible introduction to the Dead, and have been a Dead Head ever since. Have been to over 100 shows since, and get to Phil, Ratdog and DSO shows whenever possible.

...for the show with a bunch of friends from college. We were seated down on the infield not too far from the stage and I was never so scorching hot in my life. Actually, it was dangerously hot. If not for water being distributed and thrown on us (by who I have no idea), there might have been real health issues. I was fairly wasted and what I remember as much as the show was the pre-show sound track being played. Though B.B.King and Janis were two of my favorites, they never sounded better to me than that afternoon waiting for the boys (and Donna) to take the stage. And, of course, the show was great.

2nd Dead show I attended. Went the day before. Nothing like attending an Allman Brothers Band and Grateful Dead show! They played about 12 hours the day before, but I was too wasted to remember how long they played on Sunday. lol Back then, concerts lasted really long, and you certainly got your money's worth. I was only 17 at the time, and had just graduated from Langley High School in McLean, VA that summer. What a great way to celebrate one's graduation by going to RFK Stadium to see the Allman Bro's and Dead play, who, without question, are two of the greatest 'live' bands ever! Just doesn't get any better than that. Too bad Jerry is gone because even though the Dead still tour, they definitely miss his voice and guitar playing. No doubt about it! Also went to the '87 show at RFK where Dylan and Tom Petty opened before the Dead came on. What a hot day that was during that show! PEACE-OUT!

2 days of great music, great people, sharing and enjoying, got hit by a fire cracker, still have a scar on my leg, that's OK, know where I got it. Best memory though, was they had huge towers of scaffolding on the stadium floor and people were climbing them, so they put up security guards at the top. Turned around to look at them during either Sugar Mag or Playin in the Band and the guards were all dancing. Nice if it could have gone on forever.

What a day!! The Allmans came out about an hour before Wet Willie and did a 3 song, half hour sound check, making this longest Dead show ever (I think) even longer than documented.

Three buddies and I went down to DC to to catch the Allman Brothers. We had heard of the Dead, but had not listened to them. Wet Willie and the A Bros were fantastic, the heat was oppressive, the pot haze was choking us (we weren't aware then), and we actually debated whether or not to stay for the Dead. The whole scene was so different than anything we had seen at Asbury Park or Madison Square Garden shows, we convinced ourselves to stay until midnight (we had to be back for graduation rehearsal at 8 AM Monday morning). What a way to be introduced to the Dead! We were so bummed we had to leave, as it was clear the concert was nowhere near over as we left our seats and headed off to the car. We heard the strains of "Not Fade Away" through the car windows as we pulled out. I remember saying something to the effect of, "They do that tune?" Ah, youth!

This was one helluva weekend. I went up to NYC (from Philly) with some friends (who went to Penn and lived in my building) to see Secretariat, and party w/Fats and friends in Manhattan. After that, either late Saturday or early Sunday we drove down to D.C., hung out with some more friends and then went to RFK stadium. After that it was a blur, I was hot, wasted and fadin' in and out all day. All kinds of crazy sh#t went down. At one point some folks wanted to hand me - hand-over-hand - through the crowd to the stage. It was at that point that I went off into the stands. Still though...it was a great experience. the Dead will always hold a special place in my heart...and to Tinker and Freddy, Fats and the rest of you (you know who you are)...Keep on Truckin' Brad By discounting, segregating, ignoring and classifying a whole group of people, one shall never see its full value. The lumping together, of so many by so few, fosters a generality preventing us from seeing the collective individuality which is the motley, the fabric, that makes society what it is. - R. Bradford (1999)

Thank You for Re-Occuring Good Times ! During the midst of a November FURTHUR east coast Tour 2011, on the first "day-off" for the band,crew & fans since the tour started last Thursday. This morning we were treated to hear this entire show-playback started before check-out.. All 3 sets plus a Grateful Dead Head hour break included. The 1st song of set 3 is famous for the Bob Dylan cover with Dickey Betts: "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry. but I never heard Elvis Presley's "That's Alright Mama" too. Great sounding soundboard recording, no hi-cupps. Clean n Mean. Cheers ! Cubby

Hot summer by the Anacostia River!! My favorite Eye's of the world out of a number of regularly jammed Eye's in 73. Fourth set store the show with the Allman Bros. and the Dead ripping it up. Great show, they don't build them like this anymore!!

Can we get this one on Cd, DVD or any other format you can think of. The nasty heat and humidity were mitigated by a great set list and superior versions of many songs. My favorite is the Eye's contained within. It was rocking and thoughtful and went places that others do not. Birdsong always pleasure and a Playin while not the all time best has many treasure imbedded. The Truckin is an underrated gem to be sure but it's the fourth set that makes this show. The Allman Brothers returned to the stage to join the Dead whose many parts were already well lubricated and simmering just below a boil. Jerry and the gang coaxed the Brothers into a full set of familiar songs play at a nice full pace. It was all quite well done and not to be missed!!! VaDead

I remember being on the field near where second base would be, it was very hot. I left my shoes at my spot and started walking around during the Allmans set. Toward the end of the night when the Dead and Allmans were jamming on Going Down the Road Feelin Bad I went back to my spot and there were my shoes where I left them. They had there own little space and were never disturbed. I just remember it as a great show.

I was with older friends, aka chaperones, as I was only 16 years old going on 17 in October, but yet I really don't remember much of the actual show. I do remember the Morning Dew opener and there were 2 long songs better known as Playing In The Band and, at the time a very weirdly played, Dark Star. I later grew to love Dark Star and this 6/10/73 performance of it.The third set was with some of the Allmans and I thought that was real cool of them to stick around for a show closer set. This event made me a Wet Willie fan for several years, along with being a newly minted Allman Bros. fan too. Now a days, I rarely listen to either, but I recently found a stash of Wet Willie on youtube. Ramblin' Man & Elizabeth Reed are amongst my ABB all-time faves. I really fell in love with this show in 1998 when I got my 1st tape of this show. Later I was able to download a fine Charlie Miller re-master, "...89730...", which is near excellent. If the-powers-that-be ever decide to release this show, I hope it is complete with the third set with some members of the Allmans because I think it is an essential part of this show. I would buy this release in a flash. I also understand that Capricorn Records did not allow the Dead's recording system to capture the live Wet Willie. I have yet to hear any audience recordings of their set on that hot and humid day/night.

    This needs to be released ....
    .... but to do so without the 6/9 show and the Allman's sets would be tragic. I know that requires diplomacy and royalties, but, whatever it takes, please "get your hands out of your pockets"! (same needs to happen with Watkins Glen and also needs to include The Band's contribution, but perhaps that would best be saved for another set)
