Secretariat and The Dead all in the Same Weekend

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'

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.

GD Radio 2011 playback of entire show

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 !

Hot time in the Nations Capitol!!!!!!!!!!

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!!

My Favorite please give us this one beautifully remastered!!!

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!!!
