Our first selection is from one of the most highly-regarded shows from one of the Grateful Dead's best years, the big jam sequence from 10/18/72 in St. Louis. This majestic sequence features Playing In The Band>Drums>Dark Star>Morning Dew>Playing In The Band, one of the coolest and biggest split Playings from the early days.
Next up is music from the San Francisco Civic Auditorium on the always great night-before-New Year's on 12/30/83, where we have this very good sequence of Shakedown Street, Man Smart Woman Smarter, Terrapin Station.
Finally this week we have the start of the first set from the final night of a three night run at the Capital Center in Landover, MD on 9/13/87, featuring Iko Iko , Little Red Rooster, Brown Eyed Women, Fever , Stagger Lee , When I Paint My Masterpiece. This is the only Grateful Dead performance of Fever.
