Week of October 5, 1998
Third of four shows presenting the complete unreleased soundboard recording of February 9, 1973 at the Roscoe Maples Pavilion on the campus of Stanford University.
This was the Dead's first show of the year, and it included the first public performances of seven songs: "Row Jimmy," "Loose Lucy," "Here Comes Sunshine," "They Love Each Other," "Eyes of the World," "China Doll," and "Wave That Flag" (which evolved into US Blues). So the band had lots of new territory to explore in what turned out to be a year full of great performances and deep collective improvisation.
Also: The legendary Stanford Marching Band was known for its non-standard repertoire, and I was later able to license this Dead cover for Stolen Roses: Songs of the Grateful Dead.
