i finished up my raping of the 72 archives ~60 or so discs later... most of my picks i listed before; as for the rest of fall 72 i ended up picking up:
but as i said before a lot of these tours are plagued by some serious mixing and recording issues; luckily i love this period enough to be able deal w/ most of the discretions.
Have you checked out 11/11/73? Someone mentioned it on the other thread. Amazing Dark Star>Eyes. A cool thing about 73 is that some of the jams contain snippets of what will eventually appear on Blues for Allah. This one has the "jam" section for the Music Never Stopped.
another classic show , much hyped for being a crispy sounding winterland show, and the dark star> eyes ...
though not my fav. of the period, def. a solid archive pick. also try the 12-6-73 if you like 11-11. __third longest dark star ever included.____**EDIT**: add 11-17 as another choice pick from this tour --check out the classic segue : PLAyin>UJB>morning dew>UJB>Playin!!!!
which brings me to my next project : 73 __ oh boy!! i think i've found the grail !!
there almost is no point to recommending single shows from this year...as i've started streaming shows, almost every show is an monster-3 set, groundbreaking masterpiece of musical expression that epitomizes what the grateful dead are all about.
say a prayer, hopefully i'll survive and report back to ya'll w/ my favs!!
but in the mean time go to archive.org/gratefuldead/1973 and start your DL!!
