I mean, while we're sort of on the topic, the Europe '72 box is so sick.  No matter how many times I listen to it, there is always new stuff to find that is stellar.  I think it is so highly regarded because the whole tour is consistently good.  Yeah, the first sets are kind of repetitive (but good) but there is so much material to dig into.  I mean I had never really listened to the end of the first set/beginning of the second set of 5/18/72 and it is just simply a mind blower.  It doesn't look like that much up to the Dark Star (besides Playing) but when you listen, holy cow. I took a bunch of acid at the Gorge two summers ago and did a K bump at like 3 in the morning and then 25 minutes later did one more (probably too big) K bump/line and fuck.  Between It Hurts Me Too and BIODTL I went to hell and back.  It's so good.  Luckily I didn't have the Dark Star,  that might have been too much.  The beginning of the second set up to Dark Star looks regular but it's as heavy as it gets.

I also find 72 to be consistently great and consistently repetitive.  That said, I got "it" listening to the Lovelight>GDTRFB from Hundred Year Hall. 

My first (informed) love, and always crush, for the early 70s will probably be 73.  It took me a long time to warm up to 77 because I spent years thinking it to be too polished and repetitive.

There may be hope for a similar renaissance for 72 in the future. 

That's what keeps me listening.     


26April72 Hundred Year Hall, besides Europe 72, was my first exposure to 72 Dead. 
Comes A Time needs no description, hauntingly beautiful, Jerry at his absolute best.  I still hold the HYHall China - Rider as simply one of their best versions ever.  The segue w/ Phil leading charge is sublime.   Its incredible to have that show unedited along w/ every show from the tour.
Kudos to Lemieux and Co.  They set the bar on archival releases.

New Dave's is a very interesting show (6/17/76).  Less polished than most 76s, definitely loose and groovy.  The Help/Slip is remarkable and the Ship Of Fools is very good.

edit:: Holy shit this Wharf Rat.

Also happens to be the show from the day I was born.

have to give a shout out to this Other One from 9-9-72 that i've had in my car for like the last 4 months.
I've listened to this set  at least 20 times in a row and it still spaces me out every time to the point i dont get sick of it by the next time it comes up in my changer.
35 minutes oozing stuff...

Yeah, I could give a shoutout to all Sept. 72 other ones.  So damn good.  Spring and Summer 72 for that matter as well.  Always something new in them no matter how many times i have heard them.
