Can we talk about the Dead?  I'd love to talk about the fucking Grateful Dead, for once, can we please discuss the Grateful FUCKING Dead!?!?!?!

nice glad you liked it, I didn't hear the brief Spanish jam in this one but I did in the 9Sept. version, esp. the towards the latter 1/3.

I'm downloading now, so I'll report back.

I'm gonna post stream-of-gumbo-like as it goes along...


Jam begins w/ much ferocity out of drumz > everyone is playing with great energy.  Jerry's first deviation around 1:05 is breathtaking.  I'm sure playing the 'dam must have been epiphinous for them.  Jerry plays with a barage of notes, signaling he is already in a zone.  Things begin to mellow near 3:30, Garcia goes into one of his classic bluegrass picking styles before mellowing into some swing.  Nice space here, Phil laying it down sweet.  A lot of the notes Jerry plays remind of Hundred Year Hall.  I love his tone on this tour being a huge Fender fan.  Jam still mellow and spacey around 7:00 before Garcia begins a low funk riff increasing the pace.  Here he explodes into a The Other One tiger riff.  Billy and Phil re-convalesce.  Jerry switches to rythym and goes back into his TOO varied riff.  Picking up speed he leads in off that being chased by Lesh.  Keith and Bob chording aggressively, no doubt inspired by Garcia.  Main theme after 11:00 into Spanish Lady >
Heavy dissonance space, free.  Phil contemplating Footsteps, classic acid test like experimentation here.  Jerry emitting scary sounds, tweaking the wha.  Really hammering on his strings into a super growl Tiger, sounding very much like an animal roar(Garcia = Leo).  Growl into mellow space, Jerry way out ahead of everyone leaving the others meandering, confused, not in sync neither in tempo or key w/ Garcia.  More dissonance, Phil beginning to drop bombs w/ feedback.  Memories of the Luftwaffle, chaos.  In comes Billy and Phil to the rescue at 20:00 creating a nice segue.  Jer locks in at 20:40, nice high energy swing.  Bob low in the mix or seems not active.  Jerry downshifts into another finger modulation.  His strat emitting a great overall tone, tubular.  Garcia chording, trying to maintain the jam's initial propulsion.  Jam picks back up into another TOO themed jam >
Jerry and Keith hooking up well, great thematic jamming led by Garcia's energy and creativity.  More fingerpicking into cool chording by Jerry at 26:50 where he takes more flight, Bob underneath, Phil in between.  Great mix.  At 29:00 Jerry plays a unique series of notes, very experimental for the period.  The jam quiets w/ him and just Bob and Phil.  Garcia gazing into the audience.  Trippy Garcia, Bob laying down a nice chordal segue.  Slight Spanish Jam feel.  Sounds as though Jerry wants to end it but they keep spacing on before Bob and Phil drop into Bobby McGee >
nice version, inspired vocals.  Tasty leads by Jer, liquid.  Bakers-field Garcia. >
back into The OO, Jerry ripping off some more great lines.  2nd verse > WR.

A+

I listened to this TOO this past Thursday evening, and it was mind blowing.  The band was so, so tight.  I loved the tempo change during Bobby McGee.  It is also incredibly psychedelic too, and Jerry's tone and style seem a bit out of the norm in this version.  Great pick, and thanks for the download.

Thanks, man. Great choice. I believe I had this on cassette back in the dayŚ unless it was another crazy Other One > Bobby McGee > Other One. Wow. I forget how sick 72 can be.

I meant to comment about this earlier.  I could see how you "heard" Spanish jam, but it sounded like a coincidence a la the highly debated 1995/12/31 FOTM tease.

There were a few TOO> Bobby McGee> TOO from that Europe 72 run.  Can't remember them off hand, but I listened to the whole run in August and remember there being some cool segues in the second sets.
