New Minglewood Blues
Oct. 14, 1976
Shrine Auditorium

The AUD is amazing. Keith shines, and everybody's into it. Bootstrap '76 knockin' down your door.
The Other One
May 5, 1979
Civic Center

Steady charge, everyone rallying along the theme. Philzone!
The Seven
March 21, 1970
Capitol Theater

To the point - and totally out of the blue. This is Dead magic.
New Potato Caboose
Oct. 13, 1968
Avalon Ballroom

One of their truly psychedelic songs, on a truly psychedelic night. Incredible transition from Cryptical.
Good Lovin'
Sept. 29, 1969
Cafe au Go-Go

High octane Seven > Good Lovin' from a overlooked diamond in the rough.


The Other One
Jan. 21, 1971
Freeborn Hall, University of California

Adventurous indeed! The Other One is dripping, good interplay between Weir and Garcia - Pigpens organ sounds suprisingly good on the below-average AUD recording (though miller fixed the quality somewhat!)
The Other One
Oct. 23, 1970
McDonough Arena - Georgetown University

That segue is so organic you don't even notice it at first; and The Other One is nothing to scoff at. Short but energetic.
The Other One
June 22, 1973
Pacific Coliseum

Yup. This is in my top 3 TOO suites
Playin' In The Band
March 16, 1973
Nassau Coliseum

My goodness; First time listening to this as the snow falls here in the western part of Norway. Many Playins from '72 and early '73 could get stale, but this one aims high and flies higher. Outstanding interplay by Bobby and Jerry as pointed out above - and a six-limbed Bill rolling ruthlessly as Phil lays down the law. Keith hangs on throughout and brings some extra spice. Theres even a fierce Donna scream! Top notch and highly underrated.
Cryptical Envelopment
Oct. 29, 1971
Allen Theatre

Gonna listen to this one later, you grabbed my attention DarkStar!
