Grateful Dead - Nassau Coliseum, 9/08/73
Yeah, they used the same poster as for the March shows but for some reason I can’t find one with this date. Technicalities! This audience recording is awesome for a number of reasons, but you may find that pristine fidelity is not one of them. Tough cookies! It’s awesome because you can turn it up, and you are hanging out with these dudes. “We just got in!” “RIGHT ON!!!” Big smiles all around. Later on there’s some mumbled reference to acid, didn’t quite catch it … And anyway, the sound is pretty good after all. If you don’t like it you can always “check for other copies”, cause there’s plenty out there to suit yr earholes. The show? Mind-melting. You will be psychedlicized, like the Chambers Brothers told you. Back in the day when you’d get a full Weather Report, then an Eyes>China Doll … in the first set! And the second set, don’t get me started. Just turn it up. Up!
