Happy Valentine's Day!
I couldn't think of a better love letter to send to all of you than a fine portion of classic Grateful Dead from 1974.. from Winterland no less..
this beauty comes from the February '74 run - in this case February 23rd. This first set starts with a rocking 'Around and Around' - a different and welcome way to open a show. They follow with three ballads - 'Dire Wolf', 'Me & Bobby McGee' and 'Sugaree'.. Mexicalli follows then one of the highlights of this first set is a strong 'Here Comes Sunshine'. They 'Beat it Down the Line', then a 1st set 'Ship of Fools'. 'Jack Straw' and 'Deal' follows, then a great rocking trifecta of 'Promised Land', 'Bertha', and 'Greatest Story Ever Told' to end this first set.
We will get to hear the second set next week..
