The Deadpod

Apr 3, 2020

I had mastered an entirely different show for this week when I was reminded of this one... I played this one back in 2003 on-air at KOPN in Columbia MO, but never here on the podcast. This one is a monster. We have one of the best of the Spring 73 shows, this one from April 2nd.. Boston Garden.

It's a 16 song first set, great sound (a bit of a rough start but that was common in this period :).

While the stretching out jams don't come here in set 1, there is a ton to love here. There is a stunning 'Looks Like Rain', followed by 'Wave that Flag' - the precursor to 'US Blues'. The jam on 'Big River' is thunderous, and the 'China>Rider' is just exactly perfect. They close this set with a long and very interesting 'Playin' in the Band', coming in at around 18 minutes.

97 minutes of some of the finest Grateful Dead.. don't know about you, but I need it..
