Show #7 in my long strange trip through the Dead’s decades. Not a very controversial opinion, but 1972 is my favorite year for the Dead, the perfect mix of cosmic jamz and funky country rock. You can pick pretty much any show from this year and not be disappointed.
Choice cut: Playin’ In The Band-> Drums-> Dark Star-> Morning Dew-> Playin’ In The Band. So great — almost an hour’s worth of far out, telepathic interplay. Bow down to LESH.
