hey @US Blues, how's the Eyes from Springfield?
Pulled out Europe '72 box today because of all The RSD talk about L'Olympia Paris 5/3/72.
Yeah I missed out on vinyl as well. I Played the show today , all four disc....sad I missed vinyl but happy I have this show and 21 others.
Show sounds as good as I remember and it's hard to pick a best show from this Tour....so they are all good in there own way.
I thought about eBay but I paid $650 for 22 shows and cool box orginialy, couldn't rationalize $200 plus for RSD vinyl and don't want to feed the flipper beast.
Europe '72 and complete Dylan 1966 Live recordings keep me going and I never tire of the music.
I'm ready for the next Box from Dead as Dave promised....come on Dave ....early Dead please.
Great “Eyes” from Springfield………must be referring to 3/25/85.
Listening to Miller’s 5/20/73 and Jerry’s voice is raspy. Kinda love when he’s half lost his voice.
IWT! Those '85 shows just rock the house!
3.19.73, Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY
He's Gone is the second song, played standalone just a few days after Pigpen's death. Short but gorgeous first solo by Garcia. Everyone really seems to get into the "Nothing's gonna bring him back" vocal section. Is this considered the first time the song was played in remembrance? I don't think it sounded all that different, but knowing the context makes me think that the song might have started to take on new meaning around this time.
They Love Each Other is fast, very tight version. Phil kicking ass and Bobby sounds good in the background. As per usual, China > Rider and PITB are solid.
Pretty nice segment of Truckin' > Drums > The Other One, Eyes of the World > China Doll. Eyes in particular was unbelievable. What a solo by Garcia!! It just kept going on and on.
What are we calling this now? Bzfgt syndrome?
Tonight discs 2 and 3 of 30 trips around the sun
You're not @US Blues
Tremendous Stella, too. I had to listen to it twice tonight, I was so blown over by it earlier today when I heard it. Just a textbook, gorgeous Stella Blue, Jerry extracts every bit of emotion and nuance from it that night.
Re "He's Gone," I was looking at this essay earlier today and it mentioned that there was a Rolling Stone review of this show mentioning the Pigpen connection with this song.
The 2nd set is most unusual—featuring a real-melodic, super-heady St. Stephen opener; segueing into an intense, mega-jammy Not Fade Away—is that a glimpse of a Dark Star tease just before NFA comes back in(?!); before transitioning into a beauty Stella Blue—I don’t think the Dead played that sequence again?! It’s a definite highlight of the box. An absolutely gob-smacking Stella Blue is an all-timer—long and languorous with an otherworldly outro, its downright gorgeous that’ll leave you slack-jawed in amazement;
This arvo’s listening is Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ, 16/06/91.
Nothing that really stands out here. It’s a solid enough show; the highlight being the pre-Drums 2nd set sequence Jack Straw, Crazy Fingers, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider which features some enthusiastic and energetic band interplay.
I: Picasso Moon, Bertha, Little Red Rooster, Candyman, Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again, Stagger Lee, Let It Grow.
II: Jack Straw, Crazy Fingers, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider > Drums > Space > I Need A Miracle > Black Peter > Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away.
E: Box Of Rain.

I'll cue it up this morning, let's hope the cobwebs'll clear outta Benny's eyes
I was there. Definitely dwarfed in my memory by 6/17 and several other shows that tour, but it’s played well overall. The pre-drums sequence is the most notable part by far, and really the only part I remember much about from the show itself.
it was 6/17/91 disc 3 filler for so long it almost made me forget there was a show on 6/16/91
That is a wonderful mixtape of a compilation.
Hey, I know this is a really old post but I've been meaning to say thank you for the recommendation on this seller! I was completely unfamiliar with that story. I picked up one of these from him last year and eventually got it set up in my room.
Disc 2 is what's good.
