These reviews are of this particular recording:
REVIEW: Bill Graham closing the Fillmore West.
This show is historically relevant. It is highlighted in the Documentary “Last Days of the Fillmore”. The
preceding week before the closing, SF bands (CCR, QMS, Santana and the GD) performed at the
Fillmore. It was an Fm Broadcast with reason. Talk about an underrated show.

REVIEW: favorite year
Mid point of my favorite Grateful Dead year – no more Dark Star/Saint Stephen, and not yet Jack Straw,
Brown-Eyed Women, Tennessee Jed or Ramble On Rose. Exciting nonetheless. BUT – Why is The
Other One split up into EIGHT separate tracks? This an extreme example of something that’s been
bothering me for some time now. Even when it’s functioning flawlessly, this site does not provide
seamless transfers from one track to the next. Neither does any other kind of system I know of. Why
can’t we hear it the way they played it? China/Rider should be one track, so should Fade Away/Going
Down the Road/Fade Away. The sound quality is excellent, but I’m going to deduct a star for the way
The Other One is minced.

REVIEW: The Other One Quandary
Yes it is a pain when someone splits up certain songs for what ever reason. But there is a simple fix.
Download the Audacity software (it’s free) and it is a fantastic way to manipulate music. I use it to splice
tracks togeather, split some into two tracks, remove unwanted dead air, etc. If you really wanted to do it
right, the whole show should be as 1 track with no cuts, splits, deviations, and other assorted anomalies.
But the limitations of this method are such that most mp3 devices will not fast forward thru a track.
Think about it. If you wanted to hear a particular track from this show and it was one track, you’ll be
listening to many tunes before you get to the one you want to hear. So download the software and have
fun tweeking your music.

What is it with the ’71 Dead and guitar tuning? Phil and Jerry are way off for a really long time without
noticing. Couldn’t even keep listening to Playin’. Can they hear thesmelves? It goes on like that for a
while except for a great Good Lovin’ and a little bit of other good stuff, and then…ah, yes, the chopped
up Other One, and I CAN see why this one was diced and sliced: only the Jam and Other One (2) are
really good, the rest is OK/not bad.

These reviews are of another soundboard:
REVIEW: Top Ten!!
The Deadcome back to home base and close the Fillmore West with flash and fireworks.True, like many
71 shows, there are some shaky points, esp. with the newer songs. But for sheer energy and inspired
playing,this show is among the best for 71. The HT Handle may be only rivaled by the 4/29 version. And
Loser has now found its groove, a real highlight. The Other One is fast and furious, and at times sounds
like the 1969 Dead again. Maybe the Fillmore opened a time portal to 69 during the show? Well, this
version IS dedicated to Owsley,ha ha. If you like “Skullfuck” GD 1971, then you’ll love this show, song
lists are very similar. A historic show.

REVIEW: Dayum!!!
This is my favo

REVIEW: great show,
ahh the good ol days. fantastic good lovin and thats it. this is a great show to throw on at a party.not sure
how it sounds yet but i’m sure it’s killer. this was one of the first tapes i started my collection with.
thanks archive, now it is forever preserved on CD. thankyou.

I have a warm spot in my heart for this one. I don’t think they actually get in tune until “The Rub” but I
don’t care. One of the absolute best, and unique, That’s It For The Other Ones. For lack of a better way to
put it, it sounds like they’re playing inside-out. One of the very best Johnny B. Goodes, but then you
knew that. Git it!

REVIEW: holy moley
This is red hot stuff! wow the current Fillmore in SF is the old Fillmore Auditorium and is located at
Geary & Fillmore – the Fillmore West is now a Honda dealership at Van Ness & Market (and was
previously known as the Carousel Ballroom).

REVIEW: Heard this broadcast live on FM
This was an FM broadcast. I heard it live on KMET FM in Los Angeles. I was a lifeguard in Newport
Beach at the time. My friends and I were all pumped up to hear this show since KMET was building it
up all week long. We gathered around the stereo and listened, and I remember the NRPS show too. It
was also broadcast. I remember wishing I had a recorder, but it was 1971, I was a poor just graduated
high school kid and, oh well, hey, I just found the show again when I was 53. Not bad! This show was
also available a few months later on a bootleg vinyl that I bought and wore out on the old phonograph
device. I think I bought a second copy and taped it onto a reel to reel.

REVIEW: Classic
The closing of the Fillmore West is a classic, an Island off the coast of August, not too far past the
historic month of April. This show, for all it’s order and 71 economy sized playing, is outshined by it’s
trancendent Cryiptical Reprise, a time stopper, rivaling the mastery of Alligator thru Cold Rain at the
closing of the Fillmore East cross country two odd months before it, and the Dark Star Wharf Rat Dark
Star Combo from the Capitol Theater 2 months prior. Who sais 71 is tame?

REVIEW: ’71 sound
If you like the Dead in ’71, there’s few shows that’ll satisfy you like this one. Pigpen is all over this one!
One of the most gorgeous renditions of Sing me back Home the band ever played.

REVIEW: Classic
Out of tune or not, this show is required listening and a true classic of the era. Great performances of
everything, including a Good Lovin featuring some unique jamming, and a far-out Other One, with a
primitive version of one of those huge tiger/space meltdowns they’d start doing more and more of
throughout the next few years. A favorite.

REVIEW: Fillmore
Dead, New Riders and Rowan Brothers. I was 21 years old and as I remember the ticket was $7. A
college sophmore from Florida on a summner road trip. What a show. I was already a DEADHEAD and
to get to do Rowan and New Riders was awesome. Pigpen knocked me out and the rest of the show I
will never forget. “The Weight” went on forever and Jerry was unforgetable. To hear this live concert
after 45 years when I was there rocks. Show started at 7pm and ended after midnight, best $7 I ever
