“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, May 16th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, May 15, 2022

I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
“REVIEW: stella
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance
of the tears streaming down the face of the girl beside me. She seemed
have a religious experience. Now I know why”

Grateful Dead
Theatre Hall, Luxembourg, Luxembourg
May 16th, 1972
Radio Luxembourg FM Broadcast > 1st generation Reel > PCM > Dat
Thanks to tim Dalton for the source DatThanks to Charlie Miller for the transfer
Mastered by Scott Clugston

This recording is in the Archive, but is listed as a soundboard, when it is an actual
FM recording. I have searched high and low for Set 2, but apparently a Set 2 FM
does not circulate.

I was part of a 17-student exchange program with the Polytechnic of Central
London, Marylebone Road, London(directly across the street from Ripley’s, if you
have even been there). Saw 4/7/72(my first) with my buddy Larry, from the very
last row at Wembley. Had a cheap desktop AM/FM/cassette recorder and taped
this live of the air. Played it back a few times and then recorded over, because the
recording was that crappy. Now, i could kick myself!!!

Set 1:
1. Bertha
2. Me & My Uncle
3. Mr. Charlie
4. Sugaree
5. Black Throated Wind
6. Chinatown Shuffle
7. China Cat Sunflower >
8. I Know You Rider
9. Beat It On Down The Line
10. It Hurts Me Too
11. Tennessee Jed
12. Playin’ In The Band
13. Promised Land

There are no revews of this recording. The following are all from various
soundboards. References to Set 2 are omitted:
REVIEW: International Precise
So tight if Bobby doesn’t drop the first line of Truckin then I bet this would have
been close to a Dick’s Pick. Anyhoot. The band so freakin focused it is scary. No
acid test, no west coast groovin’…they are all playing as pieces of a very powerful
whole here in Lux. yaowzers!

REVIEW: What a great run
Such a high standard for all these Europe 72 shows. The material was fresh and
played with crisp perfection. This is not my favourite of the run but still deserves 5

REVIEW: Jerry over runs Luxembourg
this first set. It is so hot that after a absolutely rippin’ PITB they throw in a slam
dance Promised Land closer. Note: Weir is pretty cheesy on the running
commentary. but vocal wise he nails just about everything.

REVIEW: Nice little show
Easy to overlook this one, with so many great Europe shows to listen to. But
surprisingly, a very tight, energetic show. Not a very long show, by comparison,
due to the fact this was a live FM broadcast arrangement. So the sets are compact,
and right to the point. Great versions of Mr. Charlie, Sugaree and Tenn Jed. And
the Playin is
long and features some amazing Jerry wailing on the wah wah.

REVIEW: Highly under-rated shows…
Radio Luxembourg was one of the first tapes I ever had, so I’m a bit biased about
this show. Nice, tight, radio-friendly versions of songs (as radio-friendly as the
Dead could be in ’72). FM broadcast with mediocre sound, but I do dig the idea of
this hidden gem of a show blasting allover Western Europe one spring morning
way back when…

REVIEW: Typical Europe ’72.
Don’t overlook this show, folks. It’s easy to pass it by in the light of 5/11 and 5/26.
Great, tight playing with mostly solid singing and an excellent adventurous

REVIEW: 72 favorite
Maybe because it’s shorter and tighter than most of the Europe shows, I find myself
coming back to this one for a quick fix. I also somehow like the fact that this was
being broadcast across Europe. Good starter set(s) for Dead and non-Deadheads
too. 5 stars. What’s not to like?

And, in the last half hour:

Grateful Dead
Compolindo High School Gym, Moraga, California
May 16, 1969
SBD > MC > C > D > CD > EAC > SHN

This is all that is listed for this show in Deadbase or Deadlists, so it may
very well be all of what was a short show as other bands were on the billing:
1. Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl
2. Doin’ That Rag
3. Me & My Uncle
4. Hard To Handle
5. Turn On Your Lovelight
