REVIEW: Worth a Listen
I am not one of those people who gives 5 stars to a show just to go along with the other reviewers.
For the most part, Dick’s Picks are what I think are 5 star shows.That being said, this is worthy of a
solid 3 stars. There are some really great jams here. My & My Uncle is great. I love Hard to Handle.
PigPen is rough and raw, Jerry electric and energetic. Attics of My Life is also strong. The sound
quality is O.K., but not great. But all in all, very much listenable. I recommend this show highly.

REVIEW: Nice show, SBD mix degrades
A nice tasty show and OK sound at first–the mix could be more pristine and gets worse into
Lovelight. Reports were that the Grateful Dead were a warm-up act, coming up from London to fill a
4:30 afternoon spot.

REVIEW: Forget about the sound degradation – this show rocks
This is not intolerable by any stretch of the imagination and this show is really superb. Everyone is
really on – Not sure what I like the best.

REVIEW: Man we’re getting spoiled…
…if this is considered unlistenable. It’s still so much better than about 90% of the cassettes I ever had
it’s not even funny! A very fun and energetic set, with a nice Attics as a special bonus. How many
times was Attics ever played live anyway, fewer than 20?

REVIEW: 5 star Dark Star
Just lisen to the this Dark Star!I think they scared a few people that day.Might scare you,so hold on
to your seats.

REVIEW: Europe 1970!

REVIEW: What a great concert….
It was simply massive to see these guys for the first time in Europe. The guys were in great form,
playing at this crazy festival in a beautiful surrounding blending the hot day into a mild night. With a
great Dark Star still ringing in my head after – wow! 36 years! Thanks the guys making this

REVIEW: 5 stars
you guys giving 3 stars need to go back to mars.

REVIEW: China Rider
One of my favorite Rider’s. I’ve spent so much time with the late 70’s and 80’s sbds that I had
forgotten how “heavy” the Dead could sound.

Nice jam in dark star worth the listen. Think its a darkness jam kind of Uncle Johny, pretty long as
they go. If you like 9/18/70 Star Check this out. Peace And Love to the Dead And all the heads

REVIEW: steal your face
and freak out your house pets with this Dark Star. primal show

REVIEW: Crackling with energy
Tubes are hot, levels peaking. Sounds nice to me. This Other One is white heat jamming. It is
ELECTRIC. You can feel the power of the amplifiers…the sensitivity of the microphones. Billy’s
kick drum probably sounds pretty close to what Jerry heard standing on stage. Turn this one up. You
won’t be sorry.

REVIEW: Smokin’ Show
Very strong performance of The Dead in Newcastle, UK. The recording is bit rough around the edges
but what do you expect when Bear is passing around some heavy medicine. My thinking about tape
noise/cuts is that they can often mirror what the dead is about. A crackle or hiss here or there is not
so dissimilar to A jam that fermented out of some idea or passage. I would have loved to have been
