“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, November 25th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, November 24, 2019

“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”

Grateful Dead

REVIEW: Bravo! Mr. Miller
Brilliant sound from beginning to “See Ya Later” This one’s smooth and kind!

REVIEW: priceless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a true gem thank you!

REVIEW: A gem in the desert
This is a new source and is exceptional sounding. The show is shorter in comparison to the other heavy weights
from this autumn in 1973 but it is very worry of a listen. The first set really takes off at BT Wind with
outstanding versions of all the classics. The band is so tight and vocally strong, and the version of Row Jimmy
for example, is excellent. The over the top moment occurs during the killer China> Rider. Jerry is in perfect
command and this version is a force of nature.BE Women is also aa keeper. The set ends with a shorter version
of Playing in the Band but it is extremely well played and has a great reprise. Bob does make a comment about
warming up so maybe the weather was a factor in the shorter show? Set two starts off with a rousing Around but
then you get a double dose of what made this fall tour so historic. The Eyes> WRS Suite> Let It Grow is why
you want to listen to this show. The band is at the peak of their powers and delivers the goods big time. They
decide to end the show racing to the gate and do so with extra effort and dancehall effects hitting home runs
with upbeat and cranking versions of mutiple set closers. They surprise the crowd with the second We Bid You
Goodnite of the tour.

REVIEW: Short but sweet
Very nice And We Bid You Goodnight with Donna Jean. Last one of four in 1973 after being revived / not
having been played since 8/71. Would be played once more in 74, then NYE 76 and 78 and gone until revived
again in 1989.
Peace, Bob

REVIEW: Sweet sweet sweet
Takes a bit for this concert to hit the grove, but from China Cat on it rocks.

REVIEW: Incandescent!
In my opinion, this is one of those astoundingly-brilliant-from-start-to-finish concerts which only the Dead in
their heyday could deliver. The Eyes of the World – Weather Report Suite medley in particular is musical
orgasm! I think 1973 was probably the finest year the Dead ever had. The musicianship in that year was
exceptional, even for the Dead: simultaneously so tight and so trippy.

REVIEW: you are so right
there are alotta great years but 73 stands alone, never more out there, yet never more together, every live show i
attended that year was monumental………….

REVIEW: Another 73 Killer show
73, Please transport me back to this year. If there is a god, he hung out with the Dead this year. There simply
was nothing going on better in the world this year. This is a great sounding Miller Miracle redo of a great night
for the dead. The band is beyond tight and yet at the same time ready to extend themselves into uncharted
waters. As someone already wrote the China Cat is awesome with Jerry and Keith beyond creative and
refreshing. Just a great example of why the dead can have listeners searching for new versions of songs they
already own or love.

The first 3 songs are kind of a warm-up. Don’t Ease, Black-Throat and T Jed all smoke. Rest of the show great
but fairly routine, there were practically no bad shows from this period. Awesome treatment of the recording.

REVIEW: The Kind
There’s just so much to love about this show. Charlie’s transfer is wonderful, much improving on the wonderful
but flawed MSR > Cassette > DAT > CD Darrin Sacks transfer almost a decade earlier. Here we are at the
Master Reel > DAT. This is one for the A+ gear. I’m quite taken with the China > Rider, the Playing and the
Eyes > Weather Report. The Bid You Good Night leads me to believe the boys were pleased with how this one
turned out. The pride is well placed. This is a great one.
