“There Is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!”

Grateful Dead
San Antonio Municipal Auditorium, San Antonio, Texas
November 26, 1972
This is a restored version of SHNID 9248 combined with SHNID 123022 to produce the full show.
It is not based on any new sources. Modifications by Dan McDonald

A masterful rebuild of a concert wherein only one soundboard circulates:
“According to David Lemieux the only version of this show in the vault is a cassette, so the lineages of the
original ShnIDs listing the original source as a master reel is most likely incorrect. “

REVIEW: such young Great Souls
They sound so

REVIEW: Slamming Cleanup
Everything from the fall of 1972 is a priceless treasure as far as I am concerned. You upgraded the sound on
this one DRAMATICALLY. What great work. Thank you. I always thought this was a hot show, but the
poor fidelity was always too much of a distraction to really want to play it except very occasionally. The
improved sound makes this one not just “turn the corner” but sprint around it. It now has a honored place in
the shows from Fall of 72 that I play regularly, which happens to be pretty much the most honored place in
my collection. People — Listen to this one. This show has exemplary versions of Dark Star and GDTRFB.
Actually, the whole show is one giant 72 inferno.

REVIEW: have to admit it’s getting better
This is another great Texas show from 72. Maybe not the best (and maybe the least of them all) but … still
great. Nobody’s slouching (this is 72 after all) but Jerry really picks up steam towards the end of the first set
and keeps on delivering the goods. Rock and roll. There’s a great jazzy Playin’ with Keith all over the keys to
begin the second set and a very fine Dark Star with a tasteful Phil solo and minimum darkness. This is a
stand alone GDTRFB without any Bid You Goodnite outro. It’s a barn burner and arguably the high point of
a great show (did I mention this is a great show? … yes, I see that I did several times already!). The sound
quality is not excellent, due to the noise/level reduction artefacts commented upon in the Notes. But it’s
perfectly listenable. Give it a whirl and look forward to the unearthing of the master tapes at some point.

REVIEW: cool show
First time I hear a Dark Star segueing into Me & Bobby Mgee (Janis Joplin & Kris Kristofferson would be

REVIEW: A Soaring Feeling Groovy Jam
My four stars are assigned solely to the Dark Star. If nothing else, you simply must check out the Feeling
Groovy Jam in the DS, from about 18:10 to 20:40. Thanks to whoever inserted the seven second-long splice
at 20:08.Soon after the ultra-happy FG jam, things get decidedly dark and scary. Chilling stuff.

REVIEW: You want underrated?
Here it is. Not the best soundboard but this is a five and only five star show. This is literally the best
GDTRFB ever. Play as loud as possible! Phil is prominent!

REVIEW: it really isn’t THAT bad…
I have analog tapes that I listened to over & over that sounded a whole lot worse than the first part of this
recording, so by comparison it’s not all that bad. You can hear everyone on stage, it just sounds like your
listening to it with ear plugs. I have found every song–I’m up to PITB–to be played with the aplomb they
gave to seemingly EVERY show in ’72. The quality of the performance excuses the sound quality, so go
ahead & LISTEN—it’s ALL in the music…


REVIEW: Feeling groovy
yes they were. five stars for that alone

REVIEW: Not best recording but stellar Performance.
Like most have said it seems that the soundboard was playing tricks on everyone for a little while but the
band was in stellar form, DS is def a trip back, def one to listen to – also the GD never returned to San
Antonio again in my memory , although I could be wrong… Anyway def worth a listen, the performance
alone is def worth it.. four stars.
