Ramble On Rose, complete Weather Report Suite and Sugar Magnolia.
Per Matt Smith:
This is not in the vault. David Lemieux even looked at the box and told me. There may be one more reel
gen but unless Kidd owns the master(s) Jerry(Debbie) had it as well as other AUDS Kidd did.

REVIEW: The first thing I notice, listening to the first set, is that the Dead are playing so well it’s
ridiculous. The second thing is that the crowd energy by the taper is really ugly. What are they booing
during Rain? Amazing Row Jimmy, very slow, very intricate. Splendid singing tonight too. Great all the
way through. Excellent mix.
REVIEW: horns on Eyes of the World?
This is a nicely played show. The sound quality is pretty good.
REVIEW: Excellent Music Here!
Yummy sounding Jerry. Love the old soundboards. Terrific set list and a young band. Love.
REVIEW: The bells of heaven ring…
a nice stand alone China Doll. Greatest Story is such a fine tune in 1973
REVIEW: Beyond Good
the boys are in the zone. I love this show!
REVIEW: from the promised land to the sugar magnolia And everything in between. A great show a 5* all the way.
REVIEW: A gem from ’73
This is one of the best shows I have heard from ’73. The end of the second set is on a platform of greatness
with the first Nobody’s Fault since ’66 > Eyes > WRS > Let it Grow…with Mart’n Fierro and Joe Ellis on
horns as they were most of the end of ’73. Definately check out this show in any format…they all sound good.
REVIEW: Dead at Civic Arena, 1973
Besides the Roosevelt Stadium show in 1972 and Capitol Theatre in 1971, this ranks as no. 3
on the East Coast for the early 70’s! The release of Wake of the Flood was only a few months old and hearing
those songs live really made me appreciate them.
