Words By J-man

Grateful Dead Live at Universal Amphitheatre on July 1, 1973.

Mississippi Half Step, Me & My Uncle, Sugaree, The Race is On, Brown Eyed Women, Looks Like Rain, Don't Ease Me In, Big River, China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider, Around & Around Playin' In The Band, Row Jimmy, El Paso, Loose Lucy, Truckin'-> The Other One-> Wharf Rat-> Me And Bobby McGee, Casey Jones

This show from Universal City in 1973, provides the perfect sonic feel of a Grateful Dead show from that era. The near over-modulated guitars, coupled with the quieter vocals and the echo of the venue and crowd make for a nostalgic trip! Highlights included "Mississippi Half Step," "China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider" and "Truckin'-> The Other One." This should make for a great listen for your Saturday listening pleasures!
