Grateful Dead ~ October 19, 1971
Northrop Auditorium, University of Minnesota -- Minneapolis

1st Set: Bertha, Me & My Uncle, Sugaree, Beat It On Down The Line,
Cumberland Blues, Tennessee Jed*, Black Peter, Jack Straw
Big Railroad Blues, Brown-Eyed Woman, Mexicali Blues
*, Comes A Time*,
Playing In The Band, One More Saturday Night
*, Casey Jones

Set 2: Truckin', Ramble On Rose*, Me & Bobby McGee, Brokedown Palace,
Cryptical Envelopment-> Drums-> Other One-> Cryptical Envelopment->
Wharf Rat, Sugar Magnolia, Uncle John's Band->
Not Fade Away-> Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad-> Not Fade Away

* First Time Played!

Yum! Ya know, I really probably coulda called this 5 stars instead of 4½ (see below) ... I mean the sound is sooo nice. I guess a true 5-star recording is generally rare and should really be as good as a Dick's Picks (or other official release) without any cuts or anything. This is so close to that!

As far as the show itself -- outstanding... mostly. This is Keith's first show with the Dead and they introduce us to six brand new songs. Gone are the extra lyrics in Jack Straw from the 9/29 rehearsal session but there are extra lyrics in Comes A Time that most of us are not used to. Such a cool feel to each of those and to Tennessee Jed and the first Saturday Night, also. So much piano! It's a whole new sound for the GD... well, not a whole new sound but Keith is so noticeable so much of the time.

One wicked mistake in the first set is Jerry's mind goes blank during Casey Jones. Maybe the Dead needed to play that one more????

Anyway... I only had one listen of this before posting and I'm just gonna put it up without any more comments. Perhaps I'll edit this and add some later tonight.

It's no wonder this is no fun.

Ungrateful people should get nothing.

Thanks for posting this one. I'm had a pretty lousy cassette soundboard copy of this in my collection for years. The lack of quality certainly prevented me from choosing to listen to it over the years, and after no longer allows for downloads, I had pretty much given up on getting one. Now, all I need to do is attach some artwork and see where the music takes me!

Thanks for the show. My favorite period of the Dead is when they had one drummer and Keith on piano.

Zapple100 and Anonymous Reggae DJ -- you're very welcome and thank you for your comments. Happy to have you here gettin' some sweet tunes! Comes A Time is such a great Jerry ballad and here it makes its Grand Debut for Dead audiences. It might better over time but debuts are often pretty cool to hear. Enjoy!

Prior to Donna there was a time when the only annoying howls were heard from audience. The intro to the band by Cutler is brief and then there's Bertha, shows some readiness to play. This first show w/ Keith is a treasure.

Thank you,
The Grateful Dad

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
