Due to lack of comments from most people who constantly Download shows here --
there've been 60 downloads of Garcia-Saunders 2/6/72... go see how many comments --
a plan is being devised to REMOVE all files from the public and put them on a private blog. You'll need to personally contact me via email and explain why you wish to be included in having those files accessible to you.
Only people who give a shit about commenting on some of what you download need apply.
When "Deadheads" download (nearly) constantly but can't even say 1 fucking word of "Thanks" -- that's pathetic.
Some of you are GREAT, wonderful people. Others are just....
I'm sick of it.
37 years ago tonight...
February 6, 1972
Pacific High Recording Studio, San Francisco
Expressway (To Your Heart), That's The Touch I Like,
Save Mother Earth-> Imagine, That's Alright, Mama,
Who's Loving You Tonight?, When I Paint My Masterpiece,
Lonely Avenue, How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)
Could this be any better? Better than what? Better than it already is. No. Well, I think one song is a little bit cut into but other than that this is gorgeous.
Expressway, at just over 11½ minutes, is the longest song of the show and could very easily have been the Encore 'cause it does nothing but kick ass. That's The Touch I Like is also another meticulous version. Exiting our atmosphere, Save Mother Earth spins and tumbles off for awhile at the end, searching other parts of the universe before settling into a beautiful instrumental Imagine. Mmm, so nice. Things get rockin' again, picking up to a near-blistering pace with That's Alright, Mama. Jerry's skillfulness at playing the blues is demonstrated full force on Who's Loving You Tonight? This one is pretty much all Garcia.
One more taste of Bob Dylan is provided before the positively delectable I Was Made To Love Her. Jerry is a slice of perfection on guitar and while Billy is more subdued on drums here, Kahn has more space in this song to really kick his playing up a couple notches. Then just when you think Jerry's taking a brief time out to let Merl and John take the spotlight for a moment, he's right back to being the center of attention again. This just might be the co-highlight of the show for me. It's really a shame that this song was played so seldom: eight known times and the same is true for Who's Loving You Tonight? Worse than that -- Lonely Avenue is known to have been played only five times. Ouch. Such a great job on that one that was once a hit for Ray Charles. Well, the good news is all three are in this excellent show.
