Subject: Uncle Johns Band jam
Is it just me or is there an awesome ujb jam around the 15 through 16-17 minute point in Dark Star. Dont mistake this for a tighten-up jam listen to Bobby he is absolutly playing Uncle Johns and it is very swwweeeet.
Subject: I want to hear this badly!
I really want to hear this show but i can't figure out how to stream or DL it. It looks epic but I can't afford to buy it. Any help? email@example.com
Subject: New Riders of the Purple Sage!
"we're gonna evoke your collective sense of piety"
lol. frikkin decent. i went looking for another purple rider's set i only heard once and stumbled upon this one instead. i had this set on my computer already but hadn't heard it yet. total jam.

Subject: THE SHOW!
THIS IS THE SHOW THAT BROKE THE CAMELS BACK AND TURNED US ALL ON THROUGH THE TIMES FROM THE 1st TIME YOU HEARD IT!YOU CAN HEAR IT! im listnin to the cold jordan the day before easter like B.marley said "who feels it knows it lord!"thank you for shows like these to B heard through the ages stay golden!ya all
2 young 2 know -
I think that I just struck Grateful gold on the archive...
the acoustic stuff is a very nice change of pace for me. It's like discovering a hidden room in your house that you didn't know about before.. i wish i could think of a better analogy but my brain's a little hazy at the moment.
anyway, I can listen to this for hours.
5 stars not just for the novelty of the show, not just for the quality of the recording, but because this is some GREAT STFF coming from our favorite band!
A wonderful 7 disc Gd & NRPS Grab the Shorten files You know what to Do!!! Thank you Thank you Thank You...And if its true what they say ( I am waiting for mine in the mail right now)They better leave up the NRPS stuff...What a find !!!Just proves that it really pays to read and LOOK CLOSELY at all of the reviews
Subject: New riders 5/15/1970
This show was the first time i saw the Cryptical/Other one performed. it changed my life. Please keep New Riders segment. As a side note of interest they say that they were pumping laughing gas into the audience from under Jerry's Pedal steel!
Subject: Hey Rhino...
Why did the chicken cross the road?
BECAUSE HE WAS TRYIN' TO GET AWAY FROM YOU!
I hope they at least include an uncut Ballad of Casey Jones...
This has just been made a Road Trips! Somebody PLEASE don't let them take the New Rider's part of the show off! There has got to be a way to save it!
Subject: Good Ole Gratefuld Dead
Sitting in the office wishing I could go back in time. Great Show! Thanks for all the great music. Long live the legacy of the Dead.
Subject: Fun listen but definitely suffers from recording issues - Also, not a top performance overall either
Definitely fun to listen to for historical purposes. I gave it a 4 because of the reasons listed in the title.
I thought it was funny as hell hearing the amplifier sounds. Someone must have been kicking the amps or dropping them for them to make that sound. :D
BTW, this is my birthday as well (except in 1974!)...
Subject: time to clear something up here....
for those reviewers below who seem so amazed by the number of songs played, confused about the setlist, etc. - this is not the "late show" as indicated, it's the early show AND late show from this date combined. That's why you see two acoustic sets and two New Riders sets as well as the electric stuff. This is awesome Grateful Dead, for sure, but it was not played all at once....two different shows played on the same date.
Subject: On the day that I was born......
It just occured to me to search my birthdate and see if the BAND played.... Well yep they did. Of course, coming of age in the 80s, I am partial to sound of the band in that era, but this is really sweet sounding... Will burn this just for posterity, that it sounds great too. Man 61 songs.... they must have played till the break of dawn.

Fantastica show. You can download the shn's above in the zip package. Get it while it's hot.

Subject: Worth millions, but thankfully free.
This is truth, not spewed but offered gently with persistence. It is basic and feel-good, and I'm sure that even the casual listener could appreciate the songs and the message. It takes you away to another simpler time, a fantastic era with women and wine and all merry and no-pain. I do not know for sure whether or not that era has existed, or can exist, but for a few hours or days at a time.
Simplicity is fundamental in all art forms...
pigpen is epic.
Subject: how to download streaming
Folks, this is easy. Un-hide your temporary internet files folder (from My Computer, select C: drive, then go to Tools, Folder Options, select "View" tab, make sure "show hidden files and folders" is selected, and click "apply to all folders"), and then just stream the audio. Each audio file shows up as a separate MP3 file in your (C:\documents and settings\[your user name]\Local settings\temporary internet files folder. THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR XP, NOT VISTA. From there you just drag and drop them out to a new folder on your desktop. Then, burn away. As far as this show is concerned, I had an old cassette copy of just a fraction of this show, and it was always one of my favorites. Can't wait to hear the whole thing. ENJOY!
Subject: thank you deadicated76!!!!!

Subject: This Might Help Y'all
start streaming the cut you want. click on the stop button to stop playback right click the cut select download this song. You have to do it one song at A time BUT for this show it is definitely worth it!!!

Peace and Love
just an absolutely phenomenal marathon performance.
can anyone tell me the dead lineup for the acoustic sets? see, i hear pigpen at times, bobby, jerry, and one drummer, and sometimes someone on a wood block. is phil playing? who's playing drums?
also, if it turns out phil is indeed playing then i'd have to reduce my rating since i can't hear him at all.
thanks for any info, and thanks archive for a wonderful site.

This is for my dollar the best show to listin to from 1970 this is it. acoustic, electric, pig, the new riders this show is huge and "henrey" is dedicated to you if your a dope smuggler so listen to this show. GREAT SAWMILL (not merl haggerd)
Subject: The Best Ever...very well could be
Both these shows are Epic! Quintessential Dead. Easily compares with the highly regarded Barton Hall show of 77', but I feel this is far better. I wasn't the biggest fan of Ronny Pigpen before I heard this. But he's actually not drunk or to screwed up to play, and you can actually hear his organ and vocals clearly. The Rub was hot and Katie Mae was beautiful. I'm now a new fan of Pigpen (at least for this show). The set list is amazing and the NRPS are spot on and sweet. Just the acoustic sets (from both shows and bands) alone are priceless. The best Other One I've heard, and you can't find a Lovelight that beats this one. This was truly a magical event and I wish I could've been there. I'd still be high from this show 35 years later. Thank you so much for making this available, the rarest of gems for everyone to enjoy. ANYONE having anything to do with making this show available, if you are ever in Los Angeles please look me up, dinner and tokes are on me! The least I can do for such a wonderful treat for my soul.
Thank you again brothers, be well and enjoy!
Subject: WOW, long set
This has got to be the longest set I've ever seen.
Very well played, and very great recordings. This really is some of the Dead's best playing, and is definitely an A+ show.
Subject: for the . . . ahhhh . . .
"i don't know what it is . . . just eat it."
that would have been one long strange night if you'd been holding tix for both shows.
coupled with 9-20-70, this is bliss.
like doubledose says, it's an all-day commitment.
for the faithful . . . indeed.
Subject: A Great Show--One Question
This show is incredible, most especially do I love the acoustic sets. But I can only play it on my computer? Is there anyone who has this show, or can anyone suggest a way I can listen to this in stereo? I'd be most, most appreciative!
capn doubledose -
Subject: This is an all day listen there is a ton of great stuff here.
I literally started to listen to this at 9AM and this is handsdown the longest in this site I have heard - filled with great stuff.
*** I dont know what set list this is but this show really does not get going until the f*cking fierce OTHER ONE - Jer basically says game on...
*** Killer dark star listen to the crowd clapping
let there be songs to fill the air

Subject: loud vocals
Wow, great setlist. Aside from the "classics", you get nice renditions of Cold Jordan, a rare Attics, and som other gems. Setlist is 5 stars.
A pretty good NRPS set. I'm no expert, though I do like their music. This seems like a pretty good sample of their 70's repertoire. Love Bobby "Ace" Weir sitting in on Mama Tried, Sawmill, MAMU.
Some audio problems in the early set. Also the vocals seem to be turned up way to loud. Did this get better throughout listenning to the whole show? Or did I just get used to it. Anyway - I would give 3 stars for sound but given the times might "curve" it up to 4.
Bottom Line: Definitely worth the download!
Subject: Show 4 : Sound 3.5
This is a well-recorded soundboard with a nice mix and minimal hiss, and no one will have a problem with the sound quality. My 3.5 sound rating is in the context of all the other years too. Within 1970 only, it's closer to a 5. As it says in the notes, the early acoustic set is not the splitter-generated two-channel mono mix, this is exactly what is on the tapes...meaning the right channel is sometimes 'not there'. It fades in and out until coming on strong during 'Candyman', which is fairly late in the set. I'd rather have what is on the tapes than a 'false' mix, but I'll probably hang on to the previously circulated copy of the early acoustic set just in case. This is one monster of a show and it must have been an incredible experience for the audience and the participants alike. David Lemieux has said that this show IS in the vault and will come out 'someday'. The existence of the show in the vault was confirmed by the inclusion of 'Easy Wind' as a bonus track on the recent re-master of 'Workingman's Dead'. I hope that multi-tracks exist and not just the two-tracks, as that should allow for rectification of the mix problem in the early acoustic set. Download this show and give it a listen, it may be THE prime example of what the Dead were trying to accomplish in 1970. There may be hotter versions of certain songs from other shows, but if I had to pick a show from 1970, this is the one.

...brittle soup! So says Pigpen before the boys launch into "Attics" on this sweet upgrade. A classic show, of course, but now you can hear every nuance and texture of the music to the Nth degree. Paradise waits...
