If I remember correctly this is the earliest show on the archive. 44 almost 45 years later this concert still sounds crisp. I have been digging this show for a while. The boys are all young with a full life in this club called The Grateful Dead ahead of them. Garcia's vocals shine as they do in most of the later 60's. Bobby's guitar playing is decent to say the least, yet he gets the job done. Pigpen is the real star here though.

Stand out track: Hey Little One Perhaps this is a song that isn't as popular as most of the setlist.

Also I strongly suggest Next Time You See Me and King Bee>Caution. This primal show might help put the Dead back in perspective for some of you....I know it helped me to find the way back.

I give this show 5 stealies.

I have listened to this, and other than its importance historically, this show does nothing for me.

I agree on many of the early dtaes, some of the Jams are funny to me though, it almost sounds like they were trying to be a Go-Go Band, sometimes I can picture chicks in mini-skirts dancing in cages off the sides of the stage

According to me mother (yes, I am of human spawned), who lived in SF as a 17 year old at the time, the two scenes were very compatible... and the style of music that would become the jam bands was really yet to be forged. They were doing it... the hippies in SF came from the beats, but down south, from the surfers (to some extent anyhow) as the scene grew. The bands that are now known as the jam bands of the 60s, well, in 66, they weren't really jamming much. Look at JA, they were the ones pretty much leading the charge to be honest, and in 66, they weren't really jamming out songs either.

LSD was just catching on, these were the shows that started getting people to tune in, etc... and their clothes changed with them. I mean, this show was an acid test, was it not?

Plus, the surfer scene was more in LA, too cold in SF for that type of gear a lot of the year.

Anyhow, surferism eventually gave way to hippiness... but they were never really incompatible.

And, for the record... I find the surfer style chick to be much sexier.

I've been going through my hard drives and listing to everything in order. There is a jam in particular that has come up time and again that is just fantastic. It is Good Morning Little School Girl > You Don't Love > Good Morning Little School Girl. There isn't any date or anthing that points to where it came from. The only information I got about it is that it came from the summer of 1966. It is really something different for the boys during this period.
