___________________________________________

Bertha, by the time they get the kinks out of the SBD, Jerry is ready to offer up his solo, nails it.
Big River is fun, and the early placement coming on the heels of Bertha equals early energy injection!
HC Sunshine the jam session is pretty cool, Bob is particularly interesting behind Jerry as they start nearing the verse. There is only a short jam out of the song, but overall enjoyable.
BTW is kind of disjointed. They put it together a little more at the end.
TLEO, they keep it back together with a nice TLEO, though I can barely hear Billy or Phil.
Mexicali, Bobby loves a chance to play his polka.
TN Jed is cut!
LLR is cut!
Deal is cut!
El Paso
comes in on a cut… SQ is lower also.
Row Jimmy also comes in on a cut, and kind of plods along.
PITB starts into the jam nice and slowly, stays mellow and cool for some minutes. Things start picking up around the 8 minute mark, but I really don’t dig Keith’s playing here, again, somewhat disjointed. It starts flowing a little better at around 9:30 when Keith steps back, and they head into a spacey jam. It never really peaks my interest… the reprise has decent energy.

China>Rider to open the second is a mediocre version, which at this point is disappointing.
MAMU is higher octane, I don’t think it could be otherwise. This is a good call to get the boys ready for the meat sequence.
Dark Star Jam>MLB>Dark Star>Eyes>Stella
Dark Star
comes in slowly, and within 5 minutes they head into an MLB Jam before the verse, which was a nice touch. It lasts for two minute before they delve back into the star in an exploratory fashion. 6 minutes into the second DS segment, the verse comes, the pace having picked up a bit leading up to it. After the verse it goes into serious, creepy space. Billy has taken a break it appears. Ironically, this is the most exciting part of this Dark Star… they are heading into Tiger, and there’s a cut! No! Argh, it gets really weird and enjoyable after this, if the Tiger occurred, I can’t be sure… anyhow, it’s a pretty cool part of the sequence… which then dives into the Eyes of the World. The Eyes has a great tempo and the jam segments are spot on. Actually one of the better Eyes of the era, achieving X factor while exploring new turns, A+. This is followed up by Stella featuring an exceptional climax.
WRS>LIG> GDTRFB>OMSN
Beautiful is a great adjective to describe the opening notes of WRS. I will accuse Bobby of overzealous singing during “Part 1”. LIG is very energetic, with Keith knowing his place and staying in it well, supporting cast. Bobby plays well during the jams, but of course Garcia steals the show. As the blazing LIG dies out, GDTRFB steps right on in. Solid efforts from Jerome and Keith shine through.

Encore: UJB is a nice touch to finish off a great 2nd set, though cut.
___________________________________________

Performance Summary
The first set is decent, but the massive missing block is upsetting. The BTW really steps in it, unfortunately. The second set, after a lackluster C>R, is pretty much gold.

Sound Quality
B, where it isn’t cut, the show sounds pretty good though I can barely hear Phil, and hear Billy only slightly better in the first set. Billy much more audible in the second, Phil, not… maybe he was just having an off night?

I do recall this being a really nice 2nd Set.

Yeah, this is one of those shows... the type that was common through all eras.
The tale of two sets.
Sometimes, money... but to make it to the Top 100 Points of Light or 30 Piece of Gold, not going to cut the mustard.

That just means, if we still were collecting tapes, spend the money on the 1st or 2nd tape...
One thing that strikes me, in this period, usually the 2nd set is the bet, but in the Brent & Vin era, you can't be sure of that, the 1st set may be better...
In general my findings thus far is that Oct 73 depends more on bells and whistles to score than overall playing..
What a difference a month makes! (Or show for that matter!)
