So I know there are only a handful of shows from 75 to choose from, but what do guys think the best shows of 73 leading into 74 for. I was never a fan of 73 but I have always loved the year 74. What do you Guys think are good shows from 73 that are leading into or sound like a how from 1974? What I mean by that are shows from 73 that have that jazzy, free, and jamming in them.
Thanks for the input.

As a side note I love stuff with a long ass version on eyes of the world, with a ton of jamming.

Try this one on for size, my favorite show from 73. The reason being...D.S>El Paso>Eyes>Dew--Garcia's Birthday 8/1/73. Also the masterpiece which is 11/11/73. There are many more but these two are stand-outs IMO

Lots of 73 shows have those open, jazzy jams -- some of my favorites are 2/17 Chicago (just the jam, but a total monster), 3/24 Philly, 6/22 Vancouver, 10/29 St. Louis all have some long, extended unique jams that are pretty jazzy and heavy. 11/14, 11/17, and 11/21 have some very long, creative jam segments incorporating a bunch of song sequences that are pretty unique. 7/27 Watkins Glen has probably the longest standalone "jam" they ever did (almost 30 min, starting from a dead silence), and about as jazzy as it gets. But really any show with an Other One or a Dark Star probably has some of what you're looking for.

As for 75, all those shows are great, imho. There's only four, so get 'em all! 3/23 is probably as intense as they got in that "jazz fusion" vein, and check out the 6/17 Help>Slip for some super jazzy jamming -- the other two 75 shows are incredible, but less "jazzy" than I think you're talking about...

I think the best '73 stuff is in the Fall, the early year stuff is sloppier and lots of pointless Phil meandering although of course there are great shows. The horn stuff doesn't quite work for some reason. Post-horn '73, especially Donna free. I think pound for pound late '73 probably beats any comparable period in '74....

Yes, the Donna free period is the best of 72-75 I'd say!
