Set 1
1: Promised, Sugaree, Greatest, China Cat> I Know You Rider, B. T. Wind, Tennessee Jed, El Paso, Loser, Jack Straw, FOTD, Playin, Casey Jones
Promised Land starts us off... with some rough SQ. I will spare everyone the whining about the lack of variety in songs played in Sep 72, as we can all see, some songs were just played every night, and that was all there was to it. The Promised Land is amped up and does its job opening the show well.
Sugaree follows up and is probably the best of the previous shows so far.
GSET once again impresses on me. Again nice wahwah from Jerome. Bobby's playing in support isn't half bad. Hard to hear Phil unfortunately. Donna really screws this one up though. Bobby screams his verses.
China>Rider is Jerry's next choice for the evening. A decent version with a quick transition favoring the Rider, which I don't mind, as I think it is the better of the two songs. It gets pretty funky in there. Some heavy clapping on the already bad AUD when we get to the verses... ug.
Time for some BTW... this one gets a bit sloppy, though that could just be made worse by the warbliness of the tape. After a rough couple of minutes though it cleans up (the playing, not the source). The climax is quite climatic.
Jed stomps in. It keeps a great tempo and is quite enjoyable, very twangy as it ought to be.
To keep us in the americana mode El Paso takes the reins. Bobby's voice is really out there, considering the gens of AUD would have to have effected the vocals... nice that we get that, this is a song where I don't mind him being out front.
Loser is pretty much always a winner with me. Keeps us in that workingman's type of mood also. This one though is nothing special.
Jack Straw. This time the mellow 72 intro works for me as there is sufficient wah in Jerome's notes. It picks up steam nicely for the first jam action.
FOTD comes out with a great pace. It is nice but leaves little time for solos this way. You really can't complain though about this FOTD! Rollicking and rolling.
And now for the jam I was just hoping for... PITB! Great timing. The tempo is wicked quick, and the static... I am kind of used to it now. Donna screams just to irritate me, and then back to the verse... the jamming is where its at of course. Intense Jerome... Bobby is barely audible... Keith & Jerry make up for it, though Jerry's sound is a bit muffled at times. I know if there was a better copy it wouldn't be... Jerry gets some whale call action going, which Bobby compliments with what I like to call Spider Web sounds, and then some of his own whale calls. Once again, the PITB delivers the 1st set goods.
Casey Jones gets hit with even more sound issues... placing the previously terrible recording in a barrel for a REALLY terrible recording. Good luck hearing anything other than clapping, Jerry's voice and his guitar's high notes. Lame.

Set 2
2: He's Gone> Me & My Uncle, Bird Song, Mexicali, Ramble On, Truckin> Drums> Other One> Sugar Magnolia E: Saturday Night
He's Gone starts us off in the 2nd. Mellow and proper. We hit some jam action at the end featuring some crisp high notes from Jeromus.
MAMU is not really a direct transition. There is also another patch here that is pretty bad, and goes in and out. Other than that, it is what you would expect.
Bird Song is called by some audience member... cool. More source swapping here also. Some higher heights seem to be reached here than in the previous shows. K-rock does some nice raining piano sounds after the final verse in the jammage. Nice stuff here.
Mexicali after Bsong... ok. Whatever the case, Jerry has some awesome noodles in the first solo!
Some guy calls Ramble on Rose for posterity's sake. That same clown really enjoys the solos so much that he hoots and howls for posterity also. Thanks guy... at least he had fun though, right?
Thank God for the

here at the meat of the show... Truckin' comes tearing in. The singing is fine enough. Then we hit the jam action, and it stays slow for a Truck Jam, but interesting enough, with some soul guitar thrown in by Jerry for good measure. Keith puts some great, funky effects on his piano, and Bobby is ultra-funky as well. The Nobody's Fault But Mine comes out a bit... but not fully. This is a slow and funky Truckin' Jam. Really impressive. This leads us into a couple of drums beats which are not accompanied with music.
PHIL BOMBS INTO TOO!!! Jerry comes in quick with some great echoing notes (ok, I am a technical music retard... is that a scale?). Anyhow, this one is also not the most energetic ever, but it sounds great, with some great teamwork between Bobby & Jerry at the 4 minute mark, perfectly accented by Keith. Another example of the unique stuff going on during this show. We then get to the verse and head into a still focused jam, with Jerry starting to throw in some weirdness, but Phil decides to take lead for a minute while Jerry wahwahs in the background, until the background becomes the foreground for a second, before receding again. Again, unique stuff here... no one is in a rush, perfect teamwork. The get into exploration nicely, and Keith again goes away from the traditional piano sound for this part. After some exploration, we slowly head into space, but very slowly, remaining somewhat on theme/exploratory for a bit... by the 12 minute mark I would say we are more spacey than exploratory, and Jerry starts the noodles as everyone else goes their own way. By 13 minutes... there is no trace of TOO remaining, totally in the black hole we go. Yet they keep it somewhat fast tempoed. Phil does some of his own whale calls in there. At about 19:30 we re-enter TOO theme, and Keith reverts back to the organ sound for a minute. That is a nice touch. The driven rhythm goes and heads into the 2nd verse (which was usually omitted during this period)... this is where the SBD cuts though... Doh!
Sugar Mags is cursed by not only returning to the crappy AUD, but also by source patches from other crappy AUDs... and massive clapping to cap it off.
After the song, there is announcement about Pigpen's absence...
And then yet another off-night OMSN for the encore.

Show Summary: Nice energy starts from the get go on this one, though Sugaree attempted to kill the momentum, it failed. By C>R its right on! After that they pretty much don't look back. It is a crying shame the SQ is so bad, because this show is really a great one. No huge jam sandwich, but definitely some unique moments scattered throughout, and some high energy stuff as well. I give the show itself an A-.


Source Summary: This is a C- or D+, there is massive static, as well as warbles. Phil in particular is very difficult to hear, and much of the drummer's sounds are just plain lost. Perhaps a lossless version would fix that? One can't help but think it would be soooo much better with better SQ to compliment the quality of the performance. But, at least we have what we have.
During the partial SBD (Trucking>>TOO), we are blessed with great SQ! A grade for this clip.

Bird Song is called by some audience member... cool. More source swapping here also. Some higher heights seem to be reached here than in the previous shows. Brent does some nice raining piano sounds after the final verse in the jammage. Nice stuff here.

Brent played on Birdsong?? Cool!!!!

9/16/72 is one of the best Dark Stars ever played, have you listened to it yet Koch? What exists as a soundboard for that show is unreasonably good.

Yes, I have listened to it before (part of why I decided to embark on this project actually), it is probably my 3rd fav (7/12/90 is my #1, and 11/11/73 #2)... it is so dark and creepy, this effect is lead by Keith I think.

I have been trying to convince duderino to listen to the damn thing for a month now, but he keeps blowing me off...

And, yes, it does have amazing SQ!

I was castigated for making the error of putting "Brent" in the place of "Keith"... I just wanted to offer my humblest of apologies for having the audacity to dare and make such a wanton error, I ensure you I had nothing but the sincerest of intentions when I set about writing the review and made an unbelievable oversite which I cannot particularly blame you all for if you are unable or unwilling to accept my fullest regrets as honest.

I have already lashed myself repeatedly with a cat o' nine tails for my transgression, and invite you all to take part in this mutilation of my decripit flesh which houses this error prone mind.

BTW - see the thread about the Sept 72 review - I did listen to that Darkstar from 9/16. a truly stupendous one. cool stuff going on that night.

Glad you took that one in... I don't give Dark Stars kudos that quic 7/12/90 and 11/11/73.
Everyone should hear the Dark Star from 9/16/72 if they haven't already, I guarantee success.
I selected it at the last LP, but was so blitzed I passed out...
