Anatomy Of A Dick's Picks: Pershing '73

Volume 28 of Dick's Picks is a masterpiece since it's from the magical year of 1973 (March 26 with some March 28 Salt Lake bonus). Let's take a look at the local POV from Nebraska on March 26.  There are some interesting tidbits, POVs, Monday Night in February in Nebraska, some weed, an interesting letter.  Here'e a nice recording of the show
The Promised Land ; Deal ; Mexicali Blues ; Loser ; Jack Straw ; Don't Ease Me In ; Box Of Rain ; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Looks Like Rain ; Loose Lucy ; Beer Barrel Polka ; Beat It On Down The Line ; Row Jimmy ; El Paso ; Big Railroad Blues ; Playing In The Band
Two They Love Each Other ; Big River ; Tennessee Jed ; Greatest Story Ever Told ; Dark Star [24:45] > Eyes Of The World [19:09] > Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo [7:14] ; Me And My Uncle [2:55] ; Not Fade Away [6:52] > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad [7:46] > Not Fade Away [2:53]

Dead Too "Gloomy" Near Halloween: Taft Auditorium, October 30, 1971 FM Broadcast

Back in Cincinnati,  the local paper thinks the band's music "tendered to lumber and bear down".   Guess it would have been better to run to Columbus for the next time, which gave us Dick's Picks 2.
I agree that this show was not one of the barn burners from Keith's first tour, but still fun to have.

New Rider's setlist was Workingman's Blues / Superman / Down In The Boondocks / Cecilia / Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (And Loud, Loud Music) / Dirty Business / Truck Drivin' Man / Lochinvar / Hello Mary Lou / The Weight / Glendale Train / Lodi / Last Lonely Eagle / Louisiana Lady / Willie And The Hand Jive  (thanks to
