Good Times at Kezar, May 26, 1973

Even though the hippie was dead, San Francisco still rocked with the Grateful Dead in late Spring of 1973.  Oh, I loved outdoor shows in the sun, usually so long and not as intense as some of the East Coast or late night jam-infested performances. But sometimes three sets and very solid to great versions of all the tunes of the Dead such as it being a Betty Board a top-5 of all time China>Rider, top-3 Here Come Sunshine, wonderful Playing in thr Band, and a really good He's Gones>Truckin>Other One>Eyes>China Doll.  And lots of nice articles, a short super-8, etc etc  Have fun or listen more). i also added a little fun stuff from the shoet March 1975 KICKS show which is throughly covered at
