The Night Before: Dick Could Have Picked This One First Too, Tampa, December 18, 1973

Any show that starts with Jed and ends with
Jack Straw 
China Cat Sunflower ->
Jam ->
I Know You Rider 

Set 2

The Promised Land ->
Greatest Story Ever Told 
Row Jimmy 
Weather Report Suite Prelude ->
Weather Report Suite Part ->
Let It Grow ->
Dark Star ->
Drums ->
Eyes Of The World ->
Wharf Rat ->
Sugar Magnolia 

Uncle John's Band

could be a Dick's Picks. Too bad this show took place exactly one night before Dick's Picks Volume 1 in the same exact venue in Tampa, Florida.  Boy, the band was on fire in December 1973. And boy, Jerry looks like a kid in the pages of The Tampa Times. Grab the show here
As typical in multi night runs, the first show is reviewed and not the next night aka DP1.  
This show is so important to the canon that John R. Dwork reviewed it (see below)
