I woke the day 45 years ago (i wish), felt your side of bed (wished even harder), the covers were still warm. I was dreaming it was raining in Arizona. Pure fantasy right?
Not true, I was cold in Maine in the attic, but I was four days past my first true Trip.
So I was heading towards the bus, which would stop in Boston in exactly 23 months.
Meanwhile, the Dead were amidst Maybe The Best Tour Ever, starting with The Seven http://www.gratefulseconds.com/2016/08/october-1973-seven.html and making the Magic Winterland shows in November and the Delightful December in Boston, Ohio, ending up with Florida. Tempe is not considered in the top-tier of these shows but I would gladly trade many of my tourdates for this Rainy Arizona Afternoon.
A typically wonderful 14 sing set-one ends with a typically wonderful Playing In The Band. You can have the 320s heres.
And although the second set play have been shortened to the weather, it is a wonderful Eyes of the World>Weather Report Suite that starts the set.
Archive's Chris U says the band woke up on the right set of the bed here. Give it a listen. Less known is not lesser quality
