Took me a few days but at the end of the St. Louis show they just released from 12/10/71. This is one of those shows where they were consistently very good from front to back, but there’s not a moment where you think you are hearing the best version of any particular song - but absolutely nothing drags - they were on the whole show. Plus I am always happy to hear them play in that ‘70-‘73 timeframe. The perfect mix of them playing Americans, blues, and jazz all together seamlessly.

I've got the box set en route! Looking forward to it -- '71-'73 is the sweet spot!

It’s very good from listening on Spotify, but my favorite of theirs is Ladies and Gentlemen…the Grateful Dead, which is from the Fillmore East in I believe 1971.

Fillmore West '69 is phenomenal. Do not hesitate.

From one jazz lover to another I think a '69 "Dark Star" is going to be right up your alley
