October 30, 1972: The Grateful Dead Hit Detroit

Don't forget that Motor City as the Dead rolled into Detroit Town on the night before Halloween 1972.  This wasn't one of the more jam-invested shows of the era, but there is a nice long stand alone Truckin' that opens set two which you can hear now or Playing if you prefer.

Wonder if these early Detroit fans got off on the Dead more than say Jethro Tull or Heep?
