Cincinnati: Weird and Wild December 4 1973 Show


I have never seen this reported but this show may have replaced a cancelled show from June 15, 1973 (which is a weird date, 5 days after the June 10 show in DC and 7 days before the Vancouver show on 6-22).




I don't know about you Jim from Cincinnati but it sure looks like it was worth the wait to me. Most of this show fits on Disc 10, the Bonus Disc, in the Winterland 1973 Box Set.  A 23 Minute 12/73 Eyes!

According to Jim, "The band played like robots this night", but they must have been soul crushing December 1973 robots since you get an amazing compact version of a show during the bands peak.
