Busted Down In New Orleans; Delayed in St Louis 1970-02-02, Dead Deliver Dave's Pick 6


Dave's Picks 6 gave us this wonderful February 2, 1970 show, the first of 8 the band would play at The Fox in St Louis between 1970 and 1972, which followed the four night stand at the Warehouse House in New Orleans from January 29 to February 1 and the five night stand in Honolulu  from January 22 to January 26. (Two nights later would be a five night stand at the Fillmore West in SF, then NYC, then Texas, dudes you need Sam Cutler fast)

As par the course during the crazy 1970 schedule, the band's crew had to make a 677 mile trek from The Warehouse to the Fox and the band was only one night removed from Busted Down in New Orleans evening of January 31.  So it looks like everyone drove and the band and equipment arrived at 7pm and went on at 10:15pm according to the awesome St Louis Post-Dispatch.  Despite all these hurdles, travel, arrests and crazy schedule, the band go into an "epic" version of Dark Star according to All Music. I love finding treasure like the Post-Dispatch review after 46 years.
