October 1973, The Seven


They had a new label and a new record album that might set you back $3.54. And for about five bucks, you might hear Dark Star, or Truckin>The Other One along with most of the LP.

Thanks to Dudley Dead over at https://archive.org/post/1062442/dudley-dead-inspired-october-1973-piece, I've being thinking more and more of 1973 (as well as the new SirMick releases , especially 11-1-73 :)

The year was 1973, the season was Fall, you were in the midwest and you were among the luckiest Grateful Dead fans ever.  Over these seven shows, you would see three Dark Stars, including the Dark Star>Morning Dew in show 1, two Playing sandwiches, Here Comes Sunshine and China>Riders, an Eyes>Stella blue encore, a couple of Truckin>The Other Ones>plus, and much more. I think you should take them all and listen to them over the next week.





There were seven shows that started perhaps the best 27 show tour in Grateful Dead.  The first of the 7 in Oklahoma City and the last of the 27 in Florida were both Dick's Picks.  We will get to December with November first. But for today, just see the Midwestwen world of the Dead at their peak ib October, 1973 as they start to experiment with Playing In The Band splits In Omaha and Indianapolis. following the once only in St Louis in 1972.  See http://gratefulseconds.blogspot.com/2015/10/complete-list-of-my-playing-in-band.html for full details.
