Best Show Ever, Take 2 June 24, 1970 Capitol

Despite shows as far afield as Oahu and France over the past month, the Grateful Dead were ready on June 24, 1970. Garcia played on 62 songs in a row?  No soundboard here, but the Lees make you not need one. A Capitol Show with a dizzy fizzy Attics Dark Star frenzy and some cool acoustic tunes and the New Riders. All yours. Attics acoustic early and Attics in middle of Dark Star electric later.
There's also an Attics in the middle of the Other One, however this may be mislabeled.



The Grateful Dead Listening Guide says about this show:

Interestingly, I would have never sent you home on day one with this tape. Not only do you need to have at least a slightly AUD-tuned ear to fully grok this tape (you don’t want to be bitching and moaning about this not being a soundboard while listening), you might also do well to have built up a tolerance/appreciation for great Dead moments before launching yourself into this one. Too large a dose of something could have adverse affects if taken too early. 6/24/70 peaks the meter above the red zone. You need to have some semblance of that upper range to best appreciate this gold medal show.

This Dark Star suite is something quite above and beyond your standard wonderful Dark Star. And this tape allows you to hear every pin drop, every flash pot go off (you’ll lose count), every ripple of deeply psychedelic energy fill the entire Cap Theatre to the rafters, washing the entire audience away into other dimensions.
