Today in Grateful Dead History: September 28, 1972 – Stanley Theatre, Jersey City, NJ

stealieThe Grateful Dead Listening Guide has a perfect post describing this show and the Dead’s September ’72 output in general, so go there and read that.

I don’t have much more to add.  This show is a beast throughout, with the highlights being Playin’ in the Band and The Other One, as they often are in 1972.  I will note that The Other One is based around a lot of space – there are times where it goes very far out there and the distance becomes almost untenable.  But the band brings it back in by the end.

Seriously, just read the essay on the Grateful Dead Listening Guide and enjoy.  I’ll be more thorough tomorrow (today, since this is being posted late).
