This is an absolutely phenomenal show and the first night of the Dead's incredible Europe '72 tour. The Truckin'> Drums> Other One> El Paso> Other One> Wharf Rat is definitely the crux of the evening, but the entire show is special. The boys were clearly trying to prove something on the first night of the tour, and prove they did. Unfortunately, the two audience recordings on Archive - of which this is one - are quite rough because the sound is so horrid. Fortunately, the Dead have released a crisp soundboard from the night.
