Dead of the Day: November 17, 1973

Pauley Pavilion, UCLA
Los Angeles, California

Me And My Uncle starts off the show, giving way to an exceptional Here Comes Sunshine. Jerry leads the way the entire time, but Keith and Bobby do such a wonderful job of sending out there own salvos. The Deal is also really good, with some powerful, streaking jams. A bit later is a real fun Race Is On as Donna provides some nice harmonies with Bobby and Keith makes some lovely runs, all with an upbeat, rollicking tempo. Of course, the China> Rider is also one of the highlights of the first half with a particularly heady transition. But, really, there are no duds here. And things get even finer in the second set with an unbelievable Playin’> Uncle John’s> Morning Dew> Uncle John’s> Playin’, a beautiful Stella, and an amazing Eyes, all before a steamy Sugar Mags takes it out. Words really do not do this baby justice; just put it in and give it all a solid listen yourself. 

The show was wisely picked to be an official release, as Dave's Picks 5.
