    my favorite track from europe 72

  9. wtmuller1 says:

    Of everything in my collection, I still think this is my favorite. Hard to believe it's been 15 years, I still miss Jerry, there's been some imitators that are good, but none like the Master himself.

  10. Walkingshadow1 says:

    I've heard 10 or 20 versions of "I Know You Rider." A lot of variability in how they performed this song, but this one is without doubt the best. Just superb transitions and phrasing. The piano contribution from Godcheaux is just outstanding, and is one of the main things that makes this version so good. He doesn't try to hog the show, he understands his role perfectly, and just contributes very thoughtfully to the overall effort. Also the harmony and Garcia's guitar work make this a classic.

    The dead at their absolute best !!

  15. LakewooodWestPark says:

    The Dead will never die. Searingly good stuff here.
    I've been listening to this for 30 plus years (though not continuously)
    and it's fresh and poignant every time I let it surge though my synapses.
    The bridge between the two songs on Europe '72 is stellar.

  17. MrGd63 says:

  19. jimmorrisonmylove says:

    I love all versions of china cat ugh they're all soooo great I LOVE THEM SO FREAKIN MUCH

  20. terrryc says:

    Is it rock? Is it Jazz? Who cares...it's the Dead at their best....

  21. LakewooodWestPark says:

    Oh yes!!!!! There's a synergy here that transcends the music but is nonetheless embedded in it.

  22. VerbositySquared says:

    Nothing but love for the boys, for ever and ever, but just to clarify: the reason the Europe '72 album has the tightest arrangements ever (especially for the time) is that they did a lot of post-production on this album; it's almost more of a studio album than live. One of the most unintentionally innovative things about the Dead's sound system that became the Wall of Sound the next year is it actually kept the channels separate enough to be able to remix later if you wanted to.
