If you are a fan of eraly, ‘Primal’ Dead, don’t pass this boot by! The recording is crystal clear and the performance is absolutely riveting!

From the starting line, the band drops into deep space, intricately working through what was developing into the famous Live/Dead sequence. Unfortunately, this recording is incomplete; ‘Death’ is very badly cut, and a real shame too out of an otherwise perfect tape. The ‘That’s It’ suite that follows is solid. What’s next really redeems this set, though. Pigpen and company drive “Alligator->Caution” into truly molten territory for the home stretch. Very fine performance!

Hope you enjoy!
