Today in Grateful Dead History, They Busted Out Some Songs that Became All Time Classics. AUD link to archive.org
Today back in 1970 at the Fillmore West, several songs were played for the first time that became standards and are known by even the most lackadaisical deadhead.
There is a decent audio copy on archive and it's listenable but what really makes this show special is the appearance of several new songs. At this show is the first ever "Truckin'", the first "Operator", as well as the first "Brokedown Palace" and the first "Ripple" for god's sake! To me, that makes this show historic. Add a smoking "It's a Man's Man' World to a hot "Dancing in the Streets" and a good "Other One" and you have a hot show. The AUD source is listenable, especially for the time. This was the time of the Acoustic, NRPS, Electric sets. In fact, I think it's a pretty good AUD tape.
So this is more historical than a smoking show but if you want to hear the first Ripple and Brokedown as well as Operator and Truckin' this is the show.
