Blair Jackson's review: ****½
copyright: www.blairjackson.comm
A potent mixture of mature, fabulously played renditions of some of the Anthem material ("That's It for the Other One" and "New Potato Caboose") and early versions of four of the songs from Live Dead "Dark Star," "St. Stephen," "The Eleven" and "Lovelight." "Dark Star" isn't the monster it would become just a few months later, but "The Eleven" is particularly inspired, possibly even topping the epic Live Dead version. Pigpen struts his stuff on fine versions of "Good Mornin' Little Schoolgirl" (not truncated a la the first album) and "Lovelight." The "Morning Dew" encore gets cut when the police pull the plug on the concert! Highly recommended!
