Grateful Dead: Dave's Picks Volume 32,
The Spectrum, Philadelphia (3/24/73) - 3CD

As we close out the 2019 Dave Picks series, we deliver on our promise to give you the "whole thing" with the complete performance from The Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA, 3/24/73 and what a show it was! An upstanding "musical eulogy" to the recently departed Pigpen, the Grateful Dead conducted a potent study in contrasts on this bittersweet night. They found easy balance between tidy jams like "They Love Each Other," "Wave That Flag," "Playing In The Band," and introspective moments on "Stella Blue," "Sing Me Back Home," and a poignant "He's Gone." It was all laid down with a discipline and a polish unheard of in any of the truly exceptional shows that had come before it. Yes, you might say, they cleaned up nice to carry on the legacy as Pig would have wanted.
