Kicking off those Monday Blues

Well now, no one likes Monday's and when they come after a holiday break they are even more brutal.
One of the things that eases the Sunday Scaries out of my body is a little morning friendly Grateful Dead
(So happy I got Jerry and Nathan Explosion in the same post)

For 2010 I will try to post these every Monday when I have time, but The Archive is a treasure chest of fine tuned booty if you want to explore them yourselves.  This Monday's Show kicking around the old ear drums is from 11-14-1973 San Diego, California and I am sure it was warmer then and there then it is here and now.  Oh well at least the smoking China>Rider and the rollicking Truckin warm the heart.  The jam in Here Comes Sunshine is a must here, some of the bands best interwoven playing and, if anything, it ends too soon for my taste; they were hitting on all acid warped cylinders with this one.

A free flowing Other One that highlights Godchaux's piano runs and goes every which way is huge.  Eyes of the World from 1973 is always appreciated with it's bad ass breakdown, I particularly love Phil's playing here, the bass sounds so alive.  This is really one of the best 2nd sets of the bands career, give it a go.... 

Enjoy and I will try to post a different show each Monday that I can, Full Setlist is after the jump, Comments are always welcome.
