Dick's Picks 08

5/2/1970 Harpur College, Binghamton, NY


.......The concert was the finest in Harpur history ... the finest the Dead have ever given on the East Coast to my knowledge. And the finest concert I've ever seen - and that includes a three hour thing in Tompkins Square by the Blues Project, Janis and Big Brother's finest moment at the Fillmore East and also all of Woodstock...........

..........That's It For The Other One, the long first cut on the second album, endless and non-ending and phenomenal. Garcia's guitar is cosmic. Then a song I don't know. Someone told me it was the Train Song. People flopping on top of themselves. Garcia throws in a Dark Star riff I think. Sit down, people scream. Good Lovin' or maybe it was Dancing in the Streets. Pipes and Joints flow to the music. IT'S IN THE MUSIC

"The best ever. It’s famous for a reason. This Good Lovin might be my favorite jam ever. Viola. If you know you know. Dancin, cryptical. Great acoustic first set. Every song is played so well. "
