The Mid-1970's Era Grateful Dead Return-To-Florida! - following the'73 Fall Tour' Curtis Hixon Convention Center' Shows!!
Best-knows as -' Dick's Picks Volume 1'! And, with very fair consideration of both the The Era &' The-Times! And, though still a full-10-years before' Crockett & Tubbs' hit the scene - I'm sure Casey Jones! Was somewhere stage front & center in that " Jai-Alai " Dress Circle...
On Grateful Dead Summer Tour'74!!! Bring back some' Fond' Grateful Dead Memories for me! I mean - let's put it this way...A Decade-after - and almost close to 15-years after - I remember making a close to 2-hour Spur of the Moment! And, this drive was' specifically' to get into the Car - drive 2-hours into the City - just to' Hear' This-Show - On-Tape! As the simple-fact then was - both me & a Dead Tour Buddy could wait' no-longer' to hear the Analog Cassette Soundboard Tape! - of the 1974 Grateful Dead playing... - not really " Crazy " after-all - and even arguably " Necessary " - since as most all of us well-knew - it (to-date, back then) was the Only-Time' Ever' the Band played Chuck Berry's Let It Rock! And, as it ultimately later turned-out like, we all just thought it might - unless you caught J. Was going to be the Only-Time-Ever! You were going to hear The Dead Rock! And, that was indeed the case at hand.
And, that was (obviously) like a Youthful-Love! Thing to do - for any young Deadhead! But, what we really ended up finding-out on that Trip! - ended up being far-more important in the long run.
- had just delivered &' introduced' This! 6/23/74 Jai-Alai Fronton - Miami-Show!! Into our Lives & Minds... - Whether Report > China Doll!
- and, last but' not-least' - and really... - and Good Ol' Casey Jones! With, my point here (' easily') being that This! 6/23/74 Jai-Alai Fronton - Miami! " Show is a Grateful Dead 1974 Touring-Year " Top 10!!
- no matter how you cut-it! Garcia's 2nd to Last-Tour with Wolf!! - Weir headed towards some of the' Last-Days' of Gibson!! Pretty much in her' Prime! Carrying the Keys-load with consistent Style & Fashion!
Yet still - the supposed word circulated on the street around this time is that the Band is feeling just a bit-weathered here right-during this time & space? And, rightfully weathered in far more ways than just one. But, then again - This! On the Summer'74 Wall Of Sound!My own ears hear literally' little to no-wrong' here at all! The likes of Louisville (6/18)! - U of W Fuskie-U. 74 - " The Last One(s) "!!
The simple-fact is - this Dark Star Jam!! - is literally " 1974 " Live-Dead Improvisational-Playing!That can go head-to-head with-ease! - against many, and really' any' of the 1974 Touring-Year Moments-Of-Magic!!!
- it's pretty much just like - you know - to each, their own - or - pick your poison! Is brewing-up this fresh & special batch of Live-Dead-Magic! - stirring it up, and yeah... Even also handing out the cups!! As I have to say here - I always found it very interesting that when you get " deep-into " those sometimes sticky, yet so-awesome Dead-Circles (Touring, Tape Trading & such) - that 1974 can take a bit of a bad-rap (at times) for the 1st-Half of the 1970's Era - much like the similar (& sometimes exact-same-way) that 1978 can take a bit (more) of a bad-rap (& even more-often) for the 2nd-Half of the 1970's Era.It's just so all really-about' Zeroing-In! " on the nights and/or moments when it is " Truly-On. Because 1974 (and even 1978 - in comparison) are Both!! Dead-Moments - the ones we all Love! & might even also Live-For! - where it's' The-Music! " - and it's 100% Full-On & " All-Systems! I think there is a real-fair argument here that This!
Miami'74 Show at the Jai-Alai! " - 6/23/74 - is maybe even a realistic' contender' for a " Top 100 " Dead Shows' Award' from the " Entire 1970's Era!! And, heck - if you are to go & throw in the 6/22/74 Jai-Alai Fronton Magic-Moments!- and make it some sort of a " Match " head-to-head of " Full-Venue-Runs " against other " Full-Venue-Runs "? - then I think This-One! Is in there' with-ease' - and could maybe even head decently somewhere towards the 75-80 mark! Ahh yes - stuff that I've spent a' ton-of-time' comparing & thinking-about! And, as far as fun-facts go - here indeed is AnOther-One!
For you here - on the' Miami' & " Florida " Region thing here - where... Since the Band had a Nice! In the Good Ol' Sunshine-State! As now that 6/23/74 (& parts-of 6/22/74) have been' Let-Loose! - from a (' Pro-Released') " Miami and/or Florida " perspective...
(Tampa) kind of started it all Right! For all of you interested in the essential Florida-Dead! With I guess my question here now being - something like...
(12/12 & 12/13) -'80 Alligator Alley!! (11/29) - and, you betcha... Well, hey though - better not' push-my-luck' here sorry not.
Here - sorta like Casey Jones! 6/23/1974 - Jai-Alai - Miami!!! - has now in-deed been Set-Free!! And, just have to say too on the topic - kinda? I sure also wouldn't mind hearing a pro-release of 3/24/70!!
Live' at Pirate's World!!! - where you just Know!
Casey Jones was Rockin' his Backstage Sticky! - given to him by Jerry! - and actually stuck-on (' firmly') - by Pigpen!!
