So, I'm trying 2 find the craziest, weirdest, trippiest, epic Dark Star the boys ever played. If you guys want, we could make this a contest. I'm gonna start out with
4/24/72- Rheinhalle, Dusseldorf, West Germany
Dark Star>Me & My Uncle> Dark Star>Wharf Rat>Sugar Mag
This one blows my mind. Starts off slow and picks up, waiting about a good 10 minutes till Jerry sings the first verse, "Dark Star crashes...", and continues on in one of the most out-there jam I've ever heard any band play ever, and Jerry is just so ON it this night, as he was most nights that year, shit... that decade. Then the most random sandwich ever where they suddenly hold a particular rhythm, and maintain it, and suddenly you hear Bobby start singin' the most out -of-leftfield song ever, and then once the song ends, they're quickly back to the sweet ether of Dark Star and continue into the most ambient space ever, and into a classic, classic Dead show staple...
