Soundboard of this date in 1974 is available for download HERE and HERE. This is probably the best show to that falls in the Days Between. It's close to four hours of Grateful Dead music.
Bobby makes a joke after the "Bertha" about the news reporting that there is a zero chance of rain, but that it wasn't the only news of the day. That is because the Congress had established a case to impeach President Nixon. He would later resign from the office on August 9th, 1974.
The first set "Eyes" is a thing of beauty. At close to 20 minutes the band has fun exploring the upbeat rhythm of the song. The song has no end and yet the band finds one here. Usually it ends in crashing symbols and guitars but here it just kind of fades out. So Bobby can yet again yell at some idiots who are climbing a fence.
The "Playin'" is out of this realm. The band stretches the song until as they metamorphosize into Miles Davis "Bitches Brew." Keith plays the electric piano which is what gives the jam this sound. Jerry with his fearless leads makes him the perfect conductor. As the band stretches out the song, it's actually Bobby that starts the "Scarlet" progression, and the song comes storming out of the blue. Gently the band fades back into electric "Playin'." This "Playin'" "Scarlet" "Playin'" was used as filler on Dicks Pick's 31, but it is hard a filler, it's straight heat.
