Looks like this old standby hasn't been vined in a while, R.I.P. 2009, so here's a retread

SOUND EXCELLENT, BUT BE AWARE THAT THIS IS NOT A PERFECT TAPE, THERE ARE SOME EDITING ARTIFACTS, READ RAP BELOW. I was hesitant to vine this at first, because of the few rough patches, but had such a good time hearing it that it seemed a shame to hide it under a bushel. It is a fun show. This is 1973, New Year's Eve, a mad, sprawling, never-ending, stoned to the bone show, complete with an invasion of San Francisco musicians throwing the ABB's normally super tight arrangement out the window, (after a couple of good solid sets by the ABB), and a horde of unruly wasted fans tearing it up, lighting fireworks in the dense -packed crowd, and who knows what else. Be glad you can enjoy this in the comfort of your home, without some blasted freak boogying in your face, spilling bongwater on your poncho or setting your girlfriend's hair on fire while lighting a brick of firecrackers.

This is an upgrade compared to an older pre FM copy I've had for years, flawed bits spliced over from an FM master reel. (See lineage rap below.) Only one bad hiss/pop, on the Bill Graham intro of the band, then a splice change in sound at the start of Elizabeth Reed. Then there's a splice somewhere in Mt. Jam. But zero noise or hash during the music, nice.

Fantastic sound otherwise. This is one of my favorite ABB shows. Quite a journey when Jerry Garcia and Boz Scaggs hit the stage for the second half. The pearl of this show is an 11.5 minute jam with Garcia and Kreutzman on an instrumental version of Whipping Post. Really nice. I call it "Tripping Post." The whole thing is an epic 4+ hours, plenty time for the worst of whatever it is you got ahold of to wear off.

Have fun!


Here's some info that was attached to this version:

"Here's the deal... There are multiple versions of this 12/31/73 show in circulation. The most common (and the only one that I've seen) is supposed to be from the Pre FM reels (which were most likely damaged, keep reading). On the heavily circulated version there were numerous flaws, most were either digital noise or clipping. A new transfer was just done from a Reel To Reel FM Master. This new FM master did not have any of the flaws that were present on the common "Pre FM" version, but FM Master was of slightly lesser quality.

The solution? Small portions of the new FM master were spliced into the higher quality version when there was digital noise, clipping, etc. Those defects have now been eliminated. The splicing was done well, at most points it's unnoticeable, but there were a couple of splices that didn't line up perfectly, one of those would be the splice that provides the intro to Liz Reed. Either way, this show sounds much better than it did before, and it's the best source I know of to be in circulation."

sorry about that , yes there are some cuts, the splicing I pointed out in my original post. I guess it is a trade-off, better overall sound for a couple splices, which aren't that severe and don't trash the flow too bad. The New Year's countdown cuts in, and there is lots of between song time cut. There was a sh*tload of hanging around and tuning at this show, same as a lot of Allman / Dead shows at that time, very loose stoned affairs.

I've listened to this carefully and the actual music performance is intact , with none of the noise and artifacts of the pre FM, which had no patches, so it flowed better. I agree the splices can be distracting, but I prefer this recording to my original pre-spliced version for sure, I couldn't tolerate the noise, so I had pretty much given up on it. This version makes for a good listen, if a little bumpy in a few places. I suppose couple of cuts is a bit of a pain in the *ss, but you're not missin much, this monster is over 4 hours long as it is!

Although this is better, I gotta grant that the Holy Grail of Cow Palace 73 shows has yet to be circulated. The FM broadcast on Wolfgang's Vault is seamless, with plenty of obnoxious FM announcer banter, but does not have near as good of a signal.

With all that said, warts and all this is actually one of the better sounding early 70's shows you're gonna find. I flat out can't stand crummy sound, won't listen to it even if it's the best Duane or Jimi ever played, I just can't take it... wouldn't have vined this if it wasn't an enjoyable tape, with a solid signal to noise ratio.

If someone out there can cough up a better version, please do so. I'll happily sign up and stop this vine. This is the best sounding Cow Palace I've heard, and one of the best quality ABB shows I've heard from that time.
