Me too -- big time!
In addition to seeing all these pics for the first time, it's fun to speculate as to the when/where -- I am intrigued by the photo Gaston posted at 1:08 today of the outdoor gig w/Gregg & Dickey in it -- man what a photo. If I didn't know any better I might guess 7/28/73, by the way the crowd stretches away in the background, also the shirt Dickey's wearing is similar to the only other photo I've seen of the ABB at Watkins Glen, the well-known one of the band playing that was published in the Dreams booklet & several other publications.
It totally amazes me at how little has ever been written or photographed of Watkins Glen -- a magical weekend that slipped off into oblivion -- but, as Kirk West once said about 6/26/71 -- "it's all up here, it's all up here!" tapping his finger on his head.
Sorry, going off on a tangent as usual --
really enjoying these great photos.

Stephen,
I believe the first picture is from late 1972. In 1973 Dickey's hair is shorter.
I don't know if it's real, but the second picture could be from the Watkins Glen show. The original name of the pic is "db730727". That's a day before the show. There's a recording out there of the soundcheck...

Here's a picture of August 30, 1972...

Fuckin' A bro -- you may have uncovered a gem -- IIRC the Brothers were the first to do the soundcheck, they came on in the afternoon, as this photo would indicate, and played RMan, OWOut & IMOER -- then The Band came out & played a few songs, then the Dead played one of their seminal all time gigs -- played for the next several hours, past nightfall. Part of the Dead's soundcheck is on their So Many Roads box set of a few years ago.
Hopefully Mark Smith will take a look at this, he was there & knows a lot about that weekend.

Take a look at this...

This is the Watkins Glen stage:



Now, look at this:


I think this picture is from the Summer Jam.

And now, the Dickey Betts pic:


Look closely to Jaimoe's t-shirt, I'm sure it's the same of the second pic, and Dickey's shirt too.
