Thanksgiving Day Jam Session - 11/23/72

artandseek.net/2012/11/16/this-week-in-t...hanksgiving-day-jam/

On Nov. 23, 1972, an impromptu jam session took place at Austin’s Armadillo World Headquarters, featuring both local and national artists. Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead had performed the night before at Austin’s Municipal Auditorium. When Garcia mentioned that he’d like to someday play at the Armadillo, the club’s owner, Eddie Wilson, hastily arranged to have Garcia perform the following afternoon. Word quickly spread about the show, and when Garcia and band mate Phil Lesh took the stage, they were joined not only by Texas icon Doug Sahm, but also by Leon Russell and members of the 13th Floor Elevators, Shiva’s Headband and Greezy Wheels.

Jerry Garcia, Doug Sahm and the other musicians served up a Thanksgiving buffet of rock, country and blues that left the Armadillo audience quite grateful indeed.

Listening to the 78 show now. Love it 'cause this is from my early years (1st show night prior to DsP 4), might have even been at this one, those days kinda foggy. Really struck by the effects of allergies on Jer's voice. Those leaf mold spores suck. I'm feeling 'em now. I am thankful to be able to hear shows from those days.
Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!

Listening to this show today. That 11/22/72 show was in the "Today in GD history" thread I started yesterday.
I thought that show was nice, but not remarkable overall. Some real nice jams. But Keith was still finding
his way. And Pigpen was still home recovering.

This show (11/23/78) starts off a bit rough. But I'm gonna check out the whole thing.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.
