Busted Down On Bourbon Street
Live at the Warehouse - Jan 31st, 1970
New Orleans, LA
This is a great show and there are two reasons to appreciate it. One, is that this the show just after the infamous bust which inspired the classic "Trucking". Two, although the band had begun to play some acoustic material late 69, this is the first 'Acoustic Dead' show of 1970, possibly because Phil's busted amp, possibly not, but whatever spurned the 'Acoustic Dead', it is the hallmark of 1970 shows and reveals the band's urge to step out of a pure psychedelic sound and back into their folk roots.
