May 15th, 1970 - Fillmore East

Fillmore East
New York, NY
May 15th, 1970

This show is a four set monster, with an acoustic and electric set for both the early and late shows, add two sets of 'The New Riders of the Purple Sage' and this was one of those legendary nights which lasted till dawn. Another great example of the Dead hitting some roadblocks by hecklers calling out for 60s classics during their acoustic set but the Dead persevere with an amazing acoustic 'I Know You Rider' and rare Pigpen classic 'The Rub' in the early acoustic set and then delivering a mesmerizing 'Attics of my Life' before going into a 'Saint Stephen>The Other One' jam in early electric set to the applause of the impatient crowd. I won't spoil the rest of the show but I'll end with, take an evening to yourself to enjoy this entire show in its fullest. You won't be disappointed.
