Editorial Reviews

Deadheads rank this 4/24/72 concert at the Rheinhalle in Dusseldorf, Germany among the band's very best, here reproduced straight from the original 16-track analog tapes. A *44-minute* version of Dark Star (with a Me and My Uncle interregnum) is the clear highlight, but the second-ever live rendition of He's Gone ranks up there, too. Also here are two bonus tracks from the Dead's 5/24/72 show in London, featuring the final version of Turn on Your Lovelight sung by Pigpen. Intense!

4.0 out of 5 stars More of (Not) The Same September 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Other Amazon reviewers have, IMHO, done a great job. So I'll just make one point: The three Europe 72 Tour releases I've got (a) Hundred Year Hall, (b) Europe 72 and (c) Rockin the Rhein are each unique in subtle-yet-important ways. This was one of the band's peak periods. And each show displays facets of the band's collective energy and greatness. HYH hits harder edges, higher peaks and raucous raves. Europe 72 opens new channels into the band's mountain music references and influences. And I find RTR to chug, rock and boogaloo with a gutbucket funkiness that bears the stamp of Pigpen's blues power. From other reviews and my own sense of the music on each release, I'd say HYH was a Bobby night, E72 was more of a Jerry night and RTR (maybe) had Ron McKernan feeling all right. I could be mistaken; and this kind of review is very, very subjective. But ... being someone who owns all three of these multi-disc sets, I honestly recommend owning and enjoying each in its own (love)light. Paz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pigpen's night March 8, 2006
By Riley
Format:Audio CD
I'm just starting to become a true fan of Pigpen. Earlier, I just didn't get him and I would constantly skip forward to more of the GD extended jams. Lately, I've started to get what he was all about and what made him such an important part of the early dead shows. I'm glad I picked up this set.
It's Pigpen's night and we should all be happy for this nice memory. Pick it up.

Note: the rest of the band has some fine moments too!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Star is the highlight July 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a good show from the Europe '72 tour. Because it is mostly a complete show (albeit rearranged for the CD format) I find it in some ways more interesting than the overpolished (IMHO) Europe '72 release. The set list is excellent overall and the Dark Star -> Me and My Uncle -> Dark Star jam is a great, really trippy one. Not a bad release to pick up if you don't have too many from the early '70's.

All that said, I have to wonder how many more official live releases we need. With 30 Dick's Picks, nearly all three CDs or more, and I don't know how many other Vault and other official live releases, it's hard for me to view any of the newer official live releases as absolutely essential. There are a fair number of Dead addicts there who will buy anything newly released, in spite of their huge bootleg collections.

Don't get me wrong. This show is good. And with a great noise jam version of "Dark Star" and with Pigpen, it represents my favorite era of the Dead (anything from the Sixties through '73). But it has some low energy spots here and there. With so many other live releases it's hard to make a case this is "essential."

3 CD set of the well-documented Europe '72 tour- April 24, 1972 complete. Disc Three (Set Three) starts out with a 26 minute Dark Star for the ages, but then suddenly out of nowhere "Me And My Uncle" phones in for three minutes --then we are transported back to the center of the Universe for another 15 minute Dark Star coda. Almost 45 minutes of dark star then one of the best Wharf Rat renderings and the jam still isn't over...we end up at Sugar Magnolia.

And you still have disc one and two!

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd cd ROCKS April 21, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
First CD is typically great Dead stuff. 2nd CD is Pigpen Heaven. 3rd CD is AWSOME jams and great recording quality... can't speak HIGHly enough about CD 3. Spacey rockin' freaky DEAD. Sits so perfectly in your brain next to Europe '72 but it adds the jammin' aspect that we all NEED so bad from the DEAD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential to me! September 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have to reply to Muddy Moe: I only have Europe '72, and do not own many Dead live cds. So to me, it is great to have a whole show from Europe '72, with that same type of sound as Europe '72, but other versions and other songs, to compare to those tracks that have been so familiar to me for so long. Too many releases? Did you see too many shows? Each person has to make his own decision of when he has had enough, but it can only be a good thing to have as much Grateful Dead as possible on cd for us to choose from. This 3-cd set is just amazing to me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, sometimes great show November 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This full-length concert recording contains several high points and a few stretches where the program seems to sag. Disc 1 is a pleasant stew of "new" material and old standbys like "China Cat Sunflower" and "Truckin'." The audience is mildly rude when it is not inert. This disc seems to go on forever, with impatience reaching its apogee during Weir's rendition of "Me and Bobby McGee." Disc 2 kicks off with a great Pigpen showpiece, the Rascals' "Good Lovin'," which becomes unrecognizable when Pigpen and the band start to funk it up. Then a nice long "Casey Jones" closes the first set. The second set actually begins on Disc 3 with the monster "Dark Star" everyone has raved about here. Much spacier and also busier than the LIVE/DEAD version, it ventures way, way out and begins to break apart when suddenly we're listening to a brisk version of John Phillips' "Me and My Uncle." That song ends on a loud resounding chord, inciting another 15 or 20 minutes of gassy "Dark Star" stuff. The second "Dark Star" and the first don't really fuse together very well because the second grows out of the preceding song - it doesn't pick up where the first "Dark Star" left off. Then, into "Wharf Rat" and a solid "Sugar Magnolia" to close the second set. Sincere applause and cheers from the audience now! Back to Disc 2 for the third set, which seems gratuitous in light of the preceding hour of fireworks. Pleasant performances of "He's Gone" and "El Paso," then on to Disc 3 again for a solid medley of "Not Fade Away" & "Going Down the Road Feeling Bad" to end the show. (The encore, "One More Saturday Night," is glibly introduced as "our latest single" which Bob Weir asks the audience to go out and purchase. Read more ›
