Tonight, Dark Star Orchestra had the longest spot of Jam in the Dam because they were about to perform the Grateful Dead show played in Amsterdam during the famous Europe 72 tour : a 4 hours, 30+ songs orgy !

I was front row again with Stephen for the first set and I enjoyed every minute of it. Evey band member knows his job and I've been very impressed by the female singer.

The only drawback was that I found the sound too loud. Maybe I was a little tired after 3 days but it was too much for me.

Funny note : the bass player had a Guitar Hero II bracelet on the right arm.

Setlist :
5/10/72 Concertgebouw Amsterdam Netherlands

Set One :
Me And My Uncle
Mr. Charlie
China Cat Sunflower > 
I Know You Rider
Black Throated Wind
Next Time You See Me
El Paso
He's Gone
Chinatown Shuffle

Big Railroad Blues
Jack Straw
Tennessee Jed
Big Boss Man
Greatest Story Ever Told
Casey Jones


So during the set break, I transfered to the balcony, in the back of the room.

Shortly before the band went back, the winners of the costum contest (Green was the theme of the night) were brought on stage to receive their prize. Then DSO sung Happy Birthday to their stage manager who also propose his fiance the night before.


Over there, I could stay sitted while having a good view of the stage and the sound was much better. Perfect for the furious second set combo opener. That whole jam was really tripping !

Setlist :

But mid-set, I needed to dance and decided to hop off to see what's up with Lotus in the Max Hall...
