All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead, RFK Stadium, 6-09-1973 and 6-10-73 (SBD)

The Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band got together for two days at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. in 1973.  It was a huge event with around 80,000 people in attendance. 

  The show had opening acts Doug Sahm for the first day and Wet Willie for the second.  The Allman Brother closed the first day and the Grateful Dead closed the second.  Both band played very long set lists making the second show extend well past midnight.  The shows used GD's prototype Wall of Sound with a stereo PA System with JBL speakers inside Alembic cabinets plus a stereo Auxiliary PA.  Truly an historic event and we have all of the Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers music for you in nice soundboard quality.

  1. Thanks! I was lucky to be at the 1st day's show. The bands were both great. It was a typical hot humid DC weekend, causing a lot of problems keeping the instruments in tune & sound system running smooth. Took the train down from Jersey, which was full of many other concert goers. More old ABB please. [Boston Tea Party maybe?]

  2. Solid post here, Arizona!

  3. Thank for all your great posts!

  4. Thanks for this. I am really enjoying the ABB shows

  5. Finally got around to DLing this - Thanks AZ.


  6. An incredible two days of music, though oddly seems positioned as a warm-up for the Watkins Glen festival a month and a half later. The music wasn't nearly as good there, though.

    When the Dead opened the 6/10 set with Morning Dew, that's a sign it's going to be a great day.
