Dog Gone Blog: "Something In The Air Pt. II" Providence Civic Center

 
Sam Davis who does some excellent work over at Dog Gone Blog. Takes a look at the Providence Civic Center and some of the stellar Phish/Grateful Dead shows that have taken place in the historic venue. Sam offers some audio samples of his favorite musical moments. Be sure to check out the Grateful Dead's "China Cat Sunflower > I know You Rider" (probably my favorite version) from June 26th, 1974. Also, Phish's "Oh Kee Pah > You Enjoy Myself" from their April 3rd, 1998 performance is another personal favorite of mine.

However, Phish is not alone in realizing this powerful energy that permeates from the PCC’s walls. The Dead have also managed to discover the same source on more than one occasion. I find it to be no coincidence that the Dead have a segment included on an official release from this venue (Dick’s Picks 12), and another show that contains a “best ever” version (along with many other memorable visits).

I’ve chosen some highlight moments from both the Dead and Phish’s past performances at the Providence Civic Center that span the course of 36 years. These examples show the bands in heightened improvisational states, resulting in some top-notch jams.
