Thu Jun 13, 2013 5:26 am

Hi Guys

I was wondering if anyone knew what the date of the gig is ?

It's listed as 1972 but i think it's 1973 and Jerry is not playing bass

We don't have very many decent photos from this Vegas stand, so thanks for posting it. Are there others?

Yes, because this suit was worn in January 1974 and this microphone is typical for the beginning of 1974.

Since it's January 1974, that must qualify as Winter 1974, no?

Be safe and call it "Winter 1973-74."

Fair enough. I know it's weird how I said Winter 1974, since it's not December 1974, but y'know, where I live, dialect is odd. :smt001
