Scarlet Begonias Radio – Last night in Europe 1972

by Dennis on December 22, 2011

We wrap up our trip through Europe ’72 with the last set of the last show of the tour:

The last night. Exhausted and ready to go home, the band still brought their A-game and played what many consider to be one of the top two or three shows on the tour. A 19-song first set(!) ended with the usual second set closer “Not Fade Away>GDTRFB>Not Fade Away,” and also included a 17-minute “Playing In The Band.” The second set is so good that it was immortalized on Side 5 and Side 6 of the Europe ’72 album. What that album is missing from this jam, though, is a terrific “Other One” around the “Morning Dew,” and the finest (and totally appropriate) “Sing Me Back Home” of the tour.
