This performance and the one dated 07/13/70 are the same performance. This date is probably CORRECT.
Verification of this date is as follows (via davmar77, w/ supplements by Mark Goldey):
This performance was schedule for July 13, as reflected by, e.g., ads in the July 10, 1972, issue of New York Magazine (p.24) and the New Yorker (Vol. 48, pp 10-11). On 7/13/72 it rained in the Bronx which probably postponed the show.
On 7/16/72 the Dead played Dillon Stadium in Hartford which I attended. Members of the ABB sat in. This and the Roosevelt Stadium gig in NJ on 7/18 were the only northeast Dead dates at the time. Garcia and Weir, I heard possibly Kreutzman too, all sat in with the Allmans at Gaelic Park. I believe this took place the day after Hartford. on 7/17. There would have been no reason the Dead would have come into the area 3 days early for their own show.
Also, I saw a number of references on line to folks who specifically said that 7/17 was the date they saw. At the time I remember hearing Garcia and Weir played
with them and I'm pretty sure it was after the Hartford show, not before.
"Garcia: An American Life" by Blair Jackson states: "In July 1972 Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley and drummer Jaimoe joined the Dead for a few songs at Dillon Stadium in Hartford, Connecticut, and the following night Garcia, Weir and Kreutzmann returned the favor by jamming with the Allmans at Gaelic Park in the Bronx."
