The first at Red Rocks and it's a monster to boot!
8Pretty Peggy O
The most agressive Garcia vocals, matched by his playing, top 10 easy, don't know why it wasn't on the list
13Cold Rain and Snow
Surprised this one hasn’t been nominated, a great version with impassioned Garcia vocals and lead runs, give it a listen. Love the vocal coda as well.
7Friend of the Devil
lovely version! great first set on this date!
6Dancin' in the Streets
Scarlet fire Dancin what a run a pure jammy thon at Red Rocks Jerry really enjoying it
Open the first Dead show at Red Rocks. Has more fire power than the 77 versions.
3Beat it on Down The Line
This continues the cool groove of the Col Rain. Great version. This show needs to be listened to.
2Drums -> Space
Sweet first red rocks show. They tap into some great shit out there real primal stuff get an aud version
1Nobody's Fault But Mine
More than half of this NFA is actually NFBM jam and a killer one at that. At times tough to differentiate the 2 tunes.
4U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Don’t always love the ’78s for this tune, but this howling version certainly warrants attention.
