Boston Music Hall Boston, MA | Listen on archive
25Mission in the Rain
One of the best Dead songs, short lived but a good life it was
All the all-time Sugarees from early 77 start here folks, and they're already sublime. Keith shines.
2They Love Each Other
Reeeeeaaaal smoooooooooth. . . .
2Dancin' in the Streets
Another fabulous and funky 1976 Dancin' Super disco funk on this one, Hot
16Playin' In The Band
Spacey and crazy Playin in the Band gets real wierd fast before dissolving into absolute space
I am well aware that the cliche, "I can't believe this version hasn't been mentioned yet!!" is well played out...But
4Friend of the Devil
Just about perfect
1Let It Grow
1The Music Never Stopped
Airtight version with perfect orchestration. Especially sweet vocals with Donna Jean at her best. Never quite lifts off in the jam though.
1Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
I suppose everyone knows the one the night before, but this one is tighter & more overwhelming in that all-encompassing 7/4 mindmelt way.
3Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
So many brilliant ones, but you're missing a real treat if you count this one out. Particularly strong Franklin's but the Slipknot! is brilliant too.
Super up tempo and thoroughly rocking Big River, can't even believe it hasn't been posted yet. CHECK THIS SHOW!!!
