8
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
A brezzy show opener, lots of beauty here
8
Black Peter
Jerry shreds.
13
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Super mellow transition from Scarlet to Fire
5
Let It Grow
Blistering...
2
They Love Each Other
Everything good about '77 just keeps rolling here.
1
Samson and Delilah
The band tears into this.
4
Terrapin Station
The transition into the "Terrapin Station" material is particularly strong, with powerful playing from Keith.
2
Playin' In The Band
Exploratory version right out of "Terrapin." Donna sounds great, and Phil leads the jam.
2
Drums -> Space
If this had been tracked along with the preceding "Playin,'" everyone would have said "of course." This whole second set is killer.
3
Truckin'
Ends a great Set II sequence. Listen to the drummers play along with the whistle blower in the audience!
2
Tennessee Jed
Builds to a nice climax after some interesting lines from Garcia. Whole show is worth a listen.
1
Candyman
Dreamy, motionless rendition on a sea of individual human reactions [audience tape]. A wonderful time for this gem.
