Crazy good show from a crazy good month...great slipknot & they ain't done after franklin's...right into sick stealthy dancin

Dancin' in the Streets
'76 is always funky but this evening seems to have an extra layer of the FUNK, Help->Slip->Franklin's->Dancin how did they have so much energy 40 min.

Samson and Delilah
The transition from Dancin->SAmson is pure bliss, Jerry is a master pure Garcia bliss, Amazing stuff, NIce and funky.

Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
I am a Jerry guy but Bobby has many of the headiest songs in 1976, Meaty hot funky LL->Sup. aided by Jerry's incredible guitar playing.

Cold Rain and Snow
Cold Rain and Slow - very mellow cool version they seem to be tooling around the arrangement - Bobby and Keith standout on this one.
