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

Friend of the Devil
The slowness of 76 works so well for this 2nd set FOTD. Prettiest song of the night.

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.

Scarlet Begonias
Interesting take here - space jamming, Donna cooing, cowbell work...

Let It Grow
Jazzy Jazz Jazz-Ma- Tazz - with kickin' devils.

Big River
This one cooks. Keith puts on a master class of the old razzle dazzle.

Muscular and confident, not at all dragging. Don't overlook it. It's brilliant and perfect coming in a blazingly good show and great 2nd set.
