Brown Eyed Women
Crowd responds to this version very favoribly so much so that both Lesh and Garcia say "Thank You" after it.

Comes A Time
Stellar version.
3
Might As Well
Just another great performance from this month.
2
Cassidy
A bit slower than the others I’ve heard from this month, and I think the song works better this way.
2
They Love Each Other
Jerry blows a verse, but the solo is good. Nice playing from Keith.
3
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Great Phil rips, nice vocal harmonies. Nice soloing on “Supplication.”
3
It Must Have Been The Roses
Lovely playing and singing from Jerry, and Keith is all over this first set.
3
Estimated Prophet
Dig into this nice first set "Estimated." Phil joins in on riffing on the main riff, which I’ve not heard before on this tour. Nice solo.
4
Sunrise
One of the best versions I've ever heard, even with the not-so-great AUD.
7
Playin' In The Band
Heady "PITB > Drums > TOO > Comes a Time > PITB."
5
The Other One
Never really expands beyond the song’s material, but hard and well-played. Hear in context of set 2.
6
Brokedown Palace
Beautiful performance.
3
Ramble On Rose
the crowd in the aud is worth it. the recation when jerry sings "just like new york city" no wonder they always loved nyc

Tennessee Jed

2
Samson and Delilah
Nice ending to set one slightly funky feel crisp 1977 version.
