Estimated Prophet
Pure mind-expanding insanity, slightly sinister and tight in its off-kilter odd-metered way. Cool organ sounds from Keith. Well-rounded May, '77 show.

Playin' In The Band
Tiptoes on silk spiderwebs across a silent field of pure cosmos. Won't blow you into pieces, but will free your head from this mere terrestial plane.

Gotta check out the "small" songs in legendary shows like this as well as the usual suspects! Check out Jerry's utterly perfect bridge jam & be in awe

Everything was played to perfection this evening, including this El Paso. This song just adds to the great flow of this maybe best show of 1977.

Good Lovin'
Super crisp and clean by Jer here. excellent reading of this song.

Drums
This show even has one of the best drum segments of the year! This is "The Show!"
