16
He's Gone
The jam at the end is pure heaven. Sometimes referred to as a Caution Jam, but not really. The segue into a monster Other One Phil bomb is unrivaled.
3
Around and Around
This ones just explodes!
7
Easy To Love You
Brent's also at his best here, Down on the Cape.
11
Jack Straw
Beautiful Version
23
The Other One
Redick Phil bombs bring this one in. Shorter than some of the other classics but loud and intense.
15
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
'79 was a good year for this combo This version is Tight!
5
Stagger Lee
Lots of submissions from this show. 2 well-played sets - this is my favorite Stagger Lee, not sure exactly why it just has IT.
7
Black Peter
On a night when everyone is playing well they pull off this sweet version.
27
Franklin's Tower
Great Dancin'-Franklin's opens set 2.
4
Lost Sailor
Phil's all over it
4
Big River
They keep it under control, and it rocks.
3
Me and My Uncle
laid-back version with nice contributions by Brent
6
Candyman
Vintage 79' Dead. Jerry nails each and every note.
6
Caution
Excellent Caution Jam in this He's Gone...One of the best shows of the 70'S.
5
Not Fade Away
I usually don't go for the slower ones, but the band is on fire and Garcia's got a bone in his teeth.
3
New Minglewood Blues
This whole show has that extra little magic spark. Brent definitely energized them for the fall 1979 tour
3
Drums
This is a fantastic Drums at this epic show. Sandwiched between a terrific O1 and just as good NFA.
3
Deal
Are you kidding me?? Honored to be submitting this. Enjoy

Drums -> Space
Following one of the most powerful versions of The Other One ever, this Drums is on par with the rest of the best show of 1979. The goods!
