Grateful Dead Sept. 3, 1977
Raceway Park Englishtown, NJ | Listen on archive
107Not Fade Away
DP 15 version is fuckin nuts.
130Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
from DP15..rules hard.
the version that turned me into a Loser Fan
Very nice recording and performance...Looong NFA jam out of it before they kick into a stellar version of that tune
Whew. Phil! Only heard him dig this deep vocally one other time(9.28.75). And the way he drives the band around 8' is UNREAL...phenomenal
Yikes people. The latter part of this show Does Not Miss. I coulda seen this encore and been forever satisfied in my Deadhead experience
24Looks Like Rain
Sweet...Killer...Plain and Simple Great
53Pretty Peggy O
The tune is really in a groove (literally and historically) at this point...very funny Weir banter after the song
171Eyes Of The World
This is from Englishtown NJ. Jerry is on fire...FIRE...did I mention Jerry was on FIRE!! The sweetest in my opinion of all versions and have seen many
9New Minglewood Blues
Englishtown...there's nice keith in this version.
13Rubin and Cherise
A great 70's Reuben & Cherise, seems to beat the later versions.
27The Music Never Stopped
Another heady version from an extremely heady show.
9Samson and Delilah
Out of this world good!
"and now a crazy little ditty."
17Friend of the Devil
Slow and beautiful. Great keyboards by Keith. Surprised this one wasn't already here!
15They Love Each Other
10Me and My Uncle
Great version. Before a massive Half-Step
I know its tough to differentiate 77/78 versions, but this whole show has that little extra even for 77. As good as any from 77/78.
