St. Stephen
Holy heady version! This is a religious experience. I flat out love me some '76, wow...

Might As Well
At the Beacon Theatre in NYC, Jerry noodles his way out of the first set with this upbeat tune.
2
Promised Land
Rockin' & tight ya'll. Nuff' said. There needs to be a promised land repped here.
2
Cassidy
heady version!
2
Dancin' in the Streets
Played almost everynight of the tour but still maintains a funky fresh disco dead flavor.
4
Sugaree
Smooth, silky, and that unique silvery June '76 Garcia sound.
2
Let It Grow
Super Sweet Version From an Amazing Show!!
1
Candyman
A subtle beauty. Just a bit of swagger, just a bit of grit, lots of fine singing, and an acqueous solo for the ages.
2
The Music Never Stopped
Really short, but very tight. Jerry ends with a cascading riff that sounds like spotaneous composition. Anyone know if they played this jam again?
1
Not Fade Away
Jam starts to bubble and boil and rolls on with great creative force. Very cool '76 sound, and a great mix with Bobby and Phil interaction on display
1
Samson and Delilah
Swaggering gospel here, with all the muscle and might befitting the song. Bobby's having a blast.
2
Friend of the Devil
I won't say best, but there's a very cool Hawaiian vibe with Jerry and Bobby backing Keith's solo around the fifth minute.
2
Sugar Magnolia
Cool Sugar Mag>Scarlet Begonias>SSDD sammy. Is this the only one like it? The SSDD kicks ass.
1
Scarlet Begonias
Great standalone sandwiched between a Sugar Mag and her Sunshine Daydream. Nice combo.
2
It Must Have Been The Roses
While we're at it...
