Samson and Delilah
Love these ’76 Samsons – Phil’s thumpin, vid posted!

Sugaree
As much as I love May 77 Sugarees, Spring 76 is where it's at for me. Subtlety, separation, and Garcia's whispery, silver-dipped guitar breaks.

Great, long Big River with awesome interplay between Jerry and Keith. Always a great jam from Download series Vol. 4
