Might As Well
High energy opener Very spirited and rocking right off the bat. Start of a great night in Dekalb!
41
Black Peter
outstanding black peter. i think it gets my #1 vote, check it out
35
Eyes Of The World
Starts out Jazzy, explorative, takes its time, 3 minute intro, then blasts off into the stratosphere with intense Garcia-led jamming
14
Jack Straw
There are longer versions, but none has a better bridge jam than this one. My favorite version ever--must listen!
15
Bertha
Sweet bass drop-ins by Phil on intro; extended Garcia solos in bridge jam; very intense and fun
17
St. Stephen
With all due rfespect to Barton Hall & others, this is the best version out there (IMO). Bluesy, rockin', jammin', just exactly perfect
17
Sugar Magnolia
Best ever. No fooling. Don't miss Mickey and Billy dueling each other at the frenzied end jam before heading into SSDD. Whole version insane!
5
Good Lovin'
Of course these can't compare to the early Good Lovin's, but this is a hot version in a HOT show...
12
Not Fade Away
Really Good Version
6
Dire Wolf
A standout version from a great show.
29
Let It Grow
Probably the best LIG of 1977 and my favorite stand-alone version!
7
It Must Have Been The Roses
Almost every song from this show could be nominated for a "best ever." This heartfelt "Roses" is no exception.
11
Estimated Prophet
From the show that never stops giving--a spacey-jazzy-goeey-Wah-Wah-chunk-fest-of-Jerry.
9
Looks Like Rain
Bobby is on, but Jerry is on-er
7
Ramble On Rose
Epic, energetic version!
7
Friend of the Devil
High quality solos by Keith and Jerry.
3
One More Saturday Night
Like every other song from this, my favorite all-time show, it's a best-of candidate. Just rocks hard.
7
Loser
Every song from this show should be on here. This Loser is certainly deserving, solo is on point.
5
El Paso
Everything from this night is well above average. And listen to Keith!
