Uncle John's Band
Big version, gets very spacey
7
Around and Around
The never stopped Rockin
6
Deal
5/11/77 > 5/8/77 IMHO. Execution is near-perfect. If you like Cornell, check this one out from only three days later and compare.
26
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
It's criminal that this hasn't made the list yet. Like super-smooth '77 versions? You MUST hear this.
5
Jack Straw
Inspired, Powerful, and ripping solos throughout, High energy coming from may 77' box
23
Sugaree
New #1 favorite. Slightly more compact than other amazing '77 versions & so a bit more focused. 2d Garcia solo has no equal.
12
Pretty Peggy O
This one just sticks with me....
11
Big River
This hot version from St. Paul is from a very under-rated show that is better than Mosque show IMHO.

Looks Like Rain
A perfect rendition and maybe best of May 77. Bob and Donna really harmonize well at end. This St. Paul show deserves more hype.
6
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Nice version with Keith playing organ.
5
Wharf Rat
UJB>Isolated Jerry solo>Wharf Rat is epic
1
Estimated Prophet
If all the others are on here from May, this one shuldn't be forgotten. However, most are tough to differentiate from May 77.
4
Promised Land
Smokin' promised land. Super tight. Very under-rated show.
3
Space
This is referred to as Space on the box set. Its the isolated Jerry solo in between UJB and Wharf Rat. All of this show is so sweet.
15
Brokedown Palace
Pretty fitting encore for this show!
5
They Love Each Other
Just perfect like the whole night!
3
El Paso
Crisp and nimble
1
