The Music Never Stopped
Massive version! Was spinning on the treadmill at the gym and felt like I was going to run through the wall. Serious way to open a show!
22
Terrapin Station
really builds nicely
34
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Surprised this one is not listed, a great year for Half-Step, this one is worth a listen, a good version.
38
Pretty Peggy O
Jerry's vocals really shine in this version along with a really beautiful guitar solo with some nice interplay between Jerry and Bobby.

Looks Like Rain
Gorgeous, par for the course in '77

Not Fade Away
15 minute version, part of a St. Stephen-> NFA -> Stella Blue -> St. Stephen sandwhich. GD download series vol. 1

Maybe not the best EVEr but best of the year St.Stephen>NFA>Stella Blue>St.Stephen

Fire On The Mountain
everyones playing in the heart of gold band!
29
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Sick of saying "How can X not be here" yet but C'mon! Get the digital DL series and start bumpin this up! Smooth Scarlet, killer Fire jams. Early gem!
10
Deal
Over looked gem
11
Bertha
Love the double opener, typically great playing from the time. Keith fans esp. should know this Palladium run.
15
Its All Over Now
Great early-70s vibe on this (esp. w/ Moore's AUD). Honky-tonk Keith!
7
Estimated Prophet
Stand-alone version with some great jamming.
8
Stella Blue
Less delicate than many of the top rated, but part of nice sequence that hints at the full set jams to come next month.
6
One More Saturday Night
This rages at the end. Crowd loves it.
2
Good Lovin'
I typically find the post '72 versions of this song to be a bit of filler, but this one has some nice accents from Keith and some ramp-up ending chaw

Mama Tried
Awesome Mama Tried > Me & My Uncle
2
Me and My Uncle
Great transition out of Mama Tried! Real cool little western pair in the middle of a fantastic first set
1
Promised Land
Follows an awesome stretch of Peggy-O, LLR, Half-step. Energetic. Part of a very underrated show.
