Community War Memorial Auditorium Rochester, NY | Listen on archive
39Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Super Flowing and awesome
4Samson and Delilah
Banger! sounds like the mic goes out the first time they attempt to break into the chorus but second time's the charm
Build up into the last Jack Straw from Witchita is out of CONTROL
Dick's Picks 34. Awesome, lyrical jamming
This one has some nice extra chaw on it
Smoother than the smooth side of a smooth rock. SMOOVE.
23Eyes Of The World
Opening the second set with Take a step back into Phil's solo and a long tasty intro. Doesn't get much better than this!
9It Must Have Been The Roses
Dick's Picks 34 version.
The final vocals, “Run and See” give me goose bumps and the Garcia solo is also very good. I had this version from many years and lost it and always
Jerry's solo to close this one out is hard-driving and aggressive.
7The Other One
Sweet contours!!! DP 34
8New Minglewood Blues
Bobby belts the lyrics like his life depends on it. A ferocious and insane Minglewood all around
3Looks Like Rain
Another pretty version with Bob/Donna from 1977.
This one has a mid jam that is longer than most from 1977. Great version. Keith's sound is unique on this one, too.
A beut out of a great Estimated!
12Take A Step Back
This one should be here as it segues out of a Phil solo and then into an Epic Eyes!
Sweet Drums with Phil leads into a nice the other one
Full of energy and roaring throughout the whole jam including multiple peaking buildups.
