Shakedown Street
Laser-focused, perfect rendition, start to finish. Super-funky with awesome Jerry fuzz-guitar, rock-blues jamming post-vocals
7
I Need A Miracle
Flawless deliver by Weir followed by extended, bluesy, gritty Garcia jam
14
Dark Star
Shakedown, Bertha, Darkstar, St.Stephen all in the same set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1
Loser
Last ever use of the "Sweet Suzie" line...I think. Subdued, but there. Nice version taboot.
11
The Music Never Stopped
This is a mindblower. Jerry goes into hyper-speed and sends the crowd to a different dimension.
6
St. Stephen
Last one until 1983. This version cooks. This second set is ridiculous good.
2
Row Jimmy
Not too fast and not too slow with some nice double time at the end.
1
Wharf Rat
Hard to believe this is an AUD. 8:00-8:40 is a good example - crystal clear and tight.
1
Bertha
Galloping, tight version. Good interplay from everyone involved. One of thew few tunes Keith really came alive during his last two years with the band

Good Lovin'
Comes charging so perfectly out of "Bertha." Fun version from a GREAT show.
