Brown Eyed Women
Just exactly perfect
10
Sugaree
Great up-tempo jam! Bobby and Jerry sound nice together
11
Not Fade Away
Insane. Ridiculous. Drummers locked in, Garcia in take-no-prisoners mode. 16+ minutes of full-bore Rock to the G-D Roll.
2
Mama Tried
So damn funky; killer groove. I'm a stickler for vocals, and Bob sings this one beautifully. High energy '77 version.
7
High Time
An excellent rendition
6
Bertha
Rippin'

Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Can't believe the heads are sleeping on this one. 8 1/2 mins of nectar after NFA
8
Samson and Delilah
NOT just another '77 version. Insanely-tight jamming, 2nd set opener, KEITH, JERRY, PHIL! Best version I've heard.
8
Estimated Prophet
NOT just another '77 version. BIG bridge solo, pure Jerry/Donna backing vocals, scary Mutron solo into Eyes. One of the best.
6
Sunrise
Pure Donna vocals, and raging Garcia solo before the last verse. Donna sounds great throughout this entire show—it's a real smoker.
4
Deal
Wow, not on here yet??!! Folks, this is where it's at...yet another smooth, flawless May '77 solo
6
Eyes Of The World
Powerful melodic jamming on this one
6
The Music Never Stopped
Just listen to Jerry! Donna's harmonies are great as well.
2
Jack A Roe
MAy 1977 Pure Magic
2
Big River
Excellent Big River with some Disco flair.
3
Terrapin Station
Fast pace tight jammed 3 months after the debut.
2
Uncle John's Band
The encore of the penultimate show of May 1977. It's short, but these people are practiced at this date.
2
Passenger
Rock music as it should be. The band is really on this night and this song just flies.
