Brown Eyed Women
Just exactly perfect
18
Sugaree
Great up-tempo jam! Bobby and Jerry sound nice together
17
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.
5
Mama Tried
So damn funky; killer groove. I'm a stickler for vocals, and Bob sings this one beautifully. High energy '77 version.
14
High Time
An excellent rendition
14
Bertha
Rippin'
16
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Can't believe the heads are sleeping on this one. 8 1/2 mins of nectar after NFA
9
Samson and Delilah
NOT just another '77 version. Insanely-tight jamming, 2nd set opener, KEITH, JERRY, PHIL! Best version I've heard.
14
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.
8
Deal
Wow, not on here yet??!! Folks, this is where it's at...yet another smooth, flawless May '77 solo
11
Eyes Of The World
Powerful melodic jamming on this one
13
The Music Never Stopped
Just listen to Jerry! Donna's harmonies are great as well.

Jack A Roe
MAy 1977 Pure Magic

Big River
Excellent Big River with some Disco flair.
8
Terrapin Station
Fast pace tight jammed 3 months after the debut.
3
Uncle John's Band
The encore of the penultimate show of May 1977. It's short, but these people are practiced at this date.
6
Passenger
Rock music as it should be. The band is really on this night and this song just flies.

Around and Around
In any other month in any other year, this entire show would be considered a rip-roaring classic (which it is!!). Donna is awesome.
2
Looks Like Rain
Donna and Bobby sound great together while Jers guitar provides the rain.
