Whopping late '77 version of this, the Dead intuitively coasting the waves of the atmosphere's collective imagination.

Whoa. Transcendent loping version. And i mean, what a stunningly allegorical lyric from Hunter, too. Amazing video, thanks.
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain

It's a messy scarlet fire - but rly, think about it for a sec. The Dead's candor and can-do approach to live music-making is what allows it to reach new places anyway. Surely we can forgive some kind of sloppy changes. There's still lots of nutty jerry mu-tron and rippin' 7-piece goodness

its a show like this from "Terrapin Station" tour that makes me wish Donna had better monitoring or in-ear, something, to keep up with everyone else in turms of amplification. This is a really nice building type of thing, pretty stuff in 77.

Wow, 16 votes. Stellar and skyrocketing prime 77. Gotta love the vibe of that Betty Board also.
