Rare for '76, it starts a bit rough, but then finds its gear and blasts off. It sounds a bit like a mid-80s version to this head.

MLB makes a mini-return 4 minutes in when Jerry pulls Phil out of the song for some fun. MLB is the origin of TMNS. Here they are together.

Overlooked show probably due to the middle AUD quality, but listen here and you get pure Jerry perfection, plus a possible explosion on stage.

Beautifully ensconced in a delicious 2nd set framed by a great Dancin'. On its own this one is pure and lovely. Great Fall '76 show.

Bobby throws a little bit more chaw into this one. It's full of spit and loads of fun. Great first set all around.

Dude 420, you are hearing that correctly. It appears the night before too. Check out this cool site on some of the recognisable jams: http://deadessays.blogspot.com/2010/01/deads-early-thematic-jams.html

This and the stand alone on two days earlier are just bonkers-good. I love how this one comes way down for tree-skimmingly low-altitude high speed chase.

Weak outro though. This show has some soft spots.

Weaves in and out of the 2nd set in so many different styles and states. The wheel > jam was noted, but from the first wah-wahing introduction to the fade out into GDTRFB, this is peak '76.

What more can be said about it? It's stopped me dead in my tracks and I can't move on. I've been listening to Oct. 1, 1976 now for over a month and just find more and more in this suite every time. From the SB standalone forward this show just keeps giving.
