Whole lot of fun here. Sounds like they meant it on this one. Closes out a great first set.

Jerry and Keith are just on fire behind the beautiful vocal duet. This show is underappreciated. Give it a spin....

Always preferred the fast ones, but listening to Jerry rip up the solos here and it makes sense. Killer version here (with a rude AUD patch though).

Has a crisp and tight disco shuffle prefiguring the '77 sound. Jerry's solo fills are precise and brilliant. Donna's harmonies are as sweet as ever.

Nice on its own, and brilliant as part of a great PITB-SS-Wheel-PITB sandwich. You can hear the fun their having. Short but sweet.

Video looks like it was filmed through a pair of black socks, but the camera work is professional and was probably an authorized video (on stage closeups, multiple cameras, good videography). Does anyone know the story behind it?

Cool if not grainy video of this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf1dNTexCL4. Be warned, it looks like it was filmed through a roll of electrical tape, but it's nice to see them up close again.
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication

Sweet uptempo transition into Supplication. LL>Sup was such a sparkling tingly buzz of a jam, and with its angular off-kilter 7/4 "lop-sided wheel" propulsion, it's almost the perfect musical expression of the effects of certain bitter South American alkaloids. Just sayin'.

CRS show-openers were always my signal that they meant business: It has that bite and jump with a big shout chorus that demonstrated tight ensemble playing from the first note of the show. This one is no exception, except that it's got a mellower, more melodious smooth '76 vibe. It's a beauty for sure, and a perfect representation of where they were for the Summer tour after the hiatus.

Nice reference Cucamonga! Just listened to the Live at Pompeii version today to start my morning. Does anyone know if the Dead and Pink Floyd ever crossed paths? Played the same festival? Any historians out there?
