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.

One of the best standalone Scarlets, and probably the very best of '76. Deserves to be much higher, and brings everything together perfectly.

These '76 versions are some of my favorite NMBs out there and this one has great oomph and swagger.

Starts off pretty sparse and mellow, but then watch out. Jerry weaves sweet line after line in the middle solo portion. Following the interlude something happens and it's in a totally different gear, grinding out power chords and Phil bombs. Fun stuff.

Well this is just a thing of great beauty that every head should hear. It's rightly famous and legendary. We'd hear stories about this day from old heads still on the tour fifteen years later.

I don't think this PiTB stands so much on its own, but because it book-ends a hour-plus of musical brilliancy, it really adds something. The outro definitely kicks ass, though.
