Absolute ripper. Band sounds like they started warm and heated up. Great first set.

Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

Starts with Jerry barking orders: "Rock and Roll! Rock and Roll!" and it doesn't disappoint. Caps off a high intensity blazing glory of a show. DP33.

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.

Comes A Time

The transition out of this is so good it transforms the Franklin's that comes after it into an almost entirely different song. Strong performance and great show.

Both a musically tight, breakneck roller-coaster and a psychedelicore madhouse filled with twists and turns a jump-out-at you moments of mind melting gooeyness. Around 08:35 they sound like they're going into a totally new jam, but it gets whisked away like so many hallucinations. Brilliant suite and one of the best of the few TOO of the year.
He's Gone

Shrine Auditorium

This is one of the best shows of 1976, and every song just jams and jams beautifully (except maybe Bertha, which sounds like an unplanned mess). This He's Gone is one luscious peak after another. So beautiful, so fine.

This scorcher will amaze you. Jerry burns with the force of a thousand suns. Really.

The "It Factor" is dialed way up past 11 here folks. Don't skip this show. Strap on some headphones and cross that Rio-o-o-o Grande. This one is a beaut. I keep using the word "powerful" to describe their playing on this show and I think it's apt. Check out an under-the-radar MHUT and enjoy!
