If I ever get to joyfully skip to my destination I'd hear this theme en route. Relentless yet not mean/crunchy like previous year's IAON greats.

8+ minutes of twitching and dodging. This show is easily strongest most complete of Godchaux Winter '79

I do love that Catfish but I'm looking for an outlet to share my single favorite Jerry performance. Since Lonesome and a long way from home doesn't have it's own rack, allow me to rest it here. I think same era Catfish fans will dig this. 4/3/76 JGB Washington,DC -' Lonesome and a long way from home' The jam isn't spacey/unstructured like usual this one is like a killer S>F segue that builds up to levels Morning Dew never reached. Check it out, this is insanity and so happy it's resurfaced! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCgJBT2WWKA&list=PLMz53NYZY033bHjRhSzBt9zMwhWUKb8EK&index=53

Shakedown Street

This is the boy's first great Shakedown with Brent IMO. Weir is playing futuristic (mid 80's) type riffs all song. Brent is handing out orders by cracking a fun house whip. Jerry and Phil are smirking and fueling the engine that's challenging this new formula.Two shows after this one and the band would head to the west coast and when they return in the Fall and they'll already have a completely different sound to invade East coast arenas. I encourage all to cherish/explore their mischievous May '79 side.
Franklin's Tower

This one is drenched in that Science Fiction bluegrass carnival sound of May '79. Weir and Brent are musical mercenaries kind enough to let Jerry finish off the crowd with a flurry. Crowd's reaction says it all.
