Shrine Auditorium

The AUD is amazing. Keith shines, and everybody's into it. Bootstrap '76 knockin' down your door.

To the point - and totally out of the blue. This is Dead magic.

One of their truly psychedelic songs, on a truly psychedelic night. Incredible transition from Cryptical.

High octane Seven > Good Lovin' from a overlooked diamond in the rough.

Truckin'
Aug. 5, 1974
Philadelphia Civic Arena

Listened to this while waking up today, it certainly got me out of bed fast. Jerrys voice on the verses is so charged you just know it'll go the distance (31 minutes to be exact.) '74 Truckins are on a completely different plane compared to any other.
Wharf Rat
June 20, 1983
Merriweather Post Pavilion

God bless
The Other One
May 16, 1972
Theatre Hall

Agreed Ernie5, Jerrys opening notes always remind me of snow-covered peaks.
Dancin' in the Streets
Oct. 14, 1976
Shrine Auditorium

Best Dancin' by far. The unification of the pre-hiatus Dancin' and the post-hiatus version in my eyes, after the (close to perfect) transition from Wharf Rat.
Stella Blue
Oct. 21, 1978
Winterland Arena

Intensely moving, a holy grail among dead ballads. Go Jerry.
