Friday the 13th, super brief, but it's there between Dancin' and Wharf Rat, both great versions!

There was nothing like a Terrapin in the Garden! Into drums-quick-weird-almost-Close Encounters-Spanish Jam-rip-roaring Truckin' in the Garden....

Short and sweet and kinda quaint as this was the third time ever, still a work in progress... into a very good Day Job!

Franklin's Tower

Winterland Arena

Beautiful stuff happens about halfway through this Franklin's.... part of a beastly sequence... Eyes-Dancin-Wharf Rat-Franklins-SugMag..... Not always one of the shows we talk about, when we talk about '77, but it should be up there!

Baltimore Civic Center

Absolutely. Entire show, especially the China-Rider, and the Other One-Sing me Back Home... Gotta say, listening a lot to 3/19/77 last 2 days, and forgot how insanely brilliant the PITB is on that one....!! A Samson sandwich with an Estimated-Terrapin starter on the side, all in the first set..... And forget about Set 2..... Too much...
