Boutwell Auditorium

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable

Sugar Magnolia

Fox Theatre

Really melodic jam, which builds incrementally in velocity and intensity - then, screaming sunshine daydream

Cassidy

Uptown Theater

Very heady jam segment in this one. Show is a sleeper from May

Cassidy

Providence Civic Center

The latter half of a great on-two punch to kick off the show (1/2 step preceding), this Cassidy is an absolute bute. Bob/Jer communication is tight

New Minglewood Blues

Boston Garden

Jerry rips a sick intro solo. Hyped up energy

Shakedown Street

Capital Centre

Very cool Ollin Jam into a nice, early version Shakedown, sliding effortlessly into a Playin' Reprise. The end of this jam comes together nicely with some staccato type playing from Jerry
Truckin'

The Spectrum

HUGE call and response interplay between Bobby and Jerry. Fan of bluesy back and forth axemanship?? Yes please.
The Music Never Stopped
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

Agree, sweet wind up for this one
Row Jimmy

Uptown Theater

Jerry solo is an emotional swing for the fences. Powerful, within the expected framework of this somber song
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

The Scarlett from this is really nice. Loose, airy, flowing jamming
