Cassidy
Sweetness
37
Mission in the Rain
One of the best Dead songs, short lived but a good life it was
8
Sugaree
All the all-time Sugarees from early 77 start here folks, and they're already sublime. Keith shines.
10
They Love Each Other
Reeeeeaaaal smoooooooooth. . . .
24
Playin' In The Band
Spacey and crazy Playin in the Band gets real wierd fast before dissolving into absolute space
7
Dancin' in the Streets
Another fabulous and funky 1976 Dancin' Super disco funk on this one, Hot
7
Row Jimmy
I am well aware that the cliche, "I can't believe this version hasn't been mentioned yet!!" is well played out...But
12
Friend of the Devil
Just about perfect
9
Let It Grow
Liquid
9
The Music Never Stopped
Airtight version with perfect orchestration. Especially sweet vocals with Donna Jean at her best. Never quite lifts off in the jam though.
9
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
I suppose everyone knows the one the night before, but this one is tighter & more overwhelming in that all-encompassing 7/4 mindmelt way.
17
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
So many brilliant ones, but you're missing a real treat if you count this one out. Particularly strong Franklin's but the Slipknot! is brilliant too.
5
Big River
Super up tempo and thoroughly rocking Big River, can't even believe it hasn't been posted yet. CHECK THIS SHOW!!!
7
Brown Eyed Women
1976 goodness
8
Looks Like Rain
Surprised this version isn’t listed
4
Promised Land
Great show opener
2
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Well-played encore, sounds incredible too
5
Samson and Delilah
Phil’s and Jerry’s sixteenth-note runs light up this version with a country-blues twang faintly reminiscent of Cumberland.
3
Might As Well
How is this not listed?! I realize all the June 76 versions were great but this is mind-blowing!
