Grateful Dead June 17, 1976
Capitol Theater Passaic, NJ | Listen on archive
Flawless Whart Rat. Smooth jamming and Jerry's on his game
Chill ,mellow tight version that is available on aa sweet "Betty Board" that puts the precussion front an center.There seems to be 3 other examples of
31Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
Crazy good show from a crazy good month...great slipknot & they ain't done after franklin's...right into sick stealthy dancin
15Dancin' in the Streets
'76 is always funky but this evening seems to have an extra layer of the FUNK, Help->Slip->Franklin's->Dancin how did they have so much energy 40 min.
13Samson and Delilah
The transition from Dancin->SAmson is pure bliss, Jerry is a master pure Garcia bliss, Amazing stuff, NIce and funky.
11Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
I am a Jerry guy but Bobby has many of the headiest songs in 1976, Meaty hot funky LL->Sup. aided by Jerry's incredible guitar playing.
16Cold Rain and Snow
Cold Rain and Slow - very mellow cool version they seem to be tooling around the arrangement - Bobby and Keith standout on this one.
Interesting take here - space jamming, Donna cooing, cowbell work...
8They Love Each Other
nice mellow 1976 reading
12Let It Grow
Jazzy Jazz Jazz-Ma- Tazz - with kickin' devils.
This one cooks. Keith puts on a master class of the old razzle dazzle.
8Ship of Fools
Muscular and confident, not at all dragging. Don't overlook it. It's brilliant and perfect coming in a blazingly good show and great 2nd set.
‘76 Jed’s are really good
6Looks Like Rain
‘76 Looks Like Rains are also really good
9Friend of the Devil
The slowness of 76 works so well for this 2nd set FOTD. Prettiest song of the night.
3The Music Never Stopped
Swirling, cohesive and inspired. It may not hit the rousing peaks of 78, but it's damn fine.
2Around and Around
Right rollicking rock n roll
