Grateful Dead Aug. 4, 1976
Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City, NJ | Listen on archive
28Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
maybe the best ever
12Dancin' in the Streets
whole show smokes
lazy and groovin with some heavy phil up front - very nice
2Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Prepare youself for blastoff during this version. This day might be the show of 76'. A must listen!
Just another highlight from a most enjoyable second set. Wow the boys were all on fire this show!
I've never heard another version sound anything like this masterpiece. This is one special take the gang did, pure bliss...
11Ship of Fools
A great The Other One->Ship Of Fools.
13The Other One
Smoking version from a hot show.
I've posted my share of '76ers here, yet somehow not this one, a go-to version for me. Amazing vid on YT, also. Super Phil-heavy
Show opener! Starts in one tempo and ends in another. Elements at hand. Has its bright and shining moments.
Fantastic 15+ minutes of standa-lone Scarlet featuring a very Phil-front bass section post-lyrics. Final jam section gets real jazzy, too.
Of all the things I've found here, this is the one I'm proudest to have found.
7Samson and Delilah
Somebody wasn't ready at the beginning, but things turn out alright.
4It Must Have Been The Roses
The wonderful slow super stoney jam reminds me of that Miami '74 Jam > Ship of Fools
3Not Fade Away
Funkiest playing of the intro material?
3They Love Each Other
Phil digs deep this whole show. Jerry rips a nice solo on this one
5The Music Never Stopped
Jerry tears this one apart with a shredding solo. The link here is bass-heavy SBD with some decay, but just brilliant playing by all.
3New Minglewood Blues
Phil heavy in the mix
1Looks Like Rain
Pretty but Powerful. Donna sounds great this whole Summer but the boys bring the punch here, too, especially toward the end.
