Casey Jones
the return this is a ripper
10
Samson and Delilah
Hands down one of my favorite shows...this is one reason
7
Jack Straw
Sick version, sick show
17
Dupree's Diamond Blues
A strong version of a song that hadn't been played in years.
43
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
best kept secret of '77! groove is in the pocket, vocals are good, minimal flubs
23
Let It Grow
The most "Spanish-flavored" of LIG's, evokes old southwest almost Mariachi vibe. Brilliant Garcia changes-Rise&Fall!
8
Brown Eyed Women
Perfection firing on all cylinders: Tight band, muscular beats, beautiful vocals (Donna's on!) and that applied greatness that is the '77 Dead.
7
Deal
Bursting energy ending the 1st set in blazing glory. The shout chorus is outrageously hot. Has to be one of Donna's best nights ever.
4
Sugar Magnolia
How is this one not on here?? You think it can't get any better after the epicness of Truckin'>TOO>Wharf Rat, but then BAM they hit you with this
4
The Wheel
It's so apt that The Wheel would roll into Truckin' that the outro is short but the rest is very nice.
9
Sunrise
Garcia nails the solo
8
Playin' In The Band
I love 77 Playin's. This a cool meandering one...not tiger.
3
The Other One
Some spacy exploration before settling back into a thundering roll. Don't sleep on this one.
7
Truckin'
This packs a punch then after the drop major lick-city and nice tension with Phil as they transition into TOO
5
Wharf Rat
Great version, great second set.
2
El Paso
Practically perfect. Jerry and Keith are all over this version.
1
Johnny B. Goode
Strummin' to the rhythm that the DRUMMERS made. They're pounding their kits while the rest of the band rages behind them. Keith sounds great too.
