Let It Grow
I don't believe this one's not represented!! 22 minutes long, Brent's first, Jerry's jammin at warp speed....slowing into powerful drums
7
Stella Blue
Holy crap....how did I miss this show? Beautiful, soaring version from a very "on" night for Jer and the boys
4
Stagger Lee
Maine shows were always top notch, no different here with an excellent version of Stagger Lee.
6
Truckin'
They totally screw up the lyrics, but once they hit “Get back Truckin’ On” wow it rocks, the first peak is very powerful, then a second peak.
6
Terrapin Station
A sublime treat. A kinder, gentler Terrapin. Great sounding vocals leading into a monster LIG

Mama Tried
The crowd sure is fired up for this one.
1
Mexicali Blues
Everybody polka!
2
Drums -> Space
What sounds like a momentary Let It Grow tease in Space, if you’re listening for something in particular. Powerful and pure Grateful Dead.
2
They Love Each Other
Brent goes funky with his solo, then Jerry goes lyrical.
