They groove this one straight through, and it's funkadelic heaven

The Cryptical following "he had to die" refrain is stunning. Try not to be washed away by Mickey and Billy's percussive tide. Cosmic Chuck follows

Out of a fantastic second set. Caps it off beautifully and with force

I can't believe I've missed out on this show for so long. Jerry seems to be trying to top Bobs Good Lovin'. The band is clicking.

Zoiks! Goosebump-inducing finish here, too. Watch out

This one is a rip-roarer, for sure. Transition and beginning of Fire on the Mountain just sits right in the gooey-goodness place no "rock" bands have ever found. And to start the second set? Damn. Totally second everything AMDew says. ONLY the Dead can rip, shred, grind, AND jam at the same time with such dexterity. It is all that all the time, and it's mystifying ( to me at least)
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication

Nashville Municipal Auditorium

That lick you speak of inspired me to look this one up, and Hooray, I posted it. I was gonna say that tho I wanderingly listened to the Lazy Lightnin'>Supp, the ending crushed my mind outta the park, and it was that little flourish JRock throws down that did it, plus they nail the vocal ending. (Note: Best experienced by listening to the show straight thru. GRATE ending to a first set.) Good call Brother Luigi.

April '78 is darkly intensely beautiful and amazing and psychedelic rock-and-F*in-roll. Compare the two Nashville versions of '78, t'other being 12/16, for a fun game.

There is in fact an earlier one, one of the most amazing shows ever, partly due to this tease, also due to a sick Bertha and Hard to Handle, among others...8-6-71.
