this shows great,1st set is awesome, but the 2nd is the real gem. jerry starts it off by sayin' it looks like the seventies are gonna be weir then they rip in to alligator, and it's all about pig...litterally killer jamm right into drms and then good lovein, and the the eleven, definately some one of my favorite jams i've heard you could hear the excitement in the boys...and it's soo easy to see why the grateful dead is so timeless. this is a must have in my opinion.

I am listening to this show (on SIRIUS radio taped show) and after Alligator during jam there is Pig singing part of Caution before the music turns to a spacey jam with feedback followed by Good Lovin and then drums (short) before The Eleven

I was there, seeing the New Year in with the Dead instead of some stupid lighted ball. Livingston Taylor (!) opened the show, along with a comedy group. Man, the Dead were unbelievably great back then, and that concert was one of the best.

There's also a brief but very nice GDTRFB jam before Good Lovin. Actually the second set has some great jams.

Great night. I was there and was in the improv group The Proposition. We opened for the Dead. . I remember 2 things. I borrowed a guitar pick from one of the Dead. Not sure who and backstage people were coming up to us and whispering "don't drink the punch" an amazing memory.
