My favorite Eyes ever!
-


incredible show!! the half step is one of the all time greats...rates right up there with the half steps from 11/5/77, 9/3/77 and 4/8/78...wonderful eyes too!

-


best music never stopped hands down.
-joe head


listening to this show on headphones @ work as I type... this is a smokin one. I forgot just how "on" it is... highly recommend.

A great performance of 'Eyes', but what makes this an outstanding version is how the song opens. Its a thing of beauty. Another stellar '77' 'Terrapin'.
-Anonymous


whole show proves why I started listening to the boys play in the first place. Awesome setlist, with great keys work throughout, especially on FOTD, wharf rat is incredible, oh yeah, and Terrapin, Estimated, Eyes, The Wheel, just incredible.

Always liked this minglewood.....
-If I had my way


this is a damn good show..peggy-o is one the very best i have heard..half-step is just unbeleviable. the jams in it a real good and long. best half-step i have heard yet..:) tenn. jed is just smokin with tasty licks from jerry. and the music never stopped is the kind that just rocks the house and closes the first set. open second with terrapin and you are under way for the complete mind melt. FOTD is just exactly perfect. Eyes will have you spinning and Wharf Rat just drips with goo. Nutshell: get this show for the excellent sound, playing, and just top-notch may 1977 you can get.. :^) some people like the next night better but i like this one... haha
-Ga-DeadHead


lots of "best of" versions this night; Peggy-O, MNS, Half-Step, Terrapin, Wheel, Wharf Rat. The first set is flawless. Sometimes I beat off to this version of Peggy-O.
-Art Glass


favorite part of the show is the wonderful space coming out of the Wheel...into the most beautiful and fully jammed Wharf Rat ever. Jerry's playing throughout the segue is stunning.

Rxcellent Peggy-O. I thought my head was gonna roll off my neck! Beautiful keys.

Estimated>Eyes. The inception of this blockbuster combo!
-Perrinswolf


The feedback during Bertha with everyone laughing is priceless!! Wheeewwww!
-DeadReckoning


Don't you love it when Brent flies off the hook during his solo in Eyes Of The World? Completely off the hook. He is such a superstar.
-TonyG (08/01/2008)


Ahhh...TonyG, Brent joined the band in 79. But, it is nice to hear Keith, cause that is rare :)

the 1st set kind of suffers from some equipment issues. During bertha there is a loud feedback squeel where you hear bobby and donna both laugh it off. kind of neat, It didnt seem like the band really got in the groove until peggy-o. MNS really is one of the best.

its amazing to me how every terrapin i've ever heard sounds pretty different. this one is a little more fast paced/rused then most IMO.

samson and delilah punches hard.they are playing VERY tight. one of the best.

friend of the devil is kind of in a weird spot for me, but they deffinatley came through with some energy.

from 2:00-4:00 during estimated prophet is magic. the harmonies are on. the solo is awesome.

Great show nice sound on the board. The 1/2 Step rocks so does the MNS!

Killer Estimated in the second and pretty Eyes!

Funny Bobby at the start "You can't imagine how surprised I am that some of our equipment isn't working...our speakers are being obstinant"
- (09/07/2013)


One of the best 1/2 steps ever.

Man that post-Wheel space IS dandy... Felt like I was in a Dark Star for a minute, WOOO!
-Lintman (11/10/2014)


Bobby: "Billy's 18 today... you ladies out there may not think that's very old, but watch out because he's world wise..."
