I disagree, the first set was very solid, smoking jack Straw. Second set had a lot of new tunes(at the time), but the Cumberland & the rest of it was smoking hot. I guess you must have bought some bad doses or something.

I have to with Randy on this one...the first set is white-hot...this is one of the best versions of "Jack Straw" out there.

first blow away ? anyone ? Bueller ?
US Blues encore = Good show

The opening numbers in the first set are ripping as is the second set opening of Victim->Cumberland. Blow Away is a better version for not having that overly synthed out keyboard solo but a piano style solo. Ship Of Fools is sweet and one of the better versions. Truckin' has a clean start and it doesn't come out of space as was common at the time. Truckin' falls into an inspired Terrapin Station which leads to a kickin' Drums/Space. The Other One is massive while Wharf Rat is a cool respite after such a massive jam. The Around And Around->Good Lovin' is well above average with Bob's guitar sounding especially grungy. U.S. Blues ends the show on a hot streak.

The only bummer about this show for me is that I had a soundboard of this back in the late '80's and it had a "swishy" sound and a brief cut in Box so i didn't keep it. Since then, all I've been able to find is audience copies.

at the hotel bar after the show the crew, bobby and billy were all high fiving and raving about how great of a show it was. I have to agree. A smoker among three other average shows.

These were the first shows I taped and I still count the Jack Straw opener as one of the most blazin jams the Dead ever opened with. Followed by the Thursday night opener of Aiko Aiko.
