Funny banter after Big River. Bobby "don't listen to the bass player he is tone deaf and has been for years"

Jerry retorts "Don't listen to Weir, he's been cracy for years"

Bobby or Bobby chime in w/heavy reverd "his lips are moving but nothing is coming out"

Brokedown is a wonderful version, with Jerry's grizzled vocals providing extra emphasis for this old standard at one of the boys favorite venues.

I love this show, some people give it an "OK" vote, but I think its a must have for any deadheads collection.

The second set is crackling with energy, the whole thing is just sooooo goooood.

Sure there some lyrical flubs here and there but were deadheads and we have all seen this happen many times before...no big deal.

The first set smokes, Brent rips it up on keys and the whole band is truckin on. Second set is great, I do not like the song Victim or the Crime, so everything else is great. Listen from Crazy Fingers to the end, the Watchtower and GDTRFB are wonderful and Jerry gives it his all during GDTRFB you can really hear it in his voice. The Playin>UJB is also nice, smooth.

I dunno about the earlier comment, the "Victim" is pretty good and I don't always dig that song. It's ugly and gnarly and full of energy. You can tell it's a early version and it's got some real hair to it. Might be my favorite "Victim".

I flew from Houston to see these three shows show with my brother. They were all awesome. Great venue, great set lists. After one of the shows, my friend who lived in S.F. got to meet Jerry (his friend was friends with Bob) and I was pissed that I wasn't with him.

A cassette copy of the second set of this show fell out of my bag of memories and has become one of my current favorites - luckily i still have some great tape players - the musical quality is excellent and the whole band is performing at close to their very best - Weir does a totally awesome job on Watchtower where his vocals are masterfully emulating Dylan's voice - especially at the end of the first verse with "know what any of it is worth" - bobby is really torching the feeling of the song in the best of the dylan tradition and inspiration . . . Jerry's performance on "Believe It Or Not" is especially heartfelt - including vocals and guitar . . . and i agree - the Victim is also especially well done - In fact - the whole show is excellent from beginning to end starting with Box of Rain and ending with Throwing Stones and Not Fade Away - with excellent Crazy Fingers, Playing In The Band and Uncle John's Band - Some of The Grateful Dead At Their Best . . . So nice to be able to get reconnected to some of these vintage shows - the music and and the memories of such a special moment in time . . . .
