My tape only has from Me & My Uncle through Lovelight, & on the tape i spun my copy from just states, "Trip out hard." Well said, this dark star is one for the ages!

Little Sadie-only 2nd of 7 times this beautiful murder ballad was performed. Head on radiodead today.

UJB-Boys harmonies sung to perfection!

This show was featured on Sirius today and the opening acoustic set is killer as much for the music (which is ragged) as the killer banter. FYI- Bill was, "somewhere over Omaha" as the first set was played and Phil is non-existent during much of it.

Listening to this show on XM right now and I am thouroughly enjoying it. Nice lost gem! Some of the best harmionizing I have ever heard from the boys. Smokin' China Cat>Rider. Cant wait for the Dark Star!

Heard this last night on XM, awesome show. Makes me look at my alma mater of SMU a little differently, in a good way... can't find the whole show for download, Uncle is cut out, any help?

A beautiful, very young (11 of 343), Black Peter.

It's so cool to think they we're 6 months out from recording 'Working Man's Dead,' and to hear this track is so neat.

Along with UJB, High Time, Casey Jones, & NSB; it's such a great experience to hear the development of the Dead's Music, no other other band.

Found this show at recently. I was at the concert. The acoustic set was improvised by Garcia and Weir because all the band wasn't there (or at least ready - very unlikely that Bill was really somewhere over Omaha.) It was neat how various band members started showing up on stage, gradually transforming the show from acoustic to electric.
