Loved the "Mission in the Rain." I taped this show from about 20 rows back with a little handheld recorder. Still have the tape somewhere.


Some great Keith playin' on Promised and TLEO. The Sugaree still had the pre-retirement pace which I am fond of. 5th time Music played, 2nd of only 3 Mission's and the 4th Samson.
How about that 13 song first set huh?

6th Help>Slip>Franklins. From the sounds of it, the boys knew this sequence of songs was a hit early on as this rendition proves ten times over.

You love the clean soundboards, right?
Here's another...

This show is kind of boring to me. Maybe the source I have is lacking depth or it could be the overall softer jazzier '76 sound of this show but just seems like there was some energy lacking on this night.

Still some cool things to check out like the seamless segue from PITB to Dancin' or the rarely played Mission In The Rain.

Fellow Deadhead Fans, I so wish I could have seen these four Boston shows in June of '76. They tracks on archive are awesome. Keep on Trucking! tyedyetom

I am not necessarily in agreement with Paul who stated that this show is 'kind of boring', but I understand how one might get a sense of lacking from this performance. The reason being (I believe) is that there is no sequence of four to seven songs strung together to create a show signature. This is one of those shows in which it is simply a collection of songs (PITB>Dancing not withstanding). Mind you, those songs are played beautifully. I found myself dancing here in my living room several times as I listened. I thought Franklin's and Let It Grow were especially sweet, and I always stop & groove when they play Mission in the Rain.
To sum it up, for those of you that gravitate toward the long uninterrupted sequences (like me), there are many many other shows that better fit that bill. That said, this show offers a smorgasbord of beautifully performed early 1976 live Dead songs, and it is certainly worth a listen.

There is a slight inaccuracy in the setlist. It goes Let it Grow > Drums > Let it Grow > Friend of the Devil. FOTD does not come out of drums.

This show has been officially released as a part of the "June 1976" Box set. The box set was released in June 2020 and has since sold out.
