the sugar mag is one of the best of all time...the long jamming intro. is what makes it extra special!!

Great show, but at the intermission there were only about only 200 people there. At least thats what I remember.

Peggy O-can't think of a bad version

Terrapin-masterful for 1st year!

E: Truckin>Saturday Night. Now that's a way to leave the fans happy on the way out!

Crappy sound from the version on I deleted it off my iTunes as there are 20 better 1977 shows.

The segue from NFA into Stella, and from Stella into Sugar Mags is awesome. Completely subtle, and just smoothe. Recommended for those three songs.

The Jam between stella blue and sugar mag is why we love the Dead. Half of it is Kieth{the only piano player worthy of the Dead} and Bobby Jamming with no Jerry at all. Then halfway Jerry jumps in and takes them to Sugar Mag.The Dead then sing perfectly to one of the top 5 Sugar Mag. solos by Jerry, Fast, fun, and never knowing what was around the corner. In fact the Sugar Mag. jam was so good, the fans GO NUTS, and Bobby walks to the mike, and really cooly, says, now thank-you very much. He knew the crowd knew how much that Sugar Mag. ROCKED. and so do I.

How about that let it grow. Its beautiful. That sliding guitat transition at the end of the jam is GREAT

My first of many grateful dead shows. How could anyone ever forget that. I had listened to a lot of records at that point, but never heard the Dead live. I had no idea what a great show was coming. It ended way too soon, but I remember that I was a fan before and a Deadhead afterwards. Moody was not as good of a venue as McFarlin, but it held a lot more people, leading some to believe it was sparsely populated, but everyone had actually left their seats to get to the first 2 levels and rock to some kick-ass solos especially sugar mag and saint stephen. I went with a girl who had only heard of the Dead, but she became a fan after that show even though she had never heard any of the songs before the magical night....Great Memory

A long time all-time fave show!!
Big, bad, and bold just like Dallas, TX!
The band was absolutely ON FIRE this night.
Phil pounding the walls. Very special from start to end. Love Sunrise and Stella Blue is just incredible! A must listen!! 5 stars!!

Holy Cow! What a 2nd set ending with a superb Stella and a Sugar Magnolia that smokes any other version.

Just heard this show on Sirius this afternoon. All I can say is that the above comments are right on. This show blazes...WOW!

Been making my way through the back half of 77, and this is a burner of a show. Garcia turned the distortion up in TX, foreshadowing his 78 punk-inspired playing.
