Crappy second set, song selection wise.
-Steve (05/30/2008)

Totally sucks, I know. NFA > Stella Blue (!) > GDTRFB (perhaps hottest version ever) ... give me a break. Lame.

Lynyrd Skynyrd's plane crash was a week before this show. 10/28/77 was the first show the Dead played since the crash.
The second set seems eerily appropriate...

that wasn't my comment lol

My very first show. Dragged a little in the middle, but everything after He's Gone was sublime. Have never heard a better version of Around & Around, and the NFAs from this era were as good as it gets.

So i see no one makes a comment when Keith uses a corny Synth, but when Brent does it it's blasphomy. Seriously, where the fuck did keith get that shit synth? Wish he woulda stuck with the good ol' grand piana.

Interesting note: Lynyrd Skynyrd were headed to Baton Rogue where the Dead just played.... the previous date and week before this show....
-Anonymous (08/27/2018)

This may have been the first show they played in 1977 where they did not perform either Estimated, Terrapin or Music Never Stopped
