Great show, female vocalist that night? I'm looking for the poster....not avail in wolfgangs vault

Row Jimmy-simply soulful a great version
Lazy Lightnin>Supplication>rocks the place accordingly to end the C&W mellow first set.

II-Overall Mellow set.
Terrapin-Song continues to grow as the boys move into 10th month of playing.

Playin'-Properly trippy with heavy noodeling.
Passenger-24/99th time played, version was played more times with Brent than Donna. Goes AUD in parts.

NO Drums! Space howeverwas included.

Estimated>Stella>Sugar-Only time this combo played, Stella>Sugar a regular combo but Estimated normally paired with Eyes or Terrapin. Stella version is very long and quite mellow with Keith doing some nice work, as is the entire set.

E: Around-tired and weak, boys tried to rev it up in the 2nd part of the song to their credit. 10th and final show of Cali run to start off 78.

You mean Donna? Difficult to call her a vocalist, but she did sing from time to time! LOL

The jam after Playin' is pretty interesting, since it finds Bobby playing alone with the drummers for a good bit of it. Also of course it's quite strange to have Estimated so late in the set. It's true that there's a tired quality to the band, esp. JG's voice (he sings only one song in the 2nd set, and had been battling vocal problems since earlier in the month.)

This one was weird and special. I had spent the day showing my girlfriend's girl friend from Philadelphia around SF and Muir woods in Marin. Then from Berkeley I hopped in her van and drove alone to Stockton. It was freezing rain all the way there. I was so tired and sleepy I would throw my left arm out the window until it got wet and frozen and then drag it back inside to keep awake. Over and over. Once at the show i ended up in a mezzanine area where people in wheel chairs were. I danced like a demon all night. Afterward I went around the balcony and collected a massive supply of leftover roaches people had left on ledges back when there were serious shortages of herb sometimes.

Mississippi Half-Step,,,,"Bam"

GratefulBill pulled a Weed, on what I only knew as a "Cocaine," i.e. people so desperate they would look in the carpet for spilled coke rocks. Hmm, think at a certain point I had one J on hand for every day, and planned ahead if that one was on the way out. 1976-1979 in high school, think I smoked everyday. Grew out of it as I approached senior year, I could clearly see the people did not look good. simply put, excessive usage seemed alien.

I'm left in a puddle on the floor from that super slow and soulful Stella Blue. Jerry's voice fading fast and it just makes it all the more soul crushing. It's somehow both beautiful and painful.
