Dick's Picks 18 right here. I have this show. It is awesome!

Does anyone know where the Dupree's on Dick's Pick's 18 comes is not listed on either 2/3 or 2/5 and is only listed as being played twice in 78'? Thanks

duprees sounds like 77

Listen to Bertha!!!

the single most SCORCHING
Scarlet>Fire you will ever lay ears upon.

The way the dead captured my attention was with Samson, Scarlet>Fire, and about 10 hits of acid. That night I found out that Jerry is God!!!

check out the jam out of truckin! Whoo-ee!

Yeah, the DP is awesome. Particularly that part in 'OTHER ONE'. If you've heard it, you know what I'm talking about.

I know the part in The Other One that Richard is talking about, and it is ferocious! This show definitely has the best Scarlet> least the best that I've ever heard. I had a cassette of this show for years and was overjoyed when Dick's Picks 18 came out.

the most incredible scarlet/fire
best fire jerry ever played

This show is just phenomonal. It amazes me how tight and energetic the band is at this show. The Terrapin, although from the night before, has got to rate as one of the top three i've ever heard. Get this Dicks Picks and you'll agree with me. I have a large collection of tapes from 77 which happens to be my favorite year for the dead, but when I heard this show, I had to start collecting every show within a two month radius of this one. I just couldn't let another show like this slip through my fingers. Check it out on etree if you can.

This is one of the top 5 Scarlet Fires of all time!! Simply smokin' !!

My favorite Scarlet Begonias>Fire On the Mountain of all time. This is a must have. Samson & Delilah is also quite the gem as well. I can't even begin to describe the sound of Jerry's guitar on this show. Words can't even begin to explain it. Do yourself a favor and get Dick's Picks 18 today. You won't be disappointed.

indeed, THAT part of "the other one" is ferocious....that note he hit's is glass shattering,,,,,as for the "dupree's", i believe it's from the night before this from milwaukee,,,,

Scarlet>Fire>Samson>Ship Of Fools-1st of 8 times this played.
-Perrinswolf (06/21/2007)

samson and delilah is the first song of set 2 not the 3rd
-chris (12/03/2008)

Is that the best deal solo or what jerry takes that one for walk out in the woods and brings it back home he is the greatest american musician of all time bar none
-Stagger lee (06/30/2009)

Best Bertha ever! Listen to Jerry's solo, it's something else...

It was twenty below zero that night and that doesn't factor in windchill. When the doors opened we were sucked in by the Uni Dome air pressure. The Dead then took the chill off and jammed their brains out.

The Scarlet > Fire here is great. The one thing that keeps it from being elite in my mind is that Garcia drops the last verse in Scarlet completely. They go right from the bridge to the solo. Other than that it is amazing.
- (03/18/2015)

Also Garcia only does 2 verses of Fire. No 2nd Verse "Almost Ablaze..." Another reason it can't be an elite Scarlet>Fire. Although the lack of verses makes for some great jamming.
- (12/31/2015)

The interplay between Keith and Jerry in Scarlet>Fire is palpable and quite evident. The subtle but distinct one note suggestions by Keith launch Jerry into heretofore new soaring, scorching heights. It's hard to argue w Cornell 77 fans on the potency of that S>F version due to the fact that that whole concert was A+, but as a stand alone, the version they played out int he cornfields of N Iowa gives me the most chills of anything they have ever created
- (05/03/2016)

Oh, and to those who nitpick on the muffing/forgetting the proper lyrics... That is the REASON it is the best version ever. They were so immersed in taking the structure of the chord sequence to such new heights in a disciplined way that WHO cares what the lyrics are at that point. The lyrics became a vehicle to move the music along.
- (05/03/2016)

This is one of the best Grateful Dead shows of all time!!! the Bertha solo is just Jerry peeling the paint off the walls...and the whole rest of the 1st set just smokes...and fuck me the 2nd set is just melting GD at their best...I mean just reading that set list alone gives me a chub, Scarlet>Fire, Samson, Ship, Truckin, Other One> Wharf Rat R&R Us blues!!!!! are you kidding me...and played to the hilt!!!! forget about it...

Hot show! Dicks Picks Vol. 18 is only pieces of this show. If you want a awesome version of this show (not missing Tennessee Jed and the concert is in order) then track down the Keep On Truckin'... 3 disc set! Sound great! Boots rule!
- (08/07/2019)

What an epic 2nd Set...just reading the setlist of this 2nd set gives an experienced Deadhead goosebumps and then you got the insane execution! it's nuts, the Scarlet>Fire is an all time version and the rest just continues that energy...
- (01/11/2020)

No good loviní jack Straw guess it never happened
-Kdead (04/26/2020)

no, the best fire on the mountain is lakeland 77
-Anonymous (10/17/2020)

Yes this very unique FOTM should leave you smiling and wondering WTF did I just listen to. Damn sweet show throughout done just right by the best band in the land.
- (10/21/2021)

Not 100% sure, but I think the setlist above is incorrect. No tape that I have heard contains Jack Straw->Good Lovin (reprise?).

They do all have "Brown Eyed Women" in that spot which is not shown on this setlist.
