I was particularly happy to finaly heaqr this show. It is really no different from the other shows at this
time, but I grew up in Nashville and really enjoyed hearing hoe it soounded!
I am still looking for the 73 vanderbilt show and the 73 wallace wade stadium in Durham. By the way i still love the high school sweet heart that never knew named Mary Ann, from Beech.

Peace to all and "its my lightning too"

not the best sound but this show is a gem! for fans of jack straw and wharf rat this is a must have, enjoy.

Dave's Picks 15
-M C (07/15/2015)

With Dave's Pick Vol. 15, I finally listened to this '78 Nashville GD show. AMAZING!!! I have listened twice now and this is unbelievably excellent performance. Better than 4-24-78 IMHO. 4-22-78 has that GD X Factor just dripping off the recording. Almost everything is just exactly perfect.

I need to listen to 4-21-78 now; I have only heard the Stella Blue.

This may be my favorite 78 show. The Red Rocks shows are right there too. High energy throughout. I am guessing the band was jazzed to play in Nashville. Peggy-O is great. My favorite Supplication and the Estimated jam is a must listen. The Wharf Rat is special. The Daves Pick remaster is spot on.

The deal final refrain is insane, coming in at 43
"dont you let that deal go down" repeated in a row,
no "waits" counted.
This is, i believe, the longest on record (but 2-6-79 tulsa) has no audible record to check.
afterward bob says
"We quit, see yall later."

+1 for the Supplication, hell for Lazy Lighting too. Compare with 5/22/82, another favorite for this pair. Which one is better?

From Estimated to the end is really, really great. Really ripping initial solo in Estimated. A solid Eyes for the era. I love the late 70s NFAs - they're sort of bouncy and very jammy and very fun, in my opinion. There's a solo in Wharf Rat that knocked my socks off - generally that's my highlight of this show. A solid Sugar Mag and Saturday Night to close it, and that's a wrap on another excellent April 78 show.

Strong Wharf Rat with a nice transition into SM.
