Wow, this show was strange. Hardly a few thousand folks, if that, in the audience. A few die-hard tour rats and some farmer-looking types from the area. I remember well how the band took the stage a bit early, Jerry wearing dark sunglasses, and how they tore into the music and let 'er rip.

It was as if they were playing as a form of meditation and the journey was sweet! Jerry sang many, many "extra" verses on Truckin' that I had never heard before or since, and although it was weird to see so few people and the relatively uptight locals that were there for the show, the music was superb~

Old Hippie Lost in Mississippi

Wow, Ron, the acid must have been really good at that show. I listened to the recording at archive, and it's a standard Truckin, sung by Bobby as usual. Anyway, this is a fine example of a 78 concert. Nice song selection. The aud at archive dot org is very listenable.

First set, at least on the AUD, is a bit of a mess.

Second set is a scorcher, the AUD blows away the SBD. Beautiful, serene Scarlet Fire. Great 78 style Promised Land. Solid Other One, and Stella > NFA is MIND BLOWINGLY GORGEOUS. You CANNOT miss this!! The Casey Jones encore rocks too. Go get the AUD as soon as possible!!

I was not at his particular show but I really dig it. I live in the Jackson area and I AM an old hippie lost in Ole Miss.

Heard this one on the GD channel the other day. Very nice. Whole show has a nice groove to it.

Just listened to this one and wanted to second what Pete said above - the Stella > NFA transition is gorgeous stuff, and NFA smokes the whole way through. Listen to this show for that, at the very least. Sweet show, grate stuff!!

Hah!I was dosed to the gills and could have sworn Jer improvised several choruses on Truckin, as well as singing the entire tune. Thanks for sharing reality (what a concept, right?) with me.

Got some great chuckles going! Dynamite show. Dynamite history we all share.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em (need doses, please help).
