The Stella Is SOOO Heart felt... It's simply Beautiful :o)...Mickey's B-day...

OH my GOd , Jack straw
i can not stress that enough
1. get the tape
2. listen
3. drop jaw.
Stellal blue is soooooooo sweeeet
but I just could never get over Jerry's Jack straw - in-human speed for about three minutes but of course perfect
you can't go that fast with your tongue
to fake it - CHeck it out

one of the best peggy o's ever! jerry sings it slow and sweet and his guitar solo goes on and on!
the other one is truly a "pile driver" version that cooks big time!!

this was my first dead show ever! 15 years old and blown away!! needless to say, there were countless more down the road! would LOVE to get the me!

Don't have a tape, but i gots tha CDs. Email me if you want to trade for it.

This and all 1979 shows are now available for download at

was it the crowd???i dont know but the boys are on tonight...niiiiice sugaree..Jack Straw is so tight and jerry plays the shit out of it..been looking for the acid/clive part and i found it.:^) set ii is a "band beyond description" prophet->he's gone->drums->truckin->other one->stella is just one of the many,many reasons i love the Grateful Dead...Get this one boys and girls. Cant think of any better way to start off 1979...

Just listened to the show. Jack Straw has some extremely intense guitar playing, great jamming right up to the end and just when you think you've heard the best Jack Straw ever, they (mostly Bobby) fucks up at the end and starts the verse to earlier to "Jack Straw from Witchata cut his buddy down".
Man, what a heartbreaker. Otherwise all the other comments are right on.

As someone who is from Wichita, I LOVE the killer versions (don't we all!) and this one is a KILLER VERSION! The way, but Jerry is NOODLIN all over, I won't mention Bobby's fuck up...

just replaced my moldy old cassette w/ a fresh sb download just because i remembered the jack straw. off the friggin charts. might be the best. also check out the following deal, jerry's solos over the choruses might be his best on that tune as well. awesome show.

HAHAHA, "Used to play for Acid, now we play for Clive". This is why i love them, they will do subtle shit like that, intentional or not, and it just makes a huge roar come out of the crowd.

I was there.
From Sweden.
On acid.
My first Dead show.
My ooohhhh my

Have to agree on Jack Straw - an A++++ version. And then right into a spirited Deal.

And Peggy O really shows Jerry's strength as a vocalist. Pigpen could bring his bluesy vocals to some great songs but Garcia was able to elevate songs like Stella or Peggy O like no one else.

The deal has a solid 25 cycle refrain at the end before jerry belts out a solid "oh no"

-Anonymous (03/21/2017)

solid sugaree...awesome guitar interplay between bob and jer!

DSO played the heck out of this show last night at the relatively new Brown County Music Center. DSO and the crowd were into it big time! Stunning show!!
