the scarlet>fire goes on and on...a very glorious and spirited version!
hot hot show!!

..yet another comment or two on this one..the samson and delilah that follows that scarlet>fire is incredibly hot!! also the wharf rat is one of the best i have ever heard...the jam at the end of it builds to an amazing level!
hell even the johnny b. goode will blow you away...check this one out!

This is the first show I ever listened to by the Dead. I legit listened to straight albums only for the first year of being a Dead fan (haha crazy I know)

First time I ever heard Terrapin and it blew my mind. One of all time favorite songs and this version has stood up to a bunch of other versions I have checked out over the years. I can always remember the moment I put that Satellite station JamOn or whatever and it was just as Terrapin started and I never heard the song before. I simply had to get to the bottom of what song it was and instantly listen to the shows.

May not be one of the shows of notability but I listen to this all the time.

Question, I've been looking for sources on when Donna's last show was. Everything is saying February 1979. I can definitely hear Donna in this, so does anyone know what the deal is?

Thanks, peace and love as always

I feel bad no one ever responded to that poor, confused soul 'branderson' 11 years ago. No you do not hear Donna on this show. It's Brent and the proof is the fact that Easy to Love You, Brent's song, is played. His voice was particularly high in the early days. I bet I could even guess where the confusion originated... the 'Since the end is never told, we paid the teller off in gold' section of Terrapin. I heard it too. Sounds like Donna.
