The dead had recently broken up, once again, and here we were once again, as an audience, re-inventing ourselves, you know, the whole scene had changed and it was 1979, you know, a very wierd and strange year - but the dead were there all the time making strange sense of it all. This show was a wild one. I should know, I was there with a lot of acid and grass, in wild sunny California.

I was chillin', tripping on shrooms, smokin so much dope, drinkin some beer and having the time of my life. we hd a blast. Lot of good dead

Lil C&W mini set to start off with Bobby's guitar playing promiment in the mix.

Big River-spirited solo at the end
Minglewood-sick slide
Easy To Love You-14th/45 times played
Althea-13/225 times played
Sailor>Saint-17/145 times played

Shakedown-fabulously funky!
Bertha-wait..2nd song set the way the boys mix it up and keep the hands out the pocket pool.

my favorite shakedown street, with a brilliant segue into "bertha"
i also love the segue from "he's gone" into "the other one".
overall my favorite show from '79.

Wasn't that the show with the sound issues the first set?

-Anonymous (02/24/2019)

an extremely solid show, front to back. Jerry's playing is terrific throughout the first set (Loser, Althea, Lost Sailor), and Phil is assertive as well. Shakedown has fierce playing from Brent. Everything between He's Gone and Good Lovin' is top notch.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (09/02/2019)

I have been listening to a bunch of shows during the pandemic sorry to bring up bad times but 2020 has been interesting year to say the least. Brent just kills it for being the new guy. His singing and playing fall and winter 79 bring a new energy to the band. He had huge shoe's to fill. Like the good old Dead Head's after Pig Pins passing if you get confused just listen to the music play!?! Still jamin NFA 65-95
