Brent does some type of carnival clown sound during Mama Tried...kinda of funny.

Peggy-O>Love every version.
Dancin'>Franklins>LLRain>Deal-Only time this sequence was played. Brent is all sorts of funky on Dancin. Absolutely sweet combo to end the first set.

Starts out as Aud but improves to SBD quickly.
Truckin'-Brent promiment througout. As if he were in the band for ten years instead of sixmonths.
Wharf Rat-comes out of nice eerie space
-Brian Merrilyn

Well stated

My first show. Jerry's hair was just starting to get streaks of grey in it.

Between Peggy-O and Tennessee, Jerry seems like he's just spacin out, not really present, just poppin in with a riff here and there. Then, in the middle of dacin' he just comes back to life and rides rocks it out the rest of the show. did jerry dose or somethin? very strange

Dancin' in the Street: "winter's here, but the time's still right, for DITS"
-DarkStarHarry (02/15/2016)

Great interplay between Jerry and Bobby on the first set (!) Dancin', which slides nicely right into Franklin's as it was sometimes wont to do in 1979. Band played this hall once in '69, once in '77, 4x in '79 and never again. AUD sounds pretty good to me.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (12/13/2018)

The played here in Nov 72 as well
-Bobby McGeese (04/01/2020)

Perrin, goofy keyboard sounds on Mexicali, not Mama Tried....
