just got a cd copy of this excellent show!! every song is performed well...the second set is weird how it opens open with rooster but then they kick it into high gear with china>rider and never look back!
check this one out boys and girls but be aware that it ain't easy to find those who seek and find will be rewarded!

Little Red Rooster-1st time played. Boys wanted to showcase, opened the 2nd set.
Alabama-end 2nd set...!

Hey Perrin, this show started off the China>Rider>Estimated>Eyes quartet and ended in MSG 93 18 shows later.

Yes, Dan, this was quite a popular boot back in the day. Must have had a decent-sized pressing.

Comes A Time is a treasure!

My first show. Had always loved the Dead since 75 and by 79 they were my hands down faves. I flew into OHare from DC and my college roommate picked me up. I wanted to visit Chicago and drive back to New Mexico for fall semester with him. We both loved the Dead. My roommate says 'look in the glove compartment.'

He didn't tell me nor did I even know the Dead were playing in town. 3 nights to boot. And there were the tickets.

We had second row balcony right in front of Jerry. All I can say is I thought I was a Deadhead before. But I really got it this night. I'll never forget the China Rider. Nor Jerry feedbacking during space. Comes a time was amazing. There were tears.

That was the 1st of 115. And then seeing Dead and Co in Eugene last summer for the first time. It felt very much the same. Long strange trip indeed. Thankful is an understatement. Grateful is more to the point.
