Birdsong>LLRain>Deal-heard this nice ditty on radioiodead this fine Monday morn. Garcia melds his soulful lyrics and licks at the start/with Bobby providing a solid performance in the middle, all the while Jerry elevating the song (LLRain) to further heights. But he was not done and polished off the set and left KC spinning w/a mean Deal if there ever was one. I have come to think that Deal is one of the best songs to prove how great of an axe-man he was for all of us.

To Lay Me Down-Simply soulful in all aspects of delivery. Garica's voice aling with the rest of the boys harmony wise are spot on, measured playing pace with no flubs. The song's second life after being introduced in the mid 70's and fading out till the late 80's in about a year or so. Perhaps a prolonged adieu to Brent?

Absolutely Perrin, Deal has been one of my favorites since i listened to '72. Such a good fun song. Can't imagine the dead without it.

Dancin' is the first since '79 and the last 'til 84
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (09/13/2016)

If you take the different arrangements into consideration, this is actually the last Disco Dancin'. The Dancin' return in June '84 is actually the first time that particular arrangement was played since new years 1971. Both versions are great, but i think the Disco arrangement ran it's course by this time and Brent was taking the band into more bluesy and spacey styles of music.

there is one absolutely splendid and sustained note at the beginning of the final guitar solo in Deal like none other....i am not a guitar player and have no idea what effect is being used on that note but it is really something!
