I remember like it was yesteday. After U.S. Blues is finished the band walks of the stage, people are leaving the venue and a small group of us start to do the "love is real NFA" chant. It spread and before you knew it the boys come back out and did Box. I wonder how many tapers have that one?

I remember it well. It was about ten minutes after leaving the stage and the crew had been taking down equipment and then when they started putting things back, the crowd went nuts(for the west coast anyway). It was a very cool experience.

Great Fire set opener. Such a slow and peaceful version of the song. Also, Bob gets a little TOO carried away in the Lovelight. Nice try, but you are no Pigpen!!!

Fire>Samson>Ship-9/11 times played, last 5/23/82 & next 8/6/89. Excellent combo that I missed, mainly played in late 70's through early 80's.

Great show.

Technically...the Fire>Samson>Ship combo was done 10x. On 4/16/78 Fire ended S1 and the Samson>Ship opened S2 (no '>' between Fire and Samson).

I obtained the radio broadcast of this show a few months ago, but I had not listened yet simply because the period leading up to Jerry's coma is typically regarded as 'less than stellar' performances. Now that I am finally giving it a spin, I am pleasantly surprised by the quality and energy of the show.

My favorite part is actually during the first set. Starting with Minglewood, it struck me that the energy level was extremely high. Jerry follows up with a spirited Big Railroad Blues, and that inspired energy continues through the remainder of the set. I think the sequence is noteworthy and I recommend that any fan give it a listen.

In my opinion, the energy level drops off a little bit during the second set, but it is still clearly a fun and quality performance.

Don't let the year '1986' scare you away from this one. This show is definitely worth a listen, and I am happy to have it in my collection.
