Great show. It was a very small venue and the Scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain had some of the most unusual echo effects.

Great show. All Jerry 2nd set. Hot as hell that summer, sweet venue. Also the Ms. Virginia contest was being held at the hotel across the street. When 2 worlds collide

Estimated Prophet
He's Gone

Me, indeed you are correct, all apologies. Wonderful spirited Sugar Magnolia and soulful Black Muddy River.

Had a great time at this show. Very small indoor venue for the Dead to be playing....approx. 10,500. Tough ticket. Hot as could be that day. Good Time Blues, a.k.a.--Never Trust a Woman was a treat. As was the Dupree's before that. Crazyfingers and Comes a Time at the back end of the set was wonderful. Last Comes a Time of the 80's.
