Lastly this week is the end of the show from 12/3/79 in Chicago, featuring Lost Sailor>Saint Of Circumstance>Wharf Rat>Truckin', Johnny B. Goode, including a rare set-closing Truckin’, similar to 11/6/77 in Binghamton.

re 12/1/73 UJB

I listened to the entire show recently. I thought it sounded like during PITB they were "searching for the sound", and then Jerry forces the issue during the UJB intro, and they then "get there".

we will see if the text and the clip can be brought into better harmony.

Nothing has changed - the language above is a little off and the audio file is a little off.

12/1/73 Uncle John's Band

I only recently heard this for the first time and had (yet another) jaw agape moment with this band even after 30 years of listening to live performances obsessively. That's how they have held my attention for so long; "best ever" moments just keep coming all though not as regularly. Perhaps part of my shear amazement was at the very fact that gems like this can remain hidden for so long only to be revealed when unexpected! The transition into UJB is just so masterful and Garcia's leads are some of his finest work here. Just spectacular!
