Stache Rides 1978 Vine

started by dstache

Here is a two show offering from 1978. Popular opinion is harsh on 1978. While I agree that there are some bad shows in 1978, and even more average ones, I think that all in all, and especially in comparison with any year after, it is pretty good. There are a bunch of very good to great shows (1/10, 1/11, 1/22, 1/31, 2/3, 2/5, 4/16 ...). Well, here are two more, 4/11 and 12/28.

Both are high energy shows and A SBDs. I rate 4/11 as a VERY GOOD show, tied with 4/22 and second only to 4/16 as the best of the 7 April '78 shows that I have. 4/11 Highlights include (a) a mid-first-set Tennessee Jed (generally one of my LEAST favorite Garcia songs), (b) a set-ending Deal, (c) Jerry HIMSELF announcing the set break, (d) a hot Fire out of a solid Scarlet, and (e) a great Iko (again, not a favorite song of mine) out of drums.

12/28 is a GREAT show. Highlights include (a) a first-set-opening Sugaree, (b) another hot Jed, (c) a MONSTER set-closing Supplication, (d) Eyes of the World and (e) a great Truckin' out of drums (another song that isn't at the top of my list).

These are WAV CDs, six in total.

Look for a 1977 version of 'Stache Rides soon :)

Derek, do you have 4/18/78 by any chance? My first show and I only have a mediocre aud.

Thanks.

posting like this and I think it makes it easier to sign up and track things when most posts have the list and the info of when it came In and Out (rather than having to search for the list when you want to sign up or check on things)

I have also corrected birdsong's name and updated the list (removed mitd)

thanks dstache

Yes I do have it, yes it is ready to go and will be sent to birdsong1969NJ today and yes I do have a very sick family member that is my focus but I am plugging away at the vines as I get the free time to do so.
