A pleasant surprise

While looking to round out my collection of shows from '78 I came across this and figured why not. Having heard nothing about it I was not expecting a whole lot. By the time "Peggy-O" was done I was in awe of how amazing this show turned out to be. A massively under rated show.

Damn near a perfect show

Short but very sweet.

Gets my vote for best Iko Iko.

Oh Yeah

This show also contains one of my favorite Jerry line flubs. In Scarlet he clearly sings:
"She had rings on her fingers and shoes on her toes."

I love it, heee heee.

Totally under-rated show. Should be considered a "classic." J.G.'s vocals & lead work are exceptional. Feels like the band knew/felt J.G. was "on it" this gig and just gave him space to fly. Personal fave tunes: 'Peggy-O' (sublime vocals)/Minglewood/Scarlet-Fire/Ship of Fools (sublime vocals). There are moments which bring tears to your eyes from ecstatic appreciation. Prime candidate for a 'Dick's Picks'. Peace, y'all......

Love the '78-81 Dead - their peak

It doesn't get any better than the Dead from '78-81, IMO. Great song selection, vocals and instrumentation. Wish I coulda' been there for one in this era! (I was 4-7 years old) What's your favorite period from their long live history? Try to be impartial - I know a lot of you were fortunate enough to get to see them live! Some of us only get to enjoy them on record and thanks to Youtube. But that's better than nothin'!
