Recommended Source: SBD - Miller
Synopsis:

Unfortunately Jerry's guitar cannot really be heard in the first 4:30 of the opening Half Step in the SBD source, but best to just be patient with it - since the AUD alternative is very poor. There are also several Audience patches throughout the show, but Charlie Miller did a great job putting it together - and actually the patches kind of add to the mystique of the performance.

As mentioned, after 4:30 in Half Step, there is decent clarity. Phil is on his game early on, and Jerry leads the way nicely into Franklin's and then another smooth transition is achieved into Minglewood. Momentum starts to really build with the cowboy combo, featuring a very nice Brent solo in Big River. Althea is cooking with energy, a superb rendition in which Phil, Bob, and Brent all take musical liberties in their supporting roles. Easy To Love You is classic Brent, especially the sound he has in the song's intro. Stranger returns to the madness of Althea, including a really fun buildup to the triple-note sudden ending.

Rooster makes it's first appearance since 1965 here in Chi-town, blues town, and was more free to roam in comparison to some of the factory-farmed Roosters of latter years. China-Rider stormed out of the barn and through the fields, it's latter half featuring some fine Lesh, and then drops off of a cliff into the valley of the Prophet. Estimated has a dreamy feel to it, and after Bob's vocal shrills, Taxi Brent takes over for a solo with the sound of the popular sitcom of the time's theme intro. Taxi leads to the lounge section, and Garcia takes over. Eyes gallops through it's first 8+ minutes, and is full of prime Jerry, but then normalcy is abandoned.

By the 9-minute mark Jerry had laid down some sinister guitar notes, and they were in full-Space - didn't even stop for orbit. A completely unstructured period of unpredictability led into the traditional Drums segment, which was extended and featured some nice Vulcan. Having already been to Space, the post-Drumz period of Space is actually a short lead-in to a completely unorthodox set placement for Playin in the Band. The stunned Uptown crowd voiced their appreciation, as Playin reached full depth in it's instrumental passage - and then euphorically dissolved into Comes A Time.

A vintage Comes A Time makes it's way back into the Playin theme, and the Reprise completes a wild late-set sandwich. A&A brings reality back into focus with straight-forward rock and roll, and then Alabama provides one more surprise, in a most unusual set closing position. Johnny B. rocked the night away to conclude this extra bright Point of Light.
