After listening to this yesterday for like the 4th time, I gotta say it MIGHT be my favorite of May '77. A supreme Betty Board.... The band was fucking SMOOTH and the playing seems effortless. The marathon first set is a monster, great choice of songs and a Scarlet>Fire to close the set, that's kinda special.

I would go over this show song by song, but I dunno, can't really put songs into words without being repetitive.... Smile

If I were to condense this show of its highlights it would look like this...



Set one - 1/2 Step, El Paso,TLEO,Jack Straw,Jack-a-Roe ,High Time,Scarlet>Fire(MAGIC!)

Set 2-Bertha>Good Lovin',Brown Eyed Woman, Terrapin>Playin>Drums>Wharf Rat>Playin. E:Sugar Magnolia(CRUSHES)

Some little notes: Mickey's Birthday and Donna's homecoming

If you never heard this one, give it a skim.

Love this show too. Not a clinker in there, as mentioned, great Scarlet>Fire.

WVheads 5 4 77 has the awesome Terrapin>Playin>Comes a Time>Playin to close it out. The Comes a Time out of this one is one for the ages.

yes, the 5/4/77 Comes A Time is (in my mind) the best by FAR...many prefer 5/9/77...it's good, but can't TOUCH 5/4!

this thread has gotten me in the mood to spin some '77. 5/17 is storage, so i'm gonna bust out the sweet AUD of 6/4/77.
