Encore: Johnny B. Goode

(1) Lesh: Thank You. (2) Weir: Thank you. We're going to take a short break, so everybody hang loose and we'll be back in a few minutes. (3) Bill Graham introduces band before Playing In The Band: We bring them back again. Please without any further ado, the Grateful Dead. (4) Bob Weir, just before Truckin': "Hey, listen, is there anybody here from Turlock tonight? [cheers] When you're in love, the whole world is from Turlock, right?" (5) Timing of Truckin>The Other One: Truckin' {5:11} > Truckin' Jam {2:42} > NBFM Jam {1:00} >Bass and Drum Solo {3:17} tape cut > The Other One {5:06} > Second Verse {1:03} (6) Weir: "Thank you". There's applause after Sugar Magnolia that sounds as if the set has ended. Audience members are screaming more and then the tape cuts. (7) Right before GDTRFB Weir says: I'll take this opportunity to tell you all a story about what happened to me when I was walking down the street in New York City. I was walking into my hotel. I was walking down the street and coming down the other side of the street was this guy with this cigar box. And the cigar box was kind of buzzing and humming. Making all sorts fo noise, all kind of noise and uh and so I stopped him and I asked him, "Pardon me sir. What do you got in that box? I mean you know it's making all that noise, humming and buzzing." And he said, "Well this is my bee collection. It's a collection of bees." I said, "That's a bee collection?" "Yes I have ten thousand bees in here.", he said. I said, "Well you got ten thousand bees in there. Don't they all get crushed?" He said, "Well fuck 'em." (8) Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad does not contain the usual And We Bid You Good Night Jam, it's cut after a couple of notes. (9) Weir: "Thank you all. Good night."

BIODTL is about the worst thing I’ve heard… awful.
Half-Step is slow, then cut.
Mexicali comes in cut, but has a nice feel to it.
Bird Song doesn’t really get me where I would like to go. The finale after the last verse his some pluck to it, but it was too little, too late.
Jack Straw picks up some umph again, well played throughout (and not an easy song to play well)
Cumberland Blues has a small cut in it, but the playing is fantastic, as we expect. They really seem to have it together now. Jerry is on fire.
Box of Rain… the show is now in full swing!
El Paso, Bob gets ahead of himself and lets out some fun hoots and hollers. Nice Garcia!
Don’t Ease features more Garcia greatness on his traditional solos.
Bobby McGee, Bob’s voice has begun to crack a bit.
TN Jed has a great tempo, solid guitar work from Jerome, Phil needs to be cranked up on this source if you have an EQ. This one doesn’t reach quite the heights that some do during the finale, but is enjoyable nevertheless.
Around x2, quick intro notes leads into a nice tempo… another barn burner.
PITB to close the set, after the B Graham intro… solid tempo during the lyrics, Donna seems low enough in the mix to not cause me severe anxiety. By 5 minutes in we have that driven 1972 PITB jam action that I love, and it remains a focused jam for a couple of minutes, and starts exploring around the 8 minute mark. Around 11 minutes Jerry has the tone of an impending Tiger, which is hinted at around 13 minutes… not a lot of time left to pull it off if one considers the reprise, and it doesn’t really come close.

He’s Gone has a slower pace than I would like, but goes into the outro starting at 9:50 with some force. That jam stays on theme until 13:30.
Truckin is pretty typical, with a Nobody’s Jam coming out of the explosion’s rubble. This breaks down into a Billy and Phil self-indulgence period for about 3 minutes.
TOO is listed next, but really it’s an exploratory jam off theme. It’s a groovy little thing. Keith is hinting TOO just before 4 minutes, as Garcia seems still in a blues idea. This is pretty cool, actually, because it’s an example of where you can hear the instruments making their individual, segued changes rather than the one a dime transition. I generally prefer the segue in almost all cases. After the 5 minute mark, with no rolling bomb intro, Bobby starts singing the first verse. By the 10 minute mark the thematic jam is rather chaotic and awesome! Billy is on crack as he pushes the limits, while Garcia noodles on top of everything. Bob is the other star of this… again, wish this source had louder Phil! I can’t adjust the EQ on my current listening device, but if you can, turn him UP. At 11:30 the structure collapses and we slow it way down for an exploratory flirtation with space, which is quite beautiful. The theme comes back into play after the 14 minute mark and we get the last verse just before the immediate end of the song, which goes into Sing Me Back Home. I’d prefer to have had my mind melted more than this before heading into this song.
Sugar Magnolia is what you would expect, as expected.
GDTRFB is great, Garcia puts in some serious noodles, then they end the set by transitioning into OMSN.

JBG is a perfect choice for the encore, leaving your brain smoking.

Overall, great show… the meat sequence was slightly lacking, unfortunately. The first set started slow, but gets great, and the 2nd set was just missing something I can't quite put my finger on...
