Morning Dew
One of the best ever
7
Estimated Prophet
Good AUD, Kieth really nice in later jam
19
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
A great, high energy Scarlet. The band was very focused this night. The transition into Fire has a very relaxed feel.
8
Sugaree
Jerry’s guitar simply weeps emotion, and while not the monster of other Spring ’77 renditions, it grabs you by the gut in a viscerally aching way.
17
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
ESSENTIAL Dead material here.
5
Loser
Not Jerry's best solo, but he CRUSHES it vocally
7
Row Jimmy
All the slidey goodness
4
Ramble On Rose
Sweet '77 version!
4
New Minglewood Blues
Can't sleep on this one, underrated tune in an underrated show.
8
Terrapin Station
This is a very sweet Terrapin. Everyone's fired up to play it. All you need to do is watch the vid to see the pure joy this brings Garcia. Memorable.

Good Lovin'
Piping hot delivery, right after Scarlet Fire! Yee-haw! That burgundy-smooth, cinnamon in yer coffee-sweetness of 77 flavor! Mickey thwacking as well
1
Samson and Delilah
You can hear Keith here, giving it a little more giddiness
1
Johnny B. Goode
The last time WNEW broadcast a Dead show at the Cap in Passaic the encore was missed. Station has more patience this time. And it's a ripper!
1
Promised Land
Grateful for the video where we get to see them having fun and nailing it at the end
