Wharf Rat
May 25, 1974
Campus Stadium, UCSB

Jerry’s opening notes capture the essence of the song/ the Wharf Rat’s vibe, as they simultaneously convey -- I may be out here in the cold and down-trodden by the docks, but I’m willing to get up and fly away – or at least try, anyway. No worries about the dime; thanks for listening.

Campus Stadium, UCSB

And the passage after the final lyrics is collective magic and quintessential listening. Everybody is all over it. Weir is just tossing in the coolest shit here.

Fantastic Eyes. Reminds me of 11/5 and 6/8/77 in its wanderings. Great drift out of it too.
