I’m pretty sure BCB’s own The Fish was at that show.

This is a wonderful turn up for the books. Such a revered occasion. This place seems to have everything covered

Little overrated in my deadhead book. I didn't see them live until Dick Pick's 15
7/3/77 - Englishtown, NJ

However consider their 69-71 period to be their best although they have amazing shows thru out their career.

Keep on Truckin!

It's silly to go on about how lousy they covered that song though. It is, after all, only one song. The rest of the show is still great. The fact that The Who did not one, but two shit covers of James Brown songs doesn't ruin the My Generation album for me.

It may or may not be be silly, but you have misread the thread.

Because it ultimately works for me.
In that case.
