REVIEW: In the shadow of the moon…
Another great show from early ’78. The January shows are particularly good and they lead
up to the great performances of 2/3 and 2/5 of that year. A bright and focused sound
throughout, especially during Terrapin Station. I wouldn’t go without any show from Jan.
’78.

REVIEW: 1-31-78
Exellent both in performance and sound quality. Thanks Charlie.

REVIEW: Uptown
Superb Scarlet>Fire! Great show all around.
January ’78 was a good month!

REVIEW: 2nd set lights the fire
phils up in the mix, love donna shows they make the S>F transfer buttery smooth

REVIEW: This show is HOTT!!!!
Crystal clear sound. Superb playin’. Highlights for this head are: Tenn Jed
TLEO, Scar-Fire, Terrapin…Enjoy….

REVIEW: Better Than Expected
This show was surprisingly good (I don’t particularly like 1978 as a whole), and a lot of
the songs that sounded best to me are not songs that I’m terribly interested in hearing all
of the time.
For instance, Minglewood really smoked, and Keith sounded interested in playing. Ditto
for They Love Each Other. The Scarlet/Fire (which is a typical favorite), while not the
best ever, was high-quality throughout. Even Good Lovin at the end was fun to listen to.
I’d recommend this show if you aren’t looking for a way out-there vibe, but just some
good songs well played.

REVIEW: Philin it up!
This is a wonderful representation of the Greatful Dead. You can hear the patience that
can only come from playing night after night to an auidience of one.

REVIEW: Incredible Sound Q
Worth the stars just for that. (To be super picky there is some diginoise during LIG.) They
Love Each Other through Playing In The Band is very good GD.

REVIEW: Pretty rare…
For Phil to be singing in this era.

REVIEW: Really Hot and Smoking
More great January shows from the 22nd and following

REVIEW: Get on the Bus !
Really strong playing from the boys on this one!
and super vocals from Donna and Bobby to help get us over Jerry’s bout with laryngitis.
Many great reviews below to showcase the song highlights. IMHO, an excellent
Passenger deserves a shoutout too !!!

Candyman patched from AUD>Cm>Reel>CD using Samplitude.
