  1. Shakedown Street

REVIEW: Beautiful
Garcia’s solos are focused and inspired.

REVIEW: This is one of the best shows on the archive!
Mexicali Blues is definitely NOT missing on this recording. The 2 Passenger error is kind of a treat. This
version of passenger will steal your face. If you are a simple listener, 2 times through this version will not bother
you, I swear! Both sets are just splendid! The recording is so beautiful you will weep, I swear! The interplay
between Jerry and Bob must be heard. From Half-Step through Shakedown–they are in lock step. You can just
really hear the difference between an “on” night and the “off” listening to a show like this. Brent is just bringin’
it less than 90 days after taking his seat at the keys. Fun, fun, fun!! Sugaree fans—STOP and LISTEN! A second
set super version awaits along w/ a magical Terrapin and poignant and powerful Playin’. The backwater of set 2
goes from a placid pond to class 5 whitewater…..

REVIEW: Great Passenger
Can’t believe I would ever use that two words together, but this version is really great! I thought
Half-Step>Franklins, Sugaree and the post-D/S portion of the show were the main highlights.

REVIEW: Only 2 months?
This sbd show is a must hear. Besides the cut intro of PITB, it is an excellent SBD! This is a “basic” Dead show
. It is definitely a crossover show, where the feel is typical of a keith & donna show, but it has that ‘Brent’
sound!!! I cannot believe Brent had only been with the band a little over 2 months? BTW….. The ENCORE is
my favorite Shakedown Street out there!

REVIEW: welcome brent
jam into stella is wonderful and a nice nobody’s fault tease after truckin with a very nice jam into around &

REVIEW: Classic Dead
Hard to beat a 1/2 Step> Franklin’s opener! Worth the wait in the pouring rain already. It never let down from
there either. Slighty rare second set Sugaree. Garcia was a bit mellow and it felt more “touching” (stella,
sugaree, terrapin)I thought but played well. Space took me “out there as far as I care to go” and drop me off at
Stella’s doorstep gently. Truckin’ brought us back to earth and signaled the adventure was coming full circle.
Shakedown as the encore was a delightful finishing touch.

REVIEW: 1st show
So glad to see this. Seattle ’79 was my first of many many shows. The Passenger to end set one sealed the deal.
The bus came by and I got on!

REVIEW: Second Set Rocks and is a definate 5 –
I listened to this a second time to make sure friends… Sugaree sampson very hot playin into a great and trippy
drums space into stella blue?? then truckin and hot nobody’s jam which dances along into around & around and
ranks as one of the cooler post ’78 jams I have heard in a while – This is a great show and worth the listen + nice
find and a new favorite. It’s weird they kick freeking ass in this show and they did not play much at all that
