Asked to describe the Grateful Dead's music, Garcia is reported to have quipped, “We were great for seconds on end.” (stolen from Cubensis site)

Fare Thee Well Day Three: July 5, 2015

So when you open with China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider and then plump into Estimated you feel like you are in the beginning of a nice second set. But in Chicago for the "last show" this was the start of the first set of the last show.  The highlight for me was Truckin>Cassidy (which is playing in the background), i am just a fan of the weird and unusual.

This was the "greatest hits' show, the one released independently of the three show box set which just arrived at the Davis house yesterday(still waiting for the blu ray of the whole run). So instead of an era show like the first four, we got a show of better known Dead songs like the first three, Samson, Throwing Stonesm, Terrapin, Unbroken Chain and a powerful ending of Not Fade Away, Touch of Grey and then a beautiful Attics of My Life to end it all (well "end it" until the John Mayer tour started three months later :)
