This was my first Rex benefit, and along with the next night, the only Grateful Dead shows I ever saw at the famed Warfield in San Francisco.

I have never seen it mentioned, but this is the only Dead show that I know of post 1974 in which Jerry does The Tiger (you know, that crazy thing he does in the space from '72-'74). Right at the end of the space, Jerry does a little Tiger cub & then into The Wheel they go. Good stuff.


Listen and Comment and Enjoy a Show where Phil took Jill and Dave took Vera. Charlie Miller's Flac is Here
