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) Oh thanks for the one million page views here. In 2020, I'll mostly be fishin'

Just A Little Nervous At Penn State: On Spring Tour in 1979

A lot of people have been nervous at Penn state, as were we when we rolled on May 8, 1979 for show #5 in 6 days.

The beginning:

Promised, They Love, Mama> Mexicali, Brown Eyed, All Over Now, Row , El Paso, Stagger Lee

The middle (pure late-1970's gold):

Lazy Lightning-> Supplication-> Deal , Scarlet Begonias-> Fire, Samson & Delilah, 

The Jam (with John Cippolina out of the blue):

Terrapin Station-> Playin' > Drums-> The Other One-> China Doll-> Playin'> Good Lovin', 

E: Shakedown Street (nice choice!)   It's all here kids
