Start with the 23:55 Lonesome from 1978-02-18. Or start with any of these and spend 71:04 in bliss. I listened to that Lonesome on my white earbuds last night in 320 and thought to myself, put in the CD and listen again. Today link is here
Although I am in the minority, the 1978 version of the Jerry Garcia Band with Jerry, John, Keith and Donna, Maria Muldaur and Buzz Buchanan was my favorite (1977-11-15 to 1978-11-03 maybe 11-04, right LIA and JGMF). What's wrong with 1978 Howard??
1978 was a bit of a let down after the 8 Grateful Dead shows I saw in 1977, but the Jerry Band was smokin' in 1978. I wish I saw more than 1978-03-11 and 1978-03-14. One of the big tapes we listened to all the time back then was the 1978-03-18 Warner Theater in DC, which I am sure you all know by heart.
