Unsung UC Santa Barbara Show Feb 27: Second of 1977

What's up southern Cal?  David Lemieux says there are two 1977 shows with board tapes in the Vault now and they are this one from Santa Barbara and the June 4 show at the Shrine Forum (thanks Dudley) near DTLA.

Lucky there is a shark audience (one only) on the archiveSony ECM-280> Sony TC-153SD ACM> R>DAT> CDR taped by Dr. Rob Bertrando; via Raoul Duke; Seeded to etree by Matt Vernon.

I like this show because it still has one foot in 1976 (Half Step, Music Never Stops and standalone Scarlet to close the first set with a St Stephen, NFA and Dew in the second), but also showcases Estimated in the middle of set one and Terrapin into that Morning Dew in set two.

I still was in high school during this show so no way I could get from Andover to California. I'd have to wait eight weeks to see the Springfield show, my 4th after 3 in 1976.

Very few archives I've found from this one, but at least two amazing Ed Perlstein photos exist:

Belli Deli

The Deli on Phil's Shirt was  2 miles from where I lived Summer '79
This was my favorite Jerry look

There is a bit more info and a great review on the archive from Mind Wondrin' which I present here.
I like the flavor from being at the show added (listen).
