What Will We Play If Jerry Can't Sing, January 7-8, 1978

Mr. Garcia had vocal problems for the kick off shows of 1978. He doesn't sing, so Bobby does a pre-Ratdog-ish Bobby-only jams. But Jerry does not take the night off  as he cooks on guitar these two nights for less than 4,000 fans each show in Golden Hall in San Diego.

I always wondered what would Jerry choice if  Bobby couldn't sing one night but I we already know:

Sugaree, Comes A Time, China Doll and then Eyes of the World>Wharf Rat>Terrapin Station>Morning Dew

These are fun little one-off (actual two-off) ditty's where Bobby had to play rock star all night long.
It's too bad Bobby didn't get Marty Robbins to come over and duet on the encore on the second night.
