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)

JGB's After Midnight>Eleanor Rigby>After Midnight Reigns Supreme in Oswego February 17, 1980


JGB Brought It This Cold Night in Upstate New York with After Midnight and an Eleanor Rigby sandwich and also Positively Fourth Street, Catfish John, Deal, Let It Rock, It Takes Alot to Laugh
and the show was endless. As is the Student Newspaper Coverage of the Show. I'd see the show nine nights later with Rick Sullivan (who I still talk to 40 years later!) from the front row at the Ocean State in Providence  and see Tiger Rose, Promontory Rider with Robert Hunter in the JGB, but I'd trade it for this show. Heres 2-17-80   According to JGMF http://jgmf.blogspot.com/2016/02/quite-little-cash-cow-jgb-early-1980.html, this show brought the Band a cool $10,000.

Note that Dead wordsmith supreme Howard Weiner devotes Chapter 4 of his Positively Garcia book about this show, calling it one of the best Garcia Band shows ever (4th!) and since you really should support Dead writers, I'll only give you a snapshot of his writing below. Just buy his books!

Also please thank Keith Gatto for recording this show. It's a wonderful audience.
