Dead Show/podcast for 5/13/11

This Friday the 13th we're in for a real treat as we get to enjoy the second set of the Grateful Dead's performance at the Boston Gardens on May the 7th, 1977. The second set opens with a splendid Terrapin Station into Sampson, and while the entire set is quite good, what really sends me over the top is the fabulous Wheel->Wharf Rat.. one for the ages to be sure..

What a good set, not my fav tunes (but I still luv'em) but the execution is almost flawless.

does anyone know where to find this show on cd?

Yes, a flawless show, to borrow someone else's phrase. The whole band is firing on all pistons tonight, both instrumentally and vocally, and playing so well together. Although it doesn't quite seem fair to highlight any one band member's contribution, I am especially compelled to give a shout out to Billy K. for that absolutely righteous drum solo!
