Dead show/podcast for 2/10/12

Inspired - that's the word that comes to mind when I think of this performance.. this is a wonderful piece of work - surely one of the better shows of 1976, and this nearly 2 hour second set features some real gems. Lazy Lightin'>Supplication>Let It Grow.. the slow and beautiful St. Stephen, and the Stella Blue, of course.. oh that Stella Blue.. the end of which will surely melt your heart.
I hope you enjoy this, savor it and remember.... Never had such a good time....

Wow! I've never heard this show. Or anything like it. Garcia's work on "wharf rat>other' alone is unlike anything I've ever heard anyone do. Even him! And thats just 1 slice of the pie!

Excellent show. Played this during an otherwise dreary bus trip from DC to NYC. Made the journey worthwhile and relaxing.

As you note, the St. Stephen is well worth the wait!

thanks for providing this content

Simply amazing. My dog-eared copy of Deadbase says I have this show, but hearing it now is like the first time, light's-all-shining-on-me stuff.

20 years ago I had a partial tape of this 2nd set from the Candy Man to Stella Blue that was the soundtrack to my life for years. Finally wore it out. Awesome to hear this again - what a surprise - and no wonder I thought that 1st set was so perfect!

Thanks Prof

Thanks, Professor! Wharf Rat always works IMO! And the "St. Stephen" is unique for sure!!!
