This week we feature the second set from the band's 15th Anniversary show which took place on June 8th, 1980 at Folsom Field at the University of Colorado in Boulder Colorado. A very nice 'Feel Like A Stranger' opens things up, and I think it contains more than its usual share of Garcia explorations.. 'Ship of Fools' follows, it always struck me as almost anthem-like in how it skates over the edges of politics... much needed these days.. 'Estimated Prophet' marks the start of the meat of this set.. the jam gets out there quickly and before we know it Garcia leads us into the 'Eyes of the World' that follows. This version is a real scorcher.. blasting along before shifting into the rhythms that flow into Drums and Space.. 'Saint of Circumstance' leads into a quieter but beautiful 'Black Peter'.. Sugar Mag ends the set, but the boys return for a double encore, which reaches it's apex with a nice 'Brokedown Palace'.
