I also agree the Comes A Time from 05/09/77 is amazing, but the version that really 'got me' was from 10/03/76.
The 2nd set was one of the first Dead tapes I had. This version on the LMA is the same recording: ... sbeok.shnf

Check out 7/17/76- it was the Sirius noon show yesterday. The solo coming out of Comes a Time goes places I never heard them go before. Drifts into an odd (literally) time signature, very introspective, gets jazzy. Riveting. The whole second set after that really takes off.

Agreed. Summer 1985 is a great Comes a Time--Riverbend. That entire summer tour was a treat.

I first heard the song at Red Rocks on 9/7/85. The best concert I've ever been to. It really spoke to me. I remember hearing the long lead lines wiping around in the Colorado winds, in and out of focus. "Only love can fill"
