I made it to only one, the Cow Palace in '76.

Soundhole opened. Santana lit up the place. The Dead did what they were supposed to.

The cd version is way better than I remember the show to have been.

Not that it should make you feel better, but so did livephish. although it was fixed after set I, which they re-played right after the live cast ended. Not a bad arrangement for NYE parties on the left coast.
