Anyone that is, or ever was a Deadhead, has most likely heard the saying: ”They’re not the best at what they do, they’re the only ones that do what they do.” This was obviously the truth, but I can certainly attest to the fact that Dark Star Orchestra’s should be: “They’re doing the best at what they (The Grateful Dead) did, and are the only ones that can do so now.”
This particular night was actually pretty special to me as I was floored through mid-first set and realized they were playing one of my all time favorite shows, which happened to be from The Palladium in NYC on May 4th, 1977, and they were doing it ever so perfectly.
This night’s setlist, again is a recreated show from NYC’s The Palladium from 5/4/1977 and contains the following:
Set One: Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo > Big River ; They Love Each Other ; New Minglewood Blues ; It Must Have Been The Roses ; Cassidy ; Deal ; Looks Like Rain ; Brown Eyed Women ; Dancing In The Street
Set Two: Estimated Prophet ; Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain ; Terrapin Station > Playing In The Band > Comes A Time > Playing In The Band
Filler: Strange Men
