Saturday Dead: 6.9.76

Words By J-man

Boston loves the Dead. Listen to the first couple of notes on the second set opener, "Saint Stephan" and listen to the response from the crowd. This is the stuff of dreams. Thirteen minutes later after a blissful set opener, the band transitions right into "Eyes of The World" into a classic jam, into "Let it Grow>Drums>Let it Grow" before taking a breather. What a fantastic second set with impeccable transitions and jams. I recognize that it's only the second set, but damn it's good.

Grateful Dead Live at Boston Music Hall on June 9, 1976.

Set One (Not Included): Cold Rain & Snow, Cassidy, Scarlet Begonias, The Music Never Stopped, Crazy Fingers, Big River, They Love Each Other, Looks Like Rain, Ship of Fools, Promised Land

Set Two: Saint Stephen-> Eyes Of The World-> Let It Grow-> Drums-> Let It Grow, Brown Eyed Women, Lazy Lightning-> Supplication, High Time, Samson & Delilah, It Must Have Been The Roses, Dancin' In The Streets-> Wharf Rat-> Around & Around

Encore: Franklin's Tower

The highlights from that point on include "Samson & Delilah," "It Must Have Been The Roses" and the encore, "Franklin's Tower." This show was not as much about the set list for me, but more so about the jams.

Enjoy this high energy show!
