Saturday Dead: 4.24.78
Words By J-man
Happy holidays to you and yours! Why listen to Christmas songs when you could listen to Jerry and the boys to celebrate holidays with family? This gem from Illinois State University in 1978 boasts one of the better setlists and quality recordings of that era. This often overlooked show features a setlist of incredible songs with mind-blowing jams and transitions. Look at the set... I don't need to tell you to listen all of the way through.
