US Blues (encore) - Grateful Dead - 4-12-1978 - Duke Univ, Durham, NC Set2-10 Visual

Grateful Dead - U.S. Blues

(I know, already posted, but I think this is an "UPGRADE"). This was a show that, when I was younger (at the time in 1978, 1979...), I simply disregarded. It sounded good but, I admit, the damn "setlist" was just so hum-hum boring. I had lived through too many Estimated ... Eyes ... Wharf Rat (or worse, Black Peter) ... Around² and US Blues (encores) that I just left it on the shelves. It's true though that, after the wild and creative 1977 shows, 1978 was surprisingly conservative in those song selections. I mean gone were the Help - Slip - Franklin's, the Terrapins, Comes a Time, Dancin', Uncle John's among many others ... However, one recent day, I finally sat down to LISTEN to this and notably the set two jam. It is ROCKIN' ! Of course, I did some editing : cropping and contrast adjustments with some usual added visuals ...

    US Blues (encore) : ... Weir pulls out a hunter's whistle ... the song starts, Garcia is bouncing all around and, at 1:10 and waving his hand, rolls out a big 'ol "I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do ?" !!! And again at 2:10 ... and a huuugggge roar at 5:45 ...

    Garcia is ALL over this tune, digging it thoroughly !!!

    Aug 1st : Happy Birthday Jerry

    HOLLY SHIT!!!! Where the hell did you get this? You say it's already posted, I guess it's deep in the YouTube pages. New 2 Me. Man, is Jerry HIGH! TWEAKED! Playing like a real Rocker's Rocker! I've seen him since 1968, Hundreds of shows, & never hyped up at it like this. Look at the way he holds his Guitar. Emphisizing on "Steel Your WIFE!" Rockin' all around the stage. Mr. Center never attraction! Fantastic HUGH THUMBS UP!
