Stella Blue was performed instrumental with Steve Kimock on pedal steel. This gig featured the first known performance of Alligator by a member of The Grateful Dead since April 29, 1971. Alligator contained a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Dark Star, St. Stephen, and Mike’s Song were teased prior to Bertha. Ripple was performed acoustic. Donna Jean Godchaux provided additional vocals for Bertha, Scarlet Begonias, Fire on the Mountain, and Ripple.

Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads Though the jams aren't as a rule as long as the previous night's, there's still quite a bit of emotional resonance to be found here. Page takes the vocal lead on Franklin's Tower to delightful effect, and then you get two almost consecutive hymns to the much-beloved Jerry Garcia, with Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here as well as an instrumental version of Stella Blue with Steve Kimock on pedal steel guitar. I personally feel like Phil's vocals sound great here, especially since Trey seems to struggle a bit with the lilting rhythms of Tennessee Jed and Fire on the Mountain. Chalk Dust Torture, though, displays some "Phishy" jamming towards the end that makes me satisfied that Phil looked carefully to include Page and Trey into this incarnation of Phil Lesh and Friends, and also to generally seek a meld of the styles on display, including those of his own as well as Kimock's and John Molo's. It's worth pointing out, I think, that Molo really holds his own on a catalogue that's built primarily for dual drummers.

Abe_Froman The couple of minutes of music as Prince Caspian fades and St. Stephen starts is one of my favorite music moments. Unbelievable.

PHATTSKIS Could be my favorite concert of all time and I have seen a few. Everything that night was stellar. Everything was well played, the jams were awesome, and the addition of Donna Jean really made the night extra-special. The second set blend of PHiSH and old Grateful Dead music was incredible. So pleased to have been there! Track down a copy of this show, if not all three of these Warfield Phil and Phriends shows.

Review by RunawayJim4180

RunawayJim4180 Having attended Fare Thee Well and several Dead & Co shows over the last 8 years, I keep returning to these shows as the quintessential post-Dead incarnation. Trey and Kimock have outstanding chemistry throughout, Molo is a beast on drums, Phil is on point both vocally (yes, really) and on bass as per usual, and Page really shines on baby grand.

The Franklin's Tower from this show is the best version any band associated with the Dead has played besides Jerry & Co. themselves. An absolute rainbow of sound from start to finish.
