“If there is such a thing as a “classic” Dead show, this might be it. Beautifully recorded and featuring a wide variety of styles and musicianship, this performance is proof of why the Dead achieved such a long and successful musical legacy. Recorded at Passaic, NJ’s legendary Capitol Theater on November 24th, 1978, between 1976’s Terrapin Station and 1980’s radio friendly Go to Heaven, the Dead are in top form and good spirits, delivering this beautiful set of memorable originals and choice covers.”

It should be noted that Jerry Garcia had problems with his voice that evening. You can listen to the show here: http://archive.org/details/gd78-11-24.sbd.prefm.13948.sbefail.shnf
