This week we have some great fun from the second set of the Dead's performance at the Milkweg in Amsterdam, Netherlands back on October 16th, 1981. This week we get to hear the electric set of this impromptu performance, when the band played on borrowed instruments in a club environment. This set is very much a Bobby dominated set, with the boys opening with a nice Playin' in the Band. Then they pull out 'Hully Gully' for the one and only time they ever played it.. this goes into the Wheel, then Bobby takes over for a Samson and Delilah. This then goes into Gloria, and then, for the first time in over 10 years, Bobby leads the boys into a Lovelight. From there they seque into Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad before returning to Playin' In the Band. A nice long Black Peter follows, then the boys end the evening with a spirited Sugar Magnolia.. No encore, but from everything I've read, none was needed. A special evening from all accounts.
