Build A Set List - The Late 70s
Last week, I started a Build Your Own Set List series. Today, it's time to try one from the late 70's (1976-78), essentially, post-hiatus to pre-Brent. This period is one of the most popular amongst Deadheads, including possibly their best year overall of live music, 1977. They had left their most experimental psychedelic and jazz influenced days behind them, for the most part, and had reformed post-hiatus with a much fuller and more precise sound. With this came, it seems, a shorter list of songs that were in their regular rotation, but with several excellent new songs in the mix.
Same rules apply as from the first in this series. Basically, just try to keep with the basic format of the shows from that time.
Late 70s ('76-'78) Ultimate Set List:
Help On The Way>
They Love Each Other
Brown Eyed Women
Looks Like Rain

Any resemblance to any set this The Grateful Dead may of performed at this time is purely coincidental.
