The band topped all of that, however, by finishing the set with a trio of knockout punches. At its conclusion, Lesh took a then-rare solo accompanied by the drummers, and it’s impossible not to love it—particularly since it led right to the funk and a definitive version of the Grateful Dead’s “disco” arrangement of “Dancing In The Streets” that contained a Garcia guitar solo for the ages.

Brent Mydland – keyboards (1979-1990) So far, so normal, but after around 15 minutes, the band backed off to create an on-the-spot opportunity for Lesh to deliver one of the most gloriously unkempt bass solos in the history of rock ‘n’ roll.
