Last night at Terrapin Crossroads, Furthur members Phil Lesh, John Kadlecik, Joe Russo and Jeff Chimenti teamed up with guitarist Anders Osborne for a West Coast Ramble. Osborne had already made his mark at last month’s Spring Rambles with Luther Dickinson, but seemed to have picked up where he left off from those memorable shows.
The first set was filled with treats such as Anders-sung covers of Ramblin’ Man by the Allman Brothers Band, Neil Young’s Heart Of Gold and Bob Marley’s I Shot The Sheriff as well as Grateful Dead rarity Reuben and Cerise. In addition to Reuben and Cerise, John Kadlecik handled vocals on Grateful Dead staples Deal, Ramble On Rose and They Love Each Other.
Set One: Deal (jk), Ramblin’ Man (ao), Reuben And Cerise (jk) > Sugaree (ao), Ramble On Rose (jk), Heart Of Gold (ao), They Love Each Other (jk), I Shot The Sheriff (ao)

The second set opened with an interesting segment that saw the ensemble insert a cover of The Harder They Come into the usual Scarlet > Fire pairing. Then, the band went into Primal Dead mode for a Dark Star > The Other One > Dark Star > St. Stephen sequence before ending the set with the Anders-sung Midnight Hour. Osborne had a chance to show off one of his originals as Burning On The Inside served as the encore.
