Crazy Fingers > Stella Blue
6/26/76 Auditorium Theatre, Chicago, IL
Performing two ballads in a row to a live audience is risky. But when did the Grateful Dead ever follow the rules of mainstream rock and roll anyway?

This Crazy Fingers > Stella Blue sequence is absolutely stunning. Both are played at a slow, soulful pace. Jerry’s delicate vocal delivery is extremely passionate and Team Godchaux brings their A-game. Donna’s sweet vocal harmonies and Keith’s twinkling piano contributions up in the high register are things of pure beauty. The Middle-Eastern jam that floats out of Crazy Fingers has just the right amount of spaciness before dropping into Stella Blue.
