Larry Mishkin discusses a Grateful Dead concert from February 5, 1978, held at the Uni Dome at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. He emphasizes the exceptional performance, particularly focusing on the Scarlet Begonias and Fire on the Mountain combo, which he compares favorably to the renowned Barton Hall show from May 1977. Larry praises the guitar work of Jerry Garcia and highlights the unique qualities of this less-discussed but outstanding 1978 show. Additionally, he briefly touches on recent music news, including the Dead and Company's residency at The Sphere in Las Vegas and the upcoming Days Between event at Jazz Fest in New Orleans, featuring Government Mule and other legendary musicians.
