Furthur Debuts Jerry Garcia Classic
Last night Furthur made its way to Mansfield, MA as the group continues its late summer tour. The first set saw a debut from the band, as after a take on “Althea,” Furthur moved into “Mission in the Rain.” The Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter composition was recorded for Garcia’s solo album Reflections and after a few performances by the Grateful Dead in 1976 became a staple of the Jerry Garcia Band. In recent years Bob Weir has been performing the song with RatDog.
Here’s a look at last night’s setlist as drawn from our Box Scores section
Set I: Iko Iko, Passenger, Doin That Rag, Loose Lucy, Althea, Mission in the Rain*, Two Djinn, Might as Well
