Here's that setlist: (not necessarily in order, but pretty close)

Crash on the Levee
It Takes a Lot to Laugh...
Tamborine Man *
Baby Blue *
Tears of Rage *
Masters of War *
She Belongs to Me
Highway 61 
E: Rolling Stone

* acoustic

Bob was well aware of his audience:
Half the songs have been covered by the dead 
and one of the others (Silvio) was co-written by Robert Hunter
Not to mention that Silvio was the only post-1969 song.
Anyway, he was great and seemed like he was having a good time.
Hopefully he'll play a song or two with Jerry at Giants.

Subject: Highgate, VT - 6/15/95 From: Peter W. Callas, Date: Fri, 16 Jun 1995 14:57:02 GMT Well, someone's going to have to help me with the setlist. That's what happens when you go to a Dylan/Dead show with Dead fans -- we missed the beginning of Dylan because they wanted to hang out in the parking lot. Anyway, I do remember acoustic was Mr Tambourine Man; Masters of War; Baby Blue (first two without guitar), and the following set included Memphis Blues; She Belongs to Me; Hwy 61; and encore of Rolling Stone. Bob certainly seemed to be having a good time, and even the people I was with were impressed at being able to understand the words. I thought Bob might hang around to play an encore with the Dead, but right before Hwy 61 he said something like, "Well, we've gotta get out of here. Gotta beat the traffic." Which is true if he's playing in Boston tonight. I saw someone in the crowd a bit in front of me holding up a rose, but I couldn't make my way up to her. Anyone from r.m.d?

She Belongs to Me Highway 61 Encore: Like A Rolling Stone No Jerry even thought they were hugging off the right side of the stage as Bob walked off to find JG giving him a standing ovation. A short set, but exactly what you come to expect from an opening act for the Dead just the recent/biggest hits that the non-fans will recognize. The band did play well and Bob sounded as well as he has on other recent big shows (Woodstock, Unplugged), though it seemed a little less inspired and the crowd wasn't that into it especially the acoustic stuff...

Callas" (pcallas@MOOSE.UVM.EDU) Subject: Highgate 6/15/95 setlist Okay, I'll follow up my previous post with what I think is the complete setlist for Highgate, VT, 6/15/95: Down in the Flood It Takes a Lot to Laugh...

There are many conflicting lists here and on the dead board. Even the Boston Globe doesn't seem to have gotten it right. The latest had Bobby doing Dignity there. Was it Dignity or Tears of Rage (mentioned more than once) or both? Thanx in advance for your help. Christine (Consolvo)

A half-hour into Dylan's set, the fence was pulled down by ticketless fans and the authorities decided to let everyone in. Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" brought the crowd to its feet. His "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "masters of War" were acoustic with harmonica, and he pulled out all the stops with "Like a Rolling Stone." (Stuff about the Dead.) Dylan's set list: Down in the flood It takes a lot ot laugh, it takes a train to cry Watchtower Tears of Rage Silvio Mr. Tambourine Man masters of War Baby Blue Memphis Blues Again She Belongs to Me Highway 61 Like a Rolling Stone (Dead's set list)
