in the midst of a summer of incredible shows this one is the "weak sister"...not a whole lot of energy or inspired playing on this one...pretty much an "off night" for the dead imho.

weak night????

did you hear the us blues > us blues jam > promised land?

or the sweet row jimmy? or the completely underrated china >rider?

i suggest you get a better recording cause this is a mighty fine show coming off the hot run peaking with selland 7.19

sure the setlist does not strike one as super sweet (no monster songs) but they combine pairs in great's like one long first set show....


how can u say theirs no monster songs in this setlist your a fool i can see like 5 monster songs at first glance ....row jimmy, playin', china, rider, and even eyes for the E. now you tell me...and as for the guy who said it was an off night well your just a dumb fuck this show kicks ass i dont think their was a such thing as an off night with this band outta all the recordings ive heard I HAVE NEVER EVER HEARD AN OFF NIGHT well atleast not to my ears it all sounds good :)

I really like the Playing in the first set.

Fat does not do justice to the sound of Phil and Jerry in GDTRFB...they were simply on fire and then a slow desecent with Jerry plucking to a stop and next second rips into JBG. I'll take this offnight anytime folks.

Definitely not a weak show... Half Step > Roses is gorgeous, and this is one of only half a dozen or so outings for that combo.

Keith is on Rhodes all night, Billy is inventive, Donna is sparse, and everyone else is locked in.
