Comments:

the final show in a long tour of spring dates finds the dead in a very mellow mood...they were, no doubt, burned out after many weeks on the road...even so the mellow vibe makes for a really tasty show to listen to when you want some "laid back dead". the half step>franklin's opener is sleepy and slow but very nice to relax to...the looks like rain is one of the better ones i have heard...they really strech it out!

THIS WAS BY FAR MY FAVORITE AND MOST PRIZED MEMORY OF ANY DEAD SHOW- THE WEREWOLVES OF LONDON ENCORE! IF YOU CAN SIMPLY IMAGINE JERRY JUST HOWLING HIS LUNGS OUT 'AAAAOOOOOOOO' ABOUT TWENTY TIMES, IT'S A MOMENT IN TIME ETCHED IN MY MIND FOREVER- GOD, IT WAS SPECTACULAR!

Maybe Jim, but this show produced a highly energized 'best of' NFA's. Outstanding pian play from Keith.
