Steve-O: As a matter of fact, I was enjoying this 2nd night of a 3 night run, but could not post until the very end.

I
Half Step>Franklin's-Chilled out version(1/2 Step)to start off this 11 song first set!

Stranger-Nice verbal back and forth between Bobby & Brent

Candyman-middle part of the standard 1st set mini country and western sweet. Jerry's voice and axe are worked marvels.

II
Sailor>Saint>Ship>Estimated>Eyes. Only time this combo played. Jerry for the most part took the soulful songs for this set and show overall.

Truckin-"sex change" lyric within chorus

Truckin>Black Peter-Truckin ends with a slow blues crawl into a short spacy jam and into slow funky Brent organ. Top notch fills by Brent along with Jerry's masterful guitar work.

Saturday Night-Not on tape

E: Brokedown-Falst start but still a sheer delight to walk out of the Coliseum, especially when cased by the FEDS unfortunately.

Sat 5th Row Center, owed to a couple of Miracles found on the ground on Thursday night. Loved the show made sweeter by the shear miracle I was there to experience it and then to be 5 rows back made it even sweeter still.

A great Saturday Night show at The Nausea Mausoleum. And if I remember correctly, this was when Bob Weir substituted "ever since she went and had her sex change" for "living on reds, vitamin c and cocaine" during Truckin'. Wasn't a big fan of that change, but I am glad they eventually went back to the original.
