The best Sugar Magnolia EVER
-


Healy had the levels only on the vocals for the most part of Jack Straw, which is always an interesting listen. 4th to last Passenger...kinda of kewl to hear Brent take Donna's line. Excellent sequence Scarlet>Fire Lost>Saint, only played 4 more times afterward as well.

If anyone knows of a better Sugar Magnolia ANYWHERE, please let me know...

The best Sugar Magnolia was New Years 1978/1979 at the Winterland. But this is awesome of course.

Saw this show as a Sailor in the USN.
A genuine Dead Head & a hell of an MM from San Fran arranged the sale of 100 tickets to our ship.
What a great time !
Thanks Wild Bill.

2nd set gives your classic 77 then pre-retirement standards. Spanish Jams are rare and any Don't Ease is a treat. A Jerry favorite and sign his was on top of his game to the last chord!

Scarlet>-Brent's Hammond's tubey play keeps Jerry on is feet all song long. An overall peppy version. Phil's thick ham-bone resonance is not to be overlooked. Back to Brent, his girly voice truly works well. First class version with Jerry completely "on fire" to start the the 2nd set!

Fire>heavy phil, smooth & thick as fresh paint. Brent excellent melodies perfectly transitioning for Donna and improving all around. Jerry voice crystal clear. Wah Wah pedal with solos that are all encompassing of creation and there-on.

Brent's omnipresence Hammond ....presence.

As if 7/4/89 Buffalo where Jerry & Brent lock eyes, this show is indicative of the bond these two made early on. The interplay is spectacular and the jentes y mujeres en Espana got a treat for the ages. "Dude, it's just the firs few songs..."
