Just downloaded from Further. Get this show! The 1st set is one of the best I've heard. Best I've heard Jerry's voice in '85.

Sounds like a Cal gig to me! I just picked this up, and they come out of the gates like rabid dogs.

I
Saturday Night-short version but it's the first song!
Music-low level Phil bombs throughout
II
Comes A Time-3rd time played in 85 after 5 year absence.

Comes A Time-Check out Garcia's vocals. Tattering on disaster at times but always endeavouring to persevere. The solo's are quite excellent.

Brent does justice to Chuck Barry in with several styles of play in Around and Around. The boys are tight as hell on this one and after a pick up change or Garcia's axe, they get into a Phil laden groove with top notch solo's midway through for Sugar Magnolia. Slow going mid 2nd set w/the old songs being brought out of the closet but the old standards had 'em in boogie chillen mood w/the seemingly neverending solo's.

... Lets not forget the train rolling by during Fire... great show

Saturday>Fire: What I like is that although Fire is 13 minutes long, they do a great job of making it a 1st set song.

Durpee's... was Dupree's

Walkin' Blues: This version(and the Greek in June) ruined it for me the rest of the time I was seeing the Dead. Brilliant

Mama Tried: "working hours without rest..." Bill and Mickey change from rock to cut time... fucking up Bob. LOL!

Big River: Just remember bouncing round the bleachers, with Stacy, that girl that would be my girlfriend, or not... but I love you anyway Stacy... YES!

Birdsong: Lovely. But frankly, I have no recollection that they played this song. With that being said. I'm sure I danced

MNS: My favorite 1st set closer. They pulled it out here. I think Frost in april was better, but yay.

Touch of Grey: Great garage band version. Gimme this over any post "in the dark" versions any day.

Women are Smarter: That's Right

Terrapin: While Jerry remembers more lyrics, I loved the year before too much.

The Wheel: Bound to cover just a little more ground

That's it....: Having been at the Greek the month before, I wanted the reprise too.

Comes a Time... Best? Worst? Middle? Like Stella and China Doll, You just sang this song with tears in your eyes

Around and Around - Sugar Mag E: USB... Great closers...

Next to Sunday '84, the best Ventura show.
