Sorry, but to be honest, this doesn't come close to the raw musical magic they had been creating since jerry woke up. This show wasn't bad, just lack luster. There were no moments that really grabed my attention. The Crazy Fingers -> Samson was an interesting combo and Around and Around will rock your socks off as usual, but the whole vibe of this show is strange. I guess, the infection of In The Darkers had begun. To bad too, cause the shows with dylan were killer, their sets at least.

If you dig this show, cool, but musically, it was not up to the par the dead had cleary set for themselves in July. Least enjoyable post coma show yet, but the Hell -> Sugaree opener the next night seems to be making up for the bum vibe. Rastafari Bless and have a grate day.

And the First Set song choice didn't really meld well. It wasn't as flowing and continuous as the dead normally play, and the random High Time, no matter how nostalgic it was, was horribly place. Tons of steel and Masterpiece are both mellower songs LRR and Push comes to Shove. So the first set had a too relaxed a center which couldn't be held together. at least the second set was an improvememnt. The next night is a good example of Excellent song choice and First set flow. Check out both for a good comparison run.

The Playin' > China Doll is worth seeking out and listening to. The segue from Playin' into China Doll is magic and this version of China Doll has a very soaring quality to it.
