A Smokin show! Love to listen and Listen And Listen some more.
Jerry sounds a little haggard but rips another pleasant evening.

Morning Dew ends the second set, not the first set.

a nice touch>stranger>franklin's opener. the playin' was pretty spacey. a rare post-space he's gone, and a sweet dew. JBG was rockin'. we can run and standing on the moon are debuts. before the show, they set up a volleyball net and had a game between bay area celebs and deadheads from different states.

1st show of 89 and boy do the boys sound rusty crusty. Althea/Desolation Row the highlights from the 1st set.
2nd set is a sleeper with a forgettable Morning Dew. Jerry and Bobby are barely playing at the start but Phil filled in as much as possible. JBG is done before the first exhale. This is no 7.19.89 by far.

Got to agree with Brian's assessment. They were not into it from the beginning. Highlights of the show were Space>Dew including a lackluster He's Gone. Very rarely would I include 'I Will Take You Home' and 'Miracle' as show highlights, but that's what they gave us on this night.

Touch -> Stranger -> Franklin's - meh, standard versions of all. The only really high point was right at the transition between stranger and franklins. It just hits a vibe that will show up now and again at this show.

Althea was a fine performance by all and the WCR wasn't too bad for a first time around.

Desolation row sounded like it was gonna be Maggies farm befor Bobby nixes it. guess he forgot the words.

Don't ease was fun as usual. Overall and average First set.

CRAS -> MSWS - opened the second set up in a big way, but the standing on the moon is where the second really settles into itself. Jerry is in another dimension during Moon and the last chorus brought tears to my eyes. Then playin dried them real quick, only to have them eventually come back during Take you home. Brent is so soulful it just hit the heart strings. The random He's Gone kept missing the launch pad and never really did anything until the ;last few seconds before miracle. Miracle was pretty good, with some tight jams from Jerry. Then the 15 min. Dew that ends the second set isn't much to talk about. They didn't screw up, nor did they make any truely brilliant moments. they didn't really do anything with it. just got lost in the jams a few times, which were pretty chilling, but not exciting.

Thankfully JBG Comes down for the encore and rocks the house properly. Meh show. Some high moments and low ones, I'd Call it average.

1st Standing On The Moon

Bobby and Phil tease Stuck Inside of Mobile, not Maggie's Farm, before Desolation Row.
