Spencer Davis also sat in for CC Rider. Horsnby sat in for the Encore. Great show. The first show that I trully understood.

"I'm a Man" was sweet; it was precluded by a huddle. Hornsby was also in there somewhere during JS-C/R (maybe all 3) as I remember. These were 3 sick shows, the crowd was just aching for Dark Star each night but never got it. As each second set started, or each second set song concluded, you could feel the anticipation. Heavy.

C.C. Rider-Last Brent era version, quite interesting with Bruce sitting in on this version.

brent mydland rules, reigns, and lives forever. He shone just a little light and then blew away much too quickly.

Listening to this show on GD Radio. I had never heard this one before and saw that it was from '89. I had to double check the date of the show during Sugaree because I heard Hornsby's accordian. I was confused because I know I heard Brent's keys on Bucket.

I came here and got the answer. I did not realize that Hornsby had sat-in with the boys prior to Brent's passing. It was very eerie to here Hornsby and Brent together.

Fantastic show. The first set just oozes with energy, even victim had a nice shine to it. The two spencer davis tunes to close were very nice. Normally there are few guests who blend well with the band, but Spencer and Hornsby are two of the most compatible. Bruce definitely had jerry's eye since this was the third, i believe, show he guested on. And i have an interview Jerry and Bobby did on KLOS 95.5 fm where jerry says he was helping Bruce with his bands new album. The interview was great. The questions people asked were very intriguing. And at one point, bobby says the one thing i've been trying to tell people for a while. "People must have been listening with their preconceived notions rather then listening to the tune". A comment on why he played Misty as an Encore at one of the Bob Weir and JGB shows. Spot on. They were just talkin about how much they still love playing, and the fact they were watching a Niners game while doing the interview just made it more hilarious.

As for the second set, very interesting pre drums. The jack straw opener was quite a Surprise (usually a first set opener) and the I know You Rider has a jam in the middle where jerry just completely ignores his "headlight" verse for the sake of a play between him and Bruce. Definitely shines a light on the coming connection between the two. The MSWS rocked my brain with a fun little trade off between Brent Jerry and Bruce. It has a Carnival dance party vibe to it that i hadn't heard before. The post drums was a nice draw down of the show with a very soulful Stella into one of the chillest GL's i've ever heard. The Encore has an interesting count off to it, with jerry teasing the rest of the band, and the folks in attendance, for a minute before finally starting the tune. The 80's may have had their moments, but the boys were havin fun at almost every show they played. This one and the two before it were very relaxed but still high energy. almost as if they were just letting the music flow from the crowd to their hands and creating a cycle of good vibes through sound.

The interview also had another really funny moment, where a fan asks if they're planning on bringing back anymore of the old tunes, like lost sailor and saint. Bobby says he's gonna try and revamp the tunes, and jerry jokingly says, "Bobby's been sayin that for years now". Just goes to show how a bunch of guys playing good music for the sake of music can be so much fun. This band never ceases to amaze me, even through recordings the beauty still shines bright as the sun.
