wow, the scarlet/fire here is just absolutely mind blowing. it is the hidden track on Dick's Picks 13. Over 35 mins long. Keith's playing (Keith was still on the boards in 79 right?) in the transition is just incredible and Jerry shows the best of both worlds with mind boggling speed and then slows it down to leave the listener dumbfounded with how slow he plays on the fire intro.

my mistake, brent on the boards. damn he was wild in his early days

We used to play for acid, now we play for clive..... think its this show.

In my opinion, the scar->fire is pretty mellow. Jerry picks pretty agressively, but the rest of the band is just chilling; laying down a foundation on which the picking is layered. During later scar->fires the foundation is much more interesting; more dynamic.

Time after time my hands just keep reaching for this. The Scarlet->Fire rings in at the second longest (10-14-94: Slightly longer) Paired together.
Brent and Jerry just have this wonderful spacey time crawling into the Fire. Dick's Picks 13... Jerry was also pairing with Ozzie Alhers (JGB) at this time. Turn out the light start this wnderful experience. Smiles awiat.

Candyman/LLRain-Jerry up and down the fret board with choice licks
Easy To Love You-Clear Brent voice
9th of 10 times they played this sequence. Scarlet starts out with heavy Brent insted of Jerry and seamless transition to Fire.
Long Islanders got a treat this night fans.

I attended Maria Regina DHS for 4 years, across the street and we always cut and got tickets. My oldest brother went the night before and to this day gripes that at my first show they played U.S. Blues. Nothing like it, 'Phish' people are great folks however there was nothing like a Grateful Dead concert. The camping, vendors, followers and such would set up a world not unlike a medieval faire.

Bob sings “we use to play for silver, now we play for Clive” in Jack Straw on this night. This would have been my selection for 30 Trips box set. If the ship was sinking & I could jump into a life boat with every show during the Weldnick era & make it to safety or take my chances going to the bowels of the sinking ship, forgoing rescue & wait an undetermined amount time on a deserted island, I'd choose the later if it meant I saved this show.

3 killer shows in just a couple of months. 12/1 Stanley Theater. 12/26 Oakland and this gem. 35 min Scarlet/Fire then fat Samson,Terrapin 20 min Playing before drums. Brent has a great night for his early tenure with the band. I love Keith but the new blood is rocking. NFA 65-95

One of the more delightful Jerry lyric flubs on Scarlet....

She had rings on her fingers
And SHOES on her shoes
