Comments:

a very tight and tasty show!! the "most valuable player" on this one, in my opinion, was brent! even though he had only been with the band a few months he was truly making some sweet contributions in his rookie year! when you listen to this show you will note that he was adding some very nice "color" to each song! the scarlet>fire is one of the longest of all time!
-


while it is a great scarlet>fire, it is not near one of the longest ever, 25 min is a common length. Great scarlet/fire though. john
-


The Playin' and Lazy -> Supplication are also hot. Great sound from acheive.com
-


A fine groove thru out, but it's Brent and Bob that keep that going. Jerry seems uninterested in many parts, and the Terrapin is one of the most lethargic versions I've heard. Jerry sounds like he drank a bottle of NyQuil before it......

I
Alabama-9th/142 times played. JG solo's nifty.
Althea-16/272 times played

II
Scarlet>Fire>Samson>Terrapin>Playin'
7/7th time this sequence played.

Sailor>Saint>Wharf Rat>Truckin
Only time this sequence played.
Jerry's voice was good on Wharf, but as Daredevil mentioned, Jerry is by and large absent from the 2nd set.

1st set Brent sounds fantastic. 2nd set Scarlet's groove is Way off- just not clicking. Lethargic like someone else said about Terrapin

This Dave's list program is BS. Go all the way to check out and their site freezes up. Money grab plain and simple
-Ray (07/19/2019)


Too funny Ray. Maybe subscribe, no worries, sit back and let the releases roll in all year. Cheap poor fool, get a real job. No money grab, lol.

I was recycling cans all of last Fall being creepy in front of all the grocery stores and passed out behind the dumpster. Shit my pants too!
-Ray (07/27/2019)


Hey RMD, I have no reason to order the script. I still have over 450 - 90min Maxells so I really don't need every one they put out. My point being is their site sucks. Dealing with Deadnet sucks.
And the biggest money grab in all this is this karaoke act called The Dead
