I love this Shakedown- check that, I love the entire second set. Ship Of Fools is particularly beautiful as well.
"Wer'e gonna beg your indulgence and do another slow song..." Bobby before He's Gone

i'll agree on this one. . .stellar second set. especially the He's Gone>Jam>Other One

he's gone>O1 oh my god.....

Greatest>great funky Phil intro & funny Bobby quip "we probably won't get that one right next time either"

Easy To Love You-funny banter prior w/Jerry & Bobby talking about getting things just exactly perfect. Brent's voice is silky smooth w/6 months in to the band

The band cuts Easy To Love You short after the 1st chorus and segues into Althea. Unexpected transition.

the above noted Bobby quip is pretty humorous. Shakedown thumps, and Bobby says "quiet, he's trying to think" just before Jerry begins Ship of Fools... great version with some extra oomph in the solo.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (09/30/2019)
