Baby Blue-Very good version all around. Jerry's voice is rock solid while the boys and quite tight.
-Brianmerrilyn (04/26/2008)

99th, and last time Passenger is played. Short, but sweet 5 year run of this rocker.
-AC Dead Head (07/24/2009)

I remember Joan Baez as a guest singer during some shows in this Oakland NYE run. Free camping outside by Lake Merritt & Bill Graham "bluejackets" handing out soup before the show. Good Times!
