Smoking show. The setlist doesn't do it justice.

The third show of the year is smoking indeed! At the very least, a Charlie Miller remaster of a Rango Keshavan AUD always is a treat. In this case, as in 10-09 and 10-10 also from ’82, 05-13-83, 12-31-84, 03-31-85, and 03-27-87, the recording and performance work beautifully together to create a memorable live experience, and to these ears, superior to the SBDs.

Bertha kicks things off with sprite energy, notably in Jerry’s great lead-in into the middle solo. The band feels frisky from the get-go. Jerry’s melodic inventiveness is great, and a special shout-out to Bobby and the Rhythm Devils too. A momentum-breaking Little Red Rooster disturbs the set’s flow. (I really can’t say how little these first set blues / Bobby covers [Wang Dang Doodle, Desolation Row, Queen Jane, C.C. Rider, It’s All Over Now] work for me.) An oddly placed El Paso and a set closing Minglewood makes it all feel kind of strange, no? A strong BEW, with Jerry taking four turns in the middle section, really peaks nicely and is followed by a nice drop into the “Delilah Jones” verse. Did something happen with the mics during Cassidy? Bob is barely audible. Hilarious guy belting out lyrics of "Candyman." The set ends strongly with a very odd sequence: El Paso, Althea, Minglewood. Really, you could look at this set from either end and it would work.

For being a first set song, this Alabama takes off and cooks the whole way through. I'm not a big fan of following it up with another set opener with Promised, but hey, that's how it goes sometimes. Phil is great in Lost Sailor, and the band generally responds by expanding their reach. The jam after Saint is feels like a distant relative of Spanish Jam. I wish it would have been longer. Space is adventurous and determined here, with a must-hear easy slip into The Other One. Jerry hits a figure before the 2:00 minute mark, and he squeezes the juice out of it before taking off to explore the upper register of his axe. All this before the first verse. The band quiets down to a whisper and then Phil busts out with the rumble. It's a great version of this classic tune. Stella Blue is the best song from this part of the set. The band is in fine form throughout this show, though special props go out to the first set for being prime time stuff. Recommended. Give it a bump, then pass it along to a friend.
