My 2nd show. No stories, just a review of the music many years later.
.I’m listening to it now (for the first time maybe ever) as I write this. My first was at the US Festival and I’m about ˝ way through Jack Straw and I can tell that this was a much better show. (I was immediately hooked at US Fest, though). It’s funny how I have no memory of my early shows. But then again, I once got 150 pages into a book before realizing I’d read it before.

Jack Straw: Typically solid version, one of those songs they pulled off about every time. Monster finish with the last verse
Tennessee: solid. slippery . craps out at the peak, otherwise dynamite
El Paso: Rock solid. The best cowboy ballad ever written.
FOTD: Brent’s solo, subtle yet brilliant. Never liked Bob’s solo. Wish he would’ve gone back to soloing on China>Rider. Garcia brings it back to the bridge!!
OTRA: Hard to fuck up. They didn’t.
Touch: I really love the pre In The Dark Touches. So much better than after the album came out.
MSWS: Fun fun and well done.
Dire Wolf: also great
Lazy Lightning >> Supplication >> Deal is epic. Really worth a listen

Shakedown: the lyrics were an especial challenge tonight. The jam, however, was subtle and nasty. The best thing about Shakedown is that they all groove together. No one blasts out. This is a perfect example.
The lyrical challenges continued into Samson, false start, but the reboot put things on track.
I love Good Time Blues. Brent’s voice isn’t built for the blues (I learned to appreciate Brent songs by thinking about how they would be great Eagles songs) but it’s still a great song, I’ve heard better versions, later they finished on “right now I feel like Hell”. This one didn’t travel very far.
Terrapin brought the “I forgot the words” vibe back to the show. Jerry seems to miss a few cues. He comes in a beat early on “counting stars by candlelight” and then loses the theme on the outro a couple of times. Lets see what happens…
Drums… Space is amazing and the fade into Throwing Stones is fantastic. Just a few months old, it’s great, Bob pushes a bit too hard into NFA, which they’re patient with and and bring it up nicely and drifts into Morning Dew pretty sweetly. It’s a quick one, but rock solid, great ending.
Satisfaction: 2nd in 2 shows. Who woulda thunk?
Overall: 1st set was better than the 2nd. Maybe Jerry got high during the break? I’m giving this show a C+ (by Dead standards)
