this is not a correction, but I think I remmeber good lovin going into lovelight and being in shock

it's a good thing you note it's not a correction, cause your wrong

other than the fact that they didn't do "Jack Straw" on the 4th of July...this is a very fine show with some very nice versions of "Cumberland Blues" and "Row Jimmy" in the first set.
The "Help>Slip>Franklins" must have had the whole place up "shakin' their bones"!
The "U.S. Blues" encore was the obvious choice for this Independence Day show!

the venue was attached to a hotel. post show the connecting doors opened up & the party was on. Stayed in the 12th or 14th floor. Suddenly a voice came over a loudspeaker into the hotel room... "smoke alarms on the 10th & 11th floors have gone off...all guests on floors 1-9 evacuate, guests on floors 12 and up prepare to be evacuated" But no worries, just smoke bombs in the stairwells or something...Iowa was a dry state for fireworks but we had all driven up from the Kansas City shows the night before, plenty of shopping ops!

Attended show. This was a very strong, well-played 1st set. All songs great..Row Jimmy oustanding.
I recall driving to this show from KC at night and seeing tons of police cars on the side of the interstate.
I found out later, one of the deadhead buses (Rainbow bus) had gone off the road and the driver, Paul, had been killed. Very sad...
This is the reason for the dedication just before He's Gone.
This was a great show, however, from start to end.

I was going to ask why this was the last time the boys ever played in Iowa, but birdsong4all answered that for me. I guess the gov't of IA said no more. Pitty, some damn good shows cam out of Iowa.

They did tease Lovelight during Good Lovin, Bobby letting Phil know to push back and wait.They teased it did the night before during NFA in KC. They finally pulled it out in Alpine two shows later.

42nd BUCKET! And Jerry was keeping track of that.

There is a one camera video of this show... the sound is great but the quality of the video is commensurate with the quality of the cameraman... poor. (If you were the cameraman and you're reading this, I would not have been better)
