the first set to this puppy is unreal. the bird song--normally just an okay, but nice tune--has a sick jam.

2nd set has a great version of brent's "don't need love". gotta wonder why he stopped playing it?

rumor has it that jerry hated that song

for very obvious reasons i think


birdsong just normally an ok???
yeah right

Caution: Do not drive and listen to drums-space from this show!

I love this show, I have a special fondness for it. And I agree space and drums is a dangerous thing to listen to in public, I got the tripping feeling on the bus because of it....

Flawless, perfectly played show!!!

This was probably the best night of music for the run. Dark Star not withstanding, this night has more soul, and the boys are definitely warmed up after taking a few days off after alpine. The set just flowed better and the jams were more energetic. The previous two nights were phenominal musical journeys, but this one is just a step above. Plus, i have a soft spot for Brokedown, since they usually close really good runs with it. Then JBG as a second encore just proves my point, they normally reserved double encores for really trancendant shows. Just an opinion though.

And to the anonymous comenter, i really doubt Jerry HATED that song, i don't think jerry hated anything, cept maybe sobriety. I'm kidding, but who knows, could be more truth then i realize in that statement.

I can't believe you said that about "Bird Song!"

45th BUCKET! Jerry strummed 2 wrong notes.

Don't Need "Don't Need Love"

Jerry walked offstage during DNL at Starlight in Kansas City, Missouri 9-3-85, too.

I actually liked Brent and think he was a great addition to the band, possibly their best exploding keyboardist, but the song had no business in a Grateful Dead show, not even as a cover, and not even as finely as Brent played & sang it typically.

Despite its presence in this show, this show smokes.

Used to get down on Brent, because his delivery was so raw, but now I really like the dimension he brought. Not all that Don't Worry, Be Happy! schtick.
Wouldn't think Jerry hated it. Brent was always completely down for ALL of it. I think Jerry liked his level of commitment.

I saw the Dancin' > Bertha the following week. I loved it.. but this opener blows it away... Fucking Bird Song!
