Love this show!!...First half of the second set is priceless. A rare second set "Jack Straw" rocks. The vocals at the end of "He's Gone" are a classic and this flows perfectly into the first "Smokestack Lightnin" since the early 70's. A must have show!!

this one is "white hot" incredible energy level is maintained from start to finish. some highlights for me is the nice "dancin" to kick things off...not the "disco" version folks but the real deal...the hot and funky version!! the help>slip>franklins is a beautiful piece of music...check this one out gang!

unreal show...Makes me wish I could have tripped with the dead back in 68

This was a great show for me personally. This was somehthing like my 15th show and up until this point I haven't head Jack Straw, Help, Slipnot/Franklines, He's Gone and Smoekstack. So this was pretty cool. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this was the first Smokestack played in many years. Also I believe this may have been John Lennons Birthday (but I might be wrong again).

Donna was just so beautiful during this show. She is just so beautiful, and her voice is beautiful. Long live Donna!
-Tim got your dates mixed up. Donna was gone for 5 years when this show happened

Althea-Esau-I enjoyed this combo. Great story telling songs by Jerry and Bobby.

Let It Grow-The boys were mighty tight this evening as mentioned above. Jerry's solo's seem to go into various tangets but all wrapped back together in perfect fashion.

You're right about Tim being mixed up on his dates, but I think he likes Donna a little too much. Just a little TOO much. lol Smoking hot show from start to finish. The band is definately "on" during this one. Check it out

Best of my 75 shows. From smoking Dancin' through the Revolution encore (on John Lennon's birthday)this show was blazing. Scorching Big Railroad, Help/Slip/Franklins top notch, 2nd set Straw!! Energy level never dips in this one.

10/9/84 should be an official release! It gets old that the official releases are between 1969-1978. I was at this eighties show--magic from start to finish.

Smokestack without the Pig? Come on man.......the only thing worse than 80s dead is 90s dead.

The only show my old man ever made it to! Been following along this fall tour day-by-day and this one really is magic. Felt like I needed a breather after the second set! Help-Slip-Frank into Jack Straw-He's Gone-Smokestack-D/S left me floored. Must listen!

Was headed the next day solo with a backpack to Europe for the first time. Very nervous about the trip -- not exactly sure where I was going.

This is the ONLY show I ever attended where I got in because someone inside popped open the side door. (Yes, I feel guilty).

At the end for the encore we got Revolution, and my mind was put at ease about my upcoming adventure: "Don't you know it's going to be... alright!"

For some reason, Sirius is playing a shitty AUD of this show. Most of the full shows they play are crispy boards. So I clicked that link above just below the setlist and the first copy available is a matrix that sounds ten times better than what Sirius is playing.
-Anonymous (07/22/2022)

So, I do prefer the previous night of this two night run, but you look at the set list from tonight and it would be hard not to play this one and find plenty to like. For me, there's a few too many flubs from Jerry, and the whole pre-drums second set, while certainly an interesting sequence, doesn't quite get there for me. I like post-drums a lot more here. This is certainly a generous list of songs, though, and some unique things with a second set Jack Straw and that Smokestack. Just don't sleep on the previous night, folks.
