One of my favorite tapes. The shakedown is tremendous.

Jerry was smashed for the Shakedown..spits out liquor as he sings the opening verse. Good fun.

One of the all time great 'Shakedowns'
Overall, an awesome show

do yourself a favor.....listen to this Shakedown! Top 3 best Shakewon. Hands down
-Anonymous (01/09/2008)

best shakedown 12-31-81 in my eyes of course...
-Steve (09/25/2008)

Best Shakedown, by faaaaar, the studio version....Kidding!!
-billymunster (05/20/2009)

Solid Around & bone chilling Baby Blue vocally by Jerry...and it's the end of a 3 set show!

Why Baby Blue as an encore? It was sung for the wife of one of the band's roadies who'd died in a car accident (I believe that's what it was) earlier that week.

One of my favorite Shakedowns! And Steve Parrish's wife and baby daughter died in a car accident a few day's before.

Poor Steve, The guys from the dead have suffered some serious tragedy over their 30 years. Pig Pen, Keith, Jed Kesey, Brent, Graham, Parish's Family, and thats just the ones i can remember off the top of my head. It's amazing they stayed on the road and endured on. Definitely demonstrates some amazing comrodary within the group. Long Live the music, never stop rockin'.

Among the best Scarlet>Fire that I have ever heard. I would never state that the 80's were better than the 70's, but frankly, Fire on the Mountain (Shakedown and Estimated)did not really develop until after Keith left the band. Sure, May '77 was the best, but this Fire (and the transition from Scarlet) beats any from the 70's

... an ever-so-brief Mind Left Body Jam at about 1:53:08 on the YouTube vid.

First set is a lot stronger than second. Shakedown, Minglewood, Peggy-O, Jack Straw (mid-set!), Bird Song are all great, must-bump versions. Scarlet->Fire is great as well, and subdued in some ways, for reasons described in comments above. Enjoy and pass along to a friend.
-ED (03/24/2019)

On NYE they played the 52nd BUCKET! Yo!!!!!! That is awesome.
-Yo! (04/26/2019)

ED - That 2nd set was amazing. This was the year of the lightning bolt from the back of the civic.

Obviously, Shakedown was awesome (I didn't get into the building till maybe 14 minutes into it), but the 1st set was short. Bird Song was strong, but otherwise, the 1st set was typical 84.

the 2nd set was balls-out from start to finish. the Lovelight at the end.... creme de la creme.

- (12/11/2019)

Only time I made NYE; overall a bit disappointed by this stand -- maybe the car wreck?

Agreed about 12-31-81 shakedown as epic.

81 best of Brett years?

-john (12/18/2020)

Setlist is incorrect, the encore starts with Gimme some lovin. Baby Blue segues directly from Around and Around (thank god)

This shakedown is featured on the compilation So Many Roads. Just listened this morning! That’s some good stuff.
-E. Barnahaus Klufus (01/07/2021)

Check out on the FM version father Guido Sarducci in between Peggy-O & Jack Straw.

Ed, I echo you on 1st set better than the rest.
