this is a very hot show...but the show's "claim to fame" has got to be the most amazing kick ass, scorching version of Sugaree you will ever hear...the whole show is excellent but the Sugaree is truly "one for the ages"!

Sugaree-Here her Row Jimmy. Jerry does not want the solo to end, his fingers were on fire with dazzeling noodling.

5th of 6th time this sequence played. Last was 7.14.84, next and last 10.19.89.

Miracle>China Doll>GDTRFB-Only time played. China Doll has lovely slow pace w/perfect plucking.
E: Day Job(sigh)


another shout for that amazing sugaree

The Let It Grow from this show was spectacular--the walls felt like they were going to crack. Honest, I was thar.

My God! I havn't touched acid for at least 30 years and I thought I was flashing during Slipknot - Estimated Prophet. Brings back lots of memories.

GD Spring '85 -- '84 had passed and being their 20th anniversary, performances were looking up. The previous evening at the Springfield CC was a good, but not great opener. 1st set bordered on being lame, but some fine moments like Bertha. I really enjoyed the 2nd set. But the 2nd night is a hidden jewel; high energy and commanding musicianship throughout. It enjoyed all, but 1 1985 GD show I attended (out of 18 shows in 1985), but this is clearly an above average GD performance. Take a listen....
