I have an interesting (at least it's interesting to me) story about this show. I wasn't actually at this concert, I couldn't have been. I was born 4-3-86, in Hartford. Needless to say, the encore speaks to me.

That is a very profound statement...Who the hell says that?

1st set highlights are Peggy-O and Supplication which became rare after 86.

2nd set had average UJB>Playin and 15th of 16th performance of Don't Need Love. Only performed between 84-86, nothing special Brent song.

My silver anniversary show!! #25. 19 then, 43 now. Supplication Jam, Don;t need Love. Other than that, pretty standard.

Another shining example to prove that no matter where the boys were in their tour they always had a special affinity for Hartford CT. No matter either if it was a high calorie or low calorie Setlist - they always managed to be on here. Second set is seamless, ethereal, and just there. FING smoking.

These Spring '86 shows are actually quite good and offer some tasty treats. The 1st set includes a wonderful Bird Song > Supplication Jam > Let It Grow

While the 2nd set includes a nice Playin' and a well executed Other One > Wharf Rat.

Mr. Miller just posted an excellent soundboard of this show.There aren't many soundboards from the 80's that sound as good as this one does. Check it out.
