Jerry's comeback show after the diabetic coma.

Touch of grey was a terrific way to get back into the groove.

if I could hear the opening Smashing of the B chord on "must be getting early..", i think I might flip out.

Touch of Grey was expected and naturally the audience went nuts, however when Jerry sings the line "Won't you tell everybody you meet that the Candyman's in town" that will send shivers down your spine. The sound of cheers was deafening. Awesome return

First Black Muddy River of 66 played.

I am listening to this show (via as I type. I was at the show before this and this is the first time I have heard this show. Just finished GSET - the energy in this show is pretty amazing. In fact, it was a random download and I didn't realize it was the "coma-back" show...I happened to notice the energy and did a bit of looking...have yourself a listen...a very nice evening, indeed!

Perfect (Touch) way for Jerry to say 'I'm Back!'

I remember liking Black Muddy River the first time it was played; seemed like none of my friends did. Never did a song fit Jerry's voice better.

... we were so glad to have Jerry & the boyz back to the BAY Area after the canceled Late Summer/Fall 1986 Tour.
We started in Buffalo on the 4th of July & flew down to DC for the July 6 & 7th shows. Everyone knows the DC shows would never be rated as top of the class, but with Jerry not up to par & the 100 degree weather we still enjoyed.
We then hit the road from Buffalo to spend July & August in Colorado & was looking towards the Red Rock shows, but sadly were cancelled. So being in Limbo we hit the road again & headed to SF to finish out 1986.

We ordered up the three mid-December shows in Oakland & also were lucky enough to get the whole New Years 4 show package at the Henry J.

1986 was a year when the sky was yellow & the sun was blue & we had Jerry back! Who could have asked for more.
