This was a phenomenal show! out of the 50 or so I went to, this was one of the best 3 or 4. Jerry's voice was really on for Terrapin. I have never been able to get a good quality tape of this show. If anyone has one, please contact me.

before the NFA opener, they played the beer barrel polka! crazy energy to start the show, but it kinda fizzled by the end of the set, with everyone walking off after tennessee jed leaving phil alone on stage shrugging his shoulders. the second set was better, the jam after terrapin was cool and the dragon drums for chinese new year was a real treat. the place was decorated for chinese new year and the chinese symphony orchestra of san francisco opened up the show.

NFA Opener - Without a warning, right into the chorus. Brilliant.\
Sugaree -> Wang Dang Doodle - Intersting combo, the Sugaree was nothing to really write home about.
Jack-A-Roe - Really enjoying the laid back versions of the late 80's
Cassidy was a crazy ride through space. Then Tennessee Jed sorta ends abruptly and so does the set.

Set two starts off with a bang from Hell in a Bucket, then (Suprisingly)Scarlet simmers the set to a quiet point, before LLR peers out of the mist and builds into an OK Terrapin. I've heard far better versions before, this one sounded like they were on total auto pilot. No real flourishes or explosions, just buisiness as usual. The post drums section certainly helps the vibe overall, but by the end of lovelight, they all sound like they just want a nap. So Black Muddy River sooths the soul down to sleep. Not a great show, but certainly a solid one.
