A rare Chinaless Rider...and a damn good run of shows in Sacramento!

i can hardly express how much this show meant(means)to me and the course my life took after it.........the three show run was unbelievable! what 24 songs the 1st night then 15 and the shows were both equal !!!!!!! jerry was on fire PLAYIN> RIDER are you shittin me

Heavy. 1st 1/2 of 2cnd set just amazing. My favorite Hey Pocky way, check out Brent-Phil-Jerry during the jam. And Playin-rider, I remember being deep into the jam then sensing Rider, the crowd just came more and more alive peaking with Phil's bass notes before "I'd shine my light..". Check it out )

Saturday Night to start off the know it's only going to get better from there on in...

Playin'>Rider> that is some combo. Jerry gives his last breath on "a north bound train" part of Rider after a seamless transistion from Playin'

SOTM-10TH of 75 times played.

Good show w/2 rare Brent Tunes "We Can Run" and Hey Pocky Way.

You're calling "Hey Pocky Way" a "Brent Tune" just because he sings it? Does that make "Stuck Inside of Mobile" a Bobby tune? I don't think so . . .

Hey knowtoreus, well, yes, it does make SIOM a Bobby tune in this context. He's not talking about who wrote, but who sang it that night dumass.
-Steve (11/11/2013)

On top of what my learned friend steve has said, it is also a brent tune considering they stopped playing it after he died. last one is 7/22/90 i believe. And yes, SIOM is a bobby tune, just like Queen Jane and Desolation Row, Bob Dylan may have wrote it, but Bobby is the one who sang em, which i'm assuming means he was the one who decided the band should play em. Context is everything.
