Cool "California Earthquake"....Makes one feel proud to be a Californian.
"You'll Never Make Us Run"

pre-drums other one?!?!?

I wasn't at this one, but my EXPERT OPINION leads me to believe that the boys must have been smoking to play this set list-

actually, the first set was pretty nice, but everyone was thinking they were going to do the darkstar, and it never came. Second set starts out pretty nice with hey pocky, but it was pretty lackluster from there. Everyone one was trying, wanting "it" to happen, but it was just one of those nights. Not a bad show, but the energy to start the show...the crowd wanted it to be special, its just wasn't to be that night. Still lots of fun though
-For sure

the pre-drums other one is just instrumental. i have to agree that everyone was expecting a dark star and it was a letdown not to get it, but still a good show.

interesting to hear that, i love this show but i did not attend it. The first set rages, the Candyman is nice. Tennessee Jed is a little messy, but great Stuck Inside of Mobile and Promised Land, California Earthquake set closer. I love this pocky way, and the Scarlet and the Fire seem to have the same vibe as it. That Other One Jam is spectacular, and the drums>space is nice too. Great I Will Take You Home and this Other One is a good example of late 80's Other Ones. Anybody else like that Hey>Scarlet>Fire?

Maybe, just maybe, the best Spectrum show post 1973. I remember sitting there during the second set next to a buddy of mine and remarking that they don't play like this anymore...what is up? Lysergic energy bouncing off the Spectrum walls and all those inside. Half hour Other One. Fat grooves on Scarlet/Fire. Raucous Truckin. For those who think a show can't be complete without a Dark Star, too bad. I will tell you this for damn sure, they were in no hurry that night. They played long, they played loud, and they played great. I have been to a number of Dick's Picks shows and we all have our opinions...this is mine.

SO what if they didn't play DS. They didn't play it most of the 80's. Shows were still fantastic. I also have sneaking suspicion thats why they stopped playing it, because people would hear that it was played at one show and be expecting it at everyone. This band as way more then just DS, in fact DS is more a part of their beginings, they moved on from it after '74, guess a lot of folks didn't go along though. Well, i thought this show was absolutley beatiful. I really long drawn out truckin' after a rare (at this point) ScarFire. Hey Pocky is always groovin. I didn't quite dig the lacklust california Earthquake, the one in charlotte the next show was far headier. but just my opinion, breakouts are usually rough the firt go round. Great show no matter what i have to say about individual aspects, definitely worth your time.

Brokedown-Another excellent 89 version with Jerry's voice strong yet showing a little raspiness coalesced with Brent's harmonies. Very touching end to a classic show.
