good 90's show. Awesome Lovelight. Weak encore.

Awesome Lovelight? You might try listening to a Lovelight from say 1969. They had this guy Ron McKernan on keyboards. He was a pretty darn good blues singer. You should check it out.
(Also the encore was pretty nice as BMRs go).

Sometimes I feel like people are possessed by Pigpen, because anytime someone compliments a Lovelight from any period after '72 it's the same comment, more or less. Like a Lovelight isn't worthy of anyone's ears if it's not sung by Pigpen. Pig was a great blues singer, I can never deny or argue that, but Bob Weir came into his own, vocally speaking, after pigpen left. He may not have the same pain in his voice that pig did, but pig also drank himself to death, which might explain the tone of his voice. Bob Weir can't top pigpen, but he can certainly hold his own. Plus, the jams between jerry and brent on Lovelight are fun to dance to just as much as the early Lovelights are. It made for a good end to sets. But to each their own.

This show was pretty good too, not as high energy as the previous night, but still a fine performance by all. although I noticed that brent is sounding a little more strung out, in his voice at least, during Dear Mr. Fantasy. But to leave on a happy note, the revamped version of Loose Lucy may not have the same pep as the '74 versions (Can't get enough of any '74 show personally), the song has a nice groove to it that jerry seems to like. And the BMR is a song about coming to the end of your life, it's supposed to be a little sad, but is still very well played.

I'm sure Nick meant for a Bob Lovelight. Just my opinion having seen seen many Bob Lovelights...they do not compare to a Pig version, not even close.

Oh, i don't doubt that one bit, but i still appreciate the fact that he tried. Bobby Has a Rock and Roll voice, and Pig Pen was Blues straight from the soul. I just can't understand people feel they have to decide between one and the other, they both have their moments.

I don't think Ron would have ever sang Mexi-Blues or One More Sat-Nite,,every Saturday show

Pig never sang a note that wasn't flat and he couldn't play the organ for shit. He's the main reason I can't get into 66-71.

... so good to hear "Loose Lucy" brought back after a hiatus from 1974 ..

Cross my heart and hope to die, I was just hanging out with the other guys, singing, "Thank you, for a real good time!"
Sweet Jerry!

Pigpen is great and all but I much prefer a quick Bobby Lovelight...tough to listen to a 28 minute Pig version.
-WHO CARES (11/01/2022)

I hear ya Phil. The Who sucked until Kenny Jones replaced Keith Moon (because everybody knows that if you drink you can't play for sh--). And Starship was way better than the Jefferson Airplane. And WHO CARES is also right - Why should a song by Bobby (Blue) Bland sound like the Blues? Jeezus.
