Other then this being the first post-Brent Big Railroad Blues, this show is pretty average. they were tight and clean most of the way through, little hiccup in Black throated woman, but a good show regardless. Just no really over the top "dead" moments. This is just a solid show.

Meant Black Throated Wind
-Murphy (07/29/2014)

We loved the 1st Deercreek show back in '89 and kicked ourselves for skipping the 2 stellar shows in '90. Taking calculus in summer school that year, w/ sweltering/sticky Ohio humidity, no AC, no funds, & a campus as dry as the desert, is still painful to think about.

In '91 however, life was good, my mother was at the right place at the right time - returning video tapes next to the Ticketmaster office the minute Deercreek tickets went on sale. Being a mother, she walked right to the front of the line & used her mindpower to score me a pair of tickets for each night.

Somehow we interpreted our "Row 0 Center" tickets to mean Row "Zero" - you know, the row that's right in front of Row 1. We stood there with shit-eating grins, praising my mother's greatness until we were corrected & bumped by someone who not only had proper 1st Row tickets, they knew the English alphabet. For the record, 0 is the 15th letter of the alphabet & our 15th row center seats were prime & the acoustics better than any Healy soundboard. There's actually a nice video of the 1st Set taken right by us.

This was the night I became a true fan of Bruce Hornsby, the best living piano player on planet earth. Back then I remember thinking, that's "The Way It Is" guy? Absolutely. Bruce was all over the keys, eyeballing Jerry & smiling ear-to-ear. Best, Jerry was smiling too as they teased notes back & forth playing off each other's vibe. As much fun as we were having, Bruce was clearly blissed out.

The soundboard recordings are beautiful & the raging Jack Straw set the stage for a terrific & giddy show to kick off the midwest Summer Tour. TLEO was beautiful but one of the show's highlights is Wang Dang Doodle. Even today, this is still my all-time favorite version. From the initial noodling that teased the opening rif, Jerry was going to "midi-town" w/ crazy funky baritone sax-sounding bluesy goodness. Play it, play it loud. Although the rest of the show may have a 'standard' setlist on paper, this gig was a raging good time, it was beautiful day, the band was loose & their playing exceptional. Deercreek was always a difficult ticket to score & this pair of shows confirms why. Good times...

I think I prefer Black-Throated Woman better! Once you go black, you never go back they say.
