Short first sets for this run in Expo, but it was a Rex Benefit run and they were having opening acts from three groups or people Rex had awarded money to in the year of 1992. The first night was David Grisman's Band, the 2nd was Peter Apfelbaum & the Hieroglyphics Ensemble and this night was Pharoah Saunders. The opening acts were a great and a wonderful bonus, so we could forgive the short first sets.

As far as the show itself, the Birdsong is something to be reckoned with and the Second Set was just continuous magic and inspired playing.

It was also the 3rd show where they did not repeat a song. In the first 7 shows of this '92 May run (including Expo, Shoreline & Vegas) they would play 97 different songs!!! Impressive!

My 27th show of 82. Standing on the Moon had me in tears. Just beautiful.

This show did very little for me. Bird Song was pretty good with a nice crescendo during the extended jam, but the rest of the first set was entirely forgettable with Jerry seemingly not really interested in engaging with the guitar. The second set was a little better as they started out with a fairly respectable Scarlet/Fire & a great Rhythm Devils segment, but by the end it was clear that Jerry and the boys were out of steam and ready to go home. I can't think of a less inspired / low energy Lovelight than this version at the end of the second set.

I listen to a lot of Dead, and I try to balance my library with late era shows. However, a show like this does not motivate me to seek out additional performances from the final years. I think I need to go listen to a good '77 power set to flush this show from my ears and consciousness.
