If you want to start talking about best shows EVER-this one would be worthy of discussion...

I should have said 2 set-
the 1st was short, but hopefully some of the 2nd set will be a View from the Vault some day.

im with mark. definately worthy of mention in the "best ever" category. short 1st set but LOTS of energy. even the "row jimmy" just sounded full of enthisiasm. the 2nd set was just HAW DROPPING. far and away and without question THE BEST "franklins" ever done. we almost passed out dancing. just a truly amazing show. one of many that were lost during one of my moves. please email me if anyone has a copy!! peace to all. jake

okay, that was "Jaw dropping" :)
and again, if anyone has a copy please send an email. it would make my decade to have a copy of this show and/or 4/9/91


ps- check out this "masterpiece".
Jerry sings throughout most of the song, and he and bob are just BELTING out the lyrics from about the halfway point. its nothing short of inspiring.

I have to say I agree with most of the posts about the second's right near the top of my tape list, even though I just found this show recently. Bobby's sounding a little ragged, especially during LLR, but it doesn't detract from the show overall.

Terrapin is utterly beautiful, and the Lovelight had me dancing in my dorm room.

I was there too.....really good show. Great songs.....but for god sakes I wish Vince was a lot lower in the mix.

I made it 23 shows before Jerry up and died on us and this was far and away my favorite. I always thought it should be mentioned in the "all-time" lore but figured that was a biased opinion. Glad to hear that others here feel the same. Vince was on fire, especially in that Franklin's. His shining moment with the band, for sure. Everything was top notch. Even Space was somethign out of the ordinary. Notice that there were no "new" songs played at this show. Killer good time.

Just heard this show on What a smoker! The space was incredible with bits of Elvis circling through the air. A Bralove classic!

This show deserves a Dave's Pick Release.

fun show. hot Hot HOT, but nobody got struck by lightning this night :-)
not at all convinced it would rank amongst the best shows ever. Amongst the 40+ shows I saw (starting in 87), I wouldn't place it in my top 10, both for the music or sheer entertainment value of the whole circus experience, but it certainly didn't suck. but shakedown on the main drag til the wee hours of the night was a hoot. about the only thing about these shows that did suck was several hundred heads sucking down $2 heineken's from the circus circus. LOL
